"Tobie" (October)

"Tobie" (October)

Young Female

Tobie was found wandering the backyard of a City Kittyies supporter.  She was skinny and was getting picked on by some resident cats in the neighborhood.  She moved to foster care and has been doing great.  Tobie's foster mom reports that she loves eating her can of wet Fancy Feast Flaked Tuna every morning and grazes all day on her plate of kibbles.  While she was skinny when she arrived in foster care, she is starting to fill out nicely.

October is a future lap cat who likes to have her belly gently rubbed and has a young playful spirit.  But needs someone who knows how to play gently with her.  October always comes out to greet us when we go into her room to visit her.  She rubs continuously around your legs to get some attention and love.  Then she has trouble deciding whether to get love from you or to get food from you!

'Tobie' is so sweet! She has no issue with anyone trimming her nails.   She calmly sits on her foster mom's lap and acts like nothing is happening to her as she gets her nails trimmed.

Physical Features:  October is a Charcoal tabby with a full 'M' on her head.  She has very unique fur/coat in that her coat is 'down' like and heathered.  October's belly and leg hair have longer light gray hairs like a tortoise cat's hair is.  Her tail is striped and has a dark gray tip at the end.  October's face is very beautiful and has big green eyes.  Her eyes are lined with black markings like she is wearing full eyeliner and then lined again with tan fur making her eyes appear huge and striking.

Other Pets and Children:

'Tobie' has not lived with other cats, but her anxiety at the vet suggests that she may do better in a household WITHOUT other pets.  She would be do better in a house with older children over the age 4 or 5.  She is not aggressive, but sometimes gets 'spooked' by loud noises and sudden movements and living with very young children might be stressful for her. 

 

Tobie is 1-3 year old, spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.

Adopted in 2007

This longhaired classic beauty was a catch, but she didn't like sharing attention with other felines. She languished in foster care for a while before matchmaker City Kitties found the perfect home! Amber now has a house full of kitty lovers to dote on her and attend to her every need. 'Fetch me my catnip, human!'

Chai

Adopted in 2007

Chai was one of Crumpet's beautiful babies born on September 11. This little tabby girl was fiesty and inquisitive. Always in the mood to explore, she was happy running all over the house and climbing human legs--but would soon have to crash for a nap. Chai went to her new home in Roxborough with her sister Biscuit and her new mom and dad.

Garamond

Baby Female

Garamond didn't get such a great start in life.  She and her two littermates (Tahoma and Marlett) were skinny, bedraggled, shy, and missing their mama so much that they were more interested in trying to nurse off human fingers than eating real food.  After spending 3 weeks in the window at Baltimore Pet Shoppe, Garamond met her forever family.  She now lives with her new mom, dad, and two human sisters who love playing with her!

Milo

Young Male

Milo is an all around joy to have in the house.  He enjoys laying around and basking in the sun, cuddling up with you when going to sleep.  He is surprisingly a very sociable cat, although he comes and goes on his own terms.

While he may think he is to old to play with any of his toys, he spends a few hours each night sprinting up and down the stairs preparing for the next Cat Olympics.  Don't ask.  It's what he told us.  He has become King of the Pride, all that the light touches is his and guards us from anything that may be rustling in the dark.  While you will most likely find him relaxing on the arm of his throne or sleeping in a blanket he will surely let you know if he needs something when you disturb him. 

Milo is 1 year old, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.

Seymour

Adult Male

Seymour

Adult Male

He was rescued by City Kitties after his original owners moved and left him behind. He spent time crying outside the house before a neighbor called City Kitties to rescue the young cat. Seymour is a very playful cat who loves to be around people and other cats. Seymour is very curious, and loves to climb and explore. He loves playing fetch, and will bring back anything that he can carry in his mouth. If no one is around to play with Seymour, he will still find a way to entertain himself. He enjoys chasing laser pointers and will climb up walls trying to catch the point.

Seymour will do best with a family that can give him attention. You can expect him to come out of his carrier right away, and will meet you at the door when you arrive home. He is not afraid to cry to get what he wants, and is very vocal with cats and people. He is more comfortable with cats then dogs, however, we are sure he will warm up to any animal in a home. 

Seymour is 1-2 years old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.

Tree Top

Young Male

Tree Top

Young Male

Tree Top is is a young, healthy, neutered male cat looking for a forever home. He is very shy around new people but once he loves you, he is a love bug! He’s a beautiful, vocal, and affectionate boy.

Tree Top may hold the record for the highest cat rescue of all time! On April 7, Tree Rop was chased by dogs up into a tree...40 feet! He was then unable to get down on his own. An arborist rigged a live trap, hoisting it with ropes high up into the tree. After five days, Treetop entered the cage, and he was able to be taken into foster care.

We don’t know his background before he was in the tree but he’s very used to living in a home and should not be an outdoor cat. He seems to like other cats. Tree Top can be shy around new people. He really takes a while to get used to you. So any adopter is going to have to be patient and kind with him and let him come to them. Once he knows that you are his friend, he’ll be yours forever!

Tree Top is under 1 year old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.
