Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.awesome family catSonoma is an affectionate, brave cat who loves to play and cuddle. She's been great with young children and adults but is slow to warm up to other cats (there is a picture of her with another cat that she has become friends with to show that she can). She likes exploring outside, but watch out - she can scale fences and trees in seconds. She comes when called and responds to "Sonoma" and "Baby." She is a picky eater, favoring dry food over wet food. My husband found Sonoma in our neighborhood while he was on a walk. She was instantly friendly and talkative but just wanted so much affection. When we decided to bring her inside, she was an instant lap cat! Sonoma is very happy to just sleep in a lap while you work. She would be an awesome cat for families with sweet children or anyone who wants a caring cat best friend. · Contact info: courtafa@gmail.com THIS animal listing is a COURTESY LISTING - not a 13th St Cat Rescue animal.

Chloe and Arya are very social and loving cats. I adopted these 2 sisters when they were 10 weeks old in December 2017. Chloe is more of a homebody and loves her dinner time. Arya is more adventurous and playful. They are both very sweet with humans. I used to have a dog and they were fine in the same space. They used to be in-door cats for the first 3 years but then became in-door/out-door cats for the past 3.

Hi, my name is Bowie! I’m a 9 year old all white cat with heterochromia! I was born deaf, but I don’t let that stop me from enjoying life. I am in need of a new home because I lost my dear grandpa last October, and my grandma has fallen ill and is no longer able to take care of me. I need a home with no other animals, but I am very friendly to humans and have interacted with many humans that have come to visit grandma and grandpa over the years. I hope you’ll consider giving me a chance!

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!
