Story
Hello, humans! My name is Keiko, and I'm here to share my story with you. You see, I'm not your typical cuddly, affectionate feline. Nope, I'm what some might call an independent spirit, packaged in the beautiful body of a tuxedo cat.    I've had a bit of a rough start in life, and it's left me a tad wary of people. Before I came to live with my foster parent, I had terrible dental disease, and I had to have all my teeth removed. I’m still a great eater, enjoying hard and soft food.  Being outdoors is off limits to me, as it’s not safe for me without my teeth to help protect me. Which doesn’t bother me at all, as I like being indoors.I love playing with my toys, but I don’t really enjoy playing with humans.  I like being in the same room with my foster, occasionally granting her permission to pet me, but I am not a lap kitty.  I do enjoy an occasional brushing on my belly, though. Deep down, I'm just a misunderstood kitty looking for a place to call home. I may not come running to greet you at the door with purrs and headbutts, but give me time, and you'll see there's a whole lot more to me than meets the eye. I’m searching for a patient, understanding cat lover who is willing to respect my independence, and love me anyway! I think I’ll thrive in a quiet, all adult home, where I’m the only non-human. If you think we might be right for each other, please contact PAW at cat-coordinator@paw-rescue.com ##1849327##

Story
Batman is a stunning black male cat, who was born in July 2022.  He came to us in the Summer of 2023 as a one year old, and he is now ready for his furr-ever home!! He has been living in a loving foster home since that time, which he shares with other cats and dogs.He loves being petted on his head, under his chin and he delights in ear scratches, but his back and belly are off limits!  This is a young fella' who knows his boundaries, and he will let you know too. He can be a lovable young gent, but he does not like getting overstimulated.Therefore, it’s  thought he will live his best life in an environment where he will be the only four legged creature.  A quiet all adult home without children is recommended, as he seems to enjoy a calm environment.He is up to date on all his veterinary care and vaccinations, and he is neutered.Are you ready to open your home to Batman and give him a chance?  If so, please contact PAW @ cat-coordinator@paw-rescue.org ##1849095##

Mirage is no illusion- she is the real deal! She was found as a stray and seemed to be struggling on the streets. Poor girl arrived here with a bit of an attitude but that is slowly melting away as she gets back on her paws and settled in. She so wants love and affection. Mirage would love a home with folks that can take things very slow with her. She would appreciate a mellow and kind place to get her purr back on. Can you help this very pretty girl find love and happiness please? Please visit this deserving miss soon.Check out Mirage's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5PsqNQrc6A

Story
I'm in a foster home! To adopt me, please email my foster parent at wbersbach@yahoo.com.Koy was disoriented and a little scared when he was brought into HRA. It might have felt like landing on a strange new planet, but like Clark Kent, he has found his super-powers while in foster care! Koy just needed a little time relaxing in his fortress of solitude (under my bed). When ready, he decided to explore his new environment and slowly sought out connection with human life forms. Koy now likes to follow his foster mom (the trustworthy Lois Lane) from room to room. He enjoys frequent petting & full body massages, curling up to nap in her lap whenever she's a couch potato, and sleeping ON her bed instead of under it. Like a Super Cat after shedding his Clark Kat image, Koy likes to play with wand toys, wrestle with catnip mice and crinkly kicking toys, and drag strings or ribbons while leaping downstairs in a single bound. Though Super Koy doesn't have x-ray vision, he also loves flying around chasing laser beams! With patience and respect for his timeline, Koy felt secure enough to show his loving, affectionate, cuddly, and fun-loving side. This wonderful guy is not out to save the world, but he is ready to take the next leap - finding his perfect match in a forever home. If you're interested in being in Koy's adventure, please email his foster caregiver Wendy, with any questions, or to set up a virtual meeting with Super Cat Koy! E-mail: wbersbach@yahoo.com

Story
** I am currently being housed at our Oglethorpe St location. Come meet me at 71 Oglethorpe St NW, every day between 12pm-7pm. Or visit humanerescuealliance.org/how-to-adopt to learn more. Mojo is an adorable chunky girl who loves to play -- she's crazy for wand toys! Mojo is looking for a dog-free home, please. She was afraid of the dog in her previous home and so just wasn't able to live her best life. She is very affectionate and will let you know when she's had enough petting. She gives excellent head butts and is just a curious, fun lady. Mojo would benefit from losing a few pounds, but with the proper diet and lots of play time, that shouldn't be a problem. This is a kitty who will thrive in a loving home. Maybe it's yours! Check out Mojo's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXlFkll4dcg

Story
Missy,or Chunk, or big Chungus is the sweetest girl. She loves head bunting, head pets, brushing, and laser toys. She was raised as an indoor cat only but loves window watching and talking to birds. She is talkative but won't wake you.She is mainly independent but I've noticed she'll follow you into the bathroom so you're trapped with petting her the whole time or your bed is her bed too. She'll lay on your chest and give the most therapeutic purrs. Update: Apologies to any of those interested while I was away due to surgery. I am reactivating Missy's account as a more suitable home is still needed. Unfortunately due to the living circumstances with an elderly mother with early Alzheimers I believe she needs a lot more care than she's getting now. If interested, please be loving and patient to her.Eats Friskies wet food seafood and chicken variety and Purina cat chow for indoor cats. I don't need a pet fee. Just want a loving home with someone experienced with cats.

Story
Cloud loooooooooooves attention and pets. He also loves butt spanks and pats. Anytime he sees a hand he just wants to be petted. He's a very affectionate cat but also very vocal and chatty. He enjoys laser toys and eating. As you can see he is a very chonky cat. Unfortunately his mother was diagnosed with early Alzheimers so she tends to over feed at times. I believe that he needs a loving home that is able to give him the attention and care that he deserves. I can't find any of his paper work at his parents home but he is fixed. He is playful with other cats and sociable. Eats Friskies wet food seafood and chicken variety and Purina cat chow for indoor cats. I don't need a pet fee. Just want him to have a loving home. Preferably with those that are experienced with owning cats.
