Story
Meet Cola, a 4 year old tortie house cat who is an excellent companion. Cola is an extremely sweet and affectionate cat who thrives on human companionship. She loves curling up by a sunny window for naps or sitting in a lap. Cola is curious but reserved, exploring her surroundings at her own pace. Coming from a loving family, Cola appreciates and trusts people, offering her affections freely to those who show her kindness. While she adores human company, she tolerates calm dogs but avoids other cats and more energetic pets. Cola uses a self cleaning litter box, an auto feeder, and water fountain. We will happily provide these to a new family. If you are looking for a gentle and loving feline friend, Cola is the perfect match. Come meet Cola and let her sweet disposition charm her way into your heart!

Story
Onca (pronounced "on-suh," scientific name of jaguar) is 2.5 years old, and is one of the purriest, cuddliest, and most playful kitties I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is a ball of energy and the opposite of a timid cat - he will jump into strangers laps right away, and takes every chance he gets to play! To this end, Onca is the type of cat that requires a lot of attention and a stimulating environment because he seems to sleep and "chill" far less than your average cat. Essentially every person in my life that has met him has been obsessed with him -- he is objectively very cute, funny, and interesting to be around. Unfortunately my life circumstances have led me to determine rehoming him to a forever home that is stimulating (ideally a multiperson family) and stable (ideally not moving around, at least regularly) is going to provide him a quality of life that I (a young professional who lives alone and has to travel for work often) can't provide.

Story
Allow me to introduce you to Topsy. Topsy is a delightful feline with a unique personality and a strong need for attention and affection. This adorable cat craves human interaction and thrives in an environment where they can receive ample love and care. She has a playful nature but above all she loves to cuddle with any human! She has spent the last 9 years in a two cat home- sadly, my other cat passed away in December and Topsy is struggling to adapt to being alone for most of the day while I work. When she was younger there was always someone working from home or the other cat around to keep her company. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide the level of attention and care that this cat truly deserves. It breaks my heart to part ways with Topsy, but I believe it is best for her and I want to ensure that she finds a new home where she will be showered with love and attention. She is truly a wonderful companion for someone who can dedicate time and attention. Litterbox trained

Story
Tulip is a 4-year-old American Shorthaired B&W Tuxedo cat, adopted as a kitten from Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue at the start of the pandemic. She's an indoor cat who has brought joy and comfort to my small apartment with her loving, playful, and mischievous personality. Tulip is an affectionate companion who enjoys snuggling by your laptop while you work and sleeping next to you at night if you allow it. Although she takes a bit of time to warm up to strangers, she eventually does and becomes a loyal friend. She's also comfortable around my pre-teen kids. Tulip is more of a shoulder cat than a lap cat—she loves riding on your shoulders and nuzzling your face. She's always delighted to see you, even if you've only been gone for 15 minutes, and will eagerly seek out snuggles upon your return. Tulip is looking for a loving home where she can continue to bring happiness and companionship. If you're looking for a devoted and playful friend, Tulip might be the perfect cat for you!

Story
I was given this pet from a friend of mines sister, she came from a big litter of kittens and I got her for free. She’s been with me for about 3 years now and we have formed a special bond, but unfortunately I cannot take care of her anymore. Due to some personal matters, I am going to be living with my grandparents and there are no animals allowed there so I had to make the sad decision to rehome my cat and find her owners who can tend to her needs and give her the love and attention she deserves. She is certainly neurotic, mild pet aggression and has been known to pee when stressed out. She was put on some anxiety medication at one point, but I struggled financially and had to ween her off. My roommate and I tried to reintroduce another cat into my current household and she did very well after we properly socialized them and I saw some real changes in her temperament and behavior. She clearly loves having friends around. She’s very playful, loves a patio, and loves to cuddle.

Story
They should be kept together, as they are very close, reliant and dependent on each other. They are 3 1/2 year old brothers (DOB 9/9/2020), all black except for Salem (the chonky one), who has a little white spot on his chest. They are fixed, micro-chipped and litter box trained. They are picky eaters but ONLY because they eat dry cat food and no expensive or canned stuff. They don't like people food (even bacon!) and only like a certain brand of treats that I've gotten them (can't remember the name right now). They are very leery of people, kids, cats and dogs, but I think they would be okay if they were around them more. They do like their peace and quiet, though. They have been indoors since birth, as we live in an area with a lot of wild animals and are next to a buy street. We do have to move out of our house before July 1st and will be, basically, homeless until we find a house, so they absolutely cannot stay with us.
