Cats Available for Adoption
Miss Kitty--CATV, Channel 9: My, you are a pretty little long-haired girl!
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
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

Pandora is a black, domestic-short-haired cat with gorgeous, deep-amber
eyes! She is about 6 months old as of March 29. 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.

This gentle heartthrob is looking to steal someone's heart forever with
her captivating beauty. She's around 7 months old, 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!

Meet Carter! He's an orange tabby, about seven or eight months old as of
mid-December, 2016. He is a happy, sweet boy who gets along well with all
the large dogs, cats and people in his foster home. He was found in Carter
County, hence his name. The SARG fosters who found him just couldn't
leave him there, so they popped him into their camper and brought
him home. Carter loves to play with toys. He is adjusting well to being
an inside cat.

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.

Noelle is a beautiful, gray, long-haired cat with incredibly soulful,
large green eyes. She was a bit skittish when we first found her as a
stray, but she has calmed down so much. Now she loves to be petted,
and she purrs constantly when you give her some attention. Noelle does
very well in her foster home with other dogs and cats, but she is still
a little shy with sudden, unpredictable movements and boisterous
activity, so she probably would do best in a house without small
children. This lovely cat with movie-star looks is just waiting for her
forever home. If you think she might be the perfect match for you,
please let us know so we can give Noelle the permanent home she richly

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending
Our boy Quincy is barely a year old, if that, according to our vet. One
would never guess it to look at him. He fills a carrier -- a very long
(although thin), shaggy boy with a long, fluffy tail. His feet are large
and furry, with fur coming out between his toes. And heís a sweetheart.
Quincy likes other cats, doesnít seem to mind dogs, and loves people.
When he was in isolation when he first came to his foster home, he
literally pounded on the door to be admitted to where the people were
hanging out. Although one never knows the genetic background for
kitties, itís certainly possible that Quincy has some Maine Coon in his
background: big, furry, and friendly!

Bear is the cutest ball of fluff! At only 8 weeks old (born around January 28) and less
than 2 pounds, he is super playful. He is a smoke-colored domestic longhair. Bear gets
along well with dogs and other cats.

Paddy is a big kitty with an even bigger personality! He is a declawed
grey tabby about 4 years old, with big, beautiful green eyes. His favorite
pastime is playing fetch! And
he is better than any dog you've ever seen! He will drop his toy mouse
right in your lap! He follows his foster mom around all day and will
come when she calls him for treats. She says Paddy makes her laugh all the time
with his funny antics. He loves to get into boxes and small places! He
is a beautiful kitty that needs a loving home.

Meet Brody! This green-eyed, three-year-old, declawed brown tabby is looking for a
new home. His last family moved from their Knoxville home and left him
to fend for himself, but the neighbors cared for him until SARG could
take him. He's a friendly, sweet boy who loves people and gets along
well with the two cats in his foster home.

Born April 2015, Simba is about 1½ years old as of December, 2016.
He's a long-haired champagne boy with a fluffy white bib and a long,
fluffy tail. Simba has spent time in a home with children, including a
toddler, and has lived with other cats. Although he hasn't lived with
dogs, he seems fine with them when he's met them. Simba loves to be held
on his back, and want to hang around with the folks. He can be a talker,
especially when he's in a new situation. Simba would be a great addition
to a family who wants a lovable, regal feline friend.
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
7-month-old boy (as of 2/1/17) 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 9 months old as of April, 2016. 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!

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.

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.
