Story
Juvia can be very shy. It took some time for her to get used to me when I first got her in 2020, but she was young in a new place. She does love pets, but on her terms. Otherwise she'll walk away from you. She will eat dry or canned food. Treats she's a bit fickle with. I've learned to put them in her food bowl and she might eat it then. She loves toys with strings or feathers on the end of a stick or a laser pointer. Very mellow and to herself, but when she wants attention she lets you know. She'll walk up to you and start tapping on your arm to give her attention. In terms of other animals, she's relatively fine with dogs, no issues there. She's lived with her sister(cat) the whole time. So cats are fine. No interactions with kids to note. Scared of new people, so she will hide, but in time is fine. She's not fond of being carried. She has used claws to get out of arms without wanting to harm you, only thing I can think of as a caution. Hoping to find a someone who can love her tons.

Story
Buddy is a 13 year old Silver Tabby American Shorthair. We have had him since a kitten and he is a lover boy. He loves to cuddle, nap in the sun, purr loud and proud, eat, and to sleep as close as possible to his humans. Our living arrangements have changed and we sadly won't be able to take him with us. Buddy is used to living with 2 dogs. He does not do well with other cats. We recently had his senior kitty vet check up and other than missing several teeth (dental procedure 2 years ago), and kitty arthritis, he is very healthy.

Story
Walter is a sweet, playful guy. He's a great nap partner and movie watching companion. He's very athletic when the feather toy comes out and likes a good sprint through the house every now and then. Otherwise, he's happy on the couch next to you or on a cozy chair. He tolerates nail trims and loves to be brushed. The only thing he doesn't like are other pets in the house, unfortunately. He needs to be the only pet. He's easy going and very loving.

Story
Wiggliam is part of a bonded pair with his brother Boyd (profile: https://www.adoptapet.com/pet/41790809-portland-oregon-cat). I have been taking care of them since my sister died in February. Wiggliam is 7 years old and is a very big handsome boy (19 pounds of snuggles.) He is shy sometimes but usually likes being around people and will often cuddle up to his brother and his favorite humans. He sometimes nibbles people when he wants attention and it is cute. He doesn't like being picked up and would rather just come up to you himself. He likes to sleep in boxes. They've been to the vet recently and the vet recommended they get one more shot later this year to bring their vaccines up to date. Aside from their special diet (see below) they are healthy boys. They like to spend time with people and they particularly like to sleep next to people, so this would be a plus if they could have this in their new home.

Story
Thomas showed up at my door as a skinny kitten and has been loved to pieces ever since. He's now fixed, vaccinated, chipped, and ready for his forever home. Thomas is a goofy, social butterfly who loves attention! He's playful, purrs like a motor, and loves to give "high fives." This sweet boy lives for snacks and will let you know it's dinner time by putting his arms up in the air for attention! He loves catnip, laser pointers, and is obsessed with green beans. He needs some regular outdoor time. Thomas spent too much of his life outside and is sad to not have access anymore. There are too many coyotes on my farm to let him out, and he's become depressed and distressed in his need to go outside again. A home for him should have a yard or catio (he's also "leash trained" for walks). He's gotten along well with my foster kitten and my elderly dog. He's never marked, had a hair ball, any health issues, and mostly sleeps all day. He's a goofy boy who would love to meet your family!
