Here's more from Georgia:

Hi, my name is Georgia and I'm the sweetest kitty around! People say cats are colorblind, but I actually prefer the color red. If you give me red toys, I'll play with them all day! Then we can snuggle up on the couch and you can brush my beautiful coat, as long as you don't try to pick me up. If you have a nice closet or leave a drawer open, I might just play hide and seek with you, but I'll always come out eventually, just to spend some quality time with you.

Homie, tabby and domestic shorthair mix

Homie is a sweet male tabby and domestic shorthair mix being cared for at Save A Purrfect Cat Rescue.

Homie is ready to make friends — he'll get along great with other cats. He's already house-trained. He's already vaccinated and neutered.

From Homie's current caretaker:

As a foster kitty, I was very affectionate from day one, though a little timid. I followed my fosters around their apartment and cried when they weren't next to me. That first night, I slept next to one of my fosters with her hand on my fur. Now, after vet care and good food and regular attention, my confidence is high. I get along great with my fosters' cat and my favorite things to do are eat, play, and get neck rubs. I purr pretty much every chance I get. My fosters say I'm the sweetest cat they've known and that I deserve a great forever home.
