Story
Soap is a sweet boy who has been with me for 14 years. We are making a move across the country. We were always planning to take him with us, but he has started showing signs of age recently and unfortunately a trip that long would be too rough on him. I think in the right environment he would thrive. He loves attention and handles dogs and children well. He just had some bloodwork done and is in decent health.

Story
Hi, I'm Fern! 😺 My mother was abandoned while she was pregnant with us, but she found humans that took her in and raised us. I was born March 2023, and am up to date on shots, neutered, and looking for my forever home. I love to trail behind my humans looking for pets, and being held to cuddle and sniff things up high. I'm very playful, I love to run around and play with toys 🧶 and then curl up beside you for a nap.

Story
Hi there! Meet Felix, a stray that found his way to me about 8 months ago. Felix is a very affectionate, playful, curious young adult cat. He has one older cat brother and a younger cat brother, and he gets along with them very well. His favorite things to do are to gaze at creatures out the window, play with his brothers, and snuggle on my chest. He needs a good snuggle every day. Felix is about 11 months old. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, and has had regular vet care. (I will provide vet records.) He is indoor only right now. My cousin found Felix as a kitten and he followed her home, but they could not keep him because of allergies. I agreed to take care of him until we could find him a new home. I have been caring for him like he is one of my own, but the plan has always been to find him a new home, as I have too many cats in my small place. He has never been around dogs or children, but I think with time and patience he could be fine with either.

Story
Big Fella roamed Mom’s neighborhood 12 yrs ago. She thought he was lost or abandoned because he was not ferrel. A trip to the vet for a check-up and neutering put his age at 1-2 years. Due to a misunderstanding his ear was clipped in the typical T-N-R manner even though Mom had decided he was now her cat. That is the only flaw on this handsome black and white tuxedo cat. Big Fella has been kept up to date on all vaccinations and has no health issues. He loves to be brushed and eat treats (especially Temptations.) BF (as we sometimes call him) has gone from living strictly outdoors (when he was on his own) to living the cushy life of an indoor cat with Mom in her assisted living apartment. Mom’s health has declined and BF gets little attention from her. Now she needs to move to Memory Care and Big Fella cannot go with her. This is the reason for rehoming. He is not aggressive and usually hides under the bed when a stranger arrives.
