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
Xena is a sweet, intelligent, and sensitive tuxedo kitty who's very bonded to her human. She's still young and playful and enjoys lots of pets and a good lap snuggle. She is even leash trained to go outside in her harness, and has learned several tricks such as sit, high five, and spin! Sometimes during play or pets, she can get overstimulated and play too rough or get defensive. So while Xena wouldn't be a good fit for a home with kids, she may do great with a friendly dog or cat companion to keep her company when her people are away at work. Xena needs a relatively quiet environment with far more space than a studio apartment, so she can seek out a quiet cozy spot when she needs it. This would be especially important for when guests come over, as she can feel overwhelmed and threatened if she doesn't have a place to escape to. She's microchipped, impeccable with using her litterbox, and really wants someone she can bond deeply with.

Story
Domingo is a sweet sweet boy that I've had since he was a kitten. He love affection and cuddles and is very tolerant to most things that a cat would find uncomfortable - he goes limp when you cut his nails, will let you put a harness on him, loves affection from most people. Sadly he very much wants to be an outdoor kitty and I can't provide that for him in my current situation.

Story
I got Swami in February of 2019. He's roughly 6 years old. It's quite hard for me to create this profile because I love this cat - but I move a lot and am gone a lot and it is just not fair to him. I am also more allergic than I thought. I have only had one cat relationship but I find him rather attuned to his owner. He is chill, adaptable, tactile; loves his big belly rubbed and can be held like a baby and kissed all over his face if you so desire. He has been all indoor as well as indoor outdoor. Currently living with a younger female cat and no issues. Once bonded he loves to go on strolls in the neighborhood off leash at night when it is quiet. He will even sit for treats! I think Swami would be great for someone who wants a close relationship with a cat - ideally with the option of going outside. Questions welcome!

Story
With a heavy heart we have decided to rehome our kitty, Etta. She is 10 years old but has so much playful energy and love to give. She is genuinely the sweetest most affectionate cat I’ve ever met and I have never seen her dislike any person - she will always jump up onto your lap for pets then curl up and snuggle with you until she falls asleep. After months of thought we have determined that she’s not thriving in our home given our lifestyle, and would really love to be with a family who can spend more time with her during the day. ⭐️She is super flexible when it comes to food (but would definitely thrive on a wet food diet), brand of litter and has never had a accident in my year of having her ⭐️She is FIV positive, but it has never caused any health complications and I have never seen her be aggressive with another cat. If you live in a home with other animals, a slow transition may be the best for her but I do think it would be good for her to have an animal companion.
