Story
My sweet baby cat Monkey is about to turn three in September. I am about to move soon and my living situation will not allow pets. I do not want to turn him into the shelter as they will euthanize him if he doesn’t get adopted within a certain period. I truly want him to have the best shot. I will pay for his food and litter to start you off and I will pay to neuter him before he goes to your home. About him: He loves toys and is an active boy. Very loving and will always follow you around when he is intrigued. He is scared of loud noises and he will get anxious. He just needs his time alone and he is alright. He does not love big dogs but I have not tried him around a smaller animals. He is a sweet man and loves to be sung too. He prefers soft chin rubs and will demand attention when he wants it. No adoption fee because I want him to have a loving home.

Story
Handsome is a very particular cat, he makes it well known you must earn his trust first...but once you do this big boy makes the reward well worth the effort. He will be the first one in bed at night and his choosen place is in a leg curve or propped up on one like it is an armed chair. He has the funniest voice to come out of such a large cat and will gladly demonstrate his agility skills when any stringed toy is presented. Handsome is very affectionate to his cat family but prefers to seek human affection on his own terms, making it very obvious by meowing or rolling back and forth in front of your feet. Handsome was relocated to a second foster home a few months ago and is getting along well with other foster cats in the home.  He has also been very loving to the foster kittens in the home. ##1191272##

Story
I previously came from a feral colony. My ear was clipped when I was spayed and released back. I eventually made my way to a kind lady that would feed me.  I am very sweet and when I want attention I will sit and stare patiently until you hold out your hand. I enjoy flopping myself on the floor when you rub me and flipping side to side. I literally get along with all cats because I am very secure with myself and unphased.  ##1370779##

Luey was rescued as a kitten from Charlotte.  He is now an adult.  He gets along with other cats and kittens,  andenjoys hanging out on top of the cat tree.  He is very entertaining and a bit of a troublemaker.  He has been known to eat human food, especially bread and tortillas.   Apply online at triadcat.org. ##1191270##

Story
Sammy Davis is a super affection and incredibly smart tuxedo kitty. He was born in his foster home (to his Russian Blue mom who had SEVEN tuxedo babies) and it was originally decided he may do best just staying in the "shy cat" room as he was super sensitive and didn't do well at fairs or when people visited. But as time has gone on, it's been established he would be much more adoptable than originally thought. In fact, he now ADORES attention. Carry him, let him lap sit for hours, let him love bite for even more attention. He's SUPER affectionate. So much so, now, that he may be a bit of a bully to other cats who also want human attention. It just took him a good while to figure it all out. He does do well with other cats as long as they are the absolute alpha OR absolutely ok with him being the alpha kitty. He's actually kind of a ninny. He will submit to alpha cats but will kind of bully submissive cats to compete for the attention he now desires. So he either needs to be alpha to all or complete beta to one (he will literally "bow down" his head to the alpha...it's actually kind of sweet...but he will "bully" the ones beneath him if he feels he has to compete for attention). A house with lots of dynamics may prove hard for all, as his foster home can attest to since there are so many in it. He does hide when visitors come but after a bit he will come out to see what the fuss is about. His foster mom adores him and doesn't want to let him go but now that he has blossomed she realizes it would be best for him to get a home where he could get more individual attention. He loves to play with toys/wands and he will go absolutely nuts for catnip (TikTokers this is the catnip cat for you!). You will not regret bringing this life into yours! ##1972974##
