Woodson

Although my name and physique would suggest that I am a great outdoorsman, I actually prefer lounging around my house on a soft bed. Once I am well-rested, I must admit I enjoy playing my foster sister, Demetria. She is a crazy mess, but I can keep up with her.

Lilly

Lilly is shy at first, but is learning to enjoy her new foster home. She is a sweet, playful, affectionate girl, who will walk back and forth across your lap while giving some serious thought to laying down on it!

Lilly has the sweetest, gentlest little meow, and calls her foster mother to come and play with her in the evening.

Arnie

Arnie began his life outdoors, so he is a bit more sensitive and unsure of things than some cats. However, this doesn't stop him from having fun and finding ways of showing affection in a manner in which he feels comfortable. He loves to run, jump and play with his toys and his cat friends in his foster home.

Peony

Peony is such a sweet kitty, and she is really blossoming!

Bunny didn't meet many loving people before coming to IAR, and is still shy until she is sure you will be gentle with her.

Bailey

Bailey has informed her IAR friends that she is now accepting applications for a loving human companion.

Becca

Becca is a beautiful kitten, both inside and out. Her right eye was infected as a very young kitten, leaving scar tissue called symblepharon, which partially covers her cornea and limits vision in her right eye to light and shadows but that doesn't slow her down!
