One of the advantages to adopting an adult cat that has been in foster care is that you get to learn all about their personality and behaviors BEFORE you take them home!


Meet Edgar and Allen!

These wonderful three-year-old boys are staying together through thick and thin. Edgar is an outgoing charmer whose likes include chin scratches and dry kibble, where Allen is a bit shy and prefers cuddling up with his brother.
Edgar likes to make eye contact, is super soft to touch and totally rubs against the corners of things. Allen likes to play twister on blankets and on his bed, so you'll get to see how flexible he can get. Allen definitely has a twinkle in his eye while he shows off. 

Both boys really, really do love cat tents and crawling under blankets - you know, creating their own cat cave. They, however, can be lured out with kitty talk and whispers.

Edgar and Allen will need a slow introduction at first to adjust in a nice and quiet home. These young fellas will make terrific companions.

Come in and meet them today (bonus points if your last name is Poe!)

Meet Couscous!

He is one to be smitten for. This uber sweet guy is hilarious  to hang with. All he wants is to rub his nose and forehead against your chinny chin chin, bird watch and nap.

This tuxedo  is 10 years young, friendly, happy and easy going. Couscous also knows how to scout out  a warm spot. Leave your seat a moment too long and he'll be right on it!

Couscous will undoubtedly make a great office companion as he doesn’t get in the way unless it’s for good reason.  We know he has a lot of great qualities to share and he’ll be thrilled to be in a home with folks that he can entertain.

Don't miss this awesome fella!

Welcome Zelda! 

This quirky and cute little lady loves a good chin rub and gentle pats. She will warm up shortly after meeting you showing a much more playful, content and friendly demeanor. 

Zelda is good around other cats after a slow introduction. She isn't terribly fond of dogs unless they are very low key. She would be best in a home with a couple, individual or a family with older children.

Shortly after Zelda was born, it was found that she has a reoccurring urinary tract infection that will need consistent monitoring and a special diet. Zelda is a year and three months now and needs someone who can love her as she is and can commit financially to the long-term medical care she needs.

She will make a worthwhile companion for someone very special. Come on in to meet this soft hearted darling!
