LOCATION OF PET: This cat is physically located in central Arkansas. We routinely send cats to the Northeast (except MA) via a professional, licensed pet transport company for an additional $75-$140 transport fee. "She is one tough chic" exclaimed the vet upon initially examing Grandma Freida after being found starving in south-central Conway, AR. She was trying to eat an outdoor cat's food with a mis-aligned, "healed" broken jaw. She appeared to have been hit by a car at least six months prior to being found. She has a broken canine and other teeth. She had obvously been someone's cared-for and loved cat - she had been spayed and de-clawed on the front paws. Efforts to find her owners failed. How she made it on her own on the edge of town - not being able to hunt, or protect herself from dogs, raccoons, and coyotes - is remarkable.She always uses the litter box. She has been tested negative for diabetes, and negative-negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. Freida is alert and spry for her age, never hesitating to ask for food when her internal dinner bell rings. She purrs and rubs when given the chance to be stroked and held by a human. As is the case with some de-clawings, this cruel mutilation operation long ago is now taking its toll on Freida. She sits and walks with her weight shifted back on her haunches, and sometimes sits holding up one front paw or the other, as if to indicate it hurts her feet to bear weight due to the amputated toes. Don't be mistaken, though. She gets around! Crack open a can of cat food and she magically appears beside her food bowl. And any kitten or king cat that comes sniffing at her food, or pokes its head into her sleeping territory will be swiftly dispatched with a hiss and sometimes a swat. Freida will make an excellent, calm and serene senior cat best friend for the right single, couple, or family without other pets. She would be a good cat for a family with older children who can appreciate that older cats do not play as much, but nevertheless can give love and appreciation to their human adoptive family, and maintain their dignity and unique catty composure. Please consider adopting Freida and make her golden years special for this "touch chic" kitty. Freida is litter box trained, spayed, microchipped, tested neg-neg for Feline HIV and Feline Leukemia, vaccinated for FVRCP + Ch, Rabies, and Feline Leukemia. Freida has been given a complete geriatric veterinary exam, including extensive blood work profiling, twice in the past six months. (The most recent was November 2018.) Her first exam indicated anemia due to her starving condition, and some other imbalances. All blood chemistry profiles were back to normal six months later, after her extensive dental repair work and constant feeding coupled with nutritional supplements. She now eats normal senior high-quality cat food, but otherwise does not require a special diet, and she needs no medications. Frieda is indifferent to kids. She does not like most other cats. Her like/dislike of dogs is unknown.

This is Honey. Here’s her story straight from her amazing foster Tracy.. "Someone reached out on FB for help with a pregnant dog that had been hanging out on their porch for a few days on April 29, 2018. They figured she had been dumped. I was at the lake with my daughter when someone tagged me in the post. The person lived in Faulkner county so they couldn’t take her to the shelter since Faulkner County doesn’t have one. I saw the picture of her and couldn’t really tell what breed or how big or anything, but something pulled on my heartstrings so I went and got her. Even though she had a HUGE belly filled with babies, you could see every rib and her backbone protruding out. She was severely underweight. She was also covered in ticks and fleas. She was scared, so I picked her big self up and put her in my backseat. I talked to her on the way home and told her she was safe now and it was going to be ok. When I got home, I picked her up again (which was not an easy task, since she was almost as big as me lol) and put her in the bathtub and washed her and picked off every flea and tick. Then I set her up in a clean, cozy kennel and gave her some food and water, which she scarfed down very quickly. Fast forward to three days later, (May 2, 2018) Honey gave birth to 11 precious puppies in a kiddie pool in my kitchen. 7 girls and 4 boys. She was a wonderful mother and the puppies have since been adopted. Honey has made some tremendous growth since she’s been here with me. Her hair, that was once thin and always falling out is now soft and beautiful. Her once bony body is now at a healthy weight. She is gorgeous. She is still here with me being fostered while she goes through her treatment for heart worms. She had her first injection last week and she has been a trooper! I’m so excited that soon Honey will be ready for a home of her own. Anyone would be lucky to adopt this precious girl! She is super sweet with people and kids, LOVES food (probably because she was starving when I got her). She does fine with my cats. She ignores them. Doesn’t do very well with other dogs, especially other females. She loves my two boy dogs but it took her a while to get to like them and they are both very submissive. She’s a lad back kind of dog. Likes to sleep in the bed but will also do fine in a crate. Is crate trained. She LOVES to go on walks and walks very well on a leash. Sometimes loud noises scare her, vacuums, motorcycles, lawn mowers, STORMS, Just needs to be close to her owner when these things are going on. She had her first heartworm injection oct, 24th and will get her next two nov 20 and 21st. I’m guessing she’s around 2 years old and is just 53 pounds. Breed unknown, possibly a shepherd mix of some kind." Anyone interested in adopting Honey can go ahead and submit an application, but please understand she will not be released to go to her new home until she completes heartworm treatment. www.arkanpaws.org for the adoption application! show less

LOCATION OF PET: This cat is physically located in central Arkansas. We routinely send cats to the Northeast (except MA) via a professional, licensed pet transport company for an additional $75-$140 transport fee. Jago loves people! He wants to love you and hang around you as a devoted dog would do. He was raised with his five siblings, and gets along well with them and other cats as well. In the past month he has been living as part of a pair with his brother Palmer, and they have become tightly bound. Thus, we have decided that for the mental health of both of these bonded kitties that they should be adopted out as a pair. Twice the joy and affection await the lucky adopter of these two love-bugs, Palmer and Jago! Palmer and Jago would make excellent therapy cats. From Jago's foster: : Jago is one of two of the most lovable kitties that I’ve ever fostered. His fur is shiny and feels like velvet. He melts in your arms, and takes his paw and asks for more rubs. He is playful and easy. His buddy, Palmer, is also wonderful. They twist their tails together and pounce and play. I had a friend who is a cat lover over yesterday, and she said that these two kitties passed her best cat test. They came right up to her and both melted in her arms. They could easily be therapy cats. Jago loves heights, whether it’s the black walnut tree in the yard or the top front of your shirt. While Jago enjoys TLC in your lap, the kitten prefers to stretch out to full length so he can tuck its head under your chin. It is safe to say that full-body kitten hugs are addictive. Jago wants to teach technical rock climbing and bungee jumping as a career.

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT an ArkanPaws animal. This is a courtesy cross post. Any inquiries/applications received for this animal will be sent to the finder/foster for them to review and follow up on. Lil' Pearl is an absolute delight and will be available for adoption once her heartworm treatment is complete. She's looking for a home where she will be the only animal. Requires daily exercise. Not cat approved; has shown to be dog-aggressive. She is currently being fostered by the person who found her as a stray, in Little Rock AR. Her foster/finder has agreed that out of state transport can be arranged. She will NOT be adopted to anyone living in a BSL area. Please check to confirm if you're in an area like that before applying. THE FUN STUFF: She snorts cuz her nostrils are sort of smooshed, she has a beautiful underbite that she likes to show you, and she will lick you to death. Her favorite spot is sitting directly at/on your feet while leaning on you-if you move she falls. She knows "sit" and "crate up". Fully house trained - has no accidents, even with some steroid shots with her foster's long work hours. She will make and AMAZING companion to someone committed to her. We are taking Adoption Applications on her at this time, but please understand she will not be released to go to a new home until her treatment is complete. www.arkanpaws.org show less

Lionel

Male Senior Maine Coon Domestic Longhair (mixed)

NAME: Lionel DESCRIPTION: Senior neutered male, Domestic longhair, Gray silver tabby, Maine Coon features (not purebred) LOCATION OF PET: This cat is physically located in central Arkansas. He cannot be sent on transport out of state due to his special needs. VETTING DONE: Up-to-date on vaccinations (rabies, feline leukemia, and FVRCP+Ca), worming, and flea preventative. Neutered. Microchipped. Litter box trained. Tested Negative for Feline Leukemia, Positive for FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus) BIRTHDATE: Approximately 2005 SPECIAL NEEDS: Yes – hypertrophic heart, FIV positive GETS ALONG WITH KITTENS AND YOUNG CATS, will challenge and charge adult cats; Gets along with children; Unknown for dogs BIOGRAPHY: Imagine setting a trap expecting to catch a little stay cat, and instead catching a huge, mean, bloody, snarly Maine-Coon feral cat. Now what? The kind couple obligingly took him to the spay-neuter clinic to get neutered, ear-tipped, and vaccinated for rabies, standard protocol for captured feral cats. Then he was taken to an ArkanPaws Cats foster in the trap, the plan being to take him for release in an acquaintance’s barn. That didn’t work out. In the meantime, Lionel, as we named him, was miserable not only from being caged, but also because his bloody head and neck were due not to fighting, but as a result of intense scratching due to a horrible infestation of ear mites and the subsequent bacterial infections in his ear canal. The new foster started working with him, talking and eventually risking a stroke or two through the cage. Lionel communicated back to the foster with his eyes and body language. He told her his ears itched and he detested being soiled all over his beautiful long fur coat, and hated being in the cage. He also wanted to make friends with the kitten in the crate next to his. After a week the foster took a chance, and wearing heavy gloves pulled him out to give him a bath, vaccinated and wormed him, and began treating his ear mites with antibacterial and anti-mite medications. This started a long, loving relationship between the foster and Lionel. She knew this feral cat was unique because even though he acted like he would bite off the arm of any human who approached, he seemed so relieved that he was getting a bath and that his ears were getting thoroughly cleaned that he started purring during his bath. (I am not making this up; I have witnesses who were helping.) Fast forward a month, and Lionel is living in a spare room, always using the litter box, still uncomfortable with the residues of the hideous ear mite infection and still being treated for the infection. A three-some of young kittens are put in the room with him, and they are all watched carefully. Lionel became the doting grandpa, letting them play on and all over him, letting them pull his tail and bite his feet and nibble on his ears. Occasionally he plays too, but mostly just lets them use his body as a giant fluffy toy. Now fast forward another couple of months. Lionel has bonded with his foster. He sleeps in her bed with his head on her pillow, and often gently places his paw on her face and lips when she is reclining. He spoons up against her at every chance. He still loves little kittens (but aggressively stalks and challenges adult cats in the house, except for the ancient queen Freida, whom he avoids. (See her profile elsewhere.) Lionel seems to be a magnet for young cats and kittens. He was put in a room with a semi-feral young female, who had been living the past two months in the box springs of the foster’s bed (except for eating and using the little box). After a couple of weeks this young female came out of her shell and bonded to Lionel. She is playful, still timid, but no longer a phantom cat. Lionel is now her best friend. He likes her, but the dependency is not mutual. Now to the present: Lionel has complete recovered from his ear mites. He is beautiful and one of the cleanest, most fastidious cats we’ve ever seen. When not sending hugs and kisses to his foster, he is grooming himself almost incessantly. His ear mites and ear infections have completely cleared up. He spends his days letting kittens play on or near him, and looking out the window, waiting for his foster to come home. At first he ran and hid from all humans except his foster. He is still extremely shy with strangers, but after working with him for about an hour a person was able to pick him up and hug him. Lionel wants to go to a forever home where he does not have to be shut up in a bedroom all day while his foster is at work. Lionel is FIV positive, but this will not be a problem unless he gets in a serious fight and deep-bites the other cat. Lionel has a hypertrophic heart and cannot be handled roughly or stressed. E.g., when trimming his nails, he had to be calmed repeatedly, and the procedure took several hours due to his struggling and then gasping slightly for breath. Lionel has had a complete geriatric veterinary check-up, including extensive blood and body chemistry work-up. All of his vitals and the blood work are good, except for his huge (hypertrophic) heart and his being FIV positive. More information about FIV in cats: https://www.vet.cornell.edu/departments-centers-and-institutes/cornell-feline-health-center/health-information/feline-health-topics/feline-immunodeficiency-virus Adoption fee is $100.00. Lionel cannot be sent on transport out of state (out of Arkansas).
