Mama Abby was one of 12 cats found abandoned by their former humans in Virginia. She was very pregnant when she was found and gave birth to three kittens only a few days later (Avery, Axel, Alfred - DOB 12 April 2019). She has been a very good mama kitty.  Mama Abby will be available after she is spayed and vetted. Her original foster in VA said she has was good with other cats but wasn't a fan of being held. She enjoys pets most of the time but can be shy/skiddish. She has adjusted well to indoor life but may need some extra time to become totally comfortable. ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Meet April!  April is a 4 year old spayed female looking for her third, and hopefully, final home. She was originally given up to the rescue because she "was lashing out at the kids and the small dog in the home". A new family adopted her but were unable to keep her when they were forced to move to a new location that did not allow cats. She has been in a "temporary foster" since September 2018 while the family looked for a new housing.  Unfortunately, the family has not yet returned for her or kept in regular contact with the rescue so she is back up for adoption.  April will need to lose some weight since she is a little (a lot) on the chunky side. She gets along well all of the with other animals at her foster home (dogs and cats) but prefers to watch from the side lines. She does not interact with her foster family much, but does not mind the busy family coming and going.  April accepted some head scratches today from a person she had never met before. She is friendly, but cautious. And appears to like to do her own thing.  April is fully vetted. She has been spayed, shots, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, and microchipped.  April estimated DOB 4/1/15 spayed female ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Mama Casey was found as a pregnant stray in VA. She showed and gave birth to four babies on a property owned by her rescue'ts boss at the end of April. Unfortunately, by the time they were found and trapped two babies were too weak and didn't make it. :( Yesterday (6/13) they made the 4 hour trip up to MD. Today Mama Casey was vetted and spayed. She is now at a foster with her two surviving kittens, Cupcake and Canolli. Cupcake and Cannoli's estimated DOB 4/27/19. Momma is estimated to be 1-2 years old. Mama Casey is fully vetted (spayed, UTD on shots, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped, dewormed). She is a smaller framed adult cat who looks more like a young adult kitten. She enjoys running around (although it may be more because she has been couped up in a cage at Pet Valu for several months) and makes the cutest squeak/chirp meow noise.  Mama Casey is a bit shy and will often hide or run away when you walk towards her. But she almost always comes back out after you sit down/stop moving. She also does not like to be picked up but we are slowly working on that. She is not mean about it, just scared.  Mama Casey is good around cats and probably would be fine around dogs. She basically does her own thing and doesn't care if a resident cat is giving her the evil eye. She LOVES head and belly scratches and will roll around, stretch and chirp for attention. She is also very gentle with her nails! (I haven't been able to clip them since she arrived and they definitely need trimming.) Http://www.rescueandadopt.org/adopt show less

Mika was rescued from an alley in Baltimore by a fellow animal rescuer in April 2018. She was taken to Barcs to be spayed. They didn’t know she was pregnant until they began the surgery 😥. She developed mastitis and was very sensitive about her tummy being touched, and wouldn’t let us pick her up. Just recently she has allowed her foster to pick her up and even let’s us touch around her belly without getting worked up.  Mika is a very playful girl, estimated between 1.5 and 2 years. She “squeaks”, rather than meows, and races around the house playing. She loves helping make my bed every morning by chasing and attacking the covers.  ASHA tried to feature her at PetValu in Glen Burnie but she was very scared and stressed so she went back to her foster home. She has been with her foster for nearly a year. Mika does well with cats and dogs but may be shy around strangers. She is fully vetted and UTD on her shots. Please consider giving this playful girl a furever home.  ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Murray (previously Dexter and originally Ricky) was just returned to the rescue because the adopter got pregnant (and "couldn't have a litter box around"). His former adopter thinks that Dexter is good with children 5 and older. The family had a young son.  Ricky was born 6/19/2018 and is currently 1.5 years old. (As of 12/22/2019). He was renamed to Dexter by the family who adopted him as a kitten. He is currently named Murray since he seemed to respond to that name at his temporary foster.  Murray is neutered but his shots are currently out of date because his former owner let them lapse. (He will receive full vetting, including updated shots, prior to adoption). He was living outside for an unknown length of time before he was returned to the rescue so he will need to be re-tested and dewormed as well. He is a friendly boy who just wants attention. He wouldn't stay still long enough for a picture except for when he was using his litter box.  https://www.rescueandadopt.org/adopt ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Mystery is a sweet but odd boy who would love a calm home where he can enjoy his golden years.  We hope he will have many golden years, since he is only 8ish!   Mystery was adopted out and returned through no fault of his own. He is a very loving boy who just wants to be near his people.  He sits at the door in his foster home and meows for someone to come pay attention to him.  The minute his foster people come in the room, he rubs all over them and purrs loudly.  You can pick him up and put him on your lap and he is a very content, happy boy.  We would love for M to have a real home to call his own. He is a sweet, but ODD boy, he has been in homes and fosters with other cats, but he seems to completely prefer being an only cat. He was adopted out briefly, but returned due to showing signs of aggression - yet after the intake for the return, we found he had a large wound on his back, so we believe he had a very negative experience with one or more of the other kitties. He also seems to be very nippy, and mouthy from time to time when he wants attention. Some say this is totally a main coon trait. He is definitely talkative enough to prove that he is a main coon (mix at least) lol He needs a forever family that knows the breed and understands that as an older kitty (DOB 4/1/11) he is going to need some meds for certain things as he gets older.  ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Randi & Randel & Ranni are lovers &  (mostly not fighters - they are kittens - they can play rough with each other). They are sweet and cuddly who came around quickly to humans after being rescued from the street. They would make anyone a wonderful furrever companion. Randel is the most photogenic and most outgoing and the leader of the pack. He also loves yogurt. Randy is a bit shyer than Randel but is very loving. He enjoys giving gentle nose kisses and paw taps. His foster has had a hard time getting a good picture of him!  Ranni is the shyest. She hasn't figured out how to tell her foster humans yet when she is super scared. The 3 siblings are not especially bonded and can be adopted separately. They would probably enjoy another cat sibling to play with though. They get along with cats and have been around young children.  They are approximately 13 weeks old (as of 11/21/2019) and are fully vetted (have had age appropriate shots/tests/rabies & have been spayed/neutered). ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Tatu is was feral born kitten at the Hanover colony who was caught at 6ish weeks old. She was not initially thrilled about the changes to her life. She has since learned to tolerate and even slightly enjoy being petted but is still very shy and unsure about it all.  Tatu went to a new foster family a few months ago to help her get used to more people. Yesterday (3/13), after a few months of hiding under the bed and not moving when people were in the room, Tatu (aka Ms. Puff) came out of hiding. She ate and groomed herself confidently in front of not only us but guests who were over as well! It will still take sometime for her to reveal her playful snuggly self (we know its in there) - its still huge progress! Her adoption fee is $125 and shes estimated at just about 9 months old. (Mid Jan 2019) She is a big girl! Possibly part Main Coon or Norwegian Forest somewhere in her heritage. (There is one large orange long hair kitty at the colony that could be her dad! ) Tatu is fully vetted: spayed, microchipped, tested and UTD on shots. She is ready to go! ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

They hadn't been to the vet in years, so when we picked him up 6/1/18 we got him UTD on vaccines and a physical exam.

Welcome to ASHA Sullly!! (1/5/2020) Sullivan was a stray Kitty on the streets. In August 2019 he was found battered and abused by some neighborhood hoodlum kids that had used him as a toy. Throwing him around and ended up breaking his right femur head. Shattering in the socket. Savy Street Cats took him in, got him vet care and the necessary surgery to remove the broken bone. He's been healing up and recovering beautifully. Yes he may sit a little funny now and then, but other than that he's a perfectly normal cat that loves to play, loves attention, is great with kids, calm dogs, and other cats. He can be vocal when he's hungry or wants attention. And definitely gives you an earful on a car ride. He's not bad to give a nail trim to tho! Outgoing and super sweet!! He's headed to Pet Value Laurel today to be one of our featured felines!   From Savy Street Cats:  Sullivan (Sully for short) was found in Baltimore City with a broken femoral head. He has had the surgery to repair it and has healed wonderfully, the hair has even mostly grown back from where he was shaved and he gets around like a normal cat would. The surgery was called a “femoral head ostectomy” We consider him a “special needs” kitty because he may or may not need extra help getting around when he’s old due to arthritis in that leg. Regardless of all he’s been through and living on the street injured for weeks, he was still as friendly as could be. He loves cuddles and is a giant purr box, you can hear him purr across the room! He LOVES sitting on the edge of the tub and drinking out of the sink. Sully is a little under a year old and looking for his forever family! ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!
