Picasso

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

A perfect work of art, Picasso is stunningly exotic with mesmerizing golden/green eyes encircled in a sea of black velvety fur. Still a kitten, just barely over a year old, this boy maintains an air of serenity despite an extremely rocky start in his life. Born into a hoarding environment, life was uncertain and unsafe for a wee kitty. Fortunately, Picasso’s luck changed when he was rescued from this harsh situation by Good Samaritans who brought him and 2 other darling kitties, Mona and Dora, to the refuge and protection of Francisvale. Picasso would love to land in peaceful surroundings that would help him to maintain his inner calm and to have the company of other felines as part of his new family. Help Picasso find the best canvas for him so he can create his life’s masterpiece.

Winnie

Friday, October 26th, 2018

Win the big one when you choose our Winnie as your newest family member! This kitten, having just turned one in September, has had a rough start in her young life. On the streets with no place to call her own, no steady source of food, and no family to call her own is a hard knocks way to begin. Fortunately, Winnie has landed in the caring and compassionate hands of those at Francisvale who have taken her into their hearts. Despite her challenging introduction to life, though, Winnie is a resilient little soul who maintains a sweet, fun-loving disposition. This pretty little calico with a fair sprinkling of snowy white fur is a treasure. During this festive season of the year, consider giving Winnie the best gift of all – a family and home to call her own.

Ivan

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

If you want a kitty in your life who is vivacious and fun-loving, Ivan’s your guy. Just a tad over two years old, Ivan is inquisitive and loves to have a good time. He is a sensitive soul who would like to be your one and only, but don’t think this guy is a wallflower. Oh no, he would also love to rough house with his favorite two-legged playmates. Ivan is a knockout in his black and white coat with piercing green eyes. This guy packs a lot of punch in his teeny little nine pound bod – a lot of sugar, that is. Give this boy some of your sweet lovin’… a great time will be had by all!

Halo

Friday, March 9th, 2018

 Earning your halo and angel’s wings is no small feat, but somewhere a bell is tinkling for our kitty who has done just that. Our boy, Halo, has experienced the roughest side of life yet has come out the other end with a sweet heart and a loving personality intact. Neglect and lack of care resulted in Halo losing his tail and vision in one eye, but those sad times have not gotten him down. Halo is as full of love and quiet peace as anyone can be, and he will happily share those attributes with you. He is gentle and sweet and wants nothing more than to be with someone who loves him as he is. He shares his joy with energetic purring, some happy drooling, and asking for belly rubs. Halo’s exterior may look a little frayed around the edges, but give him a chance, and you will find a true diamond within.

Marigold

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Gardeners sometimes employ the technique of companion planting in order for pairings to enjoy improved growth through supporting each other. Marigolds are a good example of a plant that provides invaluable support for others. You can experience your own version of this if you team up with our 14 month old Marigold. This petite kitty with fur the color of the rising sun at dawn is in a word spectacular. Her first experience as being that “companion plant” came when, as a homeless kitty, she sheltered on the grounds of an assisted living facility where she befriended a loving and kind woman.  Wouldn’t it be great if you and our playful, energetic Marigold became the “companion plants” in each other’s lives and could bloom and blossom together?

Achilles

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Our boy Achilles is casting his eyes up to the heavens and asking the universe to send him his very own special someone to love. Could it be you? This six and a half year old black and white could be the yin to your yang. A conversationalist at heart, Achilles has found his own voice and will while away the days with you sharing his chatter and companionable observations. Achilles likes living large and that includes being a food aficionado. He loves to eat and has set his internal clock to know exactly when chow-down time is. Giving him a hug is like wrapping your arms around a big ole marshmallow – yummy, soft, and cuddly! Achilles loves company so, if you are someone who hangs out by the home fires a lot, Achilles is your guy. Sometimes, this boy just needs to get away from it all, and who of us doesn’t, so he tucks himself into the tiniest nooks and crannies he can find and contents himself watching the world go by…serenity at its best! The only Achilles’ heel this guy has is that he wants to find a family of his own, and who can blame him for that? Treat yourself to a conversation with Achilles at Francisvale, and you’ll find yourself smitten!

Aurora

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Aurora, a name that engenders an air of mystique and sophistication, translates to mean “dawn”, derived from the “goddess of the sunrise.” This petite and totally elegant girl, with her cool gray/white coat and piercing green eyes, is as radiant and sleek as they come – a total heart throb. Youthful Aurora, just a babe at two years old, is a sweetheart to the tenth degree. She spreads her sunshine all day long, loving your lap and the continuous head scratches you will naturally give her as you snuggle up to watch your favorite movies together! Of course, your favorite movie is her favorite movie, too! Go figure! Lounging in the sun and enjoying lovely treats makes for a tip top day, in her humble opinion. Aurora loves the company of other cats and also seems pretty open-minded about the dogs in her life too. She particularly blossoms with any adoring attention she gets from her two-legged friends – that would be you! This little girl is no wallflower either as she loves to play and is full of fun- loving “cat-itude.” There is no doubt that her spunk and feistiness will definitely make you smile! Consider enriching your life while ringing in the New Year by inviting Aurora into your life, into your heart, and into your home!

Storm

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

The Phillies may be experiencing some rainouts recently, but little Storm kitty is nothing but a home run in our book. This boy is cool, calm, and collected just like a batter at the plate getting ready to swing. If you’re looking for a live wire, consider playing ball with our guy whose happy little streak of mischief will bring a twinkle to your eye. Clocking in at three-and-a-half years young, Storm is looking for that forever family who will treasure, protect, and truly care for him. Wearing his uniform of white, black, and gray, this boy strikes a handsome and distinctive figure. Storm is also a great team player and is a-okay about hanging out with other kitty-mates. Storm doesn’t mind enjoying spectator sports either…checking out those birds and squirrels roaming around his dugout. Don’t let Storm’s name fool you, he’s really the rainbow you see when the dark clouds clear, and the game is back in play!

Charlie

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Charming Charlie can’t wait ‘til he is able to waltz into your life so that he can share his own unique brand of love and joy directly with you. This boy is the quintessential lap cat who will be over the moon sharing a quiet time with you even enjoying your reading a good story to him as you chill out together. Charlie-boy is a gentle soul who, although he falls into the “senior” category is still in touch with his inner kitten, enjoying frolicking with his toys and living the good life with his other cat friends. Charlie can also be found lounging at a nearby window taking in all that the big outdoors has to offer.  This boy, although a svelte 14 pounds, loves his wet-only food. You serve it; he eats it – with relish! Charlie would love a peaceful, serene home so he doesn’t have to be anxious. Your special brand of TLC will be a great asset to Charlie, and, in return, he will give you a wonderful dose of the music and magic that makes a happy time for all. A win-win all around!
