In memory of our beloved shelter residents who crossed the Rainbow Bridge far too soon. You are part of our history, and will not be forgotten.

Domestic Shorthair, Female
Color: Dilute tortie
Special needs: none
Exotic, beautiful and friendly describes our dilute tortie girl, CeCe. Her former caregiver recently had to relocate to another town in housing that did not permit pets. She wanted the best for CeCe so she brought her to us.
This little gal is friendly and outgoing. Very affectionate, she loves being a lap cat and being groomed. Her favorite thing is to sleep on the bed with her person. She is quite playful, enjoying a variety of cat toys and hunting down bugs and moths.
Like most tortie girls CeCe is not fond of other cats, so would do best being the only cat in a household. She has not had any exposure to living with a dog, but most torties will accept a dog who will either allow her to be the queen of the house, or is not interested in her comings and goings.
CeCe is going to be a great addition to the right family. If you are a lover of torties you will want to come see if that family is yours.

When Jeffy became ill, we rushed him to the veterinarian, and after several tests and procedures, he was diagnosed with an enlarged heart. We brought him back to Safe Haven, the only home he had known for most of the 11 years of his short life. It was our hope that he would continue to do well on his new medications and have more good years with us. This was not to be. Regretfully, our Jefferson passed over the Rainbow Bridge on the afternoon of July 12, 2015. He was in the home he loved, surrounded by people who loved him. He will be greatly missed by PFOA staff and volunteers who cared for him all of his life.

In the early morning hours of Thursday, November 19, 2015, our Hope crossed the Rainbow Bridge to reunite with her Best Friend Forever, Maggie. Hope was with us for what seems like such a short time, and yet, many of us have difficulty remembering when she wasn’t here.
Hope’s 11 ½ years were not always easy. Injuries sustained as a small kitten left her near death, and without the use of her hind legs. When she was a little older, she tried to use a cart that had been made for her, but she didn’t like it. Eventually she just relied on her ability to drag her back legs anywhere she wished to go.
When Hope was two years old, she met her Mama Linda (Nielsen), who cared for her and loved her for the rest of her life. Mama Linda’s golden retriever, Maggie, was also a paraplegic, and Maggie and Hope were inseparable for the rest of their lives.
Maggie took the journey across the Bridge six months, to the day, before Hope. We like to think Maggie wanted to make sure everything was perfect for Hope.
We will all miss her, but we are thankful for the 11 ½ years of her life with us. We will remember her for her strength, loyalty, love of life, and most of all, hope.
Alester was an active 14 years young cat who came to live at Safe Haven when his owner passed away. He thrived on human interaction, and would follow people around, wagging his tail and wanting to join in on
whatever was going on. Because he was FIV positive, he could only go into a home with other FIV positive cats or as a single cat. For well over a year he remained at Safe Haven, happily greeting volunteers, staff and visitors.
One day, a retired gentleman came to Safe Haven, met Alester, and it was love at first sight for both of them. Alester had found his new forever home. He and his foster dad were inseparable. They settled into a lifestyle that should have lasted several years. Regretfully, that was not to be. After a wonderful Thanksgiving week where Alester was the center of his new family’s attention, he began to lose his appetite. After visiting the vet, he was diagnosed with lymphoma and went downhill rapidly. Sadly, our sweet Alester crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 30, 2013. He was a grand old fellow, with an endearing personality and flawless manners, and he will be greatly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
When Trixie came to Safe Haven in September of 2014, she was literally starved to death. Even more disturbing was her emotional detachment. She lay quietly in her cage with her face pressed to a corner, eating but not responding to any of us. After much good food, fluids and great vet care, she was able to greet us with a tiny little “meow.” She had a home and family to love her that Christmas. When the days grew warmer, volunteers would take her out to enjoy the sunshine. We all knew Trixie would not be with us long, and on the afternoon of March 11, 2015, she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. She is very much missed by all of us at PFOA who cared for her and loved her.

There are few things harder in this world than saying goodbye to a beloved friend! Our little friend, Faith moved our hearts in so many ways–she was found abandoned on a mountaintop near death and we took her in, she had a neurological disorder and we loved her the more dearly for her disability, she became blind and we admired her strength and ability to move forward. She was the most special little girl, and we all held her closely to our hearts and rejoiced that she had come to live with her PFOA family. We thought that she would be with us (or maybe with a wonderful adoptive family) for many years to come.
Our precious Faith became ill and passed away on October 1, 2012. Faith had gone to live at Barker House so she could enjoy a more homelike environment with her good friend, diabetic kitty Marcus. She was adored by her foster mom there, and enjoyed the quiet days spent lounging in a sunny windowsill and exploring a whole new world.
We will miss this ethereal little soul–she was, unfortunately, too fragile to continue her life with us here on this earth. But the lessons of love and faith that she taught us will remain as her gift to us all.

Meet Baby Wayne, a stunning long-haired tuxedo cat. Baby Wayne came from the same home as Sir Chuck, however they are not bonded and can be adopted separately. This handsome boy is very vibrant and incredibly easy to get along with. He loves people and thrives on being petted. He’s very difficult to photograph because all he wants to do is butt heads, jump in your lap and be held. He would be a wonderful addition to any cat loving family. We hope you will come and meet our Baby Wayne – he’s definitely worth the trip!
