Story
We adopted this sweet boy and his brother Labor Day weekend from our local rescue league. Him and his brother need to remain together and be adopted by the same household as they have been together since birth and they come from the same litter. He’s a sweet guy who loovesss lots of attention and snuggles. He’s quite the honory one of the two. He loves to be held and will come to you often when he wants attention. He’s good with children as young as toddler and dogs. Unfortunately we just don’t have the time and attention him and his brother deserve so this is the reason we are putting them back up for adoption

Story
Lucy, fondly called Lucypurr, is an adult tortoiseshell cat. She is very affectionate but loves to find places to nap and prefers to make bread on your lap and curl up. Tim, is an adult black cat with some patches of white on his face and chest. He takes a while to warm up, he likes to find some where quiet and dark until he builds up his courage to adventure out. Once he does he is the most loving snuggler. I have fallen on some hard time and no longer work from home. They have not adjusted well to this. I am also unfortunately unable to continue caring for them due to the job loss and now working in a significantly lower paying job. I love them so much and want to make sure that they are in a home that is best for them.
