Spooky and Stormy! Spooky is the black cat. I think!

Meet Spooky and Stormy, a bewitching pair of older sisters who suddenly found themselves homeless when their person passed away. At twelve years of age, these ladies still have plenty of life left in them – life they’d like to spend with you! And each other!

Here’s what Heartland SPCA (formerly Animal Haven, I think? that’s where we adopted O-Ren!) has to say about Spooky and Stormy:

Medium • Senior • Male

Doesn’t the name Spooky tell you so much about me? Well, maybe not so much. I am actually sweet, affectionate, dependable and just a regular good old little lady. Ive gone through a bit of a rough patch in the last month and I am hoping someone with a kind heart will bring me into their home and help me heal. Unfortunately, my owner passed away and I now make my home at the Heartland SPCA with my sister Stormy. We have been together all 12 years of our lives so we need to find a home where we can both call our own. Also, we are both front declawed. I’m a little overwhelmed by the shelter environment, so I would love to find a family who can provide me with a calm and quiet home. I love chin and neck rubs and once I know you, I am quite the purr machine. I have the softest black coat and a kind face with warm eyes. I look forward to the day that I can find someone to love again and I hope that someone is you. Please consider taking my sister Stormy and I home today!

I actually don’t see Stormy’s listing on Petfinder, but I’m guessing that the Heartland SPCA just made one listing for both cats. I hope anyway! The alternatives are too just depressing. Anyway, adopt them! Today!

* Bewitching! See what I did there?

** Or is Spooky a dude? I CAN’T TELL!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Cami

Cami is a courtesy listing from the FMA Animal Hospital in Westwood, Kansas. Her adopted mom rescued her as a newborn kitten and now, eleven years later, has to rehome her due to unforeseen life circumstances. Cami was a patient at the animal hospital, hence their involvement. Cami is a beautiful girl who reported gets on well with everyone she meets. Can you give this sweet older lady a safe, secure home to retire to?

Cami is a sweetheart of a girl who was found originally at 4 days of age and bottle fed by her current mom. Sadly, due to unforseen circumstances, her mom has been forced to move in with relatives who will not allow Cami to stay. Camis mom is a long time client of ours so we have agreed not only to board Cami at our animal hospital, but also assist in finding her a forever home. She is 11 years old, spayed, front declawed, current on vaccines and free of internal and external parasites. She is a very affectionate cat and would do well with a family who is looking for a lap cat. She has been raised around other cats, dogs and children. Please give Andrea a call at FMA Animal Hospital if you would like more info or to meet Cami. 913-262-1600

As with many cats, Campbell’s turn-ons include the washer and warm, freshly laundered clothes!

Campbell, what a handsome guy! Friendly and playful, but not the biggest fan of other felines. If you’re a one-cat human, Campbell just might be the guy for you!


Domestic Short Hair-Black: An adoptable cat in Merriam, KS
Medium • Adult • Male

Campbell is a very handsome short-haired, neutered male cat who is approximately 2 years old. He has a beautiful sleek black coat, and gorgeous golden eyes.

He has been in foster care for a few months now. We feel he would be happier in a home without other cats because he seems to get stressed when other cats are around.

Campbell is a very nice boy who enjoys being petted and loved on. He can get a little frisky when he’s had enough and will let you know. He likes to play with wand-type toys, and he really could use the exercise because he is getting a little chunky! He is currently being fed Science Diet Adult Lite food, and he LOVES Greenies cat treats.

Campbell is neutered, has been tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV and is negative, is current on vaccines, and has been flea treated and de-wormed. Won’t you consider giving this great guy a forever home?

An application is required prior to visiting our animals in their foster homes and to help ensure a good fit between adopter and adoptee. Please CLICK HERE to fill out an adoption application. One of our volunteers will get back to you within 24 hours. Please contact us for more info!

Divapets has a number of cats available for adoption, so even if Campbell here doesn’t strike your fancy, please consider one (or two!) of their other residents instead!

How can you say no to this face? (Answer: YOU CAN’T!)



Find-a-Friend Friday: Clementine and Heather

Sisters Clementine and Heather need a home, asap!

Clementine and Heather are a pair of sisters who were originally adopted from The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City when they were just wee little kittens. Several years and a new baby later, and the two are back at the shelter and once again in need of a home. Here’s what HSGKC has to say about them:




Clementine & Heather
Calico/Domestic Medium Hair-White Mix: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

Date of birth: 5/04

11/18/11: Clementine & Heather are sisters who are looking for a home together. Clementine is a beautiful white cat with a medium hair coat. She’s an affectionate girl and she gets along with other cats. Heather is a Calico kitty with a pretty coat and an adorable round face. She is very friendly and curious. Both girls get along with other cats. They are 7 years old.

We’ve posted more photos of Clementine & Heather on their individual Petfinder pages.

Heather and Clementine originally came to us when they were little kittens. At that time they were very sick with an upper respiratory virus and it caused horrible eye infections in the kittens. Heather had to have an eye removed at that time because it was so badly damaged. But she’s had no other upper respiratory or eye problems since she was young. Both of Clementine’s eyes were saved. She occasionally has some eye discharge problems and needs medication when that happens.

Heather and Clementine get along well together. They’ve been together their entire lives so we’d like to find them a home together. They were originally adopted when they were young and returned recently due to a new baby in the family and not enough time to care for them.


Please consider opening your heart and home to these beautiful girls – both of them! – in their time of need. ‘Tis the season, am I right folks?

Find-a-Friend Friday: Peaches (Also: Wayside Waifs’s “All I Want For Christmas Is YOU!” Adoption Event!)

Meet Peaches, y’all! Isn’t she adorable? She and another little cutie, Marmalade, were rescued from a hoarding situation after the death of their person. Both kittens need a new home to call their own. Hopefully some kickass human will adopt them both. (In time for Christmas! And shower them with gifts come December 25th! And love and hug and cuddle them forever!)

Here’s what SNKC has to say about Peaches:



Domestic Short Hair: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, MO
Small • Young • Female

Peaches is in foster care and rescued from a horrible hoarding situation. There were over 30+ cats rescued from this situation and had been left in a trailer for weeks after their owner passed away. Peaches is one of the cuddliest cats I have ever met. She loves to rub and be stroked. She will lay with you and sit with you. She liked to follow us from room to room. She is less than a year old and likely to be a small cat when full-grown. She gets along well with other cats and small dogs, probably any dog, but all we have are small ones. She has not bothered plants in the house and uses the litter box well. If you are interested in adopting Marmalade please email

Spay & Neuter Kansas City is an awesome group that provides low-cost spay & neuter and vaccination services in the KC area. The also provide education and outreach services, run low-cost dog training classes, maintain a “pet” food pantry, and help find homes for animals in need. Currently they’re in need of in-kind donations (such as dog and cat food, hay, litter boxes, dog houses, and cleaning products), as well as donations of money (or perhaps services?) to repair their outreach truck. Every little bit helps!

You should also know that Wayside Waifs is holding a special “All I Want For Christmas Is YOU!” Adoption Event this Saturday, December 3rd (that’s tomorrow, folks!) from 10AM to 6PM. Stop by and meet the 300+ plus nonhumans who need a kind-hearted soul (that’s you) to bring them in from the cold this holiday season.



All adoptions are just $25! Second chances, is there any gift greater?
