Story
Yinny is a sweet 3 year old tuxedo girl that needs to be rehomed because my living situation changed and she does not get along with the other cat that I now live with. She was rescued from a neglect situation, so she tends to want a lot of attention and pets and would do best with someone who is home a lot. She tends to be skittish/defensive with other animals, so she would do best in a one pet household. She is extremely gentle and has never scratched or bit me in the year that I've had her, although she can be a little vocal when she wants attention. If you are interested in a cuddly lap cat, this is the girl for you.

Story
Cora is an incredibly affectionate, loving, and friendly cat, and would make a lovely pet for anyone looking for a doting companion. Cora is roughly 11 years old, she has lived with two dogs successfully, and she has lived with small children, as well as adults. She has never had major behavioral or health problems, nor has she displayed aggression or anxiety. Unfortunately, my new work schedule does not permit me to spend the time with Cora that I think she needs to live a happy life. She deserves to live in a home with a person or a family that can reciprocate the love and attention she gives. I would love to find a home for her where she can thrive. She gets along with everyone she has ever been introduced to, and it has never taken her much time to acclimate to new people or settings.

Story
Found kitten in front of a church in Westville days before snowstorm around late January 2024. I estimate he was about a month old when I've found him. He is the perfect companion - I can see him doing very well with a family and other animals. He loves fishing rod toys, window perches, and cuddles.
