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!


Welcome Nigel! 

Say hello to this mellow fellow. Nigel is a handsome orange tabby who is seeking a home that can provide a serene and calm place for him to grow old in.

This sweet boy is a social eater and enjoys dining in the company of others. He'll be so happy to have someone or a family with older kids to hang out with! Nigel is a young man, just a little over a year old and is still learning his place in the world. 

He is a lap cat. Once he's gotten comfortable he knead you. Nigel also enjoys an occasional treat and sisel scratching posts.

A slow and patient introduction would be best for him as he adapts to his new environment. Nigel does like kitty tents and blankies to hide in. All in all, this gentleman will certainly be golden as he matures!

Hurry in to meet this sweet guy!

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 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!
