Cat Foster Application

Candy - Thanks Geneva for fostering Candy!
CANDY is pure sweetness. She is friendly and loving and lucky to be alive.

Candy was found literally starving in frigid cold weather hovering under a cabin for shelter. A kind family was vacationing in PA and noticed on a five degree day that a cat was taking shelter under their cabin. They immediately put food out for her and weren't surprised to see her gobble it up. Once Candy realized the people were friendly, she literally jumped into the woman's arms and snuggled close to her.

Candy was brought back to VA. She was malnourished and has some fur loss probably from starvation. But Candy is otherwise a healthy girl who is enjoying the love and warmth she is getting in her foster home.

Candy needs a little time to recover and for us to get to know her personality and needs. She'll be ready for adoption soon.

Oreo - Thank you Lucia for fostering Oreo!
Oreo is a lap cat!
OREO is a very sweet boy. He loves hanging out with you and sitting in your lap. Oreo adapts within a few days to new surroundings and is an all-around great kitty.

Oreo was a stray kitty taken in by a kind couple. They first saw him hanging around their bird feeder. When they put food out for him, he slowly started to trust them. Before long, as it got colder and colder outside, this couple decided it was time to bring Oreo inside for safe keeping. No one has claimed Oreo so we have taken him into our care.

We are stil learning about his personality and needs. He will be posted on our adoption page soon.

Sophie & Katie
These girls are sweet and gentle kitties.
SOPHIE & KATIE are very sweet girls. They aren't sisters but have been together since they were kittens. These girls get along very nicely and keep each other company. They need to be adopted as a pair.

SOPHIE is very affectionate and loves to sit with you. She will sit for hours with the oldest child in her home as he plays with X-box. Sophie also likes being petted and played with gently and will sleep at the foot of your bed at night.

KATIE is a very quiet kitty, who is a little shy. She likes to hang out with her family and follows them around. She also comes to you for attention when it's calm and quite. Katie likes to wander around the house to see what everyone is up to. If her buddy, Sophie, isn't around, Katie starts meowing until Sophie comes running.

Sophie and Katie like to hang out with people and with each other. They don't snuggle with each other but are usually found in the morning sleeping near each other on a couch or cat tree. They like to play with toys and with each other. They like the flat cloth toys filled with catnip - taking turns batting them across the hardwood floors and chasing after them. They also like to chase each other up and down the stairs - playing follow the leader.

Sophie and Katie have grown up in a home with three kids, but their transition to a new home should be to a quiet one. Preferably with adults only, although a quiet home with an older child would be fine. Both girls like to hang out with people, and be petted and played with gently. But they don't like being picked up and carried around.

Sophie was adopted out by SPCA as a kitten into a home with a family with kids and two cats, one being Katie. The girls are sadly looking for a new home because one of the children in their home has become severely allergic to them.

That is quiet.
Stardust has a BIG personality!
STARDUST is a friendly, lively teenager! He is easy-going one minute when he's calm or fast asleep then the next minute he's racing around bursting with energy. Stardust loves interactive play with his foster mom but is also very good at entertaining himself. He goes wild for any toy that squeaks or flies. This boy has a lot of energy to burn!

When Stardust is not in play-mode, he is very loving. He likes being the center of attention, being carried around and looking out the windows watching the birds and squirrels outside. Stardust also likes getting his head scratched and gives you 'kitty kisses' in return to show his affection. He needs people who want an interactive cat who craves attention.

Stardust needs another active, confident male cat in his forever home to bond and wrestle with. He can get a little nippy when playing or when he wants something - we expect this behavior to subside once he has the right other active male cat to play with. So humans who know how to handle and redirect this behavior is important. His current foster home has older cats who don't like his rambunctious play.

Stardust is a very healthy, growing boy. He does, however, have somewhat soft stools that could be caused by a food allergy. We will be testing a special hyperallergenic diet on him as soon as we can move him to the right foster home with just one other cat who can also be on this type of diet.

Stardust is a little miracle. He was found running along a rural country road all by himself by an SPCA volunteer. He was hungry and scared, and had fleas and earmites. He also had a scraped up face and part of his tail is missing. None of this has affected Stardust's spirit - he is friendly and full of life. All he needs is an active home to call his own.
