Mario is a very friendly and handsome six-year-old Seal Point Snowshoe Siamese. He was abandoned at the top of See Canyon five years ago He had been left behind when his owners moved. A neighbor took it upon himself to give Mario food and water, although he did not want Mario to become attached to him and avoided petting him. Mario would follow him when he would walk with his dog, though, and very much wanted attention and affection. When the neighbor moved away, Mario was left with no one to feed him, and the Feline Network, a cat rescue/spay and neuter organization, took him in. Mario has adapted to his temporary life in a garage enclosure but is yearning for a home of his own. This loving, beautiful boy is looking for a kind and loving home that will give him the affection and care he so richly deserves. If you would like to learn more about Mario, please call Christine at 544-6138.
Toby is a short-haired female spayed tabby cat. She has had a rough life. Rescued from Animal Services two years ago with her litter of five kittens, she was a very young mom. She was such a sweet mommy cat, and although a little cautious at times with new humans, she was very affectionate and loved to be included in petting sessions. She was adopted with one of her female kittens into a quiet home, kept indoors only, and over time, she started becoming aggressive toward her kitten and demanded to go outdoors. Against the owner’s belief to allow her outdoors, she slowly started letting her out. Over time, Toby started becoming OUTDOORS ONLY because she was so nasty to her now teenage kitten. Allowing Toby inside became intolerable for that reason. Toby has perfect litter box habits. She wants to come indoors. It is really sad to know that she is living like a street cat, only fed when she cries at the back door. Food has to be picked up due to wildlife. She is hungry and very lonely. She defends her “turf” on a nightly basis. This is not the life she deserves. Toby has been outdoors for over a year now, begging to come in and getting beat up by neighbor cats. She is really in a bad place. She desperately needs a safe home. A home that understands her. A home that will give her the space, time and love she needs to begin to trust again. She would probably be great as an indoor cat with some outdoor time–as long as her outdoor time is in a safe area. PLEASE NO COYOTE FOOD. This cat deserves a forever home. Her foster mom is heartbroken that this cat has been tossed away. She will have her up to date on vaccines, feline tested (again due to being outdoors), and she will be house-cat ready. Toby would be best suited in a home that understands cats, no small children and no other pets. Adoption fee will be waived. Please call if you have it in your heart to give this young lady a real life. 610-306-1662
Abigail (female), left, and Pumpkin (male), right, are 6 month old siblings and are two of the nicest cats we’ve had in our ten years of fostering for the Feline Network. They are sweet, playful, loving, and funny to watch. Neither are high energy kitties and are content being indoor only. They quite honestly have no bad habits. They would do best in a quiet home that matches their calm personalities. Abigail and Pumpkin have luxurious coats of dense, soft fur. Abigail’s is longer while Pumpkin’s is shorter. You’ll want to pet them forever. Both have big beautiful tails. Abigail is a special needs kitten in that she has the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). FIV typically causes a weakening of the cat’s immune system so they are more prone to getting infections such as upper respiratory infection or dental disease. Other than that, FIV-positive cats tend to live fairly normal lives, and although their lifespan is unpredictable, some cats even live out a normal life span. The FIV virus is not easily transmitted and is mainly spread to other cats through a deep bite wound. Hence, cats that are compatible with one another can live together without fear of spreading the disease. That is why we chose not to separate Abigail and Pumpkin. Casual contact such as sharing food bowls or snuggling is unlikely to cause transmission of the disease. FIV is specific to cats and cannot be transmitted to humans or dogs. Abigail and Pumpkin must be kept indoors and should be the only cats in the household. Please contact Christine at 805-544-6138 if you are interested in adopting Abigail and Pumpkin.
Sweetie is a gentle, indoor kitty who suffered brain damage while being spayed. She has lived with her senior owner for two years, but now the owner is in a senior care facility and cannot take care of Sweetie. Please think about giving Sweetie a permanent indoor home. She is gentle and walks with a pronounced limp. Her back legs sometimes buckle underneath her. She does not run and has limited climbing ability. She would be a great indoor pet for anyone who wants a calm, loving and pet-able cat. Please call Tom at Hay Printing at 805-772-3947 if you would like to give Sweetie a loving home.
