Story
Sparkles was born at the Cat Adoption Center in downtown Portland. She was born May 3, 2018 and we adopted her on July 23, 2018. She has been an indoor cat all of her life and no longer even tries to get outside. She loves to sleep in small baskets, sometimes smaller than what looks comfortable. She is a wonderfully loving cat who loves to be around us and plays well with other cats. We have had two other cats while she has lived with us and she always did well with them.

Story
A little over 2 months kitten, very sweet, playful, and cuddly! I wish I could keep him but unfortunately I am unable to give him the best life he needs right now due to having 2 dogs and a small apartment. I really want to find him a safe and happy home! He will come with litter box, cat litter, litter box bag liners, toys, food, and anything else I purchase for him in the meantime will be sent with him.

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.
