Story
Before you read, please know that this special needs cat needs to be adopted with littermate sister & mama cat. I didnt want to promote confusion by posting them separately. My best friend has been diagnosed with fast moving disease which is forcing her to rehome her cats that she thought she was providing with forever homes. The adventurous loverboy Little Arthur is mostly blind & has cerebellar hypoplasia. His sis is the rambunctious & mischievous Caroline. Mama Cat helps Little Arthur climb up on low nap spots & comes to his aid when he's in distress. They all cat nap together, but Little Arthur & Mama Cat love being held & loved on. Caroline prefers to curl up with her cat family. Brother & sis do play together & love cat toys. Someone would need to be willing to spend as much time as my friend did helping Lil Arthur feel secure &confident. It took him about 3 days to recognize my voice-then I could pet & hold him. All 3 are so entertaining to watch & so loveable.

Story
Meredith used to be a member of a feral cat colony in Broussard. They have a caretaker that sees to their needs, and they all usually do fairly well there. However, we decided to take in Meredith because she was quite sick and needed to be on medication for multiple weeks. During that time, she's been in a foster home and has adjusted to the house-cat life quite well. She's now completely healthy and ready to find a forever home! Meredith is very much a diva and likes things her way. She's more like a roommate than a pet, to be honest. She can be very vocal when she wants something, usually either food or to go in/out of a specific room. She's not really a cuddley cat, but she does enjoy people's company. You'll often find her napping on the couch next to her foster parents while they're watching TV. The best way to win over Meredith's heart is through food - any kind of treats will do. You can also always count on her to join you in the kitchen when you're cooking food or sitting down for a meal. Meredith absolutely adores other cats and loves to play with the other foster kittens. Because of this, we'd love to see her go to a home that already has one or more friendly cats, but she'd probably be fine as an only child too. She's currently living with three large dogs and gets along with them quite well as long as they respect her personal space. Please consider letting Meredith join your family! *** If you'd like to make this pet part of your family, please fill out an online application today: https://form.jotform.com/211746872887169 *** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Would you like to help us with the financial cost of the pets in our care?

Story
Amaya is an energetic, funny, sweet and playful young cat. She loves people and is fine with the big, gentle dog that she’s been around, but does not like other cats. She would be best as an only pet or with dogs. She is great with kids and loves to play with all kinds of toys. She loves human affection. She will come sleep on your lap as you watch tv, or follow you around the house. Amaya has tons of energy, as she is still under 2 years old, and would be great for a family with children, or for someone alone who wants a playful, sweet, loving companion. Please consider adopting Queen Amaya and being her furrever home, as she has been overlooked time and time again at every adoption event since December 2023. *** If you'd like to make this pet part of your family, please fill out an online application today: https://form.jotform.com/211746872887169 *** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Would you like to help us with the financial cost of the pets in our care?

Story
Aries is a gentle and curious boy, but can also be a bit shy. He enjoys playing with his toys and watching the birds from his cat tree by the window. He's also very curious and likes to be nearby and watch you do household chores which is flattering and sweet. He likes to be around people, but prefers a little distance. It often seems like he wants to jump in your lap or cuddle, but is conflicted about that level of contact. Occasionally he will snuggle for a short time, but needs someone to be patient and gentle with him and help him continue to open up. He has a brother named Scorpio and they would ideally be adopted as a pair. *** If you'd like to make this pet part of your family, please fill out an online application today: https://form.jotform.com/211746872887169 *** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Would you like to help us with the financial cost of the pets in our care?

Story
Scorpio is a sweet, playful and curious boy, full of energy. He's around 1.5 years old, has a youthful spirit and wants to explore as much as possible! He loves to drink dripping water from the bathtub faucet, chase his toy snake, paw-open doors, and when he tires out, he may retreat to his little cat cave or come rest in the crook of your arm. He can be mischievous by way of jumping on counters or playing with random household items, and requires someone who can work with that and patiently guide him. He has a brother named Aries and they would prefer to stay together but can also be adopted separately. *** If you'd like to make this pet part of your family, please fill out an online application today: https://form.jotform.com/211746872887169 *** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Would you like to help us with the financial cost of the pets in our care?

Story
Meet Pina Colada! She is our shy girly at the moment and even still, has come so far since she first transferred to us back in December. She was so scared and on edge and she couldn't trust anyone, it was just too scary. She has always loved the comfort and safety of her favorite box but she has really taken to a volunteer who comes to spend time with her regularly. Once she is comfortable with you she comes out of her box to show her beautiful markings and her sweet, loving, and playful side! Now that she is feeling more comfortable she is looking for the purrrfect home that will accept and love her for who she is. We feel that a calm, fairly quiet home is what she needs. She also needs someone who understands her timidness and wants to spend time breaking boundaries and bonding with her. If that is you, fill out the adoption request form and get this sweet girl out of the shelter so she can shine! Update: She is thriving in a foster home currently, she just needed to get out of the shelter and she is loving it. Turns out she is very cuddly and loves to be by her person, still timid and would need a calmer home but so much more confident than at the shelter!
