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!

Bella is a 5 year old, long-haired female tabby. This is one beautiful cat with bright green eyes and the long fur hair between her toes. She is such a doll. She may seem scared in new surroundings but she really warms up in no time and has so much to say to you and tell you about. She often visits the manager's office if you let her out of her cage and will just sit on the keyboard demanding attention and allowing no work to be done. If you are looking for a love-bug who wants to cuddle then look no further, Bella is your girl.

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 5 year old DSH Torbie.  Very Important Pet!

Tucker is a 3 year old male, short-haired buff and white cat. Tucker is a big baby. Loud noises and fast movements scare him. He wants to be held all day long and cuddle with you. He is definitely a submissive cat in terms of other cats. He lets them know he is a big baby. Tucker does great with other cats but really just keeps to himself. You can find him perched high in a comfortable bed, or basking in the sun.

Daisy is a 2 year old DSH Torti female. Daisy is a bit shy at first. She is always cute and quiet. When you give her attention, that is when she lights up and shows you her adorable, cuddly personality. You have to come to her to see it though. She loves your attention and loves to give kisses. She will roll on the floor in front of you and let you rub her belly. She will sit on your lap and relax the day away with you. Daisy is content in her own world by herself but she really lights up when you interact with her.

Simple Simon loves to be held and will cuddle, but he is a very active little kitten.

Callie is a 7 year old female DSH calico. Talk about a beautiful cat. With her beautiful markings and piercing eyes it is very hard to forget Miss Callie. Callie can be shy with new people but warms up fast once she gets to know you. She loves attention once she knows you and loves to have her back scratched. Callie is a social eater, she likes to eat while you are giving her attention. It is quite funny. Callie will need an owner who understand she isn't the most playful cat, but is so very sweet.

He is a cat that likes to lounge and loves to sit in front of a window to sit in the warmth of the sun's rays. Mellow and huggable, buddy is more of a teddy bear. Buddy is looking for his forever home and hopes you come find him.

Diane is a 2 year old DSH Orange tabby. She has very distinctive stripes and a very distinctive almost Egyptian look to her. She is a petite cat with long features. She really is a beautiful girl. If her look wasn’t enough to get your attention then her personality will. You will most likely find her being a turtle, hiding under a bed or blanket. She loves to be hidden when she sleeps. However the minute you start petting her she is purring and rolling around in front of you begging for more attention. This is a very fun girl with a lot of love to give someone.

Tripper is a 3 year old DSH black and white female. Tripper will need to be the only cat in her home as she does not get along with other cats in the room. She however, loves any and all people. 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. When we got tripper in the shelter she was matted so bad, from lack of being cared for and groomed, that we had to completely shave her back. Her hair is finally growing back and she is back to her pretty self.

Samarra is a 4 year old DSH grey female cat. She is a super sleek, slender looking girl with a very distinctive face. Samarra loves some cats and doesn’t get along with others, so in cat language we say she chooses who she likes. Samarra is a picky girl but is very personable. She loves to be pet and brushed. She loves attention but also is content being independent. If you are looking for a cat that doesn’t constantly need your attention but also has a lot of affection to give, then look no further. Samarra is the girl for you.

She loves to look out the window and lay in the sun's rays. She spends a lot of time watching the birds outside the window and she seems to do great with other cats.
