Highlighted Cats
See all the Cats!
Felicity is a sweet, extra large chatty girl who likes her share of attention. She has been with us for over a year now and is one of our "priority" cats to find a home for as soon as possible. She has great thick but short fur and is a quiet medium energy girl who came in with her brothers over a year ago. She is a big ham, loves attention and is full of confidence.  Felicity was in a home but due to no fault or action of hers, it did not work out so she needs another chance. She is more about Felicity
Cute darling underbite where her bottom teeth are jutting out a bit more and gives her the unique look...Pansy is a quiet, soft and silky calendar girl. She has a soft but sassy little purr and responds well to gentle petting. She loves to nuzzle and is ready for her forever home. Pansy is very easy-going and will be a wonderful lap cat for a lucky family.  She truly looks like she just popped off a calendar and loves to pose for her photos. Pansy is the social soul and will gladly be a more about Pansy  Free Calendars
