Hey there, I’m Pookie! I am a sweet, loving kitty who is looking for a new forever home. How about you? I lived in the same place with the same person and cat friends for a long time, so I’m still a little bit nervous in new situations and am trying to come out of my shell. But, once I get comfortable with new people and places, I love being petted and especially love being brushed. I’m a purring machine, and will occasionally bump my nose against my foster mom’s nose to let her know how grateful I am for her taking care of me. Overall I’m just an easy, good-natured cat who can’t wait to find a new home. Do think that home could be yours?

Lulu here! Hi — I am a sweet, sweet girl who greets humans by purring and rolling onto my back for scratches and affection! My coat is especially soft and healthy. I have tan markings and mostly white fur. I love stretching, long naps and playing with strings. I am an easy-going girl and will do well with a big family or a quiet home.

Well, until someone comes up with Kitty Cross-Fit, the answer is playtime — lots and lots of playtime. When we are finally done playing, I will reward you with my sweetness and even some kitty kisses. Have you ever been kissed by a kitty? It's a unique experience and one, I hope, that you will love.
