Kittens and more

Puffin and Klavier are scheduled to be spayed next week and then they'll be ready for new homes! These kittens are well socialized and busy and love to play - they are full of mischief if things ae too quiet at your house!

Their sister, Schnoz, is also ready to go to a new home.

Thelma and JD are teenage kittens and are also looking for new homes. Both of these kids are very busy and very people friendly, JD is the 'lover' of the pair but Thelma likes to be with you too. Both get along very well with another cat and enjoy a playful dog also.

JD is at Chuck and Don's in Highland right now and Thelma was there a week ago but is back in her foster home.

More good news

These 3 kittens (and others from two moms who came to us together) stayed with us for quite awhile before they were adopted last summer. All had had colds they caught from their mom and it took awhile to become healthy.

We were never sure who belonged to whom - the kittens were similar in age and there were many orange ones in the two litters.

Their new names are Oliver, Hazel and Ginger - they were Talbot, Tansy and Teresa.

It's wonderful for all of us to see how well our youngsters and adults grow up, get beautiful coats and are safe from harm.

Ever had this feeling as you waited for the doc to read off the weight on the scale you were on?

(Don't look! I'm going to cover my ears! I don't want to hear the bad news!)

This handsome fellow recently came to Pet Haven, weighing somewhat over 20#. Jumbalaya tried to convince us he was a big boy - he really is! He's long and tall - however, all that extra fat isn't doing him any good!

Jum has accepted his diet well and even has an exercise plan. All 3 members of the family spend individual time with him each day - 10 minutes each. He is enticed with the laser light, with fishing pole toys, with anything to encourage him to move around more AND he loves it.

Jumbalaya had good news at the vet's today - he's lost a little over a pound.

This fellow has lots of personality, he's a lover of people and attention and he likes another cat really well too. He came to us with Shrimp, another brown tabby with white feet, who was formerly known as Didi. He and she snuggle and play but each loves other cats well too.

Further updates to come!

Ms Thelma is welcoming visitors at Chuck and Don's in Highland. She's a very cute orange tabby with white feet, a 'teenager'. She loves to play and gets along well with another cat or dog. Thelma had guests in her foster home a week ago and enjoyed the upper elementary aged children who were there very much.

She's an outgoing and good natured girl, well socialized.

Stop by, take a look - spread the word so Thelma and other Pet Haven cats can find a forever home!

Addie was a shy little girl when she came to Pet Haven - she is still a little girl and she is initially shy but has recently moved to a new foster home because her former foster home is ready to adopt a couple of kittens of their own.

Addie has made great strides in meeting someone new. She has moved much more easily to this foster home (meeting more and more loving humans is good for all of us) and is playing, looking for attention and loves her fishing pole type toys. The ball in the 'ring' isn't bad either. You'll notice she has a bird and critter feeder right outside her window.

She'll take a nap with you, come and stand on your lap and ask for strokes and pats - a very nice lady. She's probably 3 yrs. old and is a short haired brown tabby torti.

Quiet weekend - cats available

Despite having two adoption events this weekend, we only placed one kitten - Ms. Magpie found a new home. She is the first kitten in the litter of 8 that has been so lucky.

Other adults are waiting to be officially adopted by fosters, family members and friends of fosters. Some of those cats have been with Pet Haven quite awhile -

Panda - who likes people really well but can be 'owly' with another feline or dog.

Wyatt was a stray this spring and has fit into the felines in his foster family home so well he found just the right back yard to stop in; Tom was also a stray and Wendy who came from a hoarder house in March.

Wendy has overcome many obstacles and now has a cat to call a 'sister' and another foster in the home. All are getting along just fine, no hissing, just games and grooming.

Summer always seems to be a 'slow' adoption time for Pet Haven and other rescues and humane societies and it is the time we are inundated with the most cats and kittens needing homes. Being foster home based, we can tell you a lot about the behavior of a cat or kitten in one of our homes. If you want one who will mix well with another cat or a dog we probably have the foster home that has a similar combination.

Ms. Tilly's litter:

3 of the kittens have been spayed and neutered and are ready to be adopted - they are:

Eskimo Pie - a female, she has a large white mustache

Smooch - a male with just a tiny white mustache, seen on the right in the photo below

Schnoz - a female with a striking black diamond over her nose who is on the left.

Chickadee is seen in the center, she has been the smallest all along and it is taking her awhile to gain weight and be as active as she should be so she has not been scheduled for surgery yet.

Others in the litter who will be ready for adoption after spay/neuter surgery this week are:



and Klavier.

Eclipse is the largest in the litter and had a cold last week so couldn't be neutered but he'll be perking along soon and ready to find a new home.

There are many more adults and kittens waiting homes - Helen, Ladybug, Riley, Wilma, Carl, Sophia and others.

Contact us and ask questions, someone will get back to you promptly. 952-831-3825 is the voicemail line for Pet Haven. Click here to see pictures and bios of most of our adoptable cats.
