Story
Ramona Hello everyone, my name is Ramona, let me tell you a little about myself. Now, I don't mind having some hang-out time with a girlfriend once in a while, a girl needs some girl talk and all. But honestly, what I really love is having a handsome man give me a good chin scratch, head pet, or brushing. Girl, don't get me started on how amazing it feels to curl up in your man's lap and have him brush you for as long as you want! What can I say, I'm a sucker for a man. I'd rather be roomies with a guy than another girl if I am being honest here. I'm also not willing to share my man with other cats, but can you blame a girl? Who would share their man? I have met a few dogs and they are okay as long as they leave me alone. Also, not to sound like a diva, but I do need two litter boxes because I don't like having to go #2 where I already went #1. I honestly don't know how you humans do it. I will admit, I'm a senior cat and I do have times where I may miss the box but these lovely puppy pee pads catch what the box doesn't, plus I love the blue color (makes my eyes pop). This aging beauty must also admit I do have some arthritis in my hips, I can't swing dance like I used to. I may need pain medication as I get older, and more beautiful, but that is a bridge to cross later. I do prefer though, since my hips hurt, that my man not touch my back. I'm not into back massages or pets, it just doesn't feel good. Sadly, I was found by this lovely organization as a stray and I cannot tell them just how old I am, language barrier and a lady never reveals her age anyway. We just age like fine wine......whatever that is. But this little lady still has many more years to live, her sass and her class. I would love to find a kindhearted, patient gentleman to take me home and give me the life I need. So, won't you come be my knight in shining armor and adopt me? If you have any questions please email info@sheltertohome.com for an application. Adoption fee is $50**All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter. All animals will be spayed or neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV or heartworm, given age-appropriate boosters and rabies, dewormed, flea treated, and anything extra that is needed to give this animal a wonderful forever life in a permanent home. Adoption fees are usually $50 for cats and between $150-$250 for dogs, unless the pet is sponsored or we are running a promotion.

Story
What can I say I'm a beautiful sleek silky black Diva. I'm hoping to find a furever home with a kitten or cat buddy. I love all my foster friends. I even live among dogs. I'm looking for a special family. I am very shy. My foster mom keeps saying I've come a long way. I was a very frightened kitten when she took me in. It took me several months to warm up to her. I still don't like being picked up but I do like my scratches and lots of petting. I would need a room to hang out in until I got adjusted to my new digs. I love my treats and my laser toy. Hope to meet you soon!**All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter.

Story
My name is John. I was born in October, 2021. I am a handsome gray dude. My foster mom's say I have come a long way. My sister and I take turns staying at each of our two-foster mom's homes. That is so we can get use to different surroundings. I used to be growly and hissy. I am still on the shy side. I would do best in a quiet home, a house without kids. I need someone who has patience in wanting me to interact. It might take a little time for me to feel comfortable and hang out with you. I get along with my foster kitties of all ages. I would love it if I could be adopted with my sister (Astrid). We understand each other. My sister (Astrid) and I have so much fun together. We love to bird watch and to catch flies. We like to play with everything, even with stuff we are not supposed to play with (lol). If you are in the kitchen or eating something while you are watching tv, we will meow at you. (That is telling you we want a bite to eat.) We are both easy to take care of.**All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter.

My name is Astrid. I was born in October, 2021. I have a unique coat color. I am a quiet and shy girl but very active. My foster moms said I have come a long way. My brother and I take turns staying at each of our two-foster mom's homes. That is so we can get used to different surroundings. I used to be growly and hissy. I am still timid, and on the shy side. I would do best with a quiet home, a house without kids. I need someone who has patience in wanting me to interact. It might take a little time for me to feel comfortable and hang out with you. I have been with other fosters kitties of all ages, but I was not nice to most of them. It would be great if I were adopted with my brother (John). We are so much alike. We have fun together. We like to play with our toys, and almost everything else(lol). We love to sit in the windows to bird watch and get crazy trying to catch a fly.

Story
Ivy approximate birthdate July 2017. Ok with cats and dogs... About me... People always talk about new year, new you right? Well I say how about adding on a new companion to that new you groove? The last few years have been stressful, so why not start your morning with a nice relaxing cup of coffee with me perched in your lap. I can make you feel even more relaxed while you give me a morning facial. I relax you, you relax me. You get a great start to your day, do your thing nd conquer your goals. Then at the end of the day we unwind on the couch, I can get another facial while we watch one of those romance movies or something like that. Well, okay you can really watch it, I'll just enjoy your attention. You see, I can't that well. And while I do have partial vision in my eyes, my specialist person said that my eyes will never be able to be fixed. Kinda sad huh? Makes me wanna tear up, which I do....a lot. My eyes tear a lot, and make my fur stained, so my eyes have to be wiped and cleaned on a regular basis. Hence my request for some facials. But I'm a grateful girl and am very good about you wiping my eyes, I really do appreciate it. And these tears don't stop me from wanting to play with you, be goofy, and bond with you! Nothing will stop me from being your new best friend and helping you feel like a new you as you help me feel like a new me! Sound like the kind of days you are looking for, give the rescue I'm staying at a ring and ask about me, Ivy! **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age.
