Story
Hi, my name is Reggie (for now)! I was found as a stray right before Thanksgiving. I was taken inside and given all my shots. I love being an indoor cat and am very friendly with the humans I’ve met. I always have a lot to say, I love playing with my toys, and I’ll sometimes settle on the couch to cuddle. Some facts about Reggie: - Reggie is very playful and seems like he may have been a single kitten. He sometimes plays rough and needs some patience. - He’s shared a foster home with an unfriendly cat and has seemed very interested in being around her. He may do well with another cat in the home, but still needs a slow and careful introduction. - Reggie has shown some agitation when seeing other cats outside through the window. He may need patience and some distraction or training. - Reggie has not been around dogs or children, but a meet and greet prior to adoption could be arranged.

Story
Our names are Pippin and Oliver. We were born in Illinois and we're from the same litter. We are two years old. My brother and I are a bonded pair. Where one of us goes the other one follows. We can't be adopted separately. Both of us love people and we get along well with other animals. Where Oliver is talkative I'm more of the silent type. Oliver loves to be held and likes to be the center of attention. We are both indoor cats only.

Story
Hello, we're Lilo and Stitch, the inseparable duo! We're known for our sweet and friendly nature. We're a curious pair, always up for a new adventure. We're also a bit goofy and funny, which keeps our foster parents entertained. Our smarts? Oh, we've got plenty! We've figured out the comfiest spots to curl up and the best times to ask for treats. We love cuddles, but we're also independent, content to explore on our own. We're loyal to each other and to our human friends. We'd love to bring our unique blend of joy, loyalty, and laughter to your home. Adopt us, and let our love story become a part of yours! Adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccines (rabies, HCPCh, FeLv), booster shots of HCPCh, and FeLv, microchip, FIV/FeLv testing, and deworming.
