Beautiful, playful flooftail searches for the right family to become a faithful shadow.

Madelenie: September 2020

Meet Madeleine! Madeleine is a recent mom and now that her kittens have been adopted, she is ready to find her forever home.

Madeleine with kittens; Summer 2020 – All kittens have been adopted and are with their forever families.

She tends to stay close by those that she loves so she may not be a lap cat YET, but she will be the cutest shadow you have ever met!

Madeleine: early summer 2020 with new babies – she is very affectionate here, and mom cats can be extra affectionate just after birth of their kittens.

Madeleine is unique not only because she is an orange female but because she is blind in her right eye. This doesn’t stop her from playing with the pups at her foster home, though!

Madeleine and her resident canine siblings

She’s sweet and likes when I use the stick with the bird at the end of it. …I rarely ever sit down at home where she has the chance to sit on a couch with me, but even with how busy the house gets she never hides and likes to watch everyone and everything.

Foster Family

Madeleine tested negative (good) for FeLV and FIV and is up to date on vaccines. She will be spayed and will be microchipped prior to adoption. We suspect that the blindness in her right eye may have been caused by a virus at a younger age.

Madeleine before rescue, pregnant or just after giving birth. We rescued her and her kittens when they were just a day or two old from the Cookie Barn.

Madeleine is dog and cat friendly. She loves to play! We just know that Madeleine will only continue to grow into a more and more loving cat once she moves in with her forever family! If you are interested in Madeleine, fill out an application below.
