Story
Denny’s is a very loving 4-year-old boy who became aggressive with our other cat when she had to get surgery. He lost her scent and now attacks her and gets agitated when he even smells her. He is great with people and needs to be in a home with NO other animals EVER. He loves attention, to play, soft food, belly rubs, and climbing on his tower. We love him dearly but he is attacking our special needs cat too much for him or her to be happy in our home. PLEASE help us keep him in a loving home.

Story
In March 2024, my family found a pregnant stray cat wandering around my grandfathers house, we took in the mother and she had 5 kittens. We have been caring for the kittens ever since and are now looking for homes for them since they are old enough. Milo is one of the 5, and has a unique cream colored coat (dilute orange). He is super sweet and affectionate and gets along well with other cats! He was born on March 20th, 2024, so he is about 3.5 months old. I would honestly love to keep him myself, but I already have 2 other cats and just cant afford to have a third, so I've been fostering him in my home until Milo finds his forever home.

Story
Fredrico is a 3-year-old solid black cat. He is a BIG boy that loves people and likes to rub and give love bites. He is playful and funny. He gets a little bit overstimulated when he's around other cats and takes it out on his tail. He doesn't bite it but just gives it a good whomping, of course he lets out a huge scream just before he attacks it. We feel that Fredrico would do best in a home without other cats. He just needs his humans to boss around and nibble on. ** Adoption fee of $140 includes spay/neuter, vet visits, deworming, and shots. ** Adoption application: mercyrescue.org

Story
Squeaks is a beautiful orange tabby male who was born around Jan 2023. He was found with a wound on his tummy which required surgery and brought into a foster home. Squeaks was born outdoors and is shy with new folks. He lives with his foster mom and dad and their two cats. He is devoted to his foster parents. Squeaks follows them around and is a real lap cat. He is playful and loving. He loves to play with the other two cats in the household. He likes toys and would do well with any family who puts in time to gain his trust. Orange cats are thought to be friendlier and more affectionate than other cats. They tend to be snuggly. Some orange tabbies are so affectionate that they are often cat-egorized as “velcro” kitties. **Adoption fee of $140 includes spay/neuter, vet visits, deworming, and shots. ** Adoption Application: mercyrescue.org

Story
I found him on a back country road at night. He came running right up to me! He did great for a bath and nail trim that night and loves sleeping next to someone. He’s been eating and drinking well and is very curious about other cats and dogs. He’s been very playful with some toys.

Story
I am the black male of two siblings. My sister's name is LuLu. We are seven months old. We enjoy playing with each other and with our toys. I love attention and getting loving but my sister, LuLu, has some differences. She requires a little more patience to come around in a new environment. I feel that we would be better if we were adopted together because of our bond and my sister needs some support from me to have a smoother adjustment to our forever home, but we can be separated if absolutely needed. If you would be interested in giving us our forever home, here is some information you would need to know: Our adoption fees would be $75 each if adopted separately, but if you would like to keep us together, the adoption fee would be reduced to 50% off to cover a portion of our expenses for the rescue. The rescue will also provide some essentials we would need in our new home.
