Story
Gigi is a loving indoor/outdoor female cat. She is house trained like a dog and can also use a litter box. I have free food, litter boxes and litter. She loves to come and go inside and outside. I have an HOA which requires her to be on a leash when outside. I have cancer and mobility issues and cannot walk her outside. She is about 4 years old and spayed. Thanks.

Story
We have had Murphy since she was a kitten - adopted in Ca. She is a beautiful tortoiseshell/calico mix. She is very loving and sweet when no other cat is in the house. She will lay in your lap and purr instantly. She's confident, curious and not too shy of new people. She is very communicative and will wrap around your legs to say hello. We moved to NC and took in another female from a kill shelter. We moved to an area that has a lot of community cats and we foster kittens that we trap and took in a sick friendly community cat to nurse him back to health. This is causing her anxiety, frustration, she is scared and not handling all of the changes well even though we have followed the appropriate introductions. I feel that it is our responsibility to protect her, but I can not rehome everyone. It's not an easy decision.We have a Golden Retriever and she is fine with him but may not like a dog that wants to play, I want to find her a loving home so that she can thrive and feel safe.

Story
Oreo is a sweet and social little boy born mid September. He is playful, loves to climb and is used to other kitties so would be an awesome addition to your lonely cat or puppy at home. Oreo was born inside a home and his mother was combo tested and is negative for Fiv and Felv, so Oreo is good to go as well! Oreo's neuter and vaccines are included in the adoption fee. Please email info@angelstotheanimals.org for more information/application or to arrange a meet and greet!!. Must be 22 to apply.

Story
I am desperate to find my mom's cats a home. They are siblings and very attached to each other. We would like for them to stay together and to be indoor cats as they haven't been out since they were 1 week old. We don't feel they would fare well separated or outside. Sarge (male) & Trooper (female) are looking to give love. They loss their human mom (my mother) last year. Born April 2018, both are fixed, vaccinated. They have everything they need except human companionship. They come with toys, beds, monthly food and litter delivered by Chewy. Mom bottle fed them when their mom was killed. They gave her a lot of companionship after my special needs sister passed away. They had a very difficult time when mom passed. They have stopped meowing but still seem to be looking for mom. It isn't fair for them to just exist if they can have someone to love on them.

Story
Olive was rescued at roughly 3-4 weeks old alongside her brother and both of them were bottlefed. She was always independent from the beginning. She likes attention and snuggles but would rather sunbathe in her own private space. She is 7 months old now and is still very low maintenance and easygoing. She can be cautious of new environments at first, but is great at adapting to make herself as comfortable as possible. Olive is a great companion for owners who want a cat that can sit back and go with the flow.
