Story
This is a ‘Courtesy Posting.’ To meet Stardust & Ziggy contact Marisol: 917.443.7013 or boyleheightscats@gmail.com Stardust is a beautiful 2 1/2 year old White/Black Turkish Van mix with a unique face that is 3/4 white and 1/4 black. Her body is white except for a large black stripe across her back and her black tail and soul patch on her chin. She has large light green eyes, lots of white whiskers and a black star on her nose. Stardust and her sister were rescued from a bad situation but that has not affected their great personalities. Stardust is a bit of a relaxed Diva who knows she can get by on her good looks! While her sister is off chasing toys, Stardust prefers to lounge around the house and passes her days napping in her Cat tree. You will find her sitting on the couch watching TV if you let her. Stardust does enjoy chasing after her Cat dancer toy, dragging it around the house, or laser dot if it's playtime and she will show affection if you offer treats or when it's time to eat. She might be shy at first meeting but warms up quickly once she feels comfortable. Stardust is good with other Cats. She will bring love and fun to a lucky family. She is bonded to her sister Ziggy and they need to be adopted as a pair.

Story
This is a ‘Courtesy Posting.’ To meet Sandy contact Martie: 714.343.2707 or martiel@aol.com Sandy is a one year old Calico Turkish Van mix’ with a mostly white body accented by a black/orange ‘zorro’ mask over her white face, a black/orange patch on her back, and a mostly black tail. She has soulful eyes, long white whiskers, and a pink nose. Sandy was found homeless on the street with an injured eye. Her Vet tried to save her eye but could not, and she lost the sight in that eye. However, that does not deter her from doing the normal ‘Cat activities’ and this does not slow her down. Sandy is good with children and babies and gets along very well with the Dogs in her foster home. She is still learning to trust people and is OK with being held for short periods of time. Sandy knows her name and comes when she’s called. She will follow her people around the house and enjoys being with them. Sandy is a talker with lots of stories to tell, especially when it’s close to meal time. She loves to play with unconventional playthings; her favorite toys are her foster’s fuzzy slippers that she will steal and hide, and empty toilet paper rolls. Sandy also plays with the laser pointer until she tires herself out. She is a sweet girl who will be so happy when her new family finds her. To meet Sandy contact Martie: 714.343.2707 or martiel@aol.com

Story
Mia is a delicious five year old Turkish Van mix Calico with an orange/black harlequin over her white face, and a mostly white body with a large patch of orange/black on her back. She has large light green eyes and a dark raccoon tail. Mia is a lovable, caring, and friendly Cat. She’s a good bed pal, loves to cuddle, and gets along well with other Cats, (she has lived with two other Cats her entire life.) Mia is even tempered and a total “love-bunny.” Her hobbies are lounging around the house, cat-naps and getting as many pets and rubs as possible! Mia loves people after she gets to know them, but it might take a minute for her to warm up, but once she does, she will win you over. She needs a new home because the person who temporarily took her in cannot keep her and wants to find her a home where she will be loved and live the good life that she deserves. Mia is FIV+ but shows no symptoms and does not need any treatments. To meet this sweetheart contact us: catconnection@sbcglobal.net Adoptions by appointment only.

Meet HELMET... named after Dark Lord Helmet in the comedy film, Spaceballs. If you're looking for personality, Helmet's your boy!! He will run to greet you at the door, perch on your shoulder or hop into your lap - whether you're situated or not. This boy has been raised in a busy foster home with young children and dogs. Basically, I think he thinks he's a dog. You'll find his complete rescue journey chronicled in Photo Album #32 on our Facebook page: "Save The Leadwell Kitties". There you'll find ALL of our rescued cats and kittens along with updates from their fosters and adopters! Helmet's adoption will include his: * Neuter surgery, * De-worming, * FVRCP vaccinations, * Rabies vaccination, * Combo-test (for FIV/FeLV = negative), * Flea and mite treatment (with Revolution), ~ $150. adoption fee, adoption contract and home check apply / $250 for a pair ~ * Please only contact us if you'll be making Anderson a permanent member of your household and will be keeping him safe indoors. ** We do not adopt out kittens or cats where they will be the only pet at home. Kittens rely on each other for emotional support and continued social and behavioral development. For example: another kitten or cat will teach them when they're playing too rough or biting too hard. Plus, cats and kittens get very lonely when you're not at home! Having a playmate will keep them happier, healthier and out of trouble. **We offer a discount when adopting a pair! Interested in becoming a much-needed foster? Please send us a message with your best contact info, the type of home environment you can provide and, most-importantly, the City in which you live. Thanks!

Story
Meet Figaro, part of a litter of 5 (all with Disney names) with a white body, black markings throughout... including adorable toe beans that look like he walked across an ink pad. He's got 3 round dots on his nose and a pink belly! Fig is, definitely, the most outgoing of his siblings... fearless, sweet, chatty, curious and LOVES having that pink belly rubbed. Basically, if you're looking for PERSONALITY, look no further. This boy's the ONE! And if his paw size is indicative, we suspect he's going to grow into a large, glorious feline! Looking for a bonded pair? He seems to hang out mostly with Ariel, the runt of the litter... but she holds her own when they're wrestling and rough-housing. This cutie gets along with all the other kitties and would have no trouble adjusting to your resident feline. You'll find his complete rescue journey chronicled in Photo Album #32 on our Facebook page: "Save The Leadwell Kitties". There you'll find ALL of our rescued cats and kittens along with updates from their fosters and adopters! Figaro's adoption will include his: * Neuter surgery, * De-worming, * FVRCP vaccinations, * Rabies vaccination (if old enough), * Combo-test (for FIV/FeLV = negative), * Flea and mite treatment (with Revolution), ~ $150. adoption fee, adoption contract and home check apply / $250 for a pair ~ * Please only contact us if you'll be making Fig a permanent member of your household and will be keeping him safe indoors. ** We do not adopt out kittens or cats where they will be the only pet at home.

Story
Meet Timon, part of a litter of 5 (all named after Disney characters) with a white body, black markings throughout, a pink nose and belly... including adorable toe beans that look like he walked across an ink pad (some are pink, some black)!! Timon is sweet, even-tempered, playful, energetic and is the most observant of his littermates... often preferring to hang out, upside down from his hammock, watching all the kitten mayhem around him. This boy loves to snuggle with his Mama, Churu treats and carrying around his mousie toy in his mouth. I suspect it's the Turkish Van in him that accounts for his interest in playing in the water bowl. Looking for a bonded pair? He gets along great with all his siblings and should have no trouble adjusting to your resident feline. You'll find Timon's complete rescue journey chronicled in Photo Album #32 on our Facebook page: "Save The Leadwell Kitties".
