Tiger Lily, tabby
Tiger Lily is a sweet female tabby cat being cared for at Silicon Valley Pet Project.
She is already house-trained. She's been vaccinated.
Here's what Tiger Lily's friends at Silicon Valley Pet Project think of her:
Tiger Lily is a young semi-feral cat brought to the shelter after giving birth. After a difficult recovery, Lily is now looking for a patient caretaker who will introduce her to their neighborhood and provide food, shelter and love, even if she doesn't show any affection back. She is a shy and gentle soul who shows aggression when she is fearful. Tiger Lily is only partially socialized and cannot be an indoor-only cat. We are looking for someone willing to house her temporarily in a garage or similar enclosed space until she is familiar with her surroundings and then slowly introduce her to the outside.

Notes from Boots' caretakers:
Boots is such a good boy. Rescued off the street by a kind person, he was surrendered to our rescue because she could not house him. He is handsome with a quirky little half wink to his right eye. He had surgeries to correctboth eyelids and has recovered really well. He is a relaxed, laid back kind of guy. Loves to look out of his widow perch and watch the day go by. He plays with wand toys but does not actively play by himself.

Hugo, domestic shorthair mix
Hugo is a handsome male domestic shorthair mix staying at The Dancing Cat.
Hugo wants to be your one and only: He'll need a home free of other cats. Hugo is already neutered.
Notes from Hugo's caretakers:
Hugo is a sweet kitty who will need some time to warm up in a foster home. This gentle guy just needs a little bit of patience; he comes around fairly quickly. When he does, you'll be rewarded with snuggles and purrs. Hugo has a purr so loud that you can practically hear it throughout every room. Along with this snuggle side, Hugo has an active and playful side — you'll catch him galloping from room to room, looking for toys and entertainment. If you have ample snuggles, treats, and kitty toys, consider this handsome guy.
