Meet Zoey, Zippy and Zilly. These three gorgeous sisters are looking for furever homes.
 
So this sweet crew was trapped in the woods at about 5 weeks old. Then they lived in a dog crate for 5 days for their safety,  but it was also a little scary for them. Then they moved into my guest room on June 21st. Over the past 9 weeks they’ve gone from hissy traumatized babies living inside the box springs to the precious balls of hilarious energy you see in the pictures and videos. They are also now cuddle bugs with loud purrs. Once they figured out I am the giver of treats and belly rubs, they became tame in a hurry. They are so happy, funny and sweet; they play with toys and each other; they are very neat and litter box trained.They love my dog and have had lots of children come spend time playing and sitting with them. Never a dull moment with these girls.
 
Sometimes they are still shy about being held but they just need a little time with you. I know for a fact that Love always trumps fear! These kittens need big doses of love. Feral kittens bond so much with the people willing to be patient. That’s the gift on the other side of patience. I have loved watching them and earning their trust. It was an honor to spend my summer with them.
 
Zoe, Zippy, and Zilly have been lovingly fed and trained by my friend Lisa. If you have a child who has been begging for a cat (or 3), you can’t do better than these sisters.

Zippy is the smallest girl but also mighty hunter and toys. She will slay her stuffed tiger and drag it to her den to eat later. She has been described as a diluted calico; she seems to have been painted with watercolors. She enjoys a good back scratch, and once you have her trust, she’ll give your legs a good rub. She’s the smallest with the loudest purr. She also loves to flip over an over in your lap until she finds just to the position.

How our Adoption Process Works:

We take loving care to help match the right kitty with the right family. 

1. Ideally identify a couple of kitty candidates on our website, use the advanced search capability to find what you need.  You can also tell our team what you are looking for and they will help with suggestions.  If you are seeing our kitties on an adoption website you may want to pop on over to www.catrangers.org where we often have even more pictures.

2. Fill out an application online at catrangers.org.    Once we have an application our adoption team can work with you to arrange appointments for either virtual or in person meetings with candidate kitties.  Kittens are kept in foster homes to make sure they are being properly socialized.  Visits may be virtual, at foster's home or at the CatRangers Center in Buford.

3. Our adoption team conducts a personal interview with you and then a virtual home visit to make sure you are fully prepared for a new kitty.   Our team also calls and checks your vet reference and personal references.   (We really want to you and our kitty to have the very best chance for a lifetime of loving success.)

4. Once application is approved and adoption fee is paid (currently $155 per cat), we reserve the kitty you have selected.  The $155 includes all vaccines up to the time of adoption (if there are remaining in a series or rabies if kitten has had it you will be responsible for that).  Kitties have been Felv/FIV tested, treated for fleas and parasites, and have been microchipped.  Your adoption fee includes a spay/neuter appointment if your selected kitty has not already been altered.

Some kitties are very popular and you need to move fast to select those you are interested in and get through the process to try to get your first choice in a furrever friend.     However, please do be patient with our volunteer team, it can take us some times to get everything done.   And while you are at it, if you are interested in volunteering or fostering, please fill out applications on our webpage!
