Adoptable Cats

Looking for a furry feline friend? We don't blame you! Cats are all around great companions that dig living in Colorado. Seriously, they can watch the snow falling from the warmth of their kitty bed which is perfectly perched in a sunlit room next to their food, water and buzzer to summon you in case they need something.

Just take a look at some of these cool cats and prepare to open up your home so they can take it over! Once you've identified a pet that you're interested in, be sure to read our adoption process and download an adoption profile.

Check back often as our adoption pages are updated daily!

Circadian Cat Rhythms

Circadian Cat Rhythms

Dear Pet Column, I love my cat.  What I don’t love is my cat pouncing on my head at 2 in the morning. Every morning.  Please help…

Sincerely, Groggy

Dear Groggy, yes it is true, cats pick some inconvenient times to display their love for you (or a midnight snack). So if you want to achieve a normal biological circadian rhythm rather than a feline-illogical circadian nightmare you have two choices: get a day job and become nocturnal or give your nocturnal cat a day job to encourage being awake during the day (diurnal) and sleeping at night.
