Featured Pet
2 year old 
Orange tabby

Marmalade is our longest cat resident. She came to us from another rescue with her two kittens. They were adopted quickly and Marmalade is still patiently waiting for her home.


Shy at first, Marmalade has been joining volunteers and visitors for some petting sessions and enjoys playing with a squiggly worm prey wand. Female ginger cats are a little harder to come by, there are roughly three males to one female ginger cat.

Marmalade will do well with a calm cat-mate or two.

Marmalade has been with us since May 1, 2019
