Dexter
"I’m a social but mischievous little imp. Having a limp has not stopped me from being an active cat. I really love treats and when I am in the mood I love a good cuddle. I’m still very playful and would benefit from a home with lots of toys to entertain me. When I get bored I do find ways to entertain myself but sometimes that can get me in a bit of trouble. If you’re a bit impish like me than we would make the perfect pair!"

Italy
"No need to travel across the Atlantic to experience Italy. Just come check me out today. I’m a peaceful kitty calmly waiting for someone to take me home. Could that someone be you?"

Gardenia
"Please don’t be scared by my rough appearance. When I first got to the ADL I was in bad shape. My fur was really matted so the staff had to shave it. It’s slowly growing back and I am sure that it’ll return to being long, luxurious again. I have struggled with adjusting to shelter living because I really want to be someone’s pet. I am friendly and social but like most cats I do have a sassy side to me. I’d be so happy if you would come make me your pet soon!"

Keisha
"Hi, I’m Keisha! I’m the master of putting on eyeliner! I also am the master of taking naps but really, what cat doesn’t? Overall I’m an easygoing kitty who loves to be petted and receive head rubs. I’m more than ready to move into a home with a nice person who’ll love me forever. Come on over and get to know me better!"

Robbie
"Hello there, I’m Robbie! I’m a sophisticated boy that knows what he wants. I like being around people and I can be affectionate quite often. I do get annoyed by other things that meow because I would like as much attention as I can have. Believe me, when we spend time together it will be love at first sight!"

Dudley
"Some of us kitties just need a little more time to adjust and I’m one of them. When I first came to ADL in February, I was so scared and always hiding. Now that I’m more familiar with this place, I’ve really started to break out of my shell. I can often be found laying in the same cat bed being my lazy self. I let people approach me and don’t run away anymore. I sometimes rub my body on people’s legs too. However, I will admit, I can be a grouch sometimes! Please don’t expect me to always be ready for petting time. I’ll let you pet me when I’m in the mood but I’ll also let you know with a swat of my paw that I’m done with receiving attention. If you’re totally fine with my occasional cattitude moments then please give me the chance to settle in a home with you!"

Cho
"Hi, I’m Cho! Look into my eyes, don’t you think they are beautiful? I hope they convince you to come meet me! I am a quiet kitty who tends to keep to myself in the cattery. I’m not a social butterfly but wish I could be! I’m just shy and will need some time to get to know new people. I hope someone will be willing to give me that chance to get to know them. Will you give me that chance?"

Quiche
"I can be a savory Quiche but I will need to “bake” for a long time in a new home. I’m very bashful and prefer to hide away instead of socializing. So go slow with me and when I say slow I mean that literally. Sudden movements startled me. I just need someone with lots of love and patience to take me home. Is that person you?"

Triscuit
"You’ll probably need to ask the staff where to find me when you visit the cattery because I’m good at hiding. Why do I hide? Well, I’m a shy kitty and this environment is new to me. It’s hard to say why exactly I’m a shy kitty around here but that doesn’t mean that I’ll be the same in a home of my own. All I want is to move into a calm and peaceful home where I can take it easy with my human. If I can be given that chance, I’m sure my true personality will blossom!"

Socks
"Hi, I’m Socks! You can meet me in the phat camp of the cattery! I love to climb around up top and people watch. I’m a friendly gal who is looking for someone who wot’ mind me cat napping a lot. I would love to find a comfy home with someone soon! Please meet me so that we can get to know each other!"
