Story
Birdie is a 1.5 year old girl with the most beautiful and striking striped coat. She is snuggly and playful and LOVES her kitty foster siblings.

She has bonded quickly to her patient foster Mom and loves to snuggle up and take naps with foster Dad. Once she knows she's safe she wants all of the love. She gets the zoomies a lot and she’s lightening fast!! She enjoys taking naps on her cat tree and bird watching out the window! She also loves like any toy! Apply today to meet this little gem.

Story
Rue was most certainly someone's beloved pet at some point. This beautiful girl found herself homeless but thankfully found her way to one of our foster homes where she has been taken care of as an outside kitty for sometime! Seeing how friendly she was and with this recent cold weather, the foster decided to bring Rue in and see if she might be a good candidate for an indoor cat and for adoption! And she was! This girl is so affectionate and loves to rub and snuggle. She LOVES toys and cannot get enough affection from her people. She is a pro biscuit maker and lap kitty. Unfortunately in Rue's time having to survive on her own, she picked up FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). This is a virus that she will always have and is only spread through bites. It is not spread through saliva or sharing bowls with other cats. With this virus Rue can live a full and healthy life but per local laws, must be adopted in the state of Missouri. She should go to a home where she is the only cat, where there are other FIV cats, or where there are other friendly cats and no risk of bites would take place. This virus is not contagious to people or dogs! This girl is precious and we are so thrilled she let us rescue her. Please apply today to add her to your family. If you are interested in meeting Rue, please fill out an application via our website at https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/TRP/Cat and we will get back to you via email once your application has been reviewed. If you have further questions please feel free to reach out to us at adoptionstrp@gmail.com. This will get you the fastest response. Rue's adoption fee is $75 and includes age appropriate vaccines, spay, microchip, and testing for feline leukemia and FIV. All cats adopted from The Rescue Project are intended to be indoor only cats.

Story
Baxter is a 3 year old male cat who was rescued after showing up at a kind persons job site. He is in a foster home with both small dogs and cats. It takes him awhile to warm up to new animals but he was recently introduced to 2 new foster cats in his foster home and is doing great with them! He would prefer that other animals respect his personal space and he will let them know when they are too close. Baxter just wants to be with his person! Foster mom says he has become quite the lap cat. It doesn’t matter if she is holding 3 dogs on her lap, Baxter finds a way to get in her lap for some snuggles. He does love to play with the cat toys, just lounge around on the back of the couch, look out the window and watch the birds. Since he was found outside, he will need a diligent owner who will make sure he doesn’t escape out an open door. We recommend no young children who could accidently let him outside. He would do fine with older children/teens. Apply today to meet this sweet gentleman. If you are interested in meeting Baxter, please fill out an application via our website at https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/TRP/Cat and we will get back to you via email once your application has been reviewed. If you have further questions please feel free to reach out to us at adoptionstrp@gmail.com. This will get you the fastest response.

Story
Cooper is a 7 year old male, and the most kind and loving cat. He enjoys climbing his tower and lying in the sun. He loves to cuddle. He has had to move a couple times due to owners moving and landlords not allowing him to stay. He does have an inoperable tumor in his right ear, and he shakes his head often which can leave residue like ear wax around. This has deterred some previous owners. He also does at times, scratch carpet. He’s been an indoor and outdoor cat before though and would do fine with the combination. Overall, Cooper is a low maintenance and loving cat. He deserves a forever home to share his love with, one where he can settle in without yet another rehome.

Story
Boots is a sweet, snuggly boy who needs a child-free, pet-free home. We adopted him in early 2021 when he was about 3 years old. Bringing him home to our current cats and young children created a stressful environment for him to where he eventually ended up living exclusively in our primary bedroom. We've tried many techniques to help him feel more comfortable but in the 3 years since he joined our family nothing seems to have stuck in easing his anxieties. He never instigates a fight with another cat nor does he ever hurt either of our children. He's incredibly gentle and loving and finding a new home for him comes with great difficulty and heartache. We love Boots. We love how playful and cuddly he is. We love how patient he is. But he doesn't feel comfortable leaving our bedroom for any extended period of time leading him to a day in/day out routine of loneliness. He wants to be a lap cat. He just needs that from a safe, loving home that doesn't have small children or other cats.
