Story
Maggie was a skeletal half-feral kitty at my sister’s begging for food. Unfortunately, she had digestive problems, threw up everything she ate; I didn’t realize until I brought her home; was why she was so skinny. 6 years later, she takes prescription dry food, a tad overweight & a healthy, sweet, indoor kitty. She doesn’t like being picked up so much but instead will sit next to you and rub against you. She’s very well mannered. If she scratches, put a post there & she gets it. Never a problem except vet visits, but what kitty likes them? Give her high places she feels safe, she’ll give you love, a low maintenance independent kitty. A week to trust you, but she’ll come purring every night and kiss your fingers in bed. I’m leaving the country and won’t stay in one place. She doesn’t do well confined, and I can’t travel with her. It breaks my heart, but she needs stability. Mature responsible home would be best. I’d help with prescription-food costs.

Story
Jesse is a little over 11 weeks old. He has a male he has had his first shots and been wormed. His mother was feral and brought him and his three brothers to me. He is very tame and playful and I would like to find a good home for him. He is too young to have neutered as of yet, but I would be glad to take the responsibility of having him neutered when the time comes. I think Spaying and neutering animals is very important. I have since taken their mother and she has been spayed. It took a while, but she and I made friends. I would like Jesse to have a home where he remains inside. He has been an inside cat until now.

Story
Jax is a cuddly and sweet little guy that loves attention. He was adopted by my ex, but generally shows more affection towards men, so stayed with me in the divorce. Now that I am remarried with a new baby, I don't have the time to give him the attention he deserves.

Good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained,
Story
I first encountered snowball in March of 2024, in a neighborhood in Apopka FL. She was scared, starving, and in danger because of her surroundings. After months of working on trust and regular feeding I finally managed to get her to the vet where she was examined and tested for FELV/FIV (both negative) she was deemed healthy and I brought her inside. She has since been house trained and loves the indoor life, playing with feather toys and she absolutely adores love and attention. With new people she is shy but after warming up she is a total baby and wants pets and to cuddle :) She is friendly with other cats, food motivated, and doesn’t have an aggressive bone in her body. She’s a true sweetheart! I’m looking for a loving home that can provide her with all the comfort and pets she deserves.

Story
Mishti was the child of a stray cat I was taking care of in my neighborhood. While I love her, I do not have the physical or financial means to take care of her, as I already have an indoor cat, and cannot sustain any more pets. PLEASE READ: Mishti is a disabled cat. She began to have a limp around Jan 2024, and Urgent Care said there is a blood clot causing it. We do not have the means to get the surgery done for Mishti. Even with a surgery, her health may decline. We are desperately looking for an owner who is willing to give her a lot of love and care for however long she has left. Her condition has been steady but recently her limp seems to be worse. TEMPERAMENT: Mishti is very fearful of people. However, in a calm, indoor environment, I am 100% confident she will bond with an owner. Her name means 'sweet', because when she is comfortable she is very sweet and loves pets and cuddling in her sleep.
