Story
We have several cats needing outside homes where they can roam, cat catch mice, and be an outside pet. Most are friendly and will come up for food and can be pet. We trap and remove them from parking lots where they are trying to survive, but need a place to call home and feed daily.April 13, 2024, 12:14 am

Story
An extremely unique-looking, gorgeously patterned little scamp. Reese is one-of-a-kind! Reese is one of a litter of six born on April Fool's Day 2023. These sweet babies' mother belongs to an elderly couple who simply became overwhelmed with the new additions, and reached out to us for help. We're so happy that Mama Cat has been spayed and the kittens are staying with an amazing foster while they receive their medical care (Reese's eyes are currently being treated) and learn social skills. Please click on our link to learn how to meet Reese, check out all of our amazing cats, and how to begin an adoption application. ##1761291##

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
Best Buddies! Johnny Cash and June – 2 Tuxedo Kitties for Adoption! Currently in Foster! Email dcmcats@yahoo.com Johnny Cash (JC) and June (Junie) are a pair of sweet young cat buddies who were rescued from a cat colony that was being spayed and neutered. They are shy but sweet. JC has more black on his face and June has a white nose. They are both adorable black & white Tuxedos and are super cute! JC is a goofy kitty who plays hard! June is more serious and enjoys the activity of watching her big brother play but soon joins in! They love being together and cry when separated, but they also love to hang out with the big cats who are their babysitters. One of the other cats who is a neutered male, loves on them and washes them like a mama cat, and they love hanging out with him as their surrogate mama! They are available for adoption together. They would also be great in a multi-cat household with other playful mellow cats. They will be scared and hide at first, so need someone who would work with them and be patient while they acclimate to a new household. They are currently being fostered and socialized but are still learning so would need someone either experienced in working with shy kittens and cats, or else be willing to be patient and have time to devote to get them more comfortable around people. We would be happy to offer tips on socializing. To meet these precious tux kitties, please email dcmcats@yahoo.com and ask for an application. Please include a little about yourself and your household, and what your typical weekly and weekend schedule is like, and if you have experience with shy kittens or cats. Thank you for reading our post for Johnny Cash and June!
