Story
Maxwell is a delightful mix of cuddly and playful. He loves playing by himself, or with other cats or his foster dad, using ribbon toys or mice or the elusive red laser dot. He enjoys conversations, and belly rubs, and cuddles.  We estimate he is about a year old. As a bonus, Maxwell is polydactyl, with an extra little toe on each front paw, between the equivalent of a human thumb and index finger. Since Maxwell was born this way, he is just fine with it and is as active and agile as any other cat. Although it does make him look like he is wearing big white mittens! This little boy loves interacting with other cats and people., and is friendly an outgoing and often very silly. Maxwell was rescued by his foster dad, from a colony where he had recently been abandoned. The colony is cared for every day, and one day Maxwell just appeared, crying for food and terrified of his surroundings. This cool little cat has bounced back from adversity in no time at all, showing just how resilient and smart he is. Pinks Paws for the Cause knows that little Maxwell will be a fantastic addition to his forever home, and that he will become an awesome companion. Maxwell is neutered and up to date on his vaccines.

Beautiful creature I have had pleasure to have in my life. She is shy and sweet. Very clean with herself. Excellent with the litterbox. Loves wet cat food. Would be good for indoor outdoor. Happy to sleep in a cozy spot in the garage. She would love to be adopted with one of her litter mates.

Story
18-year-old senior cat. She is really sweet and would love to be with someone who loves to give her loads of attention and petting. She will eat only dry food. She will let you know if she runs out of food or water by meowing. She likes to have wet food even as a treat. She will also let you know when her litter box gets too full by meowing. She is good with kids even being dressed up. She likes to be alone and not with other pets. She is happy to stay in the Catio-Shed. Alone, she is fine, but she does like your attention. She is very obedient to her training and does not go on the furniture unless you motion her to. She does not scratch the furniture. She is a very very good cat and has given us many years of joy. We got the dog and they don’t like each other so she spends too much time in the shed hiding. Wanting her to be able to, be on the patio and enjoy life in her final years. She prefers a quiet, calm environment and people.

Story
Paisley is an 11 year old “torbie” who is extremely affectionate and curious. While she gets along great with our dog, I recommend her to be the only pet in the home. The reason we’ve made the terribly difficult decision to try and rehome her is because we’ve recently had a baby and I had a very difficult delivery that has made it almost impossible to care for the baby, dog, and cat - let alone myself. She has behavioral issues of urinating outside the litter box and she has been on fluoxetine pills daily for anxiety since she was a kitten (she does well on these). It’s gotten worse since the baby arrived and I believe the behavior might change in a different environment. She is otherwise extremely affectionate and will cuddle when she wants some attention. She loves to lounge in the sun and loves to go outside on a leash but she’s not on flea medication because she’s been indoors her whole life. We have a little box and cat tree that she loves that we can also provide.
