Story
This girl is definitely an indoor princess cat. She likes her comforts and expects to be petted (especially her ears and head). Lily is 3 years old and loves to cuddle. She wants to be near me or on my lap is possible. She follows me from room to room and she comes when I call her. This past summer I started introducing her to supervised outside time and she is very reluctant to go outside and is ready to go back in after 5 to 10 minutes. She likes to supervise my work and is a good inspector. She would do best in a home where she can get a lot of attention, preferably stay-at-home people who can shower her with love. She does have a crabby side if she doesn't get what she wants. It is best to keep you claws trimmed.

Story
cotton came to my grandsons house and did not get along with his male cat . We took him home and he has lived in our shop and I let him out during day . But I have 2 cats who are inside and out, and they fight!! I have to keep them separated. My female hates him, and I know someone is going to get hurt. Cotton loves people and will follow you everywhere. He needs a home with no cats. He is clean,uses the litter box, plays with toys, and comes when called.💕I cannot tell for sure if it is a girl or boy. The identification is not clear. He/she is a healthy cat.

Story
He came to my grandsons house a few months ago. They have a male cat that fought with him and was injured. I took him to live with us , but I also have a male and have kept cotton in a separate building, with outside time everyday. He is a very sweet cat that loves people and follows you. He is also very smart, understands “no” and obeys. He loves toys and likes to be outside. He should be in a home without cats I think.He is beautiful with gold eyes. We love him and want him to go to a forever home.

Story
Stephani is a small spawyed female born in fall 2022. She was spayed at 6mo, vetted with paperwork. She is very gentle and soft, friendly and calm. She is part of a small well cared for cat colony but would love a home of her own. She is peaceful solitary and seems to want a quiet environment - ideally no dogs or lots of other pets/kids.
