Anyone in VA need a kitty - serious
2 Attachment(s)
Every year at this time a dozen or so ferrell kitties show-up at our house. Last year I took 5 to the SPCA (no kill), but they really fuss when you bring in kittens b/c they have so many. Thought this year I would try to find them homes on my own...This little girl in particular is sooo human friendly she will not make it on her own. I cannot keep her as I am allergic, hubby doesn't like cats, and we have 2 dogs that give chase.
I am in the C-ville area and would love for her to go to a loving indoor home that will take wonderful care of her. She is too cute (and I'm not even a cat person). If anyone is intersted please let me know

Oh, what a beauty.
Too bad my stepdaughter no longer teaches at UVA -- she's a total cat person.
Could you try posting a notice on the faculty bulletin board? Or the student union?
Hope you find a great home for her soon.

She is a doll... I can't as I can only have 1 pet where we are... I'd keep it up here and try putting it up on pet

I thought of petfinder guess I'll go check it out...figured I would hit up the wonderful VA knitters and all my coworkers first....she followed the hubby around the yard all evening. He was out finishing our deck and I came in to get some cleaning I couldn't take her meowing anymore - it tugs at the heart strings. Even the non cat loving hubby said "Oh there's no doubt she adorable."
I could cry as I sit here watching my dogs sleep on their beds thinking about her out there all alone tonight. Hopefully she'll hide under our deck and I can feed her tomorrow evening - maybe I'll put a small cat carrier (used it when I had rabbits) out there for her to sleep in....

Oh my goodness what a sweetheart, I wish I was in the area! I hope you have luck finding her a wonderful, loving home!

Sadly, I can't take her even though I am in VA and would love to. If you have no luck on petfinder, I also suggest signing up (it's free) for and making her a page and saying that she is up for adoption. There are TONS of cat people there who are looking for family additions.

I think the suggestion about the UVA faculty and staff bulletin board is good, too.

She's beautiful! Since she loves people she should be with people who will love her. I wish I could take her!

i would also out a notice up at your vets (or any other vets) in the area saying she's up for adoption.

if i was in america i would def have taken her as i take in feral cats/kittens. i actually got my dog from pet finder so know its great.

shes georgous though, looks exactly like one of my ferals from last year.

good luck

Ooh, what a pretty kitty! I hope you find a wonderful home for her!

If you can take her with you to the vets, a lot of times one of them will take her right then, trust me, I used to work at one....
