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
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.

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.

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.
