PIOPPO

Pioppo has only three legs, but he does not know it!
So he runs, he jumps and climbs walls as if he had five legs. And when he is tired of so much trouble, he offers belly, throat and all of himself to caresses.

ZENONE

Zenone is a good and sweet cat with a serious vice: he hates dogs! He hates dogs so much that in his old colony he did not hesitate to attack every dog he saw, no matter the size or disposition. Unfortunately he found the dog that removed this crazed cat from his neck with a bite that broke his leg so badly that it had to be amputated. Now Zenone is a tripod of Torre Argentina!

TRILLY

As beautiful as she is unpredictable, Trilly has had many offers to adopt her retracted because of her overly nervous character. Here at Torre Argentina she prefers the male volunteers to the ladies. Who will convince her not to discriminate?

TAREK

As the large scar on his back shows, Tarek is a not so young, handsome black cat that has had a hard life. But he is doing very well here at the shelter. He is such a charmer that during the times he decides to disappear into the Sacred Area ruins, all the volunteers immediately miss him and worry!

PORTHOS

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

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

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

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

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!

OBELIX

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.
