Story
Rehoming Two Very Affectionate Cats I am faced with the difficult decision of finding a new home for my two sweetheart cats. They are two years old and from the same litter. Healthy, neutered, and up-to-date on vaccines. Due to financial circumstances, I am moving in with my family, where there is a dog that is aggressive towards cats. To ensure their safety and well-being, I am seeking a kind, safe, and loving home where they can continue to thrive together. Please see the attached photos. If you are interested in providing a forever home for Moose and Bao, or if you know of someone who might be, please reach out to me at the email provided. Your kindness and assistance in spreading the word are greatly appreciated. Gratefully, Isabel

Story
Little Bear Cub got his name bc he is the largest in the litter, sleeps the most and had a cute little belly for first 8 weeks! He is very sweet and a bit reserved; loves attention but you generally need to go to him and he’ll greet you with a cute little bum wiggle… just like his mama’s. He loves to play and is the gentle giant of the litter. He is the last kitten that needs to be homed and it’s my strong preference that mama and LBC go together. Mama (Noiree) was a stray that gave birth on my porch. She is only about 2 yrs and is just wonderful - with a fun and quirky personality. Due to environmental hazards - I am not able to keep her long term as she is definitely an inside/outside cat and will thrive the best in that situation. A home with a good sized yard - in a residential neighborhood would be the most ideal so she can go outside from time to time. Mama and LBC are bonded and will make great company for each other. Please see Noiree’s profile for more info about her.

Story
Noiree was a stray I fed outside for many months and she ended up giving birth to several kittens on my porch in Dec. I took them inside for the winter where she has been adapting to inside life while taking incredible care of her kittens. Noiree is about 2 years ago. She is not yet a lap cat but loves to sit close by and loves to be petted. With proper care and love- she is now just stunning - beautiful coat, healthy weight and has a cute personality. She is very much an indoor/outdoor cat and will thrive in a home with a yard, not near a busy street where she can go in and out at some points in the day. She does not wander too far but needs to ‘smell the roses’. She can be a bit fearful of loud noises and will take some time to warm up to visitors and strangers. Due to many environmental hazards near my house, I am not able to keep her unfortunately. Also, she must be adopted along with her kitten- Bear Cub - whom she is very close and bonded with. Please see his page for more info.

Story
Donnie (short for Donnie Darko because of his endearingly creepy stare) is just looking for someone to return some of the enormous amount of love he has to give. He's been living rough for at least the past year, so he takes a bit of time to warm up — but once he trusts you, he is INCREDIBLY affectionate. Stand near him and he will nudge your legs until you pet him, and then he just NEVER gets tired of pets — ear scritches, belly rubs, you name it, he's into it. Donnie has been very tenacious in trying to adopt us — the only problem is that he doesn't get along so well with the two kitties who beat him to it. He's probably best as an only cat; he will keep your house/yard/apartment very safe from intruders and absolutely shower you with affection. Because he wandered into our yard a year ago and just won't leave, we don't know much about his story. What we DO know is that he's an adult, neutered, and DESPERATE for affection.

Story
Harold joined our family in 2012 as a kitten and is now 12 years old. Turns out one of our family members is very allergic to cats. And our other two family members no longer live here. So Harold is not getting the attention he needs. Plus. I can’t care for him Or spend a lot of time with him as I travel a lot. Harold is very mellow. Harold likes to sleep in the sun. Harold likes to sit nearby while you are working on a computer or watching TV. Harold is not picky about food And does not go outside. I will miss Harold, but want to find a home where someone is not allergic and he can get the attention he needs.
