Looking for a playful, beautiful, smart kitty? Taco might be your match. We adopted her 4 months ago from a private party, and this little gal is not settling into our home very well. We have a dog that makes her very anxious. And I believe she would thrive in a pet free home. She’s super smart, she has done some fetching in her time with us. And she loves to play! She could probably easily learn some tricks if someone took a little time with her. She is a little over a year old and has all her paperwork. She’s spayed and comes with a really nice cat carrier, litter box, food and a few toys.  503-810-7493

Looking for a cat, you are? Perfect for you, I think I may be. I am Yoda — the wise and adorable! I am a 7-year-old male tabby cat that would love to teach you about life, love, and lap-time! I’m still pretty new here at Pixie, but have quickly shown off my great personality to all the friendly people who come to say hello to me. At 7 years old, I’m still a very active and playful kitty — I even get caught playing by myself when no one is around! Once I’m tired out, I’m ready to lounge — do you like to snuggle at the end of a long day? Do you mind a little guy with big ears like me? I can’t promise to teach you to lift spaceships with your mind, but I can promise to fill your home with love and companionship for many years to come. So far here at Pixie, I’ve shown that I can live peacefully around other cats, and I’m really indifferent to them. I’d probably do best with older kids or in an adult-only home. I’m still learning what it’s like here in Portland and at Pixie, so come by the shelter and help welcome me to the big city! Wait to meet you, I cannot! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Teddy is at 15 year old medium hair cat. She is quiet and affectionate (the only cat I have met who NEVER tires of being petted), purrs readily, has comical quirks, loves to fetch a toy when we hide it for her, and is a wonderful lap kitty/companion. We never had another animal, but understand from Seattle Humane Society (from whom we adopted her in 2010) that she does better in a 1-cat adult home. She is healthy and proper weight for length (10 lb). She takes meds (felimazole) for hyperthyroidism. This is very easy if you crush the pill and mix it with a little Friskies pate and hot water. She thinks it is freshly killed mouse and begs for it. She has had occasional out of litter box incidents, and coughs up a hairball every week or so — mostly she behaves pretty well (if one can speak of behavior with regard to a cat!). We cannot keep her because my wife is finding it increasingly difficult to care for her when I am away, due to my wife’s disabilities.

Please email John at if you are interested in meeting her!

Demetri here — I’m the rolly-poly best friend you’ve been looking for! I am a 6 year old guy who is extremely loving and social with everyone! I’m your typical fat tabby cat and although I went through a lot of transitions with my former owner before he had to re-home me, I’ve been able to handle all the changes in my life with ease and nothing really seems to phase me. I’ve lived in a cattery with other cats before and don’t seem to have a problem with them or with dogs. I love getting petted and having my belly rubbed so I don’t think that rambunctious kids would be a problem for me either. The doctor says I’m over-weight but my recent bloodwork confirmed I don’t have any health issues. I just need to be kept on a healthy and portioned diet in order to make sure I lose weight and stay healthy. I’d say my chubbiness adds to my charm — don’t you think? I’m super excited to meet you, so come on over to Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd and Burnside to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Mufasa (top) and Simba (bottom) are a gorgeous pair of brother cats who are just under 1 year old. They are your typical brothers that play fight, wrestle, chase each other and sometimes get themselves into harmless trouble. These brothers could not be more opposite though. Although they love to play with toy mice and each other, they have very different attitudes towards people. Mufasa is still learning to trust people and enjoys having his own secluded space away from foot traffic and quick movements. Simba really helps Mufasa to feel more confident and they love to snuggle and share their space! Simba also loves to lay on you and expects petting him to be a top priority! He will have conversations with you, play fetch with his favorite mouse when he’s in one of his playful moods, follow you around your home until you stop what you’re doing to pet him, and come to you when he’s called – or hears the treat bag of course. These kitties are a wonderful pair and would probably do best in a home without other pets or children so Mufasa can continue to gain his confidence. This bonded pair loves to lay on a fluffy blanket placed near the windowsill looking outside at all the activity, taking cat naps in the sun and grooming each other. These boys are currently living in a foster home, so fill out an application to meet them today! They come neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped for a combined adoption fee of $180.

Miss Kitty is a full sized, okay, a little chubby, cat.  She’s about 5 years old.  She is brown tabby with white markings.  She’s a real lap lover and can be quite determined that her human lie down and make lap!  She gets along with everybody — cats, dogs, kids, adults.  She used to live with a Lhasa Apso dog.  Very affectionate and likes to be on the bed.  OK, she’s a little spoiled.  But why not?  She’s very soft.   If she’s on the bed and you try to move her suddenly she becomes VERRY heavy! She eats Meow Mix dry cat food from Winco.  But she loves wet food as a treat.  She’s trained to a kitty litter box, we use Arm & Hammer clumping type litter.  Also, about Miss Kitty, she loves to play “String”  (a piece of string or yarn with a wadded up paper or something crinkly tied to it, we drag it down the hallway and they run after it trying to catch it…BIG FUN!!). She is spayed.  She’ll go outside briefly but prefers to be an indoor kitty.  She’s pretty calm, takes it all in stride, and has a few bossy moments.  We love Miss Kitty and think you will too!

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 in a foster for a couple months where my personality really came out and even though I am pretty easy-going, I still have a lot of play in me and will even play all by myself when there’s no one around! I’m pretty indifferent to other animals and could probably live with another mellow cat or dog, but would be just fine as an only cat as well. Are you in need of a lovely lap-warmer? I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and with a recent dental for an adoption fee of $100.

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? I’m currently living in a foster home, so fill out an application to meet me! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.
