Story
I tawt I taw a Puddy Tat....That's what you'll say when you look at me because my name is "Puddy".My markings are striking. I'm mostly white with a solid black tail and a little black on my head and nose. I have 2 big black spots on my back that form both a colon and semicolon when combined with my tail.I am sweet but quite shy and not outgoing at all. You can pet me but it has to be on my terms, usually if I'm eating or curled up in bed and you approach me quietly. If you scratch under my chin in just the right way, I will purr like crazy. But I'm not a snuggly lap kitty. I like to do my own thing.I don't really know how to play with cat toys and catnip does nothing for me. I'm not aggressive in any way.My foster mom has many cats that I have met through the baby gate on my room but I don't react to them at all. Honestly, I don't have any interest in them.My foster mom says I need a very low-stress home but I will probably do fine with other cats that are calm and won't chase me or be in my face.Do you have a super chill home where I can be myself without being pressured into being someone I'm not? I promise that my purring when you hit just the right spot under my chin will be worth it.My adoption fee is $100.00 and AARF wants me to tell you that their adoption package covers all expenses needed to prepare kitties like me for our forever homes. By the time you meet us, we've already been spayed/neutered (if age appropriate) and microchipped. We've been checked by a veterinarian, and we're up to date on age appropriate immunizations against rabies and FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia). Some of us have had extensive surgeries, dental work, or other necessary procedures. AARF is committed to getting all of us entirely ready for a happy, healthy, love-filled life!

Story
??Everyone poops??Dogs. Cats. Heck, we bet that even *YOU* poop (gasp!!!). So really, you won't be surprised when we tell you that Freedom here - he poops. At four years old, tiny Free Free has gone through a lot of shi...stuff. Found as a kitten with burrs covering his whole behind, he had difficulty using the litterbox before he was diagnosed with a rectal stricture (in scientific terms, his poop chute didn't operate properly). After months of surgical procedures, the stricture was resolved successfully! But Freedom isn't exactly "regular": he uses the litterbox, but inevitably he leaks a little. From the butt. ***Before we share more about this Lil' Turd's little turds, let's tell you a little bit about **him**, and why he's a delight and purrfect companion. No bull??.??Freedom is an affectionate, petite cat at only 5lb (fully grown!). ??He loves kissing people and snuggling with dogs (his purrrrfect home will have a dog to play with!). ??Fun with feather toys and other games, food, and chin scratches are all on the menu when you hang out with Free Free. ***So what kind of care does Freedom need? ??Despite his poopy problem, Freedom is well litterbox trained (he's never urinated outside the litterbox, and his major stools all go there without problem). ??From a care perspective, his Foster mom uses a quick wet wipe on him twice daily (along with a weekly bath which he takes like a champ!) to keep him cleaner than a Charmin Bear's bum. ??Freedom wears a diaper when he's wandering outside of his room - and let's be real, that's ADORABLE. ??He takes probiotics and special food to help manage his stool. Freedom also has asymptomatic Feline Coronavirus, which means he will need to be the only cat in the household, but does not currently require any care or treatment for the condition. ***We know it will take a special someone to adopt a cat with an anal anomaly. But Freedom is, ultimately, a perfect cat. He's playful, cuddly, and loves everyone - he's special in the truest sense of the word. As his Foster said, she'd be happy to have him live in her office with her forever, but he deserves a chance at a real home. And it's our job to help him find one.??Everyone poops?? BUTT... only one very special someone will get to take Freedom home. If you'd like to take me home, please fill out an adoption application at this website - http://www.animalalliesrescue.org/adoption-application - and choose me, Freedom!

Story
Hello. My name is Bia. You don't mind if I lie down on this soft cat bed while we're chatting, do you? I love combining my favorite things: in this case, a soft bed and a person who is paying attention to me. If I weren't a cat, I'd ask you to peel me a grape.Yes, I like luxury. Give me a water fountain to drink from and a licky mat to help me savor and not gulp my wet food and I'm happy. And a cat tree with a cubby for naps. But, don't worry about remembering all this. If people need prodding, I let them know. A "meow" or two always gets them back on track.I would prefer a forever home where I can be the only non-human animal, but I can tolerate a calm kitty or pup. My foster mom says I'm "mellow." Is a mellow cat who loves the love you have to give the cat you have been looking for? If so, please fill out an adoption application at this website-www.animalalliesrescue.org/adoption-application-and choose me, Bia! My adoption fee is $150 and AARF wants me to tell you that their adoption package covers all expenses needed to prepare kitties like me for our forever homes. By the time you meet me, I've already been spayed/neutered (if age appropriate) and microchipped. I've been checked by a veterinarian, and am up to date on age appropriate immunizations against rabies and FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus & panleukopenia).

Story
Hi! We're Rusty & Dusty, best friends (littermates), and very bonded! We are 5 years old and are very sweet. Dusty is a bit more social, Rusty is a bit more shy - but we balance each other out very well! We can both be a little timid at first, but it's only because we're afraid. Once we get to know you, we are very affectionate and would love to snuggle up and socialize with you. We prefer a calm and quiet home - we would be a great fit for an adults-only home. And we both love food - so treats (and patience) are a must for us!If you'd like to take me home, please fill out an adoption application at this website - http://www.animalalliesrescue.org/adoption-application and choose us - Ares and Achilles! Our combined adoption fee is $250 and includes all of my routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, FelV/FIV testing (kitties), deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip, boarding and transportation costs if applicable.

My name is Biscuit. Yes, I'm adorable, I know. I've been with AARF for most of my life. I love my foster family, but I know my forever family is out there somewhere.I do like attention from people. I'm slow to warm up and I won't come to you, but I can be held and I enjoy scratchies. What I really love is cats! Lots of cats. I don't like to be alone. I want a few kitty siblings to hang out with. I'm pretty mellow so no crazy kittens for me. I like to bat around toys and I only eat wet food. I'm really sweet. I promise. Someone just needs to give me a chance.

Story
Mervyn is super snuggly and wants to be with me all the time. He loves laying on my chest right now. He purrs, wants pets and wants to sleep with me. He also loves to play. The problem is that our resident cat is not at all accepting him and scares him. His reaction has been to pee spray shared areas. (We did a nice slow transition where he had a single room, then three connecting rooms, then full exploration after 3 weeks.) We have him shut in the connecting rooms where he feels safe and he is not pee marking in that space. I hate to keep him shut up like this, but we just can't have him peeing up the house - and potentially causing our existing cat to do the same. I think he would do fine in a home with no stressors like angry cats or loud kids.

Meet your new "Best Cat Friend Forever", Snowball! This very special, very social former community cat is in search of a forever home. He was being fed by a local caretaker who noticed him limping, unable to put any weight on his right forelimb. We had him treated at a local urgent care and he fully recovered in less than a month! Snowball is extremely energetic, curious, and smart. Great eater, food motivated, and a fast learner. This makes him easily trained. He's very attentive and respectful of his family and environment. He has no special needs, just love and cuddles! Once he warms up to you you'll have found your new "Best Cat Friend Forever"!

Hwello My name is Kendall, and I'm 3 years old. I'm cute, sweet, playful, and, let's not forget, talkative as well. I enjoy showing affection to my parent(s) once comfortable in my new home, and I also enjoy unlimited attention. I would rather be in a home with adults only, but if not, I can tolerate kids with you micromanaging. I only enjoy Purina Cat Chow Indoor Dry Food, Hairball + Healthy Weight, and lots of water to stay hydrated. My favorite snacks are greenies to clean my teeth twice a day and soft pate food for a treat every now and then. A quiet home with relaxation and peace is where I thrive the most, so please keep me safe and happy. Oh, and don't forget my toys. I love rolling jingle toys.

Wilbur is a very sweet 4 year old cat that responds to her name. Wilbur has spent time around children, she typically ignores them. She's not too great around dogs. Wilbur can be very timid and shy, but is very loving and vocal towards myself. Wilbur most likely would do better as an only cat or perhaps just 1 other companion.
