Story
We have had Emmerson since he was a little kitten fresh from his mama. He had his initial shots, is neutered. He is declawed in the front. He is 151/2 years old. He lives the majority of his time in the same spacious room as his litterbox. We do not let him roam freely these past few years as he has accidents with bladder and bowel. When we are home and can keep an eye on him we let him out to be with us in the same room, watching TV or working in the office. He sleeps a great deal, is very quiet most of the day and sometimes cries out during the night if he hears that someone is up. Mostly pleasant, sniffs new people and takes a day or two to get use to new humans. We are moving across country and will not be able to bring him with us. Not sure of his breed really.

Story
Simba is a very very affectionate cat. He’s an aggressive cuddler. He will always look to cuddle or sleep with you. When he’s not cuddling you all he really cares about is chilling. He’s very well house trained and have never had any issue with him. My work schedule has become much more difficult and due to that I’d have to leave simba alone for long periods of time. Simba is really great with people and kids also!

Story
El Tigre is a sweet, adventurous cat who channels his wild cousins' spirit. He likes to be the mighty king and therefore tends to challenge the other cats in his domain. He would ideally be suited as an "only child." He has a wonderful personality and likes to play fetch with bouncy toys! He has a lot of energy! Play is essential to his quality of life. He loves to give kisses and receive cuddles! When El Tigre aka Tigger was a kitten his back leg sustained a green stick fracture, which healed well. But when he is overactive it tends to bother him and he gets irritable. He is a strictly indoor cat but would benefit from a catio environment.

Story
Shadow was rescued as a kitten and has lived with us ever since. He's coming up on 14 years and for the most part he's going strong! He is cuddly, talkative, and adorable, but he does come with some quirks! He will sit on your lap, your back, your shoulder, anywhere he can sit to be close to you. He loves attention and petting and if he ever bites it's usually playfully soft. His quirks are many! He has IBS and needs special food (Hills Biome) and 2 pills per day to keep his condition at bay (specifically to prevent him from having diarrhea all the time, with his rx food, pills, and no other food, he is completely fine!) He LOVES any kind of food that isn't his own. I have seen this cat grab a chicken wing and run off. He's eaten a big head of broccoli. There is nothing this cat won't eat! Which we might let him if it didn't upset his tummy so much. We love him, we will miss him, but we can't care for him right now considering our son and other pets.

Story
Hi, I'm Milo! I am approximately 2-3 years old and was rescued off my current owner's front porch. I am looking for a new home because my fur sister and I haven't been able to get along, but I am very sweet and loving to my humans. Bonus: I am leash trained and know how to sit on command! My humans will also give you my litterbox, food, and bed. I love toys, lap naps, being brushed, catnip, affection, and most importantly, food - I'll eat anything I can get my paws on and smells good! However, I do not like other cats - I need to be king of my castle! I am very adventurous, clever, and outgoing. I also love to vocally express my opinion, whether I'm bored, need attention, or think dinner is late. I would prefer the company of my human(s) for most of the day, but I'm learning to keep myself entertained with toys. I love to accompany you throughout your day and explore your home. I am marked as special needs because I am FIV+ but I have not had any related symptoms or health problems.
