I’m a calico kitten named Nina who has 2 gears.  I’m either busy investigating everything, or I’m sound asleep (and hogging the remote so that no one changes my channel).   Usually though I am playing, playing, playing!  I play with my foster sisters, with the dog, with the old cat (who works real hard to avoid me), with my foster mom, and with toys.  I have a real zest for life and am always making my foster mom laugh.  If you love being entertained by a funny, playful, loveable kitten, consider making me a part of your family.  (*)

I’m a calico kitten named Pinta who is not very demanding.  I’m content playing with my sisters and other foster family members, but the thing I really love is to sleep.  I can take a nap anywhere – in my hammock, on the couch, in a basket, under the bed, behind the chair – in fact, my foster mom just shook her head when she found me asleep in a potted plant last week.  I would love to find my favorite cozy corners to nap in my forever house . . . . . maybe yours?  (*)








Santa Maria

DOB: August 3, 2014



I’m a calico kitten named Maria who has very interesting markings and a sweet loving personality.  I’m a very laid back kitten who loves to play, investigate, and adores taking naps on the couch with my foster mom and sisters.  I love people, and am used to cats, kittens and a couple of very yappy terriers who also live here.  I know that I would be a welcome addition to your family.

I'm a precious five month old little boy. I like to run, play, and climb; but ultimately if you give me a nice soft blanket to lay on ill purr myself to sleep. I love to be held and I will melt in your arms if you let me. (*)









DOB: May 2014



Like my brother Oliver I too love to run and play. I like to sleep on the blankets too. While I don't like to be picked up as much as my brother I'll jump in your lap and fall right to sleep.  (*)










DOB: July 2014



I'm a precious little boy who would love to melt your heart. Some might say I'm "special" because I was born with only three full legs. But I don't let it get me down. I run and play with my fosters just like any other kitten.  (*)

My name is Mitzi and I am 3 months old, I was brought to a local shelter as a stray and as you all know our local shelters have more than their share of stray healthy kittens.  The staff at the shelter felt that the healthy kittens might be tough competition for me when it comes to getting adopted, you see I was born with no eyes.  They said I was what they call special needs.  What I really think I am is just "special". They asked Pet Refuge if they might have just a little extra space for a kitten that needed extra help finding its' forever home. The folks at Pet Refuge were happy to help.

I may not be able to see the sun but I can feel it's warmth, I am not be able to see my food bowl but I can smell all those goodies and my nose takes me where it needs to when it's dinner time. Believe me I don't need to see you to know that you will love me. I can hear it in your soft comforting voice and I can feel it in your gentle touch.





So if you are looking for that "special" someone to make your life complete, I am your girl. Ask for me by name, “Mitzi".  Just put my name at the top of your application and the volunteers will know it's me and only me that you want to adopt.  Hurry don't delay, I'll be waiting... (*)

Eli and Peyton

DOB:  August 6, 2014


Peyton has been adopted and Eli has an adoption pending


Peyton and Eli are two VERY loving kittens.  They start to purr just when they know you are going to pick them up or pet them.  They love to take a nap on you on the couch, or fall asleep in your arm.  They also get along fine with other cats and children.  This Peyton and Eli won't play football for you, but they do have wonderful wrestling matches to entertain you.  Both of these kittens are active and playful. (*)

DOB: March 31, 2014



I was named Sampson because I was the biggest one in the litter, but I'm not a big brute at all.  I'm just a sweet boy who loves to play with all my toys and the other cats in my foster home.  And I'm really well-mannered for being so young.  Once I get to know you, I love to be petted, but I don't really like to be held for very long.  See my beautiful markings?  I also have a little white stripe down my back -- my foster daddy sometimes calls me "Skunk" but I'm anything BUT a stinker!!!

Memoriana loves attention! She is a very sweet girl with beautiful markings. She likes other cats, but she has never lived with dogs or children. (*)








Remix, Audio, Lyric and Capella

DOB:  May 1, 2014



These adorable babies were only four weeks old when their previous owner removed them from their mom and abandoned them at a high kill shelter. Luckily, they were rescued the same day and have been in a foster home ever since. In the beginning, they still needed to be bottle-fed (see picture on the right). After overcoming several health issues, Remix and his siblings are now healthy and ready to find their forever homes. They are shy in new situations and will most likely need a few days to adjust to a new home, but they are fearless and playful in their foster home. All four of them would do best without young children and with another cat to play with. Or, even better, adopt a pair!









Remix is the biggest and most playful of the litter. He loves all toys (and playing with his siblings), but DaBird is definitely his favorite! (*)










Audio, the other boy in the litter, is almost as big as his brother Remix. He loves to play and is starting to turn into more of a cuddler. (*)











Lyric has gorgeous dilute Calico markings. She is a bit more laid back than her brothers, but really enjoys the company of the other cats.








Capella is the smallest and cuddliest. This little girl loves to climb into her foster mom’s lap and ask for attention. (*)






DOB:  April 18, 2014



Nina is very shy and cautious and would be great as a one-person cat. She likes to be held and petted, but she has to be caught since she doesn’t seek out contact. However, she is also very playful and loves treats. (*)










DOB:  April 16, 2014



Sixx is a shy little girl, but very sweet once she gets to know you.
