Hello! My name is Benjamin and I am a sweet 3 year old Chihuahua/ Pug mix weighing just at around 10 lbs. I am looking for a nice quiet adult only foster home to settle into while I search for my forever home. I am a great little walker and really look forward to my daily walks with the volunteers. I have met some doggy pals while here at Pixie and do best with mellow friends who just like to hang or cuddle. I am a snuggler all the way and am happy to sit on the couch with you while we watch some movie marathons! Please email Pixie at info@pixieproject.org if you are interested in giving me some rest and relaxation while awaiting my forever family! 🙂

I’m Tuffy, the totally adorable 11-year-old lady cat that enjoys sunrays, window-gazing and lounging in laps, soaking up the love and warmth of my human! I’m a little, light lady with big beautiful eyes and tuffs of longer hair around my ears giving me a very striking appearance — hence my name! You might think I look a bit wild, but in reality I’m a pretty mellow kitty that is adorable, soft, and affectionate. I’ve gone through a couple of changes in the past couple of years, being bounced around a bit, so while I am definitely a kitty who seeks attention and loves to sleep on you and rub my face against you, sometimes I am a bit independent and will do my own thing and will tend to let you know when I’m feeling social. This makes me a perfect fit for someone who works regular hours and is looking for a kitty who a perfect mix of friendly and confident on her own as well. I’m mostly pretty low-key, but like any cat will definitely get the occasional zoomies and can get into playtime especially with a dangly toy or catnip banana (who doesn’t love catnip?). It’s pretty cute when I get going! My foster mom says I’m a polite kitty who uses my designated scratching boxes and will sit quietly by the table when I’m hoping for an extra snack. Though I am a gentle cat and never hiss or scratch, sometimes I am still a little bit tentative about being approached and am not a huge fan of being picked up yet, so an adult-only home would probably be ideal for me while I continue to re-build my confidence. I do have kitty asthma that is managed with a steroid medication that I take as-needed, usually every other day or so. Pixie has provided a dental and blood work for me, so I am otherwise healthy at this time. I’m very excited to meet my forever person and become someone’s best friend! Do you think I might be what you’ve been looking for? I’m currently in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped (and with recent dental and blood work already done!) for an adoption fee of $80.

Grape (brown tabby with white face and bib) and her son Vino are two chunky, lovey dovey, cuddly older cats that can’t wait to find their way into the hearts and home of their new family! These delectable kitties adore one another and are often found together snuggling and using each other as pillows — it’s too cute! They both LOVE cheek scratches, and Vino, the younger kitty around 11 years old, absolutely welcomes scratches and pets of all kinds. His mother Grape — a mature fruit of aged around 12-years — is a little more dignified and will have more opinions about where she’d like to be touched, but is also very sweet and gentle about communicating when she’s had enough. Vino will never say no to pets of any kind. In fact, he’ll actually stretch his paw out to try to stop you from leaving if you just give him one pet/scratch and don’t stay for more. They love to curl up next to their foster mom on the couch, or nearby wherever she is, though they are big kitties and don’t often crawl all the way into her lap. Though they are both generally very polite and quiet house guests, they are also still quite playful — especially young Vino! These kitties are used to a quieter environment and would love an adult-only home since they can be just a tad shy after losing the only home they’ve known. Both kitties are totally undisturbed by their foster parent’s dog and seem like they’d do great with a calm canine in the household. They are perfectly happy living entirely indoors, and do not need a ton of space to move around, so apartment life would be just fine. Both are healthy and have no special needs at this time, other than needing each other! They are extremely bonded and will definitely need to go to a home together. Don’t you think they’re just divine? They are currently residing in a foster home, so fill out an application to meet them today! They come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $164.00.

I adopted Oscar from a rescue in early 2013 when he was 12 weeks old in Houston, Texas. He’s an early October 2012 birthday, almost 7 years old.  So far he’s lived in 4 states. He is a really sweet cat but unfortunately him and my female cat no longer get along. However, he gets along very well with my little orange male cat. He needs a loving home with people that will give him lots of attention and that not mind playing fetch and giving lots of belly rubs. He might do well with another cat that is docile and introduced slowly. But preferably a home with no other cats at this point.  He’s tolerant of my 3 year old son but avoids him, never mean or aggressive just runs away if he thinks he is going to get chased.  He does well with my parents dog who is about the same size as him, I’m not sure how he’d do with a large dog.  He is slow to warm up to other animals in general.  He is very affectionate and talkative with people.  He’s not much of a lap cat but will occasionally want some love.  He loves to rub on your legs and ask for head scratches.  He is an indoor cat but likes supervised time outside.  He also likes to be in the garage with food and a liter box.  At this point, he sleeps in the garage with a bed and enjoys it.  He wouldn’t do well as an outdoor cat as he’s not “street smart” and is pretty skittish about loud sounds and unfamiliar things.   He boards well at the kennel now that he’s used to it when I’m out of town and he travels well in a car. He is such a sweet, loving boy and a great pet.  I’d like to see him in a home with a family not planning to have kids or the kids they have are 10+ years old. He is a bit of an attention seeker so he’d be best as an only pet.  He’s up to date on all shots (every January for check up and shots) I have all records.  

If you’re interested or would like to meet him please email Taryn.speer9112@gmail.com

Linda is an absolutely amazing cattery volunteer who’s been with Pixie for more than FIVE years. She comes at least one (but usually two) mornings a week, every week, to clean up after and care for all the kitties in the building. She has also fostered and adopted cats from us, uses her years of service industry experience to help us at our huge annual fundraiser, and is a wonderful, sweet person that lights up the shelter and makes everyone smile whenever she’s here! She’s an absolute doll with all of the cats and definitely provides a ton of comfort to each and every one. Last year, she was the recipient of our Cattery Award and she deserves to be recognized for her amazing work. Thank you, Linda!

Stunning, charismatic and classy — that’s me, Cassie! I’m an absolutely beautiful 7-year-old red and silver tabby kitty that is ready for cuddles! When I first got to Pixie, I was a little over-whelmed since I’d only ever lived with a single man who sadly passed away. I’ve only been here for a couple of weeks, and I’ve already opened up and am absolutely in love with receiving as much attention as I can get! Even though I’m a bigger gal, I don’t mind being picked up and held. I’m great with kids, though would probably prefer a relatively mellow home since that is what I was used to. I can even start to get playful when I’m in the mood! I’m a very quiet kitty that doesn’t meow much at all and that is also very tidy and low-maintenance. I’d adore a home where I could get lots of cuddles, but at my age I’m also independent enough that I can lounge around and keep myself occupied while you’re at work all day. I’m used to being indoors all the time and wouldn’t mind apartment life at all. Everyone who meets me just falls in love right away, and I know you will, too! Won’t you come by Pixie and say hello? I can’t wait to meet you! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Chloe is an 8.5 year old tabby who has a very sweet and mellow disposition. If she had her way, she’d snuggle all day. Great with children. She has lived with our family her whole life and has had great medical care, and is chipped. She loves going outside and sitting in the sun and is also happy inside. 

We have an allergy in the family and need to find her a loving home!
Please let me know if you’d like more information! Hillarydaypdx@gmail.com

Smooth, silky, and incredibly becoming — I am Velvet, the 14-year-old gentleman of your dreams that is pure magic. I’m a majestic older man that loves to just lounge around and grab your attention as soon you walk into the room with my cool, calm and collected nature and male-lion-looks. After we become acquainted, I will welcome lots of petting  I’m totally un-phased by other animals and am incredibly gentle, even when little kids want to pick me up or young, active kitties want to get in my face, I’m cool with all that. I have a silly sounding, higher pitched meow that doesn’t really match my very manly and regal look, but it is sure to make you smile! There’s not much about me that won’t make you smile, in fact, and everyone who meets me is enamored almost immediately. I’m a very low-maintenance kitty that is very healthy for my age. I’m in early stage kidney disease, so I eat a prescription diet to help me stay healthy for as long as possible, but I really enjoy the food and am not on any medications at this time — I’m not picky, either! You just put the food in front of me, and I’m a happy guy. Are you looking for a smooth, velvety couch-potato kitty to complete your life? I hope you will stop by soon so we can get acquainted! I’m currently residing in the Pixie cattery and come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped (with recent blood work and a dental included) for an adoption fee of $80.
