Story
Poppy is cute little kitty that loves to snuggle and window watch. She is very talkative and almost growls and little when she meows. She loves her food. She’s always the first one to the bowl. Despite that she’s very tiny and small and has been for all her life, but it seems she has been more skinny recently. She is potty trained but has a few issues. She will spray and/ or pee in random spots. Including clothes, shoes and furniture. She also has a problem with getting litter everywhere when she uses the box. Besides those things she’s a very sweet and lovable cat. She’s very social and outgoing and would love to be welcomed in a new home.

Story
Hi! My name is Sis! I'm a 2 year old tortie girl who is looking for a best friend to spoil me rotten! I want to be the only princess in my home. My favorite spot is your lap! I would do okay with older more respectful kids, but babies and little guys are a little too much for me. I have not been dog tested, but I probably wouldn't like to live with a dog that doesn't have good cat manners. I prefer MALE cats only. NO FEMALE CATS. I'm spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped! I've been FIV/FELV tested. I'm negative for both. My adoption fee is $85. The only thing I'm missing is YOU! Put in an application today!

Story
Sweet lap-loving old girl that is still very playful and affectionate once she warms up to you. She has been with our family for 15 years, since she was 8 weeks old. She has lived with 3 other cats, a dog, and a child, who is now very allergic to her and unfortunately we must find her a new home. It breaks our hearts to have to make this very difficult decision now, especially because of her age and we are all she has ever known. Looking for a warm lap to accept this sweet girl for the last few years of her life.

Story
Tabitha Jean (goes by Tabby) is a sweet, small (less than 10 pounds), and sassy 4 year old girl. She LOVES wet food (only cat food she will eat and gets very affectionate around food time lol), french fries, pizza, popcorn, and all kinds of meat. She can get adventurous trying to get food on the counter. She loves a good fluffy blanket and a warm place to sleep. She does not like dogs, and not the biggest fan of young kids. Currently our other 3 cats bully her sometimes and she just hinds under the bed. A calmer, quieter setting is definitely one she thrives in and she would need to be the only pet. A older person/couple would do, or even someone who lived alone! She is shy at first and needs time to build trust, but with the right person, I know she will warm up and want all of the love! She deserves to be spoiled like the little princess she is and it breaks my heart my home is not the home for her.

Story
Mama Mo is a sweet cat- she has lived a tough life outdoors after her owners moved away. She was a good mama to her kittens (all adopted and loving their new homes)! She is learning to trust people again- and can sometimes be a little spicy if you pet her past her allotted timespan (which only she is privy to).  She had a brief stint at Whisker Station, but that wasn't her jam- she was not at all aggressive with the other cats but prefers a quieter more laid back vibe. So now she is back with us in her favorite chair! She deserves the absolute best- a family (without young kids) that really understands and appreciates cat behavior as she does have a few quirks! I think she would be fine with non-aggressive dogs or cats. She is pretty much ignores the other animals in our home- a dog and 3 other cats.  Mo loves to be brushed and pet, but does not enjoy if you put your face close to her. She will let you know about it! Reach out if you would like more information on Mo! It is definitely worthwhile gaining her trust- she is a special kitty and deserves a special family of her own!July 18, 2024, 1:58 am

Story
Shorthaired older man who needs a person to love. Buster is looking for someone he can take care of and show his appreciation. Buster is an active boy for his age and loves to play. He get's along with other kitties if they are not overly aggressive and calm dogs. Buster has thyroid issues and is on meds twice daily. If he was an only kitty, a diet in very low sodium could possibly help eliminate this.July 18, 2024, 1:58 am
