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
We adopted Maude from PAWS Wakefield in early 2019. The Shelter estimated she was still under a year old then, which would make her around 6 years old now. Maude needs a stable and quiet home with no young children or other pets. She is very sweet and affectionate with adults, but as our young son is getting older, louder, and more mobile, our tiny city apartment is not the right place for her any longer. She is up to date with all shots, and is checked yearly with our vet. She is an indoor cat strictly, and is spade. It breaks our hearts to rehome her, but as our family expands and grows we realize she needs a better permanent situation.

Story
Tyson is a sweet, elderly lovebug. His favorite activities are getting brushed, napping in a warm lap, and having a snack. It's hard to say no when he asks for food, so it's easy to accidentally let him gain weight. Since moving in with my partner 1 year ago, her cat allergies have been awful. We vacuum constantly, brush tyson regularly, and keep him out of the bedroom. My partner has tried immunotherapy, and we even feed Tyson allergen-reducing food. However, as much as it breaks our hearts, I can't ask my partner to keep dealing with her allergies so we are looking for a home with a someone who can give Tyson all the love he deserves. He still has a lot of energy for a 12-year-old and is fairly chatty. Thunderstorms, loud noises, and vacuum cleaners are scary so it helps to give him a good hiding spot. Upon adoption, we'll also hand over his medical records, a kitty carrier, an autofeeder, and a pretty large carton of treats.

Story
Panini is a sweet and cuddly cat who is extremely shy. She needs plenty of time to open up to you and at first she'll hide and run away but if you're patient enough, she'll open up and eventually cuddle you. She has a ritual of always demanding cuddles and spooning at night before bed, and will often lay on top of your head or find some way to constantly be touching you. She needs a quiet home and someone who is patient. She has also been diagnosed with Feline Ideopathic Cystitis, where an unknown stressor can cause her bladder to inflame and she will urinate in different areas. Special attention and food is required so please, inquiry if you're experienced. Otherwise she is such a joy to be around.

Story
I got Juno from a friend who had a litter of kittens and was giving them away. She is a little over two years old, not sure of her exact birthday. She loves people and being around them. She will follow you around and get to know your daily habits, including when you're supposed to wake up (she'll gently paw your nose). She is used to living with just one person in a small home, but has also stayed with many people in a bigger home when I visited family with her. I have flown and driven with her a few times and she's very good about it. She is initially cautious around new people, but is eager to warm up to them. She might've had a poor experience with children when she was a kitten because I notice she is more cautious around young kids. She would do best with a smaller household and someone who will give her regular attention because she is very affectionate and attached to her owner.
