My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

With her round, benevolent face and clipped ear from time spent as part of a feral colony, Trumpet is a gentle girl, perhaps a little rough around the edges but with a heart of pure gold. Trumpet would be happiest either as an only cat or in a home with another older, calm kitty. Come meet this sweet girl soon and see if just might be the one to win your heart! Approx. DOB: 03/01/2007

'Sponsored' means that Trumpet's adoption fee has been covered in full by a generous donor. That means you can take her home for free, and spend that saved adoption fee on more food, litter, and toys for your new friend!

If interested in adopting from the Goathouse Refuge, please plan to take the following steps required in our adoption process:
1. Come for a Visit: We are open 11am - 3 PM Saturday and Sunday. Fridays are by appointment.
2. Complete our online application: Visit our website (click link above or go to under the 'adopt' tab).
3. Home Visit: All adoption applications will be reviewed by the refuge staff, and if the applicant seems to be a good fit for the cat(s) of interest, the refuge will contact the interested party to set up a home visit. Only after a representative of the refuge conducts a home visit will the refuge then consider continuing with the adoption process.

More about this rescue

Siglinda Scarpa is a potter and a sculpter who owns 3 acres of fenced-in property in which she houses up to 258 homeless cats.The Refuge is a sanctuary for these cats, who never have to leave, but if they are adoptable, the cats are posted on our website and taken to adoption events in the community. The more cats that we find homes for, the more cats we can rescue.
