cat

"With my sleek white coat and quiet demeanor, I'm the affectionate cat of your dreams. I require plenty of patience and love, but I give plenty in return with nose boops. Due to my difficult background, I've had to adapt slowly and patiently with an adoring foster-mom to feel comfortable around others. I would thrive in a home with no pets or children, please!

"I'm a snuggly tuxedo girl with a lot of charm. At seven pounds, I'm light as a feather and quiet to match. Give me something soft to cuddle on like a fluffy blanket, and I'll be a happy camper! I'm currently in my foster home, but I would love to have a forever home. Will you make me your forever pal? Give me a chance here!"

"I'm a spritely kitten with beautiful tiger stripes and orange eyes. While I love to play, nothing beats a lap snuggle with my favorite people. I would do well with one of my buddies, Hottie, and Marigold, but if you already have a cat at home that's great, too! Are you interested in adopting me? Find out more here!"
