Story
Valerie is 2 - 3 years old; we are not sure. She was found outside in a cat colony where a rescue group was feeding. But Valerie was very tame and affectionate. Her foster family describes her as the sweetest, most loving cat. She loves to be picked up and rubs her head against your neck. She is living with other cats in her foster home and would probably prefer a more calm environment. She wants all of the attention from her humans. She did test positive for feline FIV but negative for leukemia. She can live as long as cats which do not have the disease (please check online), cannot spread to to other pets unless there is a deep bite (not spread through grooming, sharing food, water or litter boxes) and cannot spread to humans.

Story
Butterscotch is a big orange male cat who was found as a stray. A local homeowner was feeding him but he was looking ragged. So he went to the vet and was treated for an upper respiratory condition. He has also been neutered and received his vaccines. He is a playful and sweet boy (like most orange male cats) and is enjoying feeling better and eating regularly. He would love to be your indoor cat. The homeowner would keep him but his other cat is very territorial and doesn't want a housemate.

Story
GiGi is approximately 3 years old and weighs about 12 lbs. She does well with dogs and other cats. She loves to be petted and will sleep with her foster family if allowed to. She doesn't like to be picked up but will sit on the couch with you and allow you to pet her for hours. She would fit into any household if it is not too rowdy. Her eyes are either green or golden depending upon the light. She is not spayed yet, but has an appointment.

Story
Timothy was a stray and was not in good shape when he was rescued. Now he is inside and loves it. He has eaten himself to a healthy weight of 7.5 lbs and has all of his vet services. He is very affectionate with his foster family. He loves to snuggle up and get petted around his head and ears. He shows you how happy he is by head-butting your hand. He rides well in a carrier, never misses his litter box, is not bothered by other cats. He will be a wonderful pet for any family. He is estimated to be a little over 2 years old.

Story
Introducing Jelly and Toast, the 6 month old dynamic duo who are the epitome of brotherly love! These inseparable siblings are always by each other's side, whether they're lounging in a cozy spot or embarking on a playful adventure. They are experts at relaxation, but when it's playtime, they are full of energy and enthusiasm. Like most cats, they might need a little time to adjust to a new environment. They get along well with other cats. They can be adopted together or separately, but will never be bored or lonely if they can stay together. Two kittens is always better than one, and not much more responsibility. For more information or an adoption application, contact Nancy Foltz at 704-616-4904 or NEFoltz@Yahoo.com

Story
Bootz was born to a beautiful calico mother (see Sabrina, also posted for adoption) who was an outside cat and came inside to have her 5 kittens. Three have been adopted, leaving Bootz and her sibling Sox. These kittens are now eating on their own, using the litter box, and ready to find their forever home. They are too young for most vet services yet, but the adoption fee covers spay, vaccines and microchip in the future (probably mid July). Add some fun to your summer with one or two new kittens to keep your family entertained. Contact Nancy Foltz at 704-616-4904 or NEFoltz@Yahoo.com for more information and/or an adoption application.

Story
Adoption fee can be negotiated. Trouble and Rue come from the same litter and I am trying my best to keep them together. I don't have the funds to take care of them at the time but they are both very sweet and loving. They might take some time to warm up to you as many animals do. They are a little over a year old and still very playful when they choose to be. Rue has some balding around her tail currently but we aren't sure what from. Also despite Troubles name she really doesn't cause any trouble. They both deserve to go to a loving home with someone who has plenty of time and money for them.
