Found these precious boys on the side of the road when they were tinny baby’s. They are the sweetest cats I’ve ever met and are supper gentle. They are about 8 months and have all their shots. They are great with kids love to play. They love being outside as well and give the best cuddles! Please message me if you’re interested I can’t keep them because I’m going away to college but I wish I could. (xxx) xxx-xxxx

Story
Hello, meet Esther. She is a little over 3 years old. Esther and her siblings were found abandoned as a young kitten. I fostered them all until they were old enough to be adopted out. My kids really wanted to keep Esther so we adopted her. She is a sweet & loving but a little shy cat. She loves cuddles and sleeping. She also likes to eat. lol. We have a household of animals and she gets along well with our other 2 older cats and our dog. She has never tried to bite or scratch at any of the other animals or the kids. I do feel she would do best with a single person with no other animals but if you do have other pets she will be okay but you will need to give her time to adjust and get use to you. Like I said she is shy and she will hide from you at first but give her lots of patience and love and she will be your best friend in no time. She really is a lover and wants to be by you getting pets and love. Unfortunately we have to move and can no longer take care of her. Thank you!

Story
This is Olivia. I rescued her from a hoarder house over a year ago. She came home with me and I have been taking care of her ever since. She’s extremely sweet and cuddly. I love her so much but I rescued three cats at once and I did not plan on keeping her due to finances and space. I want to find her a forever home because she deserves it.

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
Ellie loves every person she's ever met. Her happy place is curled up on your lap, on the back of the sofa near you, or in bed next to your pillow. Our nick-name for her is "little meeper" because rather than a meow, she makes little meeps when she's trying to get your attention. She'll also reach out with her right paw and tap you. Her favorite toys are little stuffed mice and a ribbon wand. She likes to scratch on the sisal pole of her cat tree and cardboard scratchers As a lifelong indoor kitty, she's not an escape artist. And she's a surprisingly good mouser. Ellie is great with dogs. She's good with children who know how to behave with animals and isn't frightened by them being their energetic selves. Ellie has always lived with a dog and plays with our current dog. She has always had someone home with her so a home with someone in the house most of the time would be best. Ellie does not get along with other cats.

Story
Pepper is an indoor cat currently. She is super friendly, she is sweet, she is litter box trained, she has no behavioral issues. She gets along with other cats. It took her one day to get used to my current cat. She has not lived with a dog. I think she would adjust to living with a dog once she figured out the dog was friendly.   She hasn't lived with kids. Peppers was a stray and I am trying to find a home for her. She has been living in my house until I can find her her best forever home. I took her to the vet on May 15th and had a normal exam and blood work tests done. She tested positive for FIV, Negative for FeLV (leukemia).  She has recently been spayed.      She would make someone very happy. She is loving, and friendly. She loves to play with string. She is respectful of my house and my furniture. She uses a cardboard scratch box. unfortunately, I cannot keep her because I have a roommate who is moving and her cat has had FIP, and is currently in remission after months of shots. (I cannot risk Pepper biting her cat although she has never showed signs of aggression towards my current cat.)  She gets along well with cats, she is docile. It just is a risk my roommate can't take with her cat who has recently gone through with treatment for FIP. If I didn't have another cat at risk I would keep her.  Pepper is indoor only.  Her adoption fee is $50.   This cat is offered for adoption due to the owner's personal circumstances. For more information on meeting and adopting this kitty, please fill out a pre-adoption application under "ADOPT" on our website at WWW.CATSCRADLERESCUE.COM. Your information will be forwarded to the owner for follow-ups and meeting arrangement.  Cat's Cradle is an all-volunteer, non-profit foster-home based rescue serving Oregon cats who need new homes. 100% of your adoption fee goes to provide for the medical and physical needs of the cats in our care. We invite you to become a foster parent and experience the great satisfaction of helping a cat or kitten in need.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.June 12, 2024, 10:42 pm
