Story
Meet Nancy, a captivating 5-year-old British Shorthair with a striking black and brown coat that exudes elegance. This feline beauty is as enigmatic as she is charming, possessing a unique personality that requires a special touch. Nancy's past experiences have made her a bit avoidant with new people, but for the patient and understanding cat lover, she unveils a world of warmth and affection. Once trust is established, Nancy transforms into a delightful companion, expressing her fondness by gently rubbing against your legs. One of Nancy's most endearing qualities is her deep love for food. This charming cat is highly food-motivated, making mealtime an excellent opportunity to bond with her. Her culinary enthusiasm provides a gateway to her heart, and she'll undoubtedly appreciate a caring owner who understands the way to it. Nancy is on the lookout for an experienced cat owner, someone who comprehends the nuances of dealing with shy cats. Patience, kindness, and a gentle approach are key to unlocking the true potential of this lovely British Shorthair. If you're up for the challenge and ready to embark on a journey of building trust and companionship, Nancy could be the perfect addition to your feline-loving family.

Story
Fay is a 5 yr old white/silver British short hair female. She is quiet and sweet once she gets to know you. She knows what she wants and can hiss at you if she doesn't know you well or trust you yet. But once she knows you, she becomes more affectionate, and will come sit near you on the couch. She was originally acquired through a CFA registered breeder and given to us when her original owner had to relocate to a foreign country. We are looking for a new owner who can be patient with her and builds up trust with her at her own pace.

Story
Hi, I'm Milo! I am approximately 2-3 years old and was rescued off my current owner's front porch. I am looking for a new home because my fur sister and I haven't been able to get along, but I am very sweet and loving to my humans. Bonus: I am leash trained and know how to sit on command! My humans will also give you my litterbox, food, and bed. I love toys, lap naps, being brushed, catnip, affection, and most importantly, food - I'll eat anything I can get my paws on and smells good! However, I do not like other cats - I need to be king of my castle! I am very adventurous, clever, and outgoing. I also love to vocally express my opinion, whether I'm bored, need attention, or think dinner is late. I would prefer the company of my human(s) for most of the day, but I'm learning to keep myself entertained with toys. I love to accompany you throughout your day and explore your home. I am marked as special needs because I am FIV+ but I have not had any related symptoms or health problems.
