Meet Minerva!

Minerva is a 6 month old Dilute Tortie girl with WAVY fur! Talk about a trend setting cat!

She is a quiet, laid back girl who gets bursts of energy and tends to keep herself occupied but not in trouble.

While she was relinquished to us reluctantly due to uncontrollable seizures at the time, we have them well controlled with medications that she takes without a problem. She has been vetted by a boarded veterinary neurologist and has been given the “GO” for adoption. We would prefer her to be adopted into a quiet home as the only cat or a home with an older, relaxed sibling. Click to read more about Minerva!

Meet Panther!

Panther is a handsome young man with a vivacious spirit and a heart of gold despite all of the challenges that 2020 threw his way, and now he’s determined to make 2021 his best year yet.

This charming dude is a social butterfly who insists on morning belly rubs and nightly snuggle sessions — non-negotiable! If he’s not curled up in your lap, you’ll likely find him perched by sunny window, zipping around with his feline friends, or blissfully batting around some of his favorite toys in quiet solitude.

Not only did Flora have a condition called “eyelid agenesis”, where the body fails to develop full eyelids, she was extremely malnourished and emaciated. She was a perfect candidate for our program and was welcomed as a new member of Team “Scratch N’ Dent.”

Spring/Summer Newsletter

Kitten season is in full swing here in Arlington, Virginia! As of May, The Arlington Welfare League’s Kitten Academy has reported over 250 kittens in their foster system already. That’s a LOT of kittens, and many come in quite ill.
