Jewel is a gorgeous domestic short-haired black cat estimated to be 1-3 years old. She is an active girl with events scheduled throughout the day such as playing with toys and laser lights, but her main goal is to give her humans as much love as possible. She is a great “companion” kitty. She loves to be pet and will “make biscuits” and help you “work.” Jewel CAN be competitive for attention if you have other cats so it probably is best she be the only love of your life. Jewel is also good with children.
Daniel is a 7-month-old black cat with gorgeous gold eyes. He was recently rescued with his brother, Jack, from a backyard while looking for food. The brothers look identical and are very bonded so the “Jack and Daniel boys” will need to be adopted together. Both are extremely playful and affectionate kittens looking for their forever home. They are great around other cats, kids, and maybe dogs. They love to run around chasing toys, running up cat trees, hanging out in a window to watch birds, and sitting on your lap to enjoy some human companionship.
Bean is Havana brown, with a beautiful rare coat and greenish eyes. She is sweet and lovable, and craves attention and petting. Her hobbies include reading, tai chi, and yoga. When you call her name she likes to answer you. Currently a little chubby because she eats everyone else’s dinner including her own, Bean should be able to stay on her diet when in her new home eating “light” food.
Starlight is a sweet domestic short-haired brown Tabby, about 6 years old. She is very snuggly and does OK with other cats. It isn’t known whether she’d like to share her life with a dog. She does like a quiet environment so probably no children in the home would be best for her. Starlight is up to date on vaccinations, tested for FELV/FIV, spayed and microchipped. She had a “dental” where she had to have her upper canine teeth removed, but she does well without them. Her adoption fee is $85.
Bud and Dud are 11-month-old orange and white cats who are known to be two peas in a pod. These brothers were facing possible euthanasia because they had ringworm as young kittens. Fortunately, Lost Our Home Pet Foundation was able to rescue and medically treat them — now they are looking for their forever home. Both cats are extremely friendly to humans and cats, love to play with toys while chasing each other up and down a cat tree, and like to sit on your lap. Can you give them a chance at a new life?
Wobbly was born outside and caught a cold as a kitten, which vets say affected his brain so he now has a tremor.

Wobbly is fixed, tested, and has all his shots. If interested in Wobbly, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Arizona Humane Society unveiled a new cat isolation area at its Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. The isolation area is the second of its kind for the Arizona Humane Society after the first one was expanded in 2010. The new space has been open roughly six weeks and has had approximately 40 temporary residents, some of whom are now in foster care and others who have recovered and are now in their forever homes. The space requires those who enter to gown and glove up while also wearing removable show covers. Daily evaluations of these animals include how they are responding to the medications, attitude, appetite and hydration. In addition, the new space gives AHS the ability to get to know the cats even better and provide that information to adopters.

Ava, a 2-year-old Balinese, is truly a beautiful cat with her lovely coloring, soft, luxurious fur, and big, blue eyes. There is more to this girl than good looks, though.

The continual purring that emanates from Ava causes you to further lose track of time and before you know it, you’ve been alternating between petting and brushing Ava’s beautiful fur coat for who knows how long.

Her foster family reports that she is very playful and loves to chase toys and objects around the house. She has never been introduced to dogs and would require a slow transition to a house with dogs.
Handsome Louie is a super affectionate and talkative red and white cat. He’s tall with long, white legs. He enjoys napping in a cat tree all day and watching TV or playing poker at night. Louie is fine with friendly, mellow cats and would also be great as king of the castle and your only cat.

Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
Kora was found in an abandoned house with several other cats. She is a somewhat shy, but quickly warms up after she gets to know you. She is an extremely sweet and calm cat who basically gets along with everyone. She recently lost her “sister” to an illness and could really use some extra love and support. She enjoys sleeping in a cubby within a cat tree and will always come out to greet other cats and people. She is very loving and needs that special person to give the patience and attention she desperately needs. Can you give Kora a chance at a new life?
