If you're in the market for a gentle soul with a playful streak, Fancy is for you! We adore her unique markings and sweet demeanor. This shy girl loves cuddling with her catnip banana and getting chin rubs from her favorite people. She may be up there in cat years, but from the looks of it, she hasn't lost her edge. Find out how to adopt her here!

Lulabelle, 5

cat

We're softies for tabby cats, and Lulabelle is no exception! At 11 pounds, this sweet girl's a bit on the hefty side, so she'll need help shedding the pounds at her new home. While she's been around other kitties, her personality is better-suited to being the only cat who shines. Will you make Lulabelle the queen of the house? Make her yours here!

Bali, 3

Bali is prepared to be your best gal pal. She loves chit-chatting with you after a long day of work or snuggling on the couch if you'd rather just chill. Right now she's at Crumbs & Whiskers, D.C.'s uber-hip cat cafe (and the coolest place for cats), so you know she's a keeper. Find out how to adopt her here!

Mercury, 3

Mercury is a sleek black cat with enchanting, owl-like eyes. Not a lot is known about her, but judging by her face she's already stealing our hearts. Like Bali, this cutie is currently residing at Crumbs & Whiskers, undoubtedly being the coolest of cats. Interested in adopting her? View more information here!

cat

Meet Clancy! Only a year old, this affectionate boy loves to play and has a lot of kittenish energy left in him. It isn't known how he is around cats, but he does well with dogs, so if your pooch needs a playmate you're in luck! Make him yours here!

Asparagus, 8 Months

cat

Asparagus is a domestic shorthair/bobtail mix with an affectionate, loving personality. He's a bit on the shy side, so it's recommended he have a cat pal to help bring him out of his shell. If you're an introvert who revels in peace and quiet, this is the cat for you! Interested in adopting this fine feline? Check out more here!

cat

Rainy and her siblings Morning Glory and Zephyr were discovered under a shed before they were taken in by The Feline Rescue Association. As a kitten, she adores playtime and eating her favorite treats. She'd love having a buddy, so consider adopting her with one of her siblings. Give her a chance here!

Madam Mim, 10

cat

This fabulous feline has us absolutely smitten! Sadly her family is moving and won't be able to take her, so she needs a new home to be cared in. Despite her grumpy-looking face, she's a big-hearted girl who loves and wants to be loved in return. She would fare well in a house with children and no other pets. Will you give her a second chance?
