Story
Meet Saint, a 5-year-old, male Domestic Short Hair cat with a gentle soul, looking for a fresh start. He has soft fur with black striped accents and eyes full of love. Known for his affectionate nature, Saint has been a cherished companion, offering comfort and joy over the last 5 years. Unfortunately, due to changes in our circumstances leading to his separation anxiety and behavioral challenges leading him to not use his litter box, we seek a new, loving home for him. Ideal candidates are patient, often home, and preferably without other pets, offering Saint the constant care he requires. We'll provide his medical history, belongings, and support for a smooth transition. If you're ready to give Saint a caring environment, let's discuss his adoption.

Story
Felix was born near an Amazon facility. He and his sister were wondering the trailer yard a few days before they were caught and cared for. They were a month old. Felix is now 10 months old and still playful as ever. When it’s dinner time, he so excited and growls as he eats. He’s a cuddler but only for a little while until he’s meowing to get out.

Story
Gracie is a snuggler and a very loving companion, but she needs a home where she is the only cat. She was separated from her sister before we adopted her and has been reluctant to make friends with any other kitties for years since, to the point where she becomes reclusive and hides away until she can be alone with her humans. This has made it harder for her to enjoy life with our two other cats. We love Gracie but want her to feel secure with a loving family she can call her own.

Story
One rainy evening, a tiny kitten appeared on our doorstep, trembling and soaked. We named her Shade for her beautiful black fur. Over the past six months, she grew from a timid soul into a vibrant companion. We have already taken in two beautiful cats and cannot continue to keep her. Despite our love, we know she belongs elsewhere. With a heavy heart, we are looking for a forever home, knowing her resilience can light up another home, just as it had ours.
