Story
Tiptoe is a 4 yo happy gal!  She is shy at first, but then very friendly.  She has the cutest tiny little meow when she’s wanting attention.  She is good with other cats, dogs and all people and is the sweetheart that helps welcome new cats into the home.  She loves to cuddle with another cat and loves her catto treats! She was found living in a field behind McDonalds, where many cats and kittens were living, and she spent this time with her friend Midnight.  She would do best in a home with another cat and would absolutely love to be adopted with her bestie Midnight (if adopted together adoption fee will be lowered). To apply, please visit the about us section on Petfinder and Adopt a Pet or visit our website to apply (amtrescue.org).  To expedite your application process, please be as detailed as possible in your answers, email photos of your home (inside and outside),and email any applicable pet policies. We look forward to hearing from you! ##1951932##

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.A Fabio kitty - Sister to Han and Luke, Leia was rescued by our good friend Fabio in Orlando. Leia's beautiful swirl markings remind us of her namesake princess. Leia is a sweet girl but on the skittish side. Not much of a cuddler, she is the perfect cat if you need a princess to serve and worship. I believe she would thrive with a more dedicated staff than her loving foster parents can provide. But she may always be a little aloof. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. As a non-profit, we charge a nominal fee for all adoptions.

Story
Looking for an experienced cat lover who likes the challenge of a big feisty cat! I have a cat that I received back in 2018 that ended up having a lot of stress/fear issues. He has warmed up over the years and is very sweet when he gets comfortable but he becomes overstimulated easily and since I've had 2 kids recently, he's definitely on edge a lot. He has lived in my spare room since I got him in 2018 due to his stress and the fact that I have another cat who doesn't get along with him. He takes anxiety medication and had a p/u surgery after a few urinary blockages over the past few years. Unfortunately he doesn't get the attention he deserves with all my time devoted to my babies and I just want him to have a better quality of life with someone who has more time than I do. We can't risk our kids getting hurt so if you're interested in a feisty but sweet boy, Billy's perfect for you!

Story
Meet Spoon, the sweet, social kitty. She loves people, and will not hesitate to fall asleep on your chest. She was the runt of her litter, and as such has some issues. However, Atopica in her food once every other day has been the ultimate solution. Spoon is extremely well-tempered, but she is timid, and my other cat is not. She has come to greatly dislike him, hissing even behind closed doors. Without him present, she could not be sweeter. I would love to find her a patient, loving home that can give her the care she needs, while also de-stressing her environment. I know she is not comfortable here.

Story
Please note Camry is FeLV (Feline Leukemia) positive. This virus easily spread to other cats so Camry will need to be an only cat or adopted into a home with other FeLV cats. Please  use the provided links to read moreabout FeLV.  https://www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/infectious-parasitic/feline-leukemia-virus-felv  https://www.vet.cornell.edu/departments-centers-and-institutes/cornell-feline-health-center/health-information/feline-health-topics/feline-leukemia-virus Meet Camry (her foster mama renamed her Sombra which means shadow in Spanish as she is her little shadow!), the most fluffy, playful, loving kitten you will meet. Although Sombra has been diagnosed with FeLV she runs, plays, eats, sleeps, and snuggles just like any other kitten does. She LOVES to play with her wand toys and expects hours of playtime from her humans. She has her best friend, a stuffed dog, that she suckles and sleeps with every night. Cardboard boxes are so much fun to play in, along with paper bags and pom pom toys! Sombra entertains herself well, but very much enjoys the companionship of humans. She is a wonderful assistant when working on the computer, loves to snuggle when watching Netflix and will wake you up in the morning when she is ready to play or eat breakfast so no need for an alarm clock! Sombra would very much like a buddy to play with so if you have a cat that is FeLV positive and are looking for a bestie, Sombra is your girl! She is very laid back and acclimates easily to change, she has been healthy and is on no special diet or any medicine. She does have L-Lysine supplement in her food daily which helps support her immune system. If you are a looking for a fluffy, soft, loving, playful kitten to join your family Sombra is your girl!  ##1710148##
