Cat of the Month
I'm Samira, and I arrived at Homeward Bound over five months ago, after my elderly human passed away. I'm 13, and we had been together for a while, so you can imagine it was tough. Despite that, I've kept my pride and beauty top priority, as I'm fabulous inside and out. I've got a stunning, well-kept coat, big expressive eyes and a cute little pout. My demeanor is that of calm, easygoing, and gentle. I accept lots of pets, head scratches and affection, making me an incredible companion for anyone. Perhaps that person is you?
They’re cute, cuddly and desperately in need of your help. Or are they?
If you happen to find a litter of small kittens outdoors, it’s natural to want to scoop them up and take them to a shelter. However, it is important to know that this is almost never in a kitten’s best interest.

Homeward Bound Cats is a modern, free-roaming adoption center that minimizes the stress experienced by homeless cats and makes it easier for them to find loving families.
When owners are no longer able to care for their pets, we offer an alternative to taking them to a shelter or leaving them on the street.
Adoption fees don’t begin to pay our costs for daily care and numerous veterinary services.
We are a no-kill, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. All cats deserve a second chance, yet many have medical needs or face other challenges. Some are introverted and need time to show their true colors. Others are social and playful but prefer to be an only pet. Some just want a place to call their own, even if it means hiding under the bed. The reality is that cats are individuals and some may take longer than others to find the right family, but we never abandon them. Instead, we provide love and quality care for as long as it takes, even if that means the rest of their life.
