Hello there! My name is Salem! I acquired this piece of porch/front yard real-estate you see in my picture when my previous owner moved away and forgot to take me with her. I stealthily relocated across the street to the neighbor’s porch, but I am hoping a more secure option opens up.  I am a heart-of-gold senior fellow, who (I don’t like to brag too much, but…) my veterinarian says is in good shape. (This is pretty awesome considering my past as a long-term veteran of fending-for-myself. My veterinarian even found a BB gun pellet embedded near my hip. The stories I could tell…) I am a little worried about having no real shelter from the rain and cold when the weather starts to turn toward fall/winter. Mostly, though, I need some good people of my very own to love. (A family? A single person? A couple?  Roommates?). Despite being what many have called “quite neglected” from my previous person, I am not holding any grudges! I am a peaceful, dignified fellow who just wants what we all want- a secure, welcoming, peaceful place to call home, people (or a person) who I can love, and who will love me back. How good it would be to live out my remaining days in the warmth of a loving home. I have so much love to give. Shall we meet?

**Please only respond if you can provide a stable, secure, loving, peaceful, forever home for Salem. This older gentleman cat has already endured years of severe neglect from a previous owner who ultimately abandoned him, so let’s do all we can to make sure he knows kindness, security and happiness in his final years. Salem is sitting on the neighbor’s front porch right now, hoping for the right people or person to come along and welcome him home.

***Salem previously lived with a dog, so seems to do just fine with cat-friendly dogs.

*If you would like to know more about Salem and/or schedule a meet and greet, please contact L.C.~ (503) 228-5878

My name is Mia, and I’m a precious little 11-year-old de-clawed lady kitty looking for a lap to warm for the rest of my retirement. I’m a very quiet and mellow kitty, and am always welcoming when it comes to attention and pets. I lived most of my life with a very loving human who had to give me up when he got sick, and now I’m ready to find my next best friend to comfort and love. I’m used to being indoors and would make a really great apartment kitty — I’m incredibly gentle and would be a wonderful companion for a quiet single person in need of a companion. I love cuddling on the couch either on my foster dad’s chest, lap, or just next to him. I also thoroughly enjoy chin rubs and brushing, though I don’t seem to shed much. My fur is so soft! I’m a very well behaved little lady and don’t play with curtains or other furniture or jump up on things much. I like to hang out by you and patiently wait for attention, maybe giving a gentle and quiet mew every once in a while. Everyone who meets me is immediately enamored with my gentle demeanor and I’m quick to purr and look up at you with my big eyes, thanking you for your pets and chin scratches. I don’t really have much experience around dogs, but I have lived with another cat before and we did okay together. That being said, I’m perfectly happy being the one-and-only pet in the home and am definitely independent enough to be happy at home while you’re working. Pixie has already run blood work to ensure that I’m in good health and they will also provide a dental for me, so overall I’m a very low-maintenance kitty that will make almost anyone the most wonderful companion. Won’t you come meet me so we can fall in love? I’m currently living in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $80.

I am the stunning Stella Luna! I’m a petite little girl about 1-year-old, and with Halloween right around the corner, I’m just the excitement you’ve been looking for! I’m very playful and outgoing, and love to grab your attention as soon as I see you. I will zip and zoom around the room when I’m in “hunting” mode, chasing toys and having a ball. I’m a snuggler, too, though, and when I’m all tired out, I will happily climb into your lap and purr, purr, purr the day away. I’m not phased by other animals and currently reside in the Pixie cattery with lots of other cats. I will try to get them to play, too! I’d make a great family cat since I’m very gentle and confident around people big and small, so kids don’t bother me. I’d love a home where I can get lots of attention — I’ve got a whole lot of love to give, even though I’m such a small package. I’m used to living indoors and would do fine as an apartment cat, a friend for another doggy or kitty, or your special one-and-only feline friend. I’m a catch! Won’t you come meet me soon? I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Tommy Boy here! I’m an incredibly handsome and entertaining chunky 4-year-old guy that you are sure to fall in love with. I have a big ol’ belly that is perfect for rubbing when you’re feeling blue, and a charming personality you can enjoy the whole day through! I came to Pixie after my former person passed away, but it’s clear there’s not much that phases me as I came in very confident and loving to everyone I met. I’m a gentle guy and do really well around kids and dogs, but am not a fan of other cats. Here at Pixie they have me in my own space, only because I am on a Urinary diet that helps prevent crystals from building up in my urine. As long as I’m on an appropriate diet, I’m a very healthy boy — though maybe on the plump side. I don’t mind if you don’t! More of me to love (and to squish!). I’m used to being indoors and would make a great apartment cat or family cat for someone with a big black kitty-sized whole in their life. Are you looking for a lovable lug like me? Come down to Pixie to meet me soon! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Jacques has lived at the same house for almost 10 years.  He is a short-haired domestic cat.  He is gray with some white markings.  He weighs 11 lbs.  He eats dried food mixed with wet food.  

He was taken in as a stray animal that had been acquired by a veterinarian.  Jacques is well-cared for.  He takes no medications.  He lives indoors but is let out once a day to roam the backyard.  If he’s prevented from going outside, he will spray outside of the litterbox.  I would describe his personality as timid.  He enjoys being held and petted but is wary of toddlers (he likes to watch them from afar).

Billy B. here! I’m a senior guy who’s young at heart, and very eager to entertain! I’m around 13 years old, but that doesn’t slow me down when it comes to being your best friend. I love cheek scratches and head rubs, and I have a very loud purr. If you stop petting me too early, I will politely put his paw on you to ask for more pets. I’m a total lap cat, and always ask to sleep with my foster mom in bed every single night. I will typically always find myself in the same room you are in, letting you know I’ve got your back. Although I’m pretty mellow, I do like to occasionally play with string and feather toys — overall, I’m very chill and low-maintenance and am perfectly happy living with one or two people in an apartment. I came from a home with two other cats and am very comfortable around them, so I wouldn’t mind sharing my space with another mellow kitty like me. When I came to Pixie, they ran bloodwork to make sure I was healthy and found out that I’m a hyperthyroid kitty, which means I need a very affordable medication twice a day to maintain. I’m very good about taking my pill and it’s extremely easy to medicate me. I’m a sweet boy with so much love to give, and I know my perfect family and new best friend is out there! Are you looking for me, too? I’m currently residing in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $80.

Hello my name is Leo! I’m a short-haired black cat born on the Big Island of Hawai’i. I’m 3 years old and I enjoy lounging on a nice couch (or your bed) and playing with my toys. I’m a little shy at first, but warm up quickly. Once I get comfortable around people, I like to hang out and socialize. I’m a big guy, so I like a lot of space to run around in.

I have had a lot of time hanging out with other dogs in the past, as well as kids. Unfortunately, my parents need to move back to Hawai’i, and the space they’re going to is too small for an adventurous boy like myself. I’m looking for a forever home with humans that are loving and kind.

Asking for a small re-homing fee to ensure a good home.

If you’re interested in meeting Leo, please contact Dan at 312-550-4162 or
