Story
Millie showed up the first day we moved into our new house in the country and refused to leave. That was 4.5 years ago. Because she was a country kitty first, we are not sure exactly how old she is, but assuming 5-6 years old. We live in the city now, but she is still used to being an indoor/outdoor cat. She is a sweetheart who loves cuddles but is not pushy about it. She is also very social around company. She lives with 2 of her kittens and does a great job taking care of them. She is good at coming when you call and is overall well-behaved. Millie is looking for someone who wants a friendly companion who will take great care of her and give her lots of scratches and brushes.

Story
Mountain was born 4 years ago in our closet and still lives with his mom and 1 of his sisters. He was named Mountain because he was the first one to conquer climbing over the box wall to leave the closet. But he has definitely lived up to the name with his size. He has lived half his life in the country and half in the city and is still used to being an indoor/outdoor cat. He spends most of his time lounging inside, though, mostly on some sort of rubber mat instead of something soft, and occasionally wants to cuddle. He also loves a full body scratch and brushing and will be your best friend if you can provide that. If you are looking for a roommate cat that is a good combo of aloof and loving, Mountain is your boy.

Story
I adopted her from Great Plains SPCA in February. She is two years old and very much still a kitten. I thought she would be calmer but she likes to run and play nonstop! She was just spayed a few months before I adopted her and she was a stray. She is very playful and needs a lot of playtime. I live alone in a small studio apartment and just started a second job. She is a good cat that needs a lot more attention/stimulation than I can give her. She is full of personality and the way she lays is hilarious! She has never had a problem with using a litterbox. She is very smart, and uses her scratching posts. She is a big girl.. 11+ pounds. She is not a big snuggler and I like that because I don't want a cat that is on me all the time. She is not shy and comes right up to people who come over. All of her supplies and toys will come with her (toys, scratching post, small cat tree, litter box).

Story
Phoebe is two and half years old. We originally got her from a shelter where she had recently given birth to kittens, and she was spayed shortly after. She has a skin condition called hyperesthesia which means she has very sensitive skin and she cannot/should not be touched below she shoulders, aside from her belly when she wants you to. She loves head scrubbies and will accept attention and love on the acceptable parts of her body. She is not very forthcoming with love, but when she attaches to you she will sit near you, nap on you, and make biscuits around you. She does not do well with other dogs, at least not ours, or cats, so she should be the only animal in the home. She is very active and loves her feather toy and string toys. She is on a specific metabolic food because of an issue with her weight, but it hasn’t been an issue for about a year. She is a really great cat but she is mean to our dog, and unfortunately we cannot get rid of the dog as she is individually owned.

Story
Hallie is a playful 4 year old with a sweet little meow and a heart of gold. I'm surprised I had enough pictures of her because most times I try to take one she walks towards me to get some scritches. Hallie spent the first half of her life in the country and is currently an indoor/outdoor city cat who still lives with her mom and a brother. Anything soft, she considers her bed and she welcomes any opportunity to show affection. She's great around kids and company, and other than taking over your laundry for nap time, she doesn't cause trouble.
