Gorgeous Fluffy Cat with Personality Looking for a Family

Bernie, Animal ID #A24484246

Hi, I'm Bernie. I'm a healthy, affectionate 5-year old with super soft fur. (Can you see how well I take care of it? I am very fastidious and groom myself daily.) My foster humans call me Big Boy Bernie because I was found in the streets (weighing 20 pounds) and brought to Animal Care Services. I have a microchip, but my previous humans never registered it, so I'm now without a permanent home. The Animal Defense League took me in and put me on a special diet to lose the excess weight. I'm a big-boned kitty, so even at my ideal weight, I'm still a "Big Boy". That just means there is more of me to love!

When my humans are really good, I reward them by sitting on their laps.
I get along well with other cats and still have a playful streak. Give me a catnip mouse and I'll go wild!  Occasionally I'll race around the house to let off excess energy.  But I do have an affectionate side, too. I love to cuddle next to my humans on the sofa for a marathon neftlix session. And if you sweet talk me, I will reward you with head butts and nose kisses. Wouldn't you love to bring me home?

View my profile at the Animal Defense League, 11300 Nacogdoches Rd., San Antonio, TX 78217. (655-1481)  I have been neutered, microchipped and am up to date on all my vaccinations.

Who could resist this fluffy belly?

Beautiful mother and kittens available for adoption

Larissa is a beautiful chocolate brown cat who was brought to the Animal Defense League last week. Larissa was spayed and placed in the cattery.  Two days later, the woman who brought her in said she found 3 kittens in her yard and brought them in. We assume they belong to Larissa.  She took to them right away and is back in her role of mother. They are all in foster care and will be available for adoption in about five weeks.

Larissa is very sweet and affectionate and an attentive mother.  The kittens are about three weeks old and just beginning to walk. They are still a bit unsteady on their feet.

If you are interested in adopting any of them, leave a comment and we'll give you more information.

Chester is a two year old male with a big heart. He tends to keep away from the main hustle and bustle of the Cattery, so you may find him resting in one of the tree houses, or in a quiet corner checking things out from afar. Don’t let his distance fool you…he is a loving cat who enjoys being petted. It might take just a little time before he will venture out into your arms…but with a little patience and a few head scratches, he will be the loving forever friend that you’ve been waiting for!

San Antonio Pets Alive Kitten Ward Needs You!

Looking for a rewarding volunteer experience? San Antonio Pets Alive, a rescue organization, takes kittens from the euthanasia list at Animal Care Services and gives them a second chance. Because of the huge number of abandoned kittens at this time of year, Animal Care Services may euthanize up to 100 kittens in a day. Pets Alive needs all the help they can get to save these babies. There are 140+ kittens in the Marbach Rd. Kitten Unit.

You can support their efforts by volunteering to help feed, clean, cuddle and foster these babies. Many of them require bottle feeding. You can share the experience with your family and children can also bottle feed under parental supervision. Evening volunteers are especially needed – even a couple of hours would make a huge difference and save lives!

If interested, please come to their volunteer orientation session at 6:30pm Wednesday, June 13th, at 9107 Marbach Rd #109.

Contact for more information.

Catalina is a special grey Tabby. Her beautiful facial markings make her stand out among the crowd. Don't be concerned that the tip of her ear is missing.  She used to be one of the outdoor cats at the Animal Defense League, and that is a sign that she was spayed.  They quickly realized that she was not feral - she rubbed up against all the visitors, looking for some attention.

Catalina is longing for an affectionate home where she can be appreciated and loved. She will make a wonderful addition to your family and will give her love and loyalty in return. View Catalina's profile on the Animal Defense League website, or visit her in person at 11300 Nacogdoches Rd., San Antonio, TX.

She's so Sassy

Sassy is a friendly female tabby, about a year and a half old.  She was a bit shy when she first came to the Animal Defense League, but she is getting used to things now.  She still loves to have her quiet time perched atop a wooden shelf, however when people come to visit, she lets them know how glad she is to see them.  She will rub against your legs and is always happy to have her head scratched.

You can view a video of sassy and read her profile at the Defense League's website.  Or visit her in person at 11300 Nacogdoches Rd., San Antonio, TX. Sassy is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and has a microchip for identification.
