Cupcake, Precious, and Momma Kitty

These three cats were also a part of the seizure case that the 26 second chance dogs came from.

Cupcake is the most outgoing of the bunch. She loves to come and greet you, looking for attention.

Previous is a regal princess of a cat. She’s gorgeous and she knows it! Still, she enjoys letting her subjects give her a good petting. 🙂

Precious, taken July 12, 2019.

Momma Kitty is a lovey doll of a cat who can’t get enough petting. She absolutely adores high places, such as the top of a cat tree.

All three cats are spayed and updated on their vaccinations. They have tested negative for feline leukemia, been dewormed, and treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in any time it’s open, no appointment necessary, M-F 2-6 and Sat. 10-noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, come in anyway and give the critters some attention!

Tamara, aka TamTam

Tamara, taken July 12, 2019.

Tamara, aka Tam Tam, is a very sweet and lovable cat whose ideal is sleep on her person’s bed at night and be a part of the family.

Tamara asking for some attention, taken July 2, 2019.

She shared the house with another female cat, though has no experience with dogs. She has a naturally nervous disposition, as in, she gets stressed out easily. However, she was super sweet with her last owner, and shared a bed with her every night since kittenhood. Since she has settled in at the shelter, she has proven to be super sweet here too. She accepts visitors graciously, and gets along well with her mature, quiet kitty roommates.
She just needs a quiet home without a lot of noise and activity. She would not likely do well in a home with rambunctious young children.

Tamara rolling around and wanting tummy rubs, taken July 12, 2019.

Tamara is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. She is also front declawed. She tested negative for feline leukemia. She has also been wormed and treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

Tamara is a spotted patched tabby, rather the usual striped. Taken July 12, 2019.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in and meet her, no appointment necessary, during open hours: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, we love for volunteers to stop in and play with and socialize the critters; it does them so much good!

Pewter

Born appx. 2013. (Possibly older.)

Pewter. Taken May 24, 2019.

Pewter was originally found roaming on the 200 block of Sunrise blvd. on May 23, 2019. She has yet to have anyone come claim her, so she is available for adoption. (Though if anyone does know where she belongs, please do get the word around! We’d rather see her back with her original family.)

Pewter. Taken May 24, 2019.

She looked heavily pregnant at the time of her finding, but it ends up she was just that well fed. When she was brought in to the vet on June 18 to have two rotten teeth extracted, the vet found a spay scar.

Pewter is very sweet and acts like she is someone’s pampered house cat who just slipped out one day.

Pewter is spayed. She has been updated on her vaccinations, treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), been dewormed, and given a medicated/antifungal bath. She is ready to go!

If you are interested in adopting Pewter, or happen to know anything about her original family, please contact the shelter at 507-644-3853. You can also stop in to meet her anytime the shelter is open, no appointment necessary; M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, come in anyway and play with, groom, or just offer a warm lap to the cats.

Cindy, Tar, Inky, Magic, and Panda

Born April 9, 2019.

These five siblings all need homes! They were born to a feral mother and are a little shy at first, but are quickly learning just how wonderful that people can be. We welcome any volunteers to come play with them and continue to teach them how fun it is to play with people.

They will be spayed/neutered* and will be updated on their vaccines as a part of their adoption fee. They have also received dewormings, been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have had a medicated/antifungal bath.

*Kittens who are not yet old enough at the time of adoption will be spayed/neutered as a part of the adoption fee when they reach an appropriate age. The adopter needs to bring the kitten back to our partnering vet, Riverside Animal Clinic in Redwood Falls. The adoption fee covers their spay/neuter as long as it’s done through this specific vet. (We do not cover the spay/neuter if done at a non-partnering veterinarian.)

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, and meet them: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are welcome to come play with the kitties and help socialize them!

Thackery Binx

Thackery Binx, taken 06/05/2019.

Thackery Binx is a very sweet and lovey house cat who is looking for a new home to call his own. He is unbelieveably sweet, and such a character! He wants to be around people as much as possible. If you are on the wrong side of a door, he will let you know your mistake, and encourage you to remedy it.

Thackery wants in!

Thackery still has a lot of kitten to him. He loves to play! You can really get him going with a wand toy. He loves to explore too. The more toys, the better! And things to climb on are wonderful too.

He gets along great with other cats. He loves to play with them! He also gets along with dogs. (The little dog he was tested with did not phase him.)

Thackery is about 4 years old. He is neutered and front declawed.

Brix, Nero, Moscato, and Malo

These four little kittens were found in a windowell. (That’s the second time this year a feral mother has left her kittens in someone’s windowell! And no, these were not the same homes.) The finders were unable to locate their mother. However, Jemma, who is nursing her own four, was quite willing to take on these as well. She is back from foster and at the shelter just for that job. These kittens are about at that age that they can start to eat on their own, so should hopefully not be too taxing on Jemma.

Born appx. May 1, 2019. Ready to go after June 19, 2019.

Many of you who follow the goings on at the shelter I’m sure remember Jemma, the lovely, sweet calico cat who has been through so much over the last two months!

Jemma, taken April 2, 2019.

She was found hit by a car, which meant the eventual amputation of her tail. (Thanks again to everyone who helped to defray the cost of that surgery!) She’d had ear mites for so long that her ears were horribly infected and painful. We got that fixed up too. On top of that, she was discovered to have a rotten tooth which needed extracting. Due to tooth extractions being so dirty, the vet told us she couldn’t be spayed for at least three weeks after.

Find her full story here:
http://redwoodareaanimalshelter.com/2019/03/17/found-cat-jemma/

Well, as her spay date approached, it became apparent that Jemma was, in fact, pregnant. We were all amazed to learn that all her unborn kittens had survived their mother being hit by a car, having an amputation, and a tooth extraction! Four healthy kittens were born into foster two weeks ago.

Hershey

Hershey is a friendly and lovely young tortoiseshell who is looking for a new home!

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

She has some of the biggest, roundest eyes we have seen!

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

She appears to have lost the ends of her ears to frostbite at some point, giving her a kind of jungle cat look.

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

Don’t let the big eyes and wild look fool you though! She is actually very affectionate and social, and not at all crazy. (Except maybe for some catnip and good toys…) Come meet her and see for yourself!

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

Hershey gets along with some calmer cats, but does not get along so well with younger, playful cats. She prefers to be left alone by other cats. She is not fond of dogs.

Born appx. May 1, 2018.

Hersheyis spayed. She has also been updated on her vaccines. She has been dewormed and received a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.) She has tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to check for internal parasites, and has received a medicated/ antifungal bath.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours; M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to come in and play with her, or any of the other critters, anyway. No appointment necessary; stop in anytime the shelter is open.

They have received dewormings, been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have had a medicated/antifungal bath.
