Story
JoJo is a friendly, calm approximately 13 year old cat. I got her 10 years ago when I was single and working 80hrs a week. She loves a calm environment and is very cuddly and friendly, loves sleeping with people and cuddling on the couch. Since I got her, I have recently moved, we have multiple kids and two dogs. She is not happy with this much chaos in the house and really needs a low key calm environment. She is not bad with the dogs but avoids them and I feel they stress her out. She is good with our children and is always gentle even with my babies but it is the same, the constant stimulation seems to stress her out. I feel she would thrive in a calmer environment.

Story
Thor is a special cat who requires a special owner. If you cherish your curtains, need silence, or collect glasswork-he isn't the guy for you. If you can laugh at his antics then Thor will keep you happy for a long time. He loves to chat and cause trouble. He's nosy and knocks things off of counters for fun. This sounds like a pain but I promise, Thor is endlessly entertaining. Few cats are as funny as he is. His crinkly ear and fat tummy make him too cute to be mad at for long. He's a special guy and if you can laugh at his mischief then you're the perfect place for him to call home. Due to his constant need for attention and his penchant for picking fights, he will likely do best as an only kitty!

Story
Louise is a very shy girl who isn't quite comfortable with being touched yet. But we believe that in the right home, she will eventually come out of her shell. She would definitely benefit from having a confident kitty companion to help her feel safe.

Ginger, like her namesake, can be a little spicy! She's a confident and affectionate girl who loves to be the center of attention. But she just can't help herself from giving the occasional swipe or nip!

Story
Hi, I'm Mulligan! I was so afraid when I first came into the shelter. But I'm quickly discovering how much I love to be petted and how much fun it is to play with toys! I love to mark you and lean into you with all my body weight...which incidentally happens to be a lot! I'm looking for a family who is willing to help me continue to blossom into the amazing kitty I know I can be!

A little bit 'Sassy' when rescued, we are happy to report that this beautiful girl is getting sweeter by the day. Curious, affectionate, and mustachioed, what more could you ask for? But true to her name, she has managed to keep a smidge of her sass!

Story
Rio is a one-year-old who is charming, confident, and affectionate. He loves belly rubs and will happily flop over for one. He is very cute, silly, and would love a home with people or cats to play with. He has lived in a home with a dog with no issue; he is a great age to adapt to his new situation. He was one of a found litter. He is bright, plays with puzzles, and trained to walk on a harness. He's very well adjusted, healthy, and with no behavior issues; only the current owner cannot support a second pet at this time.

Buddy has such a great personality he is a kitten trapped in a 10 yr old body, he has lived with many dogs and other cats but really hasn’t been around kids so don’t know about them but he is so sweet and loves to be around everyone.

Story
Oliver was fostered (bottle fed) with his two brothers Milo and Teddy 5 yrs ago We ended up keeping them (a foster fail!) However - Milo has been sick with urinary painful issues, and after all the testing, the veterinarian believes that Milo is stressed with other cats. He is on a very expensive prescription and prozac. Milo is doing a little better. But still has bouts (recently) on this plan - (bloody urine - poor guy) He is very attached to my husband. We are re-homing Oliver and Teddy (they do not have to go together). This will help Milo -and help us financially We have another older cat named Alvin - so this is a 4 cat home. (Alvin will stay as he is already very old) These boys are affectionate - especially Teddy! They both weigh about 12 - 14 pounds If They are not up to date on shots I will have that done before adoption. Indoor Only cats all their lives. They have never even tried to go outside.
