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 Felix! This handsome male is relaxed and likes to be spoiled with affection. He will especially be grateful for lots of hind quarter scratches and will flop on his side for more. Felix understands brushing - so no need to train him there! 

Felix is seven years wise with a whole lot more inside. When you aren't looking...he will take advantage of scratching boards. What a silly goof!

Felix is the best lounger and will make an awesome couch buddy for movie marathons. He has the cutest smile and does rely on an only wet food diet because he doesn't have teeth anymore.  

Felix will do best indoors in a home with a slow introduction. Give him the sun to bask in and he will give you the world. 

Don't be shy, come on in and meet this guy!

Welcome Lyric! She is a five year old beautiful petite orange tabby. Lyric believes that catnip is magic! She has a cute and silly way of showing you she's really interested in it. She does this adorable head turn, slides her body along her blankie, then nuzzles her nose into her toy. (You'd think she was a dolphin dancing through waves.)

Lyric would enjoy a companion who wants to lovingly give her scratches behind her ears all the way down her back. If she can have room to roam and choose her favorite spots with catnip surprises, she'll purr to her heart's content.  She is a tad shy right now, however, she's blossoming each day. We don't know her experience with children or dogs and she is an indoor cat who would do best with a slow introduction.

Lyric can't wait to duet with you! Hurry in to meet her.

Poppy loves warm, plush spots or anything coming out of the dryer will be her go to. She will also be happy to nap with you and travel throughout the house to see what you're doing. 

Hummer enjoys being part of the scene too. He'll lick and snuggle when he's settled in with you. He has a guilty pleasure, he likes to be cradled like a baby and rocked. When you've reached this point, then you know the human has won him over!

Both Poppy and Hummer like scratching posts, angled, standing and flat. We are sure they'll make great companions as they are integrated into a loving home with older children, a couple or individual. They will do best with a slow introduction and be the only two you'll ever need.

Rikki and Rajah are sisters and have been together since they were born. Rikki is more outgoing, an attention hogger and likes to play. Rajah tends to be shy and reserved. She will though, warm up and climb into your lap when she feels confident and ready for petting and brushing.

Both are sweet, kindred cats who like to venture around living quarters, ultimately finding the perfect spot to observe and feel safe from.

These two will need a home where they are your dedicated fur babies. They would love to pair off on a couch or windowsill. It is best to integrate them slowly into a new environment. Rikki and Rajah no doubt, will double the love in your household. Stop in to greet these plush torties.
