Gizzie
"Hi there! I’m an incredibly sweet and loving girl that wants nothing more than your love. I sometimes have playful bursts of energy because I always want to have fun, especially when people are around! I also enjoy relaxing and sleeping for hours.  I’m a smart gal too! I know how to sit, shake, and do so much more. When you visit me, I may be barking at you in my kennel, but please ask to take me out so you can see my true personality shine! And according to staff around here, I make the most adorable funny faces. How about you come by and I’ll show you? I’m sure I’ll make you smile!"

Smitty
"Hello! I’m Smitty and I am a rather shy guy. Everyone keeps telling me that I’m a handsome boy and I hope you think so too! I’m a little more robust than I should be and that’s why I’m trying to get down to a healthy weight. I hope my future family will help me on my weight loss journey. Ideally, I would like someone who’ll feed me a good diet and enjoy playtime with me. A laser pointer, cat nip, and a cat wand with feathers might help get me moving. Even though I’m a shy kitty, I’d still love to meet you! Come by the Paul Jolly and let’s meet soon because I’d much rather finish out my weight loss journey in a loving home with you."

Charles
"Hi, I’m Charles! I’ll probably try to charm you with my playful personality and my friendly attitude. I enjoy going for walks and playing with toys but I will have to take it easy due to a healing fracture in my leg. I’m a good boy who gets along with everyone including dogs too. I’d love a home where I can lounge around with my best friend. I hope you give me a chance to meet you! Maybe we can become best friends?"

Cho
"Hi, I’m Cho! Look into my eyes, don’t you think they are beautiful? I hope they convince you to come meet me! I am a quiet kitty who tends to keep to myself in the cattery. I’m not a social butterfly but wish I could be! I’m just shy and will need some time to get to know new people. I hope someone will be willing to give me that chance to get to know them. Will you give me that chance?"

Buddy
"The first thing you’ll notice about me when we meet would be that I very much love to play and run. You’ll be able to see me wiggling my butt with excitement because I’m out and about with some new human pals. We need to hang out and go out for long walks around the city and all the parks. We will become the best of buddies!"
