The Animal Defense League of Texas, a no-kill shelter located 11300 Nacogdoches Road, has several cats that are currently looking for a forever home. Check out the cats that are currently available and just try saying no to adopting one of these cuties. It's basically impossible.

Josie
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”

Kismet
"I am a delightful young man. I am obedient and walk well on a leash, plus I know several commands. I can sit, shake, and lay down but maybe not all at once. I love treats so it would be easy peasy to train me some more. The best thing of all about me, though, is I have the biggest smile in the whole place. I like to play rough so please ask the staff for more information about how I would be with kids and other animals. Don’t you think it is fate that we should meet?”

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?"

Jethro
"I am one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet! My hobbies include going on short walks around the block, sleeping for many many hours because who doesn’t love sleeping, getting belly rubs which I love sooooo much and showing my love and affection. I would love to make one of my hobbies to love my forever family!"

Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"

Jewel
"Just like the singer Jewel, I’ll sing this lyric to you, “I know that you love me and soon you will see, you were meant for me and I was meant for you.” Okay so you won’t actually hear me singing that song but please know that I’ll have those exact thoughts when I meet you. I generally feel that way towards most people because I love everyone and I’m confident you’ll love me right back! I’m a very laid-back type of gal who enjoys sun bathing and relaxing. I’m always happy to receive neck rubs and will happily purr when you shower me with attention.  Please give me the chance to find out if you’re meant to be the best friend for me!"

Missy
"Hello, hello, hello, hello! I’m Missy, the best gal you will ever meet. I am so excited to get to meet you and I will be even more excited if I get to see you in person near me! I am a very jolly and playful gal who loves to be goofy and always wants to have everyone smiling. We should definitely meet right now! Can’t wait till we hang around the doggie park and become a forever family."

Marble
"Don’t let the gray muzzle fool you. You know what they say – 50 is the new 30. I’m 49 in dog years (if you believe that stuff), so I’m quite the young lady! It’s right there on my sign: “Still has plenty of energy.” If you don’t believe it, take me for a walk. I’m not so ill-mannered that I would pull you. I seem to have been properly raised: I am leash-trained, of course, and I am gentle and even-tempered. Just please don’t call me old. I’d much rather be called your dog."

Señor
"Hola, me llamo Señor! It’s great to see you and hopefully be able to meet you. I am as lucky as they come; before I came into ADL I had the roughest time out on my own. I was surprised at how bad I was; I was told that I had been struggling with severe dermatitis, ear mites, and hair loss from sarcoptic mange. I know sounds horrible right! Well on top of all that, I was told, I had entropion which is a condition where my eyelids fold inwards causing me great discomfort. And as one condition kept coming after another I was also told that I had been diagnosed with FIV. As you might imagine, when I came in, I was quite the grumpy whiskers especially since I could barely see the humans around me! But now, I am soooooo much better and I feel soooo happy! Estoy muy muy muy feliz! I really would love to put all this crazy past experience behind me and find a forever home where I can find a forever family to love me and enjoy all my antics and my Spanish. I do have to go with another furry friend that either has FIV or would have to be an only cat. We should get to know each other better so we can learn all about one another!"

Lyric
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”
