Story
Hello, my name is Inky, I'm a striking black cat ready to cast a spell on your heart. At 3 1/2 years old, I bring a perfect blend of grace, charm, and affection to any home. My luxurious sleek black coat has a white spot on my chest and flecks of white sprinkled throughout make me irresistible to pet. I embody the mysterious allure often associated with black cats. While I may appear slightly reserved at first, beneath my sleek exterior lies a gentle and loving soul. I thrive on quiet moments, enjoying the soft purrs and gentle strokes that come with companionship. I am a bit of a goofball. I love to hang upside down on the cat tree trying to seek attention. And it always works, who can resist my gorgeous green eyes? I am frequently hanging out, observing the comings and goings high up on a shelf. I love treats and playing with toys, especially ones with catnip. I also like being the center of attention when visitors come, especially adults or older kids. I'm searching for a tranquil and loving environment where I can be the shining star of your home. If you're looking for a sophisticated and low-maintenance companion, I'm the one for you. I wouldn't mind the company of another cat or a small dog that behaves. if you're interested in meeting Inky, contact us for a meet and greet.

Don't you just love tuxedo kitties?! This is Mia, who is available for adoption. She's a true Tuxedo like her sister Merry. She is black with white socks, little white strip and the most adorable heart on her nose. Mia is approximately 11 months old. She's loving and playful but much quieter than her sister. Mia is used to living in her foster home with two small dogs and two other cats but would prefer to be the only pet in the household. She would also do better with older kids. Contact us if you're interested in a meet and greet with Mia or her sister Merry.

Story
Sadie is an approximately 2.5-year-old, solid black kitty with pale green eyes. She's an attention-seeking girl with a wonderful personality. While all the other kitties are gobbling up their treats, Sadie is practically doing somersaults to get noticed by our volunteers! She just wants some lovin'. She'll jump onto a nearby shelf and nudge your hand for head and chin scratches. Since we trapped Sadie was in a cat colony, one of her ears is tipped. The plan was to release her back, but she was so friendly we decided to adopt out this lovable kitty. She gets along very well with other cats and would do fine with a small dog. The ideal home would be one with someone who can furnish her with the love and attention she longs for. We would prefer someone who works remotely from home, or a mature person or couple who can a provide a quiet environment to give her the time she needs to adjust. She would be comfortable with older kids, but no small children. If interested in meeting Sadie, contact us to set up a meet and greet.

Story
We have a beautiful, muted grey tabby available for adoption. Daphne is approximately 7 months-old and looking for her forever home. Currently, she's living in a foster home with two other cats and has a great time playing with them. Although she also lives with several small children, we think she'd do better with older children as she can have a little bit of a catitude at times. Daphne especially loves to hang out with her foster mom as a keyboard cat. After quitting time, she likes to curl up with her favorite human for some snuggle and cuddle time. She can be a little aloof at times but once she warms up to a person, she imprints on you and wants all your attention. Daphne would be an excellent cat for someone who's retired or works remotely from home. She would be a wonderful companion for someone looking for a lap cat. If you'd like to meet her, contact us for a meet and greet.

Story
Rehoming my cherished cat, whom I acquired a few years ago through a Facebook post, is a decision that was not the easiest to come to. At approximately 8 years old, she embodies a unique blend of companionship and charm that has defined our time together. In search of a new home for her, I envision a setting where she can bask in the undivided attention she adores. With a preference for being the sole recipient of affection, I believe she would thrive as either the only feline resident or in the company of humans who can provide her with the love and care she deserves.

Story
Pickles is an incredibly sweet baby who needs a new home in which she can thrive and come out of her shell. She is a shy darling, and will need a gentle patient hand as well as some TLC to help her get comfortable. She loves to lay with you and get lots of pets and scratches, as well as look out windows. She is quite laid back and easygoing. She is a bit fearful of other cats, so to be the only cat in the house is ideal. She may be a bit shy around new dogs, but should not have an issue so long as they do not chase. Any children she may be around should understand they must be gentle and not forceful. Pickles is only about 3 years old, and ready to spend the rest of her years in a loving home.
