Story
Daisy is a spayed female gray tabby. She is approximately a year and a half old. We found her as a kitten under a piece of machinery at my work. She has been loving to me and my husband but she really does struggle with our children, who are all seven and under. She will allow them to pick her up and does not bite or scratch them but you can tell she is not a fan of it or the noise that fills out house most times. I feel like she is just not happy with the dynamic in our house and would be more suited to a home with a single person, couple or family with older, calmer children. I really want her to be happy in her environment and that has just not happened in our house, I think because of the busyness and the chaos that kids often bring.

Story
Due to unforeseen circumstances we find ourselves having to Rehome our sweet kitty, she has been with us since she was a kitten. Luna may take some time warming up to a new environment and people but once she does she loves to sit on your lap and just sleep. Especially if there are blankets involved, she loves to chase lasers and go after anything crinkly. She likes to find a “spot” and just stays there most of the time if cuddles aren’t an option. She’s fine with our 80 dog, and we used to have another cat that passed away a few years ago who she tolerated.. she’s not a huge fan of other cats but after an adjustment period has been fine with anything. We have an infant who had pulled her tail a few times and she will meow but hasn’t done anything past that so I believe she may do better in a home with no small children. She is 7 years old and is mostly black, she has a white spot on her chest and belly, she is on the smaller side maybe 7-10 lbs.

Story
Pros: - will snuggle with you - will allow you to pick her up once trusted - very good with litterbox and different types of litter - very soft - very silly/goofy - not a lot of hairballs Cons: - can be clingy - can be annoying/loud meower - is dumb (combo with very curious and clumsy, always watch when moving big items) - is clumsy (DOES NOT ALWAYS LAND ON HER FEET) - has no claw awareness Special: Azula started out wanting to be friends and socialize with other cats. Unfortunately has been bullied for many years and turned skittish, jumpy and not the greatest at socialization. It is my belief that in a very patient and loving environment with no cats or chill/friendly/no bully cats she will eventually lose skittishness and become overall friendlier to cats and happier. Personality: Doesn’t like dogs or loud noises. Instinct is to hide around new people. Startles easily. Has zoomies about 1-3 times a day. Gets overstimulated very fast.

Story
Tiger was abandoned and needs a home. He is so sweet and loves people and pets. He doesn't need a lot of attention just a safe place to call home. If I didn't already have a full home I would keep him but I can't. He loves to be pet and loves to eat. Please give him a chance.
