Adopt George

Oconee Regional Humane Society
Greensboro, Georgia
Contact: or 706-454-1508

George prefers that you don’t think of him as a lap cat. Can’t a guy simply enjoy the company of humans and fellow felines, prove unfailingly friendly, and embrace the attention that comes with being incredibly adorable without getting a rep? Healthy and happy, George is a playful two-year-old who has only known life in a shelter. This cutie would love to find a loving family of his own.

Salt Lake City, Utah
Contact: or 801-355-7387

Exercise my body and my mind, please, says Frankie! This ebullient boy adores the outdoors — always up for swimming, running or playing. But Frankie’s also a bit of an intellectual — food puzzles and training games are among his favorite things, too. Frankie will thrive in a home where his person continues working with him to be as courteous and well-mannered as he is beautiful.

Adopt Patrick

Brown County Humane Society
Nashville, Indiana
Contact: or 812-320-2829

Sweet Patrick’s single act of defiance will be nudging you for additional ear scratches or head rubs. Otherwise, this cutie is perfectly content to lounge by the window, watching birds and squirrels exert all the energy. Because of Patrick’s unclear feline-leukemia status, he’s looking for a home where he’s the only cat. Check out Patrick on video!
