ADOPTED! SNAP Rescues Tippy, Missoni and Piper: Adoptable Atlanta Kittens

A significant part of SNAP’s work is helping the community help feral and forgotten cats in their work and domestic neighborhoods. A good Samaritan in Austell recently set out to save a feral family in her neighborhood. She managed to corral the kittens into her garage – but they were so tiny, so quick, and so frightened that she could not maneuver them into cages even though they were in an enclosed space! With some help from Austell PetSmart employees, they managed to catch these kittens. SNAP stepped in and set up the woman with low cost spay/neuter resources for 1 additional kitten which she kept, as well as the friendly mother. SNAP has taken these three beauties – Tippy (a female tabico), Piper (a long haired black and white male) and Missoni (a handsome Maine coon mix) – into our program to help them find their forever homes. Tippy is a tiny girl who seems shy at first – but after you pet her, she will beg for more attention.  She has lovely tabby markings and the distinctive orange hue of a tabico.  She has dainty white socks, deep hazel eyes, and long white whiskers.  Like all well-mannered kittens, when she snuggles down for a nap, she curls her tail around her neatly.  Tippy is still getting used to humans, but would like to meet you at the  Howell Mill & I-75 PetSmart.  Tippy is very attached to her brother Piper and would like to live with him forever. Piper is a striking longhaired black and white male.  His fur is as soft as down right now; he will grow into a sleek, attention-getting handsome young man.  He, too, has white socks, deep green eyes, and white whiskers that stand out against his mostly black face.  He has a thick patch of white fur on his chest that will help him look like the distant relative to the noble lion that he is!  Piper is still getting used to humans, too, but is eager for attention and purrs beneath your touch.  He holds his tail high no matter where he is headed, and would like to find his forever family.  Piper loves to play, so he should be adopted with another kitten (like his sister Tippy!). Missoni would serve as the perfect addition to any fashion-conscious home with his striking Maine coon features and deep green eyes that watch everything around him.   Missoni has a white bib, flowing fur even as a kitten, and sweet white socks.  His fuzzy ear tufts are charming, and he loves to be petted on his head and behind his ears.  He is a cautious, watchful boy, since he is just getting used to humans.  Missoni’s fur is in typical Maine coon colors, with cream, chocolate, black and gray. You can meet any of these kittens at the Howell Mill & I-75 PetSmart, where they live in our permanent adoption center.  Drop us a line to find out more details, or apply to adopt them...

ADOPTED! Hanging with Adoptable SNAP Kitties on a Perfect Atlanta Autumn Day

Today was a gorgeous autumn day here in Atlanta, and it seemed like the whole town was out and about – including our SNAP foster parents who brought their SNAP wards to PetSmart to meet prospective homes. Oliver and Olivia are a tightly bonded male/female pair of siblings.  As you can see, Oliver is as black as night while Olivia is a chocolate point Siamese.  Our volunteers call them “Oriental twins” because they both have beautiful tilted eyes, well-sculpted faces with distinctive profiles, and delicate limbs.  Adopting these two would adding a piece of living piece of artwork to your home. Olivia’s eyes are pale blue, and Oliver, who we call the Black Pearl because he is incredibly soft – and rare – has lovely green eyes.  Oliver and Olivia must be adopted as a set. Today was the first day at PetSmart for Girlie and her two children, Angel and Andy.  They were trapped at the Red Lobster in Stone Mountain, and are being fostered by a SNAP volunteer.  They are all a little nervous at the attention, but show promising signs of becoming used to human handling.  Andy is a handsome orange male, and was very laid back (as evidenced by his mother, Girlie, using him as a bed most of the afternoon).  Angel is fluffy and will grow into a gorgeous multicolored long-haired love bug. Carl is a handsome, easy to love all-black male. He’s very affectionate and loves to sleep with his foster mother and foster cat friend Pringles every night.  Carl is about a year old, and is the last of his siblings to be adopted.  Carl and his siblings were rescued from an apartment complex when they were just a few days old, where they were found abandoned in a breezeway in a locked pet carrier.  Carl has come a long way since then, and is waiting to meet his forever family. Oscar just arrived into SNAP’s care.  Oscar was rescued by a loving family and well-taken care of; you can tell by how nicely he adjusted to strangers handling him and how comfortable he is with being petted and held.  Unfortunately, the family’s landlord changed their pet policies and they were not able to afford the exorbitant deposit and monthly charge, so they reluctantly asked us to find him a home.  Oscar met lots of nice people looking for beautiful kitties just like him today! Tiny Rae, who is our cover girl on the SNAP web site this week, is available for adoption, too.  Rae has wide-set gentle eyes, loves to play with her furry mouse and dunk it in her water bowl, and adores attention.  Rae was rescued from a trailer park where SNAP maintains a relationship with the caregivers.  This gentle buff kitten is active and curious, and pets your cheek with her paw if you look away for too long when she wants to play! A handsome foursome – Bobby, Pammy, Pip, and Paula – kept us entertained at PetSmart by lining up in perfect symmetry and watching the world go by.  These lovely siblings all have distinctive personalities and are waiting patiently to meet their forever family.  They have all been fostered together, and are very friendly, and adore being around humans. Even though he’s still a kitten, Andy is chillaxed and happy to watch what happens next. Andy and his sibling Angel and mother Girlie were rescued from a Red Lobster. Pretty Angel!
