Cats Available for Adoption
This is Frank Sinatra aka "Frankie," a one-year-old flame-point Siamese.
He was abandoned when his owners were evicted. He seems like a friendly,
happy boy -- doesn't mind dogs barking all around him. We'll know more

Amber (age 8) only wants one thing in life: a person of her own. When
Amber was abandoned in an empty apartment, SARG stepped in. She's been
in a foster home since then. The foster mom loves this little girl, but
Amber wants and needs a person of her own. In her foster situation, she
has to share a person with several other kitties. Amber wants her own
place, her own person. She could share with one (maybe two). If one calls
her to come for attention, she comes on the run, burbling her excitement
(and occasionally drooling...just a little bit!). She talks as long as
she's being petted, turning and rubbing against her person. And when no
other cats come around, she'll settle down, cuddling close to her human
friend to sleep. But when another kitty arrives, that's Amber's signal to
walk away. Amber is able to live with other cats, and she lived with a
dog before she was rescued, but she needs a loving person of her own.

Eva is a striking white girl with one blue eye and one amber eye.
Despite being all white, she is not deaf. She had been adopted but has
returned to SARG because of allergies in the home. She's a real little
lover as well as gorgeous -- and she loves to pose for the camera! She
was born in the spring of 2018, one of three siblings who were strays in
Morgan County. One of the siblings was killed by a predator, but Eva and
her brother were taken in by SARG.

Wall-e is the class clown. He is a 2-year-old, medium-haired grey tabby
with a huge plumed tail! We believe he is very hard of hearing. But what
he lacks in hearing he makes up for in personality. Since he doesn't
hear the vacuum, he loves to chase it and also be vacuumed by it! His
foster mom often comes into the kitchen to find Wall-e lying on his back
with his feet sprawled out behind him -- affectionately she calls him
"dead kitty" -- but he is just asking for a belly rub! Wall-e
loves attention and will follow you all around the house. He gets along
well with other cats, and dogs don't bother him a bit. In fact, Wall-e
loves dogs and barking doesn't bother him at all. If you are looking for
a kitty that will make you laugh, look no further, Wall-e is the kitty

Bagheera is a 2-year-old male domestic long-haired cat looking for a
forever home! A true panther at heart, he loves sitting in windows and
stalking squirrels! He loooooves people and is very tolerant of dogs,
but would probably be happiest as an only cat.

Ebony is a very sweet, short-haired black cat. She is a one-year-old
polydactyl with a stub tail (possible Manx mix?). Polydactyl cats have
been popular among sailors as ship's cats and are thought to bring good
luck at sea. They are also known as Hemingway's cats since he became
fascinated with them after being given one by a ship captain. He named
her Snow White and she had numerous kittens, about half of which were
polydactyl. As Hemingway wrote in a letter, "One cat just leads to
another." Even if you are not a sailor or a famous author, Ebony
could still be the cat for you.

Gentle, sweet-natured Bonnie has been nurtured and treasured by her
senior companion for this kitty's whole life. Bonnie has lived with her
elderly companion in a nursing home for a couple of years, but sadly,
her companion is struggling with dementia and is no longer able to
provide the care that Bonnie needs. This middle-aged kitty (age 10)
loves to snuggle in her hand-crocheted blanket made by her owner.
Although Bonnie would probably be happiest as an only pet, she can learn
to adapt to dogs -- even large ones, particiularly when they are older,
quiet dogs. Bonnie is a beautiful, sweet kitty looking for a new family
and a new home. She'll reward you with snuggles, gratitude, and love.

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 you've ever had a calico, you
understand Rosemary's 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.

My name is Carter and I'm a beautiful light orange tabby with pale green
eyes. I have very soft, silky fur and love being petted. I'm about 2
years old and a big boy -- I weigh about 17 pounds. I'm a very confident, social and
loving boy. You know I'm 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 I've 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.

Video of Carter playing with Morris.
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
Han Solo is a 5-month-old, grey-and-white tuxedo kitten with a wonderful
personality. He is the right mix between playful and cuddly that
everyone is looking for. He loves to sleep by your side at night and
cuddle up for a nap on your lap while you watch tv, but when the red dot
makes an appearance he is all play, chasing that little dot until he
falls over tired. Han loves his water drinking fountain, drinking out of
it and playing in it as well. He is very tall for his age and we believe
he will be a tall thin cat. Dogs don't seem to bother him and he is
friends with all other cats. He will make a great addition to any home.

Are you looking for a Maine coon mix? This handsome MC boy might just be
what you're looking for! Shamrock came to us near death after a severe
mauling by another cat or another animal. He was a stray, taken to the
local shelter, and then immediately to a nearby vet. No one expected him
to survive. But he did. So we named him Shamrock -- for luck. This boy
is a fighter, and now he'd like to find a forever indoor home. He loves
people, loves attention, loves to play. He accepts other cats and is
tolerant of dogs. We consider him a special needs kitty because he's FIV
positive. However, the most recent research about putting FIV and
non-FIV cats together shows that the two types can co-exist well with no
danger to the non-FIV cat. You can read the results of a recent study
here. And if you
already have an FIV kitty, Shamrock could be the perfect companion for
your cat. He's about five years old, so he has a lot of years left --
even if he has used a couple of his nine lives!

My name is Binx. I'm a big, loving, short-haired tabby boy,
approximately 8 years old and weighing 15 pounds. I'm affectionate--I
love to be petted and kissed on the head, and I enjoy spending time with
my human peeps! I'm a talker and absolutely love playing in a water
fountain. I love looking out the window where there are so many
fascinating things to see! I prefer a home with no other kitties. I get
more attention that way!
My foster says: Binx loves spending time with
us on the sofa in the evenings. Once he gets all comfy he'll roll over
on his back and stretch out, it's hilarious!! He has A LOT of
personality and is VERY affectionate. He desires to be in the same room
with you hanging out whether you're cooking, eating, or watching TV.
Usually if I lie down on the sofa he'll jump up and lie down in front of
me and go to sleep. He truly just desires to be loved and to feel safe.
If you're carrying anything in your hands and walking toward him, he
sometimes becomes uneasy. If he gets scared for any reason he'll run
under the bed and hide until he feels safe again. He loves his water
fountain!! He'll bite at the water coming out, stick his head sideways
and lick the water coming out, or put his paw in the stream of water, then
bring it up to his mouth. I laugh every time I see him do it. If you are
interested in adopting Binx from SARG, please call Jan Baker
612-382-2832 or Angie Chance 423-384-4658. Large, covered litter box, pet
bed and water fountain are included with adoption.

I'm so little! Only 1.5 pounds! I'll fit in your hand and I love doing
that. They named me Chewy because I'm so fluffy and cute! And I love to
cuddle, so that's an added bonus. I'm only 6 weeks old as of 11-5-2018
and I'd love to find a forever home with someone who would cuddle me and
play with me too.

Milo -- named after the kitten in the movie, "Milo and Otis"
was discovered at a nearby park, alone, emaciated and covered with
parasites and black oil of some kind. The folks at the animal shelter
were not sure he would survive, but Milo is a tough little creature, and
he is now thriving. Milo is about 8 months old, has a lovely soft
champagne coat, is wonderful at using the litter box, and is great with
dogs and other cats. He is curious, into everything and extremely
entertaining to watch. But most of all, he is a lap-cat. He will just
jump into your lap and lie there, purring contently. This is a bit of a
problem if you need to get up, but a very sweet problem to have. Please
consider opening your home and your heart to this very special young

Baxter is a handsome, declawed, ginger Maine coon who loves being
petted. He is 8 years old, super friendly, and wants to be around people. He is ok
with other cats and previously lived in a home with small children and a
dog. During the routine vet check, it was discovered that he is
diabetic. He is now on a special diet and gets an insulin shot twice a
day. His foster mom reports that giving him the shot is easy. It's much
easier that giving a pill to a cat. He gets the shot in the scruff of
his neck while he's eating. He doesn't even flinch.

George is a grey tabby, about 13-15 weeks old as of 9-14-18.
George loves to slither and flop until he finds the perfect spot on your
chest to snuggle. Especially after he's had a good play session of fetch
with his favorite sparkly crinkle toys! Yes, he actually carries the toy
back and drops it in his foster mom's hand to throw! He's not much of a
talker, but when he does use his voice, it's the prettiest trilling
sound! He's always happy to see his foster mom, and no matter how
playful he is, he's very gentle with his teeth and claws.

Elsa is about 7 months old and was a stray found in Oak Ridge. We know
that her mom was a Siamese, so she is a Siamese mix. She is great with
dogs (see her gallery), friendly, and doesn't mind being held. Her
foster family's pit bull mix, Zoe, has claimed her as her own.

Celine, named for Celine Dion, is a 2- or 3-year-old Himalayan who has
spent her life on the street until now. She is a polydactyl with extra
toes in front. This sweet girl ended up a mommy several times. Now she's
spayed, has her shots and is ready for a protected life as an indoor
kitty. She's a beauty and just as sweet as she is pretty -- she is a

Flash is a flashy black boy with a white star on his chest--a very
friendly boy who wants to be held. He was born in the spring of 2018,
one of three siblings who were strays in Morgan County. One of the
siblings was killed by a predator, but Flash and his sister were taken
in by SARG.

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?

THOR AND WONDER WOMAN
Thor and Wonder Woman are 6-week-old siblings (as of 7/19/18) from rural
Knox County. Thor is a cuddly little boy who just wants to be held and
loved. Wonder is a striking dilute calico with unusual markings. She's
independent, but loves cuddling with people or siblings. Her foster mom
says "Wonder is having a blast. She plays and plays then wants to sit on
me and sleep. She wants to be where I am always. She loves playing with
feather toys and entertains herself for hours. She loves affection when
she's ready to rest and wants to sleep next to her person. Her favorite
activity is watching YouTube cat videos on the cellphone. She's a lot of
fun to have around."
