Story
Holli and Billy Holli - Domestic Short Hair, Born April 2023, Black, Spayed Female Billy - Domestic Medium Hair, Born April 2023, Black, Neutered Male Hi there! We are a brother and sister team! To tell us apart, I am Billy and I am big and fluffy. My sister is Holli and she is more petite.  Believe it or not, I was the one who needed more socialization initially but now I’m the one who will come up to you first and nuzzle against you particularly if you have what I refer to as kitten cookies (aka treats) for us. We both love when our foster mom sits with us during our KCBT (kitten cookie bonding time) as we eat them from her hand and lap and get lots of love and petting.    We don't just live for treats, we also love running through the tunnel, plus the wand toys are so much fun. I particularly like the small size tennis ball toy to bat around and we both love small toys to chase around the room.    So . . .  we need you to know that we are still a little shy around new people and new situations. We are also not fans of loud noises. It will take us some time to feel comfortable in our new home. But if you are patient and have a nice, calm house we would love that and you’ll be able to hear us happily purring away.    If you are looking for playful, older kittens but not the crazy super high energy kind, who appreciate the finer things in life like quality lap time, petting, and of course cookies, then we are the pair for you. One boy and one girl, one of us super fluffy and the other with a sleek short hair coat — isn’t that the purrfect combo to join you in our new furever home?   Holli and I are a bonded pair and must be adopted together! Adoption Information:  Children: Yes, older, cat experienced    Cats: Yes, with proper introduction  Dogs: Unknown  Adoption Fee: $200 for the pair  They are microchipped, spayed, and have had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines.  To get more info please fill out our online adoption survey. Surveys are responded to in order, so don't miss out! carenorthshore.org/cat-adoption-survey June 12, 2024, 9:35 pm

Ruby & RyanRuby - Domestic Shorthair, Born May 2023, Tortie Tabby, Spayed FemaleRyan - Domestic Shorthair, Born May 2023, Orange & White Tabby, Neutered MaleOK, boys and girls ~ today we’re going to learn all about the letter “R”.  First and most importantly, R is for me, Ruby!, and my brother, Ryan!  Now, you might think that’s all there is, but no, there’s more! R is also for:Radiant – our foster mom says that’s the purrfect word to describe us and our purrsonalities!  We are real charmers most of the time, but oh, those occasional little hissy fits?  Well, that’s just a touch of sass to keep everyone on their toes!Rambunctious – yup, that’s a good word for us too!  We love, love, love to play with our toys or chase through the house and wrestle each other as we go.  Respectful – ummm, this one’s about you, not us.  We are looking for some furever people who will respect our preference for a quiet and peaceful home, and our need to take things slow.  We are still pretty shy and can get scared when things around us change.  Well, the list of R words is endless, Really, but we think you get the idea.  So, if you are someone who is looking to Rescue two Rascally youngsters and give them a loving home to Reside in, then you should come meet us ~ Right now!Ryan and I are a bonded pair and must be adopted together!

Story
Rumba and Salsa Rumba DSH Gray and White and Salsa: DMH Gray Tabby It's been said,  'It is with your feet that you move, but it is with your heart that you dance.' That's where we come in. I'm Rumba and this guy next to me is my brother Salsa. My foster mom says my ears are as big as my personality. I have been dubbed the life of the party. I will charm you with my affectionate leg rubs, feet rubs, any part of your body I can reach rubs. Oh and my love for squeezie treats is certainly a way to win me over quickly. I'm a playful dude that adores string toys and I promise to keep you entertained for hours with my dance moves. We both have excellent litter box habits, our only request is a tall sided litter box.  Salsa, my brother, is elegant and mysterious. He's a vision of beauty with his longish grey fur and ginormous paws which help him keep his footing while dancing. He may start off shy and might hiss from time to time but never in a mean way - underneath that reserved exterior is a heart of gold. He enjoys quiet moments perched high, with a watchful gaze, observing the world around him. While hesitant at first, once he trusts you, he's all in for affection on his terms, and he really appreciates a gentle back rub. Are you looking to spice up your life with some feline flair? Come meet us, Rumba and Salsa, the purrfect pair ready to dance our way into your heart!Age: Born September 2023Breed: DSH Gray & White (Rumba),  DMH Gray Tabby (Salsa)Gender: MaleChildren: Yes, older, cat experiencedCats: Yes, with proper introductionDogs: UnknownPurrsonality Traits: Sweet, Playful, Shy at first, Affectionate These kittens will be spayed/neutered, microchipped and have full veterinary checkup and vaccines.

Hope and Cha Cha Hope - Domestic Shorthair, Born October 2023, Brown Tabby, Spayed FemaleCha Cha - Domestic Shorthair, Born September 2023, Black, Spayed Female Hey ~ have you ever heard someone use the expression “what’s in a name?”.  Well, for me, everything!!!  Because my name is Hope and that describes my life perfectly ever since I was rescued by C.A.R.E. and they gave me that name.  See if you agree:  first I Hoped for a loving foster home ~ and I got one!  Next, I Hoped that I could learn to not be so afraid of people ~ and I’m really getting the hang of that!  And then, I Hoped for a big sister ~ and I got one of those, too!!!  Even though Cha Cha is only a month older than me and she really isn’t my biological sister, I love her like a real sister.  And like all big sisters, she’s shown me how to do a lot of new stuff ~ like how to play with things that aren’t “official” toys (think toilet paper roll), and how to dance the Cha Cha, of course!  Together we are helping each other get used to the things that frighten us and are finding that life is not as scary when you have a friend by your side.  So are you someone with a big heart that will help us continue on the path of Hope and give us a loving and safe home ~ furever?  If so, we can’t wait to meet you.Cha Cha and I are a bonded pair now and must be adopted together!
