Story
Meaning lion in Hebrew, Areyeh is the sweetest little lion cub who's loyal to his family, or pack, and patiently waiting for his forever family! Given his loving, gentle, and playful nature, we think Areyeh would make the perfect companion for an energetic family, a young couple, or a home with other cats. Although he hasn't had the opportunity to meet a dog yet, once he's comfortable in a space, he's confident, so it's likely he'd do well joining a home with other pets. Areyeh's activity level is well-balanced and predictable, where he enjoys getting his laps in down the hallway, exploring windowsills, scratching at posts, and playing with his most favorite cotton toy. He also enjoys playing with people and will cautiously bat at string or ribbon you wave. When he's tired out from playtime, Areyeh certainly likes to spend his downtime next to you. In fact, his foster family says he loves to keep a paw on your leg as he sleeps, keeping closeness and establishing affection. And at night, you'll likely find him curled up on a pillow, staying close to those he loves. Areyeh is a sweetheart who we're certain will win your heart over. Come meet him!

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Meet Penny! Beneath her shy and timid exterior, she's an independent young lady searching for a tranquil home. And just like Penny's foster mom, you won't be able to resist Penny's cuteness-her "little chirping meow and how she "plays with her toys and dances around. Penny keeps herself busy with a daily to-do list. Her many tasks include playing, eating Temptations cat treats, lounging on the sofa, using her litter box enthusiastically, and learning about scratching posts. Penny's favorite piece of furniture is the sofa, especially if it has a cozy blanket. As she becomes more comfortable with her surroundings, she'll sit close by while you binge-watch a Netflix show or read. And from her sofa perch, she can keep an eye on her favorite people and monitor the street outside her window. When she's not being a couch potato, Penny's preferred form of cardio is batting around fuzzy round toys and pouncing on them-especially the ones with bells or catnip. Penny has her own set of rules about proper social etiquette and will let you know when she needs her alone time. But if you're patient and respect her personal space, you'll be rewarded with Penny's trust and companionship. Once she gives you permission to proceed, she loves scratches on her cheeks, under her chin, and on top of her head. Penny's foster mom thinks Penny is actually a "secret love bug! Penny will be happiest in a calm home where she can settle in at her own pace. She is a playful 3-year-old and would love to have a feline friend in her new home, too though she is also okay alone. So if you're looking for a low-key companion to chill with, then Penny is your girl! Give her the life and love she longs for!
