Story
Klaus and his brother Damon are a bonded pair. I am looking for a TEMPORARY HOME for them together. We have a dog, and to keep them safe from the dog, the cats are emotionally neglected and isolated. We can't give these dear kitties what they need. Damon and Klaus came to live with us 3 years ago. They are very sweet and healthy. Klaus loves to cuddle once his gets to know you. Damon is especially friendly and loves to cuddle anytime you sit down. Klaus is a lover of toys on strings and hunting for toy mice. They have no behavior problems. Their actual owner wishes to reclaim them, but his current health and income are not stable. He used to live with us too. The cats have been happy and well-fed, and they go to regular vet check-ups. But ever since their owner moved out, they have been depressed and they get very little attention from us. With my small children and large dog, my home is not a good home for them.

Story
Mochi is a bit of a shy guy at first, but trust me, the patience is worth it😊. He may take some time to open up, but once he does, you'll witness the transformation of a timid kitty into a bundle of love and joy. Mochi is not aggressive at all; he's simply a bit fearful of others. However, with a kind and understanding heart, you'll become his everything! Mochi is quite sensitive to noise, so an ideal home for him would be a small apartment in a calm and quiet environment. He also has a tendency to hide under beds to be wary of that! He can open up to other cats (it may take time) and is scared of children. Mochi has a playful side that will melt your heart! He absolutely adores chasing around a wand and can run really fast, so playing with him is really easy :)! Mochi is also a full on lapcat! Sometimes he may even show his affection by giving you gentle licks :,). Mochi is a sweet soul who deserves a loving home

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.

These pups are in Cheverly, Maryland too!

We’re trying to our home our amazing 6 month old cat Onyx. Sadly we do not have as much time to spend with him as we wish we did. We got him when he was only 2 months. In our household we also own a chihuahua which he loves to play with as well, he’s really friendly, sweet and observant lol!
