If ever there was a distinguished kitty who could carry the very distinguished name of Beauregard it would be me! I am almost three years old and I’ve been waiting on a new furever home of my own for such a long time! The rescue is super nice to me and always keeps me up to date on my vaccines as well as any other medical needs I have had. I’ve been here since I was just an itty-bitty baby with all my brothers. They’ve all gone on to furever homes of their own and now it’s my turn! I am loving and free spirited in the best way. I adore being held and look forward to the cuddles of my new human! I get along great with people and cats alike, I haven’t encountered any dogs or children in my three years so I’m not too sure how I feel about them. But just like any other adoption from the rescue we have two weeks to make sure I’m a purrfect fit for you and your family.
Take me home today and let’s find out!
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 beautiful girl is Gesso. She was found in Rocky Ford with her two young kittens in a hole in a tree. She was very malnourished and needed help. The family who found her was unable to keep them due to having their own animals. That night, there was a horrible storm. These cats needed help right away. AWR was able to help out and now Gesso is in need of a home. She is fully vetted and ready for her forever family. The name Gesso stems from a type of foundation for art or sculpting. This momma is the foundation for her kittens and she would love to add some beauty to your life.
Teeny was surrendered with her 5 babies in March. She was only 11 months old and already had her first litter. This young mom took care of her babies even while she was under extreme stress. Now that her babies have been adopted, this girl deserves a home too. Teeny enjoys napping on your lap and head scratches. She does well with other cats but isn’t fond of dogs. She would love to have a family that can help her decompress and learn what a loving home is. Teeny is spayed, micro chipped, and up to date on vaccinations.
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.
