Story
I am moving to live with my son in Utah for health and financial reasons. I I actually have 2 kitties in need of rehoming. Maven and Angel. My granddaughter rescued them from a shelter when they were kittens. I rescued them from her when she had to move out of town and was going to take them back to the shelter. I now find myself in the same situation as I need to move for both health and financial reasons. Maven is a beautiful black little girl with a small amount of white on her tummy. She loves to curl up by you on the couch, chair or bed. I have an extra large litter box and a nice cat tree for both of them. Hopefully they will be adopted together because they have been together since they were babies. My granddaughter did not have her spayed for some reason and I have not been able to afford having it done for her.

Story
I actually have 2 kitties that need to be rehomed. They are a beautiful pair. Angel and Maven. My granddaughter rescued them together from a shelter when they were kittens. I rescued them from her when she had to move out of town and was going to take them back to a shelter. I find myself in the same situation as I am moving to Utah to live with my son for health and financial reasons. I am in poor health and cannot afford to keep them.. They have always been indoor kitties. They have an extra large cat box and a nice cat tree. I love them both very much and am saddened to see them go. I know Angel has been neutered, he is the white cat. He is strikingly handsome and great company. As far as I know Maven the black cat has not been spayed. For some reason my granddaughter did not have this done for her and I have not been able to afford it. She is beautiful and is a wonderful companion.

Story
Me and my daughter rescued kittens outside of my apartment in May. I was approved for 1 cat but they do not know about the other kittens and when we are found out I will be forced to find a place for them in 3 days and be in a lot of trouble with my apartment company. I need to find a very loving very kind and very safe home for these 2 brothers. We love them very much and wish we could keep them. They are very special and deserve kind and gentle cat parents.I can give more information and more pictures from the time that we have raised them. Please message me for more info.

Rescued him and his siblings as kittens. Wanted to find homes for them right away but they needed medicine and then they ended up staying with me longer. Big Orange is very sweet and has almost become a cuddler. I can give more information on his personality and favorites and give a lot more pictures. I am not able to have them at my apartment and I might need to find a home and family for him and his brother Little Orange fast. They are a bonded pair and need to stay together. Me and my daughter love them so very much, they have been raised in a very loving gentle safe environment and that is what I am hoping for them to have in a new home
