Silly kitties

We post plenty of adorable photos of cats and kittens being sweet and calm. But do you see the ones being just a little off the wall?

Here's Cocoa Puff, who looooooooves to be brushed and get his belly rub. Apparently it just melts his brain, according to this picture. 

Caroline is a sweet girl who really enjoys time with her toys. She has one of our jellyfish toys and a square kicker, both available in our store

Poinsettia adores the feather wand, but it helps to keep it low down since she's only got 3 legs and sometimes she falls down reaching for it. 

Odessa likes to play a lot more since her success with dieting. Hiding in a paper bag is great fun. 

All of these silly kitties are available for adoption and would love to come be sweet and silly for you.

Dallan Hope, the blind kitten

Dallan Hope and his siblings were found in a dumpster. Dallan's eyes were severely damaged and had to be removed, but he's doing fine. He's in a great foster home that has made some safety modifications to allow Dallan Hope to learn his way around. 

Here he is a few days after surgery, checking out the cat tree. He wasn't allowed on the cat tree unsupervised though, don't worry!

Dallan Hope is just one of the many kittens we take in each year that need costly medical intervention to save. With your help, we can continue to save sweet and loving cats like this that need extra help. 
Please consider donating to our medical fund to help us help the kitties

Vote for the Bird Kittens

Please vote for our kittens in Unleashed's photo contest. The picture with the most likes will win 200 pounds of food for the rescue.
These five kittens were born in a humane trap to a feral mother cat who was trapped for TNR (trap-neuter-return, the humane way of preventing overpopulation in feral colonies). Since they were born in mid-march, we named them after birds: Magpie, Hummingbird, Canary, Finch, and Chickadee. These sweet babies have been handled since they were born and will be available for adoption through Alley Cats and Angels after they are fully vetted (mid-June).

Foster homes needed!

Spring has some sub-seasons that come along with warmer weather and clear skies:
Yellow Season: characterized by sticky yellow powder on your car, your clothes and up your nose.
and Kitten Season: characterized by adorable little fluffballs found under porches, crawlspaces, garages and anywhere else that a mama cat deems safe

It's kitten season... Alley Cats and Angels is receiving a lot of requests for help but we need more foster homes. 

Please email for more information if you are interested in fostering and live in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area (or close surrounding areas). You can make a huge difference in the life of a cat and help save lives. THANK YOU.
Come help us out! We can provide litter and food. And of course, we provide all medical care for the cats.

Happy Adoption Photos, March 2015

March brought more great adoptions, to loving new homes for our cats and kittens. Especially great are the happy new families for some of our older cats, who came to us as adults and have had a hard time being placed. Everybody loves a kitten, but adult cats need love too.






Honky Tonk

Iowa and Maine went together!

Janome went home with the mother of a previous adopter

Monte Carlo

Pickles!!!! Pickles moved all the way to Georgia with a new family that came to see her and fell in love. Pickles has been hard to find a home for as she came to us as an adult and dislikes any competition for her affection from other cats.


Polka and Schnitzel got a whole family to live with

Sassafrass is very shy and didn't do well at adoption events, so she's been waiting for a home for a long time. She finally met the right person. 

Trapper! Trapper was adopted as a kitten and had to be returned (we always take our cats back when needed) and has found a new home this time around


Tulip fell in love with this doggie and convinced his people to bring her home too!
Update: here's a photo of Gus and Tulip, BFF
