Ishmael was reluctantly surrendered by a couple who are traveling and know their cat would be happier in a home where people are there most of the time.
People for Cats provided the following. Ishy is one of a number of black cats currently at the shelter, but we quickly see that each of these cats has its own distinct personality. Like most black cats, Ishy has shiny fur that is soft to the touch. He is about 1 1/2 years old and loves to play. It is fun to watch him bat cat toys around in his suite for 15 minutes at a time. This friendly, happy boy takes his play seriously! Ishy would be a good choice for a family with children who would play with him, occupying both Ishy and themselves. His good nature is sure to win him a new home soon. Our shelter address is 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket. Adoption hours are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or by appointment…

Sweetie is looking for a forever home after her owner went into a nursing home.
By People for Cats Sweetie recently came to our shelter after her owner went into a nursing home. She is a declawed, white and gray cat whose personality matches her name. Sweetie is calm, friendly, and affectionate. She has lived indoors, both as an only cat and in the company of other cats, so we think she would be happy either in a quiet home or with a family with children past the preschool age. Sweetie has experienced big changes in her life recently so we are hoping this lovely middle-aged girl's stay in the shelter will be short. Having another loving family of her own is all Sweetie needs to be a contented cat once more. Adoption hours at our shelter are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or call our …

Toby, an eight-year-old Maine coon cat is looking for a home.
by People for Cats Meet Toby, a handsome eight year old Maine coon. He has the long hair typical of his breed and is a medium-sized gray/brown tabby with green eyes. Toby is a bit reserved at first meeting but quickly relaxes and becomes friendly as soon as he is comfortable with someone. He has lived with other cats but might prefer to be an only cat so he can have more personal attention. PFC recommends that all house cats be kept indoors, but this is especially important for Toby because he is declawed. Toby is an affectionate cat and will be a good companion for someone in a quiet household. Visit Toby at our shelter, located at 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket. Adoption hours are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m…

People for cats want to find a forever home for two Maine coon cats, Lilly and Jazzy.
By People for Cats This week we are featuring a pair of Maine coon girls, mom Lilly and daughter Jazzy. Maine coons are large, long-haired cats who typically have friendly, calm personalities. These girls are perfect examples of the breed. Lilly, a brown cat with white on her face and chest, is 9 years old and Jazzy, a mostly brown cat with a small amount of white on her chest, is 8. After having been rescued by a woman who heard they were going to be put down, these good tempered cats were brought to us. Eight to nine years old is only middle aged for cats; indoor cats often live to be 15 - 20 years and we hear frequently of cats that live into their twenties. Both Lilly and Jazzy are in good health, have been spayed, and are current with…

Chloe is a 3-year-old calm, confident cat, looking for a home.
- LOCAL CONNECTIONS
Sunday, November 4, 2012
by Sally Heimerdinger, People for Cats Our featured cat this week is Chloe, a 3 year old white cat with medium length fur. Chloe is a calm, confident girl who enjoys being with people and is used to living with other cats too. People for Cats recommends that all adopted cats be kept indoors because the lifespan of an indoor-outdoor cat is about half that of one who remains inside. For white cats, remaining inside is especially important because the pink areas of their skin, such as the tips of their ears and noses, are prone to sunburn which can lead to skin cancer. Chloe will be happy in a home where she can watch the outdoor world from a safe window. This beautiful, friendly girl would be a good addition for any type of family. Adoption …

Both cats are friendly and playful. They can be adopted either as a pair or separately. Argyll loves to sit in a window to watch the birds and squirrels.
