Adult
Meet Betty! Betty was dumped in Satchel's driveway along with her sister Wilma. Although both were extremely traumatized and no longer trusting of humans, they appeared to be well cared for and must have lived in a home and been loved at some point. After several months of socialization with our staff and volunteers, Betty is once again ready to go into a home and be loved by her very own people. She does become very attached to her humans and is scared of the other cats in our open cat room so would do best in a home with no other cats or perhaps just with her sister Wilma. Betty is estimated to be approximately 6-7 years old. For an appointment to meet her, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Billy Joe
Domestic Medium Hair (medium coat)
Male
Senior
Billy Joe is a very shy and reclusive resident at Satchel's who has been with us for quite some time. No-one who happens to walk in would ever notice him since he really likes to hide. He is a very mellow and unassuming cat, gets along great with all the other cats, not looking for any trouble, but unsure of humans. Billy Joe will need some time to warm up to a new person and gain his trust. Even though he is so shy and withdrawn, he likes staff and volunteers to find him in his hiding spots and pet him and, although often unsure at first, will relax and purr as he starts to enjoy the attention. Billy Joe came in with some slight limping, but it does not seem to bother him at all. He would also like a little help with grooming and regular brushing to spare him from getting matted. Are you the patient and loving adopter who can give this sweet, mellow boy the space, time and affection he needs to come out of his shell? If so, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070 for an appointment to meet him.

** SPECIAL NEEDS ** Hey there! I'm Bunny! I got this name because there is some sort of trauma on my back end and when I run, it looks like I'm hopping! I also have a small bunny-like tail. There is nothing medically wrong with me though, I still am able to jump and climb like any other cat! I do have special needs. Due to my back end it is sometimes hard to make it to the litter box to go potty. I would love a family who wouldn't mind wiping my bum if needed, and wouldn't be upset with me if I couldn't make it to the box. I prefer a home to myself without any other cats as I can get a little cranky sometimes. I love to play and am always happy to be pet and held. I am estimated to be 7-8 years old. If you'd like to meet me, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070!

I'm Cissy, and I'm a 6 year old female cat waiting for my forever home here at Satchel's Last Resort. I'm really hoping that I get to start the new year off by going home with a special someone. I'm very outgoing with humans and I like to talk a lot. I am a little reserved with other kitties, especially at feeding time. I think I'd be happiest as an only kitty or maybe one or two others, however I do find 20 something a bit much! I like to play, especially with a laser light, and I'd love to follow you around the house talking to you. I know my name and will come out of my hiding place when called. I'm a cuddler too, and would love to lay on you when it's time to relax. So Wattaya say? Can we ring in the New Year just a few days late together? Pleeease!!!....and btw, I'm not "bad" luck!

Dee Dee is a quiet and very unassuming sweet older lady who keeps to herself and loves to relax and chill out in her favorite comfy spots. She loves human attention and gets along well with all the other cats in the room; she would be good as an only or also a companion cat to another mellow feline friend. Unfortunately, because of her low-key personality, she has been overlooked in the shelter for a long time. Dee Dee is ready for retirement and would make a great addition to your family if you are wanting to adopt a quiet senior cat and show her love for her remaining years. Dee Dee is estimated to be 15-16 years old. For an appointment to meet her, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Holly is a 10 year old spayed female. She was the companion of an elderly lady who passed. All Molly had known was her former owner and her former home so she was very scared when she first came to Satchel's and it took her several weeks to come out of her hiding space and out of her shell.She is still very shy and almost unassuming, blending in and getting along with the other cats and making the best of the shelter setting and the fact that she has to share her place, attention and food with many other cats.   Holly would love to find a home with her own special humans who would again make her feel special. She will get along fine with other cats and will be a super low maintenance feline addition in any cat loving household. She may also be fine with well mannered and cat friendly dogs. For an appointment to meet Holly, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hope
Domestic Long Hair
Adult
Hope is a more recent resident in our shelter, joining the Satchel's family this past summer. A veterinarian clinic reached out to us to rescue this girl who had been taken in for a Urinary Tract Infection and requested to be euthanized instead of treated for this easy to treat ailment. This girl was just 9-10 years old - of course we accepted her into our Rescue Rehab Rehome program and just a short time later, this beautiful girl was happy and healthy and looking for her new forever home. Hope is a very sweet, beautiful, mellow cat with whom you will instantly fall in love! She likes to hang out in a more quiet area of our free roaming cat room, so please ask for her by name when you visit. She gets along well with all the other feline friends she has made and would be great in a home with another cat or as an only child. For an appointment to meet Hope, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Molly

Molly came to Satchel's in the winter of 2018, surrendered by an elderly couple who could no longer care for her. Molly, 10 years old at the time, had been adopted by the couple as a kitten and knew no one but her long time parents causing her to be turned away from the original rescue because of her poor temperament. This couple had nowhere else to turn and as their hearts were breaking, they made an appointment to have her euthanized. One of our staff members heard about Molly's plight and just 3 hours before she was scheduled to be euthanized, Satchel's came to the rescue. Molly would be given a chance to find another home that she could call her home forever.  Molly was so scared in the beginning and for months seem to mourn the loss of her family. She found a hiding spot and rarely came out, not wanting to be touched. Then one day, Molly decided it was time to show up for some petting and see what the other cats in our open cat room were up to. She is now super sweet and friendly with people and the other cats. Molly has overcome all her fears and struggles and is ready for her forever home and a loving family. This sweet girl deserves the best!

Nicky is a smaller sized adult cat who has been at Satchel's far too long. She is very shy first until she learns to trust you. She is a very sweet, mellow cat who gets along well with all the other cats in our open cat room. Nicky is looking for a patient family who will give her time to adjust and show her what TLC is all about. Nicky loves to hang out in our screened lanai and she is so easy going and blending in with her low-key and shy personality, that she is overlooked. Ideally, Nicky would enjoy having another mellow feline friend as a companion in her new home. Nicky is estimated to be 6 years old.

Ragdoll / Siamese / Mixed (long coat)

** SPECIAL NEEDS - MEDICAL ** Patches was taken to our vet this past spring to be euthanized because she had chronic UTI issues and was not using a litter box. When we were contacted to save this girl, we just couldn't say no. She is such a darling girl, just loving any attention that comes her way. Our vet felt the chronic UTI and litter box issue could very well be caused by the stress of having to share the litter box with several other cats in the home. Our open cat room environment does not help with that. Living stress free in a home as an only cat, may well cure her chronic UTI and she will again use a litter box regularly - but it's an unknown. We are looking for a foster or adoptive home for Patches with someone who is able to continue to care for her and love her even if her condition doesn't get resolved. Is that person you? Are you willing to take a chance on this girl and show her what a home as an only cat is all about? She'll show you so much love in return. Patches is 10-11 years old. For an appointment to meet her, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hello everybody I'm Redford and I'm here at Satchel's waiting for my forever home. I found myself here a short time ago after my person decided to go to heaven along with my cat friend. Graciously my person's family took me into their home, but it just wasn't meant to be. I am tolerant of other cats but their kitty just didn't like me very much. I like to talk... ALOT!!! I also like kids who know how to play with a kitty, I'm not too sure about the smaller versions though! I've met a small dog while I've been here at Satchel's and he's not "too" bad. I don't have any bad behaviors and I promise to use my litter box and only scratch on my scratching post! So wattaya say? Can you give me a chance. Pleeeaaassseee??? I'll love you forever! Redford is male and guessed to be approximately 8 years old.

Meet Zephyr! Zephyr is a very sweet and mellow large tuxedo neutered male. Zephyr arrived at Satchel's in January of 2011, brought to us covered in mange and almost feral by a truck driver who had found him in Zephryhills (hence his name). Although Zephyr can still be a little shy with people at first, he absolutely loves attention once he learns to trust his human friends. Zephyr truly has a one-of-a-kind personality. He is good with all the other cats in our open cat room and is very often seen snuggling up with a cat who has picked him to be their "big brother". Zephyr's age is a guess, but we estimate perhaps 10-11 year old. For an appointment to meet Zephyr, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.
