Story
MADDIE - She is lovable, playful and super loyal. She loves to play fetch. I throw a small lightweight ball and she runs to catch it and brings it back to me so I can do the throwing again. She is microchiped and neutered. She is just over 4 yrs old..born 1-10-20. She has lived with another cat for all 4 yrs with me. She has her nails and I found a person to come to my home every 6 weeks to trim them. I can give you her name. I have medical issues that will be requiring major surgery and after surgery will more then likely for months after surgery not be able to take care of my girls. I have had cats all my life and to have to give them up before it is an end of life issue for them and it is breaking my heart. Looking for a loving home for Maddie as she will bring joy to where ever she goes to live.

Pepper is lovable and a quiet cat. She loves to be close to you. She will want to be near you amd she loves to gently touch your cheek with her paw and stroke your face. I have never found that in all my years of having cats. She has her nails and I have a local groomer that comes to the house every 6 weeks. She is great and inexpensive. I can give you her name. She has lived with other cats all her life. She is a bit of a loner, but never aggressive, just does her thing.. I in need of surgery and after that surgery will not be able to care for her for months. She is a senior cat. I got her from a friend as a company for me. She said she was 6 at xxxx@xxxx.x was in 2022..she is basically around 8 yrs old..good health.

Story
Murphy is my mother's cat. My mother is in an assisted living facility which allows pets. However, my mother is no longer capable of adequately caring for Murphy. I live in another state and cannot take Murphy because my wife is allergic to cats. Murphy is a sweet, mellow, indoor lap cat. I think Murphy is about 10 years old.

Story
Nico is a 3 y/o boy who needs to be indoors/outdoors. He’s very intelligent with lots of personality and love to offer. He would be perfect for someone who could let him spend a lot of time outside during the day and give him lots of love when he comes back in from his adventures. He does best in a low stress household, as he tends to take on the stress of those living with him, resulting in urinary problems. Being outside helps keep his stress low. He’s a people cat, very cuddly several times a day, and passionate about snack time. He’s lived with both dogs and cats, and loves cuddling with them whenever he could. He’s a wonderful cat, and I wish we could keep him, but circumstances have made us realize he would be happier and healthier with resources we aren’t able to provide right now. It’s very important to us that he finds a good home, so please message me if you’re able to care for such a special, lovable kitty. The adoption fee will be donated to Brother Wolf, a no kill shelter.

I goy Ivy from a couple who found her as a kitten, living behind a dumpster. She has been with me since she was a kitten and is a very sweet, snuggly girl. She loves attention and still plays, especially with her sister. She doesn’t meow much, except for feeding time of course, and is a really great companion. I am planning on doing a lot of traveling and would love to find her and her sister (whom she is bonded with) a new loving and quiet home.

Story
This sweet little girl loves affection and will follow you around for your attention. She loves to be scratched behind her ears and purrs when you love on her. She and her brother were living with an elderly woman that can no longer care for them. They liked to go outside during the day and then cuddle inside at night. They lived in a very rural area with plenty of room to run around and hunt mice in the field, so outdoor city life may not be the best environment for them. They have been together since birth so the ideal home would be able to accommodate both of them. They are about 4 years old and both have been spayed/neutered. They are currently nestled inside my garage, due to allergies in my home. With the warmer days approaching, I am desperately seeking a loving home for them.

This sweet little boy is timid at first but warms up to you quickly. He likes to play with a long rope and will bat at it if you hold it above him. He loves to be scratched and will purr when he's content with affection. He and his sister were living with an elderly woman that can no longer care for them. They liked to go outside during the day and then cuddle inside at night. They lived in a very rural area with plenty of room to run around and hunt mice in the field, so outdoor city life may not be the best environment for them.

I found my cat last year in a barn and took him in as I couldn’t find a home for him and he was a kitten. My pet is around 1 year 3 months old. He is very sweet and cuddly and loves to play. He’s gentle with children and other cats.

Story
Little gal started showing up during feeding time at the farm I used to work at. Her mom and a couple others from the litter were in an abandoned building down the road. Very friendly for a feral so I got her spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Been keeping her in my garage/basement when when it is cold, and otherwise she has been mostly a barn cat. Excellent mouse/vole hunter, but also indiscriminately murders any other wildlife for fun. She likes being outdoors but also very happy to be indoors sitting on a lap. She loves eating all sorts of things she should not eat out of the compost pile, and using garden beds as a litter box (but she will use litter box when indoors!). I recently took on a new job so feel I cannot give her the attention she deserves and that she would be better appreciated at another home. Born around 3/2022, weighs around 7lb. She likes hanging out with goats, dogs, cats, and humans that give her food and affection. Responds to her name (pronounced way-SUH)
