Story
She was a lonely kitten outside and approached us for help. We couldn't take her in because we have a large dominant dog. She stayed outside. She had to assert herself when she lived outside for survival and from other cats. The winter came so I brought her to my moms house 2yrs ago. We had to keep her in a room there because she wanted to chase my moms cat who was never exposed to any other cats before. I think she needs to be an only pet, or cat. She is the sweetest kitty. She is shy and nervous but super friendly. She has never tried to scratch me. I have always treated her with respect. She likes watching tv. She doesn't try to go outside, I think she's nervous of being stuck outdoors again. I have toys and all kinds of nice accessories for her. I spoiled her. She is very appreciative. She doesn't like being pet on her back much I think it's a sensitive area. I bath her with a damp wash cloth and she loves that. She doesn't snuggle but she loves being around me. Loves cat grass

Story
I acquired Tucker from a family member who needed to rehome him. However, I realized after having him that I was allergic to him. He is about 8 years old. He likes to snuggle up with you. He does have some random bits of playful behavior. I currently live in an apartment and realized the small space may be causing him anxiety. I want him to go to a home with space away from people. He is a relatively independent cat that does not need lots of attention. He is very skittish around new people but warms up after some time. He requires some patience when getting adjusted to new settings.

Story
My daughter adopted Mama and her 2 kittens, Lulu and Macy. These 3 cars were found under a truck in East Orange, NJ. They were adopted from a foster. They have never been separated. The kittens still snuggle with Mama. Would love to keep them together. Mama is very laid back and enjoys being brushed and loves attention. Lulu is very loving and likes to be petted and brushed. Macy is a bit shy and is always found snuggling with Mama or Lulu. My daughter passed away last year and I can’t afford to care for them. They are beautiful cats and deserve a loving home. Hopefully a home where they can be together.

Story
It was a dark and stormy night when Van Gogh scratched at the patio door of his foster home. He was obviously someone's pet in the past, as he is very congenial, getting along with both the younger and older cats in the home. Van Gogh gets the zoomies and loves to chase and to be chased by his feline friends. Van Gogh, with his cute goatee, loves to be petted and will jump up on the bed to greet the morning and his foster mom.Van Gogh, with his cute goatee, is ready to go to his forever home. Do you have room for this sweet boy?

Story
Moon is a delightful and affectionate cat known for his love for humans and his sociable nature. He thrives on consistent routines, enjoying a mix of play and regular feeding times. His favorite toy is a feathered wand, reflecting his curious and brave personality. Moon enjoys laying on shoulders and doesn't mind being picked up, responding well when called. His energetic and friendly personality makes him a fun to be around. I am surrendering my cat, Moon, because he does not get along with other cats. This is an issue because I have another cat and they fight often.
