My story

Meet Hickory, a handsome white and gray, short-haired 2 year old. He came to us with his mom, Constance and brother, Hunter on the Freedom Ride  year ago Thanksgiving from a high-kill shelter when their time had run out. The kill shelter we usually pull from actually told us about this little family that was in a neighboring kill shelter because they were so sweet and gentle and they were worried they would not make it out.

Hickory is a sweet cat. He is fairly quiet and low-profile at first, but he is playful and loving and comes to you for affection.. He enjoys eating (what guy doesn't!) and playing with toys and loves doing Zoomies around the house. He can be held and pet and enjoys affection. He is shy at first but warms up within a day or two.

Hickory is neutered, received 2 - 3 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration - you won't need to pay to renew every year. He is ready to come home now to an approved home. Please contact us for an application at or call 540.717.4420.

More about this rescue

Our rescue is dedicated to the cats that have been forgotten - strays that are shy and frightened, abandoned cats that once had a home and are trying to come into a home for shelter, cats that need a little more TLC than most to trust again.

These cats are struggling on our streets to be noticed, struggling for survival. They need our love, our compassion, our help.

They are the forgotten cats.
The cats that most rescues "don't have time for."

ALL cats deserve love.
ALL cats deserve a good home.
ALL cats deserve to be treated with respect and given care.

Given time, love, and nurturing, these cats become wonderful, loving housecats.

Our rescue is for the forgotten cats. In my home, they are known as the Shrinking Violets, and I have fought for their right to be loved, receive care, and the respect they deserve. Please join me with your support.
