The truth and nothing but the truth about our adorable, adoptable foster cats

She's partial ...
... to the red blanket.
It was love at first sight. The fleece was on the floor by my feet. Missy plopped herself down on it and began kneading vigorously.
I normally do my work downstairs, but since we've been giving Missy the run of only the upper hall for this first week, I decided to keep her company by setting up a little computer station on one of these window sills. Missy came to my chair several times and got up on her hind legs to check out my lap, but she seemed uncertain about testing it out. On a whim, I picked up the red blanket and placed it on my knees.
That sealed the deal.
Now, whenever I sit down to start the day, Missy waits for me to put her fleece on my lap and then hops right up. After that, she's good for hours. Yep, hours. There's purring and head-bumping and kneading and napping and grooming and napping some more ...
Here, Missy, why don't you show everyone what I'm talking about?
Um, Missy ...
Ope, a little to your left. More left. Wait -- there!
Okay, close enough, you can stop making that face, Missy. I'll get right back to the head-scratching. So sorry to interrupt your bliss.
The kitties here are available for adoption through the Seattle Humane Society. They get lots of love and attention in our home while patiently waiting for the right parent(s) to come along. We work very hard to connect the kitties with families of their own, so if you're interested in any of our fosters, please send us an e-mail. We'll be happy to help you through the adoption process with the SHS.
Our current feature foster
There are no fosters in our home at this time, but there are many kitties in need of families at the Seattle Humane Society! Please check out the profiles of potential adoptees here.
The adoption process
In order to adopt one of our kitties, you must complete an adoption application and submit it to the Seattle Humane Society. More information on SHS adoption policies and fees is available on the SHS website.
To speak with someone at the SHS about adoptions, please call (425) 649-7563.
