Gouda

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Who wouldn’t want to add an extra helping of sweetness, joy, and love into their lives? Well, if the answer to that question is “Me, I would!!”, then we have the girl for you! Gorgeous Gouda, a long-time resident at Francisvale, is an undiscovered treasure. She is outgoing, affectionate, and playful, loving to get her belly rubbed and to play chase with her balls. She is sure to bring a smile to your face as she companionably relaxes with you, sunning herself on the windowsill and happily accepting treats from her best friend. Gouda is laid-back and easy-going…just look into those mesmerizing green eyes, and you can see that she epitomizes the ideals of peaceful contentedness and living in the moment. When you come to Francisvale, ask for Gouda by name. She tends to be a bit shy when people come to visit at the shelter, and she hides her light under a basket. But, if you give Gouda a chance to shine in a home of her own, you will be delighted with the beautiful little soul you selected. When it comes to unconditional love, Gouda is tops!

Tippy

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Tip your hat to this tiptop Tippy, a sweetheart of a senior kitty who will supply a gentility and gentleness to your abode. Although Tippy’s early years were fraught with times of insecurity and danger, she was fortunately rescued from those frightening conditions by a wonderfully caring individual. For many years now, since those trying experiences, Tippy has lived in the safety of Francivale’s loving surroundings. . Now, it would be so lovely for Tippy to find a special home of her own where she can finally feel the sense of family that is longed for by us all. She loves to commune with nature and keenly observes all that is going on outside of her domain. A nice meal, some yummy treats, and loving companions would yield a great sign of contentment from this wee girl. If you cherish a sense of peace and serenity in your environment, Tippy is the kitty for you.

Willow

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Winsome Willow will steal your heart away with her hypnotizing green eyes and the ying and yang of her lush black and white coat. Like the ancient willow tree, our girl is gracefully lithe and a delicate beauty. But that exterior belies a strength that has withstood great adversity. Spending her early years on the streets, Willow learned the value of flexibility and adaptability. Then, fortune shone down on her, and she came to reside at Francisvale. Over the years, this savvy girl has come to enjoy the great indoors. She shares her love with gentle rubs up against your legs, appreciates yummy treats, and keeps a watchful eye on the world outside her window. Willow will blossom with a tender, sensitive guardian who allows her to relate in her own time and space. Let Willow find her way with you, and your life will be all the better for it.

Bucky Cat

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

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. Bucky had a rough start in life, coming to Francisvale as just a wee kitten, after suffering from severe neglect. She has been a beloved member of the Francisvale family since that time.  Now, at fourteen years of age, Bucky Cat would love to enjoy her senior years in the comfort and caring of her very own forever home. She is a pretty, brown tabby with serene eyes which belies a still feisty personality. She would love to share her life with a person or family who would love her to pieces. She enjoys sweet naps and checking out the neighborhood action while perched on a window sill. Come and spend some time getting to know her, and you will fall in love!
