Story
A Good Samaritan found Morty outside Hy-Vee in Belton and brought him to us. He was scanned for a chip and his owner was located, he had been missing a year. The owner was uninterested in getting him back, so we've kept him here and hope we can find a home better suited for him. He loves being petted.

Story
Hi, I'm Fern! 😺 My mother was abandoned while she was pregnant with us, but she found humans that took her in and raised us. I was born March 2023, and am up to date on shots, neutered, and looking for my forever home. If you bend over to feed me, chances are I will jump on your back to perch for a bit. I'm very playful and mischievous, I love to run around and play with toys 🧶 and then curl up beside you for a nap.

Story
Hi, I’m Echo! I’m only age three, and still a kitten at heart. I’m a big-framed boy with exotic looks and resemble a bobcat when I run and jump, which I love to do when playing. I like to look out the window and watch birds, and would love a tall cat tree to watch from. I welcome visitors and enjoy being with people. I’m very loving, love being petted and kisses on my head. I'm a very curious boy and enjoy interactive play with all kinds of toys. My foster mom thinks I could learn to play fetch because I once chased a ball down the hall, picked it up, ran it back to her, then dropped it at her side on the couch. I was interested and curious when a cat-friendly dog visited, so would likely do OK with one with slow and gradual introduction. I was lost and came to my foster mom’s home looking for help. She has taught me to get back from the door when asked, so please continue that since my outdoor curiosity got me lost before. Because of my playfulness and high energy, I’m not the best match for young children, but would be OK with older cat-savvy children. For more information or to arrange a time to meet me, please call Gaye at 913.661-0294. I'd love to meet you to see if we are a good match! I'm staying in the Kansas City metro and would like to make my permanent home in this area, too. #thepetconnection

Luna is an 8 year old sweet cat! Very laid back and just wants to be loved by her owners. She is litter box trained and great with kids. No behavioral issues ever at any time. She loves to play and look outside! Has only been an indoor cat as long as we have had her!

Story
I adopted Ellie from a foster as a kitten about 12 years ago. She has been an amazing cat and a good friend for those years. I just had a baby 2 months ago and unfortunately I am finding that I no longer have the time or energy to spend on Ellie. I also worry about leaving her around the baby. Finally we are moving across the country in a few months to a large city where it will be difficult to keep her. Given all of this I think it will be best to find her a new home. She loves to cuddle and will sit on your lap for hours. She is very affectionate. She always uses her litter box. She does not get along well with dogs but may be able to get used to other cats.
