Meet our Cats


Bear 2
Bear and his sister Christie are 14-week-old spitfires. Rambunctious, playful and curious they will, however, fall asleep in your arms when tired. Bonded since their rescue as newborns, they would love to be adopted together.

tortie kitten for adoption in salem
Iris is an affectionate, playful kitten, about 14 weeks old. With pretty tortie coloring, she is eager to meet humans and does not shy away from engaging in interactive play. She would love an active household but should not be overstimulated (or she'll look for creative ways to entertain herself when left to her own activities!)


RoxieRoxie is a 7-year-old sweetheart with a rust-and-black tortoiseshell coat. Roxie developed poor litterbox habits when she lived with a family with children, a dog, and other cats. We believe that she really didn't like her cat litter, and there were also some territorial issues. She has been in foster for about 6 months and once her foster mom discovered Precious Cat clumping litter, Roxie began to pee in her box - every time! She continues to be a well disciplined kitty, even when there was a potential territorial issue with the male cat in the household. PALS believes this issue is resolved, but we are totally open to a return if an adopter observes anything suspicious.

Roxie is super affectionate once she gets to know you, rubbing up against your legs, purring and headbutting your hands and legs. She has really nice thick, soft fur. She also has velvety black feet with "thumbs" - her fifth front toe sticks out and looks like a thumb. She loves to play with wand toys like the cat charmer. When she is really comfortable she lies on her belly with her front legs out and crosses her paws in front of her. She likes to hop up on the bed or couch next to her human, but she does startle if you move quickly. She is likely to become a lap cat with the right person. She also likes to rub the side of her gums/cheeks on you and will nip affectionately, which you will have to discourage by ignoring her briefly. Roxie would do great in a one-person home or with a couple. She would like a peaceful home, with only one or two people and no other pets, but she still wants to play with you a couple times a day.

Roxie would need to continue to get Precious Cat litter in her box - or, if not available, a medium-grain, scoopable clay litter. She likes a clean box and she also likes fresh clean water or a water fountain. Roxie is a lovable, affectionate, soft and beautiful girl and we're just looking for the right match to take her home.

Nana Gumbo

NanaNana Gumbo, a quiet, mellow and affectionate 9 year old, has a sweet temperament. She does, however, live to lounge, and is quite happy sleeping in a sunny spot, or at the foot of your bed. Nana is looking for a home with peaceful surroundings but can adapt to a more lively environment once she feels secure. If you have the patience to introduce Nana to your home slowly, showing her kindness until she builds trust, she will be a loving companion. Nana is a girl who simply doesn't want to be rushed.
