Story
2 yr old female - special needs - must be an only catMeet Puma! This adorable girl is a little timid when you first meet her, but once she warms up she is super sweet, and very playful.  Se is 2 years old.   She is special need and needs to be an only cat or in a household with other Feline Coronoa virus positive cats. She tested positive for Feline Coronavirus (the testing that was done to identify this virus is specific to feline enteric coronavirus and does not detect SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent for COVID-19. Feline enteric coronavirus is species-specific and does not infect humans) Although she tested positive at her re-check appointment, the virus should not affect her longevity or quality of life (she is no longer experiencing any clinical signs), however it is recommended that she go to a home with no other cats, with no intention of getting more cats in the home.   Coronavirus is mostly common as a kitten virus,  and according to the vet most kittens by 9 months - 1 year test negative. However, for some reason Puma has not out grown it.  We just had her test in July 2022 and she is still positive.  We have not seen her around dogs or kids so unsure how she would do with those.  This animal is current on all age appropriate vaccines, dewormed, and spayed/neutered. They have been FIV/LeLV tested (negative), microchipped, and on flea prevention.  The adoption fee is $50.00 If you are interested in adopting this pet please fill out an application at ajssearchandrescue.orgJuly 15, 2024, 8:26 am

Please contact Dee (Dee@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet.  *Please read bio in its entirety prior to contacting the foster. The first step in our process  for any animal you are interested in, is to fill out an application. For more information not listed in the bio, please email Dee at Dee@PawsandPrayers.org* Karen is a very independent girl that loves to watch your every move. She has been with us for about 2 1/2 years now, and she is still learning to trust humans. Karen is very curious, and she loves to figure things out on her own. She previously lived on the streets, and she is extremely cautious about making new human friends, but loves to be pet when she finally lets you! Karen loves other cats, and she would do best in a home where she can have a friend of her own size to help her feel confident and safe. She has a sensitive tummy, and requires a grain free diet.  Karen is about 6 years old, litter box trained, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, spayed, dewormed, and combo tested. Her adoption fee is $125.  This pet qualifies for the Pets for Patriots program. Copy and paste this link for more information. https://www.petsforpatriots.org/veterans/ July 15, 2024, 8:30 am

Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Meet Matcha! Matcha is a special girl who needs a home she can reside in, and not necessarily receive attention. Matcha loves the companionship of other cats, but could give or take humans. She is not aggressive, just shy and not fond of human touch. She has a sensitive tummy and requires a gentle formula food (not prescription). She is about 1 year old. Her adoption fee is $125.   Paws and Prayers Cats are spay/neuter, fully vaccinated, FIV/FeLV tested (neg), dewormed, current on flea/tick prevention, and microchipped at the time of adoption. They are litterbox trained unless otherwise noted. Please be aware we do not walk around standing & holding our shelter cats - this is unnatural to them and we like to keep them as comfortable as possible.  Please read the entire bio before emailing the foster with questions.    Meet and greets are not arranged unless an adoption application is filled out and approved and are by appointment only. July 15, 2024, 8:30 am

When he first came to Paws and Prayers he was not a happy camper but once settled in, he’s blossomed into a sweet boy! He absolutely loves the company of other cats, and tends to take kittens under his wing and play with them all the time!  He does get overstimulated with play and petting with humans, so a home with no kids would be best. Stache’s adoption fee is $125.July 15, 2024, 8:30 am

Story
Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Alex can come off as a little bit of a sour patch kid at first, but will show you that she is really sweet as pie. She likes attention on her terms but let’s you know when she’s had enough. She gets along with other cats, but would be content in a home on her own. She is very petite and does the cutest squeaks. She is about 5-6 years old. She has a deformed eye but it has been checked by a vet and doesn’t bother her or cause issues, it just waters from time to time. Alex also seems a little hard of hearing but that does not effect her either. She is a great girl who’s ready to find a home! Her adoption fee is $125.   Paws and Prayers Cats are spay/neuter, fully vaccinated, FIV/FeLV tested (neg), dewormed, current on flea/tick prevention, and microchipped at the time of adoption.

The first step in our process  for any animal you are interested in, is to fill out an application. For more information not listed in the bio, please email Dee at Dee@PawsandPrayers.org* Santana is trying hard to learn to trust humans, and she is very watchful as she learns as much as she can about you before she makes her move. She has been with us about a year and a half now, and has made so much progress! We have found that at feeding time seems to be the best time to pet her and show her love. She enjoys affection, but she does not yet actively seek it out on her own unless she feels comfortable with you. She is looking for a special person that will offer her patience as she gets comfortable in her new environment. She loves the company of other cats, and would do best with a kitty companion in her new home.   She is about two 1/2 years old, litter box trained, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, spayed, dewormed, and combo tested.

He enjoys other cats, but could also live in a home by himself. Zevyn has a very sensitive tummy, and must be on a grain free diet to avoid IBS flare ups. He also does best when kept on a probiotic.

Luna ran into my house on a cold winter morning. She was immediately friendly and was fine with the dog. She has loads of energy but still likes to cuddle. I’ve tried to find her a home but haven’t been successful. I need to re-home Luna because I can’t afford to pay any vet bills and the dog hasn’t adjusted to sharing her space. I’m also not permitted to have cats per my lease. Thank you for your help.

Story
I live in a two-bedroom apartment, my roommate moved out and left Simon with me because he and my cat Bo got along. Simon is picky when it comes to litter that's why I have house-trained marked unknown. I have never seen how he is with children because I live alone. He needs someone who is patient with him. I can't keep him because I'm only allowed to have one cat he is not fixed He is timid so wait until he comes to you. if you have trouble locating him check under beds or chairs, he likes tuna so get a can then tap the lid to lure him out. If fed human food it has to be in very small pieces, he has trouble eating anything too big or he just paws at it and then leaves it alone. he is a friendly cat but he has his issue is going to the litter box (if it's the wrong kind) I recommend getting Hammerhead cat litter for him. He does not like fresh step.
