BB 8Y 0M Domestic Shorthair Male Available Front

Let me sing you a little story (dah dah, dah dah). About a buff-colored cat (dah dah, dah dah). Was found as a stray (dah dah, dah dah). Hard to believe since he's fat.

I love me some BB King, and I definitely was singing the blues before I was found a taken to a safe place where I can find a new loving family. I'm a friendly, easy going guy, and I think I would be happiest in a calm home, preferably one that's on just one level. I have some arthritis and stairs might be difficult or uncomfortable for me. Since I'm on the chubby side, it would also be helpful if my new family could help me shed some weight. I wouldn’t say I’m lazy, but one of my favorite things is watching the world outside from the comfort of the cozy couch or roomy window seat. I also really like brushed... it's like a full body massage. I can live with other gentle cats, but I think a dog might be a little to much for me.

Just because I'm 13 doesn't mean I'm not still a busy guy. First, I need to check out what's happening out the window. Next, I'll see if any closets need looking into. Finally, I'll move on to help you while you're working at the computer, or whatever else you might be doing. And then there are my naps -- I can't be late for those! I always have time, however, for hanging out with you! I'm affectionate, snuggly, and gentle! I do like some toys, but I like it best when you can play with me. Having someone to care for me who's not away from home very much is my dream. Are you that person? Visit with me, and you just might realize that you and I are meant to be.

Catarina 9Y 6M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

Here I am on the desk: the perfect office helper. If someone is working at the computer, I'm right there making sure things are done correctly. Some people might say that I'm a stereotypical cat, coming to you when I want attention. While it is true that I want attention on my terms, I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm generally pretty calm, but when the mood strikes me, I like to chase little mouse toys. I don't mind some other cats, but I'm not too sure about dogs; if you ask me, they're big, clumsy, noisy, and they smell weird.  I think children in my new home should be at least 8 years old.

Lady Elaine 7Y 2M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

I'm Lady Elaine!  It's a regal name for an elegant girl like me.  I'm pretty easygoing and will do best in a nice quiet home where I can relax and find a comfortable spot to nap.  While I'm not necessarily a lap cat, I do enjoy being next to my human.  When I'm not napping I enjoy playing with feathers, wand toys, and of course catnip!  I may be okay with another cat but I don't know how I'd do with a dog.  I will add a touch of elegance to any home I go in!

Puma 8Y 2M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

I'm a laid back cat searching for bed to call my own.  A home that is more on the quiet side is what I'm after, but I think the occasional visitor is nice as well.  What I really want is somewhere where I can look out the window and watch all the birds and squirrels go by.  I would prefer to be the only cat in my new home, but might be ok with another calm cat as long as there is plenty of space for us both.  I think it would be best if children are least 8 years old and understand that cats need alone time as well as play time.  Speaking of play time, I really like to play with strings (supervised of course) and toy mice.  If you think we're a match, hurry in and meet me!

Romeo 12Y 3M Domestic Shorthair Male Available No

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

You called?  Hi there, I'm Romeo and unlike most cats, I do answer to my name!  Though if there is too much commotion I prefer to stay in a safe spot, like the top of the stairs.  I would prefer my new home to be more on the quiet side (not a lot of visitors), because that is what I'm used to and would be more comfortable there.  I've lived with other cats before and young children too.  I enjoy playing with feather toys, toy mice, and catnip just to name a few.  I am a very gentle and sensitive cat, so please be patient while I get used to being in a new home.  But if you give me a chance, I'll show you just how affectionate I can be!

Thomas 1Y 1M Domestic Shorthair Male Available No

Don't you think I'm just the most handsome cat around?  I most certainly do, and that's probably why I don't get along great with other cats.  I think they're just jealous, it's not my fault I'm really, really, really ridiculously good looking.  Though I don't want my new family to want be just for looks, I do have a lot more to offer.  For example, I love to play with toys, especially ones I can bat around like ping pong balls or toy mice.  I might be ok with younger children in my new home so long as they have experience with cats.  I am not sure if I have ever met a dog before, but I might be happiest as the only pet in general.  If a devilishly handsome young man is what you're after, I'm your guy!
