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!

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.

One of the joys of a Saturday morning can be that full stack of pancakes swimming in syrup. But who needs to deal with those troublesome calories when you can get all the sweetness in the world wrapped up in one little ten pound kitty. So, our two-and-a-half old Pancake might just be the ticket you’re looking for in your life. This boy equally loves to play and to cuddle with his BFF, and he’s no slouch in the chatterbox department either. Pancake would appreciate being the one and only four-legged critter in your heart and really wants nothing more than a safe and secure haven to call home. On top of all that, he is absolutely over-the-top handsome (Think Robert Redford in the Sting) which is only accentuated by his calm, serene aura. Once you get a taste of our boy, Pancake, you’ll no doubt just want to make him yours!

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?

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, 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!

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!

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.

Honey Bunny

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Our Honey is a five letter word meaning serenity so if you could use a dose of peacefulness in your life (and who couldn’t!), this is the girl for you. Lovely green eyes that are the windows to her gentle soul shine out from her lush, just-gotta-pet fur coat. Honey appreciates the quiet life, and, if you are of a like-mind, this is the girl for you. A little shy at first, Honey turns on the charm when she gets to know you – happy to sit by your side enjoying some head scratches and kitty treats in companionable fellowship. World watching through her favorite window is happiness indeed for this lovely lady.  Honey is a real honey of a cat, and she can be your honey too.

As the days draw closer to the coming of spring and the renewal of all things green, our Bucky Cat keeps the faith that it will soon be her turn for a forever home.
