Meet Tux! Tux is a handsome black and white tuxedo cat, about 4 years old. We believe he was left behind when someone moved. No one reported him missing. Tux had been eating for months off of my porch and, during the cold winter months, he slept in the heated cat houses.This sweet boy was very mannerly, often waiting politely at the fence line while people were in the driveway or on the porch. When everyone left, Tux would proceed to the porch to get his meal. He certainly was (and is!) a charmer. Sweet and polite as he was, Tux was also elusive. One day, two people in the neighborhood described a black and white cat that was limping and hurt. Tux was trapped and brought into care immediately. He had been attacked and had a large hole in his cheek. At the vet, the staff remarked how loving and sweet he is and how everyone fell in love with him. Tux is all better now and is ready for his forever home. He has a very easy-going personality and gets along great with other cats. He will politely walks away if someone even so much as hisses at him. (Cats can be so....catty!) Tux enjoys being pet and will often sit next to you while watching tv. He would make a great companion cat. He enjoys his canned food and loves to look out  nice, big sunny windows. He really wants to be loved and be part of a family and would prefer a family that is quiet and low activity with kids over 12. This guy just enjoys life and being loved. NO DOGS. Tux does not seem to get along with male cats. Tux is neutered, had his rabies and FVRCP vaccines, tested negative for feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. You won't need to pay every year to re-register him - it's done. Tux is ready to go home now. Let us know if you would like to meet this charming tuxedo. GoodMews22@aol.com show less

BFFs Fisher, Gar"Bonzo," & Watson - A Tale of 3 Friends​ Every week we get many requests for Fisher, an orange tabby that came to us with his 5 siblings last summer. Fisher and his family were dumped at the dump and ended up at a high kill shelter – a double whammy. Forgotten Felines pulled Fisher and his siblings and all were adopted, except Fisher. “So…if you are getting a lot of calls for Fisher, what’s the problem?” you ask. Well…​ Fisher has always been a bit of a loner and always sat apart from his siblings. He never wanted to play with them, he seemed to be a thinker type kinda guy, quiet. He never seemed to have any self esteem or real identity. Last summer we got in an entire family of orange cats that set up “house” in an office parking lot, right on the side of I-29 – remember? Gar”Bonzo” was the dad of that litter. Bonzo is a large orange tabby with white paws with an easy-going personality, though he didn’t come to us that way, he is TOTALLY a smooshie-guy now.​ Bonzo took an interest in Fisher and cleaned him, slept with him, and even played with toys with him. Keep in mind, Bonzo never even knew what a toy was…but he did this for Fisher. He seemed to know what Fisher needed and saw the emptiness in him…and filled it. Bonzo let Fisher know that he was okay and everything was okay. He mentored him in a way. This big ol’ cat from the streets took Fisher under his wing and became a big part of Fisher’s life. “Okay then, so adopt them together.” Last summer I received a call from the high kill shelter to pull some cats bc they would be euthanized. We took in the cats and when I asked if there were any more that needed out, the reply was, “We have one, but he will be put down bc he is feral.” I said I would take him. (Lots of times cats are not feral, just terrified from being in a big, loud, scary shelter, wondering what their fate will be.) I was told, “No, you don’t want him. He really is feral. We will put him down.” “No I want him.” I replied. Thinking, even a barn home is better than death.​ Watson came to us the following day, a day before he was slated for death. This big gray and white guy just stayed in his carrier in the crate and I barely saw him for the first month he was with us. He came out of his carrier at night to eat and that was about it. Sometimes when I would come into the room late at night, I would see him lounging on top of his carrier and he would quickly run inside again, escaping interaction with me. I never heard a growl or a hiss, ever. Hmmm…I thought, feral, huh?​ After Watson settled in, he was fully vetted and the door was opened on his crate. He could now come out and meet everyone he had been looking at for awhile, or stay in his crate if he chose. The decision was his. He came out and within a week or so, became best buds with Bonzo – after all, they had a lot in common. These are 2 guys that most would’ve given up on and dismissed as unfriendly cats, without taking the time to get to know them. Soon, Watson began cleaning and grooming little Fisher, too, eating with him, sleeping with him, and bonding with him.​ Now the world seemed to shine down on these three friends and all was happy and good, but they still need to complete their story. This is where you come in.​ These 3 friends are not traditional lap cats. Bonzo and Watson can be pet but do not like to be picked up – that’s okay. They often look out the French doors from the playroom and let me know when I am late to give them their canned food breakfast. They rub up against my legs when I come into the room. They can be pet and love affection. They are sweet cats who deserved to live. Once in a quiet home, they will most-likely bloom with a person they can trust.​ We are introducing these 3 guys, who have been through so much, to be part of a family. A family that is loving and understanding and patient and lets them adapt into their new home with love and patience. And so….I introduce to you….Gar”Bonzo” and Watson and Fisher. Three friends together. All fully vetted and microchipped, looking to add another chapter to their success story. (A deep discount will apply when adopting.)

Meet Woody & Jessie, two bonded siblings with a sad past. They were found dumped in an empty dumpster behind a Culpeper pest control company as 6-7 week old kittens. (Thank goodness it was empty or there would have been poisons in there!) There was no way for them to have climbed inside, they were too little. There was no reason for them to go inside - there was nothing in it that would be tasty - it was completely empty. No wrries, They are safe. These two are adorable little white and brown tabbies, Woody is a bobtail, but not by birth - the vet believes there was some sort of blunt-force trauma a long before the dupster.  He is much larger than sister, Jessie, and tends to want to wrestle and rough-house, more than she does. :0) Jessie is a quiet little girl, happy to sit on th esidelines and watch, but will get involved with Woody's highjinx if she must/ They are both little lovebugs and enjoy being held and loved on, goodness knows, their past obviously did not have much cuddling and love. Both siblings are spayed/neutered, dewormed, received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine if 4 month or older when adopted, are tested negatived for FIV and feline leukemia, and are microchipped with a lifetime registration - no need to pay $20+ to reregister every year, it's done for life! Interested in these cuties? Please email us at GoodMews22@aol.com. They will be ready for adoption on 9/25/22. show less
