Some calendar kitties are adopted, some are still awaiting their forever home.

Here are two friends from VOKRA who are still waiting for a new home and family:


Valentine was one of three kittens rescued from the chassis of an old abandoned truck. Valentine is named for St. Valentine’s Day – the day she finally came out of hiding at her foster family’s home. Valentine is an amazingly beautiful and graceful little black panther. She started out shy but now she loves to play and is beginning to ask for pets and scratches. She is very curious and clever, and meows a hello every morning as she rubs against your legs. Although she is still skittish (and is not quite ready to be held), she is very affectionate and would be quite happy to have a window where she can watch birds all day. Valentine would do best in a quiet home and has adapted extremely well to sharing space with other cats.

Valentine would like to be adopted with Marlin.  She really depends on Marlin; they sleep, eat, and play together.

Adopt Valentine HERE


Marlin is still very shy and her foster family is working on getting her used to being petted, but for now she will greet your finger with a sniff, eat snacks from your fingers, and play as long as you have the energy. Marlin is growing more comfortable, but she still would do best with a family who knows how to be gentle and understanding of a shy cat.
