This friendly, photogenic boy is called Adam.

I first met him last July after he'd been transferred to the sanctuary from the No. 5 Rd. with May, Moe, Hudson, and others. Even when he was just meeting me for the first time, Adam was comfortable and confident in greeting me.

He looked equally relaxed with his cat friends.

When I paid the gang a visit recently, Adam was every bit as handsome and engaging. He is very much as Leslie says: a lovely boy.


  1. What a handsome fellow! I wonder what his story is...it's so difficult to wrap my head around the fact that perfectly purrrfect cats like this sweet boy find themselves homeless! I hope he finds a forever home. He deserves a happily ever after!

  2. Don't forget Spidercat!

  3. I keep posting all these cats on my FaceBook page, hoping people will keep passing them on to others ...one day all these cats will find a good home..
    I HOPE...


  4. Thanks, Dianne! They really are lovely cats and could make some nice people so happy.
