Story
Mowgli has been waiting for a new home over a year now. He has a very unique personality! Mowgli is a very special and stunning boy! He was found in the San Bernardino Mountains 5 years ago when he showed up at someone's house skinny and wandering for weeks and then was adopted by a wonderful lady. Unfortunately, she cannot physically care for him anymore and he is looking for a new forever home. Mowgli is around 6 years old, 13 lbs., neutered, up to date on shots and micro chipped. We believe he is a British Shorthair/American Shorthair breed. He would do best as an only cat and only animal in the house. Because of his unique characteristics, he would also need a home with no kids. Mowgli is very sweet, playful, vocal, loves to be brushed and is an affectionate cat, but has a dominant side when he wants something or is done with attention. He tends to give love bites and scratches when he’s had enough. He feels bad afterward and is always trying to improve. He seems to be happiest when he is able to go outside in the yard. So being an inside/outside cat would make him happy as long as he is safe. He also has gone on walks on a leash. He is territorial and has gotten is some cat fights and is very strong. But please don’t let this scare you away. He wants to please, but in his way. Mowgli really is an amazing cat! Mowgli needs someone who understands cats, is experienced and patient. If this is you, please fill out our MHS Feline Adoption Application on our website.

He's smart, too - always finding new ways to play and explore. And when it's time to relax, there's nothing he loves more than a good cuddle. But don't be fooled by his laid-back attitude, BOBA FETT is also brave and loyal. He has a zest for life that is truly infectious. And while he's full of energy, he also knows when it's time to kick back and just enjoy the moment. He is a cat who knows his own mind and likes to be the king of his castle. With BOBA FETT, every day is a new adventure. So why not make him a part of your family? Adopt BOBA FETT and let his love and loyalty light up your life.

Understand that this is an adoption of a beautiful little soul that deserves the absolute best life. MARISOL VERA and 10 other cats were saved from the shelter. Most of them were black cats. Its so unfortunate the bad stigma that these cats get. Lucky for them, (just like our logo shows) we LOOOVE black cats! According to the rescue mama that has been saving cats for over 20 years, black cats are the best cats EVER! And MARISOL VERA is the example! She was very unhappy when we got her. She is still not fond of being picked up. She loves to play by herself too. She loves to eat her can food! MARISOL VERA sweet and loving. She will need a home with a family that loves her just the way she is...playful, sassy and loves you on her own time. She will probably do best as on only cat or a boy cat. She is very fond of boy cats. MARISOL VERA is a DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / BOMBAY MIX. He is about 1 year old and is good with cats. In his foster home, she was around other kittens and older cats. She has never been around dogs that we are aware of or children. MARISOL VERA is currently at a foster home in Hemet, California. ADOPTION PROCESS: 1. Go to Workinwhiskers.com (Click on ADOPT) 2.
