I am Skittles — the sweet 3-year-old kitty ready to show you all the colors of the rainbow! Even though I’m an all black girl, I have a lot of personality and spunk, so you could say I’m quite colorful in a way. I was adopted from Pixie as a young kitten and brought back after my adopters parted ways and neither were able to care for me any longer. It has taken me a little time to adjust to being back at the shelter — I’m not used to other cats being around and I’m not a fan of them. However, I am a big fan of people and will roll over for you if you give me chin scratches! It will probably take me a little time to adjust to a new home, but I’m not really a shy girl. I just need a little time to build my confidence in a new space, and then I’m all about love, play, and meeting new people! Do you have a kitty-free home that needs a girl like me to sweeten life up? Come meet me at Pixie today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Chloe is quiet, cute, and oh-so soft.  Her world was turned inside out when her owner died and she lost her home.  After lots of rest and relaxation in a foster home (and time under the covers of the bed), she is doing great. She enjoys snuggling in bed in the morning and evening; one little peep “hello” is followed by purrs and kneading.  She also likes lap sitting when her foster mom is in her recliner.  Her favorite “toy” is a throat lozenge wrapped in crinkly paper–it skitters everywhere.

Chloe must have a few canine genes because she does a lot of sniffing when exploring and she comes when you call her name (sort of). She eats/drinks well and has good litter box habits.

Chloe will likely bond strongly with one special person.  She would love a home where her person is kind and gentle and patient as she adjusts to the big changes in her life.

Chloe is currently in foster so fill out an application to meet her today! She is 6 years old and comes to you spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated (and with a recent dental already done) for an adoption fee of $100.

Dobby (tabby) and Pekoe (black) are purebred bonded Scottish Fold males. They are neutered and have been indoors their entire lives.

Dobby is a very special cat. He is 10 years old. He has been such since he was a kitten. He is vey agile and remarkably social.  He will approach anyone and becomes your best friend immediately.  He is very sweet.  He weighs aprox. 8 lbs. and is extremely intelligent.  He will play fetch and listens well.

Pekoe is less social than Dobby but is still very sweet once he gets to know you. He is 8 years old. Pekoe weighs perhaps one pound more than Dobby.  Pekoe is quieter than Dobby and takes almost no care whatsoever.  He is quite content to have a good meal and relax.  He often will sit in the classic Buddha seated position that Folds are noted for. He also is a mooch and will sit up and beg, whereas Dobby not so much so.

If there is one negative here it is that my wife has only feed then a raw diet all of their lives.  They almost never eat dry or canned food.  An expensive way to go, but speaks volumes as to their excellent health. We know that thinking that would continue for them is unrealistic.

Both cats are very quiet.  They make almost no sound, which is typical of Folds.  If they do, it is Dobby who does, especially when crated and taken for a ride in the car. He does not like it and complains, though once on a straight highway will settle down and stay quiet.  Pekoe on the other hand, makes not a sound. All in all they are wonderful pets and we will be broken hearted to give then up before it is their time.  My retirement and us moving to the smaller place just makes the situation difficult.

Hi there! My name is Mona.  I’m a 12 year old sweetheart that loves sitting in laps (especially during Netflix marathons), curling up in a windowsill, and being brushed.   I also love cat nip!

Even though I’m older like one of the Golden Girls, I have a lot of spunk and energy. Plus I’m super healthy, ever since I overcame my weight problem and turned into a fit and trim little gal.

I need a new home because my Mom married someone with a severe kitty allergy and I’m not getting to be the lapcat that I love to be.  I’m quite the extrovert if I’m the only animal in the room and tend to be more of a scaredy cat around other animals.  I’m spayed, litter box trained, and have had my teeth cleaned several times over the past few years.  Mostly, I’m an indoor cat but I do enjoy fresh air and sunshine.

I’m Maxine! When I first went into foster care, I was very shy around people and hid away at the very sight of them. It took awhile for me to understand that humans are actually pretty awesome! Now that I’m more confident and living in the Pixie cattery, I can still be a little shy around new people, but just give me a little time and lots of pets and I will warm up. I need a quiet home where folks are patient and understand how to help me adjust. Once I’m settled in, though, I will reward you with snuggles and purrs, and even help your diet by stealing your pizza (I’m pretty food-motivated and have the belly to prove it)!  I’ve been around a small dog and lots of other cats, and we get along just fine. I actually really love to groom and snuggle with other cats, so would prefer a home with at least one such critter. I’m also a champ at using the litter box and scratching post, and love chasing dangly toys. I have no interest in being outside but do like to watch birds and other entertainment from the windows. I’m really a sweet girl that just needs a gentle touch (and a fluffy blanket or stuffed toy on which to “make biscuits” — I am sooooo cute when I do that)! Are you looking for a loving kitty like me to add to your family? Come down to Pixie to meet me today! I am about 2 years old and come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.

Hi, I’m Sappho!  I am a sweet, loving girl of 4 years.  I am spayed and have all my vaccinations.  I enjoy playing with balls and carrying around stray socks in my mouth.  I love having my head scratched and have the purrs to show it!  I also like the outdoors and am very fast!  I may even bring you a catch!  I am a little skittish and startled by loud noises, so I like a quiet place where I can hide.  I would be happiest in an adult only home with no other pets but a nice kitty companion might be ok, too!  If you’re interested in meeting me, please contact Willow at:

My name is Callie and I am a beautiful and mellow 7-year-old tortoiseshell lady with the most lovey-dovey personality! Do you like to lounge around like a couch potato? I think we’d get along purrfectly — all I want is to be held and brushed all day long. I will purr and drool any time people stop by to give me pets and scratches, and I also just love hugs. I could sit in your lap forever! I was a little stressed by the other cats in the cattery, so I’m not sure how I’d feel about a feline companion. However, I just adore people and know that you and I will fall in love.  I’m currently living in a foster home where I can get the one-on-one attention I live for. Are you in need a lovely lap-warmer? Fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and with a recent dental for an adoption fee of $100.

Meu Meu is my name — and love is my game! I’m a very talkative and affectionate 6-year-old gorgeous girl with medium-length luxurious fur and a big personality. I am still a very playful and energetic cat and I also love to watch the birds in the window and chirp at them. Did I mention I like conversation with people, too? I will happily meow at you for attention and will crawl into your lap when I’m in the mood. Though I’m a big fan of people, I’m not a big fan of other cats and will probably be happiest as an only kitty. I’m a lot of cat personality packed in a little fluffy package, so you won’t miss having other cats around with me in your life! Are you interested in meeting a princess like me? Come down to Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside and say hello! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.
