Story
Tango is my second cat. One day my sister took in a stray that was hurt to nurse her back to health and during that time had a single kitten. We eventually took him and made him our second addition to the family. That would be Tango. From an early age tango was trying to nurse from Titan and would suckle on towels. This lasted a good year. His behavior was good for a while until he got a little older and then out of nowhere what absolutely scared of everything. Other than the other boys which he does love he hates humans. He is not mean at all and has never scratched or anything at all ever. He does have severe anxiety that leads him to try to tear at my carpet when he can't get into a room. I feel so bad for him because I do not have any time to try and heal this anxiety. He needs a singular home. And help with his weight gain from hiding all the time. He's not great with vet visits at all. It hurts so bad to do this but I want a better life for him. I have faith he could be great

Story
Duke was my parent’s neighbor’s cat, but he had to move into assisted living, so we agreed to bring him into our cat family of 5 existing cats. Unfortunately, two of our cats have been very aggressive to him. While we have tried slow introductions over the past two months, our two cats have attacked him several times. They are separated now and he is thriving. But it breaks our hearts to try to find him a better home than ours. Duke is 6 years old. He was raised in a quiet home. He’s a bit of a scaredy cat and would probably do best without other animals. Or at least with nicer animals than ours. Duke loves people and loves to have company. He is super sweet. He loves to get water from the faucet and will give little love nibbles. Duke would probably be best for a retired family or for someone who works from home. Duke is up to date on all his medical, and we can share his medical records He is an indoor only cat and needs to be kept inside.

Sid is a 9 year old, adult cat. He would benefit in a no other pet household. He is very defensive, but also very sweet, and likes to cuddle, especially if you have a soft blanket.

Steve is a very laid back calm boy who just seems to want to get along with everyone. He is absolutely addicted to Churu so that's a must in his life. He also really enjoys chasing string and laser pointers. Most of the time though he likes just hanging out with his person. Not necessarily an in the lap cat but he likes to be right up against you. My cats won't give him a chance but he does try to get along with them. He did start out as a feral boy so he can be a little standoffish at first but he's worth the effort.

Story
This cat is between 2 and 3 years old. She’s very sweet and playful. She was abandoned by her former owners. She was loved by a young kid, but unfortunately that child has moved into a household with cat severe allergies and the cat cannot come too. The adults involved are unreachable and the lease on the cat’s house is up at the end of October.

Story
Located in a foster home in North Palm Beach and available for transport to Pittsburgh. Severe cat crisis in south Florida and cats and kittens are transported to loving homes in Pittsburgh. We have ties to the area and travel between the two places. How do we do these adoptions? Ask us about the cat or kitten! We will give you all information. We use an adoption application to simplify the adoption process. Please ask us for one if you're interested. Then we have a telephone conversation and or video call. If all is a go, then we arrange transport to Pgh. You come to the foster home there snd meet the cat. All a go, you take take the cat home with all medical records, pay the adoption fee and sign the adoption contract. We follow up with you to ensure kitty adjusts well and everyone's happy. Our goal is to make a good match between cat and people for a happy home and a happy cat. Again, please ask us for more! Bono, aka Fibonacci, needs a home and he's a wonderful boy! Bono is wishing for his forever home. He's going to be so happy to have found you. He's so vulnerable and sweet - and sometimes kind of needy. Silly boy Bono loves to play, loves to roll around with happiness when he sees you. He can be a little chirpy and will come to you and sit in your lap. He does the elevator butt - he's so cute and just a fun and silly boy. Seriously though, this is a great cat. Really beautiful - botched, kinda marbled brown tabby, light green eyes, pinkish/orangish nose on an absolutely purrfect face. Gorgeous round face. Will sleep with you, cuddle with you, bond to you strong. Bono, also know as Fibonacci (named after the mathematician who described his markings and other swirls seen in nature, like shellfish, clouds and so on), would love to be your one and only cat so that he can share all of his love with you. He is sensitive and can be a tiny bit timid, so a quieter, understanding and loving home would be his dream come true. Bono is 2 years old. Neutered, microchipped, current on rabies and FVRCP-C vaccines, had deworming protocol and is on a monthly flea preventative. Fibonacci tested negative for the feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus. We use a no obligation adoption application to simplify the adoption process. Thank you for considering this sweet baby.

Story
I am Tootsie. I got my name because I am so sweet. I am also playful. I love can cat food. I am a brown tabby cat with white patches and markings. I also have some orange tones in my furr. I am estimated at a year or 2 old. I was found when a co worker of a volunteer called the rescue to report a momma cat and kittens that showed up on his property in Latrobe. He beleives momma was dumped because she was pregnant. They were feeding just her til she brought the kittens around. As the cold months were approaching, I was struggling to raise my kittens outside in the cold. There were 3 kittens, then only 2 were being seen. By the time I was caught with my babies they were in pretty bad shape. Both of my babies passed away. I have received a clean bill of health and am ready for adoption. I do get along with other cats with proper introductoons. I am extremely friendly and affectionate. I do not like dogs.
