Story
Peanut came to us July 2023 very malnourished. She had obviously had kittens. She would have died if we hadn't taken her in. Four weeks later she brought her kittens. We scheduled a spay but before the date she was pregnant again. We have fostered her through 2 litters and now she is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She's a wonderful kitty and we would keep her but our three geriatric cats are very mean to her.

Story
Taco is a 5 year old sweet boy we adopted from our local shelter. Unfortunately, our other cat will not stop attacking him after many many attempts at a slow introduction. Taco loves to cuddle, loves head scratches, and prefers to sleep under your pillow. He is great with other cats and has let our other cat bully him without ever fighting back :( He's up to date on all his shots and has no special diet or medications. He does have what we believe to be a plastic bb gun pellet stuck between his ears from before he was rescued by the shelter. We've taken him to the vet and it does not seem to be bothering him at all so we opted to leave it be. He's shy at first but warms up within a week. He loves pillow forts and will come out as soon as he gets head pats. We do not know how he is with dogs but we're assuming he'd be just fine based off how he was around an aggressive cat. He's fine around babies as well but we have not seen him around older kids.

Story
Sandy was born under our house in a litter of six kittens. She is sweet, well behaved and loves attention but is not big on being picked up or held. We would prefer to rehome her as a bonded pair with her companion Ash. Ash was found as a kitten outside possibly abandoned or lost. He is a little shy but does love attention, hanging out on the couch with you and can be picked up and held once he warms up to you. We often find the two cuddling together for their naps. Sandy is approximately 2 years old and Ash is between 1 and 2 years old. Unfortunately our older cat has become very aggressive towards other cats in the house and we feel it best to rehome these two as it may be difficult to rehome an aggressive cat. Homing fee is needed just to make sure the adopter is reputable. We would prefer an experienced cat owner due to Ash's shyness.

Story
Pumpkin was found at a preschool looking for food and attention at about 1 year old. He wanted to be picked up and held and wasn’t afraid of the excited children on the playground. Pumpkin continued to be fearless as he explored his new home and made friends with the existing 70 pound dogs in the house. His fearless can get him into trouble but also makes him very resilient. He is also very food motivated. Pumpkin will happily play and cuddle with dogs, cats, kids, and adults. Pumpkin's play can get rough and appear aggressive but he can often be redirected to toys. He loves to be held and carried, even belly up like a baby. While I was in initially managing my allergies, circumstances have changed and I’m needing to focus more on the health of family members.
