Rescue Me ID: 17-10-16-00168Goofy (female)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello again, Goofy (or sometimes Goofy Girl) here. It hasn't been too long since I first introduced myself after coming to Safe Place for Pets, and I'd like to tell everyone how much has changed since then! The biggest thing is that I'm not hiding anymore. I've moved from one of the upper story kennels down to one one the ground floor so that I can easily come and go as I wish. That is really great, because whenever one of the Safe Place volunteers comes into the room I come out to get some attention and petting. They say that I have blossomed into a sweet, friendly kitty. I was so frightened when I first came to the Welcome Center that no ... (Read More)one realized what a gem I am. They do now! I also like being able to come and go easily because sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by the the other cats and with my kennel on the ground floor it's a snap for me to scuttle back in and take a nap or have a snack. Finally, now that I'm not scared anymore , I can hop up to the top of the kennels whenever I want. It's about 7 feet off the ground and there are several kitty condos up there where I can snuggle up and watch everything that is going on around me. I never would have believed it when I first got here, but the Welcome Center is a pretty neat place to be, especially considering all the loving that I get. It sure beats being alone in my prior mom's house after they took her away! But I'd still rather be in a forever home where I can have that special someone - or a whole family - who I could love and would love me back. Won't you come by the Welcome Center and meet this Goofy Girl? I'm sure you won't regret it. All you have to do is email Safe Place for Pets at info@safeplacepets.org or call 359-0201 to make an appointment. I'd love to see you - and have you see me! Original Bio: Hello there. My name is Goofy, and I'm a 13-year-old female spayed Domestic Shorthair with claws. I'm a pretty little thing with my gray tabby markings separated by large patches of white with a white face and pink nose. I'm a quiet lady and love nothing more than to sit on my mom's lap or sleep next to her in bed. I'm quieter than ever right now because my whole life has been turned upside down and I'm scared and confused by it all. I knew that my prior mom was sick, but then she got really sick and couldn't get up. It was terrible, and before I knew what was happening, men with big boots and coats broke into my house and took Mom away! And then I was alone in the house for weeks. My mom's daughter, who loves me very much, came by to make sure that I had food and water, but I really didn't feel like eating or drinking. I was just too scared and stressed. They tell me that I'm underweight now, and let me tell you, stress and loneliness are no way for a lady to lose weight! Even now that I'm here at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center, I'm still frightened and hide under my prior mom's pillow. I like to be petted, but am too shy to come out to get it. I need a forever home where I can feel safe and loved again. I'm tired of being sad and scared. I told you that my name is Goofy, but I've had several names over the course of my life. My brother, who died a number of years ago, and I came to mom from a friend of hers who found us in a garage that was about to be torn down. She wanted good old-fashioned farm names for us, so she named us Harold and Agatha. Well, Harold eventually became Punk. I became Goose because when I was a kitten I used to like to pounce on my prior mom's daughter's feet, and she called my Silly Goose or Goosey Girl. I was Goose until my Mom went away and the lady from Safe Place for Pets made an appointment for me to go to the vet to get my shots (ycch!) and be checked out. When she made the appointment, the lady at the vet's office misunderstood what she said and wrote my name down as Goof. As it turns out, that was for the best, because there used to be another cat at the Welcome Center named Goose. She was there for a long time before she died of kidney disease, and everyone loved her very, very much. It would have been very hard for them to have a different cat with the same name. So, since Goof sounds a lot like Goose, it seemed like a great idea to call me that, or better yet, Goofy or Goofy Girl. I really don't care what you call me as long as you love me! Won't you please come to the Welcome Center to meet me? You can email Safe Place at info@safeplacepets.org or call (719) 359-0201 to make an appointment to come meet me. I hope you do because I really, really need someone all my own who will cherish me. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    Good companion cat. I want him to go to a good home. We have recently made a few life changes and Cracker has started to have anxiety. With all the changes I just cannot give him the attention that he needs or deserves.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-05-00372Eddie (male)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Greetings, everyone! Eddie and Jesse here to let you know that we have 'broken up' (so to speak). After we settled in at the Welcome Center (where we came to live while waiting for a new forever home since we lost our mom this past spring), we realized that we are no longer a bonded pair. I (Eddie) discovered that I am really a one-cat kind of guy, who wants my person's attention all to myself-I live to be dedicated to her or him and will be a lap cap as soon as that lap is available. And if you have Carl's Jr. chicken strips to eat, please share them with me-they are delicious! I am a 5-year-old, 12-pound, neutered male with shiny black ... (Read More)fur and big gold eyes. I am an indoor-only kitty, who enjoys lying in the sun, playing with orange pipe cleaner circles, and snuggling on a soft blanket when I'm not snuggling with my people. I really like cardboard scratchers, and raisin bran-I would love to share a bowl with you! Let's get together, so we can disprove all those silly black cat superstitions and have a happy life together! *Ask about my reduced adoption donation* Contact Safe Place for Pets on the web (safeplacepets.org) or by phone (719-359-0201)-hope to meet you soon!

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Greetings, everyone! Eddie and Jesse here to let you know that we have 'broken up' (so to speak). After we settled in at the Welcome Center (where we came to live while waiting for a new forever home since we lost our mom this past spring), we realized that we are no longer a bonded pair. And I (Jesse) like a very calm and peaceful space, and I also love to give my person head rubs and soulful looks while I listen intently to whatever he or she is saying, which is music to my ears. And I think I have found my new forever home, too! I am currently 'trying out' living with my cat sister from my prior home, Cathy the Maine Coon mix adopted ... (Read More)this past August, and her new family. Cathy and I were so happy to see each other again, and our mom and dad are the best! I am voting to stay forever'|and I think all 3 of them are, too. Hope I can share great news with you soon, once my adoption is a done deal! I am 8 years old, spayed, and 8.5 pounds, with green eyes that just sparkle against her shiny black fur! Once I get to know you and am confident in my surroundings, I am outgoing and very affectionate. I am an indoor-only kitty, who's favorite lounging pose is on my back with all four paws in the air, basking in a sunny spot, of course. Let's get together, so we can disprove all those silly black cat superstitions and have a happy life together! Contact Safe Place for Pets by email at info@safeplacepets.org or by phone (719-359-0201)-hope to meet you soon! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-04-00548Eric (male)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Not Good with Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! Remember me? I'm Eric, and I'm baaaaack! I thought that I'd found my forever home, but even though my new mom and I loved each other dearly, we just couldn't make it work. We gave it the best we had for several months but eventually had to call it quits. You see, there were dogs involved. And as much as I tried, I just couldn't adjust. And since Safe Place for Pets will always take back an adopted pet if things don't work out, here I am again. For those of you who don't know me, I am a twelve-year-old, mostly gray, male neutered domestic shorthair with claws. Is that a mouthful or what? I am a handsome fellow, so much that ... (Read More)the Safe Place volunteers have always called me the Tom Selleck of Safe Place. But someone mentioned the other day that Sam Elliott might be appropriate as well. ;-) As far as personality is concerned, I am a great guy. My prior mom called me the most affectionate cat that she has ever known. I'm not a huge lap cat, but I like to be close and keep you company, especially if you are trying to work! I like to sit at your feet or on the couch with you if you're watching television or reading, and I would be happy to sleep with you. I used to follow Mom around from room to room, telling her exactly what she should be doing and letting her know if she was doing it wrong. I pay particularly close attention at dinner time. That's an important time of the day! I have to say at I am not always sociable. Like most cats, I'm somewhat independent and like my alone time. But that doesn't mean that I'm less of a pal! Even though this try didn't work, I'd still like to find a forever home of my own. The Safe Place volunteers are happy to see me again, but it's kind of bittersweet because everyone loves me and was really happy that I'd found a home. I think I'd better steer away from dogs from here on out, but I've occasionally taken a young male cat under my wing (so to speak) and become good friends with him. So that may be a possibility. I'd really like it if you would come by the Welcome Center in Manitou Springs and meet me. You can make an appointment either by emailing them at info@safeplacepets.org or calling (79) 359-0201. I'll be waiting! (Less)
