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.

Story
The sweetest baby you’ll meet. She’s shy at first but will warm up to you in no time. She was adopted from Anderson humane with her sibling. Before they could turn 1 her sibling got intestinal cancer & passed within a week. We took in an older cat to keep her company. Although introductions were slow & we tried our best to get them to get along, It did not happen. It actually backfired on us, she became distant & very scared & timid & has been hiding ever since no matter what we did. Anti-anxiety meds, sprays & diffusers, we could not gain her trust back. We even took the new cat away & kept him at family’s house hoping it would reset all bad feelings, to no avail. there has been multiple physical fights & the home is no longer safe for her & she no longer wants to be around us. She loves kids but she needs to be in a house as the sole cat. She loves delectables & will sit for ear scratches. House trained, never bit, she just needs love & a safe home.
