Story
I am fostering these two sweet brothers due to the sudden death of their human mom. They are very traumatized and I would keep them if I could, but I already have Kitty cats. The orange kitty, Simba is completely indoors. The darker colored kitty, Leoti likes to go outside a few hours a day but comes in at night. However, since their mom died, he has been strictly indoors and seems to be OK with that. Since they are brothers and have been together since birth, they need to stay together. They come with toys, litter box, food and scratching posts. If you or anyone you know can give these sweet kitties a permanent, loving home, please contact me.

Story
Lilac's a petite gray cat with a small white spot on her neck and a faintly stripey tail. She enjoys lounging in a sunny spot inside, venturing outside to lounge in fresh air, playing with wand toys, and pouncing on laser light. She will chew on plastic bags if they are left out, should not eat cat foods with beef as they make her throw up, and will meow loudly for breakfast early in the morning. She is affectionate and enjoys getting being petted on the face.

Story
Meet Ivy, a lovely almost 3-year-old American Shorthair cat looking for a new home. Ivy is a sweetheart who adores pets and cuddles. Once she gets to know you, she'll be your best friend. Despite being blind due to detached retinas, she navigates her world with confidence and grace. Ivy enjoys lounging and hanging out, making her a perfect companion for someone who appreciates a relaxed and affectionate pet. She's very food-driven and could benefit from a bit of a diet to get to her ideal weight. The reason we need to find Ivy a new home is due to her anxiety from our 6-month-old son's energy. Ivy deserves a peaceful environment where she can feel safe and loved. If you're looking for a friendly and loving cat, Ivy could be the perfect addition to your family. She deserves a wonderful home where she can thrive and be cherished. Thank you.

Story
You can’t help but adore this affectionate stray. Shy at first, she now confidently walks into the house, insists upon being pet, and has fun with clicker training. She travels with her own condo made from an insulated cooler, including entry tunnel, 3D printed rain awning, swinging PetsSafe door as a predator escape hatch, and straw base for warmth and comfort. Based on her tipped ear, she was spayed, vaccinated and released before landing on our doorstep. Right now, she prefers being outdoors, probably because that’s what she knows. When she first decided to venture inside, she would slink around and get agitated if we closed the door. We're now at a point where we can close the door while playing with her. We suspect she would adapt to an indoor-only environment. I am happy to answer questions, share additional photos and videos, and deliver to a good home!
