UTD on vaccinations 


My  name is Indie. Yes, I was named after Indiana Jones. That is because when I was a tiny kitten I was (and still am) very adventurous and independent. I'm a little scared in my picture because I just arrived at PetSmart in Fairfield, but I'm a lovable guy once I get to know you. I am a 4 month old neutered male and UTD on vaccinations. 

Come meet me!


My make is Robin. I am a big lovable lug. I am an 11 yer old neutered male. I am very friendly and love to be around humans.

I am the last off 5 cats Paws took in to find new homes. I am currently in a foster home. Interested? Fill out the contact form above 

Barn Cats
Currently we have three cats seeking farm life. One 2 year old female Maine coon mix, one 1 year old male Maine coon mix, and one 4 month old Maine coon mix. Mama kitty was abounded on our doorstep a year and a half ago pregnant. While we were able to trap her kittens she was too smart to fall for the trap. During the year it took us to trap mama she had three litters of kittens. We were able to trap and socialize and find loving homes for all but the two listed above. No adoption fee, but request small donation so we may continue out TNT efforts into 2018 and beyond.
