Story
Misu is a female American shorthair gray and white kitten. She was rescued in January 2024 in Charlotte alongside her bonded sister Lakota. We estimate her birth month to be August 2023. Misu has received her 1-year rabies vaccination, and is spayed, and up-to-date on vaccines. She has been combo tested (is negative) and received both FeLV and FVRCP vaccines. While we don't know all of her history, Misu was found abandoned and underweight. Thankfully, has been given a chance at the good life now in our program -- she LOVES wet food and demands snacks mulitple time a day. With her name meaning "babbling brooke," she loves having her belly rubbed and will reward you with purrs. While she is the shier one of the two, she is an affectionate and gentle girl who will jump into your lap to be pet. She loves being close by Lakota to bird watch, nap and groom -- often grooming Lakota too :) Misu is in foster care with exposure to other cats and does well with them. She is required to go with her sister Lakota - but trust us, when we say these two are better than one. Our bonded pairs are a discounted rate of $325.

Story
Kitty is a sweet, loving 4-year old who has only had one owner. She was found as a baby when she was abandoned by her mother in a parking lot. She is a wonderful playmate to her best friend Harper, a Dobie/Pitbull mix. Unfortunately due to my a change in my living situation I will not be able to keep Kitty and want for her to find a caring home where she can get the love and attention that she deserves. She has a very sweet and funny disposition, is well trained with the litter box (never an accident) and loves to look out the windows at all her bird "friends." She is healthy, not a picky eater, enjoys cuddling at night, and enjoys being with people during the day.

Story
Trix is a super sweet tuxedo kitty who doesn't let her missing leg slow her down. We've had her for 2.5 years after adopting her from a shelter and our other kitty does not get along with her. We've tried everything to get our tabby to get along and nothing worked. We love Trix. She loves to be pet and will come right up demanding pets. She is good around kids and allows our 3 year old to pet her. She is vocal and loves to have conversations. She does have a touch of that tuxedo sass but it only shows up in her dislike of being picked up and the occasional warning nibble if she doesn't want to be pet. She loves to play with pretty much anything she can find and also loves to run around. She is capable of going up and down stairs and does not have any issues getting around due to her missing leg. You will never find her on one of your counters because that is the only thing high enough she can't jump up on ( she can get up onto chairs and the cat tower fine).

Arnold is a super friendly cat who loves people. He enjoys snoozing most of the day but when he’s up, he is playful and moderately active. He's a very confident kitty and loves to sit on a warm lap getting some pets. Although Arnold is primarily an indoor cat, he loves to be outside and an ideal home would have a yard or little backyard area or balcony where he could spend some time occasionally.

Story
Coco was adopted from the litter of a neighborhood cat where I grew up. She was adopted as a kitten into a loving home. She is a very playful lap cat that loves to be scratched and pet. She does not like to be picked up but is affectionate in other ways, such as giving her owner an endless bath. She is incredibly sweet, never bites or scratches and gets along very well with other cats. She is looking for a loving home that will show her all of the attention she deserves.
