Rescue Me ID: 17-08-14-00382Gracie (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you looking for a sweet, gentle companion? If so, I might be just what you are looking for. My name is Gracie, and an old-fashioned name of that sort suits me nicely, as I am a lady in the true old-fashioned sense of the word. I am a very pretty petite gray and white spayed Domestic medium-hair with claws. When I say petite, I am not exaggerating; I am only 7 pounds! But I'm not skinny; I'm just right for my size. I'm not entirely sure that I would call my fur medium-length; it is more soft and plush, somewhat like bunny fur. People say that I am a joy to touch. Let me tell you just a bit about myself. Being the lady that I am, I am not ... (Read More)at all pushy; as a matter of fact I am still feeling a bit shy and still prefer to retire to the back of my kennel behind my pillow where it's nice and quiet. But the other day when one of the Safe Place volunteers moved the pillow so that I could see out into the room, I decided to come out and investigate. It was really nice! There were toys to play with, chairs with pillows on them to lie on, and a pillow on the ledge next to the window where you can curl up and watch the world go by. But best of all, I was able to jump up to the top of the kennels and keep an eye on what was going on in the room. There are cozy cat condos up there as well. I have the feeling that once settle in a bit more, I am going to really enjoy spending time out there. The ladies that were visiting us that day were completely captivated by how friendly and loving I was. As I said, I'm not demanding, but I do very much appreciate being petted and cuddled. Do you think that you might like to pet and cuddle me? I came to Safe Place for Pets with my brothers and sisters because our dad died a few weeks ago. A very kind lady and her husband came and took care of us, but it wasn't a home without Dad, and we were all kind of sad. I would really love to find a forever home of my own where I can find love again. As I mentioned, I lived with my brothers and sisters, so I wouldn't mind sharing my home with another cat. By the way, although I said that I'm not pushy, I'm no pushover either. When one of my sisters hissed at me the other day, I hissed right back at her! I've never had anything to do with dogs, so I'm not sure about them, but we could try it and see. I really am a sweet, gentle lady and I'm sure that if you give me a chance I can win your heart. Won't you please come to the Welcome Center to meet me? You can contact Safe Place for Pets by email at info@safeplacepets.com or by phone (719-359-0201) to make an appointment to come see me. I'll be waiting. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-14-00381Joni (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, everyone! My name is Joni, and my dad says I was named for Joan of Arc, because we were both strong and brave girls! I am a spayed, 8-year-old, short hair, tortoise cat, with black, tan, and white accents'|and I also have white feet. Everyone comments on how pretty I am! I was rescued by my prior family as a very young and sickly stray kitty, who showed up on their porch about 7 %BD years ago on a very cold Easter morning. They took me in and helped me become a healthy, happy girl! I have just arrived at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center because my dad has gotten very sick over these past few weeks. When dad was well, I liked ... (Read More)being outside in our yard during the day and playing with the neighborhood children but always came in at night to sleep with him. But with so many nurses coming to our home lately to take care of my dad, I was too worried to come inside so I have been staying outside full time. I learned that 'it's a jungle out there,' especially when raccoons came during the night to steal my cat kibble! And it was lonely, since I am very affectionate, love being petted, brushed, and sitting in a warm lap, and having my family's company. The Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center is quite nice and I know I will be warm, safe, and well-fed while I am here. And the caring volunteers will be giving me (and all the other cats living here) lots of love and attention, but I also know this is a temporary home until a new forever family decides I am the one! Come to the Welcome Center to meet me and see for yourself what a great cat I am! Contact Safe Place for Pets by email at info@safeplacepets.com or by phone (719-359-0201)--I just may be that 'one' who is a perfect match for your family! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-14-00380Lady Gray (female)

Russian Blue    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello there. My name is Lady Gray, and I am the grande dame of our little family here at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. I am after all the eldest and most dignified of us all, so not one of my brothers or sisters would question my status. As for my physical characteristics, I am a five-year-old female spayed Russian Blue with claws. I have to admit that I like my food, so at almost 13 pounds I am a bit overweight. Not fat, mind you! I am pleasingly plump. As befits my regal heritage, I am an Aristocat. But I'm not one to lord it over everyone. I am actually very outgoing and relaxed. I have never met a stranger and am very happy to ... (Read More)be petted and scratched. Oh, and I adore being brushed! One of my quirks is that I really like feet. If you are sitting with your feet stretched out in front of you I will rub my face against them. I will even do that when someone is standing up or sitting in a chair! I am also very curious. I stayed with a very nice foster couple for a few nights before coming to the Safe Place Welcome Center. They thought that I might be happier in a room by myself to begin with. I soon disabused them of that idea! By the time the night was over, I had met their other cats, their dogs, and their 2 %BD-year-old daughter. Not one of them worried me. I may be an aristocat, but I am a laid-back one. I have been enjoying myself at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. It's very nice here, and the volunteers are wonderful about caring for us and giving lots of attention and love. But I would really like a furever home of my own to rule over. As you can see, I'm not picky about my fellow family members. Won't you please come to the Welcome Center to meet me and see if I might be the Lady that you have been looking for? You can contact Safe Place for Pets by email at info@safeplacepets.com or by phone (719-359-0201) to make an appointment to come see me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-14-00378Mittens (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Have you lost one of your mittens? If you have, why don't you come down to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center and see if I could be the one you lost? My name is Mittens and I am a two-year-old spayed lady with claws. I'm a beautiful girl with black and white markings and, of course, four white mittens! I've been an indoor gal all my life, so my medium-length coat is silky and soft. I'm a little thing, just under 9 pounds, but the nice doctor at Fillmore Animal Hospital who examined me said that I'm a perfect weight for my size. I'm perfect in just about every way! To tell you a little about the inner me, I am a sweetheart who just ... (Read More)loves, loves, loves people and attention! All you have to do is call me and I will come trotting up for some petting and scratching. I will even stand and put my front paws on your leg to remind you that I am here. I will also talk to you if I think you've forgotten about me. I am more than happy to curl up in your lap for petting and chin and ear scratches. I'll let you know when I've had enough by hopping down. I have to admit though that although I grew up with other cats, I'm not as keen about them as I am about people and am apt to hiss at them. I really think that I would be happiest in a home of my very own. I've never been with dogs, so I really don't know how I would feel about them. I have been at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center together with my brothers and sisters for a few weeks now. Our dad died in July after being sick for a long time and his friend and neighbor and her husband came every day to take care of us. But it was strange being by ourselves without Dad, and we are happy to be at the Welcome Center where we are loved and cared for by all the wonderful volunteers. The Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center is very nice, but I would love to find that perfect forever home and a family who will give me the all the love I could want. Won't you please come to the Welcome Center to meet me and see if I might be the Mitten that you've been looking for!

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-07-00229Snickers (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Do you like candy bars?%A0 If so, you ought to like me, because I'm Snickers, the Candy Bar Cat. I'm here at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center with my friend Patches and her son Freckles, both of whom you've already met. I think that they already mentioned that our dad is sick and can't take care of us anymore, which is why we're all three here at Safe Place. I was lucky to be with my dad. I don't really remember it, but Dad says that I was just a kitten when someone dropped me off in a kennel on his front door. He was known as the cat guru of the trailer park where we lived. Thank heavens for him! You can see from my pictures that, ... (Read More)like Patches and Freckles, I am a beautiful cat. I'm solid gray with four white boots, a bit of white on my chin, and lots of white on my chest and belly. I'm a four-year-old, indoor only, domestic medium-haired neutered male with claws. I'm a laid-back fellow and not much bothers me. I was lounging in the Welcome Center the other day when one of the other guy cats walked up to me and hissed at me. I just gave him a 'What's your problem?' look, which completely confused him. He just sat there and stared at me. I am also partial to dogs. Our dad had two dogs, so I grew up around them and we were good buddies! I am a friendly guy who likes people and loves to be petted and scratched, especially around my ears and chin. And if you give me a good brushing, we'll be buddies forever! It's nice here at the Welcome Center , but I'd really love to have a forever home. I'd be fine with other cats and dogs, but I'm not picky. I just want to be with someone who will love me and let me love them back. Won't you come by and see how sweet a Candy Bar Cat can be? You can call Safe Place at 359-0201 or email them at info@safeplacepets.com.%A0 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-07-00193Snowball (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! My name is Snowball - for obvious reasons - and I am a newcomer to Safe Place for Pets. I'd like to introduce myself, but first let's get the statistics out of the way. I am a two-year-old white (of course) indoor-only male neutered domestic shorthair with claws. My dad died two weeks ago, so my brothers, sisters and I need to find new forever homes. Some of us have already checked into the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center: my two sisters (Lady Gray, Gracie, and Mittens) and my brother Rascal and I. Our new 'temporary' home here in Manitou Springs is pretty full right now! I'll let the other three introduce themselves over the ... (Read More)next few days, but this is my day in the sun (Gosh, I hope I don't melt!), so let me tell you about myself. As you can see from my picture, I'm a good-looking guy. I'm pure white, but my eyes are green instead of blue, so you don't have to worry about my being deaf. Growing up around other cats, I get along well with them. As a matter of fact, the Safe Place volunteer who provides room service and housekeeping for us last night was touched when she saw Lady Gray and I giving each other nose kisses and head rubs. Lady Gray came to Safe Place a few days before I did, and we were so happy to see each other again! I'll tell you a little bit about my personality, but since the Safe Place folks don't know me too well yet, I won't let the cat out of the bag by telling you too much yet either. We all discussed it the other day and thought it would be fun to tweak their tails. I'm sure that they'll tell you more as I let them get to know me better. I will say that I'm a very friendly guy, not just to other cats, but to two-legged folks as well. I'm a bit shy at first , but I lose my shyness very quickly for tummy rubs. I know that not all cats like that, but I sure do! And of course, like any cat I like having my ears and chin scratched. And...more to come. At any rate, I would really love to have a forever home of my own. I've never been around dogs. I would love to have at least one other feline sibling, but I'm sure I could adjust to having all the attention to myself as well. Won't you come to the Welcome Center in Manitou Springs and meet me? You can call Safe Place at 719-359-0201 or email them at info@safeplacepets.org. I can't wait to meet you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-28-00236Freckles (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! My name is Freckles. Please don't ask me why my dad named me that, because as you can see from my picture, I am no freckle-face. What I am is a 12-pound, beautiful black and white, domestic medium hair neutered male with claws. I'm really only a kitten still; I'm just over a year old, but you would never know that to look at me. I am a big boy! I'm one quarter again the size of my mom Patches (who is with me here at Safe Place for Pets). My mom, my brother Snickers (who is also here with us), and I came to Safe Place because our dad is sick and can't take care of us anymore. My mom never met a stranger, but I'm a little shyer and ... (Read More)I'm kind of overwhelmed by all of the changes in my life, so I've been hiding out in my kennel here at the Welcome Center in Manitou Springs. Please don't get me wrong; I'm a real sweetie who loves to be petted and scratched and will purr for you, it's just that I'm still trying to get my paws underneath me. I'm an indoor cat, so if you open your heart and home to me I will always be around to love and ask for love in return. Won't you please come by the Welcome Center and meet me? You can call 719-359-0201 or email the Safe Place folks at info@safeplacepets.org to make an appointment to see me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-28-00234Patches (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Do you like pistols? Because that's what the folks here at Safe Place for Pets say I am. My name is Patches, and as my kitten Freckles (How the heck did he get so big??) said, I have never met a stranger and, unlike Freckles, I have no desire to stay in my kennel any more than I absolutely have to. As a matter of fact, as soon as the lady who came to get us from our dad put me into my kennel at the cattery, I wanted out again! I wanted to get busy exploring my new (temporary, I'm sure) home. I'll tell you more about who I am in a minute, but I guess you want the details. I am a 9-pound, 4-year old domestic short hair spayed female with ... (Read More)claws. Like Freckles and my other son Snickers, I'm an indoor cat. I'll let you decide what color I am. My dad calls me a calico, but the Safe Place lady who picked us up calls me a tortoiseshell-tabby mix. She says that she's never seen a cat with a coat quite like mine. I'm like a tabby, but my coat is brown and red, and if you look at me from above you'll see that I have broad bands of red across my back. I'm one of a kind! And I almost never made it past kittenhood. My dad rescued me when I was only about three months old. He came across a female (I'm being polite here) who had put me in a pillowcase and was about to smash me against a wall. Of course being the kind of person he is, he took me from her and brought me home to raise. He's been a wonderful dad, and it makes me sad that he is too sick to take care of us anymore. To get back to who I am, I am a lover. I want to be petted and scratched, and I will let you know exactly where I want it. If you stop before I am ready, I will tell you very clearly that you have unfinished business. As I said earlier, I like to explore. I especially like to be up high. One of my favorite places here at the Welcome Center is way up on top of the kitchen cabinets. But if someone calls my name I am quick to come down to say hi and get some loving. I may be small, but there's gunpowder in my veins! Why don't you come by the Welcome Center in Manitou Springs and meet me for yourself? I promise that you won't be sorry. You can call 719-359-0201 or email the Safe Place folks at info@safeplacepets.org to make an appointment to see me. (Less)

    Cookie and Miss Kitty here to introduce ourselves and stir your interest in adding us to your family! We recently lost our loving mom and are now adjusting to our new 'temporary' home at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. We are littermate sisters who are also bonded-we are each other's best friend and like to stay close to each other, and we will even share attention from our people! We are 8 years old, spayed, indoor-only, and have longish fur. Neither of us is too fond of being brushed, but if you show us the brush first, we will enjoy your attention for short brushing sessions! We do have a few differences, especially in appearance ... (Read More)(although we are both beautiful). I am Cookie-a 12-pound, snowshoe/ragdoll mix with blue flecked eyes-and I love to groom you with kitty kisses! And I am Miss Kitty-a 9-pound, long-haired, tuxedo with gold eyes-and I tend to be very cautious in new settings but will warm up to you with lots of conversation and petting! We are quiet and reserved kitties, who have lived with other cats and get along with them, but we have had no exposure to dogs-they will likely be too exuberant for us! To learn more about us and meet us, contact Safe Place for Pets on the web (safeplacepets.org) or by phone (719-359-0201)-let's work together to turn our 'temporary' home into a fur-ever home with you!

It's quite nice for a temporary home, but we are really looking forward to finding a new forever home and family soon. I am a 5-year-old, 12-pound, neutered male with shiny black fur ...

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Dogs 
Personality: Very High Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! My name is Sweet Pea. I am a petite black kitty with a few white hairs on my chest, side and back. I am around 2 years old, spade, and still have my claws. I have had one litter of kittens and was a very good first time, young mother. (Kiko is my daughter, in case you are looking for 2 cats.) I am somewhat reserved and will ask for attention when I need it. I am good with other cats and children but have never met a dog that I liked and used to chase them out of my yard. Contact Safe Place for Pets for a meet and greet.
