Cats Available for Adoption


Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows. She is almost 2 years old as of February 1, 2017. She prefers a quiet household without dogs or young children for her forever home, although she does well with the other cats in her foster home. Her foster mom has decided that Luna would be a great companion for a person who is a night-owl; she is at her friendliest late at night and comes to be petted and share the couch.

Moe is little and mighty! He is a grey tuxedo/Russian blue mix, and boy, does he have the Russian blue genes! He loves to be held and cuddled. In fact, if he wants to be held and you are not paying attention to him, he will demand your attention by putting his paws on your chest, or jump into your lap! He never uses his claws, just his paws, to say "Hey Iím here, canít you see me?" After his naps he loves to play. He plays with two other cats in the house, as well as a big dog. Any little toy that will bounce or roll around is great to chase. He especially likes feathers on sticks that you wiggle! Mighty Moe is ready for his forever home. Will you be Mighty Moeís family?

Kobe is a stunning lynx-point Siamese--pictures don't do him justice. He's about a year and a half, and already a 12-pound boy. He gets along well with other cats, loves to play, either alone or with other cats, and will hop into an available lap for some loving.
More photos of Kobe.


Heidi is about a year old, very affectionate, and gets along well with other cats. She has an unusual tail--when she's relaxed, she can lay it almost flat across her back.
More photos of Heidi.


Midas is a sweet champagne-colored tabby with amazing golden eyes. He has turned into a total lap kitty who never wants his foster mom out of his sight. Midas loves to have his head and cheeks stroked and even likes his belly rubbed! Chasing the little red dot and his string toy are some of his favorite activities. Midas is looking for a nice, quiet home (loud noises are not his thing), maybe you have the right spot for him on your lap! He is 4 months old as of the beginning of September.

Amber is a black, spayed female with big amber eyes -- hence her name. She is a kitty with "attitude," who likes to be in charge. She's being fostered in a home with two male cats, and she pretty much rules the household. She had been abandoned by her owner, who left her in an apartment. She lived with a dog in that household, and had no problems with a large dog. Amber loves to play, both with toys and with the other cats. She doesn't like change; a new owner will need to give her a week or so to adjust to new surroundings. But once she is comfortable, she's a loving, delightful companion.

Katie is a 9-year-old calico kitty who is declawed on her front paws. Unlike some calicos, who can have a bit of an attitude, Katie is very sweet and affectionate and loves to be petted and held. She weighs a bit over 9 pounds and has a very soft, strikingly colorful coat. She probably would be most happy as an only kitty.

My name is Carter and Iím a beautiful light orange tabby with pale green eyes. I have very soft, silky fur and love being petted. Iím about 2 years old and weigh about 12 pounds. Iím a very confident, social and loving boy. You know Iím happy and in love when you hear me purr! Toys are great fun and I love those little squiggly plastic cat toys! My potty manners are excellent! I live in a foster home with six other cats and 3 German shepherds. I have adjusted very well to being an indoor cat. My foster mom has a sun porch that I can access from inside the house and Iíve gotten quite skilled at using the cat door. I love watching birds from the window and snoozing on the cat tree. I love to play and would be happier with another cat to play with. My foster mom keeps a bowl of fresh water in the bathtub, and I love to get fresh water there every morning. It is so much better than drinking out the same water bowl as the dogs.

"Do you believe in love at first sight? Youíve only seen my photo, and Iím already convinced that you will love me! My name is Isabella, and Iím a 9 years young Maine coon mix. I enjoy long toy chases through the living room and moonlit naps in my cat tree. I have dog and cat foster siblings with whom I love to nap. Nothing scares me, and I am friendly to every new person I meet. You should be warned, I am an extreme marathon snuggler! My foster mom says that I sometimes act more like a dog than a cat because I love to be around her all the time. I follow her while she cooks and cleans and sit with her any time I get the chance! So what do you think? Will you give me a chance to be your forever kitty?"

Noelle is a gorgeous, long-haired three-year-old cat with mesmerizing green eyes, a soft silvery coat, and a beautiful fluffy tail. When she first came to SARG she was a little nervous around people, but time and some loving attention have completely transformed her into an affectionate, sweet companion. She does fine with other cats and dogs, although she might do best with older children. Noelle is completely litter-box trained, and she even helps her foster mom when her mom writes on the computer! Won't you be the person to give this lovely cat the forever home she deserves?

Miss Kitty--CATV, Channel 9: My, you are a pretty little long-haired girl! I really think you have some Maine coon in your family history. How old are you? And is there a special story to how you got your name?
Rosemary: Iím a little over a year old as of now -- May 2017. And thanks for the compliment! I do think Iím rather attractive! Yes, my name came from St. Maryís Church in Oak Ridge. The SARG people found me when I was a starved stray in the church parking lot. My name is a combination of St. Maryís and rosary.
Miss Kitty: We hear that youíre an active little girl. Whatís your favorite activity?
Rosemary: My favorite activity would probably be eating. Before SARG rescued me, I thought Iíd never get enough to eat. But after eating -- probably playing. I do love fishing rod things, especially if a human is on the other end of it to make it move around. And I like supervising laundry and loading the dishwasher and also sitting on the screened porch watching birds and chipmunks. I sort of like to play with cats in my foster home, but most of them are older and donít want to play as much as I do.
Miss Kitty: What would be your ideal "forever" home? Any thoughts on that?
Rosemary: Oh, Iíd be happy any place where I can run and play, where I have toys, food, windows and laps -- I love human laps. I like other kitties too, especially ones that want to play. I havenít met any dogs yet, but Iím pretty easy going -- I think Iíd get along with them too.
Miss Kitty: Rosemary, we wish you much luck in finding your special forever home!

Looking for a stunning beauty of a cat? Picasso has fur so white it almost looks lavender and he has brilliant copper eyes -- very unusual in a cat. His long tail with the question mark at the end and the shape of his head indicate that he has Siamese or another Oriental breed as part of his lineage. Heís about three years old, gets along well with other cats, with children, and was with dogs when he was a kitten. Picasso LOVEs to play, and doesnít mind playing with toys by himself -- heís got energy to burn and just wants to run it off. If you want a smart, active, loving boy, Picasso could be your new kitty. After he gets used to new places, he hangs around the family, waiting to be part of all the action. He has another plus: heís deaf -- he wonít hear the loud TV or the kids shouting. Heís just serene through all of it.

Morris is a male orange-swirl tabby, and possibly a Manx mix, since his tail is only about 2 inches long. He is about 4 years old and was a stray in the Wear's Valley area who wanted to come inside. Morris does love to play with string, laser and toys; really loves catnip on his scratch box and toys. He was quite a wild child when he came to his foster home, but has calmed down and gets along pretty well with the other cats. He does fine with the dogs in the home -- two very large German shepherds. He does not like to be picked up, but does sleep on the bed and will cuddle. He likes to lie on a person, especially early in the morning. He loves being petted and does get in laps, but is a work-in-progress on becoming a true lap cat. He loves the cat tree on the sun porch and talks to the birds outside. He's a striking boy with his classic swirl tabby pattern in dark red-orange and his half-length tail.

Godiva is a very loving cat who loves to come and see what you are doing. She is 3½ years old as of January, 2017. She enjoys being petted, especially when you are reading or lying down. Godiva also loves to play with anything that has a bell or a feather. She will jump for the toys and come running when she hears the bell. She likes to be active and is naturally curious. Godiva has moved to Louisville, KY, with her foster mom. She is still available for adoption through SARG as always, but we can arrange a meeting with her foster mom in Louisville.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending


Emma with the dreamy amber eyes has a very sweet, gentle nature. She's about 4 years old as of January, 2017. According to Wikipedia, cats of Emma's coloration are believed to bring good luck in the folklore of many cultures. In the United States, these cats are sometimes referred to as "money cats." We cannot make promises of additional money -- only of a sweet, loving cat. Emma is shy in new situations -- she'll need some time to adjust to a new home. Although she's in a foster home with other cats, she prefers not to interact with them. We believe she's afraid of them, for the most part, although she has played with the kittens on occasion, and seemed fine with them. We feel she'd do best in a home where she's the only four-legged family member. In return, she'd give all her attention to you!

Marilyn Monroe
This gentle heartthrob is looking to steal someone's heart forever with her captivating beauty. She's a year old as of June, 2017, spayed, and up to date on shots. She gets along with everyone!!! She instantly wooed all her foster kitty family, and it took her just a few days to learn that her giant new dog friends are all pushovers -- she quickly stole the dogs' hearts as well. Miss Marilyn is a great explorer of all things up high. She loves to romp about the house, providing snuggles for the elderly kitties and much-needed wrestling and chases to the 2 younger gentlemen kitties of the house. Of course, Miss Monroe is also a fabulous singer, often going about her day singing a soft little tune!

Greta returned to SARG in 2014 at the request of her elderly owner upon his death. She lived in a long-term foster home and has now been adopted by her foster family. It takes time for her to trust someone, and she spends a fair amount of time hiding and observing, but she also purrs and loves to be petted. She loves her face, chin and back to be rubbed, although there are times she's content just being in the same room with you without interaction. Greta loves attention but does not love to share it, and usually hides when another animal is around.


Eeny is the lover of the litter. Our little Eeny has golden eyes and the beautiful silver coat of a Russian blue mix. He is a grey tuxedo kitty who loves to be held, fall asleep in your lap and be played with. Eeny purrs all of the time even when he is following you around the house while you are doing housework. He isn't super fond of dogs, but it only took a couple of days for him to get used to the foster's big labradoodle. Eeny wants to show you how much love he has to give.

Miney wants to play with everything! He plays and plays until he falls asleep in your lap. Miney purrs the minute you pet him and doesn't stop. He loves life and wants to explore all of his world. He hasn't met a human he doesn't like, but he isn't overly fond of dogs. However, he is getting used to his foster's big labradoodle. Miney likes to sniff your face and get really close to you. He will place his paw on you too -- as if to say "I'm here! pet me please! "

Pandora is a black, domestic-short-haired cat with gorgeous, deep-amber eyes! She is about a year old as of Septemer, 2017. She is very people-oriented and loves nothing more than to snuggle in your lap for hours -- but is also very playful and energetic, and gets along well with dogs and other cats. Pandora is extremely calm and friendly around strangers and is looking for the perfect home where she can share her love!

Simon is a sweet little black-and-white tuxedo boy who was born on August 14, 2016. He is a Siamese mix, although he does not have the Siamese coloring. He loves to cuddle and play. He always seems to be under foot rubbing on his foster mom's legs or quietly playing with his fuzzy ball -- his favorite toy! If he is not playing he is most likely found watching the birds outside the window, or he has fallen asleep watching those birds. He sleeps every night with the teenage daughter in his foster home, who just adores him. Simon is a very laid-back little kitty who would like a nice quiet life.

Garfunkel is Simon's brother. He has a lot of the Siamese coloring that Simon missed.


Li'l Bean
Picture an 8-week-old kitten peering in the window of a condo, hoping for food and shelter. That was Li'l Bean in mid-September in Knoxville. A nice couple rescued this Li'l Bean, who has now morphed into a Medium Bean and is moving toward a Big Bean -- a sweet tabby boy with white sox, a white face and a striking pink nose. Li'l Bean is very affectionate and playful, and he gets along with everyone. When he stayed briefly at a local boarding kennel, the staff let him have the run of the cat room, and have often asked when he could return! LB, as we call him, is fine with dogs, and is now being fostered in a home with lots of teenage activity. He loves it all. LB loves to cuddle up at night with the fosters' teenagers, and he loves to play with them during the day. This one-year-old boy (as of July, 2017) would be a great addition to any home. We do feel that LB would do best in a home with other cats he can play with -- he follows the other foster cat in the home everywhere and wants to play. We've had him out at one public event so far, and he got lots of attention because of his looks and his winning personality.

Goliath is about 2 years old as of August, 2017. He is very friendly and will come to you to be petted. He loves to tell you about his day by meowing a whole conversation. Goliath is good with other kitties because he plays well with his foster sister.

In the words of Jim's foster mom: "Jim the Lovable" is what he should be called! He loves everyone, even dogs! He is a large cat for his age (only 10 months) and based on size, temperament and the long tail, we believe he could be part Maine coon. He likes to be picked up only for a short minute, but if you are sitting on the couch or at the computer, he is quick to jump into your lap for a nice head rub. At night his bed is your bed and he is usually cuddled up against someone -- me, my kids, my husband -- he takes turns. Jim loves to play and he will sit next to his toy willing someone to make it move so he can chase it. I trim his claws regularly, which he does not mind, and he uses his cat tree to scratch. He has never used my furniture as a scratching post. He is very food motivated and comes when you say "treat"! If you are looking for a companion who will greet you at the door when you come home and cuddle at night, this is the guy for you! Jim the Lovable!

Anastasia Rose
This little lovely is a calico girl who is about 14 weeks old as of 12/9/13. She has a sweet round face--possibly indicating some British shorthair in her background. She's very loving and sweet--purrs and cuddles all around! We'll know more after she's been in a foster home for a bit.
More pictures of Anastasia Rose.


Lady Jane Grey Two
Lady Jane Grey Two is about 1½ years old. Her coloration is called "smoke," with a silver mane framing her black face. We think she might be a Maine Coon mix because of her ruff and her ears. Lady Jane is truly gorgeous. She gets along fine with other cats.

Camille is sweet, affectionate little female black and white tuxedo kitty--about 3½ years old as of November, 2013. She has medium to long silky fur, and is a small cat. Camille is what her foster mom calls "a serious lap kitty." But she's also a very active young girl who loves to explore at all heights. Camille can find all kinds of interesting places--like a kitchen drawer which she accessed from under the sink. She is in a foster home with other cats, and has no problem with any of them. Although she isn't in a home with dogs, she doesn't appear to mind the dogs when she's at adoptathons.
