Kitty Harbor will be closing for the season on Saturday, January 18th. Late December, we had over 30 kittens brought in after being fostered, they were too young to bring in before then. Because of all the foster kittens that came in, we will be open for adoptions the next 3 Saturdays from 12-6pm (January 4th, January 11th & January 18th). We are also doing some adoptions by appointment. If you are interested in setting up an appointment to adopt a cat or kitten, please call 206.935.1919. Thank you!!

Adoption Weekend Nov 23rd

Posted November 23rd, 2013 by Jess | 0 Comments »

This weekend here at Kitty Harbor we have many many cats and kittens up for adoption. In fact, we just got 30 new kitties in this week who are all looking for great homes. There are polydactyl cats, Maine coons, tux, calico, you name it. Remember to come in for adoptions this weekend from noon until 6pm. We’ll see you there! And here are photos of just a few of those up for adoption:

Rocky is a WONDERFULLY affectionate purrbox who is special in many ways. Only four months ago, he was a newly born kitten due to be euthanized after being born with muscle coordination problems. (His mother received a distemper vaccination during her pregnancy, which resulted in most of the litter dying shortly after birth. Rocky’s eye had to be removed due to damage from infection.) Although he has no trouble at all using the litter box, he wobbles and scoots from place to place rather than walking. He LOVES being held, and is one of the smartest and most affectionate cats that you will ever meet. His only requirement is that he live on a single floor home where he doesn’t have to worry about falling down the stairs (remember, this is a very tipsy kitty!)

Maine Man will greet you when you arrive at Kitty Harbor.

The excitement is palpable for adoptions this weekend.

The feather toy gets lots of play here at the shelter.

Butterscotch was adopted last weekend!

Knight will warm your heart and your lap.


Amber will be waiting for you.

There’s always time for being silly when you’re a kitty.

Reach out and touch someone… someone who will adopt you!

It’s always nap time here @ Kitty Harbor.

No really, it’s always nap time!

The cat nests are usually full here.

Kayla has been declawed and needs a special home with only hardwood floors and no rugs.

Adoption Weekend September 7th

Posted September 8th, 2013 by Jess | 4 Comments »

This weekend we have over 65 cats looking for homes and we hope you’ll come down to Kitty Harbor and find you new family member. There are many orange tabbies as well as black and white tuxedo cats. As usual we are open for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from noon until 6pm. Here are photos of those looking for homes:

Peaches came to us as a victim of domestic violence. In the home where the girlfriend was stabbed, Peaches was beaten and kicked with her hind leg badly broken. This required surgery to repair and Dr. Mike at Selha did an amazing job setting pins in the bone and at a discount. Peaches is now doing well and we expect a full recovery without future issues. She will need one more sugery to remove the pin from her separated bones and we are seeking donation to offset the cost.

Gerald was on death row at a shelter in Spokane but was adopted today at Kitty Harbor!

Snowflake is looking for a home.

A little girl found a friend @ Kitty Harbor.

Oscar is very friendly and looking for a family.

It’s all in the eyes.

Willard knows just how to pose for the camera.

Sunbeams are a perfect place for a cat nap.

Cat trees are also pretty good for cat naps.

Lonni with the long legs is still looking for the right situation.

Pick me, pick me!
