Story
Mini was adopted from a shelter, is around 1 year and 9 months old, and is looking for a calm, loving home without other pets. The ideal environment for Mini is a home with no young children and no other pets. She was in a potentially abusive background prior to adoption and one of her biggest quirks is her cute stubby tail. She does not do well with other cats, and seems to be scared of dogs. She is extremely cuddly, playful, loving, curious, and food-oriented. She is fully litter box trained, and prefers clay litter. Mini loves to play with mice toys, string toys, and balls. I will happily provide some of her food, slow-feeder bowl, favorite toys, and a cat bed to ease her transition. She is prone to overstimulation, and lightly nibbles your hand during petting. She never bites hard or breaks skin. Looking to rehome because I have another cat that she does not get along with.

Story
Meet sweet cuddly boy Tyrion, also known as Pinky T & TaTa. He is a silly kitty who loves to play and be cozy on a loved one’s lap. Pinky T is currently in loving foster care with his previous owners son & partner. Pinky T lost his beloved owner suddenly summer 2023 and is searching for a loving forever home with fewer foster cats/ dogs. He gets along with dogs and cats (unless if there are too many), loves food, and playing with toy mice. This classic Tuxedo is perfect for a person who is in search for a lap cat companion. He is approximately 4 years old. Currently there is no fee for this animal. We prefer for you to meet Tyrion in person at the most convenient petco/petsmart to make sure he is the right fit for you. Please contact if you are interested and want to meet TaTa.
