Story
Meet Winston. he is the most loving and snuggly boy ever. he comes to his name and loves to sleep with you and be held like a little baby. he’s very playful but very dominant, unsure of if he would do good with other female cats, as this is the reason I need to rehome him. Him and my other male have been attacking my girls and it’s to the point where my one girl is peeing every where and even if he comes in her sight she will pee :( I’ve tried all calming things and even reintroducing but after two months I’ve made the decision that it’s clear it just won’t work and it’s not fair to my boys to just be locked in a room. Ideally I would like them to go together because they love each other… but most importantly I just want them to go to another good home.

Story
Raza is a sweet 5 year old black cat. We’ve had him since he was about 2 months old and love him dearly. We noticed he became less relaxed after the birth of our son in 2019 and then the birth of our daughter in 2021. He seems stressed when they’re in the room (especially the toddler who is a bit unpredictable, loud, and fast) and sometimes runs out in a frenzy, sometimes bumping into things. He’s been examined by his veterinarian and they think his behavior is due to stress. We have tried some anti-anxiety medication for him but ultimately it seems like the environment of our growing family is not allowing him to relax the way he used to. It breaks my heart but I am starting to wonder if there is a home for him out there that he’d be more comfortable in. I want him to have the best life possible. He’s a snuggler and loves to lay on my legs. He deserves the best.

Story
I adopted Fontana 8 years ago at a Vet tech School. It breaks ny heart to have to put her up for adoption but I became increasingly and extremely allergic to her and my other cat Baby. Fontana is the sweetest most cuddly cat ever she loves being held and pet everywhere. She loves to sleep under the covers too. The more you cuddle her the better. She got along fabulously with my dog and other cat.
