Delilah 7Y 6M Domestic Shorthair Female Available Front

Did you know cats used to be worshiped? I say we bring that back and everyone treats me like the royalty I am. I can be very independent and do things at my own time and pace. Much like my ancestors before me, I like to chase and pounce at my toys. I would prefer to be the only pet in your house that way I can get all the attention to myself. I think I would like if children in my new home were a little bit older and understand that I will sometimes need my space. So if a playful, fun cat is what you're after, hurry on in to say hi!

Dolly 2Y 8M Domestic Longhair Female Available No

Are you lonely? Looking for a nice, quiet, beautiful roommate? Look no more because I’m your girl. Really. I’m not kidding. You can check off all the boxes when you meet me:

Sweet? Yes.

Gentle? Yes.

Affectionate? Yes.

Sometimes a little shy... Nothing wrong with that.

Good with other gentle cats? Yes.

I wouldn’t wait too long to visit me; I’m crossing my paws that I won’t be here long.

Lyra 11Y 10M Domestic Shorthair Female Adopted! No

Are you interested in music, astronomy, or mythology?  If you are then you already know that in Greek it means lyre or lyrical.  And that there is a whole story behind the constellation, but I won't get into those details.  After all, you're here for me, not a history lesson.  I'm used to a quiet home without many visitors and would prefer to be the only animal in my home.  According to my previous owners, I'm an independent cat so you won't need to worry about me walking across your computer.  However I would love for you to play with me.  I enjoy feather toys, toy mice, and the laser pointer.  If you're a mellow person searching for a mellow cat, I just might be the one for you.

My adoption fee is waived thanks to The Lucky 7 Fund!

Sassafrass 2Y 1M Domestic Shorthair Male Available No

I'm just your typical young adult: energetic, playful and curious.  So don't be surprised if I'm right next to you all day every day watching what you're doing. Having another young, playful cat in my new home might be really good for me.  I love to play with all types of toys such as toy mice, wand toys, and pretty much anything that makes a fun noise.  I also really enjoy having my neck and ears scratched, you'll know you hit the right spot when I start purring.  One thing I really don't like though is being picked up and held.  I prefer to have my 4 feet planted firmly on the ground thank you very much.  If an energetic and loving cat is what you're searching for, hurry in and meet me soon!
