Fetured Cats and Kittens for the week of January 11 - 18, 2017.  We will try to feature new furbabies every week for your adopting pleasure! 


Meet Sable


Senior Female DSH Cholocate Burmese


Sable is a beautiful chocolate Burmese/DSH mix. The light undercoat is apparent in her pictures. She was abandoned at the AARF house, but is a happy and friendly girl with lots of love. She is very outgoing and talkative. She's looking for a home with people who will adore her.

We're not sure of her age, but the vet thinks she is probably 10. She is full of energy and full of life. Sable is hyperthyroid and needs thyroid medication for the rest of her life in order to maintain her weight. Sable is spayed, current on shots and FIV/FELV negative. Contact Sable's Foster at or 336-926-9269. Or contact AARF directly at 336-768-7387.

We ARE going to find this precious Lady a home of her very own.  If you know of someone that is looking for the cat that will be forever in their debt for rescuing her, this baby is for you!  Email Rebecca or email ME ( and we can get you together with Sable and make both your lives so much happier!
