Story
Due to allergies and new lifestyle changes I’m not home on the weekends and Milo deserves a family that can give him all the love and attention! Milo is very sweet and social. He loves to cuddle, on the couch in your lap, and even at night sleeping next to you in your bed. I always say he has a dog’s personality but in a cats body. He gets excited and happy when you get home from work by running and meowing to you and purring and rubbing against your leg. He loves to say hi to friends and anyone who visits. He’s not a run and hide under the bed type of cat. He’s very sweet and friendly. He has his claws but does pretty good at letting me clip them. He doesn’t love being held or having his belly rubbed but he looooooves being pet on his head and his back. He does great at the vet too, they always love him and say he’s so easy to care for. He does great for car rides too. He’s a very chill and easy going cat. Milo is on a prescription diet and does best with his automatic feeder.

Story
Got this lovely cat at the onset of pandemic. She is a sweet, docile cat which does not interact with people she does not know. She is not a lap cat but will sit beside me or at my feet. I moved last August and it is not a good environment for her. She does not get along with the cat on the other half of my duplex. She has gotten more social since the move but the other cat is a constant issue. That family has children and does not want to rehome its cat.

Story
Mittens is being surrendered to our rescue due to too many animals in the home. She is utd on vaccinations & spayed. She is an independent cat, who will snuggle with you occasionally. She might need a little work with litter training, it is intermittent, but it is probably due to the number of cats in the home vs. the number of litter boxes. She is about 3 years old and weighs about 8lbs.

Story
Bubba is one of three cats in a home where owner went to assisted living. He is three years old and was born on her porch!!! He is shy but very loving once he gets to know you- he was brought inside in June of 2021 with a sister who is already placed! Is accustomed to sleeping with owner or nearby. He is all black with yellow eyes and is not declawed. Think he might do well as only cat but has lived with 2-3 other cats and 1-2 dogs!!!

Story
Io is clever, fearless, and loves to play! She's good at keeping herself entertained with her favorite toys but loves to come snuggle when she is done. Very soft fur, and loves to be petted. Pull out a teaser wand and watch her flip to catch it!! Part of a litter of 4 siblings that were found abandoned by their mother at a young age and beat the odds to make it this far in perfect health. She is now 3 months old. She is great with being handled, and is friendly towards new people. We're looking to re-home her now that she is old enough, as we already have an adult cat who is not fond of little siblings. Ideal home is one that will only keep her indoors, make sure she gets vet checkups and will not declaw her. We'd love to find someone who will love her as much as we would if we could keep her. Vet records are available. Needs to be spayed at 4 to 6 months (too young currently)

Story
Fawkes is very vocal, playful and energetic! He will let you know when it's play time and when it's dinner time with his very distinct funny drawn out meow. He is a brown tabby with a while belly, chest and white paws like socks! We already had 2 cats of our own and thought another would be nice, however, Fawkes came from a foster as a kitten while our current 2 cats came from rescues from hoarding situations. Our one cat Joni has made it clear she does not like him at all but will tolerate him day to day. Our other cat Saber is getting older and purely can't keep up with Fawkes energy! There is one small problem with Fawkes, he tends to pee on carpets. We believe it may be a territorial thing due to our other cat not getting along with him so well. We hope he can be trained out of this either in a one cat home or in a home without carpets around. He has never done it anywhere else, literally only our area rugs and carpets. We apologize for the initial inconvenience.
