I was scared and I had no where to go. I had my babies alone under a deck :(  Finally someone saw me and my babies and called 2nd Chance, but unfortunately by then I had lost one of my babies :(  Now my 3 other little ones and me are safe in the arms of 2nd Chance. I'm spayed, housetrained, had my shots and am super sweet. I love kids but I am not fond of dogs. I can tolerate cats but would prefer to be an only pet. I am ready for someone to love me FUREVERVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please fill out an adoption application: Adoption application (Dog) Adoption Application (Cat)   Please understand we do not adopt out dogs to families with children under the age of 5.

Story
Stormy was found by a family friend as a newborn whose mother abandoned him and his siblings. None of his siblings survived more than a few hours. Stormy is a very loving and affectionate kitty towards all humans. He just doesn’t get along with one of our other cats, and they fight constantly. We have another cat that he gets along with extremely well. Stormy was born on tax day 2023, and is a very energetic kitten. He loves toys that make noise, lasers, and snuggles on the couch. We would love to be able to have him here in our home forever, but we need to consider our cats that have been with us for years. This is a difficult decision that we are not taking lightly.
