Older Souls

These golden-age beauties like to live on the slower side of life, but are not above chasing a mouse or two to liven things up every once in a while. If you are interested in adopting a one of these golden beauties please fill out our Online Adoption Form or attend one of our Adoption Events.

If you are unsure about whether or not to adopt an older cat, please see a testimonial here about adopting an older soul.


Icy, Female, Born 2014

Icy

When visitors arrive at their foster home, Icy and Stella often run to the door to say hello and get some pets but Icy is still working on lap sitting, being held, brushed, and being a nice girl all the time. She and her long-time friend Stella would love to go to a new home together. Icy is a very pretty girl who is not a good first cat and will not do well with children or dogs. Icy would love to spend many years with a cat-experienced loving person or family who will help her continue to grow. She came to Tails High in 2014 when she was about six months old.

Stella, Female, Born 2014

Stella

Stella came to Tails High in 2015 with her babies. She was a very scared girl and it took her quite a long time to warm up and learn to trust us. She’s now a sweet girl who can still get scared in new situations but she also may come and ask for pets or hugs or she may join you in bed as you’re waking up. Stella is good friends with Icy, they greet visitors together at the door they’d love to go to a new home together. Stella is not a good first cat and won’t do well with children or dogs.

Tabby, Male, Born August 2013

Tabby

Tabby is a very sweet guy that is calm and easy going. Since coming to Tails High he has enjoyed lots of love and attention after his owner fell ill and was no longer able to care for him. Tabby has had an ongoing kitty cold that we keep at bay with medication that his new family will likely have to continue from time to time. While he’s had this little bit of a hurdle, his happy demeanor and appetite has never waivered. This guy loves to eat! Tabby is ready to find his forever home to bond with a family as he did in his past.

Precious, Female, 15 Years Old

Precious

Precious is a gorgeous 15 year old sweet little torbie/tabby lady looking for her soft place to fall. She came to us after her dad passed away and she ended up homeless. She was so stressed she was under weight and had pulled out some of her fur. She now has a healthy weight and her gorgeous fur is in excellent shape. She loves to be pet behind her ears and all over. She will sit on your lap and purr for hours. She also has spunk in her older age and still loves to play. She is healthy for her age. Precious is a treat to come home to and anyone would be lucky to come home to this sweet companion.

Macaroni, Female, Born 2009

Macaroni

This lovely lady was adopted as a Tails High kitten in 2009. She’s come back to us after the passing of her human. Macaroni was sad for a while but she’s acclimated well to her foster home. She needs her thyroid pill twice a day and she never knows it’s been crushed up and mixed into her food. Macaroni wants to be the queen, your one and only and she will need to be brushed on a very regular basis to avoid developing matts. You can wake up every morning with the lovely macaroni cuddled up in your arm pit! She is not a good fit for homes with children or dogs.

Nomad, Male, 10 years old

Nomad

Nomad has had quite the life over the last 10 years leading up to his recent journey to Northern Virginia. This handsome fella was very well loved in his home in Kabul until his dad, along with countless others, fled Afghanistan this past summer. His dad loved him and got him to safety with Kabul Small Animal Rescue where he was well taken care of until Mission Possible evacuated Nomad and 300 friends to Vancouver. To say this boy is special would be insufficient. It’s hard to sum up his personality but we’ll try – what a lover boy?!?! Nomad loves to be held, to sit on your lap, be pet and his dad tells us he slept in bed with him every night. Nomad likes to chat and is a talkative boy in his foster home. As he’s been making himself comfortable in the US, we addressed some dental issues and Nomad had several teeth removed so he’s feeling much better. We also learned he is FIV+ but currently has healthy bloodwork. This just means he could have less immunity than a kitty without FIV but can still live a long life. We’d be happy to talk to any interested adopter about Nomad to determine if he’s a good fit for your family. We are determined to find him the best possible home so he never has to go through stressful times again.

Augusta, Female, 15 Years Old

Augusta

Augusta was very fortunate to find her way to Tails High after a Good Samaritan asked for help after she turned up on her porch outside in West Virginia. Augusta had clearly been outside trying to survive on her own for quite some time as she was covered in matted fur, fleas and abrasions. Our vets believed she lost her eye many years ago as it had completely healed and doesn’t cause her any pain or limitations. Augusta has seen our vets a number of times since coming into rescue and they’ve informed us that she is an old gal that could have underlying health issues not easily diagnosed. Despite the fact that we may not have much time with Augusta, we’re committed to making sure she is loved very much whether that is in a foster home or with a special forever home that is willing to give her an opportunity to be adopted by a family of her very own. She continues to give kisses and show us every day how grateful she is for her second chance.

Sissy, Female, 10 Years Old

Sissy

Sissy is an easy going 10 year old, affectionate kitty who loves long naps and snuggling with her human. Sadly, Sissy’s human mom just passed away and this sweet girl is looking for a new home. Sissy also had a chihuahua sibling who was recently rehomed so she gets along with small dogs and doesn’t mind other kitties. Sissy likes to play with toys and loves a window with a good view for birdwatching.

Sobi, Male, Born 2010

Sobi

Meet Sobi! This dapper gentleman is estimated to be 12 years old with lots of love to give. Sobi found himself at the shelter but when our team saw him, we knew he had to be a Tails High cat – he’s so sweet! Sobi loves pets and human affection but he doesn’t really enjoy other cats being around so he’s much happier in a foster home than the busy shelter. He’s a sweet guy that will sit with you on the couch and relax. Sobi would be best suited for a home without other pets or small children and will be your best friend.
