Jay Short Hair Black and White Neutered Male Estimated Birthdate: 9/2/2014 Hi there, my name is Jay! I thought I had a great life outdoors until a good Samaritan rescued me. Now, food is always available here and there is no scrounging around for it anymore. And this invention called heat is amazing, no more facing the harsh elements. And I don't have to sleep with one eye open, if I want to, I can sleep all day and night with no worries. While I am acclimating to my new surroundings, I'm still a little scared and timid. I am affectionate, though, and like other cats. I hope you have a little patience and will give me a chance to be yours furever! Jay is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FeLV, and treated for parasites. He is FIV positive. His adoption fee is $125. Do you have room in your heart and home for this cute boy?

Frankie Short Hair Brown Tabby & White Neutered Male Estimated Birthdate: 1/5/2019 Hi, my name is Frankie. I was wandering around my neighborhood because my family didn't want me. Another kind neighbor left me food out everyday and finally took me in. She couldn't keep me, so a good Samaritan stepped in to foster me. I act more like a dog sometimes. I come when my name is called. I greet people at the door, I beg, and I follow my caregiver around a lot. But most of the time, I act like a cat, loving catnip, jumping into empty boxes, curious about everything, and watching the wildlife from my patio door. I'm loving life. Love, Frankie Frankie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and treated for parasites. His adoption fee is $125.

Firina & Buckwheat Firina ~ Short Hair Brown Tabby & White Spayed Female Buckwheat ~ Short Hair Brown Tabby Neutered Male Estimated Birthdate: 5/28/2010 Meet adorable seniors Firina and Buckwheat! Firina is a sweet, old lady who is very talkative she absolutely loves attention and will yell at you until you say hello. She loves playing with feather toys or relaxing on your lap. She can usually be found in the cat towers or watching the birds outside the windows. She is looking for a family that will be patient as she gets anxious with new environments and will take some extra time adjusting. Buckwheat is very talkative and loves attention he will paw at you if you stop petting him. He is looking for a family that will be patient with him as he gets anxious in new settings, so he may take extra time adjusting, but his medication helps a lot with this. Buckwheat can usually be found lounging in the cat towers or cuddled up in a bed. Firina and Buckwheat are a bonded pair and would love a home together. They would do best in a quieter home with older children and possibly a mellow dog with proper introductions. Both cats are fixed, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and treated for parasites. Their adoption fee is $200 as a pair.

Story
May Short Hair Black Spayed Female Estimated Birthdate: 7/16/2021 Meet beautiful May! This sweet feline was found living as a stray and when her rescuer (now foster) began providing food, it was discovered she was pregnant. In the first few weeks, she was quite confused, but with patience and love, her gentler, playful nature began to shine through. After successfully delivering and raising her kittens, she is now ready for her furever home. She is friendly on her own terms. She is a bit of a gentle nipper, especially when she is hungry, so we think she would do best with adults and older children that understand how to interact with her. She is playful and enjoys chasing after anything attached to the end of a string. She also loves to lay on cardboard. May's new family must understand cats and have the patience while earning her trust. She is a wonderful cat who deserves a loving home. We think she would be happiest being your only pet and the center of your attention. May is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and treated for parasites. Her adoption fee is $125. Do you have the purrfect home for this beautiful girl?

Story
** CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AS FOSTER TO ADOPT/ FOR ADOPTION- Arthur's cardiologist has recommended against neutering at this time; should this change, Tigerlily will cover the cost of neutering. ** Captain Arthur Hastings Short Haired White and Grey Male Estimated Date of Birth: Aug 22, 2023 Hi, everybody! I’m Arthur, and I’m the adorkable boy of your dreams! I came to Tigerlily with my mama and sisters after a nice person brought us inside and contacted animal control. I was just a wee boy then with my eyes barely open, so the comforts of inside and home life are all I’ve ever known. I’m a loud-purring, super-playful boy who loves toys and playing fetch! I will happily play fetch with a rattle mouse or catnip puff until I’m ready to nap. Since my mama and sisters were adopted, I’ve been spending time with my foster cat siblings, especially my foster uncle, who likes to cuddle and play with me. I definitely want a friendly cat companion in my forever home. I could live with older, cat-savvy human kids, but not little kids. I have a rare heart condition called endomyocardial fibrosis, along with other cardiac issues. I see a cardiologist and take medication twice a day, but I have no restrictions on my activity! I can play as much as I want to. My cardiologist says that I might have a shorter life than other cats, but nobody can know for sure (she knew a senior cat with my condition). I am determined to have the best life I can and to do as much as I can with whatever time I have. Life is good! I love to cuddle with my foster mama or just sit right by her while she works. I give kisses and purrs on command, and I soak up praise for my long legs and silky soft fur. I’m ready for a forever home that is as special and loving as I am! Are you my purrfect purrson? Love, Arthur Arthur's cardiologist has recommended against neutering at this time - should that change, the surgery will be covered by Tigerlily. He is vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and treated for parasites. His adoption fee is $125. Do you have room in your heart and home for this sweet boy?

Lola (with Georgie) Short Hair Orange & White Spayed Female Estimated Birthdate: 7/5/2023 Meet adorable Lola! She is very curious, sweet, and playful. She is very helpful with dishes by making sure the dishwasher is loaded correctly. She loves to play with string and hunt her toy mice. She is shy around new people, but a good head rub behind the ears will help put her at ease. Lola will nibble from time to time, so she would do best in a home with older children. Lola gets along very well with other cats with proper introductions. She would love to be adopted with sister and best friend, Georgie! Lola is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and treated for parasites. Her adoption fee as a pair with Georgie is $200.

Story
Absolutely wonderful cat. She loves to sit up on your shoulders and find various hiding placing in your home. Very talkative, loves to chat. Very skilled spider hunter, haven't seen one in my house since we got her. She's 3 years old this year, and still just a bit bigger than when we got her as a kitten. Super cuddly, will come up and sit in your lap for hours. She has this really weird thing, she likes her back pat gently, near the base of her tail. She goes crazy for it and when you pull your hand away, she'll meow and pull your hand back toward her. I trim her nails at home, she is very calm. Tolerates with other cats, can be a little mean to other cats and sometimes she does get a little jealous if they're getting all the attention. Doesn't mind my 2 big dogs at all, unless they're annoying her, in which she usually just hisses and runs away. Her favorite kind of toys are ones that allow her to hunt. We have a few hunting toys that we will give with her, She loves them.

Story
Boba is a sweet girl. When we rescued her the shelter estimated she was 3 years old which makes her about 6-7 years old now. She is okay being picked up but doesn’t like being carried around for long! She is not attention seeking unless you are running very late for mealtime. She avoids the dog and the baby for the most part. I’m worried that the baby will hurt her and she will lash out. The baby is constantly chasing the cats and dog and we have another baby on the way! Our home is pretty chaotic and I feel that Boba and her sister Miso don’t get the attention they deserve. We don’t know much about her history or why she lost her tail, but we call her Boba because she is round like a Tapioca ball! She is such a sweet baby and I’m sad that she and Miso are having such a hard time with my crazy toddler and the dog forcing them into hiding often. They like lazy days napping in the sun, petting, and treats. Boba and Miso don’t spend much time together so separate homes are an option.
