Story
Simone is a beloved family cat. We adopted her when she was a kitten. She is 16 years old and in good health. We are unable to keep her due to her owner's allergies that have become more complex to management with ongoing health problems. Simone is friendly and vocal. She has a bold attitude, loves attention and likes to play. She sleeps a lot during the day and is mostly easygoing. She likes to eat twice a day and enjoying going outside. She would be most happy with an owner with a home with a yard, but she has very happily lived in an apartment for the last four years.

Story
Missy,or Chunk, or big Chungus is the sweetest girl. She loves head bunting, head pets, brushing, and laser toys. She was raised as an indoor cat only but loves window watching and talking to birds. She is talkative but won't wake you.She is mainly independent but I've noticed she'll follow you into the bathroom so you're trapped with petting her the whole time or your bed is her bed too. She'll lay on your chest and give the most therapeutic purrs. Update: Apologies to any of those interested while I was away due to surgery. I am reactivating Missy's account as a more suitable home is still needed. Unfortunately due to the living circumstances with an elderly mother with early Alzheimers I believe she needs a lot more care than she's getting now. If interested, please be loving and patient to her.Eats Friskies wet food seafood and chicken variety and Purina cat chow for indoor cats. I don't need a pet fee. Just want a loving home with someone experienced with cats.

Story
Cloud loooooooooooves attention and pets. He also loves butt spanks and pats. Anytime he sees a hand he just wants to be petted. He's a very affectionate cat but also very vocal and chatty. He enjoys laser toys and eating. As you can see he is a very chonky cat. Unfortunately his mother was diagnosed with early Alzheimers so she tends to over feed at times. I believe that he needs a loving home that is able to give him the attention and care that he deserves. I can't find any of his paper work at his parents home but he is fixed. He is playful with other cats and sociable. Eats Friskies wet food seafood and chicken variety and Purina cat chow for indoor cats. I don't need a pet fee. Just want him to have a loving home. Preferably with those that are experienced with owning cats.

Story
We found Rhea in Orlando, Florida while on vacation in March. We realized she was pregnant and we brought her all the way home to Maryland so that we could give her a safe place to birth and raise her babies. Now, all of her babies are weened and in their forever homes. Mama Rhea still needs her forever home! She is up to date on her shots and she has a clean bill of health. She is a beautiful cat with white/gray fur and bright blue eyes. She is likely a Point Lynx Siamese cat, given her markings and coloring. She has a very bold personality and is extremely playful and vocal. The adoption fee of $300 will help to cover her pregnancy vet bills, health check-up, vaccinations, food and supplies.

Story
Coco is almost three years old, shes up to date with all her shots and has no medical condtions. Shes a house cat but somtimes likes to wonder on the front porch and comes right back when shes done. I got her in June of 2020. Due to me being in college, and my family being very busy, we arent able to take care of her to the best of our abilities. Coco is a very calm cat and doesnt need much. She likes being alone, mainly to sleep but when shes not sleeping she loves sunbathing and playing with her toys. Shes not a huge fan of strangers at first but it takes time for her to get used to new people and places. She does like her personal space, but is a huge fan of chin rubs. I really want her to get placed in a caring home and hope she brings smiles to another families face like she did for mine.

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
