Story
We adopted Ezzy in 2018 while overseas, then experience a couple family emergencies that required us to leave her at home and have friends come play/feed her. She developed fur mowing as a result. She does not interact with children well. Will hiss at children if they try and play with her. She will use a kitty litter box but will sometimes poop outside the box. Does not like automatic litter boxes. She will gorge herself on food if it is left out. She will also steal human food to eat even if she has had plenty of food given. Vets have evaluated her and have determined it is behavioral issues. We are just not able to keep up with her needs at this time. She likes playing with strings, sitting in boxes, burrowing under blankets on the bed, some ft blankets and bird watching.

Story
My name is Sparky. I'm about 4 months old and have been fixed and vaccinated by FFC. Since coming to my foster home 3 weeks ago, I have really come out of my shell. I am extremely playful and have lots of zoomies and spend most of my time trying to win over the resident cat. My favorite toys are balls and anything that doesn't have a loud bell. Sudden human movements and loud noises make me dart for cover, but I'm sleeping on the bed and getting more and more relaxed each day. I have the cutest chirp when I want to get your attention or am excited that my breakfast is coming!

Story
Mercy has established solace in her name as she has found compassion on two occasions -- 1) when a compassionate citizen picked her up from the highway after being hit by a vehicle and took Mercy for medical care, and 2) when a compassionate foster volunteer brought Mercy to a home environment upon the request of an animal clinic when her caretaker requested Mercy be euthanized because she has a compromised immune system. Mercy is shy and reserved; she will need to establish compassion and trust with her new human companion. Her relationship will be built upon assurance, certainty, confidence and patience along with time. Mercy is laid back, quiet and fond of petting. She is pleased by laying in cardboard boxes or adores a window seat. Mercy prefers to move around on 4-powered paws than being carried from place-to-place. Her safety zone is under a bed when she feels threatened. Mercy's ideal home is one with a calm environment where she will be the only indoor feline; a home where Mercy can explore freely at her own pace. She is a great companion cat for someone who doesn't need a velcro kitty! Mercy is 6 years old and has a tortoiseshell pattern with white. She has an immunodeficiency virus (FIV) that may lead to increased susceptibility to infections. Mercy currently does not have clinical signs of the virus.

Story
Addi is very adoring, easy going and gentle. She appreciates being with her human companion and loves to snuggle. Addi chases the dot from a laser light, explores new places and indulges in food. She is not hard to please at mealtime as Addi is a fanatic of all food, but her favorites are lickable cat treats and freeze-dried raw chicken. Addi will be the perfect fit to any home -- individual, couple or family; she has been witnessed being nothing but a sweetheart around a 10-year-old! Addi should do okay with other cats and dogs; and doesn't seem to mind loud and hyper dogs. She is a 2-year-old brown spotted tabby with a powerful and sturdy appearance and alluring green eyes.

Story
Trish favors a cat window perch to watch the butterflies go by or the leaves blow in the wind or the rain fall. She is cautious around new people or new environment; give Trish a few days to become comfortable so she can socialize with her new family. She makes use of a scratching post to manicure her nails and finds entertainment and solitude in a cozy corrugated cottage hut. Trish's favorite time to play is nighttime! Her ideal home is one that is fairly calm with an individual, couple or family; Trish is accustomed to being around children and prefers calm kids over rambunctious ones! She has not been observed around other cats or a cat-friendly dog. Trish is a 2-year-old brown tiger tabby with white mittens, white blaze, white cheeks, white chin, a nose that is half pink and half black, and attractive hazel eyes.
