Story
Ruby was a pregnant stray that my kids and I found in our neighborhood, and was so sweet that we decided to take her in a couple weeks ago after a visit to the vet. We have kept her in the basement to slowly acclimate her to the environment and our existing cat. She now has has five newborn kittens, and ever since she gave birth has been much more aggressive and territorial, bolting up the stairs and getting into fights with our other cat, and she even bit me today when I tried to redirect her away from the basement door so I could go upstairs. I believe she would be a much better fit in a home where she has full access to the house and a calmer environment to raise her babies. I am hoping to get her rehomed ASAP.

Story
Honeybee is a very sweet girl who was rescued from living on the street by a Good Samaritan. She is dog friendly and likes to play, and very used to being around large dogs. She is FIV+. FIV is typically transmitted through deep bite wounds and mating (she is now spayed). She currently has no health issues relating to this diagnosis. She is approximately 2 years old and has a $100 adoption fee -- her adoption fee is partially sponsored, and is now just $50. All cats adopted through our rescue are vaccinated, combo tested (negative unless otherwise noted), microchipped and spayed/neutered before adoptions are finalized. If you would like to adopt, please fill out the application through the link or the website at -www.whiskersofohio.org - please note that the "I'm interested" tab does NOT act as an application, this should only be used for specific questions before committing to an adoption.

Story
Sweet Figgy was found near Columbus, a friendly stray, and found her way to our rescue for help finding a forever home. She is a torbie girl (tabby+some orange coloring) and just a little shy at first but definitely warms up quickly once comfortable -- she is the ultimate lap cat, all purrs and sweetness. Loves nothing more than a lap and some love:) She has been around other cats and dogs without issue but acclimation is always recommended for long term homes. She is playful and fun, and can't wait to have a home of her own! She is estimated to be 1-2 years old, and has a $100 adoption fee. All cats adopted through our rescue are age appropriately vaccinated including rabies & FVRCP/Feline Leukemia vaccines, dewormed & free of fleas, combo tested (negative unless otherwise noted), microchipped and spayed/neutered before adoptions are finalized.
