"I'm an older, sophisticated dude who absolutely loves to be held! I spend most of my time resting and barking at the dogs that pass by the shelter. If you show me some love, hold me, and give me some head scratches, I will be yours. The staff says that I'm a really sweet guy and that you should give me a chance. If you think you want to adopt me, check me out here!"

"I've been at Hope for Life for over two months, and no one has shown any interest in me. I started out in the feral forest but was eventually moved over to the cat haven because I've shown a lot of progress. I'm usually hiding in one of the cat towers or up above because I'm still unsure about people. I'm still decompressing and will need an owner who is willing to give me time to warm up to you. If you think you are that special person, look me up here!"

"I'm a simple girl who has earned myself the spot of 'staff favorite.' They say I am a happy cat who always has a positive attitude. They let me hang out with them so that I'm not sitting in the cage all day long. During my freedom, I love snuggling in laps, getting scratches, and napping in hideaway places. If you think I'm the one for you, check me out here!"
