Story
Simba was gifted to my daughter at 4 months old by a family member and within days I realized i was allergic to cats. Simba is very playful and enjoys running around, Enjoys watching people sweep and loves plastic bags. I had little interaction with the cat due to allergies. We recently moved in the end of December to a smaller home and he doesn’t seem to adapt to the new place and im unable to keep my distance as before. So ive been looking to find him a new home before we moved but no luck and want to find him a good home, taking him to a shelter is my last option. Will be able to meet for him to be rehomed

Story
Keanu is about a year old and is very sweet and mild mannered. He still has "the zoomies" of kittenhood and will zip around the house but outside of that is very relaxed. His temperament seems like he is growing into the "lazy type". He likes to be held and snuggled. He belongs to my son who is moving and unable to bring him with. We already have pets and can't take on caring for another- but Keanu gets along very well with our dog and cat. We would like to find him a good home.

Safirro is a shy cat so he would need someone that gives him time to come out of his shell. When he does he is the sweetest cat that gets excited to see you when you come home. He rolls on his back for pets and tolerates brushing well. He does good with small dogs.

Story
Shrimp is an independent, sassy calico. Chatty and demanding she has a loving streak that emerges for treats and the occasional belly rub. Shrimp is a Valentines AND quarantine baby so she does need some time to warm up, but once she does you'll never forget her. Shrimp chatters with the best and can be described as an "i-pad kid" she knows what YouTube is and wants to watch all the bird videos! Shrimp is being rehomed because our senior cat simply cannot handle her teen angst energy. We are heartbroken by the choice we have had to make but know it is what is right. Shrimp will come with her food, automatic feeder, a litter box, her preferred litter and all the toys she adores (her favorite are twist ties despite owning a tub of cat toys). Shrimp is generally social and simpley needs a home that will keep pace with her. She is indifferent to dogs, has a soift spot for chicken and a heart of gold.
