Story
**We are assisting family with the adoption of this pair** Bonnie and Clyde are a bonded pair of cats and will need to be adopted together. These two have gorgeous light and dark orange tabby coloring and are larger size cats. Bonnie is a little more reserved and takes a little more time to come around to new people but once she is comfortable, she's happy to play and loves face rubs. Clyde is more outgoing and is very friendly. He loves playing with toys and a laser light. This duo loves treats and would love a new home with room to explore. Bonnie and Clyde were adopted from a shelter together as kittens but their owner (who cared for them like they were his children) has passed away and they are searching for a new home and family where they can be pampered once again. They were the only animals in the home with an older gentleman, but did enjoy playtime with grandchildren when they would visit. They have never been outdoors so indoor only homes are the best fit for them. Please contact if you would love to give these two another chance at a great home together!

Story
  Delilah is a sweet and gorgeous girl born in June 2023.  She is a unique gal because she is a "fetcher". She loves for you to toss a spring or other toy for her and she will fetch it and bring it back for you to throw again.  She is also quite the conversationalist and when you talk to her, she will talk back.  She gets along with other kitties and would prefer to go to a home with another kitty.  Delilah is spayed, microchipped and up to date on shots. If you are interested please complete an application on stffar.org and we can set up a meet and greet.February 23, 2024, 2:34 pm

Aili is the most entertaining kitten of her litter. She loves to play with springs and pretty much anything that moves.  Once she trusts you, she is very sweet and cuddly, enjoys having her chin scratched and being pet and held. She will require a patient person to build up her trust.  Aili needs to go to a home with another cat to give her some courage.  She enjoys playing with her brother Frank but is not bonded with him.  February 23, 2024, 2:34 pm

Story
Lizabet came to us pregnant. She was a stray searching for food. She became to big and round she just laid on her belly to eat. She loves to have her belly rubbed especially when she was pregnant. She gave birth to 5 kittens and was a very good mother but she became sick and sadly we were not able to save her babies. She has been in mourning over her babies. I’ve never seen a cat so sad. She still enjoys her belly rubs and affection. We hope she finds a loving home so she get over the loss of her babies and just enjoy life not having to search for food. She has been completely vetted and microchipped. To apply visit STFFAR.orgFebruary 23, 2024, 2:34 pm

Story
Interested parties can fill out the adoption interest form on our website - http://www.hsaconline.org/adopt.html Jinnie loves to be around people though she isn't really the cuddly type. She's very content to watch birds and other animals while sitting in a window or on her cat tree. And every window is her favorite window! She likes to chase feathers on a string or the laser around the house. Jinnie has recently decided to sleep in the bed for naps and at night, she will make biscuits until it's just right for a nap! She tends to be up by 7 am patiently waiting on her food and then after a bit of activity, she takes her daily nap. She is active again in the afternoon. She is most talkative when you make her food, and will often respond to "hey" with her meow-styled hey. She is litter box trained and was previously fostered in a house with cats and dogs and they coexisted. She would hiss at the pooch and find higher ground, To be fair, she was taking care of four kittens and was a little overwhelmed by it all. She loves head and neck scratches! Most other places are off-limits. She enjoys being picked up and carried around for a little while as well. The adoption fee includes age-appropriate vaccinations, microchips, and spay/neuter surgery.

Story
Rescued at 4 weeks old in late August 2022, after being found at a managed cat colony.   Foster kitty Mason update: I have spent the last several weeks getting to know Mason (aka Bubby) and he is a doll! Based on his long, lean, muscular appearance (with a long tail), we think he is part Orange Egyptian Mau. Did I mention his gorgeous spots on the back half of him? And oh, how he loves to be petted. On Suoerbowl Sunday, I already had two cats between my feet when he decided to lay across my lap. He loves to plop down and chill right across your lap, leg, etc. Mason is very laid back and chill and almost 2 years old. He absolutely loves a wand toy with a feather 2nd to only wet food. And he definitely has learned the sound of me shaking the treats. Overall, Mason is very laid back and chill and would do best in a house with a buddy or two as long they are not mean or aggressive. Unfortunately, my senior girl has recently taken a disliking to poor Mason and he’s so scared of her.  He gets along great with the other resident cats and I’ve included a pic or two of him with them. Please help me find him the perfect home soon!!! #sparklecatrescue ##1520845##

Story
Rescued as a kitten in the summer of 2018, NASH is a quiet, shy, sweet boy patiently waiting for his purrfect home. He was in another foster home until last fall and then we had to move him and his sister Lyra. It took them both about 6 months to acclimate to their new surroundings and feel comfortable with people. They both are content hanging out in one room and are good with other kitties. Nash likes to hang out in several spots: toy basket (obviously), and cat tower cube, cat hut, boxes, behind a wooden cat ramp (kind of like space behind a staircase). We are seeking a cat savvy, patient and loving home for Nash. The best thing for him would be to get adopted with another kitty he’s with (Potter, Lyra, Twix). You can pet him if he has no exit point (such as when he’s in the cube on the cat tower). Otherwise, he runs away.
