Blazer is a 7 year old, sweet loving boy that loves to cuddle and is great with kids. We adopted him after his original owners unfortunately passed away. Sadly, we have to find him a new home due to new landlord policies. He is very healthy and active and likes to play.

Story
This is an extremely difficult task as I am very sadly looking to rehome my cat. I am not sure how he is around children, he has never been around them before but I assume he would be fine. Not declawed, Neutered, up to date on vaccinations, chipped. He is very cuddly, loves scratch posts, and great around dogs. He has lived with an adult black lab for 6 years. He uses a Leo’s loo self cleaning litter box that would included with bags as well as any miscellaneous items that are wanted. He is vocal, playful, loving, and expressive. I am looking to rehome him since my fiancé is allergic to cats and we are moving in together. He does have an issue with hard cat food and often would throw it up- so he has been on a soft food diet for about a year. Please reach out for any additional information!

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
This sweet girl was my daughters cat, she went to Cali to visit her ex boyfriend, and I was taking care of her while she was gone. My daughter never came back. The problem is I already had/have 2 cats. They didnt get along. It was really bad. Now everyone is segregated, my husband and I havent slept in the same room since. It has turned our lives upside down. I cant just take her somewhere that I dont feel good about. Its not her fault what happened to her, and I have known her since she was a kitten. I gotta find her a furever home. She is so sweet and loveable, she just needs to be the only cat in the home. I love this little cat, but as I already had/have my own cat babies, I cant keep her. Please, I need my life back and she deserves better than the way it is now. She would be perfect for a working person, 100% litter box trained and a 100% indoor cat. She is very affectionate and will wait outside the bathroom for you Awww! Thank you.

Story
Little Girl is an independent, low-maintenance cat. During the day she tends to keep to herself and find a nice quiet place to sleep. She is more apt to come hang out with you in the evening/night. She is litter box trained and pretty darn low-key. We need to rehome her because her owner passed away and we have cat allergies.

Story
This sweet, young stray appeared one night, begging to be let in the house. She didn't appear to have "street smarts" so we began feeding her. I have pet allergies, so couldn't let her in. I made a little hut for her out of boxes, put in a warm blanket and and placed it in our carport. This was about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I've called everywhere but haven't been able to find a good home for her. She's very affectionate and loves to be around people. She follows me all over the yard and sticks her little nose into everything I'm doing, and tries to sneak in the door every chance she gets. Sadly, she had a litter a couple days ago; all 7 kittens were stillborn. I feel badly because I couldn't bring her indoors and set up a proper birthing area. She looks and behaves normally now, showing no effects of her ordeal. She's on the small side, solid black with a tiny spot of white on her chest. Inquisitive, affectionate, playful (even lets you scratch her belly a little), good eater, calm (for a c

Ellie is a very vocal and sweet cat. She loves to play with paper and strings and will respond to you when you say her name or say hi. She's always been super active but will always love to cuddle up with you under a blanket when it's cold. She needs a good home to match her.

Story
Tee is a vocal sweet lovable cat. She will follow you here and there and lay next to you. She has a playful side where she loves to run and jump. She loves hard food specifically salmon flavor and loves to drink from running water but however will drink from regular water bowl. She also loves patios and outdoors. She is good with kids but does not like to be picked up by kids unless held properly. Lastly, she does have rabies shot too! Tee truly has such a great personality and I am looking for someone who will give her love, affection and that will truly care for her.
