My name is Sam! I am a male domestic short-haired cat that is black and white! I am neutered and am current on all my shots! I came to AWR Cat Tails Rescue with my siblings, Little Black Girl, Patches, and Scarecrow. Our mother was a feral cat that knew she needed help taking care of us. One cold and wet winter day back in 2011 our mom went to find some caring people to help us. She found our human mom, led her to a soggy cardboard box where we were all hiding under. We were so tiny, cold, and wet that our mom let the nice lady pick us up. After this day our mom was never seen again. We were very sick and had diarrhea and were very malnourished. Our human mom can no longer take care of us because she has terminal brain cancer and doesn’t have much more time to live. She made sure that we would be taken care of for the rest of our lives, so a good friend of hers brought us to the rescue! My human mom wanted to ensure that we would continue to be taken care of! I have spent my whole life being surrounded by my siblings, so I think it would be really cool if I could continue to spend my life with at least one of them! I am ready to find my new family that is going to be able to give me my furever home!
I’m a kind and loving sort of regal, all I really need is a royal throne in a castle of my own.
No one is sure how long I fought to survive on the streets but when I was found I was in the "family way". I knew I had to do something quick! So, I did the smart thing and approached a nice lady for help. She took me in and cared for me until I had my babies. Once my babies arrived, she brought us to a rescue where they took me to a kitty doctor who told them I was positive for Feline Leukemia that I must’ve picked it up as a stray. I don’t need special medicine or anything though. They say as long as I’m an indoor kitty with a healthy diet I’ll never experience any trouble. It does mean that I can’t ever be in a home with cats that are negative for FeLv though. But I’d be fine with any humans or dogs or even other positive cats. I wouldn’t mind being the only kitty in your life though… everyone says how beautiful and sweet I am, I know I would be a wonderful companion.
Won’t you take me to your castle?
This older gal was dumped at our door with a note and some medicine. Poor Gracie was left outside in 90+ degree weather until we returned from errands. Gracie does have hyperthyroid and was not eating. After a vet visit which showed that her thyroid levels were extremely high, we have a follow up in a few weeks to retest. Someone kept this girl for 11 years but didn't have the heart to surrender her safely or provide us with any info that could be lifesaving for her. Gracie does eat a special type of food made for her hyperthyroid disease. She is a very loving girl and gives amazing hugs. She has a little quirk, she likes to rub her teeth against humans when she is seeking attention. She doesn’t bite, just touches you with her teeth. Despite her health issues, she is still a normal cat looking for love and a good home. She prefers a lap but likes to sleep on any padded chair. She is also a purring machine. She has the most adorable meow that sounds like a raspy Grandma. This 11 year old girl would make a great companion.
Roderick came to us with his sister, Ingrid, after being found on the side of a highway in Colorado. They were cared for by a nice lady for 5 days but kittens who need to be bottle fed can be a lot of work. They needed veterinary care and around the clock feedings. Even with 24-hour care, Ingrid didn’t make it. Roderick has had a tough start in life but would love nothing more than to have a good home to make the rest of his life more enjoyable. He is a sweet kitten that loves to do kitten things!
