Frank is 1 year old. We are looking for a new home for him because he does not get along well with one of our 2 other cats. He is very friendly, loves cuddles, and loves being petted. He is very good with our toddler. We are sad to see him go, but our older cat has not adapted to him well.

Story
Lola is a lovely, gorgeous orange little girl, about 7 months old. She came to us as a very scared stray kitty fand has recently starting blossoming into her own gentle, kind personality. She will certainly grow into her ears when she gets older and will fill out nicely, we are positive. Lola is in Kitty City right now so the little ones in Kitten Corral do not overwhelm her. She is gaining confidence as each day passes with our staff helping her every step of the way. Lola will do best in a quiet home with another young, playful kitten or a teenager that is very respectful of her space. We want to make sure Lola continues on her journey to trust humans and other animals but slowly and on her own terms. She truly is a real beauty now. We can only imagine her when she's fully grown! ........... Please come meet this sweet soul soon! (We keep our posts up-to-date.) We do ADOPTIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, on a first-come/first serve basis. The EASIEST and QUICKEST way to make an appointment is to click the blue "Book Now" button at the top of our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/maccoanimalcontrol. If there is a pet you really want, we highly recommend making an appointment as early and soon as possible, since we generally are first-come, first-serve. Be sure and write this pet’s name in the note section of the form, so we know who you want to see. No need to email us prior to making an appointment, unless you have a specific question. If you are not on FaceBook, tell us that when you fill out the form on this page or email us. Appointments are available: Mon., Wed, Thurs.~ 10am-2:30pm Fri. & Sat.~ 8:30-Noon ***NOTE: Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, microchip and vaccines; all required before adoptions are finalized.

Story
Poor Callie came here with her bestie Cubby on 8/28 after their owner passed away. Callie had a rough start with us; her world was turned upside down and it has been tough for her to cope. She's a very sensitive kitty. She is finally showing us her true personality and realizes we are not bad people. Callie loves to be petted, explore her surroundings and lay around. She is a stunning girl! Her colors are so vibrant it's hard to believe she's real. Miss Callie is a plump roly-poly and really needs a home that will help her with healthy weight management...in other words, a diet. She is a typical calico and has some "catitude" so she will do best in a no kids home, or at least older kids. Other than that, this big girl is a real treat and will lay on the couch with you the entire day! This beauty likes her buddy Cubby, so if you are looking to double down, here is your deal of a lifetime. ........... Please come meet this sweet soul soon! (We keep our posts up-to-date.)

Smokey is a big boy that is a lover and a little bit independent. He'd rather be loved by you than roam around. This guy is still playful. He came to us as an owner relinquish but has truly thrived since we got him. He is healthy and happy but would be much happier if he had a forever, loving home to grow old with someone. ...........
