"I am a pretty girl with a big smile. When I get a chance to go out, I am all about sniffing and exploring everywhere. I need to get that out of my system, then I will be ready for calmer things such as my celebrity photo shoot. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes, but other times you will hardly notice it. I would like to be the celebrity in your home!"
"I am a little guy who is proud of myself and proud of my terrific photo. I haven’t had a great life in the past, and that has left me with some skin issues and a tendency to have a bit of the shakes. My skin will get better but maybe not the other thing. I don’t think it will interfere a bit with our life together, and I know I am deserving of a much better one than I have had in the past."
"Hello, I am Kassie! A typical day for me is lounging around relaxing. I have a strong preference for a home without other cats. I’m the type of girl who prefers to have cat beds to myself. Even though having cat friend just isn’t my thing, I still wouldn’t mind living with people. As long as they spoil me and love me forever, then I’ll be happy!"
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”
"Hi everyone, I’m very happy that you are interested in my profile. I am a very calm, smart girl that loves to receive lots of affection and hugs. I really enjoy spending time with my human friends. All I need now is a forever home where I will get all the love from my forever family. Come and ask for me so we can meet!"
"Hello, everybody, the name is Puma. I am a rather timid shy girl at first so please go slow with me. Please have a bit of patience with me, it will take a bit of time, but you will see that I will get comfortable and spend loads of time with you. I will be very grateful and appreciate the time you spend with me to help me socialize! I hope to find my forever home soon and I hope it’s with you."
"I follow where my nose leads me because I love smelling things. But offer me a treat and I’ll sit for it and then gobble it up, because I also love treats! Even though I was left out on the streets because I have arthritis and my owner didn’t want to deal with it, I love and trust people. Just look at my face – you can see it’s full of love. I take medicine and feel absolutely fine and frisky. We could be great friends and have a wonderful life together, so let’s get together and talk about it, OK?"
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”
"I’m a social but mischievous little imp. Having a limp has not stopped me from being an active cat. I really love treats and when I am in the mood I love a good cuddle. I’m still very playful and would benefit from a home with lots of toys to entertain me. When I get bored I do find ways to entertain myself but sometimes that can get me in a bit of trouble. If you’re a bit impish like me than we would make the perfect pair!"
"Hi there! I’m a strong, lively gal that is searching for an active friend who’ll embrace my energy. I love being outdoors so I would make a great camping buddy. Ooooo and I also love treats! I already know ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and I’m very treat motivated, which means I could easily learn much more! Can you picture it? Just imagine, my beautiful blue and brown eyes lovingly gazing up at you after a walk in the dog park. Come meet me today and let’s become best friends forever!"
