These cats have been through some extremely disturbing things and were lucky enough to survive to share their success stories!
(SOME of them are available for adoption and some have already been adopted. If you wish to adopt one of the survivors, please go to "Single Cats" below this to check if they are available!)
If you have a big heart, these stories are going to be hard. However, they deserve for their voices to be heard! These stories might help change someone's view on cats and what is acceptable as a morally responsible member of society and pet owner!
These catsare cats who need a special home due to disabilities. We believe every cat deserves a chance at a healthy life full of love, regardless of disabilities! They are extremely loving and loyal, and they just need that special someone to give them a chance!
These are cats who are ready to be adopted and looking for their furever homes! Most of these cats get along with other pets, are good with children, etc. But some may not be, so please read the descriptions on their pictures for that information!
Separating a bonded pair is very traumatic on any bonded cat. The cat will mourn the loss of their best friend, and unfortunately they can become depressed, and often times develop behavioural issues. This is one of many reasons why it is so important for shelters, rescues, fosters, etc., to adopt bonded pairs together regardless of how long they have to wait for a home.
Special needs cats are extremely special for many reasons! Do they take a little extra time, effort, and patience? Sure. But they make up for it in so many ways "normal" cats don't!
Special needs cats are very thankful, loving, and loyal family members! They rely on their family far more than most cats, which makes them bond quickly to their family. They also show how thankful they are for the extra love and support by returning it far more than the average cats! Many of them are big cuddlers, shoulder cats, conversation carriers, and window watchers because when their family is gone, they are just waiting for them to return and come running to show they missed them!
Special needs cats also have a significant positive impact on our mental health as long as we are up for the task!
However, if you are not up for the task, special needs cats are not what you are looking for! They can be needy and require a lot of attention, and they deserve for us to be honest with ourselves and be sure we are ready for all of that!
If that sounds like something you are ready for, please fill out an application! Often times they are the hardest to find a home for because people like YOU are special as well, and often times very rare!
Be sure to click or tap on their picture to read their descriptions! Some of them have special personaility traits that require just the right furever home, and it may just be you!
