Story
Olivia is a very snuggly cat. She loves it when the lights are off at night because she knows it's time for bed and she gets to snuggle in. She loves being close to you but she is not needy. She has no problem being independent. She would just look out the windows to watch the birdies or contemplate her life, while you are occupied with your day. She is a very clean cat and doesn't make a mess. She is also litter trained. She gets along with all of her foster cat siblings and even with a bunny. She knows exactly what she wants and will communicate in her own way when she doesn't like something. She has a very unique personality. She is assertive and expects respect for her boundaries, making her a great companion for those who understand her need for boundaries and her space when she needs one. Please submit an adoption application if you are interested: https://forms.gle/JNvQG3Dva96z8oMs9. All cats and kittens will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, and complete FVRCP vaccination prior to adoption.

Story
Hey there! I'm Moxi, the spunky little feline with a heart of gold. My journey hasn't been the smoothest, but hey, what's life without a few bumps along the way, right? Rescued from a neighborhood where raccoons ruled the roost, I've got a tale to tell! After a little setback with my leg, I came back stronger than ever. Now, I'm all about playtime, and maybe a sneaky treat or two. I can be sassy towards new friends, but deep down I love making friends! Please submit an adoption application if you are interested: https://forms.gle/JNvQG3Dva96z8oMs9. All cats and kittens will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, and complete FVRCP vaccination prior to adoption.

Story
Gravy is the ultimate chill companion, a laid-back grey cat. He loves morning cuddles, rubbing his face against yours, and grooming your hands with affectionate licks. He'll happily follow you around, lounge nearby or snuggle up on the bed. While he's not one for high-energy play, he'll indulge in some string or ribbon antics now and then. Gravy is all about the gentle touch – no rough claws and no strong playful bites. Gravy's not a big fan of wet food; he prefers dry kibbles left out for him. Please submit an adoption application if you are interested: https://forms.gle/JNvQG3Dva96z8oMs9. All cats and kittens will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, and complete FVRCP vaccination prior to adoption.

Story
Meet Mango (female) and Milo (male) a combination of sweet and sassy. These two kittens have been fostered together and have become fast friends. They are about 2.5 months old. Milo was shy at first but he has really come into his own. He is very vocal and has a sweet temperament. He doesn’t bite or scratch and will sleep on your lap if you let him. His tuxedo coloring (black and white) makes him look very handsome. Mango (light orange coloring) is like a big sister. She plays rough with Milo but then they nap and sleep together. She’s a little ball of energy and loves to play chase. Her favorite activity is chasing feathers at the end of a fishing pole. She’s fearless and curious and always waiting for the next adventure. Both are hardy eaters. They enjoy both wet and dry food. After a meal they both purr and settle down for a nap. They both like to sleep on a cat tree in a cubby. Mango and Milo have been fostered with several adult cats and get along well with them. If you are considering pets for your household consider Mango and Milo. They will keep each other company while you are at work and will look forward to spending time with you when you get home. They are to be adopted together. Please submit an adoption application if you are interested: https://forms.gle/JNvQG3Dva96z8oMs9. All cats and kittens will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, and complete FVRCP vaccination prior to adoption.

Story
Hello, I'm Mimi, the charming black and white tuxedo kitty with a heart full of love. The moment you enter the room, my purr motor will start, and I can't help but show my affection by following you everywhere. As you walk, I am known to rub my body against your legs, letting you know that I've chosen you as my favorite human. Oh, and if I choose you to be my favorite, let's talk about bathroom time – it will be our special bonding moment! I'll be right there, keeping you company and making sure you feel the love even in the most private moments....and I will follow you there every time!  I might be a tad reserved initially, maybe even be a scardy cat but once I trust you, get ready for a lifetime of companionship and affection. I am first to greet you when you get home from work and will say hello. If you're looking for a sweet feline friend who'll be your shadow, I'm here, waiting to fill your life with purrs, head bumps, and a whole lot of love.  Mimi is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, flea treated, microchipped, FIV/FeLV tested, and is now looking for her furrever family. Could that be yours? Applications are required.   MUST FOLLOW APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: 1) Go to  https://www.kittenrescue101.org/adopt/available-cats and Click "adopt" on the cat's profile you are interested in. Clicking adopt does not mean that you are adopting this cat. It will take you to an application to fill out which is the first step of the adoption process. (NOTE: If the kitten is a bonded pair, do not apply for him/her as a single kitten. These applications will not be considered)  2) If your application is approved, you will receive a call back within 2-3 days with an appointment time slot. We do our best to match the cat to the best environment/family/situation as possible based on the cat's personality and temperament.  ##1874601##

Story
Hey there, I'm Charlie – the big, muscular guy, ready to  sweep you off your feet and steal your heart! If you're looking for a feline friend who's all about love and affection, then look no further. I am your man- ahem, I mean cat. I may have a very masculine presence, but deep down, I'm just a big softie with an insatiable appetite for affection and pets. One of my favorite things to do is to walk in between your legs, just to let you know I'm here and also to follow you to wherever you are going. In the morning, I will walk you to your car like a gentleman! Just be careful to not trip on me as you walk. I'm not shy about letting you know when I want pets – a gentle nudge here and there should do the trick! Although I'm big and masculine, my meows are little squeaks. You'd never know it's me!  I am the Father of Mimi- my little girl who is also available for adoption. Grooming, cuddling, playing- I do it all. Mimi and I love supervised outdoor time in our foster mama's big backyard, lounging in the sun, and feeling the fresh air. We were originally outdoor feral cats, but have learned that indoors in a warm cozy house with my loving human is so much better than the scary outdoors! I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, flea treated, microchipped, and now looking for my furrever family. Could that be yours? Applilcation is required for a meet & greet.  Mimi and Charlie have both been patiently awaiting their furever homes and would be stoked if they could be adopted together especially because Charlie is FIV+. Historically, FIV- positive cats have often been considered un-adoptable, and are euthanized in many shelters. However, new research has shown that FIV-positive cats are in fact very adoptable, and can live the same lifespan as an FIV-negative cat. (Read more here: https://vbspca.com/what-you-should-know-when-adopting-an-fiv-positive-cat/) Charlie is now an indoor kitty and would love the chance to join a loving and warm family. Could that be yours?   MUST FOLLOW APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: 1) Go to  https://www.kittenrescue101.org/adopt/available-cats and Click "adopt" on the cat's profile you are interested in.
