Wanda is a skinny, scrappy little kitty with lots of personality!

Wanda, what a catch! Good with other cats and dogs, mellow but with a mischievous streak, a loving mother and devoted friend. Why on earth isn’t all of Kansas City falling down at her doorstep?



Wanda, aka Pool Shark
Domestic Short Hair/Dilute Tortoiseshell Mix: An adoptable cat in North Kansas City, MO
Small • Adult • Female

Although her “Official” name is Wanda, this funny little girl has several nicknames. Sometimes we call her “Mellow Yellow”, because her eyes are the same color as Mellow Yellow soda. “Mellow” also fits her when she’s sprawled out, chilling without a care in the world. And unbelievably, she doesn’t seem to care when I vacuum around her. I’ve never had a cat that would lay there while I vacuum in the same room, much less under the chair she’s in, or with the vacuum pushing the kitty bed she’s laying on!

Other times, we call her “Momma cat” because when she came to us, she was quite pregnant, and had a litter of kittens. She was a proud and protective momma, and the nickname stuck.

Recently, we’ve started calling her “Pool Shark”, because she has figured out how to get the pool balls out of our pool table! Granted, it’s an old table, and it’s easy for me to pull them out…but I couldn’t believe it when she did it! She’s a petite little thing, and I’m surprised she had aspirations to play with pool balls! After she gets them out, she bats them around.

I would guess that Wanda is about a year and a half old. She enjoys going outside on the patio, or will follow me as I weed and water my flower bed. I think she would be equally happy as an indoor or indoor/outdoor kitty. She’ll follow me all over, but doesn’t make any motion to go out the door when I let the dogs out. She just sits there and waits for them all to come back in. But if you offer for her to go out, she’ll follow you.

See all of Wanda’s pictures on her online album here.

Wanda is extremely social, and is still quite a little fiesty kitten sometimes. She was a wonderful mother, but that’s over now and she wants a little spoiling of her own! Wanda kneads ALL the time, and loves to be with people. She’s not obnoxious about it, but she follows me everywhere I go. Wanda is not a lazy and laid back kitty all the time. Sometimes she has a lot of spunk and personality.

Wanda would love to be someone’s companion kitty. She plays with other kitties, and will chase and gallop around with them. I think she would do fine with another kitty, given a little space at first.

Wanda would do fine with dogs, because she doesn’t hesitate to put them in their place. For such a little kitty, she’s kinda mighty. She would not do well with a dog that gets mad when swatted, because she WILL swat at them when they get too close. Then again, she’ll also curl up with them on the bed for a nap.

Her vetwork is up to date, and she is spayed. She’s very healthy, active, eats great, and is perfect in the litterbox department.

Wanda has been sponsored, so her adoption fee is minimal.

Go! Adopt her! Now!

Just one thing: keep her inside so she doesn’t kill any other animals (not just birds, but also lizards, snakes, chipmunks…the list goes on!), and for her own safety as well. Deal?

Find-a-Friend Friday: Bailey

Bailey the senior couch potato is seeking a fellow layabout
with which to share a couch. He’ll even let you drive the telly!

Meet Bailey, y’all! Bailey is an adorable older gent who, like so many before him, was displaced from his home when a baby showed up. Totally not his fault, right? Sure, so maybe he didn’t like to share his toys with the new arrival, but I’m hardly one to talk – I don’t like to share my stuff with babies either! Bailey is an easygoing guy who seems like he’d be a good fit for an equally easygoing person or family. (Just look at all those pics of him chillaxing on the couch. Dude just wants a soft warm cushion!)

Will you give this sweet guy the retirement home he so desperately needs and deserves?



Beagle/Terrier Mix: An adoptable dog in North Kansas City, MO
Small • Adult • Male

Who wouldn’t fall in love with that little face?! Bailey is a Terrier/Beagle male that was born on the 4th of July, 2001. He was adopted as a puppy by a young woman that was wanting a companion and lookout. He’s done a great job of both, but now that there is a baby in the picture, Bailey is not so happy. He’s feeling a little insecure.

Bailey is very affectionate and loves to be anywhere people are and will follow you from room to room. He loves to go on walks and is house[trained]. He has a fierce bark and will bark at noises around the house or anyone outside the windows he can see. If you’re looking for a wonderful little companion that will give you an alert, Bailey might be the perfect little companion for you!

Bailey has been around other dogs. He will bark at dogs, but typically gets along well with larger dogs. He tolerates cats, and isn’t interested in playing with them or snuggling with them.

Bailey is very smart, and knows: Sit, down or lay down, off or get down, stay, ok (we make him sit before going outside or coming back inside, and before eating, & he will sit until we tell him ‘ok’), give me your belly, give me your paw, and sit up/sit pretty (with help of a treat over his head).

Bailey is really looking for a quiet home with no small children. He doesn’t really like to share, and little kids don’t understand that. He would love to have someone to sit with, someone with a regular routine that he can learn. We all like routine, and he feels more secure knowing when things are going to happen. He needs someone who doesn’t mind letting him have his own way sometimes.

Please email for more information about Bailey.
