Story
Simba is a sweet, very food motivated orange and white housecat. He is around 7 or 8 years old, up to date on shots, and neutered. He has lived with dogs most of his life and tolerates them well (but sets boundaries when necessary) and one other female cat who he gets along with outside the occasional wrestling match (she's not a fan and gets annoyed at him, but Simba loves to play with her anyway). Simba does really well in a home with lots of good snuggling spots, and loves to snuggle with his humans when a soft blanket is involved. He comes running for treats and the sound of a can being opened, and likes to hang out with us in the kitchen during mealtimes. He hasn't adjusted well to life with a toddler, so we are looking for a home with older kids, teens, or no kids. He can be a little skittish, but warms up quickly with treats. We have an automatic/timed feeder and a cat carrier we will include with his adoption. Loves food too much to be free fed, and used to be pretty chonky.

Story
I got Pepper as a kitten from PetsMart with his brother 3 years ago. He is perfectly healthy and well trained but has anxiety issues around new environments and will need a few weeks in a safe environment to understand the change. He fights with my other cat but its mostly out of jealousy for attention. He would be most comfortable I believe in a single cat home. He is shy but extremely loving if he knows he's safe. He will be shy for a time but if he goes to a patient and loving home he will be fine. He is fine with dogs as long as they don't try to bite or snap and chase him like all cats. I would keep him gladly but am moving out of the country and thinks it's best to rehome him separately from his brother. Thankyou, Daniel Meek

Story
Pumpkin is a stray who showed up in our yard one day. He is easy going, playful, learns new cues quickly, loves treats and head rubs, and adapts to change well. Vet thinks he is around 2 years old. His favorite play is with ping-pong balls and a feather stick. We think he would do well with an older adopter who is attentive, can spend time getting to know him, and playing with him a couple of times a day. He bonds well and is very loyal. We have four older cats who have not been receptive to a high energy addition, but he may do well with a cat younger than he to whom he is gradually introduced.
