This sweet girl is pixie. Pixie is a 100, who is looking for her fur-ever, home pixie enjoys pets, and receiving attention from her people as she snuggles up with them. This young lady is very calm and has not displayed much interest in playing with toys. She seems to enjoy being held. Pixie has the best purr- sounds like a squeaky wheel! We are not sure how pixie would do with other animals.

Story
Little Bit is a handsome 6 year old orange tabby. He was rescued as a sickly kitten by his original owner who recently passed away. Little Bit is now healthy, neutered, and up to date on his vaccines. Little Bit is missing most of his teeth, including his front teeth, which means the tip of his tongue is frequently out (a rather endearing look, if you ask us). Little Bit loves all people, but not all other animals; he’d prefer to be an only-pet. Thank you for your interest in adopting from HMF.  All of our pets are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and otherwise healthy, unless noted in the description.  Our adoption area is within 50 miles of Franklin/Bargersville, IN. Email hopemariesfund@gmail.com with any questions. March 30, 2024, 12:09 am

Story
Hi! I’m Nelson! I’m a sweet four year old male and I love to talk. I was found as a stray but know I’m in good hands now. When you first meet me, I may be a little shy. But, once I get to know you, I’ll purr. I’m up-to-date on everything and neutered. I’m fine with being around other cats, but would probably do best in a home that has older kids and calm dogs. If you would like to meet me, please contact Hope Marie’s Fund for more information. Thank you for your interest in adopting from HMF.  All of our pets are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and otherwise healthy, unless noted in the description.  Our adoption area is within 50 miles of Franklin/Bargersville, IN.

Story
Parker is a former feral who can be a little bit of a shy guy but he's the sweetest with time and patience. When you first meet him, his instinct is to run away but give him just a little time and he will turn into a giant love bug. Because of Parker's more tentative nature, he would do best in a quiet, calm home where he can slowly open up. He will need an experienced cat owner, another cat in the home, and no children.

Story
Hi there, my name is Catterlee and it's good to "meet" you. I know there are thousands of cats available for adoption right meow and you're probably wondering why I think you should adopt me. Basically, I'm just a really cool cat. I can be a little shy when we first meet but who isn't? It's weird and nerve wracking meeting someone for the first time, especially when you're looking at a lifelong commitment, right? Once we get acquainted you'll quickly find that I'm the kind of girl you can sit on the couch and eat pizza with (or you'll eat and I'll try to steal), I'll help you with any kind of computer work, and we can play for however long you'd like because I LOVE to play. At the end of the day we could cuddle up in bed and remember why today was the best day ever, even if it really didn't seem like it because I promise I'll do my best to make the every day the best day of your life for the rest of mine. That's just what best friends do. I do need an age appropriate feline in the home so if you don't have one, we can do a double adoption!

Story
Shoshonne is a quiet, calm girl who loves to be around people whenever she has the chance. We often find her lounging quietly with the other cats or hanging out on the cat tree just waiting for the opportunity to be noticed by someone with hands to pet her. Her calmness is relaxing and welcoming after a long day. She longs for a home that will appreciate these aspects of her personality and treasure her for them. Shoshonne's forever home includes humans to pet her and another cat as a buddy to hang out with and sometimes play with.
