At Baypath, we do our best to collect both behavior and medical histories on our animals, as well as do our own evaluations and observations. We gather as much information as we can to suggest what we believe to be the ideal situation for each animal. We do this in the interest of the animal's quality of life as well as to assist our potential adopters. As always, safety is of the utmost importance in our decision making process.

We are always more than happy to discuss our animals with you and highly encourage you to call or email the shelter at info@baypathhumane.org if you have any questions or want more information regarding any of our animals.

Josie is a quiet girl who enjoys watching the world around her. She might hiss when first approached but don't let that fool you. This sweetheart likes being pet and staying near the action. She takes a little longer to warm up and venture around but with patience she will make someone a great companion and is starting to play with a variety of kitty toys. Josie must go home with a confident cat to help encourage her outgoing side and should be in an adult only home.

Presley is a spunky girl with a sweet side. While she may not approach people right away she doesn't shy away either. Presley enjoys being pet and will relax when being held. With patience she will be a lap cat. This petite girl has beautiful markings and is full of curiosity and bravery and always needs to be the first to check new things out. She hasn't met a toy she doesn't like and the wand toy is a great way to interact with her.

Meet Sadie Mae! This sweet girl is looking for home to spend her glory years. She came to us because her owner could no longer care for her. She has lived with a cat before and done well.

Sadie Mae is playful when she is in the mood, and otherwise spends her time sleeping or with people. When she is comfortable she can be a lap cat. Sadie Mae has hyperthyroidism and will need lifelong medication, but that doesn't slow her down! Come meet her today!

Our sweet boy Blue Lagoon needs some special care. Unfortunately, Blue has terminal heart issues and has tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). In this situation, the best way we can make him comfortable is to look for a "fospice” or foster-hospice home where he can enjoy the time he has left. In foster hospice situations, we assume all medical costs. We understand this is a big favor, but Blue Lagoon is one of the sweetest cats we know. He loves everyone he meets and will greet you at the door! He seems to get along fine with other cats. He enjoys being petted and snuggling. You can read more about FIV here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs. Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org if you would be in a position to care for Blue and make him as comfortable as possible. We appreciate it!

Prescott is shy boy who warms up with patience. He likes to be petted and will nuzzle in for more. Prescott is good with other cats and should go home with a confident one to help him adjust sooner to the new home. He would benefit going to a quiet home with adults. Please call to find out more
3 year 1 month old male domestic longhair / mix
Muncie came to our shelter after a tremendously stressful and chaotic life previously. He was in a situation where he was living with almost 50 other cats in a very small space, so as you can imagine, Muncie is a very shy boy who warms up with patience. Once he feels as though he can trust you, he enjoys being petted and will nuzzle in for more. Muncie finds the most comfort in being around other cats, so we'd like to send him to a home alongside another confident cat to help him adjust sooner to his new home. He would benefit from being in a quiet home with adults. Please call to find out more about our special boy!
7 year 1 month old male domestic shorthair / mix
Brady is larger than life! Unfortunately, Brady found himself in a similar situation to our friend Blue Lagoon and is in need of special care. Brady has terminal heart issues that cannot be cured. In this situation, the best way we can make him comfortable is to look for a "fospice” or foster-hospice home where he can enjoy the time he has left. In foster hospice situations, we assume all medical costs. We understand this is a big favor, but Brady deserves a chance to live his life to the best of his ability. He enjoys being petted and will purr. Brady likes his people and is a total lap cat! He has been in a home with a dog who is calm around cats and did well, though he's not a fan of other cats and would do best in a home without children. He is still adjusting to shelter life and can be shy in his new surroundings. Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org if you would be in a position to care for Brady and make him as comfortable as possible. We appreciate it!
2 year 1 month old female domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Meet Gilly! She's still getting used to the shelter and learning people are okay to be trusted. One of her absolute favorite things to do is to play - especially if it involves hunting down an unsuspecting wand toy! Gilly has discovered the joy of being pet and will adventure right into to your lap. She is a sweetheart with people she is comfortable with, which are those who understand to respect her boundaries and not push her out of her comfort zone. If she feels pushed or uncomfortable, she tends to let out a hiss and raise her paw up, trying to communicate this to you. Gilly would really love to be the queen of her castle in an adult home without other animals. Gilly is in a foster home, please email kcaron@baypathhumane.org
2 year 2 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Anywhere he goes, Hank's tiger stripes turn heads - match that with a friendly and affectionate personality and you might have met your perfect companion! Hank is not easy to get photos of because he wants to be all over you. He is quite the head butter and enjoys rubbing up against you. Hank is a wobbly boy and does stumble; we are not sure what has happened to him in the past but it has not slowed him down or bother him. He is a great lap cat and a great nap cat! He likes to be near his human. However, at first he is very shy, scared, skittish. He will hide from any unfamiliar or loud noises. You are able to approach and pick him up and he will snuggle into your arms until he feels safe and will start purring. Oh and he does drool a bit. Hank has tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but it doesn't get him down, and it shouldn't for you either! You can read more about it here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs. If you would like to meet Hank please email kcaron@baypathhumane.org

You can read more about it here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs. Biscuit is currently hanging out in a foster home, waiting for his forever.

4 year 4 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Mountain Dew is a cheeky little fellow found stranded out in the cold. He's been through a lot and is still learning that it's okay for him to trust people! For the people he sees on a consistent basis and has safe experiences with, he does well. He enjoys a slow chin scratch and if you exercise patience, you'll even have him eating out of your hand! Just recently, he's begun to surprise volunteers by climbing right into their lap to enjoy some pets. He's finally coming to realize the joy of receiving affection! He also has a playful side, which reveals itself when the wand toys come out. Mountain Dew is a little too stressed to enjoy the presence of other cats right now so he'd really do best as the only pet in the home. Mountain Dew is hanging out in a foster home right now, so if you think you could be the right match to give this boy the comfortable life he deserves please email kcaron@baypathhumane.org to find out more!
1 year 6 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Rio is quite affectionate and loves to be the center of attention. His foster says this sweet boy enjoys pets and lounging in your lap, so he's ready to find you! Despite his lovable demeanor, he also has a fresh side - when overstimulated from touch or excitement, he'll start with love nipping and playful paws. This frisky kitty needs lots of playtime but also a good amount of down time. He absolutely loves chasing and batting around wand toys. He will definitely need an understanding and cat-savvy family, a family who will help stimulate him in positive ways. He would thrive in an adult home either alone or possibly with another confident cat that can handle his playful antics! ** Rio is hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please email kcaron@baypathhumane.org to find out more or set up a meet with him!
1 year 8 month old female domestic shorthair / mix
Roxette has become the belle of the ball! Roxette has done well with confident playful cats but unfortunately has not like shy female cats. If you pet her under the chin, she'll love you forever, and will tell you so with her loud purr. She will need a home with adults that are willing to give her the time she needs to feel comfortable and adjust, so she can turn on her charm and win you over. Although she is shy at first she quickly warms up when she knows you or has adjusted to the home. Catnip and treats will surely help!
Helpful hint: Please bring copies of your vet records if you're considering adopting. This will help speed up your adoption process.
Note: Animals in foster are living in temporary foster homes and are available for adoption. Please contact us at adopt@baypathhumane.org or 508-435-6938 to learn more about a dog or cat who's in foster. Thanks!
