Story
This is Diesel. She turned 2 years old in February (Aquarius queen!). She needs to be in a calm home with no other pets or children. She's very independent and enjoys time sunbathing. She may need time to adjust to her new home, but once she does she is a playful and goofy girl.

Story
Marsho Lean ran away from his last home as a kitten and showed up at my front door starving and covered in fleas. I thought he was a street cat until the vet told me he had been neutered already... (This was in 2020.) He was very young at that time, I will never know exactly how old he is but right now he's about 4 maybe 5. Honestly he has been the sweetest little boy. He loves to eat delicious food and snuggle. He gets along well with every living creature even though he sometimes shows anxiety around new cats. He's lived with chihuahas, huskys, and 3 other boy cats, he just protects his personal bubble. He has a very sweet meow almost like he's trying to imitate a kitten, and loves to play with toys especially on a bit of catnip. I love him to death and would even love to take him back once my situation changes...

Story
She’s such a sweet girl and I’m so sad to let her go. She’s about 3 years ago and an absolute love bug. When I moved recently she’s not taking it well and I think she will be happier with a family that can give her more attention.
