She is undergoing treatment for it now, and hopefully it will clear it up. She may need to be on sensitive stomach food for her entire life. Other than her health problems Kiki is so playful and so loving. She does good with cats and dogs and is looking for her new home.

    Vinnie is an active cat that was adopted from Animal Lifeline in 2004 as a one year old cat and recently returned when he was not adjusting to new pets that were brought into his home. When he returned he tested positive for FIV but is a very healthy cat that is not showing any signs of the disease, so we assume he is a just a carrier of FIV. He doesn't show any signs of slowing down and loves to watch the birds outside the window and gets excited when he sees the occasionally squirrel! He is an awesome cat that still has lots of love to give.

    Betty is our friendly resident lady who proves that life's little hangups don't have to stop us.

    Stewart is one of our heart-melters for sure! He loves everyone, likes to be in the midst of all the commotion getting his attention and love. He is great with other cats, all humans, and overcoming obstacles. His jaw was broken and abscessed when he came to us originally, but he does just fine now. He will need soft food and is a bit messy when he eats, but who doesn't drop a bit here and there?

Siamese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, FIV 

    Regina was found as a stray in southern Iowa and when she tested positive for FIV, that shelter contacted Animal Lifeline and we had room! She can be a little shy and she does not like to be picked up but she loves to be petted. She does prefer 'her own space' so a home without young children would be best. Because she is FIV positive, she will need a home with no other cats or where the other cats are FIV positive and not in 'her face'. Healthy and content best describes this special lady that was born in 2008.

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Melina was born in 2006 and was rescued in the country where she was lucky to find someone who cared for her. When they had to move, they were concerned about Melina and contacted us. Upon arrival it was discovered that Melina has a heart murmur and was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. We have started her on medication and special food to help with the thyroid condition. Her heart murmur will require monitoring the rest of her life. She likes to purr and has the longest whiskers we have seen!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Iowa
    Cats can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.

    Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!
