Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some cute kitties? There are dozens of deserving cats up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Memphis.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of cats currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

She's a grumpy ol' senior kitty at the moment, but we do not blame her! She is used to having her own space in a nice quiet home. We hope that someone will take Zeta home so she can get back to her normal life. We know that she must be very confused!

Delilah has always been extra special, because her back legs don't exactly work like everyone else's. She doesn't let that slow her down though! You should see her run and play and climb a cat tree!

Did I mention how silky my fur is? You can even brush it if you want to. I have recently been tested as FIV positiv but that doesn't mean I am contagious to other kitties since I have been neutered!

I am a quiet, shy tabby. I have been at Mewtopia since 2012. I was adopted last year for a brief period, but I didn't adjust very well in my new home. I need a very understanding adopter. Someone who won't be upset if I hide for a while or if it takes a while to earn my trust. Could you be that special person?

I'm Nyla, and I am a very fiesty girl. I'm young with lots of energy, and I tend to nip a little.
