Agnes came to Tenth Life in rough shape, found wandering along train tracks in a rural area of Missouri. She is a senior lady, estimated between 12 and 15 years of age. She has been on a lengthy road of rest and recovery, but is in much better shape and spirits now in her loving foster home. She has blossomed into a beautiful long-haired dilute Tortoiseshell, and has an adorable, funny personality. Once she gains your trust and kindness, she quickly warms up and is an extremely loving and affectionate girl who loves attention. Her favorite pastimes include sitting on your lap to be pet and cuddled, smooshing her face into human faces, and gazing out windows from the comfort of her cozy bed inside of a warm and loving home. She does have a feisty side as well which is quite cute, and isn’t afraid to let you know she’s no push-over either. She is in good health overall for her age. Because of tooth disease and decay, she’s had all her teeth removed, but manages to eat just fine on a diet of wet, canned food only. She also has a chronic herpes virus which can manifest in an eye irritation flareup, but it’s managed very well by adding lysine and probiotic to her food daily. While we don’t know much about her long history, we are assuming she probably lived on the streets and fended for herself for a long time. Likely because of this, she can be wary of people and situations she doesn’t know and trust. She’s also not too fond of other kitties and would prefer to be the only cat in a calm, relaxed home with someone who is loving, gentle, patient and understanding.

Meet Ashley Olson! Ashley is an amazing cat. She is honestly just the sweetest, most chill chonker on the planet. If you want a cat who will mind her own business and keep herself entertained while you're busy, but you also want one who will soak up all your affection and return it with chatty quacks, soft purrs, and strong head butts, then Ashley is the cat for you. She even loves belly rubs! She especially loves it if you give her a good brushing and then finish it off with aforementioned belly rubs. And maybe a tasty treat. When Ashley first came to Tenth Life from Animal Control, she was very timid. She wanted love, but she was too afraid to come out of her hideaway bed to show her face. Since she has been in a quieter foster home, this gorgeous girl has blossomed!. Although she would be more than happy to be your only pet, we think that with proper introductions (plenty of time to adjust) she could do well with another nonaggressive cat, as long as Ashley has a space of her own to retreat to when she feels the need. This beautiful senior girl wants nothing more than a forever home with lots of love! Could that home be yours?

Get ready to meet your new best friend! Contrary to his name, Bane is a very sweet, friendly kitty. He loves attention and isn't shy about asking for it! He is an expert cuddler and loves nothing more than to sit on your lap or in your arms while you stroke his chocolate brown fur. Bane is happy to follow you around the house while telling you all about his day. He is just as delighted to settle down with you for a nice, quiet nap. Bane is a senior gentleman, but he still has plenty of kitten spirit! He is a big fan of interactive wand toys, and he can also entertain himself by kicking around a ball or a catnip toy. He seems to be friendly with other cats. Curious and a little mischievous, Bane is sure to be an entertaining household companion! Bane has IBD, for which he requires a prescription diet and daily medication. Never fear, just pop his pills inside some pill wrap and he'll gobble them up like treats! Bane loves to snack! He is excellent about using the litter box and enjoys getting in a good scratch and stretch on a sisal scratching post. If you have extra love and attention to give, consider making Bane a part of your family! He can't wait to meet you!

Hey All! My name is Beck, and I am one cool cat! My Tenth Life foster mama took me in when another rescue in the state could no longer keep me. I am such an easy going kitty and love playing with my kitty roommates! I’m good with the dog too, and he lets me sleep next to him. I do appreciate a good belly rub and even give my foster mama hugs! I have something the docs call diabetes insipidus, or water diabetes. It’s under control, but I need to get my eye drops three times a day to avoid being dehydrated. Anytime there’s water around, I’m there! (That includes open cups and glasses – Mama says no to those, though.) I also have a little heart murmur that’s controlled by a tiny pill twice a day. I don’t mind because Mama puts them in soft treats that are yummy. Everyone tells me how sweet I am. Good looking, too! I’m still pretty young, so I play a lot, and some day, I WILL catch that red dot!

Meet Eartha Kitten. Well, maybe give her a little time before proper salutations. She will shyly wait in a secluded place, observing your voice and movement before politely presenting herself with grace. You see, she longs to make a good first impression. When at ease with you and her new space, Eartha’s favorite activities are sitting in window sills, admiring the movement of the world outdoors—rustling wind, fluttering birds, the garden hues—and sitting on your lap. She doesn’t demand affection, but if you give her a place to cozy up, she looks at you with patient eyes and mews, graciously thanking you for letting her join Under the Bridges of Paris or wherever your adventure awaits. At the beginning of the day and close of night, prepare an open lap or cozy pillows, and she will make biscuits, telling you that she trusts you like a mother. If you ever hear a beckoning meow from Eartha, you’ll find a toy in her mouth rather than a hunger for kibble. While she enjoys restful alone and quiet times, Eartha loves calling her best friend and brother, Johnny Cash to play. If you ask them to rest, she urges Johnny to settle down because she doesn’t want to leave him singing the Folsom Prison Blues. Johnny would do anything for his sister, even when she commandeers his box. If you’re seeking a lapcat and only have one lap, worry not! They love to share. They’re a bonded pair and will happily share that kinship with you

Forte is a Manx-type kitty as she has no tail. She is a very special kitty as she requires manual expressing of her bladder and bowels, 3-4 times a day. And this is exactly why Tenth Life exists, to give special kitties a chance. She loves to romp and play and she has a very special walk. Due to her Manx issues, she âbunny hopsâ with her hind legs. Forte cannot jump, but she can climb! This is able to get on the bed and climb a 5â cat tree! She is able to jump off of these perches, sometimes land squarely, sometimes not. She does need a carpeted house so she does not have a hard landing. She loves toys and laser lights. Forte has learned that dogs can be friends. She LOVES to eat Fancy Feast! Forte got her name, well, because she was SO LOUD as a tiny kitten. NOTE that kittens needs buddies, and will grow up to be better socialized kitties with their humans. And two cats are so much more fun then one when they grow up together. Approx DOB: April 2014

Jasper was found living outside amongst a feral colony that was being going to be trapped, neutered, and returned. When his rescuer approached Jasper, he immediately began licking her hand and confirmed there was not a feral bone in his malnourished body. He loves to give kisses and "talks" to you while he waits for his bowl of food to be filled. He loves to chase furry mice and his cat wand, and even though he prefers not to be picked up he does love to be close to someone and will lay by your side and near your chair. He lives with another cat buddy and appears to be very cat friendly, but loud noises send him into hiding. Jasper would love to be in a home where he can get lots of quiet attention and love. Approx DOB October 2010 Jasper has tested positive for FeLV. It would be best for Jasper to be the only cat OR share a home w/other FeLV+ cats. How is FeLV spread? http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/brochures/felv.html Cats persistently infected with FeLV serve as sources of infection. Virus is shed in very high quantities in saliva and nasal secretions, but also in urine, feces, and milk from infected cats. Cat-to-cat transfer of virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming, and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes. Transmission can also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing. FeLV doesn't survive long outside a cat's body, probably less than a few hours under normal household conditions

Meet Johnny Cash. His talents may not be in crooning but he is a swooner. He feigns interest in your work because he knows that’s the best way to your heart and lap. If offered, he will snuggle up in your lap all day and into the night, and then cuddle into your blanket because all he really wants is love. You might say he’s a kitchen cat. While making dinner or washing dishes, he sits dutifully, observing your every movement. He knows that the lap will soon welcome him again. And he knows that, if you’re making food, you might give him some, too. He loves kibble, especially when you make it hard to get. You see, he needs to exercise to keep up his fit figure. But don’t think he’s just charms and games. He’s there when you need him, too, even if your lap is busy. Despite Johnny’s adoration of you, there is one thing in life he loves more: his sister and best friend, Eartha Kitten. He would do anything for her, even when she commandeers his box. Johnny has FIV, which makes it hard for him to live with other cats. That suits him just fine because Eartha is his best friend. If you’re seeking a lapcat and only have one lap, worry not! They love to share. They’re a bonded pair and will happily share that kinship with you.

This is Juice! This sweet, soft, orange boy came to Tenth Life as a very young kitten. At that time he was adopted and went home to his forever friend, Oscar. At no fault of their own, Juice and his pal Oscar were returned to Tenth Life's care and are now searching for a family to call their own together. Juice and Oscar like to sleep and play together. They get along wonderfully, but do not care for other kitties. Juice has luxating patellas and takes a medication for it. It doesn't prevent him from playing or running though, and boy, does this guy like to run and play! Juice is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and has tested negative for FeLV and FIV. Would you like to meet Juice and Oscar today? They'd love to get to know you!

Marshal Matt Dillion wants you to know that he is a very snuggly boy. He sticks to his foster mom velcro & greets me when she get home at night waiting at the door. His foster mom says he has the cutest meow ever! You know you want to hear it!! He lives with a dog who he doesn't always want to play with, but he is not afraid of him! He isn't scared of anything - even when we had to tell him that he has gastrointestinal lymphoma. He doesn't let his age or diagnosis stop him from playing hard and LOVING catnip! Marshal does have a medication regime, and he does need an experienced adopter to make sure that he receives them. He doesn't love taking them, but he doesn't bite - just a little feisty sometimes says his foster mom! He is also on a prescription diet to help. We know that Marshal is a very special boy. We also know he needs a special family to take on his needs and care. But here at Tenth Life, we are full of positivity and we think there's a home out there for every kitty! Are you Marshal's?
