Story
Cutie is about 4 years old. She has continued to pee in different places in our house despite many different attempts and strategies. We think she may be uncomfortable with our other cat, or maybe there is a different issue with our home. She is very laid-back and likes affection.

Story
Meet your new "Best Cat Friend Forever", Snowball! This very special, very social former community cat is in search of a forever home. He was being fed by a local caretaker who noticed him limping, unable to put any weight on his right forelimb. We had him treated at a local urgent care and he fully recovered in less than a month! Snowball is extremely energetic, curious, and smart. Great eater, food motivated, and a fast learner. This makes him easily trained. He's very attentive and respectful of his family and environment. He has no special needs, just love and cuddles! Once he warms up to you you'll have found your new "Best Cat Friend Forever"!

Story
I got nyx from pet smart, at the age of 1 years old. He is very nice cat to humans, rarely scratches people and kids. Is a very lovable and cuddly cat. Like to play and definitely like to eat. He is pretty clean and naps a lot. It would help a lot to rehome nyx so her could be in better care and a better environment that fits him. He is at risk of being put out on the streets. Please help if possible.

Midas was born June of 2022, sadly don’t know the specific date. Midas was given to me by a neighbor who couldn’t take him. He’s an absolute sweetheart. He don’t talk much but when he does he’s very soft spoken. I’m hoping to find a home that can attend to his affectionate needs with ease.

Story
Pip popped into our lives after raising a litter of kittens.  Her kittens have all found homes, and now it’s time for Pip to find her forever home.  Pip is a dilute torti who is about one year old. Pip would like to meet you if you are willing to scratch her chin while holding her like a baby and rub her bully when she rolls around on the floor. She also wants to meet humans that will enjoy playing with her when she gets in her spunky torti moods since some of her favorite activities are  jumping at wand toys and chasing laser dots. If these are things you also enjoy, then you need to meet this beautiful girl! February 25, 2024, 9:17 pm

Story
Please note: Maisie and her brother Onyx are a bonded pair which means they must be adopted together. Hi, I'm Maisie! I’m 7 years old and a friendly, well-behaved, tuxedo cat. I love meeting new people and my best friend is my brother Onyx. Other than Onyx, I haven’t been around other cats, but I’m pretty comfortable with dogs (big and small!). I also haven’t met any human children, but I think I would love them; I’ve never bitten or scratched anyone. I’m a sweetheart and, while I can be shy, I love cuddling with my Dad more than anyone. I don’t have any known health issues though I do have to eat my dinner slowly otherwise you might see it again. Our Dad has raised us since we were kittens and loves us SO much but he’s moving in with his partner soon and she’s very allergic to us; he really hopes to find someone else who will love us as much as he does. Please let him know if you have any questions or think you might be my furever- person!

I’m Onyx, a 7-year-old, friendly, and well-behaved cat. I love meeting new people and my best friend is my sister, Maisie. Other than Maisie, I haven’t been around other cats, but I’m happy with dogs (big and small!). I also haven’t met any human children, but I think I would love them; I’ve never bitten or scratched anyone. I’m a goofball who loves playing, making biscuits, and post scratching (occasionally a chair - until Dad tells me to stop!). I also love a treat (I’m chonky) and snuggling with my sister. I’m neutered with no known health issues. Our Dad has raised us since kittens and loves us SO much but he’s living with his partner soon, who's very allergic to us; he really hopes to find someone else who will love us as much as he does.

Jojo is a great cat, she is young and very sweet. She does not like my two big dogs this is why I have decided to give her a new home. She spends most her time now upstairs too scared to socialize. She loves the kids and loves to cuddle. She deserves a place where she feels safe all the time. Please only respond if you are committed to giving her the love she deserves.
