Ireland
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."

Rainbow
"Rainbow is a great name for me. I am beautiful to look at but can be elusive. I am very bashful and being in the Cattery is overwhelming. I could really use a quiet, calm home and I'm sure you'll be finding the pot of gold at the end my Rainbow soon!"

Zara
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"

Onya
"Hello! I’m the beautiful Onya! If you’re looking for a mini black panther to inhabit your home, then I will be purrfect! I’m still rather new around here so I’m getting to know the place, although, I would much rather get to know your place. How about we meet and discuss this possibility?"

Pudge
"Hi, I’m Pudge! I’m a sweet tabby kitty but a bit bashful right now. It must be because I’d much rather be in a loving and calm home with a nice friend who’ll be gentle with me. I’m really looking forward to finding that home soon where I can finally relax."

Dave
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple,  you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"
