PORTHOS

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Porthos is a beautiful cat with long gray fur, who loves to welcome visitors at the top of the stairs of the shelter or directly on the threshold – making everyone step over him. Unfortunately he does not like being brushed, so at times his hair knots tightly into dreadlocks making him the first Rasta cat of Torre Argentina!

PAOLETTO

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Paoletto is a free spirit! Because he is lame, we thought we should protect him by keeping him in the nursery. But he managed to escape and now runs happily in the ruins of the Sacred Area, climbing everywhere and sleeping on the scaffolding! He worries us, but we see that he is happy to return to the shelter for food and petting, then a quick nap and he is off to the next adventure

GENZIANA

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Genziana is a beauty:  beautiful with a wicked character! She could be a cat-model. They say she has the same temperament as Naomi Campbell … very hot-tempered!

BRUTUS

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Brutus is deaf, blind, FIV positive and has kidney failure … a real wreck when it comes to his health! But he is happy all the same, with his friends Grumpy and Calibano, and happy to accept cuddling and petting… and distance sponsorships of course!

TICHIRO

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

We were sure that this beautiful Siamese, found at a subway stop on a very rare snowy day in Rome, would immediately find a home. But it did not happen and Tichiro has become our creaky old man, for now he has problems with his sight and he moves stiffly on his legs. But he is still as beautiful a cat as ever!

RAFFAELLA

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Raffaella is a very shy cat. She is more than 15 years old and unfortunately her health is failing. But this does not prevent her from enjoying the friendship of two big blind cats, Caliban and Brutus, who welcome her into their basket, keeping her in the middle and making her feel safe.

QUINOA

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Quinoa is a handsome elderly and visually impaired cat who is perpetually hungry. Maybe he remembers his life when he was found, skeletal and rummaging at the bottom of a dumpster looking for food? Torre Argentina offered him a home and it will be difficult for him to find another … especially if he keeps peeing in his friends’ kennels!

VESTA

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

Found in 2008 inside the Temple of Vesta, this beautiful black cat has independent and proud character. A degenerate conjunctivitis has clouded his right eye, making it fascinating and unmistakable

OBELIX

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

A middle-aged cat, mistreated for his first part of life, has struggled to recover his health in Torre Argentina. After a year at the shelter we can say that he succeeded! A good giant, like the comic Obelix, who loves humans a lot.

NARCISO

Posted Posted in Cat Stories

When he has been found in 2010, Narciso had a herpes and because of it he l lost the sight in one eye. However he was a beautiful cat and we hoped to find him a house, but Narciso has preferred the freedom of the Area Sacra and by now we see him only at a safe (for him) distance. The right cat for people who love liberty very very very much!
