Story
Hi! I'm Ida, and I am very excited to meet you! I'm a sweet, gentle girl who loves to be pet, cuddled, and played with. I enjoy exploring and love to jump and climb! I am super playful, and could play with my favorite string toys all day long. Nothing makes me happier than quality time with my favorite humans. If you're looking for a buddy who will be a loyal, fun, and adorable companion, I'm your girl! Until recently, I spent my whole life within a laboratory cage being poked and prodded. I never got to enjoy a chin scratch or the experience of a lazy day of sleeping by a window. Now I'm finally free! After everything I've been through, it can take me a few days to warm up to a new environment-- but once I do, I will be the most fun and friendly cat you've ever met. The humans who have met me refer to me as a little ray of sunshine, and say I'm pretty clever, too! I would love to find a home where I can have my own bed to curl up in and cat tree to jump on. After all my time being locked away, I am ready for all the love and attention a family can give me. I get along with all kinds of humans and am friendly with dogs. I would be happiest in a home with no other cats. If you are interested in adopting Ida, please fill out an adoption application at https://bfp.org/rescue/ and email us with questions: adopt@bfp.org.

Hello new friends, I'm Claw-dette! And I'm the cuddliest kitty you'll ever meet. To me, there is no such thing as a stranger, as I love everyone I meet (human or animal) right away! I would be the perfect family cat, as I am gentle and full of endless amounts of love. I love to nuzzle my head against you, sit on your lap, and hang out together. I've never had toys before, but I think they're fun and am learning how to play for the first time in my life! I like to groom other cats and snuggle with them, so I'd love to go to a home with at least one other kitty sibling. Please take me home-- I promise to give you nuzzles, cuddles, and affection every single day. Until recently, I spent my whole life within a laboratory cage being poked and prodded.

Story
Hello everyone, I'm Opal. You wouldn't know by looking at me, but I spent my whole life within a laboratory cage. I never got to enjoy a chin scratch or a lazy day of sleeping in a cozy spot. Now I'm finally free! After all my time being locked away, I am ready for all the love and affection a family can give me. My foster family says I'm as friendly as can be! "Snuggling" is my middle name, and all I want to do is be pet. I love to knead and get SO excited when my favorite humans come to pet me. I'm a young gal who just wants to purr, purr, purr. Other cats are always welcome to be my friend, too. But I wouldn't mind being an only cat, either. Please take me home! I promise to make your days brighter.

Story
Meet Jameson. Jameson is a chunky, playful, cuddly boy. He just turned a year old this May (2024). Neutered in Marc24. Up to date on shots & flea/tick preventative. Jameson is an indoors-only cat. Definitely a typical orange cat-- rambunctious, but also clingy. (it's a good thing!) He loves to snuggle, be picked up. Playful boy loves his crinkle tube toys, and chasing balls/crinkle toys around the house. Good with kids, unknown with dogs and cats (I've never had him around either). He is my special, perfect boy. But.. Jameson requires an experienced cat parent. Jameson requires prescription food, and cannot eat anything else. If he does not eat Rx food, he will develop frequent, painful UTIs. I am partially disabled and can no longer afford his prescription food... and I do not want to put him through the pain of recurrent UTIs. I want to ensure he can go somewhere more financially stable than my home is, where he can get all the appropriate medical care and food. <3
