Story
Ollie is a snuggly sassy lady. I got her when she was about a year old, and her previous owner had her declawed. It took a lot of trust to get her to open up. She likes to “rough house” when she lays on her back, you just grab her belly and she will grab your hand, it’s so cute. One of her favorite ways to play is to swat when you walk past, she will “hide” and then bat at moving targets (humans, and dogs). She was raised with other dogs in the house and, while she does love running around with them, she will run to her tree for security. She is spayed and I will pass along her cat tree, litter, and toys.

Story
Chloe is a five year old female Calico An excellent mouse hunter. She’s been recently pregnant but lost her babies after birth for unknown reasons. I believe it’s better for her health that she doesn’t get pregnant again. She’s become way more affectionate and clingy and her attitude towards other cats changed from “leave me alone “ to “here let me scooch on in here and give you a bath. I demand attention “.
