We are seeking to rehoming our cat phoenix due some life issues my husband and I are going through. He is a 10 year old cat who sleeps all day, loves to cuddle, and is extremelly affectionate. He's perfect for those seeking a calm cat who's gonna be there for you emotionally. He's trained and obey perfectly, does not scratch any furniture, and does not require any special needs. He's a healthy cat who gets along with dogs, other cats, and kids. 🙂

Wonderful cat. Sweet as can be and will come up to anyone for love. He’s been my companion for the last 7yrs, but due to circumstances I am unable to care for him anymore. I know there may be some medical issues that i unfortunately cannot afford due to life circumstances that have recently occurred and I need to rehome Luna to someone who can take care of him the way he deserves. I will provide food as well as litter. He is box trained and is an indoor cat as well his whole life. As I said he is sweet loving and loves every person he sees. He deserves the best and unfortunately I am unable to give him the best he deserves. The 30 dollars is going towards the food and the box of litter I recently purchased

Story
PUSS will melt your heart with a single meow!   They say there is no such thing as a purrfect cat, but Puss proves that statistic 100% wrong.  Puss and her companion Pretty Boy came to LaMancha after their loved one had to go to assisted living. Puss was a much-loved family member, and she is missing her family. Are you able to heal her heart? Puss has a peachy personality and she is pure bliss.  She is an avid ball chaser, loves to play, but she also enjoys cuddling and hanging out too!  She would be fine in a home with a respectful dog, and she gets along well with other cats too. Puss is a perfect kitty. Puss is about 3 years old. If you can give Puss the awesome life that she deserves, Please email Adoptions@LaManchaAnimalRescue attention Laurie and subject:  Puss.

Perfect or should we say Purrfect!  Oakley is the cutest little miss.  She loves to be in the middle of what you are doing, but is also very happy on your lap.  Playing with and chasing other cats is a favorite pastime of Oakley's.  She would really enjoy a family with children to pal around with and to start to make some great memories!  Oakley is sure to blossom into a beautiful Tabby with her bold markings.  She would also be fine in a home with a respectful canine sibling.  Please consider helping to make Oakley's life what it should have been all along.  Request an application at adoptions@lamanchaanimalrescue.org.May 13, 2024, 8:29 pm

Story
REBECCA is one of LaMancha favorite cats because of her sweet nature. She was once a LaMancha barn cat, but she’s proved herself to be a friendly, people-loving, social girl. Rebecca’s a confident girl and likes to pretend she’s Queen of the Castle. She was used to the outdoor life before arriving to LaMancha. She does enjoy spending time outdoors sometimes, chasing a sunbeam across the grass, soaking up the sun, laying in the grass, and people-watching, but she mostly loves spending time indoors in LaMancha’s Cat Condo getting loved on by her many human friends, and of course having a comfy bed to rest her cute little body on too. Rebecca would love a home where she would be an inside kitty 90% of the time, and maybe go outside safely for some brief investigating, and then return home for a lap-to-love-on with her family where she spends most of her time. Rebecca would be best in a home with older children only because she likes to have say in what her plans are for the day. She is good with respectful dogs and feline friends where she can be the leader of the pack. Rebecca is a very sweet girl and that’s why she has become one of LaMancha’s all-time favorite cats. Rebecca is ~ 5 years old. If you can make Rebecca's dream of a forever family come true, please email Adoptions@LaManchaAnimalRescue.org.May 13, 2024, 8:29 pm

Marble is one ofthe lucky ones. She found her way to LaMancha with her Momma, Ashley. Wonderfully curious and interactive, Marble would love to find a home of her own with a family where she can know love. Marble has received her first two kitten shots and is enjoying learning all about life around her. Marble would love to be part of a family where she would have other furry siblings. Of course, she would be really excited to grow up in a house with children too. Please give her the gift of a wonderful life. She us truly very deserving.

Story
“No home is complete without pitter patter of kitty feet!” MAGOO is an adorable, laidback, calm, sweet natured, lovable boy about 2 years old. His loving and sweet personality has won the hearts of all the volunteers Sadly, he lost his home and person when his owner passed away and no other family member could take him. He is longing for a home and family to love and snuggle together. He gets along with other cats too. Magoo does have one eye that is permanently damaged, but is does not bother him, or affect his behavior at all. In fact, he must be one of the sweetest boys around. Magoo is so cute and adorable, and such a joy to be around. Please don’t worry about his one damaged eye, because he doesn’t. Everyone that knows Magoo, says he’s perfecto, and once you meet him, you’ll agree 110% and l want to take him home with you. Magoo is neutered, and up-to-date on his vaccines too.   To meet this adorable prince, please email Adoptions@LaManchaAnimalRescue.org, attention Laurie and subject: MAGOO.   May 13, 2024, 8:29 pm

THESE CATS ARE BONDED AND MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER! Meet Shamsher! He and his sister Noor were brough to us when their owner developed a severe allergy. Shamsher is an 8-month-old mix who is super friendly and very loving. He lived and played well with a young child in the house. Shamsher loves lasers and belly rubs, but most of all she loves Noor, his sweet sister. Shamsher will cry if you leave him alone too long and will stand on his back legs for food and pets. Noor and Shamsher both seem to be very attached to the humans in their home and would prefer not to be left alone for long periods of time.
