About April

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

Casio, Chevy, and Crystal were trapped along with their mother (Clarice) in mid-February 2019 from the Northern DC area. They were estimated to be about 12 weeks old. All three were very scared of humans. Casio was adopted first and took a whole month for him to come out of his shell at his new family's house. Now he loves the attention. Chevy never grew to trust humans and is a foster barn home. He enjoys the outside much more. Crystal moved to a new foster family at the end of March. She enjoys playing and pets once she is used to someone. She recently had her first snuggle session on the couch (initated by her - first week of June). She even took a nap! She still does not like being picked up but there are a lot of cats who never really like it. Crystal has made friends with the resident foster cat and dogs. They will sit together in the same cat tree. And on the same couch. She is also a great foster cat sister to younger kittens. She would love to go to a home that has a cat who enjoys snuggling and playing with another cat. ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Can you provide a patient, understanding home for a sweet cat who just needs time to warm up?   Gabi came to rescue at 8 weeks old as a feral born kitten.  She has now been with us for many months, bounced around to several fosters, adopted and promptly returned, looking for the right home to help her blossom. After 2 months with her latest foster, Gabi has learned to trust humans.  She enjoys being petted and scratched, she purrs loudly, she gives foster mom nose kisses, she licks foster dad, and she flops over for affection.  Gabi is litter box trained and not destructive or aggressive at all.  Gabi loves sleeping in cozy beds and watching birds outside the window.  She is very playful with her foster sister, Mel, and has been sweet with the resident cats in her foster home when they come into the foster room to see her.   We can't wait for Gabi to finally have a forever home. Update May 29: Gabi had a breakthrough! She went from not wanting to be petted to meowing, purring, flopping over, and can't get enough of petting and love!  She will still need a patient adopter but this proves she can be a very lovable cat with time.  June 17: Gabi spent many months at her foster family's home not wanting to let anyone touch her before she finally came around, but now she's a total love bug. She will headbutt you to let you know she wants pets, and if you stop before she's ready, she just comes right back for more.  ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

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?!

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?!

Onyx was one of several cats rescued by a Good Samaritan in mid-February 2019. They were found after they had been left behind by a previous renter with no electricity or heat in the home. :( That also means they had no food or water :(  This sweet boy will likely need 2-3 weeks to get comfortable in a new home. (Can you blame him? Humans abandoned him.) He will be sweet, but shy, until he comes out of his shell.  He will find places to hide (like under a bed comforter/sheets) and will be startled by noise and movement. He will need a patient adopter who understands he just needs time to adjust. He is ok being picked up but only after he is comfortable (otherwise he will do his best to escape). Onyx is very sweet and vocal once he is comfortable. He will drool and purr when happy. He distributes rubs generously. At two different foster homes there was a "switch that flipped" where he suddenly went from scared of everything to exploring (and into) everything. He is very playful, especially at night. Oh and he LOVES chasing the laser pointer.  He has lived with other cats at his previous home but may do better in a home where he is the only cat. He tried to assert his dominance at his foster home (with 4 resident cats) which resulted in him chasing all of them. He also did not enjoy being pestered by a kitten who wanted desperately to be his friend. He was initially patient with the first of many friend attempts (just walked away) but his responses got meaner as they persisted. (Kittens are fast and hard to catch.) He would probably be ok with an older cat or ones that are not interested in being best buddies.  The vet guessed Onyx was under a year but his foster thinks he acts more like a 2 year old cat. That just means his teeth were really good at assessment time. He is neutered, negative for kitty diseases, and UTD in shots. And did fairly well with nail clipping attempts! ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

These 4 kittens and their mommy Penelope are rescues from VA. Penelope came from an elderly couple who had more animals than they could handle. She gave birth to the four babies on May 4th. They just came up Thursday 6/13/19 and saw the vet Friday.  Momma was spayed and got all her vetting. She's a young momma, maybe a year to two old, is super sweet and will be ready for adoption when her kittens are 8 weeks old. The kittens got their first round and are super cute and playful! They are 6 weeks now so they have 2 more weeks before ready to go to forever homes. They will need booster shots and a second round of deworming 3 weeks from 6/14.

Quinn was turned into the rescue by a concerned feeder. She appears to have an old leg injury. She had been hanging out and eating food since at least winter 2018. She was posted to multiple lost and found sites but no one claimed to know her. She was not microchipped either :( Quinn is very friendly. She did well and even seemed to enjoy being held by her feeder. She only got antsy after being held for 10 minutes. She does well around the reader's small dog and didn't appear too stressed by several larger dogs she saw on the way to her foster home. (No obvious freak out anyways.) Quinn is estimated to be about 2 years old. She was recently spayed and is UTD on shots. She is very friendly, and calm, and would likely do well with younger children. She enjoys attention.  Quinn is currently a featured feline at PetValu Glen Burnie. ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Randy and Steve are a bonded pair of 2 year old male cats who were reluctantly returned to the rescue because of their family's ongoing health issues. They are both fully vetted, loving kitties that have their own unique personality. They must be adopted together. They are currently featured felines at PetValu in Laurel.  Per their previous adopters: The basics: Randy "Macho Man" Savage is a short haired dark orange tabby, around 13lbs, and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is a long haired lighter orange tabby, around 9lbs (guesses from our bathroom scale). They were born with ASHA March 25, 2017 (2 years old) as Felix and Freddie. They are microchipped, neutered, UTD on shots, and are indoor only cats. They are healthy with no known issues. Personalities: They're great with our 35lb dog (worst thing is they hide when she barks), and they love rubbing up on the baby's playpen and high chair (we haven't let them touch because of grabby fingers). I've only heard them hiss a handful of times (at the vet and a few times when their play gets too rough). They are both cuddle bugs (Randy always, and Steve will come get cuddles when he's in the mood), and they warm up to visitors within a few hours (they're very skittish, so definitely let them come to you). They've grown out of their kitten energy, but are still pretty high energy; they take turns chasing each other and still live up to their wrestling names! They both enjoy chirping at birds and bugs outside, and like to drink from the shower faucet. They're really curious, too, anything new needs to be fully inspected and approved. Randy is more outgoing while Steve is more hesitant, but Steve is the ringleader when he wants to be. They play with any and all toys, but Steve's favorite is plastic springs and Randy's favorites are things he can kick (stuffed toys big enough to hold); they'll both happily bat around anything, trash included! Logistics: Randy and Steve share a litterbox (large rubbermaid bin with basic Scoop Away brand litter) and food bowls with no issues. We free feed them hard cat food (Kirkland Maintenance Cat, usually 3/4c) and they share a can of wet food in the evening (Friskies and Aldi brand, a mix of flavors). Randy eats more than Steve, but lets Steve push his way to the bowl if he wants more. They share a basic water bowl with the dog. We've got a cat tree with sisal and carpet and 2 cardboard scratchers- they both use it all, though Steve prefers the cardboard and Randy the sisal. -------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!

Rogi was found wandering outside in Lutherville in early February. She is estimated to be about a year old. She is currently being treated for an ear hematoma and other normal outside kitty issues (ear mites, tapeworms). She is not yet fixed. Her foster says "Rogi is so friendly and loves to be loved. She is very playful and can get a little to excited when playing sometimes with her claws and gives love nips. She is good with kids and doesn't seem to be bothered by the cats she sees walking around her cage." Rogi is taking a break from Pet Valu in Glen Burnie at a foster home.  ----------- 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.

Winifred was a feral born kitty from a completely feral momma cat who was trapped during a TNVR effort.  She was born sometime around mid-April 4/14/18. They came in to ASHA at about 8 weeks old, spitting, hissing scared and angry little buggers. Winifred lived with a foster family who patiently worked with her until she began enjoying pets and snuggles from humans. She is still shy but enjoys playing and loves cat treats. She would would find cozy spots to nap in during the day (so keep your closet doors closed). Winafred was briefly adopted but was returned after a few weeks. Her adopter wanted to give her a chance because she looked like her old kitty. Unfortunately, Winafred was so shy she did not want to interact with her new human. She hid the majority of the time. (But always used the litter box!) Winafred had another potential adopter back out. She was friendly and enjoying attention right before someone tried to pick her up. She did not give that human permission so she lashed out.  Winifred will need a patient adopter willing to let her get comfortable on her own terms. This may mean an extended stay in a smaller "safe" space, such as a spare bedroom. And no attempts at picking her up until she gives permission. She enjoys head scratches most of the time but is moody. Generally a good play session after a mood swing helps calm her down and turn her back into the sweet kitty we know she is. ----------- Interested in Adopting a kitty?!
