Story
Hi! My owners call me Hanje. I’m a three year old spayed female looking for a new home. I’m blind in one eye, but that doesn’t stop me from being playful and adventurous. I’m great at the vet and I’m not a picky eater. I’m generally healthy (FIV+) and up to date on all of my vaccines. If you’re looking for an active, quirky, and friendly kitty to add to your family, look no further!

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
Daisy is a very special cat, both with her needs and her personality. She was born blind and deaf, but doesn't let that stop her. She has been able to map out our three level townhouse and gets around without issue. Her scent is that of a superhero and helps her find us throughout the house. If she can't find us, well, lets just say she doesn't need a megaphone to call for us. Like normal cats, she loves to lounge in the sun (and go outside, so if you have an enclosed outdoor space, great!), play with crinkly ball toys, and eat all the treats she can get her paws on. Daisy needs to be in a house with another cat, as she relies on that cat's help to get around and play with. She also needs an experienced owner who is home most of the time (remote and/or hybrid workers welcome!) because she gets anxious being alone. Daisy also has a history of accidents, even though she is litterbox trained. This usually happens when she gets "lost". I hope there is someone out there to love her!
