name is Big and I think Iím 7 years old. I used to be pretty big
so thatís how I got my name. Iím not the big any more but everyone still
calls me Big.
I used to live in Honduras on an Army post. I was pretty wild and just
roamed the post fighting with any animal I ran across. Mostly I hung out
at this bar with all the Army people. One day I wondered across the
street to a little house where this Captain lived. She knew me from the
bar so she gave me some food. After that I kept coming by, hanging out
with my Captain, and eventually I moved in. One day it was time for my
Captain to return to the States and she said to me, ďBig, Iím getting
you out of here. Youíre coming home with me.Ē Because she kept getting
deployed, she told me I would be living with her parents.
my Captainís parents has been pretty good. But, there are a few problems
that I should mention. When I got to America we learned I have FIV. I
feel great and should live a full happy and healthy life, but that means
I cannot interact with other cats because I could infect them too. Iíve
been an indoor-only cat ever since. This hasnít been too bad except that
my family has dogs Ö and I donít like dogs. At all. So the best my
family could come up with was keeping me in their bedroom, and the dogs
in the main part of the house. After almost 5 years, this living
arrangement has started to get old for everyone. My family and I both
agree it would be better if I could find a loving home without other
pets that stress me out.
I do want
you to know that I adore people and would sit on someoneís lap all day
if theyíd let me. I just donít like other animals. What can I say? We
all have our flaws. So, if there is anyone out there who is a cat person
and is looking for the best TV and reading companion, Iím your guy. Just
contact Stu Pflaum and let him know.
||SPECIAL NEEDS: Meet Beeber!
Someone in my neighborhood contacted me stating they had a cat who had
problems with his eyes, and they needed help. When I arrived and saw his
eyes I knew without a doubt nothing could be done; however, I took him
to the veterinarian who confirmed my fears.
He also tested FIV positive but don't let
this scare you! FIV can only be passed through cat-to cat transmission
usually through a bite wound or a scratch, and Beeber has never bit or
scratched, and occasional transmission at the time of birth. I contacted
the owner to let them know the outcome, and they said they didn't want
him back, so I took him in. He's a wonderful 1-2 year old neutered male
who is up to date on his rabies shot. He sees shadows and does very well
in the home. He is super loving and very friendly. He honestly doesn't
let his vision problem affect his life. His personality shines every day
in how sweet he can be, and he shows how even with a disability you can
persevere and lead a wonderful and happy life!
Please contact Dawna Dove at 540-820-3358
if you are interested in providing Beeber a "fur"ever loving home.

Jack and Diane were abandoned as babies on the side of the
road. One of our doctors rescued them. Jack and Diane are now
approximately 16 weeks old. Both kittens are siblings. They are
spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated. Sadly, when we had them at the
hospital for routine veterinary care, they both tested positive for
This means they must live in a home with no other cats. There is a
slim chance they could develop FIP which is fatal. However, chances are
very, very good they will live a normal life. The virus is not
contagious to any other species but cats.
Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Stafford County, VA, will provide
free veterinary care for a year to anyone who adopts these babies.
These poor babies need someone with a big heart and a loving indoor
home to allow them to have a family for Christmas and for always. There
is no greater calling than saving the lives of two innocent creatures.
Could you be that special person with a huge heart for animals?

Jasper. He is currently 3 months old and was found on a busy freeway
in the middle of the night. He loves to cuddle and take naps. He has a
loud purr and talks back (the good kind). He loves dangling string toys
and rolling toys. Jasper tested positive for FeLV. He injured his leg
when we found him but the xrays confirmed no break or fracture.
Everything looked normal and he is on his way to recovering from a
strain. That doesn't break his spirits of being a happy kitten that
explores his surroundings though. He needs a household preferably with
no other cats. He is up to date on vaccines and needs a caring human to

||Lucas is a beautiful, sweet, mature,
neutered, flamepoint siamese. He is partially incontinent from a tail-pull
injury when he got outside several years ago. He has nerve damage at the
base of his spine. His tail is intact, but he can only lift it partway.
The vet felt leaving his tail intact would be fine, although he can
probably not feel or move the lower 2/3. He has improved a lot since his
initial injury; however, it appears he will never recover full use of his
tail or bladder control. He's a wonderful cat and otherwise is completely
healthy according to tests that were done to check. He is good about
pooping in the litter box. He just pees sometimes in the "wrong"
He's pretty easygoing. He tolerates dogs
and gets along well with most other cats. He loves attention, and he'll
"talk" to you and give you head bumps and "kisses". He
really wants to be outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and roll in the grass.
I'd love to find him a home where he can be safely outdoors either in a
safe yard or a large enclosure. Contact me if you think he's a good fit
for you, and you would truly love and take good care of him for the rest
of his days. I don't want him to be a reclusive barn cat, but a part of a
loving family, which is what he truly loves.
If you are interested in Lucas, email me at
email@example.com . I am in
the Houston area, but willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right
||This is Queenie, a very sweet
girl who has had a rough time. She had a home but her tail was
injured and she suffered nerve damage and her tail had to be amputated.
Unfortunately due to the nerve damage she can no longer empty her
bladder on her own and it needs to be manually expressed every 12 hours.
Sheís such a good girl about it though and doesnít mind one bit and itís
very easy to do.
The nerve damage
has also caused problems with her feeling when she has a bowel movement
and she doesnít always hit the litterbox. Needless to say she
needs a very special home to understand her health needs, but she will
repay you with her sweetness & unconditional love :) She doesnít
mind being around other cats that are calm and respect her space, but
she is very afraid of dogs.
If you would like to have this special
girl in your life or have any questions, please contact Wendy with HART

I've had Greyson two years as a foster in Saint Louis Missouri.
He is an awesome cat and needs a home! He is low key, ADORES laps, and
could probably live with or without other cats. In 2014, when he first
came to me, he had to have a large gash under his arm stitched up due to
a suspected dog attack. Then on Christmas 2015, he somehow injured his
eye which lead to a necessary enucleation of the left eye. He hasn't
missed a beat though and has a loving, "always happy to see you"
attitude! He can be shy at first with strangers but once he knows you,
good luck peeling him off your lap! Contact me if you would like to meet
him! He is listed through St. Louis Pet Rescue. http://stlpetrescue.com/

||Arbie is a special needs kitty
who was rescued as a feral kitten by FURR (Feline Urgent Rescue and
Rehab Waxhaw, NC) along with her mom and two brothers. When she was
trapped she was in bad shape, extremely underweight for her age and
looked like she may or may not make it. After significant vet care, lots
of love and patience, Arbie survived, gained weight and became a real
sweetheart. Unfortunately, when Arbie was going through her routine spay
surgery she crashed and died on the table. The vet in a panic was able
to bring her back but she was without oxygen to her brain for 3-5
After much vet care and lots of love from
FURR, Arbie is now able to function as a normal kitten with the
exception of her being blind. She also has lost her ability to use the
litter box though she does well using training pads. Arbie would do best
as a single kitty in a home that is able to give her lots of love and
attention. She has been spayed, had all of her shots and tested negative
for feline aids, leukemia and heartworm.
If you would like to see how special she
is, please call Terry Schultz for more information at 864-483-2444.

loves dogs. He is an amputee but is high functioning and is incontinent.
He is very sweet and talkitive. Gallihad was found by animal control
after he was hit by a car and was taken to our local animal shelter.
