Story
We adopted Iris a little over 8 months ago. She is the sweetest and most affectionate cat however we have dogs (who are very familiar with cats as we have another cat) and she is so scared of them and hasn’t adjusted. She never leaves her hiding spot in her room and we just feel that we cannot provide her the quality of life she deserves. I have had my dogs years and years so unfortunately rehoming her is the best option for her. I think she would absolutely thrive in a home with no dogs. The only time she has really come out of her shell was when my dogs were at a sitter. I don’t take this decision lightly so anyone interested in adopting her we’d like to get to know and visit where she would be living.

Story
Milo is about 4.5 years old. He had become aggressive towards my other cats a few months ago. I have tried everything I could to fix it but nothing has helped. He is very sweet towards humans and loves to cuddle. It was not an easy decision for me to make, I love him very much, but I cannot risk him hurting my other cats again. He needs to go to a home with no other animals and needs to be indoors. I want to make sure he goes to a very good, loving home.

Meeka is very loving and super affectionate. Meeka is so trusting and gentle I feel that she should be a total indoor cat. Her personality is chill with family. Meeka is a big cat and loves to eat so a slow feeder is recommended.

Story
Neil is three and a half years old. He is very affectionate. He is a constant source of love and entertainment for anyone he meets. I got him during the early days of the pandemic, when I had much more time on my hands. I am going to college in August and will be unable to provide him with the attention he deserves. I also have a small living space, which has been inadequate for him. I would love for him to have a larger place to live with more roaming space. He is indoor only, or he will run up a tree and get stuck.

Story
Family member brought a cat into our home that was not neutered and tagged multiple of our female cats. Tiger, as sweet as he is, is apart of that chain reaction and we now are over baren with a few cats we cannot handle/afford. Tiger is only a couple months old and even after getting fixed has still remained loveable and agile. He loves to play and would love to get to know other animals, and play with new toys. Giving him a new home would not only be giving him the love and care he needs, but would also help us out immensely in being able to give our other animals the love and care they need.

These pups are in Knoxville, Tennessee too!

Fritz is a very sweet and loving boy. He will make a fantastic companion. He is FIV+ but that is just a label. We know cats can live just as long as non FIV cats. He, unfortunately doesn't like other cats . He wants all the attention for himself. If you give this sweet boy a chance you will not be disappointed.May 28, 2024, 11:11 am
