Meet the Cats
Marigold, our cafe cat!
Estimated Birthday: July 25, 2016
Favorite Toy: Catnip Banana
Marigold was an exceptionally lucky kitten! Hers was the last litter trapped in 2016; a family sheltering in a barn slated for demolition. Marigold has a ventricular septum defect...a hole in her heart. We are running the gamut of veterinarians to see what we can do to give her the absolute best life possible.
Marigold doesn't act like a cat with a wonky heart...she is full of love and life!
She plays with skitter toys, and loves to play tag with the other cats. She is UNDERFOOT ALL THE TIME. Literally. She will rub her back on the underside of your foot as you try to walk. It is almost as endearing as it is life threatening.
Marigold is currently 3 1/2, and going strong! She is the official cafe cat for the Alley Cat Cafe, and gets almost as much attention as she wants.
We aren't sure what Marigold's future holds, we only know that she will embrace it wholeheartedly.
Tazo is an active boy who loves to climb, chase and jump. He is also extremely mellow. He is fostered with a four year old, and will let a young child do just about this anything to him. He has been known to actually falls asleep in the carrier on the way to the vet. When he was younger he wasn’t much interested in humans but with age he has developed a love of cuddles and has a ready purr. He is very bonded with his brother Stash and we recommend adopting them together. Adorable cuddle naps will ensue.
Stash is an active boy who loves to climb, chase and jump. He’s a bit apprehensive about new humans (except when it comes to play and wrestling, then he is all in.) With the influence of his brother Tazo he is starting to seek out pets a bit more. He and Tazo are very bonded together and we think that Tazo is a good influence on him. We recommend adopting them together.
Adorable cuddle puddles are inevitable!
This sleek and gorgeous calico started life under a trailer, and wasn't sure what to think of people at first. Luckily, she figured out that laps are pretty nice, and stick toys are AMAZING!
This is a kitten who loves to play! She's not the most snuggly lap cat out there, but she loves to play with her person with stick toys, thrown skitter toys, soft catnip toys...she's pretty easily entertained.
Merida is great with other cats, good with respectful dogs, and enjoys children who know that shrieking isn't her favorite thing. (She's more of a celtic folk music sort of girl.) If you're ready to add a little household diety to your life, Merida is ready!
Don’t let this sweet torti fool you with what seems like initial shyness.
She is smart and cautious, but once she enters the fray, she’s always the first one of her siblings to claw the toy into submission. Though her mew is tiny, her inner tiger is large and in charge. At the end of the day, she’s a little snuggle bug, and has such a little expressive face, like her mama. You'll know when she's ready for all the cuddles!
She is sure to make a lovely addition to any family looking for a living room huntress.
Though this sweet orange girl was the littlest of her litter, she has the loudest mew! Tiny but adventurous, she keeps up with her siblings when the game is on. While Carmen is picky about her litter, she’s not picky about her cuddles.
This little girl is sure to mew her way into the heart of her family.
This is Hamilton, and he’s young, scrappy, and hungry and ready for his “shot”! ...A shot at the perfect forever home, that is!
Born in a barn, which is not a situation that promotes longevity, Hamilton is ready for a home he can spend the next 20 years in.
He's a playful little ball of chaos, and lives each moment to the fullest. He chases those skitter toys like he's running out of time, but he'll always make time to snuggle his favorite human.
Make your household proud, and adopt Hamilton today!
On to adventure! At 4 weeks of age, Maui has a tireless love of exploration. He tends to be the first to try anything new but doesn’t really bother to look before he goes off onto the next adventure. He likes to just GO and worry about consequences later. He is rather independent, and prefers to stalk play while his brother Hei Hei loves to climb and pounce and wrestle. When Maui does wrestle his brother, he tends to win!
Maui is pretty fearless when it comes to new experiences, other cats, and the small breed yapperkin he's fostered with.
If you're looking for adventure, he knows the way!
Hei Hei (picture soon!)
Son of Te Fiti, Hei Hei was born in a loving foster home, where he has been cherished since day one. Now that he's up and about in the world, Hei Hei prefers rolling on his back to wrestle with his sister, enjoys cheek rubs, and is very observant of the world around him. He is most likely to start a play session but usually winds up in a prone position. He has the potential to be a very snuggly sweet fellow! He's fostered with a very cheeky small breed dog, and they get along just fine. His foster mom is pretty sure Hei Hei was an opossum in his previous life. This kitten lives to climb and has a significant primordial pouch for just a little bean. Whoever adopts him will want to get ALL the cat trees (the tall kind) and possibly wall shelves, too.
