Story
Allura is a very special girl near and dear to our hearts. She is a spunky, pocket sized cat with a playful spirit who loves to shower you in little kisses. She's earned the nickname "Chirp" for all the cute little noises she makes. She gets along great with cats, dogs and children. When we rescued Allura with her siblings almost a year ago we discovered at her first vet appointment that she had a significant heart murmur, a condition she was most likely born with. Now, with a lot of kittens these heart murmurs will resolve on their own. Allura's did not. We spoke to several other rescues who guided us that getting an echocardiogram, while may shed light on her specific heart condition, would ultimately lead down a rabbit hole of diagnostics with no real solution to Allura's broken heart. Open heart surgery is too expensive and dangerous for Tabby Nation to be able to consider it a legitimate solution in Allura's case. Yes, it is true that Allura's life expectancy may be shortened because of her heart condition, but she also may live a very full and happy life without needing any intervention. Cardiac cases in cats are just like that and you never know which end of it you're going to get. While she is happily residing with her foster family, we would love for this sweet girl with a heart too good for this world to have a shot at a forever home, no matter how long she has. If you're the type of person who has a heart big enough to embrace a broken hearted cat like Allura, please reach out to us so we can discuss the details of this special adoption.

Story
I am a sleek, gorgeous Russian Blue with the most mesmerizing green eyes! I'm an energetic and playful kitty who loves wand toys, balls, and climbing to the top of the cat tower to see what’s going on below. I am super affectionate and loving and will rub up all over you or plop down on the floor next to you for love, and really want to be your buddy and be near you. I am a special boy who is looking for an experienced cat person to call my very own who will pet me and love me but knows when I'm done. I want to be the only fur baby in your life. If you pick me, I promise to love you forever!! PS I go crazy for Churu treats!!

Story
Judah is a thicc boned boy with the biggest heart and all the love in the world to give. He was rescued from a colony in Chino where he was having rendezvous with the lady cats in the area. A wonderful rescuer in the area put an end to his frat partying and then he was transferred down to Tabby Nation. You will not meet a sweeter cat than Judah. He loves to be held, kissed, cuddled and pet aggressively. No type of big love is too big for Judah, even toddler-pulling-on-tail type of love. This confident man is great with cats (dogs unknown), kids and humans of all ages. He is FIV positive due to his scrappy life outdoors but as long as he lives a life indoors free from all the germs in the wild you wouldn't even know it. FIV+ cats can live just fine with other cats who are negative because the virus can only be spread through mating and significant blood transfer. His life expectancy will not be inhibited just because he's FIV+. Judah is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, had flea treatment and is microchipped. If you need big love from a big boy in your life today apply for Judah!

Story
Cricket grew up on the road as part of a carnival sideshow act known as The Ventrilocats. It was a family act, and Cricket was one of 10 siblings famous for their vocalizations. She enjoyed it as a child, but once she hit adulthood, she'd had enough of the traveling lifestyle. Now with us, this confident, outgoing girl has discovered that the good life consists of a warm home. She hasn't lost her performer-level energy--she still loves to play with her humans and explore--but once she gets her energy out, she'll happily curl up on the bed with purrs and loving blinks. She also still loves to talk! She'll use her voice daily to let you know her thoughts, especially telling you that you're her person and she's going to stay close to you (or asking you why you're in the shower). Don't be a dummy, give Criecket a chance to win your heart today! Primary Color: Brown Tabby Age: 1yrs 1mths 0wks
