Young Adults

While technically not kittens anymore, these kitties are definitely still kids. Their bottomless energy stores combined with their love of toys make them the biggest stars of our Adoption Events.

Little Guy, Male, 1 1/2-2 Years Old

Little Guy

Hi! My name is Little Guy and I’d love to be your best buddy. I purr a lot, especially when people talk to me. I’m not much of a talker myself but will answer when you ask me a question. I’m still a young boy, so I need room to play and jump. My favorite toys have feathers and spin around and I enjoy high perches from which to look out the window. My foster mom thinks I might enjoy a kitty friend to help me run off some of my energy.
What would you get if you brought me home? A loyal companion who will follow you around the house to see what you’re doing. I’m not much of a lap cat, yet, but I enjoy soft blankets and snuggling next to you. As my trust in you grows, I might become a lap cat.
What do you think? Ready to get to know me more?

Little Guy

Lily, Female, 1 1/2-2 Years Old

checking out a new family


Lily’s tale is sadly not an unusual one. A happy little kitten with a happy home, until her human dad lost first his job, and then his home. So Lily is now with Tails High, hoping to find a new home. This sweet girl scoffs at all bad stereotypes of black cats, considering them to be ridiculous and beneath her notice. She also scoffs at all negative stereotypes of cats in general. She is very gentle and good natured; and gets along with every cat, young or old, that she’s ever met. When you call her name she will instantly scamper to your side, purring as she climbs into your lap to be snuggled. Petite Lily has no objections to being picked up and carried – she simply views it as another form of snuggling. If a wand toy is produced she will instantly pounce, tail and whiskers twitching. When left to her own devices, Lily will stay at the window for hours, watching the birds and squirrels outside.

Goldie, Male, 2 Years Old


If you’re searching for a kitty that’s as good as gold, look no further than Goldie! This handsome boy is about 2 years old and while he is a bit shy and scared from his time at the shelter, he would do very well with a cat experienced adopter that will give him time to warm up. Goldie is understandably confused finding himself without a home as he was surrendered by his owners and wants a new home to flourish in.

Cinnamon, Female, 2 1/2 Years Old

checking out a new family


Meet Cinnamon! This 2 1/2 year old girl was unfortunately surrendered when her family lost their home. She is very playful, full of energy and extremely affectionate. Cinnamon loves to cuddle and sleep with her people which she is clearly missing now. Do you have a place in your heart and home for this sweetie?

Icy, Female, Young


Meet Icy, our (not actually) skateboarding cat! Truthfully, she just saw the skateboard one morning and decided it would make an acceptable perch. Icy was first spotted as a tiny little ball of orange fluff hiding under a bush; and it was months before she was willing to allow herself to be caught and brought inside. Since that time, our resident cat trainer has been patiently working with the once-feral girl, helping her adapt to indoor life and being around people. Icy has made great strides and is ready to start looking for a new home, but she’ll need experienced cat people who will continue to work with her. Icy likes to be near her people, has learned that she does enjoy being petted, and has even worked up the courage to not panic if she’s picked up. She will come when called, and would be equally fine being around other cats or by herself. Playing with toys is still something of a mystery to Icy, although the laser dot does get her attention.

Fun fact: most orange tabby cats are male. Icy is the rare female orange tabby.

Jarvis, Male, Young Adult

checking out a new family


Handsome tabby cat Jarvis arrived on his rescuers porch one evening, and has stayed there ever since. And while the porch is lovely, he’d really prefer to be a house cat, as evidenced by his repeated attempts to sneak in to the house whenever there’s an open door. Jarvis is a lovable, friendly boy who is on equally good terms with both children and adults. He loves to rub against people’s legs while chatting about his day, and will lean in for a head bonk when picked up. All of us, Jarvis included, would love to see him safely inside before the cold weather hits.

Whitney, Female, Young Adult


Whitney’s favorite activity in the world is to lie next to her person, getting rubs. Her next favorite thing in the world is being brushed. In fact, anyone who promises to brush her on a daily basis will have a devoted feline friend for life; and an offer of brushings will help overcome her initial caution around new people. Whitney does her best to maintain a certain level of decorum, and likes to insist that she’s far too dignified to scamper about like a silly kitten playing with toys. But then she spots the laser light, and all attempts at cat-like dignity are promptly forgotten as she eagerly chases the light around the room. Another favorite is the rainbows cast by crystal prisms hanging from windows – although she tries to only chase and pounce at those (the rainbows, not the crystals) when she thinks you’re not looking. Because if Whitney catches you watching her chasing rainbows, she will immediately try to pretend that she was doing no such thing and that you imagined the whole scenario. Whitney has requested that her future home include a corrugated cardboard scratching pad, as those are her favorite. If her future home could include her best friend Bones as well, she would greatly appreciate it (although she’s willing to consider going it alone).

Mia, Female, 1-2 Years Old


Mia has been patiently waiting for her forever home. She is sweet and affectionate.

Houdina, Female, 1-2 Years Old

Houdina has been patiently waiting for her forever home. She is sweet and affectionate.

Sangria, Female, 2-4 Years Old


Look at those precious eyes! It’s hard to believe that Sangria was rescued as a stray because she is as sweet as can be. This petite girl is approximately 2-4 years old, affectionate and has a tiny little meow that adds to her charm. Sangria has been great with other cats and playful with her roommate Dean. We would love to find her forever home so she can continue to blossom!


Gardenia, Female, 2-3 Years Old

checking out a new family


Gardenia came to Tails High from a home with too many cats. She was a young mother at the time and raised her kittens with a Tails High foster family. Once her babies were weaned and independent, Gardenia was ready for her own forever family.
Gardenia is a lively and affectionate young lady. Estimated to be around 2 – 3 years old, she is still as playful as a kitten. Every kind of toy grabs her interest. She loves to chase small balls, and will even pick one up in her paw and toss it in the air a little to make it go in a different direction. Small stuffed animals get carried in her mouth from room to room until she decided to tumble with them on the floor, rolling over and over with them clutched to her belly. Sometimes she will place a small toy mouse behind an object, then race to a covert position where she assumes the classic cat hunter rear end wiggle before jumping out to pounce on her toy prey. String toys and laser pointer lights are favorite exercise options. As clever as she is lively, Gardenia views wrought iron railings as her own personal climbing wall, surveying the ornamentations carefully before choosing a route to climb to the top of the railing. Once at the top, she struts and turns like a tight rope walker.
Once Gardenia is tired from all her play, she will seek out a sunny window to watch birds and squirrels, or nap on a fleece blanket. She will also cuddle with her favorite human, but only when she chooses to herself. Then she will jump in your lap, align her body closely up your chest and stare lovingly into your eyes while purring loudly. Sometimes she even brings a paw up to lightly touch your face in affection.
Gardenia does get along with other cats, as you can see in the photo with her foster sister Gypsy, but it takes time for her to get over her initial suspicion. At first she will hiss and keep her distance, but after a few weeks she becomes a nice companion to a receptive existing pet in the household.
If you’re interested in meeting Gardenia please send us a message!

Momo, Male, 4 Years Old


Momo is a bit like an onion – he has layers. The outer layer that you first meet is shy and easily frightened, which will lead to rapid scampering to the nearest hidey spots. After time though, and peeling back the layers of shyness (a new layer gets added whenever a new person is introduced), you will reach the playful little purr-monster that he really is. Momo adores being scritched behind the years (the activity most likely to induce purring), and you will know that you have truly peeled back all of the onion layers the night that Momo hops up on the bed to snuggle with you at night. Playtime is best when it involves plastic sticks, catnip mousies, paper bags, and empty laundry baskets. This cute little house panther is of the special variety that will go exploring outdoors on a leash and harness – just keep an eye out for dogs as Momo is very frightened of them. Momo has one request for his new person (two requests, if you include that he wants you to protect him from dogs) – he requires a special diet to prevent UTIs. The food is easily acquired, and he’s quite happy eating it.

Sherlock, Female, 4 Years Old


With a name like Sherlock, certain expectations are automatically set. This Sherlock, however, has decided that she just can’t be bothered with that kind of pressure, and instead opts for a more cuddle-centric, couch potato personality and lifestyle. You need never fear any scathing remarks from her – Sherlock prefers to remain silent unless you are late with breakfast. After breakfast she will nap on her favorite blanket. If given the opportunity she will curl up at your feet while you are watching TV, and on occasion she may attempt to join in a basketball game if you are watching one. Another favored napping spot is your stomach; and if she’s not napping she enjoys looking out of the window at the birds, bugs, butterflies and squirrels; or possibly finding a paper bag to curl up in. She will very politely take treats from your hand if you are kind enough to offer. In short, if you are looking for a Netflix and chill partner, Sherlock is the cat for you.
*Sherlock is a special needs kitty – vets were able to deduce that she has environmental allergies. These allergies are easily managed though.

"Kitty", Female, 5 Years Old (Estimated)

picture pending

This sweet little cat appeared on her caretakers porch one evening, a place where she has continued to seek sanctuary. Her caretakers recently contacted us and asked if we could help find her a home – the other neighborhood cats beat up on her, and she has lost the sight in one of her eyes. She doesn’t actually have a name, but she is friendly and quiet, and absolutely adores being petted. Don’t let her appearance alarm you – on a recent trip to the vet she received what is known as a lion cut, due to her fur being horribly matted. But when it grows back in she has beautiful long black fur with white tuxedo markings. If you have a safe place, this little stray would love nothing more than to have a name, a warm bed inside a house, a person to call her own, and an endless supply of pettings.

Chewy, Male, 6 Years Old


Meet Chewy! He’s currently a Tails High Foster waiting for his perfect forever home and boy does he deserve one!
An incredibly friendly medium haired cat named Chewy (for his Chewbacca-esque appearance) is seeking his forever home. Chewy is a very mellow cat who likes spending time near his humans and on laps (when not driving the Millennium Falcon through the galaxy). He’s a wonderful companion and has a sweet and loving temperament. He’s constantly purring and enjoys napping, gazing out windows…and when feeling spunky, a string or laser toy. He is six years old and is special needs.
