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.

Story
Meet Winston. he is the most loving and snuggly boy ever. he comes to his name and loves to sleep with you and be held like a little baby. he’s very playful but very dominant, unsure of if he would do good with other female cats, as this is the reason I need to rehome him. Him and my other male have been attacking my girls and it’s to the point where my one girl is peeing every where and even if he comes in her sight she will pee :( I’ve tried all calming things and even reintroducing but after two months I’ve made the decision that it’s clear it just won’t work and it’s not fair to my boys to just be locked in a room. Ideally I would like them to go together because they love each other… but most importantly I just want them to go to another good home.

Story
I adopted Fontana 8 years ago at a Vet tech School. It breaks ny heart to have to put her up for adoption but I became increasingly and extremely allergic to her and my other cat Baby. Fontana is the sweetest most cuddly cat ever she loves being held and pet everywhere. She loves to sleep under the covers too. The more you cuddle her the better. She got along fabulously with my dog and other cat.
