Story
Maya is about 4-5 years old. She is VERY sweet, cuddly, and playful. I adopted her from her previous owner a few months ago, in Feb 2024. I adore her but I also have another cat and a dog (35lb labradoodle) and Maya does not get along with them... especially my other cat. She has shown some aggression (hissing, and sometimes scratching) BUT that's only been while living in my home, she didn't show any of those behaviors in her previous home (I can connect you to her previous owner if you'd like) so I think it's from the stress of living with my other animals. It breaks my heart to re-home her, but I don't think it's a good living situation for any of them. I think she would be the most perfectly sweet and fun pet in a home as an only kitty.

I love to jump, and hide, I am scaredy kitty when I hear a noise I do not like I will hiss, and continue playing!!!! Neuer - gray: I am the adventurer of the family.

Story
Ginkgo was born at the height of the COVID era in summer 2020. She was originally a “foster fail” because of how adorable and sweet and playful she was. She struggled with stomach sensitivity from kittenhood and had to change diets many times to find something that wouldn’t cause vomit or loose stools (eventually we settled on Hill’s z/d, but she would still throw up occasionally). I loved and cared for her for two years but eventually needed to rehome her because she developed a habit of biting me (and no one else) for attention, and when I became pregnant it was too risky to keep her around me, as I couldn’t keep taking antibiotics while pregnant (in the two years she had caused 4 bite-related infections that needed to be treated). I really struggled to give her up because she was so lovable aside from this problem, and I had tried every kind of intervention to change her behavior, with no success. Another family took her in for 1 year only and her behavior is now much improved.

Story
Chloe and Arya are very social and loving cats. I adopted these 2 sisters when they were 10 weeks old in December 2017. Chloe is more of a homebody and loves her dinner time. Arya is more adventurous and playful. They are both very sweet with humans. I used to have a dog and they were fine in the same space. They used to be in-door cats for the first 3 years but then became in-door/out-door cats for the past 3.
