DSH, Black, Female
Nightshade is a sweet and loving young cat. She loves to sit on the screened porch and watch the birds and squirrels and nap in the sunshine. She also loves to be picked up for some snuggles. She always greets her foster family at the front door when they come home. As sweet and playful as she is, Nightshade is a total diva and would much prefer being an only kitty in the house.
DSH, Black, Female
Rae was the runt of the litter but she has made up for it with love and hugs. She loves to sleep on her foster mom’s lap and receive lots of attention. Once she is rested she is ready to go and play with the other kitties. She has no problem climbing the cat trees, hiding in tunnels or under the dresser so that she can jump out and tackle the other cats. She is fearless, but fun and is a total joy to have in your home.
DSH, Black & White Tuxedo, Female
Snuggling, exploring, playing and entertaining are my talents. I love to play, anytime, anywhere. Entertain the kids, I’m your girl. There is nothing more exciting than someone dangling a rod toy. Like a gymnast, I fly to swoop in and catch the toy. If everyone is busy, I can also entertain myself. I have fast little feet that will chase a ball across the floor with the skill of a soccer player. After some fun, I adore snuggling in a warm lap. I also love to eat! If you are looking for a playful, warm-hearted kitten, who likes other cats, dogs, and kids to play with, then look no further. We’re a match!
DMH, Orange Tabby, Male
Affectionate, loyal Reilly reaches out to ask you to hold his paw. He sticks by your side, greets you at the door to welcome you home, and wants to help with whatever you’re doing. He came to Purr Partners with a serious flea allergy which caused hair loss and discomfort. With time and loving care, his coat has regrown and he’s waiting for his forever family to welcome him into their home and hearts. He loves people and other kitties, wanting to rough-house and wrestle with a friend to their hearts’ content. Reilly plays, plays, plays! Teasers (feather wands) top the list of his favorite toys. When he’s all played out, he stretches himself out like a long kitty noodle or hops up in a lap to watch TV/help on the computer, or curls up next to you in bed. He doesn’t live with dogs, but with a proper introduction, a cat-friendly dog might make a great companion for him – as long as it doesn’t mind some daily energetic play, that is! Hey, everybody needs a little cardio to stay heart-healthy! Children will be delighted with his antics and loving nature, and he will be happy to keep family and guests company. There’s no being lonely with this friendly feline around!
DSH, Silver Tabby with White, Male
Remus began his life as a tiny feral kitten in Durham, but his lucky day came when he became a Purr Partners kitty. He has always been more cautious than his siblings, but he is slowly coming around to believe that people are to be trusted. Remus may be a little cautious around people, but he just LOVES other cats or kittens. He would make a great companion kitty to another cat who is lonely and needs a friend. Remus likes nothing better to curl up with a buddy either on the bed or at the top of a cat tree. Remus loves to be petted, but it has to be on his own terms. His greatest joy in life, though, is to have a kitty friend to run and play with, possibly do a little mutual grooming, and then snuggle up for a nap.
DSH, Dilute Torti, Female
Fancy, fun, affectionate kitten, that’s me. I am a pretty girl dressed in colorful silver fur accented with apricot and white. As soon as I see you, I will run to you purring a greeting. Please scoop me up into your arms for lots of cuddles and hugs. After some cuddle and lap time, I would love to play. Rod toys, small balls to chase or play mice to fetch and carry about are my favorites. I like gentle children, dogs and other kitties. Friendly, sweet and affectionate makes me a great choice for any family looking for a laid back, cuddly kitten. Let me show you how much I can love you.
DSH, Tortie, Female
Ronan is a pretty tortie kitten. At first, she appears shy, but she’s just observing. Once she’s done watching all the happenings in the room, she loves to play and will do a little dance while she rubs up against your legs for pets. Occasionally, Ronan will give little nose kisses to you. She was rescued from the outdoors, but now enjoys being a little princess living inside with her foster family. She likes playing with her toys and chasing her foster mate in a game of tag. Ronan is a climber and loves having a perch where she can watch activities. She would enjoy a quiet home where she can play and have a cat tree to climb with a small perch.
DSH, Black, Female
Rue is a friendly girl with lots to say! She has an opinion about everything and loves loves loves attention. As you can see she has striking eyes and shiny black fur and along with her great personality she makes a delightful kitty. Rue would love to have a home of her own and hopes that she will get her forever home soon as she has lots of love to give a very special person.
DSH, Dilute Calico, Female
Sangria has been in foster care her whole life. Her mother was rescued by Purr Partners and promptly gave birth to 5 kittens. Sangria is the only one left. She was the shyest out of her litter and remains reclusive with people. She gets along, well, with other cats and has been with other cats her whole life. She is a beautiful, unique looking girl with vivid green eyes who has, quietly, been overlooked due to her timid nature. We think that Sangria would do best with someone that has experience working with shy cats or a patient person who is willing to work with her and accept her for who she is. We never give up on a cat, so, if you are that exceptional owner, who can appreciate beauty through the imperfections, please contact us about possibly adding Sangria to your home. She’d also be a good companion for a lonely cat.
DSH, Black & White, Male
Scotty came into rescue when he was turned in to a high kill shelter, and his back legs did not work very well. After going to our vet, it was determined that with age and exercise his legs would more than likely heal on their own, and so they have. Scotty gets around fine now, and no one would know that he had any trouble when he was little. Scotty loves other kitties and will play and cuddle with them. He is a little cautious when he is first picked up, but will then settle in and start to purr. He loves feathers and climbing to the top of the trees in his room. He’s a very sweet boy and don’t you just love his eye patch!
DSH, White w/Tabby, Male
True to my name, I am an explorer and I will find my way into your heart! I am a sweetheart who wants only two things: your attention, and a place to lounge nearby. I am a versatile little man, allowing me to be your perfect companion (even more fun if there’s a small human, another cat, or a dog in the mix!). Bring me home and see how quickly I will adapt to my new surroundings!
DSH, White w/Tabby, Male
Seuss is a quirky little feline. He likes to rhyme, he likes to pounce, you might even say he can bounce! He loves one, he loves them all, he might even be able to make you fall (in love with him)! Seuss is a sweet little guy that has been in foster care since the day he was born. He loves to chase his mice and coming looking for some pets. He adores children since he can play with them too! He gets along fantastically with other cats, and loving a dog may take a little more time. As much as he loves to play, he loves sitting near his human just as much. Seuss has just discovered that he quite likes lap sitting and wants to explore this delight someone. He’ll take just a little time to check out his new home, get comfortable, and then watch him blossom. Won’t you give Seuss a chance to win your heart? His brother Spiderman is his best friend and they make a great pair if you are looking for two kittens.
DLH, Gray, Female
Shady Lady is a big old sweetheart! Her green eyes are set off by her plush, blue-grey coat. She loves affection on her own terms and doesn’t like to be held. Her favorite hobbies are chasing a ribbon toy, lounging, and sunbathing on the screened porch. Shady Lady is social and will seek out her humans so she can spend time in the same room as them. She sleeps on the foot of her foster mom’s bed. When she’s extra happy, expect head bumps and cheek-to-cheek rubs from this regal lady. As she is a true queen, Shady Lady would do best as an only pet.
DSH, Black & White Tuxedo, Male
Shandy – is an amazing cat that is very, very good with young children. He is very patient and doesn’t run away when they approach him. He allows kisses and pets and an occasional hug. When he is ready for a break, he just gets up and quietly walks away. With his perfect black and white tuxedo, he is a stunning boy. He has a big personality to go with his looks. Climbing on the cat tree is a favorite past time for him. He has a steady personality with a playful side too. Shandy gets along with kitties of all ages. Loves toys of any kind. He is not shy and will always greet you when you come into the room. He is also an explorer – I don’t think there is an inch of the kitty room that he hasn’t been in. When he is ready to rest he likes to curl up on the couch or bed with you. Handsome Shandy would be a great addition to any family – especially one with a playmate human or feline
DSH, White with Tabby, Male
I am just a big bundle of love in a soft, fuzzy body. I am adventurous and ready for fun. Since I am very playful, I hope my forever home will have another kitten who likes to run around and wrestle as I do. I am extremely friendly and love to be around people. I purr easily and after a good play session, I am happy to settle on a lap for a nap or some cuddles. I get along well with other cats, and I am not intimidated by the large gentle dog that lives in my foster family’s home even though I just recently met her. If you take me home with you, I promise to provide endless entertainment.
DSH, Buff, Male
I am a very sweet kitten that was bottle-fed – which means I think my owner is my mom! I love people. I am still a kitten though, so I also love to play and have fun with other kittens and lots of toys – especially ping pong balls. I am very cute with Buff coloring. I really like to sleep on, near you and to be pet and loved. If you cuddle with me I will purr a lot! I will make anyone a perfect kitty.
DSH, Torbie, Female
I am a curious, playful little puffball with a sweet disposition. I enjoy batting around toy mice, exploring, and chasing my siblings. I am confident, friendly, and very entertaining. Scoop me up and carry me around and I will show you how much I love getting cuddles by purring loudly. Neck scratches are my favorite. I have lots of love to share. Can I become part of your family?
DSH, Gray w/White, Male
I am a little quieter than some of the other kitties but I am still very loving and cute. If you look at me just right I look like a little mouse!!! I love to be held and given any attention. I purr all the time. I was a bottle-fed baby kitten and was the smallest of the litter. I am so very very sweet and really love attention.
DSH, Silver w/ White Tabby, Female
I would prefer to be on your lap than anywhere else in the world. I am very loving and love to be loved. I purr all the time. And you can always love on me! I play with my other kitties, toys or my fosters and really enjoy it. Aren’t I the most beautiful little kitten! I will make anyone very happy as long as they are looking for a silly, beautiful lap kitty!!!
DSH Orange Tabby with White, Male
Sunkist is the cutest, silliest, funniest boy who loves to play and entertain. He is quite active and mischievous. He likes toys and loves to chase the broom when you sweep. He gets along very well with other cats. He loves treats. So why has he been in foster care for over a year and a half? In January of 2016, he was just a half-grown kitten pulled from a high kill shelter. He came to us with a severe sinus infection where he was sneezing blood. He was treated with multiple courses of antibiotics but every time he came off of antibiotics, he would start sneezing and eventually would develop sinus and respiratory infections. We tried different antibiotics and extended courses of antibiotics but Sunkist could never stay well for long. He was even seen at the vet school but there has been no cure found for him. His infections are not contagious and are caused by damage in his sinuses from when he was a kitten so he will always be susceptible to infections. He will periodically need antibiotics and steroids. Despite all of this he is a happy boy that would love nothing more than a real home for the first time in his life. He is not a placid lap cat because he is so busy all of the time. He would love a family with older kids or other cats to play with – maybe even a dog! He is stuck in foster care through no fault of his own. We have found homes for cats with many different medical issues before and we know that there is a home out there for Sunkist. Could it be you that will open your heart and home to this deserving boy?
DLH, Orange Tabby, Male
Yes, I’m gorgeous – and who doesn’t love a long-haired orange and white boy? Life started out tough for me when I was outside, scared and alone, and eventually, I was brought into a high kill shelter where things were not looking so good because I was scared and shy. Thank goodness Purr Partners took a chance on me, and I have made so much progress with my foster mom that she thinks I am ready for someone to be my forever person. I love my food – what’s not to love? – have finally gained some weight and am looking my spunky best! I love to play because that’s something I never got to do, and my favorite toy is the toilet paper roll – just love those things! I really, really like finger kisses and scratches under my chin, but sometimes, I get a bit scared and will forget and scratch you a bit. I’m learning that’s not good, and I’m doing it less and less, so could you please just give me a chance? My foster mom says I’m on my way to being the wonderful cat I was meant to be, so please, cat people, could you consider me when you think about adopting?
DSH, Torti w/White, Female
Along with her beautiful name and exotic good looks, Tallulah Belle has a big personality. She loves hard and plays hard and is more than happy to chase a toy. She loves to play with the other cats, then flops over to enjoy some face and ear rubs. She loves to sleep with her foster family and will purr the night away, though occasionally needs to be reminded not to grab feet!
After being surrendered to Purr Partners, Tallulah needed some time to rest and recuperate. She was immediately affectionate and has enjoyed all the love and attention from her foster family, as well as plenty of opportunities for food and naps. While she limps from an old injury that no longer hurts, she doesn’t let it stop her. She is now feeling great and looking for her forever home that will treat her like the Princess that she is!
DSH, Torti w/White, Female
This beautiful lady was living the good life…until she got sick. And then her family didn’t want her anymore. So they took her to the shelter and that’s where Purr Partners stepped in. We brought Tana into our program and got her to the vet right away to see what was going on with her. She was very thin but had a great appetite. She had no other noticeable symptoms. We were certain that it would be her thyroid which we could fix with surgery and she would be as good as new. After a thorough exam, the vet determined that it was not her thyroid. Her lab work was normal, yet she continued to eat very well but remained at her weight of just over 6lbs. The most likely diagnosis for Tana is intestinal lymphoma. Other than being thin, you would never know that she is sick. Her prognosis right now is good, but anything can happen. She is not currently on any medication but could require daily steroids if her appetite decreases. Tana could live for many years. It’s impossible to predict. She is so loving and just wants a warm lap to snuggle in for a nap. She is front declawed but will still make biscuits and use the scratching post. She is not a huge fan of other cats as she seems to be frightened of them. Without her claws, she has no defenses so that could be why. She seems fine with quiet dogs. This gorgeous girl would love to live out the rest of her days in a quiet, loving and patient home where she will get to enjoy being pampered. As a hospice foster, Purr Partners will continue to cover any medical costs for Tana for the rest of her life. Please consider opening your home and your heart to this very deserving girl. She will reward you with so much love.
DSH, White w/ Calico, Female
Tapioca is a friendly petite cat with a personality like no other! She walks up to just about anyone just to say hello and will follow you around just for the company. She wags her tail nonstop and chases it like a dog. Although she doesn’t like being held for very long, she loves being anywhere people are. Tapioca gets nervous when she hears dogs, but she’s great with kids and is very affectionate. If you’re looking for a funny loyal cat to spend time with you, Tapioca’s your girl!
DSH, Torbie, Female
This little girl has had quite a rough start in life. She was found by a Rolesville Police Officer crying under a bush when he did a traffic stop. Purr Partners took her in and within three days she became quite ill. She was diagnosed with panleukopenia, which is a disease that is usually fatal for cats. This is one of the diseases that cats are vaccinated for when they are kittens and again as adults, and the vaccine is very effective, but poor Teka had never had any shots. It was touch and go for about 10 days, but Teka survived and she is now doing just fine with no aftereffects. She acts like any other kitten, running and playing with her housemates and rolling and wrestling on the floor. Teka is a sweetheart and loves to be picked up and cuddled, and she loves to play with toys like little mice and balls. Teka was a lucky little girl when the police officer found her, and lucky when she survived panleukopenia. Now she’s hoping she’ll be lucky again and find a family that will love her and take care of her forever.
DSH, Tuxedo, Female

DSH, Brown Tabby, Male
Tyson is definitely a fighter. He came to Purr Partners from the shelter only 2 weeks old, hungry and alone. He has thrived from day one and is the social butterfly of the bunch. As you can see, Tyson is definitely a “Tabby” with stripes on his back, spots on his belly and the perfect “M” on his forehead. One of the legends that try to explain where the “M” came from, states that they are frown lines for staring at a mouse hole – waiting for a mouse to appear. That mouse better stay put – my money will be on Tyson to catch it. He also exhibits all the personality traits of sweet tabbies – friendly, happy-go-lucky, intelligent, sassy, very affectionate and a wonderful buddy. He enjoys hanging out on the cat tree and sitting in the window watching the outside world. He has great manners – loves his scratching post. Tyson loves his humans and would be a wonderful addition to any household. He is waiting for his purrfect furever home.
DSH Max Mix, Dilute Tortie, Female
Every kitty that comes into Purr Partners is special, and Viola is no exception! She is a beautiful dilute Tortie Manx mix – no tail! Viola came to us from a shelter – not sure how someone could abandon such a beautiful girl. Their loss is Purr Partners gain! She never seems to get too upset about anything and is a loving companion that adores being with people. She is talkative and rubs up against your legs to greet you. She does best in a calm environment – and gets along well with other kitties – especially younger kittens. She likes to mother them! Did you know in ancient times it was considered good luck if a tortie took up residence at your home? It is also said that tortoiseshell cats bring money, have psychic abilities and can see into the future. Viola is waiting to bring good luck and fortune to her furever family!
