Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some furry felines near you? There are dozens of great cats up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Seattle.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of cats currently available for adoption.
(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
Tigress, domestic shorthair mix
Tigress is a female domestic shorthair mix being kept at Friends of the Animals Foundation.
Tigress is a social butterfly, and she's happy to keep company with other cats. She's already spayed, and she has had all her shots. Have no fear: She's already house-trained.
Notes from Tigress' caretakers:
Two-year-old Tigress came to us via Rescue Express from Southern California. Tigress had a very good feline friend in her California foster home, so she should be fine with other friendly cats. She is sweet, affectionate and alert. She moves her paws up and down in a kneading fashion whenever someone pays attention to her. Tigress is currently staying at Petco in West Seattle while she awaits a home.

Kay, domestic longhair mix
Kay is a male domestic longhair mix currently housed at Emerald City Pet Rescue.
Kay will get along great with your other cats. Emerald City Pet Rescue, however, recommends he be placed in a home without small children. He is vaccinated and neutered.
From Kay's current caretaker:
Originally from a hoarding situation in eastern Washington, Kay is now searching for a loving foster home in the greater Seattle area. After lots of medical care, Kay is feeling like his best self. He is an expert snoozer and likes to cuddle in plush beds, but also gets zoomies and entertains all of us while he bats around toys and climbs cat trees. Kay is selective with his cat friends, and prefers low-key felines who respect his space. He would do best with no children; we are unsure how he is with dogs at this time.

Sassy, domestic shorthair
Sassy is a female domestic shorthair cat currently residing at Seattle Animal Shelter.

Sassy's current caretakers say:
Sassy is a sweet, senior lady seeking a mature, forever home where she can be your one and only four-legged furry family member. Sassy has stage two kidney disease, but does not let it slow her down. She is playful and likes to chase string toys. She is also affectionate — she gives head butts for attention and loves pets around her head and neck. Sassy has a gentle meow and soft purr.

Stella, domestic shorthair
Stella is a female domestic shorthair cat being cared for at Seattle Animal Shelter.
She's already been spayed.
Notes from Stella's caretakers:
Meet Stella: a gentle, friendly and affectionate kitty who loves head and cheek scratches. Outgoing and social, she makes a wonderful lap cat. Stella is busy and curious at times, and relaxed and mellow at other times — the best of both worlds. This gorgeous gal was found stray, so is in need of a little TLC. She has diabetes mellitus, and is being treated for this at the shelter. She's doing very well, and our shelter veterinarian is available to go over any question/concerns you may have about this.

Bay, domestic shorthair
Bay is a handsome male domestic shorthair cat being kept at Seattle Animal Shelter.
He is neutered.
Notes from Bay's caretakers:
Bay is an active and interested cat who likes to adventure and needs an attentive owner to help him to adventure safely. He enjoys heights, if there's a path or a pair of arms to guide him down. Bay likes proximity more than being held, though he'll come to you and ask to be picked up almost on a daily basis for a few minutes of stroking in your arms. He's not fond of going belly up though, and would like his boundaries respected. He would probably be happy in a spacious home with multiple people or at least one attentive human being.

Sylvia, domestic shorthair
Sylvia is a female domestic shorthair cat in the care of Seattle Animal Shelter.
Sylvia is already spayed.
Here's more from Sylvia:
Hi, my name is Sylvia and I'm looking for a patient, loving home to move into. Sometimes I like to snuggle up and be petted, other times I want to play. I can get a little feisty, so it would be great if you're an experienced cat owner who can recognize my moods. I've had issues with other cats, so I'd like to be your one and only. I'm probably too feisty for children. I am currently on a prescription diet for urinary issues, but I always use my cat box and I hope to be off the special diet soon.
