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
Her name is Jersey . She is a is a very quiet, independent cat. She loves to play around the house. She also enjoys watching TV or any games you provide for her on the tablet. She loves the lights in the house. She hates noises in the house, so you are more than likely to see her run away to hide. Jersey is very noisy; she will be at the windows watching everything that is happening outside. She hates wet meals over dry meals, but I stick with dry ones because it's more safe. Jersey is very kind; she will go around the house with you to protect you. She knows how to welcome people into the house. Super cute and exciting cat. Dry meals work best. She loves toys. Please take care of her. She came from New Jersey, where she used to be mistreated until she starved. I took her to be her best mom in the world, but with my schedule, I won't have enough time to show her the affection she deserves, and I want to trust someone with a big heart to love her and accept all of her fl

Coconut is very sweet with everyone. She loves to cuddle but is also independent. She chaises her tail like a dog sometimes, which is very funny. I’ve had her for over 9 years. My son and I are moving from Massachusetts to Florida and unfortunately cannot bring her. I am happy to cover transportation costs and food for the first month. Coconut is very friendly and lives with our other Cat (Marshmallow) and they get along well.

Story
Marshmallow is a very special cat. Loves to take long naps and carries a stuffed animal with him often , very funny. He’s however shy at first, and needs time to warm up. Eventually, he’s comfortable and will be the most loving cat (he sleeps on my chest and his purrs are very loud) He sleeps next to Coconut (my other cat). I’ve had them both for 9 years and don’t want to leave them but my family circumstances changed and I’m moving to another state with my son. I’ll be happy to cover transportation cost and food supply for the first month as well as any other item.

Story
I adopted Yuki, a young 2 year old male mixed shorthair (Siamese) to accompany Taro. Despite slow introduction for the last 3 months, Taro remains hostile towards Yuki and is becoming increasingly stressed. Therefore, I am looking for a good home to take in Yuki.  Yuki is a friendly, active, vocal and food motivated young man. He is cuddly and lovely and I have had a wonderful time living with him. Please let me know your thoughts.

Story
Val is about 3 years old. I adopted her from The Humane Society in New Mexico. She has the most adorable meow. It's not what you would expect to come out of such a sweet little cat. She does not like to be picked up or held but she will sit in your lap if you are watching a movie and will lay ontop you while you sleep. She loves to sit in a window and watch the world go by. She seeks out the sun for a place to nap and also loves the warmth from the fireplace. She will entertain herself if you're too busy to play as she loves to chase her tail. She likes to follow me from room to room as she prefers to not be alone. She does get along with other cats but it takes a while. Most of her life she's lived with another cat but she's been able to rule the house on her own since February when her sister moved out with my son. I'll be traveling most of June and July and preparing to move in August. I feel it is too much to put her through to move across the country again.
