Finn and Olly are brothers and are bonded. They are both great cats but unfortunately I’m moving and can’t take them with me. Finn is very cuddly and great with kids. Both of my cats are declawed on the front paws. Finn loves balloons and will carry one around every where he goes.

Frodo is an extroverted lap cat, who is always craving affection. He is the sweetest pal you could ever hope for. Frodo will sleep beside you all day, even if you change locations. He does still have his kitten energy and would love to run and play in his new forever home, either with feline friends or with toys. He is extremely vocal; when he's awake, he will meow for pets or until you let him on your lap. He is okay with dogs, but prefers humans and cats. Frodo is a wonderful, cuddly companion. Frodo must be adopted with his brother Sam, they are a bonded pair that love each other so much!

Story
In a land far, far away....and it was years and YEARS ago (because foster mommy is really, REALLY old!), she told me she had a white boy kitten that looked just like me with a beautiful grey spot on the middle of his forehead. And she named him Crunchy Granola Suite. So, that is how I ended up with this name. I don't really care what my 'official' name is because she calls me Crunchy. And that is the sound I make when I chew on all that delicious kitty kibble that she feeds me! It sure beats trying to scrounge for something to eat underneath a house! Have you ever tried to live underneath a house? It is scary under there! There are spiders and bugs, which don't taste very good so don't try them if you do decide to go under a house to live. I tried them when I was super-duper hungry, but they were yucky! I really liked it when we were rescued and brought to foster mommy's house. I was small and really needed a bath! (It was stinky under that house!) I am growing quickly and will be going to get the snip-snip in another week or two, and then will be ready to go to my forever home after that! Hopefully I will have an application for adoption by then. My adoption fee is $150 and I am adoptable in the state of Texas only. As the great Neil Diamond says in his song.... "Crunchy Granola Suite Drop your Shrink and stop your drinkin' Crunchy Granola's neat. I think that means that I am good for your health! Adopt me!

***Fiona and Ross are a bonded pair, and must be adopted together.***My name is Fiona and I am a black domestic shorthair. I am a spayed female and I am 5 months old. I was found as a stray and a family has been caring for me, and the Ames Animal Shelter tooke me in to help find my forever home. I am a good kitty who uses the litterbox! I am a high energy cat (just like all kittens!) and I can live with an owner with no prior pet owning experience. I do not have a history of trying to escape the home, but the shelter staff always recommends owners be mindful that I do not accidentally sneak out on their way out the door. I can be good with men, women, and children. I can be good with other cats and I can be good with dogs.All cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, and cats over 6 months of age are tested for heartworms. They are also tested for intestinal parasites and receive routine dewormings. Cats are vaccinated against distemper and rabies, receive a flea preventative, are spayed/neutered before adoption, and have a microchip. Adoption fees include the initial automated registration of the microchip at the time of adoption.Below is information from the family who had been caring for Fiona and Ross:Two cute black kittens showed up at our house shortly before the major cold and snow spell in January. We brought them into our house to assess them and keep them safe until we could make arrangements for their future, since we already have a full cat household.`Ross` and `Fiona` got along well with our cats and turned out to be affectionate people-friendlySweeties. Ross is more relaxed and persistently curious, and he likes to snuggle on laps. Fiona is bolder and faster to explore, and she likes being picked up and petted. They enjoy grooming each other and are enthusiastic playmates. Chasing each other and batting crumpled-paper balls across the kitchen were favorite games. A pole-and-string feather toy was often pursued with lots of leaping
