Imagine being given away when you are a senior – abandoned after years of giving yourself to those whom you have grown to trust. Imagine being hit by a car, left in the middle of the road, until a kind Samaritan takes pity and brings you in to a vet for treatment. Can you imagine never knowing a home, a place where you are safe, and where you will be cherished, or being abandoned simply because you aren’t well?
All of these are lovable, adoptable cats, hoping for forever homes, recovering from being abandoned, having been given away or abused through no fault of their own. A reader commented on the cruelty of humans, to debase gentle creatures who are trapped in cycles of abuse and neglect. I couldn’t agree more! Here’s hoping that these furry friends find their forever homes, where they too can be cherished and know a loving touch.
BOO – domestic medium black and white female. “I’m Boo, a 4 year old girl with quite a story to tell you! It all started when I was rescued from the streets as a kitten. I was adopted into a home where I was so happy until just recently. My dad had to return me to the LVVHS from where I was originally adopted because he had to relocate to care for one of his parents who is really sick and allergic to me. It was a tearful goodbye as I left the only home I knew for all these years, but I have been reunited with my original foster mom who promised she’ll find me a forever home this time. She even showed me some baby photos- I was so cute!
I’m a great cat who already knows the household routine! I use my litterbox, scratching posts, and make a great addition to the family. I love to play with toy mice and dangly toys. I’ll even jump in the air to try and get them which is entertaining to watch. When it’s time for bed, you don’t have to tell me twice, I’ll follow you and find the perfect spot to get comfy for the night.
I’m spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Please contact the LVVHS at 434-2009 to meet me! Boo is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.”
SALLY: domestic medium hair black and white. ” Sally was born in August of ’07 and was originally rescued from the streets with her brother, Jack. They were adopted together, but then returned a year later when a family member developed allergies. Jack has since been adopted, but Sally remains in foster care.
Sally is a sweet, affectionate girl who loves attention and people. She is the life of the party and will entertain everyone with her playful outgoing nature. Sally likes to run around, chase toys, and participate in the household activities. When Sally is done being the entertainment, she wants to sit with you, listen to your day, and she’ll even meow about hers. Sally would be great with other cats or kittens to keep her company.
Sally is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. If you want to meet Sally, please contact the LVVHS at 434-2009. Sally is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.”
SPARKLE: domestic black short-hair female. ” Sparkle got her name for the sprinkling of white hairs she has on her chest. She is an active 2 yr old, and is very small for her age. Sparkle loves to play,,,and help you with your email… She is not a lap cat, but is very interactive and likes to be in the midst of activity. Sparkle likes kids, so would be a great family cat.
Sparkle is spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated. Please call the LVVHS at 434-2009 if you would like to meet her. Sparkle is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.”
SHADOW: domestic long-haired tortoiseshell SENIOR female: I have featured Shadow before. She is a particular favorite, so please indulge me and take her into your heart too. ” I overheard someone say, “Shadow isn’t adoptable because she’s too old.” After collecting the broken pieces of my shattered heart, I prepared my plea.
I’m Shadow, a petite, unassuming, gentle soul, who happens to be 12 years old. I’m really a nice girl, who doesn’t ask for much. A soft blanket or a pillow to rest on next to you is plenty for me. I do need to eat wet food, but I’m very appreciative of my meals. It’s not easy being abandoned at my age, but the LVVHS didn’t give up on me, and I’m not giving up on the chance of finding a family to love me one day. Shadow is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.”
BUFBUSTER: domestic male orange and white short-hair: “Hi, I’m Bufbuster, but you can call me Buster. I’m a 1 year old boy who was rescued from the streets when I was a kitten. A woman took me and my brother, Gris, into her home, but when it was discovered we had faint heart murmurs, she gave us away. That really hurt because no one ever told me you had to be perfect for someone to love you. In fact, the faint heart murmur may even disappear as I get older; kittens sometimes outgrow these things. In the meantime, I’m called “special needs,” which suits me because I really am special!
Anyway, I’m a sweet boy, although a bit shy around new people. I’m a playful high energy boy, and I’m definitely the leader when I’m around other cats and even dogs! In foster care, I’m learning to trust people, and I’m told there are special homes out there for those of us cats called “special needs.”
I’m neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped, so please contact the LVVHS at 434-2009 and ask to meet me! BufBuster is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.”
SAMMY: domestic short-haired male brown tabby. “Sammy is a sweet 6 yr old boy who was rescued from lying in the middle of the road after a driver struck him with their car and drove off. An LVVHS volunteer rushed Sammy to the vet’s office where he was treated for his injuries, including a broken pelvis. Sammy has since fully recovered from that painful experience, but he still suffers blindness in his left eye.
Amazingly, Sammy has maintained his gentle, trusting disposition, and he loves having his head and neck scratched. He also loves playing with his favorite toy mouse.
Sammy is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. If you want to meet Sammy, please contact the LVVHS at 434-2009. “
