My story

Mama Kyi was adopted out as a barn cat and somehow left her new home and was found by a good samaritan.  The person traced her microchip back to ASHA, and we of course took her back into rescue.  While at ASHA for the second time, Mama Kyi met Daddy Ox, and the 2 cats took a liking to each other.  

Daddy Ox and Mama Kyi are fostered together and doing so well! They will likely never be lap kitties, but their foster Mom reports they are still sweet, affectionate kitties who like to be near people. She says they make progress every day, becoming more confident and comfortable. They will rub on their foster Mom's legs at feeding time and enjoy being petted, even if it's on their own terms. Daddy Ox likes to sleep at the end of his foster Mom's bed, and Mama Kyi will sometimes even let her foster Mom rub her belly. 

Daddy Ox and Mama Kyi are also very playful. They love their toys and playtime with their foster Mom. They also have great scratching habits and use their scratchers all the time. 

We are confident these two kitties will continue to blossom in the right home. A quiet, adults-only home would be best. Please NO children under age 12. 

If you are looking for two beautiful, amazing cats who really deserve a chance at forever, please consider putting in an application.  

Interested in adopting one of our kitties?!

The first step in the adoption process is the adoption application which is located on our website There is a $15 application fee which is subtracted from the adoption fee. Make sure your application fee is submitted via our website and not on the Petstablished portal. 

Our website includes a lot of info, including a FAQ page with lots of answers.

Once your application is reviewed we will contact you to schedule the home check video chat to ensure that you have all the basic supplies set up in an isolation/ introduction room and there are no health hazards to the cat in your home. We can also help answer any additional questions you may have at this time.

Next is the meet and greet with you and the adoptable kitty you're interested in. We are a foster system so we do not have a facility. Visits to meet an adoptable animal at a foster family is by appointment only. In the rare case that you decide your initial kitty isn't the right fit, we can introduce you to our many other types of cats to find the right fit.

Once you have settled on your new furry family member, the next step is to complete and sign the adoption contract with an ASHA volunteer to finalize the adoption.

Adoption Fees: $150 for kittens and cats under 5 years old and $125 for cats 5 years old and older.  We do offer a 15% discount for adopting 2 ADULT cats (over 1 year old) at once.
