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

Story
I was given Nona 5 years ago from an old coworker who came across her mother as a stray. I picked her up when she was about 3-4 weeks old and brought her home. She's very affectionate, VERY cute, and will bond quickly. She's quite talkative, loves as many cheek scratches as you can tolerate giving her, and will always find your clothes to sleep on. Her classic "kitten" antics and adorable sleeping positions will be enjoyed. She has noticeable separation anxiety, and has become more persistently talkative and difficult to care for since I'm working most days and not home able to give her consistent care and attention. The family she needs is one with plenty of time and energy to provide a consistent, peaceful environment for her. It would be so wonderful to see her in a home where she can get the love and attention she wants and needs.

Story
I adopted Odysseus (Ody) from our family farm when he was 8 wks old (he turns 3yo in June). He's been a good companion for that time and is a good cat in general. Like most cats, he hides from guests for about a half hour before coming out to demand petting. He likes to be both indoors and outdoors. As a kitten, he was always outdoors or in the (large) equipment garage where there were many bugs and critters to hunt. Ody has been inside 95% of the time because I lived in an apartment or a townhome. He is litter trained and doesn't have accidents other than a hairball puke now and then. Unfortunately, Ody does not get along with other cats. My girlfriend moved in with her two older cats (13yo & 10yo) about a year ago and we have been unsuccessful at integrating the three of them. I like my cat and don't want to do this and have run out of things to try.

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. ;-) -- I'm hoping for a new owner who will keep Chonk forever, and care for him the way he deserves.

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. :-)

He need some proper care and he needs his kitty litter cleaned every other day or he will pee under the kitty litter, he doesn’t get along with male cats he gets along with dogs very well, absolutely no female cats he will try to attack and hump the female, he doesn’t like to be picked up very often, he hides away from new people, make sure you get him Nutered. But he’s very loving and he’s a sweet cat and loves attention and loves to sleep with his Humans, his age he’s 8 years old not sure what his birthday is though but overall he’s a cute cat and is very affectionate and happy cat, he can be grumpy at times though (Fair warning you he does meow in the morning for food around 6-7am and his feeding times at night is 7pm on the dot ) feed him every 2 days food in the morning and food at night. (Hope you like him 🧡).
