Story
Squishy’s birthdate is 03/26/23, so he’s just a little over 10 months old. He’s a very sweet, loving cat. He does not bite & loves to lay on laps & be pet. He’s very happy & playful & gets the “zooms”. Unfortunately, I simply do not have the money to care for him like he deserves. He’s a big boy, I call him my chunky monkey. He’s absolutely adorable. He is not neutered & not declawed. He has had his rabies shot. There is no charge, just the promise of a loving home.

Story
Willow is a lovely tortie girl who is patiently waiting for her forever home! She is an absolute lovebug and LOVES being petted and getting lots of attention from people. She enjoys playing with her catnip mice and loves to climb her big cat tree. She will meow for treats and whenever she thinks her litterbox should be cleaned! She does well with people of all ages. She can take a while to get used to other cats and would need a slow introduction to other feline friends. She has not been around dogs before. If you're looking for a new kitty friend to bring into your home, Willow would be a great choice!

Story
Adopted from KC Pet Project 3 months ago, is not fitting into the home well because of energy level. Needs more than a one bedroom apartment and more attention than we can give. Is active for a majority of the day, but will hide if there is too much outside noise. He is 2 years old, just turned in October, very playful but does not like much attention besides play and does not like to be picked up. We've trimmed his nails once, manageable with 2 people and a tube of liquid treats. Very food motivated, enjoys freeze dried treats. Will give his current food, about 2 more months worth of Orijen original cat food and whatever wet cat food we may have left.

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
Wiley is a sweet, playful, and cuddly female kitten. She is white/black, with fluffy long hair length (with some tiger stripe markings). We think she is around 7-8 months . She is healthy to the best of our knowledge, eats/drinks dry cat food/water appropriately, and is litter trained. She has had wet food, but not on a daily basis. She plays well with her sibling and other cats, and has been in a smoke-free household with kids age 10 and older with no issues. She does not have any shots or other vet care (due to our personal financial abilities). We are adopting her out following the loss of a family member who was their owner. We want to see her go to a loving home where she will be an indoor pet and will be properly cared for and cherished. If you would like to meet her, please contact me. We are located in Eastern Jackson County, near Blue Springs and Grain Valley. Thank you! :-)

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.

Obi is a great, laid back cat. He does not have any behavioral issues. We are looking to rehome him because we have several animals and had a baby last year and are struggling to give Obi the time and affection and playtime that he needs. He would be great in a household where he has free rein to explore the house and snuggle on the bed with his human. He especially likes women and would be great with a retiree or work from home human.
