GOOD IN A LOW TO MEDIUM ACTIVITY HOME. GENTLE KIDS OKAY. A LITTLE NERVOUS, BUT SETTLES IN QUICKLY. NO DOGS! SEEMS OKAY WITH OTHER EASY GOING CATS.I love being out and about, and part of the family. I'm friendly and quick to make friends with new people. I'll be following you and rubbing on your legs and jumping up to sit with you, but once in a while I just like to sit quietly and not be pet very much. You might find me laying on a comfy bed on the floor, but most probably up on the furniture or perched in my cat tree watching you or out the window. I'm easy to play with and we'll have lots of fun with our wand toys. I have fun on my own playing in my tunnel with my little toys too! I'm a beautiful little boy with a pretty brown tummy and an awesome stripe all the way down my back to the tip of my fluffy tail! I have very soulful eyes that you can't help but love. Don't forget to give me a few yummy treats everyday too!

GENTLE, SILLY GIRL NEEDS A FAIRLY CALM HOME WITH LOTS OF LOVE, PETTING AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO BUILD CONFIDENCE. VERY SWEET KIDS OKAY, NO TODDLERS. GOOD WITH OTHER CATS AROUND. I only know how to be a sweet, darling little girl. I'm very easy to love, so please come find me and give me some sweet talk and gentle pets on my head! Once you do, I'll start to get comfortable and come out to visit. You'll see me start being very cute and silly as I'm so excited to get attention! I'm not very brave, but I do try very hard in small doses. I stay hidden under my blanket a lot when I'm alone, and it takes me a little while to get used to my new home. You'll see me start to come out a little more here and there as I explore, and try to find you! I've been loved, but not held very often, so let's do that a little several times every day so I learn to trust you holding me. I like to find places to play hide and seek, and I'm always so happy when you find me! I may feel more safe if you set me up with a blanket in a box (turned sideways) in a quiet corner in the main room, so I'm off to myself, but also with you. This might help me slowly get accustomed to everything. Pet me often so I know you love me! I'm such a sweetie that I will LOVE it and you every time! As I begin to get brave, let's gently begin playing with our wand toys. Play really helps build confidence, and after all, a silly young kitty like me should be having fun! I haven't been around dogs, but I'm used to friendly cats! I will enjoy having covered beds, soft blankets on the furniture, and a cat tree with a cubbie box in the middle to lay in. I also like getting a few yummy treats every day. With your help, I will quickly blossom into the sweetest kitty you ever saw, that even plays for you sometimes!

NEEDS A LESS NOISY, HECTIC ENVIRONMENT TO SHOW YOU ALL HER GREAT QUALITIES. GENTLE, RESPECTFUL KIDS OKAY. MUST BE ONLY PET UNLESS WITH YOUNGER BROTHER FREEDOM. I'm a little less than confident, so a lot of things will make me skittish and nervous. I'm not really all that shy though! Approach me slowly and pet me gently. As I settle in, you will quickly see how lovable and fun I will become. I love to sit up high so if you miss me, look up! The longer I know you, the more at ease I am to pick up and pet. Before long I will show you how much I love to cuddle with you, sitting in your lap and kneading on your chest. It probably won't be all of the time, as I like spend time on my own just sitting up high and watching everybody. Climbing shelves are perfect for me and I'll need at least one cat tree, the taller the better! I'll need soft blankets on furniture and beds for making my awesome biscuits! I enjoy playing with some wand toys, even when I'm sitting up high, so let's get to know each other by playing! I'll play more on my own. You'll love my cute facial expressions as I enjoy being talked to!

HAPPIEST IN A FAIRLY CALM ENVIRONMENT. WOULD BE IN HEAVEN WITH SOMEONE THAT IS HOME A LOT! GENTLE KIDS OKAY. CALM, QUIET DOGS OKAY TOO. PREFERS TO BE THE ONLY CAT.I'm the softest, gentlest, most lovable cat, probably in the world! I even have a very lovely voice that you will hear quite often. I love to be around people that treat me kindly! Most of the time I'm very easy to handle and always love to be pet. I especially love neck massages and back rubs! I'm happiest when people are around, and I would love not being alone very much. I should be an awesome lap cat! I am outgoing and will be spending time with everyone there, I'm not shy with new people either. I can be silly and playful once I get settled. So encourage me to play! The more attention I get, the quicker I will be comfortable there, that's the thing I love most! I'll enjoy having cardboard scratchers and toys. It will be fun to play with you and our wand toys too! I love beds and squishy blankets. Put them on the floor and on the furniture for me. I will enjoy having a cat tree very much because I like to sit low and up high too! I am a diva about cats, I don't like other cats around. But who needs other cats when you have ME, I'm wonderful!

Ash is a social butterfly that is ready to spread his wings in a foster home until he is ready for adoption. Reason for Foster: Awaiting Specialty Appointment. Foster Time Frame: 2-3 Weeks Foster Care Plan: Ash is awaiting a specialist appointment to determine if he needs surgery for his elevated third eyelid. He will have a medial consult at pickup and will need to return for his specialty appointment once the date/time is confirmed. We will provide all the supplies you need to take great care of this sweet boy. I am available through our Foster to Adopt program. This program helps pets awaiting or under medical treatment be placed in with prospective adopters before they are made available for adoption. If interested in fostering through our Foster to Adopt program, sign up to be a foster online and express your interest in Ash. We can schedule a pickup and meet and greet appointment. https://www.operationkindness.org/foster/

Story
Irving is looking for a loving foster home to stay in while he is recovering. Irving will do great with a foster that can shower him with love and attention. This little guy has not yet gotten the hand of eating on his own and will need your help with the transition. He is currently being bottle fed slurry. Reason for Foster: Underage/URI Foster Time Frame: 3 Weeks Foster Care Plan: Irving is currently undergoing treatment for an upper respiratory infection, which is like a common cold. There is a possibility that he is contagious to other animals, so we strongly recommend keeping him separated in a bedroom or bathroom away from your personal pets until he has fully recovered.
