    Kally was originally adopted from Animal Lifeline as a kitten and recently returned when her guardian passed away. She is a little shy but once she gets to know you she loves to be brushed and likes to have her 'butt' scratched. She would prefer a home with no other cats or dogs and a home that is quiet and has a nice picture window for her to watch the world go by. Kally was born in March of 2005 and is currently on a diet to shed her 'winter weight'.

    My name is Jude, and I am an athletic boy! I love to run, explore, jump, see the sights, capture anything rolling, running or floating away from me, and will hunt something down if nothing else is going by. I do love attention; it's just my nature to want to go. I like people, like to play with other cats, dogs don't make me go nuts, but don't let them attack me either please. I find it interesting to see what people do when I tell them I want down to go and see what's going on.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Bryleigh, and I am a survivor. The people here think I was hit by a car, and it affected my breathing, so I sound a bit funny and my tongue sticks out. Don't let that keep you from seeing me, I am a sweet girl who loves to talk to people. I will snuggle into you, but there are also times a girl has to see what is going on around her, so I will get down to see what I can see. I do well with other cats, but I don't like the ones who give me an attitude. Let's be honest, who likes that in their face? I will call you over if I have to, and you will chuckle when you hear me call, I do sound funny. But my love is real and I would love ... (Read More)to show you how real it is. (Less)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Ryan and I am looking for my perfect family. I enjoy getting my head rubbed gently, possibly my back too if I know you. I love to hold conversations with people I know, letting them know all the things I want in life, like attention, conversation and quality time. I like to be around my friends here in this building, they let me rub and snuggle with them, and I also get more attention from the humans when I am around them. I don't see what the big deal is with all the smaller cats who get more attention than me, or the small yappy dogs either. Who needs them?

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!

lnteresting Cat Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All domestic cats are descended from African wild cats. Cats were incredibly popular in ancient Rome; Rome may have been spared from plague outbreaks due to its huge population of feral cats keeping the rat population under control. Today, Rome has the largest number of feral cats of any city in the worldabout 300,000 felines! The largest domestic cat ever weighed was about 46 pounds!
