Rescue Me ID: 18-06-13-00238Snickers (female)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    What is better than one cat? A bonded pair, which describes the 2 of us-Cinder and Snickers! I am Snickers, a 12-year-old calico who is spayed, 16 pounds, and who needs lots of time to feel comfortable with new people and new settings. I have my claws, but hide rather than use them when I am afraid. My bonded brother Cinder, is a very handsome black boy with gold eyes. He is 15 years old, neutered, indoor only, with my claws, and weighs 12 pounds. Cinder is initially very shy, but gets his bearings quickly to enjoy his surroundings and people company. We have both been with our mom since we were kittens, and we are now boarding at the Safe ... (Read More)Place for Pets Welcome Center. We recently lost our mom, and her family members were not able to keep us since they are animal lovers (just like our mom) with already full houses of pets. Her daughters did the next best thing and brought us here to live until our new forever family finds us. In our prior home we enjoyed being held and sitting in a warm lap. We have no experience with dogs or cats other than each other. We will be a great addition to a family who knows how to be patient to give Snickers, especially, the time to really settle in to become the affectionate companion she used to be before our world was turned upside-down. Cinder will be your pal quickly, and soon enough, I have no doubt that you will have 2 cat pals. You can find out more about us and come to meet us by filling out the inquiry form below, calling Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201, or send an email to info@safeplacepets.org. We'd both love to meet you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-13-00196Meow-Meow (female)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, everyone! This is Meow-Meow-guess how I got my name! I LOVE to talk and have so many stories to tell you when you are in the mood to listen. I also enjoy quiet time and just being close to my people. I am a recent arrival at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center, since I lost my mom and my grandfather was not able to keep me. I am a healthy 7-year-old, spayed, 16-pound tortoise (or maybe calico, since I have dabs of white in my fur), who has adapted very well as an indoor-only cat, especially since I get to be where the people are! Dogs are OK, but I have no use for other cats--doesn't that sound just like a calico?! I am also very ... (Read More)good with children. Come to meet me (and adopt me'|hint, hint)-all you have to do is say 'Hi' to me and you will have my undivided attention. Inquire about me by email at info@safeplacepets.org. or call 719-359-0201. Hope to meet you soon! (Less)

Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Owner has developed severe allergies and is no longer able to care for this sweet girl. She is approximately 5 years old. She has been around small dogs, a toddler and rabbit. She warms up to men faster than women but is overall a very loving kitty. She is used to being an indoor/outdoor kitty her entire life and would be classified as 'independent' for personality.

    Dany (short for Daenerys) is very social, very active, and is good around dogs and children. I believe she could be introduced to a cat in a new home, but she has not lived with one yet. She is a wonderful cat! She is current on her vaccines and is microchipped. Records available on request.

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-12-00406Oscar (male)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, everyone! My name is Oscar and I would like to introduce myself. I am a very handsome all-gray, neutered cat, with gold eyes, and I weigh about 12 pounds. I just arrived at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. Even though it is comfortable, and the room service and housekeeping staff (aka cattery volunteer team) is great, my being here means that I need a new furever home. I sadly lost my dad last fall, and his daughter and son-in-law were not able to keep me because of the daughter's cat allergy. All of us were very disappointed, but they did the next best thing to help me find that new special someone by bringing me here. When ... (Read More)my dad and I were still together, I enjoyed being outside during the day and visiting with the neighbors. I always came inside at night and really loved just being close to my dad and sitting in his lap as much as possible. I am a very playful guy, even for a 13-year-old, and really get excited about chasing strings, shoelaces, and cords'|look out if you have drawstring cords on a sweatshirt hood! At the end of the day, I liked to sleep curled up on the bed close to my dad. Since my dad has passed away, I have adjusted quite well to being indoor-only. If there is a window to sit in to watch the world, I'm good. Since I tend to be shy and wary in new situations, I am taking my time settling in at the Welcome Center. So far, I am doing OK with the other cats living there, and I have not had to use my claws or growl vigorously at them, but I have uttered a low rumble to let them know that I am not so sure about them just yet. The cattery volunteers are very nice, and I am looking forward to getting to know them and enjoying their attention. An even better option is to meet you to see if we might be a good fit for each other. You can visit me by calling Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or submitting a pet inquiry at www.safeplacepets.org. I hope to see you soon! (Less)

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

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ** Ask About My Special Adoption Donation ** 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 ... (Read More)when I first came to the Welcome Center that no 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)
