Story
Four years old. Found in area as stray at 3 months. affectionate and energetic. Loves to play with wand toys. Likes giving hugs (gets on lap and puts both arms on one shoulder) and cuddling when in a good mood which is most of the time. Will provide favorite toys, litter boxes and cat tree. Up to date on shots. She is nervous around new people and environments at first. So if she needs to be socialized to a new home, it would be best to take some time for her to adjust to a new home or friends. She is a bit skittish and on a few occasions showed aggressive behavior during periods of stress. She's looking for an awesome pet parent with a good temperament, is that you?! The environment which includes neighborhood cats roaming, barking dogs on both sides, noisy bar patrons in the middle of the night and occasional fireworks may contribute to the stress. If you win her heart, the rewards are worth it, as she is a loving/caring cat who likes to cuddle.

Story
This is KitKat. She was found outside around October 2023. She came right up to my daughter and wanted attention. We started feeding her and coming out every day to give her attention. In December during the first cold period, we found her sitting on our door mat waiting on us. We brought her in and moved her into our basement. She uses the cat box with no problem, loves wet, food, and dry food and freshwater. I go downstairs multiple times a day to give her attention, and she comes right up to me, sits in my lap and loves to be petted. If I have other things to do down there, she’ll follow me around and talk to me. I have five other cats, but no matter how many times I bring one or two downstairs to see her. She does not care for them. She hisses and keeps moving away from them. I’m looking for a home for her that has adults only is looking for a lap cat. She needs a home that will give her all the attention she wants and spoil her. She does like catnip, treats, and toys.

Story
*Bonded pair with Louie, our other listed animal.* DOB 4/11/19. Strictly indoor. Gentle, loving: claws never come out. Litter trained. Vocal about food; meals need to be carefully measured, or she will over eat. She will inhabit furniture and surfaces; boundaries are not important to her. She routinely meets us at the door, and enjoys being around people.

Story
Penny is a hyperactive super friendly and snuggly young lady brimming with love to give to the right forever person for her. Originally she was a rescue that belonged to my grandmother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She was then fostered by my sister for about half a year and then myself for about a year. She's incredibly friendly with people and has not had any issues with children in my experience. We haven't had luck with her getting along with my much older cat, or my mother's very sensitive small dog. She's both too active for them, and possessive of people. I think she would be a great solo cat, and might get along well with another active cat or a more willfull dog.
