June is Adopt-a-Cat month: Meet more cats looking for their forever homes

The American Humane Association has designated June as Adopt-a-Cat Month® to help raise awareness for the plight of homeless cats.  June is kitten season, and shelters and rescue groups are overflowing with cute, adorable kittens who are joining the millions of older cats.  There’s something for everyone, and all of these cats are deserving of a loving home.

Earlier this month, I introduced you to some wonderful cats who are looking for homes, and today, you’ll get to meet a few more. Some are local to my area, others are fostered with organizations readers of The Conscious Cat volunteer with. Please share this widely – let’s help find these cats their forever homes!

I’d also love to hear your story if you adopted a cat in June. E-mail me a photo of your new family member, along with a brief description of how you found your new cat and why you picked her, and I’ll feature some of the stories in a future post.

Kitten Associates Mazie

Mazie is being fostered by by Kitten Associates founder Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair fame. Mazie was rescued before her time was up at a high kill shelter. She had just given birth to 3 kittens. Mazie is a little over a year old. She’s basically a big kitten. She’s a love bug, outgoing, chatty and has been a great mom. Her kittens are grown and Mazie’s ready to find her forever family. She’ll hug your head, jump high after toys. She is very playful, with big green eyes and a combination of both spots on her sides and tiger stripes on her legs. Some of her toes are black and some are pink. She’s got so many colors and markings, she’ll amaze you! Mazie’s daughter Polly Picklepuss is also available for adoption.

Maine Coon Rescue Alliance

This beauty named Astra is being fostered by Maine Coon Rescue Alliance in Austin, TX. She is about five years old, and is a very social and sweet cat. She gets along with everyone who comes through the door. She would do fine with small dogs (under 12 pounds) – she loves to play with them. She cannot be placed in a home with large dogs since she was attacked by one when she was young and is abolutely terrified of them. She is a great lap cat and is very affectionate.

Forever Home Feline Ranch

Max is a special needs kitty – he has feline leukemia. He currently lives at Forever Home Feline Ranch in Rochester, IL. He is a very affectionate, playful boy who loves people. Kept in a cage for the last 3+ years, he didn’t get to experience a normal kitty’s life like looking out a window, walking around a house, sitting on a couch, meeting people, pets, loves and cuddles. He can’t wait to see what he was missing and is looking for either a permanent or foster home.

Fancy Cats Rescue Team

These three babies are named Java, Mocha and Kona, and are fostered through Fancy Cats Rescue Team in Herndon, VA. They’re tiny balls of energy who zoom around the room, tumbling and playing. Their antics will keep you amused all day. Java is a boy, and Mocha and Kona are his sisters. Java has little white socks, and the girls are all brown tabby. We don’t know if they are actually related; they came from an overcrowded shelter with some other kittens of roughly the same age. But they’ve been together in their foster home for awhile now, and they all play together wonderfully.

Lost Dog and Cat Rescue

You knew there’d be at least one tortie in this group! Robin is fostered by Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in  Northern Virginia. Robin is  is an outgoing, fun cat who loves everybody. She especially enjoys playing with her sister Jackie. Robin is a spunky kitty who you will fall in love with!

All of these groups have plenty of other beautiful cats looking for homes. If you’re looking for a new feline companion, please visit their websites, and look around.

    They’re all precious. If I could, I would adopt them all. I pray every day for a miracle to happen, that one day I will be able to start a cat sanctuary.
