Smokey is a sweet Balinese mix boy of cream-and-brown coloring with light blue eyes and a fluffy tail. He’s a very people-oriented cat and loves attention. He will butt your hand with his head to show how happy he is to be getting petted, and he is quick to purr. He enjoys servings of juicy Fancy Feast twice a day and a periodic sprinkling of catnip around the base of his scratching post, as well as some catnip mice that he can bat around.
Smokey was given up by his former owners to a shelter in southern Virginia because they were moving. Now he’s looking for a second chance at a forever home, hopefully with you!
Smokey has the potential to live with another laid-back kitty. He now lives with two other cats in his foster home. While they don't interact, he accepts their presence. If adopted into a home with another kitty, proper introduction procedures still need to be followed to ensure feline harmony. Helpful guidelines for this can be found on the 4Paws website. Smokey would also be OK as the only cat as long as he gets plenty of human attention.
Smokey was born in September 2008. He’s been neutered, micro chipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and is current on his vaccinations.

A Big Orange Boy Looking for Love and a New Home!
Do you need a big orange kitty to conduct music in your heart? If so, Maestro is your boy!
Maestro is a sweet tabby boy that has a raspy ‘old-man’ meow, loves to be brushed, and seeks affection whenever he’s awake. In his foster home, Maestro gets along ok with the resident cat but other than the occasional spontaneous cleaning session, they do not hang out together. He would rather snuggle with his human, on a lap, arm, leg, wherever he can fit, to receive attention and be told he’s a handsome boy. Even as the older, wiser feline, Maestro enjoys a good playtime session - catnip mouse toys and the cat charmer felt wand toy are his favorites but he’s known to dig through the toy basket for anything new. He likes to know where his foster mom is anytime she’s home and will meow until he receives a response, followed by prancing over for attention. If he manages to get on the desk chair behind his foster mom, Maestro will reach up and hug her neck and purr in her ear so that she turns around to pet him and shower him with compliments about how he’s such a good boy, it’s quite cute
He would do best in a quiet home, without young children. Maestro is OK with other cats, he seems to prefer older/senior felines, but is scared of dogs, and is more interested in attention from his human(s) rather than other furry creatures. If adopted into a home with another friendly feline, proper introduction procedures still need to be followed. Helpful guidelines for this process can be found on the 4Paws website.
Maestro was born in March 2006. He is on a prescription dry food only diet to prevent urinary problems and manage his weight. He has also been neutered, tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, is current on vaccinations, and has been micro chipped. .

Tin Man came into 4Paws as a rescue from a shelter in Maryland, where he had been found as a stray.
Tin Man is very playful and loves when the feather wand comes out! He will hunt every bug that has the bad sense to try to come into your home. He doesn’t like to be picked up but he will sit in your lap as long as it’s on his terms. Once he’s comfortable with you, he will come up and give your hand several kitty kisses. And at nighttime, he will press up against you in bed, just outside of arm’s reach!
Tin Man needs to be adopted with another young and active kitty companion of his age. He loves hanging out and playing with his 3-year-old foster buddy cat.
Tin Man was born in October 2016. He has been neutered, tested negative for FiV and FeLV, is current on his vaccinations, and has been micro chipped.
