Story
Introducing Tai Shan, the adorably rotund senior cow cat with a heart of gold! Tai Shan may not be the most energetic feline in the shelter, but he’s certainly earned the title of “Cuddle King” among his fellow residents. You see, he’s not just a favorite among humans; every kitty in the shelter adores him. It’s as if Tai Shan exudes an irresistible charm that transcends species boundaries! This somewhat shy, low-energy, laid-back feline is all about the fine art of lounging. If there’s one thing Tai Shan truly excels at, it’s perfecting the art of relaxation. He’s content with finding the comfiest spot in the room and settling in for a leisurely nap. All he really needs in life is a plush, cozy bed, a sunbeam to bask in, and perhaps a feline cuddle buddy or two to share his peaceful moments with. Tai Shan’s journey began behind Mailee’s Thai restaurant in Scottsdale, where he and his three litter mates were rescued as kittens. While his fellow siblings found loving homes early on, Tai Shan remained in the shelter, patiently waiting for his forever family. Now, his plump and endearing presence is a testament to his resilience in holding out for his perfect human and the love he’s ready to offer.

Story
Midnight is a shy and mysterious mini panther beauty. She loves to climb in high or hidden places, and lives for dinner time, treat time, second dinner time, catnip time, and string toy time! Midnight knows what she wants and has a distinct and unforgettable meow, which she will use to tell you all of her thoughts on the speed her food is being delivered (hint: not fast enough). Never fully growing to trust people after a difficult early life, Midnight has spent a lot of her life in the shelter and gets along great with other cats. It would warm our hearts to find Midnight her very own forever home to retire in, with a loving and patient human family who let her be her shy self.

Story
Hello, I'm Pancake. I'm not one for the spotlight, preferring to observe from the shadows. I've always been a bit of an independent soul, finding joy in solitude. I enjoy my own company, but I also appreciate the occasional chin scratch. I'm not the type to demand constant attention. I'm content just being here, watching the world go by. But don't mistake my shyness for indifference. I have a lot of love to give, it just takes a bit of patience to see it. I may not be the first one you notice, but give me a chance. I promise, I'm worth it. Adopt me, not because I'm the loudest or the most playful, but because I'm me, Pancake, a cat with a quiet strength and a heart full of love. Pancake's foster describes her as the perfect cat. She is cuddly and talkative. Pancake loves love and pets and scratches on her back. Pancake was one of our first mama cats of the 2023 Kitten Season. All of her kittens were adopted, and she is still with us. She is beautiful and lovely; she deserves a loving home, just like all of her babies. My adoption fee is $100 and includes the following: -Spay/neuter surgery -All current vaccinations -Tested for FIV/FELV -Microchip -FREE wellness exam through VCA Animal Hospitals -$25 gift voucher from our friends at Choice Pet Market For more information about me or to schedule a meet and greet appointment, please complete an adoption questionnaire.

Hello there, I'm Kitten. Don't let my name fool you, I'm a grown-up lady. I'm fiercely independent and brave, unafraid to explore every nook and cranny. I'm not your typical feline, you see. I enjoy my solitude, but I also crave the occasional gentle stroke. However, I'm a bit particular about how I like to be petted, I've been told it's one of my charming quirks. Some of my favorite hobbies include munching on the finest catnip, birdwatching in a nice, sunny window, and batting at string toys. I'm looking for a forever home where I can continue to be my unique self with someone who understands my quirks and loves me for them. Could that be you? My adoption fee is $100 and includes the following: -Spay/neuter surgery -All current vaccinations -Microchip -Tested for FIV/FELV -FREE wellness exam through VCA Animal Hospitals -$25 gift voucher from our friends at Choice Pet Market For more information about me or to schedule a meet and greet appointment, please complete an adoption questionnaire.

Hello, I'm Leo. I might seem aloof at first, but give me time. I'm still learning to trust. I'm a bit of a loner, enjoying my own company. But don't let that fool you. I'm gentle, mellow, and fiercely loyal. I'm not one for rough play, preferring quiet moments of cuddles and purrs. I might take a while to warm up to you, but once I do, I promise to be the most loyal companion you've ever had. I need patient and experienced owners who can help me overcome my fears. In return, I offer a lifetime of love and loyalty. Adopt me and let's write our story together.

Story
I adopted Odysseus (Ody) from our family farm when he was 8 wks old (he turns 3yo in June). He's been a good companion for that time and is a good cat in general. Like most cats, he hides from guests for about a half hour before coming out to demand petting. He likes to be both indoors and outdoors. As a kitten, he was always outdoors or in the (large) equipment garage where there were many bugs and critters to hunt. Ody has been inside 95% of the time because I lived in an apartment or a townhome. He is litter trained and doesn't have accidents other than a hairball puke now and then. Unfortunately, Ody does not get along with other cats. My girlfriend moved in with her two older cats (13yo & 10yo) about a year ago and we have been unsuccessful at integrating the three of them. I like my cat and don't want to do this and have run out of things to try.
