Story
A BONDED SPECIAL 2-for-1: Meet Busta Rhymes & Sunshine! Sunshine is our tabby babe that’s spunky and full of life. She's the playful partner in this duo and obsessed with all cats. She is more timid and takes a bit to warm up to, but Churus are her fav and she will come right up to you for this treat. She’s not quite a lap/cuddle cat (yet) but she’s full of love and doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. Busta Rhymes is a charming orange and white lad who was abandoned and dumped practically blind! We had to remove one of his eyes but were able to save the other one. He is now thrivin’ with his bestie, Sunshine! He is such a sweetie and loves scratches under his chin. Together, they create a harmonious symphony of feline friendship that's too hard to resist and are looking for a forever home where they can continue their paw-some adventures together. They are inseparable and always budding heads and playing chase. Busta and Sunshine are the purr-fect pair for anyone seeking double the love. Don't miss your chance to adopt this dynamic duo and make your home their forever stage. Both are FIV+ which means they can live with FIV- cats (like they do now) and not infect the FIV- buddies according to the Dep’t of Veterinary Clinical Sciences. That said, they do require grain-free quality food and some check-ups at the vet once in a while. As soon as you meet Busta and Sunshine you will know how amazing they are!

Story
Meet Luna and Hagrid! Having survived a decade on the unforgiving streets, Luna and Hagrid are bonded as heck. They do EVERYTHING together. Incredibly low maintenance, so much so that they don’t even require your lap or pets. Rather, they just require time and patience and a safe, quiet, and loving home to live out their golden years. • HAGRID is the big, timid guy. His genealogy is unknown. Likely descended from a seal family, but others say he bears a striking resemblance to a beached whale. Passion for treats. In fact, he has curated a special Treat Dance, which is initiated by standing in front of his “treat tray,” making eye contact, and tapping his monster fluffer paw. Truly remarkable stuff, 10/10. • LUNA is the smaller spunk master. Obsessed with cat grass. Hagrid sends her out to secure the perimeter and ask for treats when he doesn’t feel like doing his world-famous Treat Dance. She’s always got Hagrid’s back. Not only does Luna offer him the best snuggles, but she also watches his back and stands guard when he’s eating. Stellar bestie! If you are looking for a low maintenance duo to join your family, let’s chat!

Story
We got Gilbert in 2016 from Nashville. He was 5 then, so he is probably around 12 now. He's been nothing but a perfect sweetheart. Loves cuddling and being pet. Very affectionate. Not shy around people. We recently learned that our newborn daughter is allergic to cats, that is the only reason why we reluctantly give him up. We are simply looking for a home where he'll be loved and cared for.

Story
I brought Bome from a refuge center in Philadelphia in May 2021. She was only 10 months old when I brought her. From the first encounter at the center, she has always been friendly and never shy of interacting with other people. She is clingy and she likes to talk. She loves food so much that she jumps out from her cat tower every time food is served from the dispenser. I still want to keep her till the end of her time but my cat allergy has gotten worse over time as it accumulated to the point where I need to restrain myself from socializing. I am looking for someone who loves cat and is willing to share their life with Bome. I am looking for a responsible owner who is willing to carry out the love I have for Bome.

Story
Hello her name is Boba and I think she was born on May 1, 2022. I found a crying Boba in my backyard few months ago and I have been taking care of her until now. Boba is a very cute and attractive cat with most of her hair color is gray and her front feet, hind legs, and tail tips white as points. Boba is sociable, so when a new people visit your house, she likes to approach friendly and play with new people. Also when I come back from outside, she always comes out to the front door and welcomes me. I want to stay with Boba but recently my cat allergy reaction got worse so I decided I couldn't stay with her anymore.. So I hope the new wonderful family stays happy with Boba. Boba has recently been vaccinated, including a rabies shot, and has a microchip. If you want to live with Boba then I'll give you vaccination papers. Also I can provide her an automatic feeder, water fountain, litter box with litter and scratching post she's using if you want.

Story
This listing is for TWO cats - (Dosa) can only be re-homed with her sister (Raven). They are great cats, about 18 months old. We have three kids and they are amazing with them - no aggression or scratching. They LOVE to be in the same room with you and will follow you around the house. They are purely indoor cats and are potty trained. They are happy to snuggle on your lap while you watch tv and are willing to be picked up and carried around (even though they don't love it). They are basically very friendly and happy sisters. They do NOT like being left alone for more than 2-3 days at a time as they are very people focused. We have to re-home them because we are doing a big house renovation that will take almost a year and they will HATE all that disruption. I think it will be kinder if we can find them a family/person who can keep them in a calmer manner than we will be able to... We are also happy to give you their litter boxes, cat tree and any unused food or litter we have.
