Story
Kitkat is about 5 years old. I took her in off the streets as a kitten. She was fixed about a month ago. She's very loving to me and my boyfriend who she lived with alone until my son was born in 2022. She tolerated my son until yesterday. There was an incident where she attacked him and I no longer feel he's safe with her here. It kills me to do this because I absolutely love her. My child needs to come first. She does NOT like dogs. I don't know about other cats. And I would think a home with only 1 or 2 adults living there would be best.

Story
My name is Troyer (after Verne Troyer of Austin Powers’ Mini-Me- I look exactly like my mom). I was born to two amazing mommies about 5 years ago in Uptown New Orleans. I snuggle, make bread and do barrel rolls in their bed. I mew for food and treats and am litter box trained (I prefer silica crystal litter please). I have a kitty door that allows me outside privileges to hunt lizards. Scratching posts, cardboard boxes and scraps of carpet keep me occupied. I’m looking for a home with continuity of care and treats because my humans have developed bad allergies.

Story
This is sweet girl Layla. She is loving, and very cuddly! She adores sleeping on your chest and staying close to you all night long. Shes well behaved, never had aby accidents. She has been being fostered by me for about 3 months now. Her first owner had recently had her first child and couldnt take care of Layla any longer, so my fiance and I took her in. She was adopted by her first owner from Petsmart so she was thoroughly examined and vaccinated. As much as I wanted to keep Layla, we have already rescued 7 cats. Unfortunately our 7 cats do not get along well with her, regardless, she never instigates any fights or acts out. She just gets scared, so we have her set up in her own private room. She deserves to be happy and stress-free in her own forever home. ☺️

Story
Tito is a ~3YO shorthair originally from the Caribbean. Previous elderly owner adopted him as a kitten and he is used to a quiet, low-energy home. He is super friendly to other cats, loves cuddles and people (even strangers!). He is fully vaccd and neutered, but has high anxiety in super active houses and gets scared easily. He has accidents when he is stressed for too long. We know his stressors are loud noises and young children. Tito has a very loving personality. He is a very good boy, but cant keep up with my high-energy household. I am looking to rehome him where he can be comfortable and loved. Tito comes with an automatic kibble dispenser, a water fountain, and his scratching post. As of 3/7 Tito is an outdoor cat. Once adopted, I strongly suggest taking him to AVS (associated veterinary services, greenwell springs rd) to get him a checkup. They are cheap and gives amazing service!

Story
Winnie is a white and gray tiny little girl! She’s about 5 pounds. She is very shy at first so she needs an understating adopter. Once she’s had time to get to know you though she’s a very sweet and loving girl. She’s quiet and gentle. She would probably prefer a calm home without little kids or a ton of other animals (she does do fine with other cats, she just keeps to herself).
