Notes from Tux's caretakers:
Tux is truly a sweet playful cat who purrs by you just looking at him. He is declawed, so he needs to be strictly indoors. He loves to play and look out the window.

More from Little:
Hi! My name is Little and I am looking for a new roommate. Someone that doesn't disturb my beauty sleep and is on time with the rent (by rent I mean food — I like food payments). I have a hyperthyroid condition, which is totally manageable. All I need is medication and love. I may not be a spring chicken, but don't overlook me. I will love on you and make a great addition to your life.

Coal is a sweet kitten but a bit timid around people. His foster mom is working on that. Coal loves playing with other cats and kittens and is good around dogs. Coal's favorite game is chasing a shoelace another cat will drag around. He can really pounce!

All this girl wants is to cuddle with her human. Luckily she has transitioned well into her foster home. We hope Bella's new owners will cherish her for the rest of her life just as it should have been from the start. She would probably do best in a quiet home.
