"I hope you are as excited to meet me as I am to meet you—I will sing you a song when you walk up to my cage and ask to be taken into that little meeting room so you can spend time with me and pet me all you want. I will be a very social and active cat so you will need to set aside some time to play with me before I lie down to take my daily nap. If you are looking for an active kitty, consider me here!"

"I'm a sweet older gal who craves a good place for sunbathing! I will love you forever if you buy me one of those window hammock things where I can bathe in the sun and bird-watch all day—oh, I would also appreciate it if you could give me some head scratches while you're at it. Love me furever, here!"

"Hello! I'm a super-smart pupper who knows basic tricks like sit, shake, and down, which you can see in my video! I can provide you with the best of both worlds because I need an active family who can take me on a long walk in the morning but who can also snuggle with me on the couch for the rest of the day—I'm both lazy and hyper! If you think I'm right for you, check me out here!"

"I'm not one of those ordinary and boring cats—I love to talk! I say it's a useful skill because I can tell you when I need something! I am a family-centered kitty who will greet you when you come home but also take time to myself to sunbathe, play with toys, and ask or pets. If you think I will fit right in, please take me home here!"
