Story
Sylvia was surrendered when her owner went into a nursing home and the family couldn't keep her. She's a senior cat and, common in older cats, Sylvia has mild chronic kidney disease (CKD). She also takes anti anxiety medication daily, mixed in with her food. You wouldn't know she's a senior cat though from the energy with which she plays with toys. She will seek you out for play time, pets, and to get brushed. She'll tell you when you stopped brushing her too soon. We're looking for an experienced adopter. She will need time and patience for her to get comfortable with you before you can see her sweet and playful side.

Story
I am Moonbeam a quiet settled guy of 10+ yrs. I tend to lay low during the day and am more active in the evening especially dinner time. I was shy when I first arrived at my foster home which includes 3 other cats from young to older than me. I'm not a huggy kissy guy - ew! but I will come for regular pets and visits, I'm being treated for my thyroid which is not unusual at my age. I take my liquid meds fine with my meal. I'm happy with Fancy Feast Turkey flavors and little dry food too. I'd best in a quiet house, where I can settle in to my routine and not be started by loud noise.. Older kids and other cats are fine as long as they are kind and can give me a bit pf space.

Story
Hi, I'm Cleo ! I'm a lucky lady who made my way to Cape Ann with my 3 little kittens and we went straight into a foster home. My kittens have found their forever homes and now I'm hoping it's my turn! I adjusted instantly to my foster family's home. I greet everyone who meets me by rubbing up against legs and really enjoy chin scratches and socializing! My foster family has been so impressed at how I was such an attentive and friendly Mom, and how well I've adjusted now that my kittens are adopted. I love to play with toys, and also really enjoy just hanging out with people.... and I enjoy my foster family's dog! The dog is an older Golden who is pretty mellow and has been around lots of cats. I seem to really like her! My foster family also has their own cat. While I like her... she's not so keen on me it seems. My foster family thinks I'd do pretty well in a home as a solo cat or in one with a dog that's used to cats or even in a home with other cat friendly cats! Guess I'm pretty flexible. All I know is that everyone who meets me thinks I'm both beautiful and very sweet! Might you be looking for a kitty like me? If so please fill out an application online today and we can setup a virtual meeting so you can see me in my foster hoome.

Story
Bubba is a good cat. He is social and confident with people. He usually does his own thing but will sleep with you on the foot of the bed. He is the type of cat you can dress him up and pick him up and he would be unphased. He lets you cut his nails no problem. He loves to eat so being consistent with feeding times is important. He doesn't like to share the litter box, so he needs to be in a home as a solo cat. Also he likes routine so a permanent home is a must for him. He has done his fair share of apartment moving in his time. His favorite toys are anything the imitates flying creatures. For example the "cat dancer" is his top choice. Keep him away from plastic bc he will try to eat it! Overrall Bubba is great and is filled with a quirky personality.
