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
Raza is a sweet 5 year old black cat. We’ve had him since he was about 2 months old and love him dearly. We noticed he became less relaxed after the birth of our son in 2019 and then the birth of our daughter in 2021. He seems stressed when they’re in the room (especially the toddler who is a bit unpredictable, loud, and fast) and sometimes runs out in a frenzy, sometimes bumping into things. He’s been examined by his veterinarian and they think his behavior is due to stress. We have tried some anti-anxiety medication for him but ultimately it seems like the environment of our growing family is not allowing him to relax the way he used to. It breaks my heart but I am starting to wonder if there is a home for him out there that he’d be more comfortable in. I want him to have the best life possible. He’s a snuggler and loves to lay on my legs. He deserves the best.

Story
I found Percival starved down to a skeleton and covered in fleas. Although the owners were contacted that he had been found, they did not seem to want him, so he stayed at my house. In the months since, he has recovered beautifully. It turns out he is lively, affectionate, and loves to play. He has a sweet, if somewhat mischievous, personality. He is unphased by dogs or other cats. He seems to love all people, although I don't have kids so I am not sure about children. His age is unknown: due probably to chronic malnutrition, he is a small cat (5-6 pounds) and has terrible teeth. The vets estimate his age at 10-11 based on his teeth, but he is probably closer to 5. He is active, energetic, and plays like a kitten. Percy needs an affectionate owner who will play with him often and give him lots of love.

Story
Bubba is a young 7 month old petite amazing cat. He loves people and to give and get affection. He will curl into your lap and sit on your chest too. If you are lucky he will even hop up on your should and pretend he is a parrot. And boy does he purr like crazy when he sees you. He adores playing especially with a wand toy or a stuffed animal he can bunny kick. This being said he does like to be independent at times when he looks out the window or is napping in the mid day. He is very chill and one of the lowest maintenance cats ever. An interesting note about Bubba is that instead of meowing he trills (like a cat hum). It is very cute because you can have a convo with him while he trills. He would be ok as an only cat but would also be ok with having a brother or sister he can play with and learn from as well. Bubba would fit just great into your home! The reason i am rehoming him is that i want him to live his best life in a home that could offer him the attention he deserves.
