Story
I acquired sprinkles when he was only a few months old. He is honestly the best cat I’ve ever come across or owned. He is extremely sweet and loves to rub up against people non stop especially right in the morning when he wakes up. He is very good with kids and very smart. Unfortunately, we have a new baby at home and no space for him and the other pets we own so unfortunately we are looking to have him re-homed to a loving home with the space and love he truly deserves

Nutmeg and his brother, Basil, are best buds. Super sweet and super comical. They love to cuddle up with their foster. They are "girl's best friend" kinda cats ! Do well with the other cat in foster home and respect his crabby old man attitude. Haha Also LOVE kids and greats all visitors ! These very easy going boys really need a home. Being a bonded pair, its been hard to find them adopters.

Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
The perfect cat for a quiet one person household. A calm quiet cat who’s very particular about her people. If she likes you she loves you. Loves a quiet covered space and sunshine very relaxed cat in her own environment where her space is respected. She can be quite the diva so recommended for an experienced adopter who’s willing to work with an under socialized cat. She can be sensitive and fearful especially of other animals. Cannot go to a home with other animals or children. That being said if you become her person she will adore you. She loves her temptations and will beg to be brushed.

Story
Ginger is around 9 years old she is very sweet and lovey towards her owners. She loves attention and is affectionate and purry. Unfortunately for us she does not get along with our other cats, and we just got married and she does not get along with my cat Magoo. We love her but we think it would be best for her in a new home so all pets can be happy. She is a wonderful lovey kitty🥰
