    I've had Bugaboo for 6 years now. He's very affectionate and loves to be held and petted. However I have two more pets. We're on a fixed income and I cannot afford to take him to the vet to be fixed. I've tried contacting several agencies to help me but have had no success. Bugaboo has not been fixed and tends to 'do his business' all over the house instead of the litter box. I've been told this is due to him not being fixed. I love him dearly, and it hurts me to post this. However, not being able to have the money for his proper care, I feel, in that respect I'm neglecting him. He has always been an indoors cat. I have never let him ... (Read More)outside as we live close to a road. He's very affectionate. Just needs someone to be able to take care of his vet needs. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Leukemia (FeLV) 

    14c139/Chuck's Story... This boy was found as a stray. He was taken to a shelter, given the name '14c139' and put on death row because of his FeLV status (see more on that below). Luckily, he was pulled from the shelter and is now in a foster home. This magnificent boy deserves a proper name, a permanent home, and people that will love him. The first thing we noticed about Chuck (14c139 didn't roll off the tongue) is that he is drop-dead gorgeous. He's a cream tabby with beautiful golden eyes and an adorable little orange nose. The second thing we noticed is that he is a friendly, mellow guy who loves people. He stepped out the cat carrier ... (Read More)and immediately asked politely for pets - no hiding under the bed for 5 hours, no hissing or swatting - he just settled right into the family. He's good with cats - he even tolerates our siamese drama queen. He's respectful and friendly towards our dog. This is a wonderful cat who would fit into most households. He's 7 years old, and still playful, but has outgrown the kitten craziness. If you're looking for a mellow companion, this is your boy. Chuck tested positive for Feline Leukemia, but is currently perfectly healthy. FeLV is a virus that attacks the immune system. It is very contagious to other cats, but not to humans or dogs. He needs to be an only cat, or live with other FeLV cats. Cats with FeLV may not start to show signs of the disease for months or years after they are infected, and during that time they can live happy, healthy, lives.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 

    This kitty was left at my porch, I tracked down her owner because I could tell she wasn't an outdoor cat but they didn't want her back. I have been trying to find someone I know to take her for months. I was asked by a relative to hold onto her until they moved...but now that they did they want a 'kitten' rather than a 1 year old 'cat'. I am not sure if she is spayed (I don't think she is) I can't afford to get her to a vet because I just drained my account on an older dogs vet bills. I am requiring vet references as a MUST!! I will also require she go to the vet to get her shots and to be spayed IMMEDIATELY. I get so many cats dropped of on ... (Read More)my porch it's not even funny. People know I wont leave an animal in the cold or go without food which is why they leave them there. There are enough kitties in the world we don't need any more!! I am asking a small adoption fee to ensure she wont be used for bait or just be left outside. SHE HATES BEING OUTSIDE SHE IS AN INDOOR CAT ONLY!!!! She is healthy and very cuddly and happy. I have kids that she lets carry her around and I have dogs and other cats as well. (Less)

    Lucy is a very sweet short haired cat. She is 3 1/2 years old. We need to find a new home for Lucy. She has begun to pee where she shouldn't. We have ruled out all medical causes for this.

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

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

    Marmalady is about 11 years old. We adopted her about 9 years ago from a shelter in Western MA. We have been trying to find her a home now for about 6 months and we may need to resort to sending her to a shelter soon if she is not adopted soon. She likes to cuddle and sleeps most of the day. She is not super energetic but definitely likes to be around people. She has been living with 2 other cats at my home for the past 6 years and they have gotten along great with them. After one of the other 2 cats passed away, Marmalady and our other cat can no longer get along. We tried having her go to a friends house to see if she just needed to ... (Read More)be separated from our other cat and she was very happy there and thrived there (our friend even had a dog). With our daughter and another baby on the way, we can no longer keep both of the cats as the fighting is disrupting our home. We do not have the ability or space unfortunately to separate them in the house. She has been great with my daughter, who is now 28 months. I really, really want to find her a loving home...it breaks my heart that we have to let her go. I am more than willing to provide food and litter for the first year or so as long as she goes to a family who will keep her safe and love her! She is a beautiful orange cat and is quite small, around 7 pounds. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Asha is a very independent 13 year old black kitty that doesn't climb on things, doesn't jump up on the tables and spends alot of her time under the bed. With most new people, it takes her awhile to feel comfortable and come out of hiding. But once she know you, she will come out right away. Asha Loves to be pet on her head and under her chin using both hands but she doesn't like it when people are assertive with her. She'll let you know when she wants to be pet, and she'll walk away when she's done. She doesn't really like being picked up but she likes sleeping at the foot of the bed. When she's REALLY in a cuddly mood she'll ... (Read More)climb onto your belly (like when you first wake up) and make herself comfortable. She loves playing with those little mice that have catnip in them. She comes when she's called. She doesn't like a dirty litter box, and she's petrified of plastic bags (that crinkly sound).

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Massachusetts
    Cats can make good pets in Massachusetts 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!
