Story
Conrad is a 16 year old neutered male. Conrad is very kind and loving once he gets to know you. He can be shy, but warms up quickly as long you are patient and gentle on approach. We’ve had Conrad since he was 4 months old. He’s always been an indoor kitty. We adopted him along with his biological brother in 2008 in Brooklyn NY. His brother passed away in 2017. A year later we adopted another cat so Conrad could have a companion. Unfortunately, they never got along despite our best efforts. We’ve managed to keep the peace (somewhat) between the two cats, typically by keeping them separated at night (to avoid fighting). Since having a baby in 2022, it has been a challenging environment for Conrad. Our modest home has limited space to separate 2 cats who don’t get along while also keeping the safe space for our son. He’s not aggressive to people but he’s been more anxious and stressed and sometimes chases our other cat who has asthma.

This is Grayson 💕 he is Grey and white and roughly 10 years old. We rescued him 6 years ago from the humaine society. Grayson is a very sweet and cuddly cat. He gets along with our little dog and another cat in the house. We have been feeling like we are not giving him the love he deserves since we had our 1st daughter last August. 💗 He is house trained. He will come with all of his toys, cat scratch box, a cat litter box, bed, and a water fountain as well as any food we have at the time. We wish to rehome both of our cats together, but they can go separately if thats what is best. Thank you and please reach out if your interested or have further questions 😊

Story
Estinien was adopted from the Tacoma ASPCA 3 years ago at the age of 12 weeks old. He is a wonderful loving cat that will chirp and talk to you once you get him to warm up. At first he might be a little scared. He absolutely loves a laser pointer which we call Bug here in our home. It is his favorite game and will usually play for hours or until he is panting. He love treats and likes to bask in the sun when he is given the chance. He will also cuddle in your lap once he has gotten use to you. What isn't great about this little guy? Nothing in my book... It is with a heavy heart that I am having to seek a new home for him at this time. Due to some personal health issues that have arisen I am no longer able to give him the attention and time he needs to be cared for as he is an active little thing. With coming testing and treatments I simply will not be able to care for him nor will my family as they all have their own pets and things they must tend to besides helping me.

Story
Miko is a 5 year old chunkster. He loves to cuddle and enjoys being rubbed. He’s comfortable around our 3 dogs and cat. He sleeps with our girl dog most nights. Miko does enjoy going outside in our enclosed back yard to lay in the grass, sun, and bird watch. he can not jump our high fence which is the reason he’s allowed outside. He is such a sweet boy and was raised with my 3 young children so he’s great with kids who can respect not to hurt him but cuddle him. We are a military family, and miko has always adjusted great to 3 moves around country: it breaks my heart he can’t move with us this time. Looking for a loving home that will give him all the loves he deserves

Loafy is a wonderful cat, he loves to be pet and likes to play by rolling toys around on the floor. He can be a little shy at first but once he's out of his shell he's calm and affectionate. My husband loves cats but after a particularly bad asthma attack, and advice from the doctor, we have to give him up. I don't want to put loafy through the shelter again, so hopefully someone can give this little guy a loving home.

Hello FB community, I’ve adopted this ridiculously adorable female cat that I’ve fallen in love with, but she needs a new home. My cat, Dave, really doesn’t like her. She’s super friendly and even gets along with dogs. She offers hours of entertainment, will make you giggle and your heart heart melt. Has been both an inside and outside girl. I’ll get her vet records, I’m not sure yet of her vaccination status and such. Thanks!

Nash is a wonderful young male cat. He was born March 2023. He to date on shots, microchipped, and neutered. He is not a picky eater and loves Churu. He does not mind being held and does not mind having his tummy rubbed and will give kitty kiss once and awhile. He is not use to children but that is something that comes with time. He have favorite toy that he likes to play fetch with. He travels well in carrier. My male cat and Nash do not get along. He likes to charge at them. He has never hurt them, but I do keep the separated. He also does this with my girl cats. He wants to be in charge. He would love to be only cat. He is very gentle with me, he loves women. Oh yes, he loves to be petted. He is a awesome cat and I want the best for him.

This is Ray Ray! He is the world's sweetest boy, and has so much energy. He loves to run and play, and he loves cuddles! We'll be sending along his favorite feather toy, string, stuffed spider, and tube toy. He loves bringing you his toys and will often play fetch (on his terms, lol). This sweet boy won't stop purring!! He doesn't get along well with other cats and is very aggressive with them, however. We found him as a stray, and though we already have 4 cats, we couldn't leave him on the streets. Unfortunately, since he doesn't get along with our cats and we really don't have space for him, we need to find him his forever home. He needs a home with lots of space and people with time and energy to play with him often! He is due for his vaccines soon but is otherwise up to date, and has been indoor only since we found him.

Finnagan is in need of a new loving home. He is a lovey and cuddly guy when he's not curled up on his cat tree! He does wonderful with children and gets along with other cats! A dog free home is recommended and he did suffer an accident that forced the removal of a rear leg. He has also been diagnosed with diabetes but that doesn't slow him down! He does require a special diet and insulin injections due to his Diabetes.
