Meet Freddie and Hobo, y’all! This super-cute little guys have a sweet story: Freddie the feral cat starting showing up at HELP Humane Society a few years ago and, after some time, brought a friend with him. When he saw how much love Hobo the not-so-feral cat was enjoying from the humans, Freddie decided that he wanted in on the action. And that is how the grinch’s heart melted.

Medium • Senior • Male

If ever there were a pair of bonded cats, here they are! Can you tell immediately? Freddie showed up at HELP several years ago as a feral cat, he brought a friend with him and they were inseparable. Then one day, he began coming without his friend, we never knew what happened to her but then he started showing up with Hobo. Hobo was a stray cat, not feral but none of us could bring ourselves to bring Hobo into the shelter and leave Freddie behind again. Funny thing happened, Freddie was watching Hobo getting affection from humans and he decided ‘hey, I need to get in on this!’ So, both he and Hobo decided to come in out of the elements and find an awesome family that would give them a family together. Freddie and Hobo, boys, Freddie born approx 2003, Hobo, born approx 2006. Special adoption fee applies, $90 to adopt the pair.

HELP Humane is a non-profit TRUE No Kill animal shelter currently run on individual donations and fundraising alone. (just south of Kansas City). All HELP animals are treated by veterinarians, receive age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and those incoming after Oct 2005, have been micro chipped. Cats have been FeLV/FIV tested and are negative unless otherwise stated. Dogs have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative. We have been told by many adopters that the reason they liked adopting from us is because we have a happy place and all the cats are the friendliest ones they had ever met. HELP Humane believes that all life is precious and is therefore, a TRUE No Kill shelter. We have many FIV and FeLV+ cats in our care. They will live with us until they end their life’s journey or find a permanent home.

Seven-year-old Kiki and her 17-year-old big sis Sunny are two shy kittens who have found themselves homeless in their adult and senior years. They desperately need a new home into which they can retire – together. If you’re the sort of special person who’d like to make that happen: firstly, I love you, and so does Dog. Secondly, these lovely ladies are staying with Helping Hand Cat Rescue and Adoption in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, and you should give ’em a call right away. Kiki and Sunny are eager to meet you, yo!

Medium • Adult • Female

Kiki is the brown marbled tabby and Sunny is the white cat with black and tan spots. Kiki’s b.d. is 03/28/05 and Sunny’s b.d. is 09/14/94. They both came from the same home and I would prefer they be adopted together. I will do a two-fer on them to keep them together. Both cats are timid and will need a quiet place to reside. Both of them will hide if there’s too much commotion in the area. Sunny, right now is for the most part eating strictly canned food. As you can see, she is 17 years old. She does have a touch of arthritis. When she walks, she minces on her toes. She will need a little extra TLC to make her comfortable in her golden years. Kiki is especially timid. She is a very friendly cat, though and purrs up a storm when you pick her up and cuddle her. Please consider these two together and give them a loving home! My contact number is 816-810-4163.

Find-a-Friend Friday: Amethyst

Amethyst, what a jewel!

If you’re a one-cat human, Amethyst might just be your girl! She’s currently staying in a foster home with Blue Skye Cat and Kitten Adoptions. But, seeing as she’s not too fond of her fellow felines, this really isn’t the ideal place for her. She’s okay with dogs, though! Just as long as they mind their own biz!

Silver Tabby Adult

Amethyst is a bit of a dichotomy. She’s just a bit skittish, but she loves to come up to you for a good loving. I tend to think maybe she was shooed away alot in her prior home. But if you encourage her a bit, she loves her loving! She definitely doe NOT like other cats, but will tolerate a calm, well-behaved dog. She would do fine with older children. She needs a loving home of her own. She’s not happy in a foster environment.

When we got Amethyst we were told she was pregnant. She wasn’t, she was just fat! So she is a little chunky, but not too chunky!

This cat’s estimated birthdate is 7/1/2008. Her adoption fee is: $50.00.

This cat is altered, up to date on shots and worming, tested for Feline Leukemia, and comes with a complimentary well exam with one of our participating vets. Without the support of our wonderful veterinarian partners, we wouldn’t be able to do the rescue work we do today!

You can visit our adoptable cats and kittens on Saturdays from noon-five at our adoption Center located at Mariposa Veterinary Center. Mariposa Vet Clinic is located at 13900 Santa Fe Trail Drive in Lenexa. Not every animal attends every adoption so always call or e-mail ahead to confirm that a particular animal will be present. All of our cats and kittens stay in licensed foster homes during the week (except for Saturday). For more information e-mail or call 913-971-0101



If you’re interested in this lovely lady (and I know that you are!), give Blue Skye Cat and Kitten Adoptions a holla!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Pretty

Pretty kitty!

Pretty kitty needs a home! This lovely “torbie” (is that even a word!?) lady is currently staying with Forever Friends Animal League, who has this to say about her:


Domestic Short Hair/Torbie Mix: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

Please contact Robin 816-444-3501 ( for more information about this pet.

Pretty is a beautiful girl with coat that’s part tortoise shell and part tabby — hence she’s what is known as a torbie. The beautiful shades of brown, rust and black fur are outlined in light silver when you look at it closely. Put that together with her small face, huge eyes, and lean torso and you’ve got one beauty queen of a feline.

Pretty is very sensitive and shy at first. She is O.K. with a few other cats. She is very loving and loves just hanging out with you. She’s also very good at petting you with her claws retracted. The best I’ve ever seen … or felt. It’s almost like she’s front-declawed.

Do you need a beautiful, gentle companion? To meet Pretty, who was rescued by a a group in southern Missouri and then transported to her current foster home in Kansas City, call her foster mom at 816-444-3501 or contact her at

Pretty is up to date on shots, is spayed and has been tested. Her adoption fee is just $75.

Thanks for caring.

We are a foster home based shelter. Please contact the foster home or contact person for each individual animal. We will arrange to meet in a place that is convenient for the foster home and the prospective adoptor. If the animal and the family seem a good fit then we do same day adoptions. We accept cash or check.

MISSOURI FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! A foster home houses a dog or cat and provides love and training until it is adopted into it’s new Forever Home. We provide the food and vet care. You allow people to meet the animal and bring it to adoption events. Contact Debbie at 913-707-5111
