Story
Leo is the sweetest old man once you've gain his trust. He does a lot better in a petless home which is why I need to rehome him and why he was initially rehomed to me. I'm also disabled and can no longer afford to take care of him. His previous owners neglected him to where he was 32 lbs at 8 years old. This sweet old boy is now 13 years old and 17 lbs. Because of that prior neglect he has bad arthritis and his teeth have suffered. His previous owners declawed his front paws as a kitten. I love this sweet boy so much and would love nothing more than to keep him but that's not in his best interest. I'm rehomeing him because I love him so much he deserves better than I can provide him. Please help him and love him the rest of his days.

Story
Nelly Belly is a 2 and 1/2 year old cat. She is very petite, gentle and quiet. She barely meows but every once in a blue moon she will let out a squeak. She is very cuddly and loving, I have never met a cat with a more gentle and calm manner than Nelly's. She is playful and loves to be played with. But she is also extremely anxious and she gets startled and scared very easily. She doesn't have any special needs — she has a history of seizures but the vet could not find a cause for it; it could be related to her anxiety levels or it could be genetic. It doesn't happen frequently. The reason I am re-homing Nelly is due to the fact that my family and I are moving into a new apartment and we already have another cat. Primarily, however, is due to the fact that Nelly isn't able to get along with our other cat, Hana. Hana is very territorial, despite Nelly being here for 2 years. Nelly spends alot of time avoiding Hana and she's always anxious. She deserves to live freely and comfortably.

Story
Lily is a sweet girl who loves cuddles and just spending time with people. She can be a little timid at first, but after a short while she isn't afraid to show her true personality. She is playful and can get chatty when she wants attention. She is never too loud, though! Lily is not declawed and likes to scratch on furniture every once in awhile. I adopted Lily in October 2023 hoping she would be able to keep my other cat company while I was away at work. Unfortunately, after several months of trying to improve their relationship, Lily and my other cat still can not be in the same room together without violently attacking. I have realized that Lily deserves a home that can give her the attention she craves without needing to worry about her proximity to another cat. The vet estimates her age between 2 and 5 years. She has some tartar buildup on her teeth, but I was told it is not severe enough for any necessary dental work.

Story
I want to start by saying I truly love my cat and I feel absolutely horrible about having to do this. I got my cat in May of 2022 he was about 8 weeks old. I love him dearly but he just doesn’t like me. I am also moving in 3 months and my boyfriend is allergic to cats and his dog is a rescue who wouldn’t be able to be around him. One other thing I should mention is that he is VERY food motivated and always thinks he is starving. I have asked everyone in my life if they would want to have him and unfortunately no one is able to. I would love to find him a wonderful home.

Story
Hello! My name is Oscar and I LOVE to play and talk about my day. My favorite activities are chasing my ribbon wand and that red dot! But you have to make it land on my favorite kicker or I'm not gonna like it. I LOVE to walk around human legs, give head nudges and thank you for meals! I can be a bit of a chatty kitty, especially if you stop playing with me before I'm done. I was found wandering the streets in a northern suburb of the Twin Cities and brought in for TNR and a vet visit. They think I was hit by a car. But after a little R&R I showed a lot of interest in my new, indoor surroundings and immediately started meowing at my foster family. I promise if you play with me lots, I will be all yours in no time! I am an easygoing dude and would LOVE to live with other cats (even a well-behaved, mellow dog). I'm not too much into kiddos because they touch my butt and tummy sometimes, and I can get overstimulated. I'm also a huge fan of food, so you're gonna have to watch that. Having discovered the sweet indoor life, I'm no longer up for adventuring. A sunny window or well-secured catio/screened-in porch is ok, but leash training or outdoor wandering are NOT for me! I just can't wait to find my forever family. Is it you??? Oscar has been neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV/HW (negative), vaccinated, internal parasite tested (negative), and microchipped. His adoption fee is $225+ tax. NOTE: In the interest of serving as many cats as possible, Bitty Kitty Brigade may promote a cat being taken care of by our friends and supporters. The cat in this posting is NOT a Bitty Kitty Brigade cat and any adoption that may occur is an arrangement strictly between two independent parties.

Story
On my move back to Minnesota from California a homeless couple approached us and asked us if would would take their cat because the couldn't afford to keep her and otherwise would have abandoned her. I took her in spayed her and got her all her shots. I tried to integrate her in with the rest of our cats and was okay for a while but recently she began attacking one of our elderly cats any time they saw each other. She is a very sweet cat and loves people. She will come running to greet you at the door when you come home and will make a wonderful pet to a home with no other animals.
