If you would like to make a contribution toward our care we would very much appreciate your help. The average cost per month for food, litter and medical care is $70 per cat. Just $25 per month to sponsor a special kitty would make a significant impact.
When Broderick first arrived he was terrified. He had been found along a highway where it appeared he had been dumped. His front legs are deformed limiting his ability to escape harms way. He has a safe haven with Heartland Cats and is beginning to gain more and more confidence. Since he is so shy and has had a very difficult time adjusting to a new environment, he will remain a guest of Heartland Cats. He needs stability and constant reassurance that all is going to be well and no harm will come to him.
Chelsea was a feral kitty who gave birth to kittens before she herself was a year old. We Placed her kittens but Chelsea is very shy and it has taken her 4 years to acclimate to her home here. While she now accepts attention from her caretakers, Chelsea still runs from visitors. She accepts other incoming cats and has befriended Baxter. Chelsea just seems to know when Baxter needs a quiet friend and can often be found near or by him on his more difficult days. Offering her friendship is what Chelsea does best.
Ariel’s owners recently moved into an assisted living facility. Due to age and declining health, they are no longer able to care for her. Ariel has health issues of her own requiring a special diet and medications. Since Ariel's health issues often requite immediate medical attention, she will live out her life in our facility.
Minnie, and her brother Duke below, were feral and have yet to accept people. They have no difficulties getting along with other kitties, but are not at all open to being touched. Minnie loves treats but not enough to get within arms length. Duke and Minnie have not been outside since they were 6 months old. They could be released into a controlled environment where they have appropriate shelter and food. They are very attached to each other and need to remain together. They will continue to live at Heartland Cats until we can find a perfect new home for them.
Duke will take a treat from your hand but only in shear desperation. They could be released into a controlled environment where they have appropriate shelter and food.

Tiger, convinced he is one of the most handsome dudes, constantly grooms to insure a hair is not out of place. Having long hair requires a lot of groom time and that can be exhausting. Exhaustion requires nap time and one can only nap on a full belly. Earn his trust and he will be your most loyal companion. This 5-year-old has a strong personality and is best suited for adults and older children.
Toby, a Siamese mix, has all the attitude that goes with those crossed eyes. There is a very gentle side to Toby but he tends to play rough. Therefore, he is not a candidate for small children. He loves to drink from the faucet and if he finds water in the sink there will be little kitty footprints leading to his napping place of choice. Toby is territorial and needs to be an only cat.
