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
Marley is a short haired American tuxedo cat. He's a very sweet cat, he enjoys playing or just laying around on the couch with you while you watch tv. He's not very big on being held but does love being rubbed. Marley is definitely an indoor cat, if he gets outside he is gone. Him and his brother both have no experience outdoors. His brother's name is Junior. Marley is good with other pets, but a little bit xxxx@xxxx.x is not a very demanding cat, it's a very relaxed cat likes to look out windows or the door and take naps. 50% of the time you won't even know he's around because he will be sleeping under a couch or heading away somewhere napping. Marley has a brother, Jr. Please consider adopting both, they have both been together since they were very small(less than 2 months old). I would prefer them to not be separated.

Story
Blossom and her brothers were dropped off on my coworker's porch in a crate when they were about 6 weeks old. I took the babies off her hands and have been fostering them since. One of the boys was adopted, leaving Blossom and Buttercup still in my care. The kittens are about 11 weeks old at this point. They're full of curiosity and spunk. I've introduced them to my adult cats, and they seem to get along well with other cats for sure- they just want to play. Blossom is very sweet and reserved, loves to be held and coddled up against your chest. She definitely has her moments of running around and getting the zoomies but all in all, she's pretty chill and mellow.

Story
Kuzco, for short, is an awesome companion for any home. He is just over 1 year old, found as a stray when he was a kitten, taken to Johnson County, and then Wake County SPCA where we adopted him from. He was very quick to come out of his shell and make himself right at home. Loves to follow us around the house, runs to greet us when we get home, and has nearly bottomless energy for his toys. There are no off limit petting spots on him, and when he plays he is gentle about it.

Story
Meet Fig, a charming young adult cat with a heart of gold. He has a wonderful brother named Fin and they are A M A Z I N G together! Despite their outdoor beginnings, these kitties have shown a remarkable affinity for indoor living, craving the warmth of human companionship. When first introduced to his foster home, Fig explored the entire area without fear and made his home in the cat tree. Fig & Fin's playful antics and boundless curiosity make them a joy to have around, and their affectionate nature ensures they'll bring endless love into their forever home. When Fig warms up, he'll jump in your lap and rub his head against you. He has a low purr and is a marvelous muffin maker. If you're searching for a duo of furry companions to brighten your days with love and laughter, look no further than Fig & Fin, they are ready to fill your home with warmth and whisker-tickling charm. Fig and Fin, love their big brother (or dad), Magic Milo. This trio is the sweetest and while we know it is a big ask... if you have the biggest heart, these sweet boys would love to be able to spend the rest of their life together. They love to lounge, play, and groom one another.

Meet Fin, an affectionate, sensitive soul that gets along with any other cat he's met! SUPER friendly and totally chill. He loves the ribbon wand! He can jump crazy high while chasing the ribbons. He enjoys playing fetch with toy mice and running through the cat tunnel to chase thrown mice. His brother, Fig, loves to wrestle with this guy and they have playful chirps while messing around. We really like that we can pick up this guy and gives him lots of love that he deserves. He enjoys being held and petted on his head and along his back. The window is a favorite spot to watch outside - we have a nice tree line behind his current home with deer, lots of birds, outdoor cat watching, and sooo many birds to chirp at through the glass. Fin enjoys lying next to Fig for cat naps as well. With his playful spirit and insatiable curiosity, Fin promises to bring endless joy and laughter to his new family. If you're in search of furry friends to brighten your days and warm your heart, look no further than Fin and Fig - they're ready to sprinkle your home with love and playfulness. Fin and Fig, love their big brother (or dad), Magic Milo. This house panther trio is the sweetest and while we know it is a big ask... if you have the biggest heart of hearts, these sweet boys would love to be able to spend the rest of their life together. They love to lounge, play, and groom one another. Their love will win!
