Story
Molly’s mom was a feral barn cat. I believe she was taken from her mother too soon, I think they were just trying to find homes for the kittens too early. If she finds the right person she will love you❤️ otherwise she can be a bit spicy! She is about 4yrs old. We just want her to be happy and find her forever home. She would do best in a home without kids or other animals . She does live with another cat and dog, she tolerates the cat but does not like the dog! Help!!!

Story
Oreo is a couch cuddler and has a favorite reindeer toy he imprinted on right away. He only likes adults and has only ever known the inside of our home. Someone was giving away free kittens and we picked him up and gave him a loving home a little over a year ago, but we don’t believe he’s happy anymore. A lot of changes are coming with a new baby and he is not adjusting well. He deserves a loving home that will let him be care free. He’s shy but then adapts well.

Story
Update: he got a annual check up yesterday (2/16). Clean bill of health! Tater is a very affectionate cat who loves a snuggle and gets on well with other cats and dogs. He has a dog and cat brother. He is however, completely deaf. He loves to scream because of this, I work nights so get woken up by his Christmas choir impressions! I am currently coming out of a divorce and money is very tight right now and simply am not around enough for him. Futhermore money being the way it is and having other mouths to feed I cannot continue to keep him. He will make a fantastic friend for someone, I am just working soo much to keep afloat and it is becoming too much. He is a very healthy, active cat who loves to climb things and hide in any box. Not an easy decision to let him go.

Good with kids, Not good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Emmé and Claire have been inseparable since the day they were found and they both wish to remain together in their next home. Emmé (grey tabby) is 3 years old and is quite the social cat. She enjoys being around people, hoping that she could get some chin and belly rubs from them, as well as some treats. She also loves it when you swing a cat wand for her to catch or give her a toy with some catnip in it. Claire (mostly white with a few black spots) is 2 years old. When she first arrives in your home, she will be very shy, trying to hide away but still observing those around her. However, after a while, she'll become comfortable and be more like her sister Emmé, always wanting to be rubbed and following you around. Claire has not found a favorite toy yet, but one thing's for sure: she loves treats!

Story
Onyx is a beautiful 2 year old cat, she was originally adopted through Hobart Humane Society, but unfortunately was not a good fit for our home. When she is not roaming around the house exploring, she loves to snuggle and give kisses. Onyx would do best in a home where she is the only cat prowling around her territory. But she loves any person she gets to meet and does not mind a canine companion that is relaxed.
