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?
Yeah, my photo looks like I’m a little rattled. That was truly the case when I was delivered to the cat rescue. Let me explain: A big, gruff and very annoyed man had hauled me into the rescue with a bunch of other kitties from my ‘hood. “This is getting out of hand!” he practically yelled. “I can’t do the whole neighborhood!” he sputtered. “Too many cats!” he yelped as he stomped out the door. But he wasn’t fooling any of us. Deep in that fuming thundercloud figure was a heart the size of a watermelon. If he hadn’t cared for us, we’d have ended up in a pillowcase meeting a very sad fate! He loved us all enough to make sure we would have at least a chance of a real home full of rooms to explore and cuddles and yummy food, be it wet or dry. There would be a soft padded kitty bed instead of a cardboard box, and a bowl with my name on it. That’s why I’m called Elsa now. I’m a queen of a kitty, and I just know you’ll be there catering to my every kitty need with worshipful adoration. I deserve the best, and I think that’s you!
Hey you? Yeah, you! What’s your name? My name is Dos. I know it means the number two. The lady that rescued me from her colony rescued two of us at the same time. So, she named us Uno and Dos. Better than one and two, I think. I am a special needs cat. I have tested positive for FIV. That means that I can only be with other cats that are FIV positive or cats that I get along with. FIV is feline aids. It can only be spread through a severe fight with an FIV positive cat where lots of blood is involved. It cannot be spread through saliva and I can’t pass it to humans or other animals. I am a healthy cat. I love to be petted and loved on. I am super friendly. I can be with dogs but I’m not sure if I get along with them. You see I have never been around them. I would love to find my forever home. This is my third chance. I belonged to a human, but I don’t know how we got separated. I found a colony here in pueblo where the lady who runs it realized that I was not feral or wild. She took me to the rescue so I can find a forever home. Will you help me make that happen? I think I deserve my third chance, don’t you?
A chalupa is a fried tortilla with a spicy filling, just like meow! Just check out my white leotard and hypnotic pelt of fur!? If that doesn't rank me as one of the spicy girls then I just can't imagine what does! I was orphaned as a tiny tyke and found in an industrial area with little hope of a future because of a difficulty seeing through my one hazy eye. Maybe you'll decide to take me home today? Just an idea but it sure seems like a great one cause I get along with everybody!
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!
They say I am a special needs kitty. But all I hear is the word ‘special’. Yes, I am special, very much so. My name is Cleo. Look how drop-dead, gorgeously beautiful I am. My emerald eyes. My thick, luxurious pelt of soft grey fur. It’s called Russian Blue so there has to be an aristocat in my background somewhere, don’t you think? It may say Russian but I’m a Pueblo kitty. I was found when I was a wee babe, stuck between a fence and a shed in March of 2012. OWWW! That’s what happened to make me a wobbly kitty. I have to admit I do have neurological issues because of that. I am good with other cats, but I’m a lover, not a fighter. I do well with those feline friends as long as they are as mellow as I am. Truth be told, I’m quite shy. But you know what they say about those who are shy. Take the time to get to know them and they are far more interesting than those other silly in-your-face critters. I’ve been at the rescue longer than anybody else. It’s been a grand home, but I’d really like to have my own person, my own home, my own address. One befitting a royal kitty like myself. If you think I’d fit into your lovely little home, be a sweet companion, and not require a ton of care, I’m your girl. If you’ve never had a Russian Blue, maybe now is the time to take one into your heart. I’m ready. Are you?
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.
It was a freak blizzard in the first week of October that caught me as a brand-new kitten out in the worst of the elements. When a volunteer found me huddled in an abandoned car in a storage yard, I was already nearly frozen. My pulse and respiration were almost non-existent due to the intense cold. I was brought into the rescue still in the process of defrosting and they weren't sure if I had a chance of survival... but survive I did! And so, they named me Chance! Now because of pure luck in combination with the kindness of cat lovers I am alive and fully recovered despite my rough start in life. The rescue got me all my vaccines, spayed and micro chipped so I’m ready for one of these forever homes I keep hearing so much about. They sure sound nice! They tell me a pretty little Calico-Tortie mix like me will find one in no time… It’s a cold world and I don’t ever wanna be left out in it again. Won’t you give me a chance to be YOUR Chance!?
Hi, I’m just a little squirt, so they called me Itsy Bitsy. I was born in April, 2018, and I’m a Poly-dactyl cat. That makes me quite unique. Let me share some facts with you about that. It’s a genetic trait that means a kitty like me can have more than the standard number of toes on their feet! When cats rode on ships, the ones with multiple toes were held to be good luck, maybe because they could mouse so well and hang onto those ropes and slippery boards better. And polys are also nicknamed “Hemingway Cats” because he liked them so much and had a number of them.
Here’s what you need to know about this little miss: I love to play in the cat tree and boxes! And I’m okay with either quiet or noise so that makes me pretty adaptable. I like to cuddle with other kittens and sitting in a windowsill is the cat’s pajamas! I hope you will have a nice sunny one available for me when you take me home. You ARE taking me home, right? Meow, meow!
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 special needs is that I recently broke my leg after playing kitty parkour. It is healing very well but I am not 100% better.
Alonzo came to us with his 2 siblings from Texas. Unfortunately, his owner passed away. Her relatives, who lived in Colorado, had tried everyone they could think of to find a new place for them. Each place they spoke with suggested euthanasia. AWR said we would take them all in and arranged transport from Texas. After receiving vet care and some time to decompress, Alonzo is doing well.
Alonzo is a quiet male cat who lived with his brother and sister. We do not know if he is good with dogs. He does do well with other respectful cats. This gentleman is on the larger side but that means he has more love to give.
Timothy came to us with his 2 siblings from Texas. Unfortunately, his owner passed away. Her relatives, who lived in Colorado, had tried everyone they could think of to find a new place for them. Each place they spoke with suggested euthanasia. AWR said we would take them all in and arranged transport from Texas. After getting them from Texas, Timothy and his siblings needed treatment for Upper Respiratory infections after being in a boarding facility. All three of them are doing well after settling in.
Timothy is a shy male cat who lived with his brother and sister. We do not know if he is good with dogs. He does do well with other respectful cats. He enjoys getting rubs and treats. After such a hard road, Timothy would love a new home. He enjoys lounging around and giving head boops when you are petting him. Recently, tumor was discovered on his stomach. It may be a fatty tumor or something more. He is an elderly cat and would love a relaxing home to spend the rest of his days in. He is very calm but still enjoys a lap and some love from his people.
He’s an energetic 1 yr old kitty. Duke loves to explore & climb!! His favorite toy is a 3 ring ball tower. He gives the best kisses & will sit in your lap after he plays hard. He very much enjoys talking to his family. Duke is an all around wonderful cat. His one special need is that he is FeLV positive. What that means is he can live with other cats that also have FeLV or other breeds of animals. FeLV can be spread through saliva or other close and continuous contact with cats. It is not contagious to other breeds of animals or humans. He does not take any medication for this either. Since it is contagious to other cats, he is considered special needs. He does have a sensitivity to lysine powder. If you are using that for him, allow it to sit in wet food for about 10 minutes and he is fine. Even though he is a special needs cat, he is still very normal and easy to care for. He is a lover and would do well with other animals that are the same temperament. Please consider giving Duke a chance. You won't regret it!
