Story
I’m looking for a loving home for my buddy, Jango. I’ve had Jango for almost 11 years, since he was a kitten. My wife and I have combined pet families and unfortunately Jango just doesn’t fit in well with the group. He has picked out my wife’s best friend as a target and relentlessly stalks him. He doesn’t want to be close to most of the other pets, is a bit of a loner and would probably be happiest in a home with a female cat or as a solo cat getting a ton of attention. He was happiest when it was just me and him and one other cat, and he could have all of the attention and bed space he wanted. He is just too skittish and standoffish for our now larger pet family and would be happier in a different environment. He’s been inside his entire life and after initial shots I haven’t kept on them as regularly as maybe preferable. He’s never had any health issues, is litter trained and stays off of counters and tables. He’s a good boy. He’d love to game or read with you for hours.

Story
If you’re looking for a sweet, energetic, tummy-rub loving best friend, Momo’s the girl for you. She’s lived in homes with other cats before and gets along great, just wants to cuddle and play. Hasn’t been around dogs or kids yet, but she’s not shy and I would think she would do great with either. She loves catnip toys and will have full conversations with you. Has not been spayed yet, but is fully litterbox-trained. She’s very curious and will run up to see what you’re doing before flopping over purring asking for pets.

Story
Meet Max, a striking black cat with a presence that commands attention. Born in June 2016, Max is a handsome feline with a sleek coat and piercing green eyes. While his exterior exudes confidence, Max is a cat with a complex personality, best suited for a patient and understanding adopter. Max is fiercely independent, preferring to chart his own course rather than follow the crowd. He's a cat who values his solitude and enjoys spending quiet moments lounging in his favorite spot. Despite his aloof demeanor, Max has a heart of gold waiting to be discovered by the right person. However, Max's shyness can sometimes be mistaken for grumpiness. He's a timid soul who takes time to warm up to new people and environments. Loud noises and sudden movements can startle him, so he's seeking a calm and serene home where he can feel safe and secure. With the guidance of an experienced adopter, Max has the potential to blossom into a loyal and loving companion. Patience and understanding are key when building trust with this gentle soul, but the rewards are immeasurable. If you're looking for a cat who's as mysterious as he is beautiful, consider opening your heart and home to Max. With a quiet environment and a patient adopter by his side, Max is sure to thrive and become the faithful companion he was always meant to be. Adopt Max today and embark on a journey of love and companionship with this remarkable feline!
