Story
Remy is 8.5 weeks old. Brought him home with another stray and found out my small kid has a bad allergy so we need to rehome. I have been cutting his nails with treats and he is litter trained. He is funny and has the zoomys but is also sweet. Has first shots, and has had a wormer/flea preventative from the vet. Can come with some cat supplies.

Story
Bonded Pair Max and Ruby are Looking for their Forever Home 😺 😺❤️ 🏠 Max and Ruby's owner relocated last month and was unable to move with them. We've been taking care of them since. No, we can't give them back. The owner doesn't want them. They're a bonded, 1-year old, brother and sister pair located in the RDU area in NC. They're looking for their forever home. Yes, they're named Max and Ruby like the cartoon 🐰🐰 I live with my husband and 2 cats and we're unable to keep 2 additional ones long-term. We're hoping to find a home for them ASAP before we fall even more in love with them. We're already getting attached! Max Max loves to explore! He's very cautious (aren't they all?) but is open to discovering new things, unlike his sister Ruby who growls at feathered wands and squeaky toys. His latest flea treatment was on 04/23. He doesn't have any fleas. This was more of a preventative application. He is neutered, and had his Rabies and Distemper (FVRCP) vaccines.

We found Felippe as a stray in our neighborhood. He is so sweet!!! We got him neutered, vaccinated, and flea treated on May 22, 2024. Tried rehoming him with a friend with a dog and 2 older xxxx@xxxx.x did not go well. We would keep him but our 2 other resident cats cannot stand him. He is such a precious, sweet cuddler!!! He has so much love to give if he can be the only pet in the home. He slept in bed with us when we had him in the week after surgery. He purrs alot, just super sweet. Having lived on the streets for just over a year now (we think born April 2023), he might need/enjoy going in and out.

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
Lilly was adopted 6 years ago from family in NY. She is declawed, front and back. Her personality is very laid back. She is very loving but is not very vocal or attention seeking. She did very well with visiting dogs. She did well with one cat, but we feel she would be best suited as the only cat in the home as she does not interact with our other cats and prefers to be alone. She has been treated with fluoxetine with good results and is on a special diet to avoid crystals in her urine.

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.
