Story
My coworker rescued Sketchy and Shady from the middle of a highway. She brought them to work and I took them home at the end of the day. They have always been together and they get separation anxiety when apart. (MUST ADOPT TOGETHER) Both cats are neutered, and all shots up to date. They are litter box trained and only require one litter box. Sketchy is super playful and energetic. Where as Shady likes taking long cat naps, and being cuddled in the cradle baby position on his back. They are both very easy going and allow my toddler to play rough with them. They also get along with all other furry friends, but still like to keep their distance. The cats are healthy but… chubby. I will be so sad to see them go but I am not able to home them any longer.

Story
My lovely "Kitty" had a litter of kittens who we were able to find a home for. We are currently looking for a home for these boys as we can not keep them at our apartment anymore . Kitten is about 5/6 Months, non neutered/shots (couldn't afford) They are very active but are very loving when comfortable with someone! Would love to keep them together in a perfect world but understand they may be separated which is they should do okay with. Thank you!

Story
I adopted her as a kitten. She is 9 years old. She is on the smaller side. She is super sweet. Very curious. Very smart. She likes being outside during the day. Most of the time just lying in the sun by the door. She has a funny little subtle meow. Rarely makes a noise. She is very brave. She sleeps in the most random places. It's pretty hysterical. You will find her sleeping in random cabinets or even again a random wall, as seen in the of the photos. She tends to take the lead while her nervous brother follows behind. Drake is her brother. (featured in the photos) He is also posted on this site. She would love to be adopted with her brother. They love each other so much. Please help keep them together. I am having to move and cannot take them with me.

Whiskey was put up to be euthanized when I first discovered him I took him in so that wouldn’t happen but unfortunately can’t keep up with the costs of taking care of a cat but he’s a fun, very loving and cuddly cat! He’s super playful has lots of energy! Very good with other cats & loves children!

Male, black with white spot on chest. 6 month old, vaccinated, neutered microchipped. Good with all cats (I have 3 other cats at home) and OK with DOGS (I foster dogs, so he had to be), etc. Will be great in a home with another cat. He's a little food monster and purrs like a train. He's cute as a button and LOVES to play with the other cats. Rescued from Skid Row horrific produce disposal lot. Was super thin and has been indoors in my home for a some time now. after he had some time to gain weight and decompose he is ready for his FUREVER home.

Story
Fuku is a one-and-a-half-year-old shorthair cat. She is the daughter of my friend’s cat and has four sisters. Her personality is very outgoing and she is very affectionate with people, but because she has been away from her sisters for too long, she doesn’t get along as well with other cats. She is not picky about food, except she doesn’t really like shrimp. I am about to graduate and return to China, and my studies and work are so busy that I don’t have time to take good care of her. I really hope to find a new owner who likes outgoing little cats.

Do you love company in the bathroom? Like a snuggle buddy in bed? Enjoy the sound of zoomies? Are you a sharer - of your breakfast...lunch...dinner...snacks? Galifrey is the cat for you! My allergies have gotten much worse so I cannot enjoy all those things anymore. Galifrey is still very active for a 9 year old! She loves playing with her toys often and leaves her little mice for me in the places I frequent. So adorable! She will need time to get used to any other animals as she has been an only child for 7 years. She did spend 2 years with 3 other siblings. Toys, a carrier, 2 litter boxes, a pop up and food come with her. She needs a loving, attentive, thoughtful home.

Story
Shadow was a stray in our neighborhood who always ran up to me whenever I would leave my apartment and go to my car. She chose me, as the saying goes. The vet estimates her age to be between 7-9 months. Because she was a stray, she is in the process of getting all her shots. She still has a few more to get but is a happy and healthy kitten. Her favorite thing to do is to snuggle (yes, SNUGGLE!) up at bedtime and fall asleep on your arm. She is relatively calm, quiet, and curious. We would love to see her go to a warm and friendly home, with someone who loves spoiling her with love and attention.

Once an animal is in our care we vaccinate all rescues against disease & provide needed health care, fight pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering all rescues, and provide lifetime shelter and care to any rescued animal that is not adopted.

Story
Diana is a beautiful, silky soft kitten that although not 100% socialized, is easily approached & petted when eating, is docile when picked-up & held, ready to cuddle up & purr when napping with her human family =^..^= Not a "special needs" kitty, she does require a bit of patient TLC to finish her humanization, we have no doubt that when mature she'll be a totally "domesticated" furbaby... Calm, self-assured, 100% healthy & house-trained, Diana's a happy-go-lucky little girl that loves playing with her toys. This is a very special girl that makes everyone smile who meets her & is ready to bond with her furrever family that's ready to bond with her ♥
