Story
Hi! If you’re experienced with cats and are looking for a challenge: Can you foster Cindy so we see how she would behave? It can be for a short period of time. My friend thinks Cindy doesn’t like the household for some reason. Cindy is about 2y.o. and had a littler before being fixed. She could have been a stray and showed up at my friend’s door and was pregnant. She was very sweet until weeks after giving birth, then Cindy became unfriendly with the kittens and with my friend. My friend thinks Cindy doesn’t like them, because she goes out and stays in front of a neighbor’s house. There, the kids want to keep Cindy but the parents don’t. My friend has cried in frustration because Cindy is a little aggressive with her and the 2 kittens. The 3rd kitten was rehomed. Any ideas you have, are most welcome! My friend will only take Cindy to a shelter as a last option, but she’s tired. It’s been about a year. Cindy was taking Prozac but it didn’t help much. Cindy potties outside mostly.

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
Dax and his sister, Sani, are bonded and must go to the same forever home. Two kittens are often better than one - they're the same work as one kitten, and they keep each other entertained! Dax is friendly, loves meeting new people, and loves belly rubs! He likes his own space, but will never turn down time with cuddle with someone.
