Welcome, students, to Zoey 101: Introduction to Zoey. I’m Zoey, and I’ll be your professor this semester. In this class you’ll learn the basics of caring for your Zoey, including long petting sessions, soft food, and extra love. I have years of experience being a Zoey, and I’m not known as a difficult grader, so I’m the best possible teacher you could have. If you have questions about majoring in Zoey please stop by the shelter for my office hours. Class dismissed!

Good Sir Hugo welcomes you to his estate and hopes your journey was pleasant. Please, take a seat. No really, sit down. Sir Hugo wants to sit on you. Oh, do you have a free hand? You can use it to pet Sir Hugo. In fact, what is your other hand doing? That should also be used to pet Sir Hugo. Or to play with him. Or to carry him around, if you aren’t interested in sitting. Really, Sir Hugo would like to be the center of your world at all times. He will do best in a home with one of his fellow noble cats from the shelter because even the attention of adoring humans isn’t enough for this love machine. Good Sir Hugo bids you good day!

[An excerpt from Sabin's private journal]

Dear Diary,

Today was a great day. I woke up early today - 9:30 a.m.! - to be ready for the nice people who come in to take care of us. All the morning volunteers played with me and told me how handsome I am. (My mirror tells me this is true.) Then I took a nap and gave myself a bath. I finished just in time to get to my afternoon shift at the window, and before long more volunteers showed up! They brushed me and told me how handsome I am. (Again, true.) The only thing that would make my day better is to have a home of my own with some friendly people - and maybe even a canine sibling? But now it's bath time again and then to bed to dream of the people who will come to find me soon. That will be a really great day!

Good night,

Sabin

You know how some people just get you? Well, the folks here got me right away, because they named me Lap Lover, and that pretty much sums me up. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m totally OK without a lap. I also love head bumps, extended petting sessions, and playtime. But if you’re sitting down and have a lap ... it would be a shame to see it go to waste. I’m a handsome boy who would love to soak up all your attention, so stop by the shelter and visit me!

Hi, I’m Oscar! I’ve had kind of a big year. First, I was on the euthanasia list. That means they didn’t want me to live anymore. Thankfully, Feline Rescue saved me! They put me in a nice foster home. Then I had to have surgery. I was nervous but Main Street Veterinary Service took out the bone fragments that were left in my paws when someone took my claws out and they also released my tendons which were hyperextended. Now it doesn’t hurt when I walk! That makes me so happy. I feel like the luckiest guy already but I’m hoping I can ask for one more thing…a forever home. I’m an independent guy who likes an occasional cuddle or playing with toys. I mostly like to spend my days napping and laying in the sun. I think I could live with another cat if they wouldn’t bother me or beg me to play. Being without my claws makes me nervous so I mostly like to stick with humans. Have you got a comfy spot for me? To request an appointment with me, call Joan at 651-705-6264 or submit an online adoption inquiry form.

Are you in need of a classy date for New Year's Eve? My name is Kristoff and I'm excellent date material. I'm charming, handsome, a great dancer, and I come stylishly attired in all black. Whether you're interested in a quiet night with a movie or a rowdy party with wand toys and catnip, you won't find a better companion than me. And maybe that one date could turn into forever? That would be awesome! Stop by the Adoption Center for a quick meet-and-greet.

I'm Nicholas By. I'm kind of adorable, aren't I? And even better in purrson! I love to sit on laps and snuggle close. I was a neighborhood favorite during my time as a stray, making my rounds from house to house to visit all my friends. It's really hard not to fall in love with me when you meet me. I love to chase toys if you throw them for me. When people come to say hi, I run to them and greet them. I'm a healthy, strong guy despite having a retrovirus (FeLV) that can cause immunodeficiency. If you'd like to know more about me, just stop in at the Adoption Center to meet me or leave a message for my human assistant at 651-642-5900 ext. 3. She'll call you back.

Hi, I'm Penny Paws but around here, I'm known as Mama Feets. That's because I've been blessed with lots of extra toes...some thumbs in the front and two extra on each foot in the back! (Swipe right to see my magnificent back paws!) They say I'm well-suited for snowshoeing or scuba diving but after living the outdoor life, I'm plenty happy to rest my feet on carpet.

My daughter, Pippi (or Baby Feets), and I are looking for a home together. We like other cats and staring out the window and we LOVE to play and especially to be outside in this cool catio that our foster caregiver has. We are both sweet and curious but we're very cautious and not quite ready to be touched yet so we're hoping to find a home with someone willing to be very patient and quiet while they work with us and understand that we will come to you for pets when we are ready. In the meantime, we're very happy for you to dangle that stick toy, feed us treats and admire our many toes. I would be so happy to be able to find a forever home for my daughter and myself for the holidays and know that we are safe forever.

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but Jamima's so delightful! Jamima Puddle Duck is a striking senior tortie who isn't interested in being held tight, but she'd love a home of her own. Her ideal place to go? A home with no other cats and a human who will be patient and kind to a lady who's been through a bit of a storm. She'll also happily take a nice warm bed and a few wand toys! She's currently working in the office at the Adoption Center...stop by and visit her!

Hi, I’m Cottage (the winky one) and this is my sister Jessamine. We are silky, fluffy girls who spent the first year of our lives outdoors. Then we got to see what indoor living is like and woo boy, is this the life for us!! We are sold! We are friendly girls who enjoy being pet, playing with toys and having wild chases with each other. We’re looking for a quiet home of our own with someone who will be patient with us while we transition.
I have a secret Christmas request for my sister, though. See, she LOVES snuggling with boy kitties. It’s her favorite. She rubs up against them and grooms them and naps with them. So even though we want to go together, I would love for us to go to a place that has a boy kitty for her to cuddle with. He doesn’t even have to play, we take care of that on our own, he just has to want to snuggle! Can you make that dream come true? Or know someone who can? Jessamine does such a good job of making me feel brave and I want her to be the happiest.
You can fill out an online application or call Joan at 651-705-6264 to visit us in our foster home.

Here comes Fiddlesticks,
Here comes Fiddlesticks,
Right down Kitty Cat Way!

Unlike that jolly guy in the red suit, Fiddlesticks doesn't attract a lot of attention. He's a sweet, affectionate boy who often gets overlooked in the busy shelter. While he likes his cat roommates at the shelter just fine, he'd really rather have a family - maybe with a furry sibling or two? And a nice warm bed? And maybe a scratcher of his very own? This year he's hanging his stocking and hoping that his person finally comes along to make his world merry and bright. Stop by the adoption center and meet him!

Hi, I’m Shelby. For the holidays, I'd love to find a quiet home of my own. I'm six years old and have six toes on each foot. Maybe six is my lucky number? I love petting and purring! I enjoy scratches all the way from my head to my back. I think I could live with another cat as long as I have time to adjust. I've been waiting for a home for a long time now so I really hope my wish comes true! Please call Joan at 651-705-6264 or fill out an online application to come visit me in my foster home.

Your house might not be the quiet spot for me but your friend's house might be! Will you please repost this to help me find my forever home?

Hi, I'm Mr. Cheeks. They said it was my turn to ask for a special holiday wish! I am a sweet, easy-going cat who is looking for a family of my own to love. I like to follow you around to see what you're up to. I'm very playful, too. I like to give hugs. I reach up and put my paws on either side of your neck and give you head bumps. I also love to sleep at the foot of your bed. I'm great with young children. I'm fine with dogs, too! I also think I would like to have another cat buddy because I really want to wrestle. I do have Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV - it's not a cancer despite the name) so am looking for someone extra special to love me. Meet me in foster care when it's convenient for you! Please call Molly at 651-295-3758 to make us a date.

If I'm not the guy for you, will you please repost this on your account? One of your friends might make my wish come true!

Cha Cha Baby doesn't need Santa to slip a sable under the tree or a '54 convertible (light blue). What she really needs is a home of her own where she can scamper and play. She has been an awful good girl this year and would love a home where she can be the only cat with people who appreciate her antics and don't expect lots of snuggles. Check off Cha Cha's Christmas list and bring her home for the holidays!

Cha Cha is headed to foster care to receive treatment for her asthma so you can call Joan at 651-705-6264 or submit an online adoption inquiry form to learn more about her!

Are you looking for a buddy? Want to make Gill's only Christmas wish come true? Gill is a fluffy, friendly guy. He loves sitting on laps and doing whatever you're doing. He likes to play, to sleep on fuzzy fleece blankets, and to greet you with head bonks when you come home. Gill would prefer to live with adults and to be your only cat. If you are looking for one handsome feline friend, then call Molly at 651-295-3758 to hear more or schedule an appointment to meet Gill. He can't wait to get his own lap to sleep on.

Some of the kitties who have been in our care for a while are hoping for a special holiday miracle ... a home of their own!
Dante is one of these cats. He’s a calm, affectionate guy with a great personality who likes a lot of resting and a little playtime. He enjoys being brushed (even if he has to do it himself!), watching the bird and squirrel channels out the window, and keeping people company. He has charmed many volunteers! He has well-regulated diabetes and requires one easy insulin injection a day. If you need this handsome and calming presence in your house this season, call Molly at 651-295-3758 or fill out an online adoption inquiry form and make this guy’s wish come true!

This little dude is FAST! Meet Beanie, a young ginger who is all about the chase. He’s spunky, curious, and darn cute. Oh, and after he wears himself out with chasing, he’s perfectly happy to cuddle. All that in a tiny package!

Tuti Frutti is as colorful as her name suggests, both her coat and her personality. She’s so little and cute you just want to hug her, but this girl is not about the #snuglife. She wants to be on the go and patrolling her territory or observing from a convenient perch. Though she’s happy to be off the streets, she’s not thrilled to be at @felinerescue where other cats interfere with her routine. Why not stop by and sample this deliciously adorable cat?

ADOPTION STORY from @alicesblood
・・・
This is Elvira. About a month ago, this gorgeous girl came into my life. She's had a rough life and I was nervous about how she would adjust but she's grown to be very sweet and affectionate. I'm incredibly grateful to feline rescue and to Elvira's foster parents for giving her so much love and patience.

John Henry says “Happy Thanksgiving!” We’re so #grateful to all of our supporters and adopters! We couldn’t do what we do without you. John Henry will be dining privately today but you can visit him at the shelter after the holiday. 🦃

When it’s cold out, it sure is nice to snuggle up under a warm fleece blanket. Especially if you’ve just been shaved! Kindles got a necessary groom but it’s left her feeling a little drafty. If you ask, though, she’s happy to let you pet her plushy body.

Mikiko is getting tired of waiting to meet her new people. She’s looking for someone to hang out and snuggle with and maybe play hide & seek with, too. She’s gladly accepting visitors in her room at the adoption center.

Some cats like to keep busy. Niemeyer not so much. Even when he’s playing he prefers to stay in one place and let the toy come to him. Here he is also showing off his exceptional talent for camouflage. This big, buff ball of chill is at @felinerescue waiting for the right person to come to him!
