1.15.18 Butterbean (17-277)

Location: Foster Home

Hi, my name is Butterbean but my foster Mom calls me Butterball because I eat everyone’s food. I love treats, naps, my friend Shadow, my brother Casey, and running the stairs at 3 in the morning. I don’t like being touched, being touched, oh and please don’t touch me.

I’m looking for a home — someone who wants to feed me treats and look at me from a couch cushion away. I promise if you need to give me flea meds, or take me to the vet, I’ll only run for about 10 minutes till I get tired and give up… but be quick and fearless with me because I don’t like any nonsense.

Think you can handle me? My foster dad would love a YES … he said I’m turning into “that guy” that sleeps on someone’s couch for his entire life without chipping in on rent. I’ve only been here since July 2017 — geez… he is dramatic!

1 year old – neutered male – FIV+ … for more information on FIV please reach out to us. Butterbean is waiting for a family of his own.

1.15.18 Casey (17-278)

Location: Foster Home

My name is Casey. Butterbean is my brother — most days I’ll claim him.

I am an avid runner, some would say my passion is for sprinting, especially if I hear a can open or a treat bag crinkle. I’ve clocked pretty fast times and taken out a few opponents on my way to see what was being given out. I like to keep an eye on everything so I am usually a creepy distance away from you at all times. My foster mom never stopped trying to pet me so after a year I finally let her if she is sitting down and comes in slow.

I love to eat treats; pretty much any kind. I love them so much I’ll eat them out of your hand if you stay still. You have to trust that I love and appreciate you and not need me to show it to you through touch.

I’m a little bit of a challenge to catch for flea meds and Vet visits, but lucky you, I’m very predictable and end up hiding in the same spot.

1 year old – neutered male – FIV+ … for more information on FIV please reach out to us. Casey is  waiting for a family of his own.

2.25.18 Lincoln (18-053)

Location: Foster Care

Meet Lincoln. Lincoln is still waiting for his forever person, or family, to scoop him up. Lincoln is a special boy. He has a sweet and loving personality with a slight quirk – he bites. He is around 5 years old and a chunky boy with a half tail. He loves to be rubbed on and loves to rub on your legs. He will lick your fingers and knuckles. He truly is a sweetheart who gets overstimulated and shows his excitement by biting. Our hearts are heavy for him because we know how great of a kitty he is but this quirk makes him hard to adopt. The vet says there is not a medical reason he is biting. If you love a sassy sweetheart with a big personality and a lot of love and love bites to give – please consider him. The rescue, including volunteers, just love him. He should not go to a home with small children but can adjust to cats and dogs.

3.8.18 Grayco “Grey Dude” 17-491

Location: Foster Home

Grayco is a 10 yr old very sweet older male! His favorite pastimes are taking long naps in his bed, waiting for you by the door and he’s a huge canned food enthusiast and likes a variety of flavors. He will let you know when he’s hungry by following you and giving you sad eyes. Grayco loves kisses and will head butt you all day long, please don’t let his age fool you! He has a ton of love to give! Grayco does great with other cats and children ages 5 and up.

3.20.18 Jack (Jackson) (17-047)

Location: Foster Home

Jack is an amazing 2 year old boy that is a bit shy and slow to trust people. When you finally do gain his trust he open up like a book. He is a bit flirty and cavalier. He will love on you at times and pull away at others. He loves attention and looks forward to treat time. He loves to play with his kick toys and sounds like a horse running around the room. Jack would love a friendly cat sibling.

4.7.18 Willow (18-063)

Location: Foster care

Willow is a petite little girl with a touch of sass. At 1-2 years old, she weighs in just below 7 lbs. Willow was tossed out on the streets in York city when her owner decided she didn’t want her anymore. With eyes like that, who wouldn’t fall in love? We say she has a ‘touch of sass’ because she occasionally swats/bites if she’s overwhelmed. She is very good at telling you when she’s had enough. Her tail will start to flutter and swish and the rest of her body freezes. Due to her occasional temperament changes, we suggest that she live in a home with no small children. She has done okay with the majority of the cats in her foster home as well as larger dogs that are low-moderate energy. Aside from her occasional quirks, I must say she is an amazing cuddler and lap kitty. She absolutely adores cat beds and will lay in them all day if you let her. She also always comes running when we call her. Willow loves pets and loves to rub all over you. As we head into the dreaded stink bug season, I must also tell you that she’s the most amazing stink bug hunter that I have ever met. Willow would do best in a home with a lot of enrichment toys/climbers/scratchers so she can spread her wings and burn up some of her pent up energy.

5.22.18 AJ (17-359)

Location: Foster Care

The first thing you need to know about AJ is he LOVES other cats. His first instinct with every cat he meets is to run up to him or her and make friends. The second thing you need to know about AJ is he is a little shy around people at first. He has been in foster care for several months now learning how to trust humans, and we think he’s finally ready to get out and find a home. He is super affectionate with his foster family and runs out to greet them when he hears them, but he is unsure of himself in new surroundings. AJ will need someone with the patience to help him adapt to his new home, and who understands that even though he might hide or seem shy at first, his loving personality is worth the wait. AJ is about a year old and would love a home with other cats (although that’s not a requirement). He would not do well with young children or high-energy dogs. Fill out an application to visit him in his foster home.

6.29.18 Lux and Garen (yes, these are two different cats)

Location: Foster Care

Lux and Garen are a bonded pair and must go home together, they are brother and sister. They came to our Shelter about 6 years ago and were adopted together. Unfortunately, their previous owner had to move across country and couldn’t take them with. Lux and Garen are terrified to be in a new place with new people, but they are very slowly warming up to their fosters parents. They love to swarm around for pets and are even playful when they relax a bit. They will be excellent cuddlers once they get to know you and are comfortable in their new surroundings.

Lux is the more outgoing and adventurous of the two. She will be the first to come around. Once Garen sees her getting love and attention though, he’ll be rubbing up against your legs for pets too. They will butt your arm, hand, leg for pets when you stop, because they aren’t done yet.

Do you have patience and a big heart to bring these two lovers into your home? They may do well with other laid back cats or an older dog that isn’t overly hyper. Lux and Garen would probably be fine with younger children, but will definitely hide from loud noises.

7.3.18 LePew (18-143)

Location: Foster care

LePew, Mr love bug, isn’t a “pew” anymore! This 10 year old long haired neutered male is just as sweet as can be. He came to us after being caught in a trap covered in cow manure hence the name “LePew”. He’s been bathed to remove his pew and also had several bad teeth removed to perk up his smile. He’s very talkative,does well walking on harness, and loves head kisses. Unfortunately, shortly after he was cleared to go and went to the store, he suffered a rectal prolapse and had to undergo emergency surgery. LePew has fully recovered now and is looking for a forever home. His new family will need to monitor his stool and be on the look out for possible future prolapses.

7.3.18 Charlie

Location: Cape Horn Pets

Charlie is a beautiful sweet girl about 3-5 years old. She is an angel that just wants to find her forever family.

7.23.18 Nellie

Location: Cape Horn Pets

Nellie is a beautiful 3-5 year old grey tabby with white markings. She is very nervous and confused. Nellie was dumped at a farm and doesn’t understand what is happening. She is friendly but takes some time to warm up to you. She would do best as an only cat but may be okay with an older cat who gives her space. She does not get along with dogs. If you are interested in meeting Nellie, please fill out an application online.

7.23.18 Tyler

Location: Foster Care

Tyler is a sweet, affectionate and very playful little guy. He is about 5months old. He had a rough start at life but has an amazing personality despite that. He would do best with another kitty friend to play with.

Location: Pet Valu South Hanover

Moose is an outgoing boy that loves to play and when he is done will enjoy laying with you. He is a purr machine! His favorite toys are balls.

8.5.18 Ivy (18-285)

Location: Foster Care

Hi! My name is Ivy and I am a beautiful 1 year old female tuxedo. I came to Heavenly Paws at the end of June with my three kittens who have since been adopted. Heavenly Paws helped me get vaccinated and spayed so I can now live a long, happy, and healthy life. I love to be pet on the head and could let you pet me for hours on end. I am obsessed with chasing the laser pointer because it reminds me of my days chasing mice outside. I have been fostered with other cats and small dogs. I enjoy talking to my human and getting lots of morning love.


8.8.18 Dean
Location: Foster Care
Dean is a sweet, outgoing 4 month old boy looking for his forever family! He thought that he might be going home, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. His brothers have all gone home without him and he wants to know when it will be his turn. Dean loves to play with all toys, as well as other cats. He has very high energy! He is extremely curious and inquisitive about everything. This boy will keep you on your toes as he just can’t get enough of people and playing! He’s a little bit rotten, but that’s only because he’s been spoiled!

8.18.18 Melody (15-148)
Location: Foster Care
Melody is a 3 year old white cat with brown tabby markings. This lovely lady was adopted from Heavenly Paws in 2015 at around 8 weeks old. Her “family” recently moved and decided they couldn’t take Melody with them. The first evening we took Melody in, it took around 15 minutes for us to close her carrier as she was so confused and scared she was spit hissing like a feral. The fear of the unknown that she had broke our hearts more than we can explain. The first week was rough. She wouldn’t let us near her, when she finally did she would occasionally hiss and attempt to swat and bite. Her foster Mom has been working to gain her trust and promise her that good people are still in this world and she will never not be loved. She now loves her foster mommy’s attention and rubs her head on her foster mommy’s cheek to show affection.
She meows nonstop for pets and truly wants to be nearby at all times. While we don’t know how she has lived the last 3 years, we do know that in the short time we have had her we can see an amazingly loyal and loving kitty. At this point she needs to go into a home with no other animals, and preferably no small kids. Her encounters with animals in her foster home has been very nerve racking and aggressive and we would not feel comfortable adopting her to a home with other animals at this time.

8.28.18 Willow
Location: Foster Care
Willow is a sweet 3-5 year old girl. She’s super friendly, but wants to be the only pet in the house. Do you need a love bug who will demand all of your attention?

9.8.18 Mittens & Sweetie
Location: Cape Horn Pets
These girls are 1-2 years old and we believe they’re sisters. Mittens has been slowly coming out of her shell and just LOVES to be pet…She’s a polydactyl with extra toes on her front paws that look like…you guessed it–mittens! Sweetie (has a darker face) is still just as affectionate and lovey…She’s a big fan of treats too! While they are both a bit shy and can seem nervous with all the noises in the store, I have NO doubt they will be happy, content kitties after time in their new home. We’d love to see them adopted together as they take great comfort in each other

Location: Pet Valu Shrewsbury

Sweet little Speckles is actually the biggest one of the tabby crew. She is shy and reserved but will come around for attention when it is calm and quiet.
