Story
Hi! This is Sailor and he's about 8 months. He is one of the last of 4 litter mates to go home. He is such a sweetheart. Once he loves you he will follow you around like a puppy. Every night he sits at my door asking to come in. He needs someone very loving and attentive. He will literally sleep face to face with you so be prepared! This sweet baby boy is waiting for his forever home!

Story
Who says you don’t get second chances in life? That’s certainly not true for this sweet older lady. We don’t know much about her back story, but what we do know is that somehow she found herself alone on the streets of Baltimore. She was taken to Baltimore Animal Control, where everyone there immediately fell in love with her. As stressful as it must have been to lose her home, be kicked out on the street and then wind up at a busy shelter, her wonderful disposition just shined right through. She absolutely adores people and was a well loved pet at one point. She can’t get enough of being petted and receiving belly rubs. She is an easy going ol’ gal and gets along fine with other cats and animals. She’s extremely adaptable. She has perfect litter box skills and manners. She’s not one to climb up curtains or scratch on furniture. Her favorite thing in the world is just to snooze next to her person. She does have a playful side, but in general she’s a very calm girl. Just an all around sweetheart. She will make a new family very happy. Like all Furever Home cats, Uni is FeLV positive. If you’d like more information about FeLV or Uni, please contact FureverHomeMD@gmail.com or call 301.703.1674

Story
Hi! My name is Rollie Pollie! I have no clue how to say how amazing I am in words. You have to meet me to believe it. My foster mum says I’m bomb proof. Nothing phases me. But why should it? Life is too short and I want to experience everything! Mum says that makes me sassy and a little insane, but I think my positive, curious and friendly personality serve me well. If there’s a closed door, I want to see what’s behind it. If there’s a new animal, I want to meet it. If there’s a new food, I want to eat it. Stop and smell the roses, make a new friend and live life to the fullest. That’s my motto! Like all the other cats at my rescue, I am FeLV positive. If you don’t know what that is or have any questions, feel free to email my foster mum at FureverHomeMD@gmail.com or call 301-703-1674. She loves talking about how great we Felvies are!

Story
Sweet little Daisy has every reason to distrust people, but like most animals, they are willing to give us a second, and sometimes a fifth, chance. Daisy was abandoned on the streets with her brother when her family moved out and left them behind. A few months later, her brother was attacked and killed by a dog. Luckily for her, a caring neighbor began looking out for her and leaving food. As time passed, it became apparent that little Daisy was just not doing well as an outside cat. Her fur lost it’s shine and Daisy began to get sick. Again the nice neighbors took her in, but unfortunately for her, by then she had contracted FeLV so the neighbors couldn’t keep her. Because there are not nearly enough FeLV rescues, many have a long waitlist. The neighbors were concerned Daisy wouldn’t survive outside in the hot summer so they expanded their search until they found us. The problem was that we were a 16 hour drive away! But the nice neighbors were willing to make that sacrifice for Daisy. And we very quickly understood why. Daisy is so worth it!!!! She is the most lovable little girl! She loves to snuggle with her people whenever she can, but she’s not overly Velcro either. She loves to play with her toys as well, but she’s also ok on her own through the day. She has the most adorable little chirp and will actually have an entire conversation with you, although we admit, sometimes it’s hard to understand what she’s saying. She also has impeccable litter habits and will actually wipe her little paws off before walking away from the litter box. In summary, Daisy is perfect! Like all our cats, Daisy is FeLV positive. If you’d like more information on what that means, feel free to call us at 301.703.1674 or email FureverHomeMD@gmail.com.

Story
Meet Square! Square is a large boy, but not obese. He needs the bigger frame to carry around all the love. And he has the most smoochable little pink nose! He’s a confident, curious boy who likes to snuggle but isn’t overwhelming about it. He’s a gentle giant. He’s obviously had a tough life because he does shrink away if you come at his face too quickly, but once he trusts you, he loves to be stroked and petted. At four years old, he’s that perfect age when he still has a playful side, but he also enjoys a good nap. He has perfect kitty litter etiquette and doesn’t scratch up furniture. He does well alone or with other cats. He’s perfect for a new cat owner since he’s just so easy to have around. He’s extremely adaptable and will do well in most households as long as there is at least one window that allows a sunbeam to come through. Like all Furever Home cats, Square is FeLV positive. Therefor he can not live in a house hold with a FeLV negative cat. If you’re not familiar with FeLV, feel free to reach out to us for more info. FureverHomeMD@gmail.com or call 301.703.1674
