Story
Jiji is around 3 and a half-ish and I've had her since she was around 8 months old. I got her from a shelter. I originally got her to keep my other cat company, but unfortunately, she is very territorial. I have tried everything in the book to give her less anxiety about her space and other cats but she's never made progress. She HAS to be a solo cat! I'm not sure about dogs but she hasn't loved any of the ones she's met. She is also prone to UTIs when she is under a lot of stress so I'd recommend someone that doesn't work long hours. I'm very sad to get rid of her but she is causing the other cats in the household too much stress. Onto her positive qualities! She is an amazing cat. She is extremely loyal, playful, and a little mischievous. She takes a while to get warmed up to people sometimes but once she's bonded she will be your best friend. She likes to cuddle and sunbath. I'm really hoping someone with time and experience will be willing to take her.

Story
Amber Leaf and her sister, Autumn Leaf, are the sweetest little "cali-tabbies" you've ever seen. Found as strays with kittens in tow, they had a rough start to life. They're now super easy to please and happy to simply be out of the elements. Mixed in with her typical tabby stripes, Amber has orange flames throughout her coat, including a heart-shaped orange spot on her head and a little orange tip at the end of her tail. She is a really beautiful, petite little girl with green eyes and adorable, slightly knock-kneed back legs! Amber is the more outgoing of the pair, always a few steps ahead of her sis. She is incredibly calm and confident; unfazed by car rides, new locations, new faces, and loud noises. Give her 5 minutes to sniff around and it'll be like she's been there her whole life. Her favorite activities include relaxing in the sun, looking out the window, rolling onto her belly when offered pets, and "making biscuits" like it's her full time job (her sister is equally committed!). Give her a little head scratch or just say something sweet to her and she'll close her eyes and start kneading contentedly (check out the video!). Amber and Autumn are happy to snooze most of the day. They get the zoomies for about an hour each evening after dinner, where they "hunt" each other, climb their cat tower, and tumble around with enthusiasm. After that, they're ready for bed and sleep quietly through the night. Amber would love to cuddle with you in bed if allowed, especially when it's cold out, but would also be fine with her sister in their own area. They truly seem to be able to adapt to any situation, even expressing interest in befriending their foster house-mate, a 45 lb. dog. Amber and Autumn would love to be part of your family and are ready to make themselves at home!

Story
Link is 5 years old and I have had him since he was a kitten. He is one of the sweetest cats you will ever meet. He is not shy around strangers and will go right up to you and sit on your lap if you let him. If you feel like cuddling, just call him over and he will happily sit on your lap! He is very affectionate as well as very energetic! He loves being pet and chasing toys. He loves doing "cat-acro" where I put him on my feet and he hangs out in the air! I am rehoming him only because I am about to be traveling full-time and unfortunately just won't be able to care for him.

Story
Artemis is 3 years old. She is shy, but extremely affectionate and loving. She has benn raised alone, but would likely benefit from some feline companionship. She is still very playful. She has been indoor only, but has enjoyed time on the other side of an open screened window. I suffer from several disabilities, that has limited the amount of attention and playtime I can give her. She is a wonderful cat and deserves a loving home. Please help me find her the forever home she deserves.
