Ella Fitzgerald

Meet Ella Fitzgerald! This sweet and loveable longhaired cat came in with her three kittens: Miles Davis, Mary Lou Williams, and Billie Holiday. (All were named for Jazz singers.) Her kittens are of weaning age, so she is ready to go to a home all her own! Her coat is a little rough from nursing, but should fill out to a lovely marshmallow poofiness within a few months. If you think she’s pretty now, just wait until then!

Born appx. Spring 2017.

Ella, as a part of her adoption fee, will be spayed and current on her vaccinations. All adoptable cat have been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), given a medicated antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have tested negative for feline leukemia.

Come meet this sweet little crew at the shelter during open hours, no appointment necessary. Hours are M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Call at 507-644-3853 for more information on adopting. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play anyway! The socialization does them good.

Female, domestic longhair, dilute mackerel (striped) tabico.

The Jazz Kittens: Billie Holiday, Mary Lou Williams, and Miles Davis

Three more kittens are looking for homes! These littermates arrived with their mother Ella Fitzgerald, and were all named for Jazz singers. They are friendly and playful, each with gorgeous, bold tabby markings and tuxedo patterns. (Though Miles went and ripped his right tux sleeve off!) Miles is the most outgoing of the bunch, and loves to play. Mary Lou is sweet and curious and a little sassy, though all friendliness and play. Billie is more sensitive and shy than her siblings, but those kinds of kittens tend to bond the most strongly with their families.

Born appx. Sept. 15, 2018.

All the kittens have been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), given a medicated antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have tested negative for feline leukemia. They will have their age appropriate shots as part of the adoption fee, and the eventual spay/neuter when old enough. (You will need to bring them back when old enough to the vet we partner with, Riverside in Redwood Falls.)

Come meet this sweet little crew at the shelter during open hours, no appointment necessary. Hours are M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Call at 507-644-3853 for more information on adopting. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play anyway! The socialization does them good.

Hocus, Pocus, Lydia, Spooky, and Gremlin

Born the day they arrived at the shelter, Oct. 21, 2018.

Around Halloween, a stray young mother cat was found to be giving birth all over someone’s yard. This was no good; so she and her 5 newborn kittens ended up at the shelter. October’s kittens are 5 weeks old now, getting playful and active, and are ready to start receiving visitors. They are all so wonderfully social and friendly! We are also accepting applications for adoption for these sweeties now, but they will not be released to their new homes until they turn 8 weeks old (Dec. 16.)

All the kittens have been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), given a medicated antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have tested negative for feline leukemia. They will have their age appropriate shots as part of the adoption fee, and the eventual spay/neuter when old enough.

Jolly and Ollie

Ollie and Jolly need a new home! They came in together rather scared, but have quickly gotten used to the room full of other friendly, outgoing kittens in which they now live, as well as the visitors who come to play with them all. Both have learned in short order just how much he enjoys being pet. Both will purr so nicely!

Ollie has become more outgoing more quickly than Jolly; he comes right out with the other cats to play and get some pets! I think he is going to become a really chill, cool cat with a little more socialization. Once a cat learns to love petting, there’s no going back! They just get more social from there. (:

Jolly is still a touch more shy, but coming out of his shell so quickly! It might take Jolly a few minutes when a person first comes into the room, but slowly, foot by foot, he will keep planting himself closer to the person in the middle of the room playing with everyone else. Soon, he is within arm reach. The is purring away as he is getting stroked. Oh, he loves it so! With a little more socialization, this is going to be one lubby dubby kitten. <3

We estimate them to have born around the end of July, 2018.

Jolly and Ollie will be neutered shortly. They have been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), given a medicated antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have tested negative for feline leukemia. They will have their age appropriate shots as part of the adoption fee as well.

Come meet these handsome little purr-purr beasts at the shelter during open hours, no appointment necessary. Hours are M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Call at 507-644-3853 for more information on adopting. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play anyway! The socialization does them good.
