Story
Link is such a sweetheart! A friend found him in her backyard all alone when he was around 8 weeks old, so we just had to take him home! Link is now 6 years old and has a lot of life in him. Link is the perfect blend of lazy lap cat and adventurous. He loves to snuggle on the couch but will still go crazy over a laser pointer. He is completely litter box trained, good with other animals, and good with children (although small children do scare him a little, so he will keep his distance from them). Link has never met a stranger, so the moment you lay eyes on him, he will demand all the head scratches and will be an instant friend. This fluffy chonk also loves his treats of course! Link has been with his brother Mr. Kitty since the day we brought him home, and they are best friends. They are a bonded pair, so I would love to see them be adopted together.

Story
Mr. Kitty is the sweetest boy in the entire world. We found him in a friend's garage when he was just 8 weeks old and has been the best companion ever since. He is now 7 years old and loves to snuggle! He is completely litter box trained, good with other animals, and good with children (he is a little scared of small children so he will simply keep his distance). He is a bit shy at first, so he will probably hide when he meets new people, but once he comes out of his shell he is such a lap cat and will snuggle all day if you let him! He has been with his brother Link (also a sweetie) for the past 6 years, and they are best friends. They are a bonded pair, so I would love to see them be adopted together.

Mr. peaches is the sweetest most snuggly lap cat. He just wants to be loved! He will sleep a lot, but he will also follow you around the house meowing he’s a talker. He just wants to cuddle up with you. He is pretty chill. He comes with food and litter and a litter box. He is indoor only! I’ve had him since he was a kitten and he is 14. I’m very sad to have to be rehoming him, but I have no choice. He does better as an only cat and makes a great companion.

Story
*Willing to travel for a good home! River (aka Tumtum because of her lovely tummy) is a 6 yr old American shorthair with a heart of gold. She was found by me as a feral kitten at about 6 weeks old. She has really come a long way since then! River can be skittish, especially in new places or with new people. But once she warms up to you and her new environment, she will be your best friend. She loves to cuddle on your lap and will even chat with you. River and one of my older female cats do not get along. However, she gets along great with my male cat that is closer to her age. She needs a quiet, clean, loving home where she can finally relax and get the attention she deserves.

Story
21 month old, female cat. Recently had a baby and live in a small apartment and it isn’t the right fit for her. She’s never been outside but definitely needs a more open space to play-whether that’s a larger house or a back yard space. High energy but not great with kids and only cuddles when she wants to.

Story
Four years old. Found in area as stray at 3 months. affectionate and energetic. Loves to play with wand toys. Likes giving hugs (gets on lap and puts both arms on one shoulder) and cuddling when in a good mood which is most of the time. Will provide favorite toys, litter boxes and cat tree. Up to date on shots. She is nervous around new people and environments at first. So if she needs to be socialized to a new home, it would be best to take some time for her to adjust to a new home or friends. She is a bit skittish and on a few occasions showed aggressive behavior during periods of stress. She's looking for an awesome pet parent with a good temperament, is that you?! The environment which includes neighborhood cats roaming, barking dogs on both sides, noisy bar patrons in the middle of the night and occasional fireworks may contribute to the stress. If you win her heart, the rewards are worth it, as she is a loving/caring cat who likes to cuddle.
