Story
HANDSOME COMPANION! Tiger is a very handsome, confident, sweet, and adorable 3-year-old male gray tabby with stunning green eyes! He craves human attention and interaction – and is a great companion / side-kick. He is an active boy and lap cat. (See photos with Tiger on laps.) He loves to plop on your lap and be petted, and he will stay there for a long time or sit next to you – grooming himself, playing with toys, or resting. He loves his toys just as much as he loves his human family. He bats his toys around, chases them, carries them and is quite the entertainer for his humans. You can even play with him on your lap with the wand which is rather entertaining for him and you alike! He is also a curious guy who loves looking out windows. He has been in a home with other cats, but not every cat likes his style of play - so we feel he would be best in a home without other cats or small children.

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
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.
