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 Heather! This sweet lady is more than happy to create conversation with you and your friends. Heather is a total social butterfly. She has also shown that she is very adaptable and confident. 

Heather is five years old and is just going to make a terrific companion. She acts like a dog in a cat's body. Warm, friendly, affectionate and the occasional pony up, you can't go wrong with this girl! 

Heather does have a heart murmur that is between a 2 and 3 on a scale of 1 to 6. Murmurs can either be from cardiac disease or non-cardiac, from stress, anemia, etc. She will need further cardiac testing by your regular veterinarian.

Hurry in! A personality as grand as Heather's is hard to come by.

Welcome Sandy! She is a beautiful long-haired orange tabby who loves observing birds from a quiet spot. Head scratches and treats are her favorites. If you give her those, she'll be all yours!

Sandy would enjoy a companion who can spoil her with a home that is nice and quiet. She prefers less loud noises as they startle her. Sandy is eleven years old and needs to remain indoors because she is declawed. 

Sandy is seeking patience, love and best yet, stuffed animals! She finds comfort laying with cozy toys and will become your best friend. Sandy will do best with a slow introduction to settle in her new home. 

Do come in to meet this sweet lady! She's one of a kind!
