Story
Carley is the sweetest cat ever! She is quite shy but has the sweetest demeanor. She was a “rescue kitty” during the pandemic and her birthday is 5/4/2020!! She has the MOST BEAUTIFUL eyes that look like Cleopatra with black eyeliner. She is quite gorgeous and her fur is the softest I ever have felt! Her white coat is gorgeous!! She likes quiet environments and very soft blankets. She will warm your heart and home and needs to be the shining star! Carley is unable to stay with her loving family due to landlord restrictions. We know that the lucky family who adopts Carley will be so happy! Her shots are due and there is no refining fee, we only ask that you update her shots. She is microchipped as well as spayed. She has ZERO health issues.

Story
Daisy is a very special cat, both with her needs and her personality. She was born blind and deaf, but doesn't let that stop her. She has been able to map out our three level townhouse and gets around without issue. Her scent is that of a superhero and helps her find us throughout the house. If she can't find us, well, lets just say she doesn't need a megaphone to call for us. Like normal cats, she loves to lounge in the sun (and go outside, so if you have an enclosed outdoor space, great!), play with crinkly ball toys, and eat all the treats she can get her paws on. Daisy needs to be in a house with another cat, as she relies on that cat's help to get around and play with. She also needs an experienced owner who is home most of the time (remote and/or hybrid workers welcome!) because she gets anxious being alone. Daisy also has a history of accidents, even though she is litterbox trained. This usually happens when she gets "lost". I hope there is someone out there to love her!

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Leche and Crema are a pair of 8-year old bonded sisters who has been with us from the very beginning, but are now looking for a new forever family! Crema is the brave and curious one who loves to greet guests and family that stop by! She’s kept to her playful nature and loves to entertain herself with cat treats and plastic wraps she finds. However, you’re just as likely to discover her sunbathing or in boxes! Leche loves to be a purring, affectionate ball of fluff on your lap and cuddle the night away. She will adorably and gently reach out her paw to tap your arm when she wants a good pet on the head or a scratch on her back. They are both indoor cats, and we politely request them to remain indoors. Both are litter box trained and have been taught not to scratch furniture and will be perfectly content using their scratching post. If you think you have the perfect family home for Leche and Crema, we’d love to hear from you!

Story
**Elsa comes with 8 months worth of litter and 2 months worth of food if adopted by March 30!!** (Also available: litter box bench, cat tree, automatic feeder, and 3 gallon water dispenser bowl. ) Elsa is a sweet cat but needs a little time to warm up to new people. She loves to be scratched on the back and enjoys playing with other cats. She is more skittish around new people or if their is a lot of commotion around, and needs a safe place to retreat to if guests are coming over, but other than that she is a great cat!

Story
Missy, aka "Chunky" is the sweetest fluff ball. My mother has had this cat for about 10 years, unfortunately, my mother has developed Alzheimer's and her home is no longer a safe space for Missy. I have moved back in temporarily to help create a safe space for my mother and her pets. Even though Missy hasn't seen me for years, she has provided me with kindness every day. Missy loves baby talk, pets, and head bunting. She can be an affectionate cuddle bug, but don't overdo it... she will come to you. My mother also has another adult cat and Missy shares space pretty well. She minds her business with the other cat and plays with them sometimes. I think she mainly enjoys human affection. She's never dealt with kids, only other cats. I'm unsure how she deals with dogs. I'm 100% sure she is fixed and she's always been an indoor cat. However, as I'm cleaning my mother's home I can't find any of Missy documents. I don't need a fee, I just want to provide a safe space for Missy. Please help.
