As a no-kill shelter, we specialize in helping cats that would typically get euthanized in other shelters. We are proud to help all of the cats that wouldn’t have a chance otherwise. Unfortunately, they tend to come with large vet bills or specific medical requirements to help them live happy lives in their foster homes for long periods of time.
Below are listed some of our long-term fosters and their specific needs. These cats are not currently available for adoption and may live the remainder of theirs lives in our care. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these kitties, please take a look at our donation page for more information.
Lester was adopted and returned 3 times for peeing in the house. He currently is enjoying life as an indoor/outdoor cat at a foster home. When it is nice out, he doesn’t want to come in. When it is freezing cold, he decides to come in and immediately pees on the floor! Other than his potty issues, Lester is an exceptionally sweet boy.
When he originally came to us, we believe that his had been hit by a car. He was missing teeth on the left side of his mouth and had to have surgery to have a pin put in his knee cap. We have tried everything to correct his potty issues, but anytime he is inside he backs up against the wall and sprays.
Since Lester is unadoptable, he will be safely cared for as an indoor/outdoor cat with Heavenly Paws.
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 rub on your legs, but doesn’t want to be touched. He will lick your fingers and knuckles. He truly is a sweetheart who gets overstimulated due to pain 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 that his tail was previously broken and is compressed at the base of his spine which is what is causing him pain. The rescue, including volunteers, just love him.
Pusser is quite an odd ball but also a fun kitty who is 2 years and 5 months old (as of 5/2022). He loves to be with people and play with them BUT he’s not ready to be held or touched a ton. He needs an understanding person who will respect his limits and work with him. At times he loves his head and neck rubbed. If you want a fun companion he’s the one. Pusser does have a sweet side and loves to lay in bed with his humans. I would not recommend him for young children. He’s currently fostered in a home with a dog cats and a 10 and 13 year old child. The children have grown up fostering cats so they love him because They understand that every kid is different. They also know where his limits are. He has made progress in his foster home and loves to play with his foster’s children.
20-269 Miss Kitty Is a very pretty girl with a black body and white whiskers that stand out. However she does not like to be touched. She loves to be around people and gets excited for treats and food. She will even lay at your feet. But go to touch her and you’ll get smacked. If you keep pushing it you’ll get bit. I have tried to make her an outside cat three times but she sits at my door and cries for hours.
(Updated 5/28/22) Meet Millie, a very sweet, affectionate senior kitty. She’s at least 10 years old but still full of energy. Unfortunately her owners moved and left her behind but she doesn’t hold that against anyone as she’s a real people cat. She has a thyroid condition which requires daily meds but she takes them like a champ crushed up in her food. Her condition is very common with older cats. She loves her humans and talking to them. She now had kidney disease and is strictly on a special diet.
(As of 7/14/2022) Luke “Mr. Kitty” is an advanced age senior. He was found in the middle of the road. He has cataracts and is having surgery for entropic eyelids (the eyelids fold into the eye causing irritation). Luke had dental surgery on 07/13/2022 and had 6 teeth removed but he’s still as sweet as can be. He also had bloodwork and x-rays done which came back normal. Luke is blind and deaf but the sweetest fluff ball you’d ever meet.
Old Man!!!! Super sweet 12-15 year old boy. He loves to snuggle! This sweet boy has no teeth due to stomatitis and requires a canned food diet.
Buddha, 13 year old Red Mitted Ragdoll. Buddha lost his home when his owner died. His current foster home is his 5th home. Don’t let looks fool you, while he’s gorgeous he is not outwardly social and prefers to sleep most of the day. He does let his servants know when he needs something.
Winston, 10 plus year old male. Winston was sadly returned as he is very shy. He’s been in foster several months and still hasn’t warmed up to his foster family but is slowly getting there.
