Story
Meet Ivy!Ivy is a timid, quiet, mellow girl who enjoys the simple things in life; gentle attention, people watching, and curling up in cozy beds. Ivy was brought back to KVHS due to no fault of her own; she has previously lived with other kitties and done ok with them. Ivy is also on a prescription C/D diet, this helps prevent crystals from forming in her urine which could lead to blockages. This is a vet prescribed diet! Due to her fearful behaviors, Ivy would love a home with children over the age of 12.Interested in meeting Ivy? Swing on down to KVHS during available adoption hours!

Story
Meet Penny!Do you like independent? Spirited? A bit of a kick to her personality? Penny is your girl! She has not shown her real personality here at KVHS. She can be best described as a sour patch kids; sometimes she's sweet, sometimes she's sour. In her previous home, she was described as "Playful, affectionate, friendly, and shy." We have not seen her shy side, though! Penny has previously lived with a female cat, and her previous owner recommends she can live with other cats! We are recommending that she go to a dog-free home. Penny has also been an inside only kitty! Due to some of her behaviors we have seen here, she's looking for a home with older children (Ages 10+) that will respect her boundaries!Interested in meeting Penny?

Story
Meet Snowdrift!Here, he has been described as a "Sour patch kid" sometimes sweet, sometimes sour. Truth is, Snow-boy here doesn't really know what he wants. he enjoys cheek scratches, but not for too long. He LOVES wet food, and that has been how we are working on building a positive association with humans! His ideal home would be someone paitent while he works out the rules and quirks of a house cat, giving him plenty of time to settle into a new routine!While here in the shelter, Snowdrift has been overgrooming due to stress. He's currently on anxiety medication that he will be weaned off through your vet when you adopt. He's also on a prescription diet to help with his skin. It's called Z/D! This is also a food you will need to get through your vet! Snowdrift is FIV+, this is feline immune virus. It's a disease that is purely between cats, other animals (Or humans) cannot get it. This means he MUST remain an indoor only cat to make sure he doesn't spread it. We do not know how Snowdrift is with other cats. He must be an only cat or with other FIV+ cats!Interested in Snowdrift? Swing on down to KVHS during available adoption hours!

Story
Meet Dell!This little girl is a little on the shyer side; she's quiet and mellow. Dell's perfect home would be one that gives her time to adjust to a house-cat life. She's originally a stray, so we don't know if she has ever been in a house! She's from a place where a known colony of kitties resides; so we think she'd do well with a social/friendly kitty to follow around! Dell would enjoy her home to be free of young kiddos who don't understand boundaries!Interested in meeting her? Swing on down to KVHS during available adoption hours!

Story
Meet Laurel!This girl has the spice of life in her! She loves to be adventurous, loves to explore, and does enjoy soaking up attention from people! Sometimes she can get overstimulated with attention and will swat to tell you she's had enough. Due to this, we recommend a home with children over the age of 5yrs, or respectful children who will allow her to have those boundaries! Laurel has not been a fan of other kitties here at KVHS, so we think a home without them would be best! Having been a stray, we do not know how she does with dogs. Slow and proper introductions with them is a must!Interested in this pretty kitty? Swing on down to KVHS during available adoption hours!

Story
Chloe is a sweet but very timid kitty who is looking for a calm and quiet home. She needs a patient and loving family who can give her all the time she needs to really settle in to the new environment. She will likely hide for the first few weeks in her new home but we are sure that once she warms up that she'll be very affectionate. Although we don't know much about her previous history we believe that she would do best in a home with older children who can give her space when she needs it. We are unsure of how she would do with other animals.If you are interested in Chloe and think that she would be a wonderful addition to your family please come in and ask about her!

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
This rare and elusive creature is a Land Shark. This one seems to be a slightly older female. This Land Shark would thrive in a home with catnip toys, cat towers and enrichment to keep her busy and happy. She will need sunny windows to sit in as she requires sun and entertainment to thrive. A home without other animals or children is her preferred habitat. She requires a balanced diet of healthy food and despite being a Land Shark, will need fresh water daily. As a common Land Shark behavior, she loves to roll around and show her family her belly to show her trust and love for you and beg for attention at her convenience. If you are interested in adopting Land Shark, please stop by to see her!

This handsome stud is Oriole and he loves to play! Oriole is a cat who would thrive with lots of enrichment and exercise as he is happiest when he has things to do! He can become overstimulated at times and would love a family who will give him space when he wants alone time and a cat tree or perches would be great for him to enjoy some personal space! He likes to take his time to decompress but can be very sweet on his terms and has a funny personality once he is all settled in. A home with older children would be best because of this. He would prefer a home as the only pet so he can be King of his new castle! Oriole will need to meet with his potential adopters many times to gain trust with them before being able to go home!Come in to meet more about this playful, wonderful kitty!

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
I am 15 years old and searching for a relaxing home to retire to as I have been stressed listening to all the dogs and cats around me in the shelter. I am VERY talkative and know how to project my voice so I can make sure you heard me! I am a spunky, independent cat who knows what I want and am sure to let you know. It can take me some time to really warm up to people and do best with people who are willing to understand how I communicate and let me explore things at my own pace. I LOVE wet food and go crazy for catnip! Unfortunately, my previous owner got me declawed. Like many cats, it really affected my positive attitude and I tend to be a bit on the feisty side because of it. Due to my strong personality I will need to be the only animal in the home. And even though they are cute I won't get along well with kids. A mature home where I can roam free and do my own thing would be ideal. I may have an interesting first impression but I deserve a loving home with the right family. Please meet me if you think you want to take me home!
