Age/DOB: 6-15-22 HI, I’m Bear and I am probably the sweetest kitten you will ever meet! I’m full of purrs and cuddles! I follow my foster mom around all the time when she is home and I get along great with all the other cats. I’m pretty confident and would more than likely do great in any household where I have lots of friends! I might even do well in one without other pets as long as someone was around to keep me company! I have a very gentle purrsonality but love to play and wrestle with the other fosters too! So far, I’ve been a good kitty and I haven’t been naughty like some kittens (we won’t name names)! I haven’t gotten into anything I shouldn’t, I don’t chew on things, and I’m pretty happy overall just being sweet!  I travel well too! No car sickness her! I went on a visit with my foster mom to visit her son and I did great in my crate in the car. I got meet her son and his girlfriend, and gave them snuggles and purrs right away! They loved me too! So if you think I’m the kitty for you, fill out an app and let’s get some snuggles going!! A little more about me: I came from a feral colony that was in the process of being trapped for a TNR program (trap-spay/neuter-release). The caretaker of the colony had managed to befriend me since I was an itty bitty, so I had no real fear of humans. Once the trapper met me, she said, “you are done with the street cat life! Time for you to get a real home!”. And that’s how I made it into the Purrs & Whiskers foster program. I just became old enough to be neutered, so that means I am ready to find my purrfect home! I am sooo excited! I can’t wait to meet you and start living the good life with my forever family!! Hugs and cuddles to you and I hope we are a match! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 3-27-2020 Hi, I’m Chyna! I am your typical black cat. No, not spooky! I am goofy, I am always excited, and I am oh so curious! I love to lay on the kitchen floor and watch you cook dinner. I promise never to beg, only watch. I love to chit-chat with you, rub my face all over you, and then curl up in your lap and get butt pats and belly rubs! Oh! Did I mention that I am a water kitty? I LOVE TO PLAY WITH WATER!! I am a very friendly kitty, but I fear change. I will need some time to get used to you, but I promise, once I am comfortable and get to know you, I will be your best friend! I like dogs, but I am not a fan of other cats. I like people of all ages, and once I get comfy in my home, I am not afraid to say hi to everyone! Did I mention that I like to cuddle? Cuddles are the BEST!! My foster mommy says I look like Toothless the dragon. I am all black with beautiful green eyes, and sometimes you can’t see where my face starts or ends. She says it’s the cutest thing she has ever seen. My foster mom says I am such a good kitty and deserve all the treats! Please schedule a visit to come and see! I would love to go home with you! XOXO Chyna Kitty I am spayed, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Fidget

Age/DOB: 4-20-2022 Hi, I'm Fidget. I have a bazillion nicknames: Fidge, Fidgy, Ms. Fidge, The Fidge-monster, Figgy, Ms. Figgy. Figgy Pudding. I prefer Ms. Figgy if you're curious. A few of my favorite things: stuffed mouse toy, jingly ball, and laser pointer. I will play with any of those toys for hours - preferably with a kitten friend. When the laser pointer comes out, I run after that red dot FAST! I'll even race the dog for the dot but I have to make sure the big hairy thing doesn't step on me! Check out the video my foster mom added to my listing to see how we all play with the laser toy/ Don't tell anyone but I've headbutted the dog a couple of times. And I've played with his super fluffy tail. And I may have snuggled with him a time or two. But there's no video of it so it didn't really happen! When not playing with my littermates, my favorite hobby is snoozing in the cat tower while watching the birds at the feeder out the window. It's so not fair that there's a pane of glass between me and those birds! Make sure you check out the photo of me in the catio! I love being in there - watching the squirrels! Note from foster mom: Fidget has adapted really well to our home. When she arrived, she was shy and hid in a box. It took her a while to get used to us - and now she's an amazing kitten companion. I don't think she'd thrive as an only cat/kitten - and tends to draw some confidence from another kitten. Additionally, she would do best in a quieter home without young children only because I don't think she'd understand the rough play that can come from young kids. Your patience with Fidget will be rewarded with lots of biscuit making and purring! The easiest way to Fidget's heart is with a churu, AKA meat tube! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Hi, I’m Oliver HARDY! I’m half of the LAUREL & HARDY comedy duo that is sure to keep you entertained! You’ll notice our bios are very similar! That’s because we are two peas in a pod and we do everything together! I'm hoping the big guy in red (aka Santa) can come through and score big for my brother (Laurel) and me this holiday season! We hope to find our furever homes, and hopefully it's together! I am over friendly and super fun too! I love to be held and played with all the time! If I’m not playing, then I am checking things out to see if it’s my new potential plaything! I definitely need a home where I have a buddy (preferably my brother, Laurel) to keep me occupied with having fun! I would do great in almost any home that is active, playful and has lots of love to give! I don’t think I would do well in a super quiet home, though. I really need to be entertained or at least be able to entertain you! I haven’t met a dog or been around kids, but my foster mom thinks that with my outgoing purrsonality, neither should be a problem - at least as far as I’m concerned! They may think otherwise once the meet me! HA! If you are looking for that kitten that will be the purrfect fit for your family, then look no further, that’s me! If you are looking for 2, then that is certainly me and my brother! We would love to go together! So, fill out an app and let’s get this comedy show rockin’! Age/DOB: 5-14-202 I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 4-20-2022 Hi, I'm Jewel! My people have a bunch of nicknames for me: Julie, Julie Jewel, Ju-Ju, JuJuBe, and Pearl.  I am a graybie - one of two hanging out at my foster parents' house. I was trapped when I was younger and have really embraced the Home Life. It's amazing! One of my favorite things to do is to hang out on the cat tree and watch the birds at the bird feeder. I swear, if the window weren't there, I know I could just reach out and grab one. I'm pretty sure my people would love a gift like that! One thing I'm not fond of: the catio. My littermates enjoy hanging out there in the sunshine. Me, not so much. I would describe myself as "indoorsy," preferring being inside the house where it's air conditioned. I just find a ray of sunshine on the floor and nap.  I really enjoy chasing the laser pointer down the hall with the other kittens - and I'll knock the others over to get to it first. If the dog gets involved in the chase, I'm out. He's super dorky but really big - so I let him get the red dot. I mean, if you and something 10 times your size were playing, wouldn't you let it win? I mean, really. Check out the video my foster mom attached to my listing...it's pretty cool, showing me and my sibs playing with the laser toy. Note from foster mom: Jewel is super affectionate. She'll climb on you and just purr and purr, falling asleep whereever she gets comfortable, your chest, your arm, your lap, a foot. Nothing is really out of bounds for Jewel's naps. We think Jewel would do better in a home without younger kids. She's still a little shy. You'll need to give her time and space to come out of her shell. But once she does, she's amazing! Jewel would do best with another kitten, Fidget or Wiz specifically. They're really close and pal around together. I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 3-12-2022 HI, I’m Mai! I’m part of the duo – Mai & Tai! We are two adorable sisters from the Cocktail litter and we are BFFs! You can see Tai in her post, but this one is all about me! I’m sweet, petite and ready to greet my new fureverfamily! I’m hoping for a loving, caring home with at least one friend for me to play with & have fun (maybe even my sister)! If you are wondering what kind of kitty I am, I’m a tortoiseshell, or “tortie” for short! Most kitties like me are said to have a “Tortitude” and act a little snooty! Not me! I love to be loved on and played with! No turning tail and walking away in a huff for this girl! In the mornings when my foster mom wakes me up for breakfast, I love to play with the shoelaces on her slippers! My brother, Mojito (Mojo for short), usually joins in and we have fun while she is trying to get our food put out! Mojo, my other brother, Martini, and I love anything that’s dangly and love to chase wand toys! Tai is more of a catnip kind of girl! I seem to get along great with the other cats in the house, so if you have other kitties, I would be ok with that. Not sure what dogs are, but give me a minute and I’m sure I can figure it out and quickly realize they have tails that make great toys! And if there are kids involved, I’m sure as long as they are sweet to me, I will be sweet to them! If you think I might be the cocktail for you to mix in with your family, fill out an app and let’s get the party started! Maybe you could even consider one of my littermates (Mojito, Tai or Martini) to join us if they are still available! If you want to know more about me, read on!  I come from a litter of 4 kittens. We are all just gorgeous! I am simply a stunning light-colored torby - usually torbies are much darker. My sister, Tai, is a gorgeous calico with stunning orange, black and white markings. My brother, Martini, is an amazing orange with white tabby and I can't leave out my handsome cream & white brother - Mojito! Our mom is a feral kitty that lives near this lady’s house. The lady would put food out for a few of us that would come around and that made us all happy. However, once she saw the 4 of us show up, she knew an indoor life would be better than living in the woods with all the potential dangers lurking around. So she called Purrs & Whiskers to trap us and find us homes. So here we are, waiting for that special someone or family to choose us to be their furever companion! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 3-12-2022 Hi! I'm Martini, one of the Cocktails litter from Purrs & Whiskers! I'm a sweet, but quirky little guy who has learned that indoor life is pretty good! Free food, no predators, no rain...! A pretty good gig, I must say! I've learned what a litter box is and love naps in my comfy cat bed! My foster mom says I'm quirky because I like it best when you pet me up on a high place like a cat tree or bathroom counter. Not sure why, but I just don't stay on the floor to be pet. I'm just weird like that. I love wand toys, catnip and the whole gamut of toys and I like to stay busy! I probably need a friend to help keep me out of trouble. If you don't already have someone in mind for that position, might I suggest my brother Mojito! He is pretty awesome too. If you think I'm the right kitty for you and you are my furever home, fill out an app and let's see how it goes!! If you want to know a little about my history, read on! I come from a litter of 4 kittens. We are all just gorgeous! I am a handsome vibrant orange and white tabby kitten and my brother, Mojito, is an amazing cream with white markings. My sisters are pretty spectacular as well – my sister, Mai, is a light colored torbi and my other sister, Tai, is a really cool looking calico with very dark black and vibrant orange and white colors! My mom is a feral kitty that lives near this lady’s house. She would put food out for a few of us that would come around and that made us all happy. However, once she saw us show up, she knew an indoor life would be better than living in the woods with all the potential dangers lurking around.

Age: approximately 4-5 years old Hello, I'm Mr. Tux! I was living outside for, well, I'm not sure how long as I am not very good at telling time. I wandered up to a volunteer's home because I smelled that she had yummy nom-noms and a warm garage for me to sleep in at night until the rescue had a foster home for me so that I could have my very own cushy bed! Since there was no available foster home placement at the time I was neutered, it was anticipated that I would have to be released back outside so my left ear is "tipped," however the vet made it as small as possible so now it just adds to my handsome charm! Having lived outside on my own for what is believed to have been quite some time, I get a little timid with loud noises at first, so I'm looking for a nice comfy couch to hide under ? ... but don't worry, as soon as I see you I will run out and want LOTS of attention. Even though I lived outside before being rescued I have all GREAT kitty manners and am LOVING stricly indoor living with all the comfy napping spots! My favorite activity is eating all the nom-noms! ? Hmmm, eating is almost tied with being pet by my humans - LOL! I tested negative for FeLV but did test positive for FIV. I do take a daily vitamin supplement (can be ordered on Amazon or Chewy) to keep me very healthy & I wouldn't mind being an "only cat" if you give me lots of lovins. However, if your have another calm, friendly kitty that won't bite me there is plenty of research that says a friendly FIV+ kitty can safely live with a friendly FIV- kitty. Heck, I yawned when I met my foster cat friend! LOL (FIV positive cats cannot spread FIV through casual contact. So, can FIV-positive cats live with non-FIV cats? The short answer is: YES, they most definitely can!) I am neutered, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines, and I can't wait to meet my new family to give me ALL the loves!

Age/DOB: 5-17-21   This is Pumpkin! He has been in foster care for just over a year and it’s time he found his forever home. Don't let. his "grumpy face" fool you! This boy is nothing but love and deserves to be in a forever home that is ready for a sweet, affectionate guy that loves to chase wand toys and lasers but also lounge in your lap to sleep while you give him lots of love! He’s such a sweet guy but has been passed over because he is a young adult and not a kitten. But a sweet guy like this is a gem! Unlike a kitten, you’ll already know his personality. Sweet, loving and kind! He welcomes any new foster cata/kittens that come to his foster mom’s home and is always ready to make a friend. He loves the kittens and gets the nickname of “Uncle Pumpkin” because he loves to watch them play through the kennel gate. If you’re looking for that guy who is sweet, gentle and will be your best friend, Pumpkin is it! Given his sweet nature, he would do great in a household with children, adults, and probably dogs - although he has not been around dogs yet. His foster’s imaginary family for him would be one with one or two young kids (around 6 or older) that are gentle with pets and have lots of love to give. I’m sure he would love to have a kitty friend too as he is very social with any new cats or kittens that arrive in his foster home. If you are willing to give Pumpkin a chance, fill out an adoption application with Purrs & Whiskers and hopefully you can take him home with you! I  need to eat a special diet so my tummy doesn't get upset, but the rescue can tell you more about it if you are interested in me.   A little history about me... I was rescued from a colony that was being cared for by a widow whose husband had recently passed away. He had been the primary caretaker for our colony, but when he passed, his wife took over caring for us. However, some of the cats started having kittens (likes and my littermates) and the lady was put in contact with Purrs & Whiskers (P&W) to help. P&W Trapped, Spayed/Neutered, Vaccinated and Returned (TNVR’d) all the feral adult cats and saved the sweet kittens. Now the colony is stable with the feral cats and the kittens are all finding great homes! I’m hoping to find mine too! Could you possibly be my furever family? Fill out an app and let’s see where this journey takes us! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 7-18-2013 Hi there! My name is Pyewacket. I am a 9 year old fabulous tabby and white kitty who is seeking a new fur-ever home ♥ (I’m a tad chonky but I’m working on that). Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born outdoors and as a kitten I was taken in by a really sweet lady. She noticed that I had an issue with one of my back legs and took me to the vet. The vet wanted to amputate my leg, but she would not let them. The vet said I have a “dropped hock” and that that was what was causing me to have a sore by my “heel”. Fast forward a number of years and my caretaker and I both aged and learned to work with my leg. However, my human became frail and could no longer take care of me. My human had a friend whose daughter works with a fabulous place that could take me in and help me try to find a new place where I could be the queen of a castle, as I’m used to being. Purrs & Whiskers took me to the vet, had bloodwork done to make sure I was healthy and had my teeth cleaned. The bloodwork showed that I needed to be taking Thyroid medication. I’m such a good girl when taking my AM/ PM meds. There’s no fussing at all! I hear the people who care for me discussing what a good girl I am and that the thyroid medication is SO affordable. I don’t understand what $10/ month means, but it must be good. Then my new rescue friends set out on a mission to try to figure out how to make my “heel” less sore. They consulted a few veterinarians and a place called DogLeggs and developed a plan! The great people and DogLeggs made a custom heel protector for me called a hock sock. They even had an extra one made so there would be a back up in case one needed washing. In the mornings and evenings my rescue friends put padding in the inside of my hock sock so when I jump down from the bed I don’t get a heel sore. I’ve never felt so good and I’m ready to live my best life in a great new home. While I did not live around dogs, one of my kitty-sitter's house has a big, 70# gentle pup and I do not react to her.  I'm OK with a passive cat that doesn't want to get in my face or play, but am purrfectly happy being the an only kitty.  I also haven't been around kids, so I’m thinking I’d prefer to be the one-and-only fur or 2-legged kid in my new home. I do enjoy cuddles & head scritches, sleeping in bed with you, being brushed and soaking up sun beams. When no one is watching I sneak in a romping or two with catnip toys too! I have a lot of life and love left in me… I hope you’ll give me a chance to show you how much!  OH... and did I mention how much I LOVE Churu kitty treats??  Nom nom nom! I have had a full geriatric blood panel and a dental cleaning. I take a thyroid medication twice a day and don't mind that at all! I am also spayed, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 3-12-2022 Hi, I’m Tai from the Cocktails litter! I’m a sweet little girl who is full of spunk and learning what inside life is all about. So far, so good! I’ve mastered litter box usage, napping in a soft comfy cat bed, and almost got the hang of using the water bowl for drinking rather than playing! I love to play! My favorite toy is a wand toy, although I kind of like the ball towers too! Either way, if I can make something into a toy, I will! I get along great with other cats and would definitely need another playmate (my sister would be ideal) – even if it’s a dog! I haven’t met one yet, but I’m pretty sure I could get used to it rather quickly. If you adopt me, I doubt I would have a problem becoming your little princess!  If you want to know a little about my history, read on! I come from a litter of 4 kittens. We are all just gorgeous! I am a beautiful calico kitten and my sister Mai is a simply stunning light-colored torby. My brother, Martini, is an amazing orange with white tabby and I can't leave out my handsome cream & white brother - Mojito! Our mom is a feral kitty that lives near this lady’s house. The lady would put food out for a few of us that would come around and that made us all happy. However, once she saw the 4 of us show up, she knew an indoor life would be better than living in the woods with all the potential dangers lurking around. So she called Purrs & Whiskers to trap us and find us homes. So here we are, waiting for that special someone or family to choose us to be their furever companion!

Age/DOB: 7-14-2021 HI, I’m Tsunami! I’m part of the “Naturals” litter (Me, Typhoon, Tornado, Hurricane and Monsoon)! So far Hurricane, Tornado and Monsoon have been adopted and now I’m hoping it’s my turn. My littermates and I came to Purrs & Whiskers (P&W) a little later than most kittens (4/5 mons old), so we have had a bit of a long road adjusting to life inside as far as getting comfortable with hoomans goes. We are all sweet cats, certified as Master Litter Box users, and definitely love a good Churu cat treat. I am a bit shy – my foster mom calls me a “decoration kitty” because I am beautiful and look amazing with my long hair wherever I am – but I am still learning to trust being “boldly” approached by you hooman types! I love to be pet, but I’m always a little suspicious as to why you want to touch me all the time! So, usually I prefer you do that when I’m in my cat tree or window hammock. I don’t bite, scratch or hiss, I just kind of slink away. I’m in with Typhoon and another sweet kitty, Pumpkin, right now, so they are my best buds and help build my confidence. But if it’s dinner time, trust me,my confidence is all there and I’m there and looking at you with my soulful eyes, ready to eat! If I were to picture my purrfect home, it would be a quiet home with some empty nesters or a single person that doesn’t have small children in his/her future plans.  I would probably be fine with other cats (I am fostered with several right now, but mostly Pumpkin & Typhoon) and maybe a dog or two (if they aren’t too rambunctious). I know it’s asking a lot for someone to take a serious look at me to be part of their family, but my foster mom thinks that in the right home, I will flourish and be that kitty you would love to have! If you think you are that person or couple that would be willing to take a chance on me, please fill out an app and let’s see how it goes!! I’m really hoping for a furever home so I can finally be settled, happy and in my furever home for the holidays! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 4-1-2021 HI, I’m Typhoon! I’m part of the “Naturals” litter (Me, Tsunami, Tornado, Hurricane and Monsoon)! So far Hurricane, Tornado and Monsoon have been adopted and now I’m hoping it’s my turn. My littermates and I came to Purrs & Whiskers (P&W) a little later than most kittens (4/5 mons old), so we have had a bit of a long road adjusting to life inside when it comes to living with hoomans. We are all sweet cats, certified as Master Litter Box users, and definitely love a good Churu cat treat. I am a bit shy & a little quirky, but a sweet girl just the same. Like my sister, Tsunami, I am still learning to trust being “boldly” approached by you hooman types, but I am constantly close to my foster mom when she is around! I always have to sniff her shoes before she comes into our room ! =) I love to be pet, but I’m super cautious about letting hoomans do that! However, if it’s time to eat or you have my favorite treat, then you can certainly pet me and even get a head bump or two from me. I don’t bite, scratch or hiss, I just kind of hang in the background hoping I’ll have the courage to let you pet me. There are a few other foster kitties with me right now and they are much more outgoing than I am, so they are always vying for attention, and that makes me a bit nervous. But if it’s dinner time, trust me, I’m there and looking at you and telling you I am ready to eat! My purrfect home would be with Tsunami and it would be a quiet home with some empty nesters or a single person that doesn’t have small children in his/her immediate future plans. I don’t have to have a kitty friend, but it is always nice to have someone around who “speaks your language”! I would be fine with other cats as long as we have proper introductions (I am fostered with several right now) and maybe a dog or two (if they aren’t too rambunctious). I know it’s asking a lot for someone to take a serious look at me to be part of their family or be their companion, but my foster mom thinks that in the right home, I will flourish and be that kitty you would love to have! If you think you are that person or couple that would be willing to take a chance on me, please fill out an app and so you can meet me!! I’m really hoping for a furever home so I can finally be settled, happy and home for the holidays! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 4-20-2022 Hi, I'm Whiz...or preferably Mr. Wiz, The Wiz, Wizzy...but not Whizzer. Let's just get this out in the open - my actual name is weird. So my foster parents call me Wiz. For some reason, my humans say, "Nobody beats the Wiz" a lot when I'm around. (If you ever watched Seinfeld, you may remember the episode with the tv commercial with that phrase in it.) I am totally adorable. I look like I was a white cat half dipped in black paint - and then someone added a bunch of brush strokes to my face. I even have half of a mustache!  I'm kinda shy when you first meet me. I was trapped outside along with my llitternates so I tend to be a little "scaredy-cat" sometimes. It's just who I am - but when I get used to you, I'll be your bestest friend. I am a master baker, especially when it comes to biscuits. And I pair those biscuits with a purr that is super loud. The baked goods and the loud purr are pretty much irresistable! One thing that is really super cute about me: I announce my presence when I come into a room with an adorable "meow." I'm pretty much telling you, "I'm here. Love me!" It's my thing....my brand. I live with a Super Dork Golden Retriever and I've figured out that while he's scary in size, he's not scary in nature. I've headbutted him a few times - and even played with his tail but we don't spoon or anything. I save the close sleeping for my littermates. My favorite kind of sleeping is in a big kitten pile and can often be found at the bottom of that pile! I love chasing the laser pointer and the feather toy and I'm FAST! I can leap over the kittens and have been known to even t-bone them if necessary. Oh, and I can jump. Seriously, it's a special skill I have.  Note from foster mom: Wiz was most shy of the 6 kittens when they arrived at our house - and took the longest to adjust. However, he embraced us and his home with his whole heart. He still struggles with shyness - but he's overcoming it. So, if you want a huge reward from a wonderful kitten - give Wiz the time he needs to get used to you. He'll pay you back with a ton of love and affection. The way to Wiz's heart? Offer him a Churu - he'll be yours forever. Given the shyness, we don't think Wiz would be great in a home with young children - and he would be fantastic with another kitten, maybe Fidget or Jewel or Yo-yo. OH - and I have even learned how to appreciate the catio! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.

Age/DOB: 6-17-22 HI, I’m Willie! I am a sweet little guy who is full of love and playfulness! I am having a blast at my foster mom’s home, but would love to find a home of my own! I love playing with just about anything - wand toys, ball towers, pom-poms, other cats - but I also love to snuggle in your lap when I’m tired and watch a little TV. My foster mom thinks I would like to be in a home with kids and I might even do well with dogs. I’m not sure what either of those are, but I’m a pretty social guy, and she thinks it would probably work out. So, if you are looking for that sweet little one with a touch of crazy to join your family, then I’m it!! Fill out an app and let’s start having fun together! A little more about me: I came from a feral colony that was in the process of being trapped for a TNR program (trap-spay/neuter-release) and I had a bad eye infection. So, they trapped me and fixed me up in about 2 days. I then went with the other cats to be neutered and released back to the colony. However, everyone forgot I was I was just a little too young to get my rabies shot. That meant I couldn’t be released right away and had to stay at my foster mom’s house a little longer than intended. In that time she saw my potential and I became a total love bug! I realized that the indoor life was pretty good and I did not want to go back outside. So, I worked my way into her heart and she asked Purrs & Whiskers if they were willing to put me in the foster program to find me a home! They said yes and I am finally old enough for my vaccination! That means I am ready to find my purrfect home and start living the good life!! Head bumps and purrs to you and I hope we are a match! I am spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution, and am up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines.
