Story
Smokey is a rescue kitty from a kitten nursery. He was found underneath an abandoned couch in someone's alley. At the time of rescue he wasn't weened from mama kitty but was abandoned. He went to a kitten nursery where he grew, thrived and made friends with another kitten. I adopted both him and his new sister in September of 2020. In December of 2020 he ventured into the yard where he was attacked by a feral cat. He sustained an injury to his chest wall which required surgical draining due to infection. He physically recovered from the injury and has grown into a beautiful grey adult. However, due to the attack he seemed to develop PTSD and would no longer bond with the other two female cats in my home. Smokey wants to be an only cat in the house. When separated from my other cats he is lovable, playful, snugly an affectionate. He seems to see the other cats as taking love away from him. He needs a new home where he can be the king of his household. He wants solo love and affection.

Story
We are late in life and cannot care for her any longer . Nixy never meows or misses her litter box and stays inside always. She is not a cuddler but very easy to have around. She eats only dry food and a dry treat twice a day besides her dry food.

Story
___ "Chonk" is 7 years old and an indoor-only cat. He's laid back, and very affectionate. ___ He likes to sleep near you, just a little under the covers. ;-) He 'trills' at you to 'talk' to you, and sometimes to wake you up for attention. ;-) ___ He's the best snuggle buddy ever with a sweet temperament. ___ He will tolerate a dog that's not hyper and that will ignore him. ___ He has "issues" with vacuum cleaners & brooms - he hisses at them and will hide. ;-) ___ "Chonk" is fostered with me as a bonded pair with "Girly Girl" (profile also on this site); their owner has passed. ___ I'd love to see both "Chonk" and "GirlyGirl" go to the same home, but you can adopt just "Chonk" if you're interested. -- I'm also hoping for new owner(s) that are experienced with cats, and who will keep these two forever, and care for them the way they deserve.

Story
___ "Girly Girl" is 7 years old and an indoor-only cat. She's very affectionate once she gets to know you. ___ She isn’t a bed-sleeper, but likes to sleep in a cat cushion on a table. She'll be around you if you work from home, laying on the desk near you, and putting her head on your arm while looking up at you adoringly with her big beautiful eyes. ;-) --- She 'chirps' at you to 'talk' to you. And though she doesn't like to be picked up much, she'll need to be where you are. --- She doesn't like brooms or vacuum cleaners, and will hiss, run, and hide until the terror is over. :-) ___ " Girly Girl " is fostered with me as a bonded pair with "Chonk" (profile also on this site), and though I'd love to see them both go to the same home, but you can adopt just " Girly Girl " if you're interested.

Domino is a great cat; the perfect mix of attention seeking/purring, playful and aloof. We are trying to train him on a harness/leash, and he's comfortable in the car in his kennel, great at the vet. He does very well being left alone day/night; he knows how to entertain himself, but also loves being played with. He loves food and treats and wants to please. Domino deserves a home where he can roam and play, so we are trying to find him a good home. I think he would do well with adults and kids, and possibly a dog. He is very personable when meeting new humans and super sweet. I can't emphasize enough that he is a good cat, and I'm sad to have to adopt him out, but he deserves somewhere he can be more a part of a family. He came to us one day as a stray and literally walked into our home screaming to be fed. He was definitely a housecat before that. Unfortunately, he and my male cat do not get along, so I'm not sure how he would do with other cats. Otherwise, he's good for a new home.

Story
She’s a sweetheart, I found her 4 years ago in my old neighborhood and started putting food out and gave her a bed on my front porch. She would wander during the day and come back every night. I got her rabies shots early on but haven’t redone them. I moved and took her with me, eventually bringing her inside the house and she’s definitely a house cat now! Got her shots the first year or so and haven’t in a couple years now but she’s healthy and happy!

Story
Scotty and Diana have been hanging out in one of my grandmas spare rooms since we trapped them back in mid December. Due to unforeseen circumstances, they need to be out by the 1st of February!!! We need a long-term foster, and QUICK!! Have a spare bedroom for these easy keepers? Litter box trained, no spraying or marking and both are altered! Everything you need will be provided, food, litter, veterinary, EVERYTHING! They're both former ferals, so they take some time to warm up. My grandma is now able to pet Scotty Diana takes a little longer to warm up, but was rubbing against my Grandma's leg by the 3rd week! Home check required
