Story
Pallas is sweet and loving. I adopted her about 3 years ago, but I’m renting and my landlord won’t allow a pet. She’s great with my mom’s two smaller dogs and cat - we lived in the home with them for two years and she loved hanging out with the dogs! She likes to be held and will cuddle up with you on the sofa. She’s vocal and likes to have chats, which makes her great company for a single person. She’s well behaved, litter trained and not a scratcher.

Story
Khaki is currently 11 years old and spent her years helping to create a PTSD model on rats (she just ate wet food off the top of a plexiglass container lol). She’s a very sweet cat who loves to climb in your lap and flop at your feet. She loves pets and is great with slightly older, calmer kids! She’s fully vaccinated, house trained and is spayed. Even at her age, she’s still eager to follow you around and shower you with attention. She does prefer to be an only cat due to her upbringing, but she’s never been in fights with other animals just seems a little timid. I wish I could keep her, but I’m currently a college student and she is not allowed to stay in the dorms.

Story
This poor guy was abandoned by his family. They moved and just put him out on the street to fend for himself. The homeless people in the area began abusing him. A good Samaritan worried for his safety contacted us. He has been vetted and this sweet guy just can't catch a break. He is under 2 years old and is neutered, but is positive for FIV. (equivalent to HIV in humans). He can go on to live many years and lead a normal life with good nutrition and a low stress environment. Due to the virus it is recommended that he be in a home with no other cats, unless they too are infected. He is such a sweet boy. If you have a soft spot in your heart for needy and forgotten felines, please think about giving this gentle guy a loving home.

Story
Dad was found with his girlfriend and two kittens in an unsafe area by S IH-35. He got along well with his girlfriend and kittens, but they were scooped up and found homes. Dad was fixed and put back on the streets before anyone noticed how friendly he was! A nice human stepped in and noticed his health was deteriorating outside and had no constant source of food or water. He was taken inside to focus on his health. Turns out, he LOVES being around people! Dad thinks toys are ok but prefers getting pets and sitting next to a loving human or snuggling at night! Although Dad tested positive for FIV (weakened immune system), FIV cats tend to have normal life spans when cared for and the majority never experience complications. FIV is only transmitted to other cats through blood transfusions and serious penetrating bite wounds. FIV cannot be transmitted to humans or other animals. Dad would be the healthiest as an indoor cat but a bonus to have access to an enclosed outdoor space.

Percy is 5 months (born September 2). He's a very sweet, loving, and affectionate boy. He's playful (climbing & parkour apparently lol), fairly verbal. Loves to cuddle & be with his brother. I would prefer to keep them together, but he'd be okay with his person or with a friend!

Story
Cake is a sleepy cat that enjoys sleeping in bed and lounging around. She’ll walk up and ask for pets and then go about her day. She would make an excellent companion cat. She likes golden retrievers but no other breed of dog and she’s a bit feisty with other cats but will put up with them if she needs to. She loves food so we keep her on a special diet. She meows when you come home and loves ear scratches but only for as long as she’ll allow it. She will nip at you once she’s had enough. Cake is almost 5 years old. I’m hoping to find her a better home so we may grow ours.

Story
This is the sweet, affectionate, and playful Caraline! We call here Cara or Care Bear for short. She is about 3 years old and comes from a farm in Southern Ohio. Unfortunately, her dad recently passed away and we’re hoping to find her a new home this year. Cara is a wonderful cat who warms up to other animals pretty quickly after a little initial hesitation. She’s equally playful and chill, but loves a good playtime by chasing a laser or string in circles. She is a pretty vocal cat, it’s so adorable. She has a sweet, high-pitched voice and will answer to her name almost always. She tends to chatter at the birds, insects, and almost anytime you sneeze haha.
