Story
We have had Milo for about 2 years she is extremely loving but we had a child and we also have 2 other cats and 2 dogs she gets along with them fine no aggression but she gets stressed out if they are running and playing around her so she has started peeing out of her litter box , I think she needs a home with no kids and maybe older cats and dogs where she isn’t too stressed with a lot of noise.

Story
*June is part of our Take Time to Fall in Love Promotion. See our Adoption Procedures page for more details.* I came in as a stray cat and it’s been a scary last few months. Don’t misunderstand me, though; I may hiss, but as soon as you start petting me, especially little scratches around my neck and behind my ears, I start relaxing and purring a bit. It’s just that finding myself here, I wasn’t quite sure what to do at first. I do seem fine with cats. I am a sweet and gentle, petite girl that hopes my stay here will be a short one; all I need is for someone to ask about me.

Story
I was originally picked up as a stray and while my rescuers looked around to try to track down my family, unsuccessfully. They said that once I was settled, I was very sweet, very vocal and could easily be trained with treats. I enjoy bird watching, playing, riding on people’s shoulder and of course relaxing in your lap. I’m even quite handsome I’m told, and can be very fashionable. So if you enjoy taking pictures of a guy always ready to purr, maybe you will let me be your model…and your only cat. I am available for permanent foster, which means Save-A-Pet provides all the supplies and medications I may need when you take me home!

Story
*Cailyn is part of our Take Time to Fall in Love Promotion. See our Adoption Procedures page for more details.* When things quiet down is when you generally get to see me. I enjoy watching the birds or just even daydreaming in the sun. Lounging by myself is no fun so I always make sure to find a couple of other cats to snuggle up for my nap. I love chasing toy mice around the room, especially if no one is looking. I do enjoy getting my head and chin rubbed, there is a special trick and you will have to ask them, then I may even relax and lay down and allow petting on my back. If your cat is looking for a friend, I am ready.

Story
Stinky (born in 2012) is a spayed female brown tabby shorthaired cat. Stinky was trapped and spayed as an older kitten and returned to her colony. Unfortunately a few years later she was struck by a car and although she was lucky enough to survive, she did suffer several fractures in her lower spine. The spine injuries left her unable to control when she urinates or defecates but her caretaker had developed a bond with her and chose to continue caring for her until sadly he passed away in late 2016. She needs to be on stool softener twice a day to keep her system moving without conscious muscle control but thankfully she happily eats them on her own mixed in with a little wet food. She will need to be on those meds the rest of her life and obviously she requires more clean up than a normal cat and needs to be kept in a small, easy to clean area like a large dog crate, bathroom or spare bedroom with smooth flooring most of the time. Because of her outdoor kittenhood Stinky can be a little slow to warm up to new people but once she gets used to someone as one of her caretakers she loves to be petted and acts a lot more friendly. She has done well with the toddler in her foster home but because of her spinal cord damage we think Stinky needs to avoid excessive stress and would do best in a quieter home with no dogs or where she could be kept separately.

Story
Daisy (about 7 years old as of April, 2023) is a female black and white shorthaired cat. Daisy was born to a feral mother cat who had literally been dumping her kittens at one of our caretakers' house for years. They finally caught her but she was about to give birth, so these lucky kittens have been inside their whole lives. Daisy is a very vocal kitty who likes to meow about things as she goes through her day and will sometimes call out to figure out where people are if she wanders off alone expecting someone to call back to her or come find her. That sounds awfully needy but she is actually the most independent kitty from her litter. She is sweet and affectionate but doesn't want to cuddle until she is done playing and doesn't feel the need to be on top of someone smothering them every time she gets a few pets. That said, when she is in full cuddle mode she loves serious, firm pets so strong they pull the skin around her eyes back and exaggerate her already naturally silly long skinny face. She is very energetic and alert which can make her seem jumpy or skittish, but it's really just her goofy, playful nature showing. She does well with older kids and mostly gets along okay with most of the other cats in her foster home, but has had conflicts with a few of them and mostly keeps to herself so she might prefer living with only the one cat she always gets along with- her sister Primrose. We're hoping we can find a family willing to take them both, as the last time we tried to separate them they both were miserable. She hasn't ever lived with a dog and with her more sensitive nature and at her age she would probably be overwhelmed
