These beautiful cats will be with the rescue shortly. If you are interested we can arrange an early meet and greet for you. They are with a sister sanctuary that we are helping with the adoptions where the owner passed away. She was an avid TNR advocate and rescued all adoptable cats and friendly cats ( likely dumped and most as kittens). We want to make all of these precious cats find the forever homes they so deserve. In honor of her work and effort she dedicated her time to. Complete our pre-adoption application on our website located under the resources tab. Just fill in the cats.

Hello friends and followers! 2022 was an amazing year for Kattered Tails! We are a small group the way we like and have some truly awesome fosters, fabulous volunteers, work with terrific partners Lisa Thayer and Doug Thayer at Gordy’s Goodies Pet Food & Supplies as well Two Petco locations (Chandler Blvd in Chandler and Guadalupe Rd in Tempe) and our fantastic Vets and their staff at Pet Doctor of Chandler, All have helped Kattered Tails adopt out over 150 cats and kittens.

In 2023 we are starting to introduce our new cats to the rescue in posts as they come to us and also we will post new cats coming soon. We will also do our best to post a “Kitty of the week”.

Another change that is big in 2023… We will be concentrating our efforts on adult cats over the age of one. We have decided and have seen that there is a need to help save the lives of these cats. Many of these cats often need medical care, are sick and often on euthanasia lists. This will be our new mission.

Let’s make 2023 an incredible year of all cats!πŸ˜ΈπŸ’•πŸ˜»πŸ’˜









Stop by Tempe Petco tomorrow Saturday the 17th for our first adoption event at our Petco partner. Tempe Petco is located at the South West corner of Guadalupe and McClintocks Rds.

Sadly Kattered Tails is having to go on an intake freeze. All of our foster homes are filled to capacity. This kitten season has been a very difficult one. There has been many, many more kittens and fewer people coming forward to foster and volunteer this year as well. Also, due to the economy adoptions are slower then usual. Some of the kittens are staying in their foster homes longer then we would like them to. If you might be interested in fostering or volunteering with Kattered Tails please complete the applications on our website. When we open back again for intake we will post again.



Meet another Adopt as Shelter Cat looking for a home this month. Meet Annie one of our mamma cats who had raised all of her kittens and now it is her turn to live it up in a home where she is the one and only love of someone’s life. Annie is such a sweet girl, she is kind and gentle. Loves to be petted and scratched and will come to you when you call her. All she wants is to be loved and know what it means to be loved. She was discarded in the saddest way possible, in the dirtiest area one could imagine to give birth to her babies and try to raise her little ones. Thankfully for one of our amazing fosters and volunteers they found her before she gave birth and she was able to have her babies in a safe clean environment where she was loved, probably for the first time in her life. Call to meet this meek little lady and make her your Angel…..

Annie is the 3rd showcase of the Adopt a Shelter Cat Month long adoption wishes we have going for some of our adults. We are going to keep listing them until we find all of them a home!


Meet another amazing cat! Kalei, is one of our mamma’s who is done having kittens from now on. She is now ready for some summer fun days. She is very friendly, loves to be petted and rubbed all over. Very talkative and let’s you know when it’s time to fill her bowl. Kalei was a dumpster diver before so it took us a long time to find food she would actually eat, well she like freeze dried raw cat food. She likes it dry: no wetting down this girls food,😹

Well it’s better than junk food πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ˜œ

If you are interested please message or visit our website to complete the pre-adoption.


June is adopt a shelter cat month. To celebrate we will be spotlighting a cat who has been waiting for a long time for their forever home.

Help us find these GREAT & AMAZING cats the homes they so deserve.

The first kitty is Virgil! This is a great guy. He lives with Monica and Martin. They can tell you that Virg (as Monica calls him) is one of the friendliest cats in the house. He watches TV with you, always wants to be on your lap or near you. He loves you attention and affection. He was abandoned by he family when they moved and simply threw him and his house mates outside to fend for themselves. Virgil has terrible ear mite infection in both ears that required surgery which the rescue took car of. He was left with the cutest little crinkle ears. We think this makes him that much more adorable. Unfortunately Virgil being the mild mannered guy he is was attacked outside and bit very bad and was given FIV. He is very healthy and can live happily and peacefully among other cats, he is not a fighter and has lived among and in the Colello’s home for over a year with no problems at all. FIV is spread by extremely bloody bites and Virgil is just not a fighter he is a lover.

Please open your heart to this guy he is amazing!

If interested please call the rescue at 480-382-5289 or complete a pre-adoption application on the website, listed under the resources tab.

Kattered Tails new habitat at Gordy’s Goodies is now complete and we could not be happier. For the past few years we have been working with Lisa and Doug Thayer the owners of Gordy’s Goodies Pet Food & Supplies and I can say they are true animal people. Their care, love and belief in animal care, health and rescue goes above and beyond what I ever could have imagined. Lisa is one of the most amazing people I have ever met and I am proud now call her my friend! She has truly added onto my knowledge of animal care, health and nutrition. I am pleased to announce this close partnership with Gordy’s Goodies and the Thayer’s and we look forward to many years of continued success.

We plan to paint the habitat the colors of Kattered Tails and Gordy’s Goodies to show our partnership as we begin our adventure into the future.

We would like to celebrate the opening of Kattered Tails J & J’s Bed and Breakfast.

The B & B has been named after two special foster cats to the owner of the rescue, Jackie-O and Jarvis. Jackie-O and Jarvis were amazing cats who gave tons of love but never made it to their forever homes. Both were with their for a few years for one reason or another. Jacki-O was in poor health and Jarvis was terrified from abuse in his past and learned to trust again. Both passed away and left small holes in their foster mom’s heart and this is how she honors them. The B and B is located at the owners home where the large patio has been refinished enclosed into a cat dream area full of cat trees to look like a forest and smaller climbing cat lounger and scratchers that look like fun flowers and mushroom houses. There are hammock cat beds and plush beds all around for all of our friends to make themselves comfortable. Attached to this living area is a tunnel to an outdoor cattery where many cats like to sleep the day away in the sun or watch the birds and critters, If they prefer the also have access to the the house through the kitty armoire that hold the litter boxes. This way they can be with their humans on the couch or playing with puppies at night.

Sadly at the current time Kattered Tails is on a intake freeze. We are now full with kittens again and our new fosters are absolutely amazing and we have been able to save more kittens then we thought. We are still looking for a few new foster who meet the rescues criteria and want to belong to a family. We have made changes that have all worked for the better and can not wait for the future.

October 15, 2021

We have so many kittens of all ages looking to find a forever home. We are working very hard and feeling defeated at times. We put a lot of effort into preparing for adoption events only to find out The Humane Society and County Shelter is giving kittens away that day. While our kittens are very healthy and friendly it is difficult to compete with a subsidized Humane society and County Shelter.

Who can compete with free. Our fosters, volunteers and members needed a break to take a breath and reload. They need to know that what we do matters. Our babies will have their day and it is coming soon….

Don’t forget our “All Treats, No Trick” Halloween adoption event. It is that Saturday the 23rd.

So today I meet the nicest couple. They rescued this beautiful girl I have fondly named “Charmin”. I tell everyone “Don’t squeeze the Charmin”. LOL! She is extremely friendly and craves the attention of humans. However, she is NOT found of dogs. She is kind of friendly with other cats but we are working on that. There is a lot of hissing going on. She has the most beautiful white long coat and is super soft, she likes being brushed and will required brushing. She gets hair mates easily. If you want a super friendly girl look no further.

April 15, 2021

Meet Angelo he is one handsome guy. He came to us from Yuma so that he could find his forever home her in Chandler. He is a very affectionate with people and is said to even be a lap cat. He just come to us so we don’t know much about his favorite toys but the way this guy acts I am sure that he would like the feather wand toy. If you are looking for a super friendly guy who loves a lap or two here I am.

April 01, 2021

Let’s give a very BIG welcome to Peppermint Patty & Carmella into Kattered Tails. They come to us from Yuma looking to find a fresh start Chandler. They are sister and we are hoping to adopt them together. They are very bonded pair and have been together in foster care since birth. The foster home they were in could no longer keep them because of issues with the dog. Sometimes it takes time to find a home for a bonded pair but I am sure somewhere there is double the love in someones heart for some beautiful ladies.

So come on Chandler let’s find these beautiful ladies a home!

March 29, 2021

Congrats to all the new adoptive pet owners who showed up at Gordy’s Goodies this past Saturday. Kattered Tails had a record breaking 12 adoptions in one day, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

We can not forget Lisa Thayer owner of Gordy’s Goodies who helped with our adoption paperwork and Dima who helped with our checkout process. We were running thin and your help meant so much. Thank You. πŸ™‚

Now that kitten season is upon us it is very important to remind the community that just because you see kittens and mom is not there don NOT mean she has abandoned them! The kittens best chance at survival (LIFE) is to be with their mom. Especially tiny days old kittens. These kittens need their moms, not us. Please leave them alone. The most likely scenario is mom is out hunting or eating at a feeding station. She needs to eat to produce milk for her kittens. Please DO NOT KIT-NAP kittens.

January, 29, 2021

With kitten season right around the corner it is imperative that we start to fund raise so that we help as many kittens and as many mamma cats with kittens as we can. Community support is integral for us to continue to support the community. Without community support we will be forced to implement the full surrender fees when taking in cats and kittens. Caring for these little families is not free. Support is needed. If you can donate please do so and help spread the word so we can continue our good work of saving lives.

Meet this AWESOME boy, Hobbs! He is a Flame Point Siamese and is so handsome. The Vet and the rescue feel that he was abused and he had and injury to his tail and most of it is missing. For this reason he does lot like his tail touched. Poor guy. He can be scared at first but learns to love real fast, once he knows you and knows you love him. He then needs lots of love and attention from you. Things need to be done on his time schedule not yours. Patience is a virtue my friends he then become a cuddle boy. He sleeps with his foster parents now and loves to play. Just look at that face.

November 29, 2020

Meet the Kitty of The Week: The Beautiful Sammie!

Sammie is a beautiful orange and white tabby girl with the little sweet face. She had a rough start in life. Sammie and her sister Annie lost their mom and came to us very frightened. Their foster parents Amber & Clifford worked very hard with them to get them used to being around people and being touched and loved. Sammie went backwards after her sister found her forever home. Sammie needs someone who is willing to put in some extra time and love so that Sammie gets to know what it means to be loved. Right now she is great with other cats and dogs and is fine living in a house with people but sometimes she has difficulty allowing humans to show her affection. She can be hard to pick up but there are cats that just don’t like to be held. We feel that when Sammie finds her forever home and that special someone who is willing to give all they have she will show her heart and give all that she has has to give.

Meet our Handsome Hobbes! Hobbes is a very special boy, a very sweet boy and a lover once he gets to know you and learns to trust you. We and the vet office believe that he may have been abused and there was an accident that amputated his tail as you can see. You need to approach him with your palm up not down and under his chin not on his head. He does not like his tail touched. He does like to play with his toy mouse and loves the wand toys. He likes other kittens and cats. He will require a quiet home to live in (no small children). We do prefer experienced cat people, but not required. He needs lots of love and attention. It will take time with him so things will need to be on his time schedule not a humans. Patience is a virtue. Give him all of your love and he will repay you tenfold.

October 18, 2020

Meet our Beautiful and Sassy Girl Angel!She is such a great girl who has come such a long way. She came from a hoarding situation and she was very scared and very timid. She hid for about a week and then become very interested in all the comings and goings of the house. She loves to be around other cats/kittens. She lost all of her kittens who passed away sadly. Once she learns to trust you she will rubs all over your legs, will want to be petted and loved on. But however she does not liked to be picked up. Her do feel however with time and patience she will learn what it means to be loved more. She leans trust slowly, and we think she was ignored because she lived with far to many cats. We will not adopt into a home with children or dogs she will not do well, loud noise are not good for her at all. She does like other cats but slow introductions are required.

I you are interested in Angel please fill out the adoption application listed under forms on the website.

Cassie is a super sweet girl and is just about the most beautiful Tortie girl ever! She has no Tortie-Tude here, except with other cats, so Cassie MUST be the only kitty in your life. She prefers all the love for herself. She is great with kids and loves attention. Her favorite place is sitting on a couch or chair with anyone that will sit with her. Not destructive as long as she has a good scratch post with rope. She’s fixed but still has her claws. Always been an only pet. Well behaved, never gets into things or on counters ? not a climber. Litter trained. Cassie will need a lower entry littler box, she kind of has the saggy belly going on, but don’t we all! Loves people, children are the best!Cassie needs to be the only cat that is the way she has always lived. In her foster homes she did not do well with other cats. She has never lived dogs before but in two foster homes she seems to just give a quick hiss and tell them to stay away.

September 28, 2020

The dignified Bagheera here. He is sitting tall and proud like the regal boy he is. He has had a bit rough the month or more. His owners father past away unexpectedly and he was unable to take his pets with him to his new home with him. So Baheera has lost his boy and his two dog friends in a month. He was very said when he realized he his boy was leaving him and he was left in a new home by himself with no one he knew. On top of that he got neutered, O’ man, right! However, with the love of his foster mom he is coming around and giving back all the love he is getting. His mom says he has come around nicely and is such a lover and loves to be petted. Bagheera is not fond of other cats. He did live with two dogs and he gets along great with the new puppers in his life. His foster mom adds the Bagheera loves full time attention and never tires of it, and he is such a lover! He is also a talker and will carry on a conversation with you when you talk with him.

September 13, 2020

Angel is very shy but slowly learning what it means to be loved. These kitties will be available at our next adoption event at Gordy’s Goodies on September 12, 2020 (except Angel).

On Saturday 08/08/2020 we held our first adoption event at Petco in Happy Valley. We had an exciting day. It was our first event since the end of March and we were happy to get out and about in the public again. Things were different this time! Masks were on, we observed the 6′ rule and only allowed one person at a time to come and visit with the kittens. All in all a good day. Everyone understood the rules and were happy to wait and were excited to see kittens back in the store. We can’t wait to get more events scheduled and more kittens adopted. Thank You everyone for your continued support in these difficult times. Masks on help prevent the spread so we can get back in the stores and help save more lives.

Big Congratulations to The Krantz Family and Zuko the kitten who found love at Petco during these crazy COVID times. May all of your get tons of kitten kisses and love for a lifetime. Thank You from all of us at Kattered Tails!

“HELP” Harper Find a Home!

This great girl needs to find a home that is all hers. Harper is such a great kitty! She is sweet and loving with all her little quirks. I can call her from across the house can she will come running to me. She will sit with me on the couch and watch TV or take a nap. She loves to play. The laser pointer is one of her favorite things to chase; although you can sometimes see some frustration when she can’t catch it. She came to us a 7 month old pregnant kitten who now needs her time to be the one and only in someone’s eyes. She has some allergies to litter dust and sounds stuffy sometimes (we use a special mixture our vet makes for us for her nose). We have tried a few litter with her but with other cats in the house separating Harper from everyone she just does not like. She gets along fine with everyone in my house including some older kittens. She a bit uncoordinated for a cat, a bit quirky for a cat and a little chunky around the middle but that just a bit more to love.

New Kitty of The Week!

The Beautiful Paloma! She is still looking for LOVE and her FURREVER home. She is a super sweet girl. She likes to get loved on by her humans and will come and lay in bed with you. She never had the chance to be a kitten so we feel it is her turn to get all the love there is in the world and become someones one and only. She have fond recently that she is the dominate female of the house so she would be the one who gets all of your attention. Some dogs are OK with her and some cats are OK with her. If you are looking for someone to be your one and only then look no more Paloma is right here.

June 03, 2020

Kitty of the Week is back in session!
We have a special Boy this week.
Meet Odin here! He is one handsome boy who happens to be a Black Tabby with the most dreamy eyes one cat could have. It’s like he is looking at you dreaming of sitting on the couch and getting all the love you have to give for a boy like him.
Odin was rescued by one of Kattered Tails special fosters when she saw him walking around sad and sick with a kitten collar stuck around his neck and infected and the worst ear infections you could have ever seen. As one could imagine he did want much to do with a human. She doctored him as best she could until he was taken in to be neutered. While under anesthesia we had the Vet clean his neck and take care of his terribly infected ears. After he was feeling better Odin turned into the most loving boy you have ever seen. He loves his foster mom and he lets her know it. scratches on the ears are great now and getting all the love he can get is wonderful for him now. Unfortunately poor Odin must have been beaten up by another cat pretty bad and became infected FIV. This is not a death sentence! Cats with FIV live long healthy lives and can now live with other cats research shows in peaceful households. There are also ways to protect other cats through vaccinations as well. So PLEASE don’t let a positive result of FIV scare you away from this GREAT CAT!
Just look at that great smile!

Calling all cat lovers; foster homes needed!

January 11, 2020

We welcome two great brothers in the rescue Peter & Roarie. Peter is a handsome Lilac Point Siamese and Roarie is a cute Flame Point Siamese. These two lost their owner after she passed away and a very nice neighbor took them in short term and they were able to come to Kattered Tails through a sister rescue.

Peter and Roarie are young at only just over 6.5 years old, big boys they are. Not small kitties by any means. Both are super loving cats, love attention, sleep in bed with you and with you on the cough while you watch some TV. Peter is the larger and Roarie the talker and leader of the two. They have been together all along and will need to stay together through the adoption process. We say twice the love!

They will be ready shortly for adoption. On their medical clearance exam for adoption on January 10th we found they each need a tooth pulled and this needs taken care of first. We only adopt out healthy cats who are ready for adoption. Check back shortly for these great boys.

January 11, 2020

Congratulations to some one AWESOME cat Sunny, who became a mom extremely young and now today was her day. She was adopted by the best couple a kitty could ask for. She will be the Princess of her new home.

Kattered Tails is a recently formed rescued in Chandler, in the wonderful state of Arizona in The Valley of the Sun. We are an enthusiastic group of rescuers who have over 20+ years of experience in both cat and dog rescue. We are committed to helping even the most tattered cats and kittens gain full health and vigor so they are able to be adopted into a home and family that is well suited to their needs not the needs of the humans. Helping cats and kittens find their FURREVER homes is a priority for us.

We also hold a firm belief in the need for spaying and neutering in the communities in which we rescue. All cats and kittens rescued and adopted through Kattered Tails will be spayed and neutered prior to adoption, no exceptions. We also believe that educating the public is key to controlling overpopulation and helping to bring an end to needless euthanasia.

We have received out EIN# from the IRS and our paperwork has been submitted to The Arizona Corporate Commission to become an incorporated non-profit in the state of Arizona.

Our accountant has also started all paperwork to get our approval from the federal government to receive our approval as a 501 (c)(3). We will keep you updated under this section of our website.

Thank You for supporting Kattered Tails.
