Story
Pancetta is the stereotypical orange, zany cat. He loves the company of humans and craves physical affection. He is pretty vocal with cute short meows and has a fluffy tail. Pancetta is about 4 years old, litter-trained, and mostly orange with some white areas. Pancetta is also FIV-positive. FIV-positive cats can live long, healthy lives and are typically not a danger to other cats. In fact, after doing some research, I had no fear of bringing him home from the shelter to my family with multiple cats. The only issue Pancetta seems to have is a sinus matter that sometimes results in dark discharge from his right nostril and eye. It doesn’t appear to bother him and he allows me to clean his face without any fuss. I’d love to keep my cat family together. However, due to a family member’s disability increasing in severity, my household has gone through significant and unexpected changes over the past few months. I now am unable to care for my pets like I used to.

Story
Pancake is a very sweet kitty who is mostly white with random black spots. He is named Pancake due to the funny way he plops on the ground flat like a Pancake. He also loves to lay on his back to have his tummy rubbed. During a belly rub, he often rolls back and forth while reaching out his paws to the side. It took a long time for Pancake to learn how to verbally communicate with me. Now, he chirps to get my attention like a bird. Overall, Pancake is healthy. I'd love to keep my cat family together. However, due to a family member's disability increasing in severity, my household has gone through significant and unexpected changes over the past few months. I now am unable to care for my pets like I used to, must adjust to the changes, and find them more suitable homes.

Story
Autumn was caught in mid-November as a weaned kitten who was starting to roam with her litter mates and learn hunting from her mother. She is a shy but sweet tabby-calico or caliby (tabby in place of black) beauty who likes peeking out at you from behind doors and other obstacles that she feels secure behind, but is very curious and food-motivated. Despite her shyness, she likes to sit or sleep nearby, especially when she can watch the TV, and loves it when you talk to her. She likes to play with strings and feather toys, but tends to get pushed back by her more assertive siblings. She is very intelligent and well-behaved, and gets along well with older cats. Looking for someone who will give her plenty of attention and patience.

Story
Gracie was adopted from a local humane shelter. She loves being around people and is very social. Gracie likes being pet on her head and to sleep on your lap. She loves to find high places to explore and to run around and play with toys. Along with short walks on a halter and leash as well as hide in small spaces. Gracie was declawed before coming to this home but due to high energy she bites when feeling threatened. She does not prefer to be held or picked up but will jump up on your lap and enjoy a purr. Gracie loves milk as a treat and eats Purina for upset stomach for her food. Gracie understands simple commands and is a beautiful cat will be a great pet for a couple or single person with room in the house to exercise.

Story
Cadbury is such a handsome, unique boy. He is estimated to be around 6 years old. He came to us when he wasn't feeling well. It turns out Cadbury has some slight neurological problems due to either injury or a deficit. He is pretty much a normal cat but he can be shaky and his tail twitches. Cadbury does need a special home who is willing to take the time to spend with him. He does have some litter box problems, he doesn't always pee in it. He gets pretty close but has made improvements with a bigger litterbox. We have designed a special litter box for him that has been using.Cadbury has such a personality, even with his problems. He is working hard on relearning the litterbox and absolutely loves attention. He has the funniest head nod when he's excited and loves when people come hang out with him. Cadbury gets a supplement in the evening to help him, which is served in some wet food. He will come out and wait right by the door once he sees the employee around medication time. He does his head nods and is super happy when he finally gets his food. He certainly is a sweet quirky guy. At the vet he likes to lay on the fatigue mat or right in front of the door so the vet/techs can't leave. Cadbury is neutered, FeLV/FIV negative, and up to date on vaccines. He will need to be an indoor only cat!**Please fill out an application found on our website under "adopt a pet" and send it in to start adoption process.**All Dog Adoption Fee's are $175 Cats are $100Includes initial Vaccinations, De-Worming, Flea Meds, Heartworm Testing, & Spay/Neuter
