Story
Gus is 7 years old and loves to cuddle. He is the sweetest boy you will ever meet. My husband has a heart condition and has gotten very sick the past few months. Between caring for him and medical bills we can no longer give Gus the time/resources he needs. We believe he might be having thyroid issues going on but have not been able to afford to take him to the vet. He has lost a lot of weight and is always thirsty/hungry. We also believe he would thrive in a no cat/no dog household as our other cats stress him out. If you have any questions feel free to get ahold of me !

Story
Pippin is a 5 year old gray female cat who attaches herself to one person. When she has found her person she will follow them around and snuggle with them as often as possible. She loves morning snuggles in bed. She was born on a farm and adopted at about 6 weeks along with her sister Merry. She and her sister have lived in the same home together ever since. But her owners have a new baby and Pip just isn’t getting all the love and attention she needs and is used to. She would love a home where she is the baby🙂
