Meet the Girls!

Allie is a pretty, petite little girl with
a nice disposition who we believe is 6-7 years old. She's so cute in her
gray tuxedo, with 4 white paws and white ring at the tip of her tail. Allie's
foster mom reports that she really enjoys being petted and will let you
pick her up. She was probably used to being an only cat before she came
to AAP, but has adapted well to the other felines in her foster home. Allie
comes when called and she is sociable around people. In addition, she is
fastidious about using the litterbox.
Bonnie has developed into
a beautiful cat! She loves to play and explore her foster home with her
other foster family cats. When she is ready for some human loving, she
will seek you out for some attention! She will purr immediately upon
being picked up and cuddle right into your neck. When it’s time for a
rest, she loves to sit on your lap, especially if there is a blanket
involved. And, if you don’t have one, Bonnie will come with her own
“special” blanket. She has a favorite blanket that she loves to knead
and suck on. This magic blanket makes her instantly relax, she starts to
purr, and she is in cat-heaven!
Hello my name is Flora. I am a little
gray tabby girl with 4 cute white paws. A very nice woman took my
Mom into her home right before I was born. My siblings and I were so
lucky to have someone take care of us, and keep us all healthy right
from the start! I may seem little but I have a big heart. My most
recent foster family noticed that I really enjoy being pet, and just
adore playing with a string. I am on the quiet side, but I am
interested in the world around. I am ok with other cats, especially
my “foster kitten brother” (who I have come to love), small kids and
grown-ups too. And, I really like to be cuddled and cradled by my
humans! My foster Mom said “I am easygoing and lovely!”
I’m Holly! I am a gorgeous, sweet 2-year-old female. I am looking
for human companions who will share MY home with me – are you my
person? I am pretty independent. While I love to be petted, I’d
rather you not pick me up – but I will happily hang with you for
hours. I love playing too, and if you have a Cat Dancer I will be
your best friend. Or give me a nice box to jump into and I am a
happy gal. I like the young girls that visit my foster parents. I’m
a little shy at first around other pets, but I’ve gotten comfortable
with them at my foster home. I would like to play with the cats if
they would let me, but I hiss at the dogs so they stay away. I don’t
mind if they’re nearby though.
Little Cutie Pie Lina! Doesn't she have
the sweetest little face?! Miss Lina is a typical young cat who
enjoys playing and romping with her brother and her foster mom's
cats but she does tend to be a bit cautious. She is a little shy at
first meeting but once she knows you, she has no problem being
cuddled in your arms. She will also follow you around the house to
see what you're doing. In addition, she is used to a dog and
although she doesn't try to play with him, they live together
Luna is a sweet, mellow, mild-mannered
tuxedo gal who is approx. 2 years old. She is very small in stature and
was initially mistaken for a large kitten due to her small frame. She
loves to play with her ball racetrack toy, lounge in the sun and play
chase with her furry foster sister. She is affectionate and loves neck
and head scratches and will start purring the moment you pet her. She is
very dexterous and loves to use her paws to play with water or tap you
for extra pets and scratches.
Minnie Mouse (CG-C-9553)
Minnie (Minnie Mouse) is a petite black and
white kitten with an extra fluffy and soft coat. She got her name
because her coloring resembles that of Minnie Mouse, right down to the
cute black dot on the tip of her nose. She loves neck and head scratches
as well as being brushed. She is smart and knows where her "snackies"
are kept and will give your ankles head rubs until you cave in and she
gets one (or a few). She enjoys playing with her ball racetrack toy as
well as other toys (and objects she thinks are toys, such as hair
clips). She loves to follow you around wherever you go, and then plop
down in front of you and roll around. She also loves to supervise you
while you are catching up on work or are doing a home workout video,
just to make sure you are not slacking off. :) She gets along well with
her furry foster sister. They enjoy play-chasing each other, and giving
each other playful bops on the head, and would really enjoy the
companionship of another cat or friendly dog. When she was a single
foster, she was also still happy being "queen of the castle" so she
would adapt well to most any environment. Please check out our "Pick A
Pair" page to see if her foster sister is still available, or pick your
own pair, she would love that too.
My name is Misty, and I am a beautiful
black, female cat with gorgeous yellow/green eyes. It is believed that I
am around 5 years old. It was a cold, snowy day last March when two
wonderful people found me huddled in a snowbank by the side of the road.
I was hungry and very skinny, but they brought me into a warm house and
took good care of me. I am so happy now...all I want to do is sit in
your lap, have you pet me and let my loud purring show my gratitude. I
have so much love to give! I hope you could be my forever home.
Nellie is a beautiful cat who is very easy
going and independent. She is not a needy girl - just hangs around, does
her own thing, and occasionally plays with her toy mouse, and if you
have a laser light, that gets her going too! She absolutely LOVES
finding a sunny spot to stretch out and take a nap…that is the best!
Purry Polly got her name for a reason. She
loves to climb on your shoulder and sit overseeing your activities like
a parrot. She has a very gentle nature and is very affectionate.
Snuggling with her foster family is her favorite pastime. Polly’s even
temperament and overall sweet nature would make her an ideal pet for
anyone, even very young children.
Hi, I'm Sophie, a sweet gray-brown tabby with beautiful green eyes, just
2 years old. My sisters both got adopted but I am still waiting for my
furever home. I'm a bundle of energy who loves to play but when I'm
tired I will curl up next to you and fall fast asleep. It would be great
to be adopted to a home with another friendly boy cat (I prefer them
over girls) but I would also do ok as an only child as long as someone
is home alot to play with me. I absolutely LOVE to play!
Sydney is a gentle and playful kitten. She
is a social butterfly. She loves to be stroked and patted and takes any
attention you will give her. She is not clingy though, and will give you
your space. She can wander on her own and investigate all the nooks and
crannies of your home. Sydney has an enormous curiosity for water and
will dip her paws in her water bowl or drink from the sink. Licking
water from a tub right after you take a shower, is her favorite
Tina is a very lovable and playful kitten.
She loves to investigate and explore new environments. She shows her
lively, energetic and playful personality when she chases with her two
siblings around the house. Tine does love to be stroked and patted and
will reward you for your attention by purring loudly or even squealing
when you rub her tummy.
Are you looking for a silky, loving,
playful companion? Trinket is a true gem! She is a stunning 1-year-old
medium-haired calico. She came to Adopt-a-Pet very, very pregnant and
had her babies with us. Now that she is an empty-nester and has been
spayed, she is ready for a home of her own! She is very loving and
sweet. She likes being held in your arms like a baby and having her
chest rubbed. She can stay on the couch next to you for hours, and has
the cutest chirp instead of a meow. But she also loves to play! Try a
wand or Cat Dancer to see her jumping around and showing off her
athleticism. Or chase her around the house to see how fast she is! She
enjoys the young children that visit her foster home. She is not
skittish around loud noises like the vacuum or something falling, so she
would do well in an active household – or just hanging out with her
special person. And just look at that amazing tail! Beautiful, sweet and
playful, Trinket is a jewel of a cat!
Wiki can be a little shy and hesitant at
first, but in the two weeks she has been at her current foster home she
has started coming out of her shell. Her shy exterior is hiding a very
sweet purring interior. She can be timid around new people, but once she
gets to know you, and realizes that your squeaky shoes, or 6 foot frame
pose no actual danger, she does not mind being hugged, kissed, and
carried in your arms, especially if food is involved. ;-)!
What an absolutely beautiful Flame Point
Siamese Mix little girl! If you are ready to be loved, Winnie is the
girl for you! She is always ready to be picked up, and will stay in your
lap for as long as you let her. In fact, if you sit, she will jump on
your lap. And…she gives kisses too! But don’t think she is too big of a
mush, because when it’s playtime, she can be a tough girl who likes to
wrestle with her brothers.
