In honor of Veterans Day we are offering our cats at discounted rates to everyone who needs to heal. Just having an animal in your home has a healing effect in many ways. Call ARF today.

Meow Meow is an adult male tux and as long as you have a window, you’ll have a happy cat. He is always welcome to the human touch, but content to watch the birds. Heidi, an adult tortie loves the comforts of life. Give her a blanket to snuggle in, and she will snooze away the day.


What a beautiful ragdoll you are Kiana. Our senior female borders on being the diva of the cattery. She loves to snuggle, but when she struts, well, you better be looking her way.


Yep, this is what it looks like when all of your babies are adopted, and you don’t have a care in the world. Finally able to relax, Mamma is a young violet Burmese/Siamese mix. She has regained her youth, and can often be seen playing with the cat toys right along with the younger crowd. She is very quiet, and content to be alone or with other felines.


And we all remember Winston as he was in the mayoral contest and has been in two 4th of July parades. Winston is friendly and loves to play with other canines, walks away from the felines, loves to walk and exercise, and of course is a lover of the treats.
