Story
Ramona (and her sister Beezus) came to us at kittens and have been the most loyal and kind companions to our family of 4. We have two young daughter and they have never scratched or bite anyone ever. Ramona is prone to stress, so she receives a small pill of fluoxetine daily, which is inexpensive and she takes easily. This prevents a skin rash and peeing outside the litter box. We’ve never had an issue with either of these things once she went on the medication. We have to surrender the cats because we recently got a puppy and they despise him and hiss and attack him often. It’s just not working out. We are heartbroken that we have to give them up, but we are not willing to give up our pup.

Story
Beezus is named after the sister of Ramona from the Ramona Quincy children's book series. She and her sister, Ramona, came to our family of 4 as kittens. I have two young daughters and the cats have been nothing but loving and cuddly to our family. It pains us to let them go, but we recently got a puppy and they cannot stand him. They hiss and attack him constantly. It's not working out. Beezus takes a little more time to warm up, but she loves being brushed and chasing the red dot of the laser pointer. She has never bit or scratched anyone since we've owned them. We'd like to keep them together, but she can be adopted without her sister.

Story
Rita is an energetic and playful girl about 1.5 years old. She was found underweight and pregnant on the streets last summer and a few months later became mom to 3 healthy kittens. Although she did a great job taking care of her babies Rita is glad she has been spayed and will not be having any more litters. After some TLC this gorgeous little girl is ready to find her forever home. She loves being an indoor cat but does not love other animals and needs to be an only pet. Rita enjoys playing with her feather wand, chasing balls, watching birds, and cuddling up next to her humans. If you have any questions or are interested in adopting Rita please send me a message!

Mystery is a 12 year old, sweet sweet kitty. He knows how to shake your hand! We adopted him as a kitten on Halloween from the Montgomery County Animal shelter and have loved him all these years. He was declawed as a kitten (front claws) and is neutered. He loves both in and outdoors, eats dry kibble only and is litter box trained. All his shots and records are up to date. He is microchipped. We are relocating and unable to take him with us. We would be grateful for him to have a loving home like the one he has grown up in. You will love Mystery! We do!

Got him from a friend who rescued him as a kitten from the woods. He is spayed. Very gentle and quiet. I have 2 cats and i find it difficult caring for 2 because of the expenses and lack to time to cate for them.

Story
Little One has been with me since she was about a year old, she's 7 now. She's a sweetheart who loves to play and snuggle. She was declawed by her first owner, so she absolutely needs to be an inside cat but she can't destroy your furniture or hurt small children. She would be happiest in a home with more than one person, she's very sociable. She loves watching birds and squirrels through the window. I'm only rehoming because where I live she has to stay in my bedroom and she's going stir crazy.
