Adoptable Cats

All of our adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, up to to date with vaccinations and micro chipped. Our adoption fee is $75 for adult cats, 1-10 years old; $100 for kittens, up to a year old; and $35 for senior cats 11 years and older. If you are interested in adopting, you ask that you fill out an Adoption Application, which can also be completed before your visit. We will then review the application and verify the information. If approved, you will be able to bring your new family member home as early as the next day. We want people to sleep on their decision before making a commitment so please come and visit as many times as you need to!

Please make an appointment to come see us for a visit. Once the appointment has been booked, we will send you detailed directions to our location, which is off Clark Road just a few miles east of I-75 at exit 205 in Sarasota.

Amazing Grace came to Satchel's recently and was initially very shy when we first met her. She is starting to blossom however, and is a very sweet, affectionate senior girl who would make a great companion for a quiet household. She tolerates other cats, but isn't fond of them like some of our other cats. She's a soft beauty and is friendlier than most Calico kitties. To meet Amazing Grace, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch to set up an appointment.

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.

Welcome Blue to the Satchel's family. Blue is a cream-colored Siamese/Tabby blend with beautiful blue eyes. He’s estimated to be about 4 years old and weighs 12 pounds. When he was found back in April, he had a gash on his head, which healed up quickly and he's now as good as new. Blue is great with other cats, but he is not at all fond of dogs! If you are looking for a pal for your resident cat, you should definitely meet Blue. He is a quiet guy who loves a good head or chin scratching. For an appointment to meet Blue, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch to schedule an appointment.

** 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!

Duchess is a beautiful female tabby who doesn't mind other cats, as long as they part ways for her. She came to Satchel's with her three sons, Kobe, Ted and Will, and prefers their company in the cat room over others, per se. She is a bit shy at first, although loves to be petted and her chin scrubbed. She is guessed to be 11 years old and would make a great pet for someone who likes the company of cats, but seeks an independent feline personality. True to her name, she is regal, and will seek affection when she desires it. To meet Duchess, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.

Meet Kobe! This shy handsome guy has gorgeous markings and has a playful side that is sure to entertain. He doesn't really care for other cats besides his mom, Duchess and brothers, Ted and Will, but does tolerate them. He can often be found grooming his brothers or mum and will venture to meet you halfway for a chin rub. He would take a bit of warming up to, but once he does, he's well worth the wait. Kobe is thought to be 10 years old.

Meet Lilu, 7 year old, female! Lilu came to Satchel's a short time ago when her family had to give her up as they were moving and not able to take her with them. She is a sweet girl, loves to follow you around rubbing at your feet, but clearly does not like other cats and, after just a few weeks in our open cat room, is starting to become a bully to the other cats. She didn't like the puppy in her former home either, so she clearly needs to be an only pet. If you have no other four-legged ones in your home, and are looking for a beautiful companion, please consider meeting Lilu. Email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070 for an appointment.

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! For an appointment to meet Molly, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hello there! My name is Pepper Jacky! I was dumped here at the shelter one evening along with my sister and 2 brothers. The lovely people at Satchel's brought us in and cared for us.  My sister and brother have both been adopted and I'm patiently waiting for someone to come and fall in love with me. I am a little shy around new people, but once I know you I love to be in your company! I'm still young and love to play. What do you say? Will I see you soon? Pepper Jacky is estimated to be 4 years old. For an appointment to meet her, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Meet one of our FIV-positive cats Sam. Although Sam lived with his person for several years prior to coming to Satchel's earlier in the spring, he seems to have reverted back to his extreme shy ways. In a home with a single person showing him love and trust every day, he would most likely again come out of his hiding spot and bond with his one person. This handsome boy is guessed to be approaching his senior years, especially for an FIV-positive kitty, and doesn't deserve to die alone at the shelter. He can't go into our main open cat room and Satchel's is not really set up for an FIV cat room. If you are looking to give some love to an only cat for a few years, please consider meeting Sam. Email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070 today to be Sam's hero.

Sugars
Domestic Short Hair / Mixed (short coat)
Female
Adult
Sugars came in with her sister as a young girl a couple of years ago, both very shy and timid. Recently, Sugars has started coming out to greet us, no quick movement or loud noises or she will run and hide in her safe place. With the help of volunteers and staff members, she is coming out of her shell slowly. Sugars likes walking from room to room, checking to see if there is anything interesting going on. She is a big nap time girl, from laying out on the patio sunbathing with eyes dreaming, or inside her favorite hiding place curled up with a friend. She feels comfortable approaching people when they are giving pets, or sitting on the floor, and has come out to sit next to some she considers a friend. She loves getting scratched, a good face rub and she will adore you. She has shown interest in the string cat toys, but avoids some of our other feline friends when playing. She hasn't let anyone pick her up yet, but if the right person could boost her confidence, a lap cat is in the making. If you have a little patience to help this precious girl learn to trust in a home, please complete the no obligation application found on or website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will get back to you to schedule an appointment for you to meet her.

Hi I'm Ted, and I'm a nine-year-old gray Tabby as you can see, and I'm looking for my furever home. I get along fine with other cats, but I'm not too sure of dogs yet. I ended up here a short while ago after my owner passed. My owner's friend took me in but with the kitties she already had, on top of my three cat friends it proved just too much for me and my friends to remain there. Won't you please take me home? I'll miss my friends, but I understand if you can't take us all!!! This is a great place and I'm sure they'll be okay until they get to go home too! Also the guy that takes care of us is really awesome, and loves us all very much.For an appointment to meet Ted, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Tuxedo (short coat)

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.
