Story
Fred is the strong silent type. He keeps to himself and loves to just hang around. He has been at the shelter for almost an entire year with zero interest. His aloof personality makes him a very low maintenance companion. When he first came to the shelter he would hiss and hide anytime someone came near him. Now, he just lazes about. He would be the perfect roommate. He and his littermates have not been given the chance to enjoy life. With time we think he will gain more confidence and will make a wonderful companion.

Story
Shaggy and Scooby are best friends and want to stay together. They need time and patience to warm up and feel comfortable, but once they do they are two pretty cool cats. Scooby is the more outgoing of the two and is a total chatterbox. While Shaggy is just like the laidback, scaredy cat, beatnik we all know and love. He would rather just hang around than be under your feet or in your face all the time. If you have a quiet home to let these guys warm up to you they would be forever grateful.

Story
Daphne is a scared girl who is slowly warming up. She lived in a house with too many cats and did not get enough attention. She has to learn to trust you. If you are looking for a girl who isn't needy and that demands attention, then Daphne is your girl. She loves to find cubby holes to curl up into and take a nap. She always comes when there is wet food is involved, and will let you pet her if you go slowly and calmly. We really feel she will thrive in a home if given the chance.Update: Daphne has really come out of her shell. She will come to you for attention now and can be seen running and playing around the cat room. Her favorite place is the catio when the weather is nice. And she greets new visitors by rubbing up on your leg! She has come so far and has really blossomed! This fiery red head deserves a loving home.

Marshal unfortunately had to be returned to shelter because he and his sister did not get along with the family dog as they had hoped. Marshal is very large boy. He is so handsome and also very ornery! He is very curious by nature and loves to meet new people. He loves to be pet and is also very playful! His handsomely adorable face has us all swooning.
