This poor kitten was dumped in a field to fend for herself. She was starving and ran up to the first human she saw, while crying for help. This poor baby was still trying to nurse. She is about 6weeks old. She is FIV/FELV negative. She has gotten her first shots and has been dewormed. Gets along well with cats and dogs.

Monroe!! He's been neutered and microchipped has all of his vaccines including rabies.  Now he is ready for a home of his own.  He is a quiet kitty unless he doesn't have any water. He's playful and litterbox trained. His birthday is 3-19-2021, he has tested negative for feline aids and leukemia. He does have pectus excavatum, which is a common congenital malformation of the sternum.  His condition has not progressed to the point where any intervention was ever needed, such as surgery. His breathing and activity level are fine and his heart is not affected. Monroe has normal kitty  behavior. Will you make him a part of your home?

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
Arnold is a super friendly cat who loves people. He enjoys snoozing most of the day but when he’s up, he is playful and moderately active. He's a very confident kitty and loves to sit on a warm lap getting some pets. Although Arnold is primarily an indoor cat, he loves to be outside and an ideal home would have a yard or little backyard area or balcony where he could spend some time occasionally.

Story
Rosie is a very sweet and loving girl who likes to have one on one attention. She would do best in a home where there are no other animals. However, she is great with adults and kids. She does like her alone time in her cat tree and loves to play with toys that are on strings or have feathers. she loves to sit on the windowsill and sun and watch the birds. She also loves to cuddle at bedtime and lay with you in the bed whether you let her under the covers or sleep on your chest. Her behavioral issues come from our male cat that has been around since she was a kitten, they do not get along, and we have tried everything to make her comfortable however, she would do much better living in a household with no other animals. Please message me with any questions and I’m happy to answer them!
