Story
Loki is looking for his home. He was born At CAPS safe house and is the only one of his siblings that hasn’t found his forever home. He’s so sweet. Just a little shy, he would thrive in a quieter home. Almost a year old as he was born April 27th 2023. Give him an early birthday present with a forever home!

Bryce is a loving purr machine! He may seem a little shy, but as soon as you walk up to him he will welcome pets and attention. His favorite spot to be is soaking up the sunshine in a windowsill. He may be a little shy as he adjusts to his new home, but he will welcome love from his next home with open paws.

Story
Meet Lucy! Lucy came to us when she was younger. She is estimated to be about 6 years old. She is a bit skittish and does best in quieter environments. She does well with other animals, but cuddling with her humans is not her favorite. She enjoys her independence and like to be able to do her own thing. She likes to hang around with everyone but likes her own space. Dinner time with wet food is her favorite.She would love to stop the search and finally find her forever home!

Saki is a shy cat, so it does take some time for her to accept someone into her circle of trust. But you will sometimes see her playful side come out. She enjoys quiet environments and comfy beds to relax in.

Story
I have two cats, that I would love to keep together if possible. If not I’ll have to do what I have to do, I can not keep them. THEY ARE INSIDE CATS. The eldest is 7, she’s fat and a very chill cat she stays to herself and doesn’t really bother anyone or thing. The youngest is 6 and a character, he’s a wild boy. He loves attention, likes to sprint around the room and terrorize his sister. They’re both up to date on all shots and healthy. I don’t know if they’d do okay with other cats. They would have to adjust. They’re okay with dogs, not so much kids. This is Kiki & Tom, and they’re looking for their next adventure.

Seeking adopters!!! Trying to find these sweet babies a home they are friendly. We guestimate that they are approximately 5-6 weeks old. I think one of the gray kittens is a male and one is a female. Not sure about the black kitten. They are very playful. They chase leaves and tackle each other on my porch. They seem healthy. Have not dewormed them, because they are so young, but I have dewormed momma. I will also get them all fixed and up to date one shots as well. Please help its getting cold outside. I have animals myself so I cant take them in. My name is Kristi Wade. I live in Burgaw. My phone number is 9102624182. Unfortunately, we are becoming attached. 🥴 But I want them to find GOOD homes. We named them “Bob” (gray), “Jasmine” (gray) and “Pumpkin” (black). We call the momma “Pookie.” My husband called her Spooky in the beginning, but I didn’t like that, so I modified her name. 😉

Story
🐾 **Meet Sweet Banana Bread, Your Potential New Furry Friend!** 🐾 We have an adorable and loving tabby girl named Banana Bread who is seeking a warm-hearted foster family or a caring rescue group. This little sweetheart is about 6-8 months old, a charming domestic short-haired tabby with a beautiful coat. Banana Bread's journey began in Ohio, where she braved the cold/snow by sharing a heated outdoor cat house with another cat after following him home. A kind family noticed her, and though they couldn't keep her, they gave her a temporary refuge from the winter elements for a few weeks while they awaited our arrival. We brought her to NC to offer a warmer, safer place. Initially a bit shy and 100% feral, Banana Bread has blossomed into a loving kitten who now enjoys human contact, playful moments with toys, and sometimes, cozy lap cuddles accompanied by her cute, high-pitched meows. We've been fostering her, but due to other furry commitments we already had, we're l
