Story
Luna for Adoption or Adopt with Jack - 2 Beautiful Tortie Cat Girls ! Please Email dcmcats@yahoo.com These pretty cat girls are older kitties in need of new homes. Their owner and his family have come into a situation where they can no longer keep them. Luna and Jack have been indoor cats since they were adopted as kittens. They will occasionally both sit together in their owners lap. Their owner is taking them for check ups at the vet and can supply a litter box (or 2 if necessary), toys, and a ceramic drinking fountain. - Luna has lovely Tortoiseshell markings and is primarily black. She is a high energy, goofy chatterbox once she feels secure, her personality shows through. If her person is in the room she will want constant attention and lap time. Luna loves to play and have fun! She is, however, skeptical of strangers and takes some time to warm up to them. Once she is comfortable, she is very interactive & sweet, and quite talkative! She is somewhat dependent on Jack. Her estimated birthday is 2/26/13. She is microchipped. - Jack has a classic tortoiseshell coat and her face is blonde on 1 side. She is a very sweet, calm, and affectionate. She is very quiet and patient. Jack likes sitting on her owner’s lap and has always taken well to visitors/strangers and will often take to a visitor’s lap without delay. She is fairly independent, but happy to play and enjoys companionship. Jack would be fine being the only cat or can be adopted with Luna who is somewhat dependent on her. Her estimated birthday is 3/1/12. If you are interested in adopting either or both of these 2 beautiful sweet Tortie girls, please email dcmcats@yahoo.com for an application. Please also include a little about yourself and your household in your reply and what your typical daily and weekend schedule is like.

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!

Story
Callie is roughly 1.5 years old. I found her roughly 6 months ago and she was pregnant. I decided to keep her on my property to ensure she was fed and safe. She had the kittens and they were rehomed. I now need a home for Callie. She is everything a person could want. She is very chill and adapts to any situation. She lets you hold her, grab her and handle her however you want. She meows rarely. She loves being inside but can go outside and will return home whenever she wants to. SHE LOVES FOOD. She could endlessly eat. She doesn't play with toys much but may if you work with her on it. She doesn't scratch at furniture or anything.
