About Artemis (Courtesy Post)

Artemis is  a 1 year and 4 month old cat who comes when called and loves to cuddle and rub.  Artemis was rescued from life in the parking lot of a car dealership in July of 2020. But then, this concerned citizen's family member had an allergic reaction to Artemis. Since then, Artemis has been living in their backyard and looking for a new home. They took her to the vet in early August for flea meds and the FVRCP vaccine, but she has not yet been spayed (appointment pending). Artemis is very loving and playful. She needs a person who can give her a little time to adjust to new surroundings, become confident, and let us know who she is. An experienced cat person with patience, or even a home open to having an indoor/outdoor cat, may be best. Artemis loves being around people and will make a great companion in the right home. Artemis is currently being fed in a garage, and she enjoys exploring around indoors on her own and with people present. She's curious, friendly, and watches her people as they work on things in the back yard. She even sticks around when the vacuum cleaner turns on!      Artemis is not owned by The Dancing Cat. To meet Artemis or learn more, please email us at

Frankie has a resilience and zeal for life that will capture your heart. She is so much more than her origin story but to understand where she is today, we have to acknowledge how far she has come. Frankie was shot with a pellet gun and some of the pellet fragments were lodged into her spine. Despite great efforts and surgery, Frankie remains semi-paralyzed in her back legs. She is undergoing daily physical therapy to stimulate her muscles, which she enjoys and cooperates with, especially if treats are involved.  Despite her therapy, it is likely she will never walk normally again. This does not slow Frankie down in the least! Wind up a toy and watch Frankie go go go! She zips around with the zoomies like any cat, and chases toys and shadows like a pro. Frankie likes to join her foster Mom on the couch or climb up into her cat tree. Nothing stops this adventurer! Except maybe bedtime with her person, she loves to share the bed or couch.    Caring for Frankie requires some experience with cats. She will need to continue her low-level physical therapy routine. Frankie can't totally control when she pees or poops. To prevent leakage and to avoid clean-up, her bladder is expressed three times a day. Any potential adopter will need to understand, learn and commit to properly caring for Frankie's needs while understanding they may change in the future. Frankie eats out of a slow feeder to help keep her weight at a healthy level.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Our adoption application is on our website here:   show less

Jonas - Sweet young adult cat seeking a fospice home. The Dancing Cat is searching for a fospice (foster + hospice) home for a very special cat. Jonas, a four-year-old tabby, enjoys cuddling for hours on end and long walks to his food bowl. It may take Jonas a day or two to truly warm up to his human, but once he does, he will not leave their side. He enjoys being no further than a few feet from his human at all times, often following them throughout the house. Jonas is very caring and protective of his human. If they decide to sleep in on a weekend, Jonas may wake them up to check that they’re okay. If they work for too long, Jonas may come get them and guide them to the couch. Jonas is not very playful, and toys don’t generally hold his attention for very long. If you are open to being the forever this boy deserves for as long as he has, please apply. Jonas has an inoperable tumor in his abdomen and his time here may be weeks, months or maybe even a year. He eats a prescription diet, is on prednisolone to slow the progression of the growth, and is very easy to care for. This cat is in a foster home but his foster dad is leaving to return to his home country in a few short weeks. Please fill out our online adoption application and we'll set you up to meet him as soon as possible. We can contribute to Jonas's veterinary care through the end of his life.  Contact us for details or if you'd like to donate.  Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped. show less
