Story
Black Cherry is as sweet as a cherry and is a little purring machine!  She loves to run, jump and play but loves a good snuggle when she’s done having fun. One of her favorite things is playing with her sister so a playmate would be great for her.  Cherry likes to climb and loves her cat tree. She also likes to chase a ball across the room or play with lots of different kinds of toys. Cherry likes to be picked up and is very vocal with her meows to tell you she’s ready for your attention. She will steal your heart with her playful ways and her loud purrs. She is super sweet!  Cherry is a great eater and is litter trained with both clumping and non-clumping litter. Requires another cat: kittens always do better with a friend! A bored kitten is naughty kitten.Good with other cats:  yesWould be fine with young kids (under 10):yesGood with dogs: yesHome activity level: Average to "bring on the ruckus"Health concerns or special needs: No We believe this kitten/cat was born around 12-23-2023.

Story
Precious, petite, purring perfection! That's Charlotte, a 4.5 pound 14-year old calico with beautiful, silky soft fur just right for gentle pets and ear rubs! Her little forehead is the best spot for kisses and her expressive eyes are a unique blend of amber and peridot. Her very favorite thing...once she's done walking around her space for inspection...is a soft, cozy blanket for napping. She loves her couch time and will happily allow you to share her space. She may even honor you with snuggles!If you don't see her on a blanket, the bathtub is her place of choice. She is very fond of water, and a dripping sink is the best entertainment. Charlotte is as easy to care for as she is to love. She is an independent girl who knows all of her indoor cat etiquette and conducts herself accordingly. In her foster home, she is continuing to come into her own and is beginning to seek out pets and crawl on her foster mom to nap or hang out as she gets more comfortable. She isn't bothered by typical house activity but does like her independence respected. She enjoys attention, but will let you know when she's had enough.

Story
Lilibet (or Lily if you please) is an adventurous, playful kitten. She loves to run after toys and will chase down every feather she can find. She’s great at keeping herself entertained with boxes and paper bags, but real cat toys are best! Lily is an independent little girl who doesn’t need your attention all of the time, but definitely wants to be around just in case she gets in the mood for a cuddle. Lilibet is an older kitten so she’s grown out of the crazy baby phase, she gives a good balance of wanting to play and wanting to relax. She has excellent litter box manners and gets along well with other kittens. She is cautious but curious around dogs and should do well if introduced properly. Requires another cat: would do best with another cat in the homeGood with other cats: YesWould be fine with young kids (under 10): Yes, given they are respectful and cat-savvyGood with dogs: Hasn't had much exposure to dogs, but should do fine with proper introductions Home activity level: averageHealth concerns or special needs: No We believe this kitten was born around 9-30-2023.

Are you looking to add some excitement and love to your home? Consider adopting your own tiny house panther, Wednesday! Wednesday is ready to hangout with you whether you’re working from home or chilling on the couch. Instead of scrolling on your phone, keep your hands busy while brushing Wednesday’s glossy coat. Don’t be fooled by her couch potato side, though - Wednesday is always ready to chase a string toy around with you! Wednesday is also an adventurous foodie who likes all types of food and treats. She is a well-mannered lady and has impeccable litter box manners. You won’t be able to resist Wednesday’s striking yellow eyes or her contagious purr. Wednesday is currently fostered with another adult cat who she gets along with, but we think she would also be happy being a single kitty. Requires another cat: No; we think Wednesday would be fine either being your only feline companion or would be happy with other catsGood with other cats: Yes with a proper introductionWould be fine with young kids (under 10): Yes (not fostered with kids but we think she would be fine)Good with dogs: Yes, not fostered with dogs but with proper introductions we think they would get alongHome activity level: AverageHealth concerns or special needs: none We believe this cat was born around 7/19/2021.

Story
If you’re looking for a cuddly, social kitten, Margo is the one for you! Margo fancies herself a shoulder-sitter, so you better be prepared to accommodate her needs. When she isn’t purring in your ear or on your lap, Margo is content just to hang out nearby. If you have a feather toy, that’s even better! Margo is still a kitten but she’s old enough where she isn’t constantly in play mode. She has excellent litter box manners and gets along well with other kittens. She is cautious but curious around dogs and should do well if introduced properly. Requires another cat: Margo would love to be adopted with her sister, Lilibet, but we think she'd adjust to life as an only cat as long as she has plenty of play and attention.Good with other cats: YesWould be fine with young kids (under 10): Yes, given they are respectful and cat-savvyGood with dogs: unknownHome activity level: averageHealth concerns or special needs: No We believe this kitten was born around 9-30-2023.

Story
Biscuit has been hard at work purring and kneading blankets for weeks. She is so good at it, they named biscuits after her. Biscuit came to Brave as a little kitten where she was adopted with her buddy, Gracie. They were unfortunately returned several months later due to their owner's persisting allergies. Biscuit is as sweet and silly as they come. The world is her jungle gym, and this curious girl will not be slowed down. She's confident and quickly settled into her foster home, befriending the resident cat and dog. A bored kitten is a naughty kitten, and Biscuit needs a friend to play with her and keep her company!  Requires another cat: kittens always do better with a friend!

Story
My name is Savanna. I am about 2yrs old. I came to the shelter in April of 23. I came running up to my Foster Dad as he was getting home and I was crying, you see I was very pregnant and wanted safety for my babies. Since then I have had the kittens and stayed with my Foster Mom & Dad. They have treated me like a queen. I am not a lap cat but I love to be petted and picked up. I love to play with toys just like the smaller kittens. I have a couple of bad habits some might say. I don’t get along with some of the cats at our Foster home. They get hissed at sometimes and swated at, in some occasions I have chased them but I have never hurt anyone. I think at times I want to play but the others are scared of me. I also don’t like to eat and drink with them. I have a cage set up that I go in to eat and to drink I like a trickle in the sink. Some would have called me a feral but I am not way like a feral. I have been altered and have all my shots (current). I am considered a calico and wait till you see my eyes.

Bockman came to the shelter scared, confused, and not feeling well. Turns out he had gotten into and ate some objects that aren't kitty friendly. He has had surgery to remove the foreign objects, and would now like to seduce you with his tummy spots!🥰 Bockman loves to climb and explore, he's especially fond of climbing as high as he can possibly go! He also loves to roll around and perform cartwheels and somersaults. Ain't no acrobat can do it like Bockman!🤸‍♂️ Bockman does have a serious side as well, which gives him a completely different, but handsome look! Who can resist those smoldering eyes? He also gets along with almost all of the shelter cats, and is very laid back and relaxed around them. He insists he is NOT a scaredy cat! Now that Bockman is feeling 110%, he would love the chance to settle in to a furever home. 🫶
