Adoptable 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, so all cats available may not have a photo yet. So we encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  You'll find all you need to know about our adoption application process on our Adoption Information webpage.

And if you want to see photos of the pet that have already found new homes, visit our 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.

Featured Cat!

Feona is a very beautiful cat that almost has an orange tint to her fur. She is a 4 year old grey tiger DSH. When Feona first came in she was very timid and liked to hide under anything in her cage. If she had a bed she was under it at all times. She felt safe there. Throughout the days of being here she now is coming out of her cage and is playing in play groups. She no longer hides and loves attention. She would probably do best in a house without other cats, just because she is a bit more timid and would love all the attention herself.  Very Important Pet!

Laynie is a girl with a calm temperament and loving heart. Laynie loves to be out with the kittens and takes care of them as if they were her own. Her motherly instincts are adorable. She loves to talk to you when you walk in the room and will tell you when she is hungry. She is a docile cat who likes to lounge the day away but does love getting affection as well. Laynie is a 2 year old DSH Torbie.  Very Important Pet!

Ashlyn is a 1 year DSH Tortie female. Ashlyn is a shy quiet girl. New places tend to scare her for a bit until you show her she is safe. But please do not let this shyness deter you away from Miss Ashlyn. You will miss out on a great cat who has endless amounts of love. We are hoping she can go into a home where she will be cuddled and spoiled. Ashlyn does great with other cats and is still very young and full of a playful personality.

Marceline is 8 year old black DSH female. Marceline is a plump. She is a big ball of flubber and we just think she is the cutest thing ever the way she waddles around. We have started her on a diet to lose weight and her new owners will need to do the same. Marceline was the most spoiled of the hoarding cats we brought back if you couldn't tell. This girl is nothing but sweet. She loves to have attention, she greets you when you come in the room. She begs for food, go figure!  And we all just love her.

Eva is a 6 year old DSH tabby female. Eva came into the Shelter in January of 2014. Eva is a very interesting cat. One minute she wants to have your affection and the next she is darting away and wanting to explore the world on her own. Eva loves having your attention but acts a little scared or timid when you try to give it to her. She will purr with excitement however she will let you know when she has had enough. She does not like her belly rubbed and approaching her calmly and slowly is key. For the most part Eva will do what you ask of her, she goes back to her cage to eat when you ask, she will come to you when you ask, and she loves to play with toys. Eva is looking for a more quiet home without other animals that would stress her out.  Very Important Pet!

Annie is hoping she can find a forever home despite her age. She has been waiting for quite some time to be able to give her new forever owner endless amounts of love, and endless nights of chatting.
