Mandy is a 9-year old declawed lap cat currently missing a permanent lap. She is a little butterball who enjoys nothing more than a good lap to sit in and a person to cuddle with. Mandy is friendly and charming and warms up to people immediately. She will be a wonderful additon to any loving hhome. Won't you give this plush little cat a chance?
Gretel finally arrived in a VA foster home at the end of March. These two sweethearts are thrilled to be out of the high-kill North Carolina shelter and in a home environment again! Gracie & Gretel are both up to date on their shots, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, spayed, and front declawed. Gracie & Gretel are sisters and best friends. They need to be adopted together. They are 2 1/2 years olda
Gracie is the sweet brown tabby. She loves to chat and tell you about her day. Gracie loves to sit on your lap and loves to give kisses and nuzzle you. She is a very affectionate little girl! Gracie is nervous about loud noises. She loves to snuggle in her cat bed. Gracie is a sweet little thing...and she'd love to find her forever home soon. Could it be yours?
Gretel is a sleek black kitty with fantastic eyes! She does not photograph well...as she is much cuter in person! Gretel also has little tufts from the tip of her ears that are very cute. She is not as vocal as her sister Gracie, but she does like to talk. Gretel will meet you at the door for her love...and then she'll head off to explore and discover. Gretel likes to be in the know and does appear to be the more dominant sibling. Playful and busy, Gretel adores her laser pointer and any toys she can get her paws on! Gretel has a fun and quirky personality. She would love to find her forever home soon...could it be with you?
While he's generally playful when engaged (he chases after small toys and strings - the simplier the toy the better!), he loves to relax and just chill out. He shows appreciation of head rubs with soft purring and kneading and likes to sleep at the foot of the bed to keep it warm for his human.
Snoopy has lived with another cat previously, but he's currently a solo cat. He has no known experience interacting with dogs. Snoopy is a gentle soul. He's up-to-date on his shots, uses the litter box faithfully, and is overall a considerate member of the family.
Margo was living a happy, well-fed life until her elderly owner passed away at home last year. The EMTs arrived at Margo's house with sirens blaring and strangers tromping around, and then Margo and her brother Darren lived in a house with no people for the next 10 weeks. Though they were fed and monitored by a neighbor once a day, the traumatic loss of her person made Margo stop eating.
Margo and Darren, both 6 years old, were rescued and assigned to different foster homes by Homeward Trails. With lots of TLC, Margo gradually recovered her appetite and health. Now she's a colorful, buxom love-bug with beautiful green eyes who likes nothing better than cuddling up between her foster parents on the couch or in bed.
A cat who loves to be petted, Margo will "make biscuits" against your arm with her declawed paws while serenading you with a truly impressive assortment of coos, purrs, chirps, and sighs. She doesn't feel the need to race around or climb furniture, so a cozy apartment would suit her fine -- as long as she has someone to cuddle with for a few hours a day!

Puff is a stunning young male Maine Coon mix who came in with Teddy Bear and Patches in case you are looking for more than one cat. He is also in foster care with Harley if you want a male/female pair. This loving boy made his way to rescue when his person had to have back surgery and could no longer care for her animals.
Puff is about 1 year old and has a long and fluffy coat. He is very friendly and loving. He is living in Washington DC.
He loves to play with toys, sleep under the covers in bed and hang out with people. He is excited every morning and evening when his wet food arrives and is great with his litter box.
Cougar is about 4-5 years old, has a handsome medium length coat and a sweet and friendly personality. He is living in Washington, DC.
Catrina came to Homeward Trails under unfortunate circumstances. She had a wonderful and loving home, but her owner became terminally ill and was no longer able to take care of her. But that hasn't gotten Catrina's spirits down! She is a VERY friendly cat with lots to love! She will keep you anchored to the couch while she warms up your lap... and will climb upon unwary nappers and sit on them like a queen. She is de-clawed but still knows how to have a good time with some catnip. She loves to follow her foster parents around the house and sleep on their feet at night. Catrina is a true love bug and is a fantastic pet. Won't you give this gal a chance? Catrina is living in a foster home in Northern Virginia.
