13 Cats Who Need Furever Homes
This week's Thursday Thirteen features 13 cats and kittens across the U.S. who need furever homes. June is American Humane's Adopt-a-Cat Month, so if you've be contemplating adding to your current clowder, there's no better time than now.
Elliot and his sister Olivia were found abandoned at 4 weeks old. Left to fend for themselves they would have died. These two sweet kittens were rescued by a SIRA volunteer and taken in by the Crest Hill Cat & Dog clinic for fostering.
Elliot and Olivia are quickly learning what life as a pampered house pet truly is. They have taken very well to littler box training and are little piglets when it comes to meal times. Typical of kittens both are extremely inquisitive and are starting to look to the humans they are surrounded by on a daily basis for companionship and comfort.
Nothing bothers Elliot, he is even comfortable around dogs. Olivia is a little more reserved. They are being fostered in Chicago, IL. Click here for more info.
"Cross Eyed Harry"
PPPPPPPRRRRRRRRRRR I love to snuggle! My name is Harry and I an adorable 7 week old siamese mix who is sweet sweet sweet! My eyes are a little cross eyed which makes it so incredibly cute when I look up at you with my 'please love me mommy' face! Because us little babies really enjoy have friends and get lonely when left alone for too long I would like to go to a home with another kitten or that already has a kitty or a very friendly doggie at home so I can have a friend. My adoption fee is $135 but you get 10% of each adoption if you adopt me with a friend or sibling! I am living in foster care so if you would like to meet me please email or fax an application to the pixie project then we can set up a time to meet - and snuggle.

Ziggy is in the Rochester, NY area, and is a senior cat in need of a loving quiet home. He loves gentle pets on his silky long fur. He purrs when he's brushed out too. Ziggy's been very happy most of his life, until his owners added energetic dogs and children to the household. Now he prefers the serene empty bedroom during the day and only comes down for dinner. Poor Ziggy just wants some quiet calm company. He does play though! He loves to "wrestle" with his brother, chase laser pointers, and pounce on unsuspecting feet under the covers.

Here's Sammy's story:" I need a very special person to adopt me. Someone who cares deeply about cats and believes that each life has worth. You see, my problem is that I can't seem to control myself and I pee all over the floor. Therefore, I need to live outside, so that I won't damage my family's home. The only thing is, there are so many dangers in living outdoors, so it has to be a very special outdoor home. One away from busy streets. One where there aren't free roaming neighborhood dogs. One in which neighbors won't mind an outside cat. And one which has a decent sized yard. I am very affectionate, charming, and entertaining. I am also perfectly healthy. My only issue is that I don't use a litter box. Most folks don't think I'm worth the effort. So I am spending my life in a cage at the shelter. The shelter folks take good care of me and give me attention, but it's still a cage. So here I sit, hoping. And waiting. Longing for the day when that special someone wants to take me to their home and give me a happy life. Won't you find a that warm spot in your heart, and bring me home...please?" Sammy is in Baton Rouge, LA. Click here for more info.
Pancake is a feisty, friendly little guy who loves to play (and play and play!) He's just a kitten, so he can learn to get along with children, dogs, or other cats, and could probably adapt to any family/home. He's neutered, vaccinated and tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. Currently, he can be seen at the Petsmart in Oakley, Ohio (at the corner of Ridge and Alamo). Stop by if you'd like to meet him, or contact Hillary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Click here for more info.

Addie is a purebred British Shorthair. DOB 8/6/02. She has been with her current owners for two months, after spending her first 7+ years of life with her breeder (who dumped her at a local shelter when she was done using her). It has become apparent that Addie would be happiest as an only pet and that is why she is now searching for a new home. Addy bullies one of the other cats in the home, and it happens to be one that can stick up for himself very well. Physically, Addie is a classic British Shorthair. She has a cobby build with a thick blue coat and big round eyes. And like most Brits, she is friendly and social, but on her own terms She is not a lapcat and will let you know with a little swat when she has had enough attention. She follows people from room to room and likes to supervise while being adored and treated like the Princess she thinks she is. Addie is neat and tidy with her litterbox and eating habits. She loves cardboard scratchers, laser pointers, and wand toys. She isn't the most athletic cat in the world, and would do quite well in an apartment. Addie is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, combo tested, and was recently examined by a veterinarian who given her a clean bill of health. Please email email@example.com for an application or more information.Click here for more info.
