Available Cats

HSCI always has a variety of cats looking for their forever home: kittens, adults, short-hair, long-hair, tabby, exotic. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

We update this page often as new cats come in and others go home. Not all available cats are included on our website so we encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  Adoption application process details are included on our Adoption Information page. To see photos of pets that have found new homes, visit the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Cats that have the Very Important Pet! Very Important Pet logo have a reduced fee of $30!  Look for the logo on their files by their kennels.

Cannot adopt any pets at this time?  Consider helping a pet with a Pet Sponsorship!

When we put Hazel into the cage with Darla, she instantly started cleaning her and she watches over Hazel like she is her daughter. They are always laying cuddled with one another and hugging one another. It really is the cutest thing to watch. Darla prefers younger cats over the older ones, but she seems to be a pretty calm cat all around. Darla loves attention and will roll around on the floor in front of you until she gets it.

Boo is a 2½ year old DSH tabby male. Boo is one of the 10 tabbies we took in from the same house very recently. All of these cats are so sweet and just want any and all attention. We are hoping to get some of these tabbies adopted out as we took in so many so quickly to help the community out. Boo is a beautifully marked tabby with a swirl-like pattern. He is a bit scared in new settings but if you just pet him he forgets where he is and starts rolling around and purring. He likes to investigate his surroundings and talk to whoever will listen. Boo will need a forever home that understands the first few days in a new place will make him a little shy and scared but he warms up so quickly that you wont be disappointed.

She is a big fan of the feather or string toys and will chase them for hours. Vera seems to do great with the other cats in the room and should have no problem being a 2nd cat in the home or a single cat in the home. Either way she will be perfectly content.

She will cry for your attention and had the cutest little meow. She loves to sit on your lap and be pet. Tripper will be more of a cat that likes to lounge in a window or on your bed.

Beverly is a 7 year old female calico, who has beautiful markings and who is such a sweet-hearted girl. Beverly was brought to Animal Control from a family that was moving and could no longer have a pet in their new location. They found Beverly as a small kitten outside the Firestone building, right up the street from us, while the person was working late one night. They took Beverly home and loved her dearly.

As Beverly grew older they realized she was hobbling and her back foot never developed properly. They were not sure if it was a deformity or an accident from being outside. None the less they loved and spoiled her and Beverly learned to get around just like any other cat.

Beverly's deformity doesn't seem to bother her at all. We received Beverly from Animal Control when we went to visit to get dogs and we came back with her because she just melted our hearts. She is a calm girl who is looking for a quiet home. Other animals seem to stress her out greatly, especially dogs. So we are needing an adopter that is ok only having her as their sole companion, and a great cuddler she will be!
