Fenway is sweet, laid back, affectionate boy.  At 6 years young, he is content to gaze out the window or follow you around the house.  Fenway is a large boy who will benefit from a low calorie, high quality diet and moderate exercise.

Miss Mildred is a laid-back 9-year-old black and white female with a sweet blaze down her nose. Overweight when brought to PALS, she has been following a high-quality/low-calorie meal plan and getting in lots of cardio (although we admit she does bat around the wand with her front paws while lounging on her back!) Still, Mildred can be enticed by the laser pointer, and loves having a human at her side. She is not overly needy, and would make a good, low-maintenance companion for someone looking for a cat to snuggle with. She is quite tolerable of other cats, but does not have much interest in interacting with them, which leads us to believe she wants to be your top priority.

Handsome Sox is an 11 year old male.  Recently surrendered, he is unsure of his new surroundings.  He was being bullied by his brother for the past year, and his owners felt that the boys needed to be separated.  Being the subnmissive feline, they felt he would be more likely to be adopted.  Sox enjoys being petted once he gets to know you and is very fond of catnip.  He is a gentle soul looking for a new place to call home.  We believe Sox would be more comfortable as an only cat, given his history.

Special Needs Cats

Special Needs

Every so often we take in an adoptable cats with special needs. Maybe there's a pet too energetic for the average household or an FIV+ cat that needs to be placed in a home with either no other cats or another FIV+ cat. These pets might ask of their companions more care or time or energy or resources; in return, they will offer more love, gratitude and satisfaction to their dedicated guardians than the average rescued animal might provide.

Here are some of the current special needs cats currently waiting in foster care for the right forever home. If interested in one of these cats, please contact:

(Xander) Bogart is a 12 year old loving, curious, be-your-best-friend male tuxedo. He gives head butts, sits on your work, kisses your ears and does not mind being held. Although he is eager to be by your side, he is well-mannered and can be content just watching you do your thing. Bogart wants to be your only kitty and would do great in any type of environment - a busy home with older kids, a small apartment with a senior. He may get a little lonely if left for long periods of time (i.e. 8+ hours) as he craves human interaction.

Bogie recently had some issues with blood pressure and potassium which now require medication twice daily. He takes his medication like a champ in his foster home. Additionally, he requires a combination of prescription and over the counter diet. His foster mom also notes that he may have some minor vision loss. None of these details keep him from being a loving feline companion.
