Story
My daughter got Dobby (free) when he was about 10 weeks old, from someone who knew someone, in 2020. He has been with us ever since. We found out that she is seriously allergic to cats and she takes 4 different meds in order to keep him. My oldest and I are also allergic. She is graduating & enlisting and we are moving across the country. Allergies & moving expenses make this a perfect storm of situations requiring him to be rehomed. He has seen the same Vet since we've had him. Dr. Rob of Custer Road Veterinary Clinic neutered and chipped him and has administered all his shots. Dobby was recently diagnosed with a bladder infection and is on prescription food. An independent and curious cat; he likes snuggling but usually on his terms. He will let you pick him up and carry him around sometimes. He is very vocal when hungry and has been around a dog his entire life. He likes to hide behind doors and jump out at our dog then runs away. Yes, he uses a litter box & stays off counter tops.

Story
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. 💗 she is allergic to him as well, so we have had to keep him out of our rooms.. 🥺 He is house trained. He will come with all of his toys, cat scratch box, a cat litter box and litter, bed, and a water fountain as well as any food we have at the time. Thank you and please reach out if your interested or have further questions 😊 Free to the right person/family! 💕

Don't let his playful side fool you, he is also an absolute cuddle bug who loves to be near you. Some of his favorite things are his tunnel to run in, churru treats, and being held! Onyx is happiest when he is spending time with his person. If he sounds like the cat for you, reach out so you can meet this spunky boy!

Story
This sweet little kitty has been staying with me for a week, and let me tell you, she’s a bundle of love and affection! Baby is always the first to greet me when I walk into the room, and she’s not shy about showing her affection by walking around my feet, hoping for a scratch or two. One of Baby’s favorite pastimes is lounging in the window sill, soaking up the warmth of the sun and watching the world go by. She’s quite the expert at it! Despite being moved around a few times, Baby has adapted remarkably well. She’s perfectly litter trained, with no issues whatsoever, and she’s a tidy little lady who knows her way around a litter box. Now, Baby may need a little help in the manicure department—her nails could use a trim—but don’t worry, she’s a gentle soul who will cooperate with patience and love. Plus, she’s got a preference for scratching boxes over furniture, so your couch is safe with her around! Baby would be thrilled to be adopted alongside her buddy, Scratch.

Story
Scratch may have only been with me for a week, but her resilience shines through despite having been moved around multiple times. She's a quiet soul who prefers her own company, content to be left alone most of the time. True to her name, Scratch can be a bit cautious at first, but once you earn her trust and allow her to come to you, you'll see her gentle side. However, she's not one to tolerate impatience—she'll give a gentle scratch as a reminder to respect her space. While Scratch may not be the life of the party, she's a low-maintenance companion who doesn't make any trouble for her foster families. She tends to hide in corners where she feels safe, but she's using her litter box and enjoying her meals at night. Scratch would thrive in a calm, child-free home where she can find stability and feel secure. While she may not be the best fit for a multi-cat household, she does have a special bond with her housemate Baby, who is also listed on this website.

Story
Bean was adopted from a rescue program in 2021 with her sister Sox while I was stationed at jblm . She is 2 years and 8 months old . I am looking for someone who likes to cuddle. Bean is very good with kids , she likes to play with toys and her sister Sox . She is the sweetest cat I've ever met. Sox is super playful. Her favorite thing to do is sit in her cat tower and look at birds and play with bean . They're each others best friends .
