Story
Miso is 2 years old. He’s moved a-lot in his life and I had just acquired him a month ago. He is very much anxious around other animals and does not do well with most cats. He does adore affection but he definitely needs to warm up to you first. He needs a quiet home, with someone who can give him the attention and care he deserves. I recommend you have the utmost patience, as he takes a bit of time to adjust to anyone, but as long as you are quiet and understanding he warms up in no time!

Story

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
Pumpkin is 3 years old. She’s super cute and affectionate once she gets to know you (she’s a bit of a scaredy cat at first). Loves to play with little springs and balls and has no problem entertaining herself. She loves to cuddle and make biscuits. Would love for her to find a home where she can have all the love and attention she deserves. She is on gabapentin for feline hyperesthesia (her skin crawls and she needs it every 10-12 hours) and that can be given in pill form in her food or with a syringe in her mouth.

Story
Loki is a playful cat that loves cuddles. He’s about 3 years old and would love a home with other pets to play with. He speaks some Spanish and will listen to those commands to come and go. Isn’t interested in human food so he won’t go eating your food off the table. Unfortunately my infant son is allergic and will no longer be able to keep him and hope to find him a home where he will be loved.
