HANSEL AND GRETEL
Once upon a time, there lived 2 baby kittens. Hansel, an orange/buff
medium-haired little man, and his sister Gretel, a medium-haired muted
tortie. They had a rough start and became lost in the woods without any
bread crumbs to find their way home at the young age of 5-7 weeks.
Without bread crumbs for food or guidance, they both became extremely
malnourished. Little Hansel weighed only 4 ounces and even lost the use
of his back legs. Gretel was in much better shape at 1.25 pounds.
Luckily, with her loving encouragement and determination, after
a while they happened upon a mysterious house filled with treats
in the middle of the woods. This house of treats wasn't occupied by a
bad witch, but a good witch and her husband. Their hosts knew how dire
the situation was, and they did everything within their magical powers
to bring Hansel and his sister back to health. Little Gretel bounced
back quickly with lots of snacks and meals. Little Hansel needed much
more hands-on care. He almost didn't pull through, but the couple was
able to bring him very slowly back to health with luck and with his
sisterís loving support. Soon he was regaining the use of his tiny back
legs. After a while, the two kittens were finally able to meet the rest
of the houseís furry members. The home was filled with 8 other kitties
of all ages. The oldest, gentlest, and wisest kitty had been able to
join them sooner than the rest, and he taught them all about kitty ways.
The home also had 3 large, scary beasts they called dogs. After a while
the kittens learned to trust these rowdy big protectors, brother much
sooner than sister. Hansel now has full use of his back legs. He is
daring and adventurous, with the heart of a lion. Gretel has a strong
personality and keeps her brother in line. She is more cautious, but she
warms up quickly to new friends and situations. They are about 7 months
old as of December 2017, and they are now looking for their happy ending
and a new, treat-filled forever home. They can be adopted as a pair or
individually, but they would love to stay together. Both are up to date
on all shots, altered, microchipped, and fully vetted.

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.

If you want a cat with loads of personality, then Heidi is the cat for
you. She loves to play -- especially if it involves chasing around the
room with a sock (who needs expensive cat toys?), but she also loves to
snuggle in bed with you at night. Heidi likes to help you with the
computer, and she often adds to your emails with her own original
compositions when she walks across the keyboard. Heidi is fine with
other cats and is ok with dogs, but would probably do better in a
dog-free house. She is great about using the litter box. As you can see
from the photos, Heidi has beautiful white and orange coloring, riveting
green eyes, and a very unusual tail which lies almost flat across her
back -- adding to her adorable quirkiness. Heidi is probably not the cat
for you if you are bothered by loud purring, which she will do whenever
you give her some attention. Please help her find the forever home she
is waiting for.

Rosemary is about 1½ years old. If youíve ever had a calico, you
understand Rosemaryís temperament. The vet calls her "saucy."
She loves being around people. She is not a lap cat but loves to hang
out with you wherever you are. Whether you are working on the computer
or sitting on the couch reading a book, Rosemary is sure to be there
sitting next to you. She really loves attention and would do well in a
home where she would get a lot of human interaction. We think she is
part Norwegian forest cat. The cold weather is no deterrent to her
spending time on the screened-in porch.

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.

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.

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?

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

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
Ho! Ho! Ho! Meet Holly, SARG's 14-week-old calico kitten (as of 12/14).
SARG got Holly when she was hit by a car, rescued by a good samaritan,
and taken to a nearby vet. A few abrasions and a missing tooth--that's
all this little girl received from her collision with that car. One
lucky, sweet little calico girl is searching for her forever home during
this holiday season. Holly is understandably skittish after the
accident, and will need a loving family who will be patient with her as
she learns to trust again. She loves dogs, but is a little less crazy
about other cats. Will you be her new forever family?

UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN
Molly Brown was adopted as soon as she came to us!
Gypsy had been put out to fend for herself for days at a time by someone
who left her with no food, water or shelter. A good Samaritan brought
her to SARG. Gypsy is a Seal Point Siamese (mix?) & is about 10 months
old as of December 2016. She's very sweet & lovable & will even ride
around the vet's office on the shoulders of the staff.

So, Katniss, a house must be quite a change from the shelter. Whatís impressed
you most since you arrived here?
Why, the wide open spaces for me to romp and play!
Caesar: That is
the great thing about houses! Tell us a little more about yourself and how
you found yourself at the shelter.
Well, my momma was a feral cat who gave birth to us right at
the shelter! I am 5 months old now and thought I was going to be in that
shelter forever. But then SARG selected me to play in the Foster Games!
Caesar: How are you
coping with this incredible new experience?
Katniss: I have three wonderful foster doggie sisters and two foster
kitty siblings who donít faze me at all. I love to chat with my foster
parents; I can talk all day long! I am still learning how wonderful it
is to sit on laps and play with big dog friends, itís so much to take
in! But it doesnít bother me. I hit the ground running (and playing) as
soon as I got here and plan to continue to do so until I win these games
and get a forever home!
Caesar: I bet you did! Sorry weíre out of time. Best of luck, Katniss,
kitten from the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter.

Midas is a super-sweet, champagne-colored kitty with amazing golden
eyes. He loves to cuddle any time of the day, but is also up for chasing
the little red laser dot or a string feather toy. His favorite position
is being held like a baby so you can rub his belly. Sometimes he even
gets under the covers to cuddle. Midas likes other kitties and gets
along great with the fosterís large labradoodle. The Lab licks Midas all
over every day and Midas purrs while he is doing it! When the dog gets a
treat, Midas is right there waiting for his treat too -- even sitting so
nicely! Midas is a little shy around strangers until he gets to know
them. If you are looking for a pair of kitties, Midas and his littermate
Moe have been together since birth and are great playmates. They are 6
months old as of the beginning of November.
More photos of Midas.
A video of Midas.
Moe is so funny he could be the next internet sensation or therapy cat!
He is a grey tuxedo, Russian-blue mix who loves everyone. He will run
around in circles chasing his tail until he is so dizzy he falls over.
He sleeps with his tongue hanging out, and sometimes you can catch him
with it out while he is awake. Moe has the biggest personality his
foster mom has ever seen. He loves to be held like a baby and have his
belly rubbed. He will jump up to you as well to get more attention. Moe
will greet you when you come home by running to the door and flopping on
the floor -- like a dog -- to have his belly rubbed. Moe is a constant
source of entertainment for his foster family. He gets along great with
their big labradoodle as well as the other cats in the house. He even
comes when you call treats. If you are looking for a wonderful pair of
kitties Moe and his littermate Midas are well bonded and entertain each
other all day. Both are super, cuddly kitties. They are 6 months old as
of the beginning of November.

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.

LADY SABLE and SIR FLUFF-A-LOT
As of 10/31/17, SARG rescued two tiny kittens, now available for
adoption. They were found at the Oak Ridge garbage dump and taken to
the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter. We believe they may be Maine coon mixes.
They are between 4 and 6 weeks old, according to our vet. They are in a
foster home, and weíll have more information shortly about each of them.
Theyíve checked negative for feline leukemia and FIV and have received
two rounds of RCP shots. SARG will provide their rabies shots and their
spay/neutering when they are old enough, even if theyíve been placed in
an adoptive home before then.
Lady Sable weighs 1.5 pounds as of 10/31/17. Her fur is very long, fluffy and
dense and is a mix of gray and sable brown. She loves to be held.
More photos of Lady Sable.
Sir Fluff-a-Lot weighs 1.1 pounds as of 10/31/17. He has long and fluffy,
silver-colored, dense fur. He is willing to be held, but he looks for his sister for
comfort at this point.
More photos of Sir Fluff-a-Lot.
"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?"

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.

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

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!

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.
