ADINA and PADDY
Adina is a very affectionate and playful girl. She is outgoing and loves to be held. She is a super sweet girl with lots of energy. She especially loves feather toys! She has bonded with an orange boy kitty named Paddy in the adoption center. They sleep together and love to play together. They would like to find a new home together, without other animals. No young kids would be best.
Paddy is a very sweet boy. He loves to sit in your lap and follow you around - as long as he is near you! He is gentle and affectionate, and also likes to play. He is very smart; he knows exactly where the latch on his cage is and will knock the lock off to try to get out. He will also stick his paws out of the cage and bend them to 90 degrees to play with the cats in the cage next to his.
ARIEL and METE HAN
Ariel and her brother Mete Han were surrendered due to allergies in the family. They are bonded and looking for a home together. Mete Han is much more shy and retiring than Ariel. Mete Han needs an owner who will give him a lot of attention and love to build up his confidence. He can be scared around sudden movements and loud noises. He would thrive in a cat-loving household if only someone would give him a chance. Ariel is a quiet, sweet cat. She is on the shy side but is friendly and enjoys being petted. She loves to play and she especially loves treats. We think they have bad experience with kids and/or dogs being too rough with them in the past, so they are looking for an adult home with no other animals (but each other!). Please give these sweet shy babies a second chance!
BOOTS and TONY
Boots (gray and white) and her brother Tony (brown and white) were rescued from the street after the death of their owner. The person who has been taking care of them is moving and can no longer care for them, so they are looking for a new home together. They are a smart, quiet, content, easy-going pair. They like to nap in a sunny window.
CHESSIE and HANDSOME
Chessie has all the charm and personality you could ask for in one big kitty. He knows just how cute he is and is happy to show off to everyone. He loves to be around people and likes being the center of attention. He acts just like a dog and comes right over to you for lots of affection and petting. He also doesn’t mind being held. He is curious and playful, but also enjoys a good cuddle or nap. He would be fine as a solo cat, or with another cat or a dog. He likes to play with other cats, and mostly ignores dogs when he meets them. This outgoing boy is also quite the talker, happy to tell you what he wants, which is usually more food or attention. He really likes his food too, eating is probably his second favorite thing after getting all the attention that he wants. Chessie can’t wait to find his forever home where he can have someone to cuddle with, play with and give him all of the attention he deserves. He is bonded with his friend Handsome, so they are looking for a home together.
Handsome likes to have his head rubbed and will repay you by kissing your arm. He loves being brushed and cat treats. He has the cutest little face and he just loves attention. He gives head butts and loves his little toy furry mouse. He is like a big baby. Handsome is bonded with his friend Chessie, and they are looking for a home together. They get along well with other cats too!
ADOPTED!! MADISON and DAKOTA
Dakota and his sister Madison are looking for a new home together after their owner died unexpectedly. They are very affectionate. They look sad but as soon as you pet them they open up and just want love. They are both overweight and need to be on a diet of wet food (which they love) and exercise (which they don't care for at the moment - lap cats all the way!) They were clearly loved by their owner and now they need a second chance to find their forever home. Dakota does not seem to like other cats as he hisses at them if they come close, so they need to be in home as the only two cats.
SAM and DEAN
Sam is an approximately 1-year old, domestic shorthair cat that has a kind and gentle personality around all people, including adults and small children. Abandoned by his mother at 2 weeks old, Sam has been raised by people at a young age and is very comfortable being touched, petted, and picked up by anyone -- both familiar and unfamiliar people. Sam communicates very clearly, as he routinely purrs when playing and touched by others; with a soft, fluffy coat, he enjoys being petted. Adventurous at heart, he enjoys exploring large spaces as well as climbing on cat trees. When playing with cat toys, Sam is an excellent jumper and runner. Sam is super affectionate, and loving. He is bonded to his brother, Dean, and they are looking for a home together.
Dean is a gentle, loving, and affectionate lap cat who prefers to be around quiet people. Abandoned by his mother at 2 weeks old, Dean has been raised by people at a young age and is very comfortable being touched, petted, and carefully picked up by older kids and adults. He can be timid, but is never aggressive. Dean communicates very clearly, as he routinely purrs when playing and touched by others; with a soft, coarse coat, he enjoys being petted while he sits on people’s laps. He dislikes loud noises, and would do very well in a household that is quiet, and has minimal loud activities. Dean is bonded with his brother, Sam, and they should be adopted together.
EDDIE and STEVE
Eddie is one of a pair of bonded brothers who needs an understanding, patient family who can give him the time he needs to warm up to his new home. Being left at the shelter really threw the brothers for a loop and they’ve spent a few months getting over their fear and timidity. Eddie is looking for a quiet home with his brother, Steve, where he can continue to bloom as he continues to warm up to people and his confidence grows in a forever home. A beautiful shorthaired tabby with golden eyes, Eddie is the bolder of the brothers and will be the first to venture out and explore his new home. He is playful and loves to be king of the cat tree. So far he is not a snuggler but loves a good head and ear scratch and will seek you out for treats. A real sweetie!
Steve is the shyer of the brothers and has his signals a little mixed up. He will sometimes hiss at you while taking a treat from your hand! After warming up to you, he is an affection seeking lap cat, who likes nothing more than hanging out being brushed a petted. A total lover!
ADOPTED!!! FRANNIE and KIRBY
Frannie was turned into a shelter with four other cats after their owner died. Kirby is her best friend and they need to be adopted together. She will allow you to pick her up and she won’t run and hide, but she is still getting adjusted to her new surroundings so she is somewhat shy. She has started to open up and show her playful side!
Kirby is a big, husky guy. He could stand to lose a few pounds. He and four other cats were turned into a shelter after their owner died. He is best friends with Frannie. He’s quite friendly - always the first one out of the cage. He loves to play and to be petted and groomed and he doesn’t mind being handled.
KATARA and TANK
Katara and Tank were born in July 2016.They are bonded and are looking for a home together. They are both very friendly. They are playful, love to chase balls, and like wand toys. Tank is an oriental with very sleek fur and athletic. He is a cuddler. Katara has the loudest purr for a kitten. Her ear is krimped a bit and it just makes her cuter. She is a lap cat. Both have been raised around dogs and cats. Ok with kids over 6 years. Please note that it is Fancy Cat’s policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.
ADOPTED!! LUCY and MINION
Meet the lovely and charming Lucy. She’s a b-e-a-utiful Calico/Siamese lady with incredibly blue eyes and a lovely calico pattern to include white paws with light pink little toes. This lady is a very laidback kitty cat that enjoys spending her time sleeping in her cat tree, near a window, or on the bed. She is the ultimate cuddle bug and will happily snuggle up and sleep in your nap for as long as possible. Her favorite greeting is to meow at you, head butt your leg and then wait for you to bend down to rub her head. Her family is looking for a new home for her and her sister Minion because their young daughter has developed severe allergies. They shared the following favorite memories of Lucy: When she was first introduced to the laser light, she bounded from the front room to the kitchen and back so many times, she must have been dizzy! It was so much fun for her that she crawled into her owner's lap and promptly fell asleep, still purring from all the excitement. Also, when her owner was pregnant and having pains from the baby moving around, Lucy crawled into her lap, laid on her stomach and started to purr. The baby immediately stopped moving around, like the purring was calming to her. It was such a magical moment, they say. She was at first the only kitty in the house before bonding with a small kitten that her family adopted from another family, named Minion. Now these two are inseparable and love to play/eat/clean/ together. They are looking for a new home together. Now Lucy does require a couple of things: a free flowing water fountain to drink from and wet food in the evening. Both have helped greatly with ensuring she gets enough water in her system so she doesn’t have any urinary crystals. Please inquire about this wonderful little lady and her bonded sister Minion. Her pictures don’t do her any justice.
Meet this quiet little girl, Minion. This somewhat mischievous little girl will creep into your heart the minute she rubs her soft delicate head against your chin. Minion is a lovely dilute calico and has a beautiful soft pattern to include intense green hazel eyes and cute little pink toes. This gentle girl is very laidback and prefers to love from a far at first before getting in close to rub against your legs or lay in your lap. Her usual greeting to watch you from the top of her cat tree and wait for you to get settled before coming over to give you some love in the form of nuzzling your chin or the top your head from the back of the couch. Minion enjoys being brushed, so she will just lay there and purr contently as you work on her coat. Minion and her bonded sister Lucy are looking for a new home because their family's young daughter developed severe allergies. Their favorite moment with her was when she discovered Lucy’s cat tree. She attempted to jump to the highest bed and completely missed. She landed of course on her feet and noticed that the family was watching her. She walked away with her tail in the air like nothing had happened, and that she wasn’t embarrassed at all. Please inquire about the quiet little lady and her bonded sister Lucy. Her pictures don’t do her any justice.
NELLY and NINA
Nina and Nelly are 2 year old sister Maine Coon mixes. They are very nice girls. They love attention and will come right up to you and rub against you for you to pet them. They are also very playful and will jump and play with toy wands.
ADOPTED!!! REESE and SUSAN
Reese was surrendered to Fancy Cats from a family that had found her in their wood pile. She was quite feral and they did not have the time to work with her. She came to a foster home with kids, a dog, and kittens. Originally, she was kept in a cage so that she could feel safe and comfortable. That didn’t last long. Within days she was allowing the foster mom to pet her while she was eating. As she watched the other kittens play, she started playing with them through the bars. Within a week she was fully assimilated into the family, both human and feline. She is such a sweetie and has come to appreciate the finer things in life that a home can provide. She loves, loves, loves to be petted and held. She will purr from the moment you start petting until you leave the room. She’s so happy to be with you that she keeps purring long after you have stopped petting. She will sleep in the bed with you, purring the whole time. It is important to remember that she used to be feral, thus she can be just a little hesitant when you first come into the room, or if you move to fast. However, as soon as she realizes it’s you and that she’s safe, she completely calms down and comes for love. While it’s true that she has no biological littermates, she would really prefer to be adopted with one of the friends she has made in her foster home—Marilyn, Susan, and Mango. She absolutely LOVES Susan. Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.
Susan was born on April 2, 2016. She is the very last of her litter and is looking forward to when she can finally go home. Susan was brought in to Fancy Cats with littermates as an orphan from a shelter. She was bottle fed by her foster family and they love her very much. She considers herself to be quite the hunter. If you have a feather wand she will sneak up on it and catch it reminiscent of her wilder cat relatives. She really loves to wrestle and play chase with the other kittens. She has the softest fur and she is so very cuddly and squishy, like a rag doll. She loves being held and petted and even when she feels like playing, if you scoop her up and scratch in just the right spot behind her ears, she will melt into you for some love. She loves to be with you and will sleep with you at night. While it’s true that she has no biological littermates left, she would really prefer to be adopted with Reese. Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.
GRACIE and VANNA
Gracie is as sweet as can be! She loves greeting people when they come to visit her. She does not like dogs, but she does very well with other cats. Gracie is very loving, friendly, curious and playful. She likes wand toys and chasing the laser light. She enjoys being peted and to be in your lap (when it is her idea). She will often sleep with you, but beware, she hogs the bed-haha!!
Vanna is a very mellow and independent girl. Her favorite place to sleep is on someone's lap. She loves her people, young and old. She's an easygoing young adult cat looking for a forever family. She's fine with other cats as long as they leave her alone. She ignores the dog in her foster home, as long as he ignores her. If you are looking for a great companion, Vanna is your girl!
ADOPTED!! EUGENE and MURRAY
Eugene is a sweet and easy guy. He gets along beautifully with dogs and has no problem accepting other cats. Eugene is a “love bug” and adores attention from anyone and everyone. As soon as someone “makes a lap” (sitting on the floor or on a chair) and gives him the go-ahead, he’ll jump up and cuddle in. He likes to be brushed and loves to rub up against people’s legs. He also loves to eat! Eugene is being surrendered with his brother Murray. The boys have been together all of their lives, and are looking for a home together.
Murray is a sweet, friendly cat who’s shy at first. He’s very independent and loves to explore, but will cuddle up with you once he’s comfortable. He gets along beautifully with dogs and has no problem accepting other cats. Murray really likes the dogs and can often be found snoozing on a dog bed with the Beagle. Murray is being surrendered with his brother Eugene. The boys have been together all of their lives, and are looking for a home together.
A family on a Mission Trip found Murray and his brother Eugene in Honduras, had them vetted and paid for them to be flown to Texas, then they wound up in a rescue in North Carolina where a college kid adopted them and brought them home to Virginia. Turned out that the college girl's mom was highly allergic to cats, so Murray came to live with his current family. He is looking for a new home due to a change in his current owner's living circumstances.
ADOPTED!! MEGAN and MARIAH
Megan is a beautiful gray calico looking for a loving home! She is about 1.5 years old. Megan is definitely a people person.
