Story
Blue is a 13 yo female that was adopted from the Animal Rescue League in mid-April 2024. She was surrendered by her original owners due to a landlord situation on April 1st. She was given a clean bill of health by VCA Brookline in April after we adopted her. Teeth cleaning was recommended but there are no visible signs of disease. Blue is a very friendly cat who likes to be around others and enjoys sitting on laps. She has a playful personality making her seem much much younger than the 13 years the Animal Rescue League stated and enjoys playing with cat toys. She wants to play with our 12yo male cat but our cat is not friendly and won't stop hissing at Blue. She doesn't seem to be a scratcher and is very reliable with the litterbox. At times, Blue seems though to get overstimulated and does try to bite but never has bitten anyone and seems very apologetic afterwards. Due to her unpredictability with biting, a home that doesn't have young kids would be best.

Ruby was found with her siblings and parents under a porch (the house was vacated). She and her family have been all together until recently. She is a sweet kitty but needs a quiet home to readjust to with someone who can give her the attention she needs. Once she gets to know you she will be your bff!

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.

Has 28 claws. Adopted from shelter in 2017. Don't know the exact age, but pretty sure she's adult. She's very timid as we have other 2 larger cats. But she can be very close to people when she's the only cat at home.
