Paisley was found abandoned with her 3 brothers at about 3 weeks old. They had to be bottle fed until they could eat on their own. When they got old enough the brothers found their forever homes, but Paisley is still looking!

She is FIV positive, which she probably contracted from her mother. She will have to be an “indoor only” kitty. But not necessarily an ONLY kitty. She is playing & running around with her foster mom’s cats.
Paisley is 4 months old, healthy & very active! She loves running, playing and chasing anything she can push across a slick floor! She sometimes plays a little too rough, so it’s best there are no small children at home.
When she’s tired she will curl up on your lap. At bed time, she’ll sleep under the covers with you. And when it’s breakfast time… she’ll ‘nose kiss’ you awake! (touch your nose with her nose)
She doesn’t have the typical female cat personality, she is affectionate & loving.

Meowly Cyrus

Contact: Susan, 210-803-9334, susanschmahlenberger@msn.com

Meowly is an enigma.  History before being dumped among a colony of feral cats is unknown. Friendly to people, the colony caretaker brought her in to be fostered and adopted. Careful observation brought to light that she likely had been at least mistreated if not abused physically before being abandoned.
A straight on approach to pet her causes Meowly to recoil, although once she is touched, she is in full appreciation.  Any other direction of approach is acceptable.  Possibly this has to do with a method she was harmed, but it may just be an idiosyncrasy.  There is not a mean bone in Meowly’s body. Never has she attempted to bite or try to slap. Her purr is vibrating and she plays well alone, entertaining herself.  
With cats, Meowly asserts the bully by stare down method.  Speculation is that she has been bullied, and the home would be more peaceful if she is the only cat.
Sporting a grey/brown classic torbie pattern, her coat is as extraordinarily soft.  Meowly adores bring brushed, combed and petted.  There is no fight to clip claws or clean ears.
Hopefully there is someone out there willing to take Meowly on as a project.  With patience and time for her to realize that not all people inflict pain she will learn to relax and become confident that she is secure.   Maybe in time she will advance to be able to rule her house and staff as any self-respecting cat should!
Remember, with the community cat adoption program at SAFCC, if you adopt a cat that does not work out, we will accept her return….  Nothing to lose, and most likely a thankful cat and best buddy to gain.

Rocky is a delightful, gray and white, male, tabby adult cat.  He was dumped in a neighborhood sick with a bad cold and mange, underweight, and unloved.  Fortunately, Rocky was abandoned in the driveway of a San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition’s adoption program foster!   Months later, after intense treatment, Rocky has turned into a handsome, Herculean, hunk!   Sadly, he is FIV positive.  Rocky has trained his staff to brush him daily as is expected of his majesty.  Rocky’s favorite times of the day are mealtimes.  He thoroughly enjoys his food and is so grateful.  He is a playful, vocal boy who will entertain himself if you are away.

Houston is a one year old soft gray and cream colored male cat who was born beneath a man’s trailer and was rescued when he was younger.  He is very sweet and lovable and loves people.  He gets along well with dogs and other cats.  However, Houston has had two seizures now.  Both were precipitated by placing him in a carrier for transport.  He is otherwise healthy and playful and you would never even guess that he has ever had a seizure.  He has been evaluated by a vet after each seizure and the vet thinks that his seizures may be triggered by fear/stress. 

We have used a harness and leash the only time he has been outside the house since then and there has been no further seizure activity.  He does not require medication or anything special other than avoiding closed in carriers (he might do fine in something like a wire kennel for transport).  He is one of the sweetest cats we have ever had (as is all of his brothers–this whole litter is sweet). He has been neutered, microchipped, combo tested, and has had all of his vaccinations (I believe he will be due again in November)

Sunny is a orange and white tabby cat that was abandoned on the streets.  He was obviously loved and cared for at one time.  He has a microchip but the phone numbers are not working numbers.  He was rescued from the campus of retirement villas, so I believe that his pet parent may have either become unable to care for him or passed away and the family put him out.  He had been out for several months when the security guard notified me and there was another feral tom cat there that was seen jumping on him.  I believe that is where he contracted FIV. 

He has never been ill with any infections since I have had him but he does have renal disease.  This is being controlled very well with medications.  He lives with other cats here at my house but would prefer to be an only pet.  He does not like dogs and would also not do well with another dominant male cat.  He is definitely a lap kitty and loves to give snuggle!  I believe he is about 8-9 years old. He is neutered and has all of his vaccinations (he will be due in December).


My name is Maddie. I am a 4 month old female tuxedo. My siblings and I were found in a ditch during a rainstorm in Mc Allen, Texas. My foster mom took us home and cared for us till we were old enough to take us to a shelter so we could be adopted.

I was the only one they would not take in because I had a cloudy eye. She took me to the vet and nursed me back to health. My eye right eye is cloudy due to an upper respiratory infection. No shelter wanted to take me in because of my eye. My mom called the SAFCC and they told her if she drove me to San Antonio they would find me a foster mom and help adopt me so off I went on a five hour drive north to find my furrever home.

My new foster mom took me to Dr. Bonney a Veterinary Ophthalmologist in San Antonio. Other than a right eye which has no vision and needs a wipe in the morning my left eye has vision. I can see and have no problems getting around.

I am the sweetest angel, turn on my purr motor as soon as you pick me up or start to love on me. I need time to adjust to other cats and kittens and this is because I can smell them but feel threatened by them but once I get used to them I am fine. I love to play with my toys, started to climb the stairs and love to explore.

Cabo, is a brown tabby, teenager kitten about 8 months old (as of 11/2015).  When he was a kitten he had limited function of his back legs and he had to drag them to move about.  Thanks to good veterinary care and his foster mom’s TLC,  Cabo has grown a up to be a teenager in good health.   His back legs are still a bit weak, however that doesn’t slow him down for he gets around easily. Due to his minor handicap, Cabo will have to be an indoor only cat. He is a very sweet guy, playful, loves toys, loves to sit in the window, bounds up and down the stairs.  He loves the company of other cats.  He would make a great pet.

My name is Alice, I am a six month old (as of 1/21/16) brown tabby.  I would like to share my story with you. My colony feeder noticed one night I was injured so he called the SAFCC helpline. Your volunteer trapper DJ took the challenge in the middle of the night to rescue me. Then I was rushed to an ER vet. I was diagnosed with a prolapsed rectum! They reinserted the organ, stitched me up and off I went. Recover for seven days and I would be back on the streets. Well, that was not the case at all! After several attempts and doctor visits to keep my organ in I was referred to a specialist.

My foster mom took me to Affordable Pet Care on Grissom Rd. I meet with Dr. Earl who was kind enough to want to help me.  After all, I was a two month old kitten with no income. I spent many days with him and his lovely staff. They took exceptional care of me.  I became a regular patient, first name basis and even had my own kennel. I even had to eat special food. I am now completely recovered and have blossomed into a sweet, playful and loving girl. I will not have to go back on the streets because I am friendly. I am now going to adoption events in search of my furr ever home.
