Story
Gigi is a loving indoor/outdoor female cat. She is house trained like a dog and can also use a litter box. I have free food, litter boxes and litter. She loves to come and go inside and outside. I have an HOA which requires her to be on a leash when outside. I have cancer and mobility issues and cannot walk her outside. She is about 4 years old and spayed. Thanks.

Story
We have had Murphy since she was a kitten - adopted in Ca. She is a beautiful tortoiseshell/calico mix. She is very loving and sweet when no other cat is in the house. She will lay in your lap and purr instantly. She's confident, curious and not too shy of new people. She is very communicative and will wrap around your legs to say hello. We moved to NC and took in another female from a kill shelter. We moved to an area that has a lot of community cats and we foster kittens that we trap and took in a sick friendly community cat to nurse him back to health. This is causing her anxiety, frustration, she is scared and not handling all of the changes well even though we have followed the appropriate introductions. I feel that it is our responsibility to protect her, but I can not rehome everyone. It's not an easy decision.We have a Golden Retriever and she is fine with him but may not like a dog that wants to play, I want to find her a loving home so that she can thrive and feel safe.

Story
Olive was rescued at roughly 3-4 weeks old alongside her brother and both of them were bottlefed. She was always independent from the beginning. She likes attention and snuggles but would rather sunbathe in her own private space. She is 7 months old now and is still very low maintenance and easygoing. She can be cautious of new environments at first, but is great at adapting to make herself as comfortable as possible. Olive is a great companion for owners who want a cat that can sit back and go with the flow.

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).

Story
Ghost, a gray cat abandoned at the local CMPD shelter, his past shrouded in mystery. Despite his tumultuous history, Ghost found solace in the care of the his current owner, who ensured he remained up-to-date on his vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. He struggled with behavioral issues around female cats, but he remains a friendly companion to humans and a non-picky eater. He is about a year old who is perfectly balanced between playful and cuddly. His favorite toys are string toys and any toy he can carry around his mouth for his new adventures.

Story
Chester has, until now, had a hard life. He lived in a colony outside for years. The lady feeding the colony requested euthanasia when he tested positive for both Feline AIDS and Feline Leukemia. Despite the diagnosis, Chester is healthy and vigorous. He is a healthy weight, has clear eyes, eats well, uses his litter box, and plays with his toys. He is also very loving and craves attention, which of course he did not get all those years of living outside. We know that Chester still has a lot of love to give to the right family. Please help us help him. For more information or an adoption application, contact Nancy Foltz at 704-616-4904 or NEFoltz@Yahoo.com
