Story
I adopted Lucy about 6 years ago, making her around 8 or 9 years old, from an adoption agency and she got along with my other cats just fine for about 2 or 3 years. I came home one day top her hiding and displaying fearful behavior and ever since, she's been extremely fearful of the other cats. She mostly just hisses and hides from them though, and is not an aggressive cat by any means. Lucy is a very sweet, loving cat and she LOVES having her butt scratched (though she will let you know when enough is enough.) She's been really good with kids and has more or less gotten along with other cats that mind their own business, though I believe she would be happier in a single cat home. She currently does need a high walled litter box, which I can provide, due to the stress giving her stomach issues. The only other health issue she has is teeth related and she has had teeth removed, but her latest checkup had gone well.

Story
Our cat was found in the streets, she was brought to a shelter where she got shots and neutered. We have had her for two years . She is very loving and loves to snuggle and get pets. She had been around other cats at the shelter and was friendly. She needs a home where people will love on her, and able to be around her more.

Story
Andy’s owner developed dementia snd was brought to California to live in a facility while Andy was left behind. Andy has been in foster for almost one year. He has been adopted out three times and each time he has been returned. He is at least 11 years old. Due to his dental and kidney health the vet thinks he could be older. We don’t know for sure how old he is. He had a lot of dental work done. A wet food diet is required, kidney health. He has problems using the litter box. Anyone interested in adopting Andy should have experience with senior front paw declawed cats. He is a lover. By that I mean he wants to be on your lap all the time. Someone who is retired or works from home would be best. He gets along with some cats. He gets along with low energy dogs. Andy was an only pet in his old home. It is not a requirement for his new home, but he would probably prefer it. If you think you can give Andy the care that he needs, please reach out. He will repay you with all the love he has.

Story
Fluffy is a lovable, 7 year old, fully declawed, large male cat. We have 3 young girls and he has always been really good with them and they love him so much. He is so sweet and a VERY chill cat and spends most of his day sleeping near me in the living room while I work from home. It breaks my heart to have to get rid of him, but we just can't have him in our home anymore. My husband has allergies, and in general doesn't like him, so Fluffy has never been allowed to sleep in our room, which upsets Fluffy. In the last couple years, he's had some issues with accidents outside the litter box at night when we shut him out which causes so much tension in our household that we just can't do it anymore. The accidents are infrequent (sometimes not for months at a time) and I truly believe that it wouldn't be an issue anymore if he finds someone who is home a lot and won't shut him out at night.
