ADOPTED!!! Toby and his Guardian Angel: Tiny Ginger Kitten Finds Safety in ATL, Available for Adoption

Four-month-old Toby doesn’t know it, but he’s had a guaradian angel watching him since he was a few weeks old.  In fact, Toby’s foster mother was waiting and watching for him for a long time before she was able to bring him to safety.  Our SNAP volunteer regularly feeds a colony of feral cats on Buford Highway, and often runs into friendly animals who, in a perfect world, should be cared for by a human family.  Are they abandoned?  Lost?  We’ll never know – but Toby’s mother caught our volunteer’s attention when she joined the feral colony at feeding time, looking for a square meal. Toby’s mother was social enough to enjoy being cuddled and held – and our volunteer was on the verge of taking her in when she saw that the young cat was actually nursing.  That meant that somewhere nearby, there were probably kittens in hiding.  Our volunteer didn’t know how many, or when she would see them, but she certainly could not take away the kittens’ food supply or protection.  So, she fed the friendly young cat, and kept going back. Within a month or two, our volunteer spotted two gorgeous kittens with the friendly mother, but was unable to trap them.  Ten days later, sadly, she spotted only one kitten…and realized that the other poor kitten most likely did not survive.  She was finally able to trap this handsome young man, now named Toby. Like his mother, Toby has lovely green eyes, and dramatic orange-on-orange markings that will become more intense as he grows in shades of pale pumpkin and deep burnt sienna.  His tiny muzzle is white, and the fur around his eyes is lighter too.  Toby has long white whiskers, a peach nose and peach paw pads, and alert, kissable pink ears! Toby’s best friend at his foster mother’s is named Maya.  He and Maya take turns chasing each other, conducting cat tree relay races, and batting catnip mice.  Toby is a relaxed kitten, as ginger kitties often are, with other animals.  He is shy with people at first, but his foster mother tells us that since he’s come out of his shell, he has taken over her apartment.  Toby’s favorite way to hang out with his foster mother is to lay on her tummy and talk to her while she pets him.  When she’s lucky, she even gets Toby kitten kisses. Since Toby is a kitten, it’s important that he be adopted into a home where there are other animals for him to hang out with.  His personality is somewhat reserved, so making sure that he is not alone in his new home takes on even more import.  Toby hasn’t yet been dog-tested, but his foster mother thinks that with a slow introduction, he would be fine.  Toby’s secret wish is that he be adopted with his best friend Maya! Like all SNAP animals, Toby is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and shots, and microchipped.  Toby and Maya will be moving into the PetSmart permanent adoption center at the Howell Mill & I-75 N. location in the middle of February, and can’t wait to meet you.  If you have questions or want to schedule a time to play with Toby, just drop us a note.  You can also pre-apply to adopt Toby online.  (as of...

(ADOPTED!) Tinker, Orange-on-Orange Fuzzy-Eared Kitten Seeks New Home in Atlanta

This handsome, frisky, young name is named Tinker.  He is a long haired Maine Coon / Forest Cat mix, with fur of multiple shades of orange.  His orange-on-orange markings ring his legs, dip downwards from his eyes, and circle his chest.  Tinker has long white whiskers and eyebrows, with warm peach paws and a peach nose.  He even has tufts of ear hair, the better to tickle him with.  Tinker is about 12 weeks old and like all curious kittens, enjoys watching the world with his deep amber eyes. He was rescued from animal control by a kind person who was sure that Tinker deserved a chance at life.  Tinker has grown into a typical kitten who likes cuddle and play, and then cuddle and play some more.  He’s very loving and enjoys his times with humans, and also gets along well with other cats.  His foster mother has a dog, too, and Tinker doesn’t mind the dog at all. If you’d like to meet Tinker, drop us a line.  You can also apply to adopt Tinker online.  He’s ready to join his forever home!  Like all SNAP animals, Tinker is neutered and update to date on all his shots. He is also...

ADOPTED!!!!  Ginger Siblings For Adoption: Meet Brutus and Brody, Atlanta area

Brutus and Brody, two little orange and white kittens, love to tumble and hide and chase and climb…then rest for a second and do it all over again.  They are high energy but full of affection, and love to be petted and snuggled.  They will nestle on your shoulder or in the bend of your arm, while they follow the movements in the room with big, wide, eyes.  Kittens Brutus and Brody joined the SNAP family after being born into care at Animal Control, and are now living at the PetSmart Howell Mill Adoption Center.  You can tell them apart because Brutus (who is definitely not a brute) has a white smudge on his tiny nose.  They both have lovely little white booties. Brutus and Brody are neutered, fully vetted, current on all shots and tests, and microchipped.  Because they are tightly bonded, they should be adopted as a pair.  They are ready to meet their forever family now, in time for the holidays!  Come by the PetSmart at I75 & Howell Mill weekend afternoons after 1 to speak with an adoption counselor, or stop by any time during store hours to view the kittens.  You can also apply to adopt...

ADOPTED! 1.5 Pounds of Kitten Love: Little Bit Needs a Foster

ADOPTED! 1.5 Pounds of Kitten Love:  Little Bit Needs a Foster

Every animal that SNAP helps is special – but sometimes, the unexpected ones work their way into our volunteers’ hearts that extra little bit more.  So it is with this tiny ginger girl, aptly named Little Bit. One of our SNAP volunteers was at a local clinic recently when a man brought in this tiny kitten.  He wasn’t quite sure what to do with her – but knew that she needed to be fixed.  However, she was far too small to be fixed, and also sick.  The man’s plan was to simply re-release her to the outdoors, leave her to Mother Nature’s devices, and hopefully re-trap her when she was old enough to be spayed. That plan was a no-go for our volunteer, since it would likely result in the cat’s death or injury.  She quickly took the tiny fur ball into her care and dubbed her Little Bit.  Little Bit settled instantly into our volunteer’s household and follows around the man of the house “like a dog.”  She is fully domesticated – not feral at all. In the next week or so, once she has been well long enough, Little Bit will need a foster home.  She loves to play with other kittens – but needs someone her tiny size!  If you’re interested in fostering or adopting Little Bit, drop us a line and/or fill out an online volunteer application. After all, everyone’s got room for a Little Bit more in their...
