Story
Charlie is a sweet boy looking for his forever home. Does well will other cats, dogs, and children. While he enjoys lots of pets, often he is found minding his own business lounging on the chair. He is around 1.5 years old. He is not currently neutered. His new home will need to get him fixed.

Story
Jack is a foster. He is the sweetest boy. He is quite a talker. He starts purring as soon as you walk in the room. His Mom had a Stroke and couldn't come back home. The Wisconsin Humane society would not take him because he is on heart medication and said they would put him down. It was good timing that I didn't have any other foster animals so I said I would give it A try and find this amazing boy a home. There is no reason why this cat should be put down. I have switched his food to science diet light and science diet senior to hope that will help with weight loss. Maybe he will not need his meds if he loses weight. His Mom just let him eat as much as he wanted. He only gets a 1/2 cup a day of dry food now. Jack will fill your live with so much happiness and love. He is the best boy ever I already have 3 cats dog and bunnies. He loves my animals no problems. He has lots of life in him yet. Let him share gifts and give you unimaginable love.

Story
Raza is a sweet 5 year old black cat. We’ve had him since he was about 2 months old and love him dearly. We noticed he became less relaxed after the birth of our son in 2019 and then the birth of our daughter in 2021. He seems stressed when they’re in the room (especially the toddler who is a bit unpredictable, loud, and fast) and sometimes runs out in a frenzy, sometimes bumping into things. He’s been examined by his veterinarian and they think his behavior is due to stress. We have tried some anti-anxiety medication for him but ultimately it seems like the environment of our growing family is not allowing him to relax the way he used to. It breaks my heart but I am starting to wonder if there is a home for him out there that he’d be more comfortable in. I want him to have the best life possible. He’s a snuggler and loves to lay on my legs. He deserves the best.

Story
I found Percival starved down to a skeleton and covered in fleas. Although the owners were contacted that he had been found, they did not seem to want him, so he stayed at my house. In the months since, he has recovered beautifully. It turns out he is lively, affectionate, and loves to play. He has a sweet, if somewhat mischievous, personality. He is unphased by dogs or other cats. He seems to love all people, although I don't have kids so I am not sure about children. His age is unknown: due probably to chronic malnutrition, he is a small cat (5-6 pounds) and has terrible teeth. The vets estimate his age at 10-11 based on his teeth, but he is probably closer to 5. He is active, energetic, and plays like a kitten. Percy needs an affectionate owner who will play with him often and give him lots of love.
