Honey is a spayed, 3 year old black domestic short hair. She has lived indoors her whole life. Her previous owners lived a busy lifestyle and did not have much time for her. She is not very socialized, but is quickly warming up to us. She loves catnip and is very affectionate. She does not have experience with other cats, dogs, or children.

** Honey has a Medical Waiver that her adopters will need to review and sign for an unresolved medical condition. The medical waiver states that you agree to adopt in the pet's current condition and you will provide any further medical care or treatments that are neeed and will assume all financial responsibility for any medical expense the animal may require. Honey has had a mild chronic watery eye discharge since 2012. The HS suspects a previous upper respiratory infection possibly damaged her tear ducts.
My name is Cotton and I have been at the shelter for four months, but I recently moved to Met Vet! I am a sweet and loving gal who loves being around people and I enjoy being pet occasionally! It is unknown if I have been around other cats, dogs or children, so I will need very slow introductions so I can become a wonderful addition within my new family. One VERY important caveat - I have a very severe food allergy but have been put on a specific formula food and I am on the mend. I will need to remain on this diet for the rest of my life or my allergies will become worse. All in all, I need a wonderful family to take care of me.. Do you know that special someone??

Nadia is 4 years old and she is declawed on all 4 feet and must be and INDOOR ONLY CAT. She would love to be the only kitty to get attention in your home, but she may be okay with mellow cat-savvy dogs. Her owner surrendered her because she didn't have time for her. She was gone 3-4 days per week and didn't have anyone to come in and look after her. Nadia loved sleeping in the owners bed with her, but isn't much of a "sit in your lap for hours" kind of cat. She is too independent for that.
She should not be in a home with children because she does get testy with too much stimulation. Teenagers would probably be OK though. Stop in and meet Nadia, she's hanging out in our front lobby!

Frisky has been at the shelter since May and is in need of a new loving home. He was surrendered by his owner because she had too many animals and could no longer afford to keep him. Frisky is a sweet cat, but very shy at first. He will need time to come out of his shell so he can show you just how loving he truly is. He has been around children older than 10 years - but please NO other cats and NO dogs. Frisky will make a wonderful addition to the perfect family, please help us find that special home just for him! You can stop in and meet Frisky any time.
