Animal ID: 14c129Callie (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

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

    Young Callie, along with her companions Samantha and Tommy, recently lost their home when their elder friend entered a nursing home. She is adjusting to shelter life in a somewhat bold fashion, wanting to carve our her niche among all the previous residents of the cat room, and her boldness and sassiness sometimes results in a mild spat with other cats. But she soon finds her happy place, and all is well with the world again. Can't really blame her for being out of sorts - she had a loving home, and suddenly finds herself living in a cage. Callie, a black and white tuxedo, does love any attention she gets from her new human companions - she ... (Read More)is clearly missing the love and attention she received from her former companion. Callie should be fine living in a home with a dog, as she also had a large dog for a companion in her former home. Callie is box-trained, spayed, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50 (cash or check only, please). For more information on Callie, or an adoption application, email greenpoint@cox.net, call the shelter at (401) 647-7200, or visit during regular shelter hours. (Less)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucy is our special needs cat. She was an outside cat, and was hit by a car. Her right rear pelvis was broken in 3 places. She is now able to stand, walk and run very well. Unfortunately, the leg healed in such a way that she walks on the top of the paw, instead of normally, but it doesn't seem to slow her down. Lucy has never scratched, bitten or even hissed at anyone. She has healed fully, and has learned to get around very well. She is shy at first, but is a sweet playful girl. Lucy is looking for a loving home, where someone is willing to help her grow to be a loving companion.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-09-00402Kitten (male)

Bengal Mix    Age: Kitten

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This cat has been with us for about a month now, and has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested for feline AIDS and leukemia (both negative). He is great with the litter box, is hypoallergenic (I am extremely allergic to most cats, but no reaction with this little guy). He has a super sweet purr, a gorgeous, silky coat, and hardly sheds at all. He is great with our older Labrador retriever, and while he does try to entice her in play, is still generally respectful of her space and size. He is incredibly playful, SO funny, has lots of energy, but also spends a large part of the day lounging as well. He enjoys company, and follows the ... (Read More)family and dog from room to room, but enjoys affection more on his own terms. Harvey would probably do well in a home with other playmates, but children or younger, more energetic dogs would not be a good match due to his sensitivities and play style (see below). Important: This cat MUST go to a person or family with experience with or an understanding of the Bengal breed, as he exhibits some typical Bengal behavior. He will use his teeth when playing, although we do not encourage this. He does not bite hard enough to break skin and never uses his claws when playing with people. We feel that this is a little more excessive than typical kitten behavior, and that it is likely a reaction to his recent change in lifestyle when we brought him in. Prior to us bringing him in, he did not exhibit this behavior at all. At that point, he was an active, playful outdoor cat that was happy to sit on our laps, purr, and knead our clothes. We first noticed him roaming around in our neighborhood in June, intact, and very hungry all the time. After feeding him for the summer months, and unable to find that anyone was looking for him, we brought him in. Physically, he looks much healthier and has grown quite a bit, but unfortunately, he has not been adapting well to our tiny apartment after having been an outdoor cat. Due to his activity level and intense play style, we think he is feeling a little frustrated and cooped-up in our home. He would benefit from living in a larger space, with other furry playmates, and some safe outdoor access. This is a lovely, sweet, handsome, and entertaining kitty who needs, needs, NEEDS plenty of stimulation and exercise. We are going to miss this little guy, but we know that he will be so much happier under different circumstances! (Less)

Animal ID: 14C052 Simba (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Simba was initially thought to be feral during his wait to see the shelter vet, but it turns out he was just a big, shy baby who was a little afraid of his new surroundings. Since moving to the adoptable cat room, he has been enjoying the attentions of all the lady volunteers who cuddle him, and melt over his baleful eyes. He is still a little reticent about his fellow shelter critters, but with a little time, we expect his shyness to disappear. Simba is box-trained, neutered, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50. For more information on Simba, email greenpoint@cox.net, ... (Read More)call the shelter at (401) 627-7200, or visit during regular shelter hours. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Rhode Island
    Cats can make good pets in Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All domestic cats are descended from African wild cats. Cats were considered divine in ancient Egypt and are depicted in hieroglyphs and found mummified in the tombs of Pharaohs. 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!
