Big Kitty came to us 5yrs ago from a brother and sister stating that she had been left at their apartment after her owners moved out. After all of this tim she still does not appear to have settled in, and really only likes spending time with me or outdoors. Big Kitty is approx 8yrs old, domestic long hair grey kitty. She’s very talkative, loves indoors and outdoors, and seemingly prefers to be in a single animal household. She does not our two dogs, and didn’t like the kitten that we had. She’s not aggressive or scratchy/bitey…just avoidant and skiddish and meows/expresses herself loudly when she’s nervous or annoyed. I’ve kept her as long as I have because she and I have a good connection, but she doesn’t like anyone else in the house.
Now we are planning on moving across the country and between the dogs and the long drive, I do not think that she will do well with this transition. I would love to see her in a calm home with someone that loves an opinionated cat where she can live out her older adulthood.

If you are interested in meeting Big Kitty, please email August at augustinvermont@gmail.com!

Dobby is an 8 year old, calico Sphinx. She is pure-bred and extra soft and fuzzy! Some things to know about her; she is extremely cuddly, very talkative, and playful. She loves to sit on your shoulder, almost like a parrot! She is up to date on all of her shots and has had recent dental work done, so her teeth are all nice and taken care of!    A few things to watch out for with her; she is extremely territorial with other cats. She does pretty well with dogs, but she needs to be in an only cat household. She is litter box trained, but when there are other cats involved or her litter box isn’t clean, she tends to have accidents outside of the litter box. Dobby is also a very curious cat, she loves the sunshine and sitting up on window sills, but when coming in and out of the house, she likes to try and make her way outside, which is not an option for hairless cats. She also is very ticklish on her sides and can get a bit defensive if you’re petting her there.

Here are some things you need to keep in mind when adopting a Sphinx because the breed is a bit high maintenance. They need to be given baths once every week and need to have their ears cleaned regularly. They also get cold in the winter time so they need to have blankets they can snuggle in or sweaters they can wear! Which can be super fun and when adopting her, we will be sending her with a couple sweaters we have purchased for her and her own litter box.

 Dobby is a sweet and beautiful cat and we wish that we could keep her. We had to rescue her from a bad situation and we tried to make it work with our two other cats but it has been rough for all of them. Upon adoption, we are looking to recoup some of the dental fees, which means we are looking to charge $200 dollars for her. This number is negotiable, if this seems low to you please keep in mind that the money is not as important as finding the perfect home for her. She deserves a healthy and loving home and we are hoping for the best.
 If you are interested in our little house elf Dobby please feel free to contact us at  aislinngray@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Wendy is a ten-year-old tabby.

Wendy wants to be around people 100% of the time. Her favorite place to be is either on your lap or, when you’re napping, on your chest, nuzzling your face and purring loudly. When your attention is devoted to something else, you can bet that she will try to get into the middle of it. No scrabble board is safe around her! She would thrive best in a home with multiple people to play and cuddle with, or with a person who works from home to keep her company.

Wendy is very playful, and will chase a piece of string endlessly (though she’s not a huge fan of laser pointers, for some reason).   She does have a habit of gently biting when she gets over stimulated; not in a hard way, but almost as if to say “stay here, don’t go anywhere!”.   It doesn’t hurt, but it might startle children.
As much as Wendy loves people, she does not get along well with other cats.   We have tried many different methods to integrate her with other cats in the house with no success.   However, she has lived with large dogs with no issue.
Wendy is very healthy, and is up to date on her vaccinations. She does suffer from hypothyroidism, for which she takes a pill daily, usually hidden in her food.   This medication is quite inexpensive.   She is a big cat, but her vet has assured us that she is not overweight.   Her teeth are in particularly good shape for her age.
Wendy has brightened my life greatly over the past five years, and I wish that I could keep her.   I hope that someone will be able to give her the warm and loving home that she deserves.

Purcy Purr-man here! I’m a striking all-grey 8-year-old man kitty that is lovable as can be! I’m a really friendly and confident guy and am always curious about new people. I’m a sizable kitty which makes me a great snuggle-buddy and I’m a bit lazy which means I don’t need a ton of attention all the time — I’ve got my independent side, which is mostly spent napping the day away while my foster dad is at work. When he comes home, I’m always where he is, wanting to be nearby. At 8 years old, I still very much have a playful side and will gladly be entertained by a good string toy for a bit before naptime creeps up again! I’m used to being an indoor kitty so a good window-sill is plenty enough outdoor experience for me, so I’d make a great apartment cat. People seem to be my favorite, but I’m totally chill around dogs as well and would probably enjoy having a dog buddy to spend my days with as well. I’m really just your classic couch potato kitty with a lot of love to give, and will make an awesome best friend for almost anyone! I’m healthy and hearty and ready to go home — why don’t we meet soon? I’m currently living in a foster home, so  fill out an application to meet me today!  I come you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Silky the stunning Siamese here! I am  a curious and cuddly 9-year-old cat who loves perching in window sills to watch the outside world. I am certainly a thing of wonders — making magical chirping noises particularly when I’m purring on your lap. I’m an obviously beautiful girl with big blue eyes, sleek stripes, and little lynx tufts of hair on my ears. I absolutely love people and I’m always excited to greet new people and say hello, even around big groups of folks. I’m a chatty girl, like many Siamese, and I love to update you on the news of the day. I also love lap time just as much as playtime, and am an overall very affectionate kitty. I’ve lived with another cat before and we do alright, but I certainly wouldn’t mind being your one-and-only kitty! I also seem totally fine — and a little curious, if anything — around dogs. I’d just need a little time to teach them that I was the queen and then we could live happily ever after! Since I’m an older lady, I’d probably be happiest in a home with either no kids or respectful kids who would give me my space when I asked for it. I also am used to having access to the outdoors so would do best in a home either with a nice cattio or a yard/balcony that I can enjoy. Other than that, I’m ready to meet new people and find a family who will adore me as much as I will love them — could that be you? 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 $100.

–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT; THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT HARVEY, PLEASE CONTACT BARBARA AT THE PHONE/EMAIL LISTED BELOW–

Harvey (short for Harvard J. Milk), is one of the sweetest, most loving kitties I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. He is a huge snuggle bunny and was raised with two older feline brothers who both passed away in the last year. He also has two canine sisters and is very affectionate and comfortable around everyone he meets! Unfortunately, my circumstances have changed and my current living situation does not allow me to let him outside. He has been through a lot of transition lately after me losing my former house and he is very stressed in our small residence where I can’t let him roam his usual territory. It is breaking my heart to see him unhappy, and I’d like to find a stable, loving home for him where he can be an indoor-outdoor cat and have lots of attention. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and would do great with children as well as other animals. He’s a gorgeous Flame-point Siamese mix with the cutest freckles on his nose! Harvey is about 4-5 years old and hasn’t had any health issues (although he may be allergic to chicken, so I avoid feeding it to him). He eats a grain-free, poultry-free diet.

If you are interested in meeting Harvey, please contact Barbara at 503-327-3314 or safewarm@aol.com.

Lando & Qi’Ra are an adorable bonded pair   of 5-year-old kitties who are through exploring the galaxy far, far away and can’t wait to find their next permanent landing place. There is nothing they enjoy more than love and attention, and they totally melt as soon as they start getting pets. Little Qi’Ra (grey tuxedo) is calm and purry, and she’s obsessed with cuddling. She would love nothing more than to snuggle all night long! Lando (black tuxedo) is a silly boy who gets so excited for pets that he starts to roll around on the ground and give happy head butts. This sweet pair are super playful and love toys, and they keep each other active and entertained. Their former living situation was a bit chaotic, so they are just a tiny bit shy with new people and situations. However, they have thrived in their foster home and like most kitties, once they’re comfortable they blossom into a sweet and very affectionate pair. These guys have never been outdoors and would definitely be totally happy in an indoor-only setting. Both kitties are healthy and hearty, and very low-maintenance. They would do great in a quiet household and are ready to provide some extra love and cuteness to a lucky person or family! Are you interested in adding these adorable adventurers to your home? They are currently in foster, so  fill out an application to meet them today! They come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $180.
