Daisy, domestic shorthair and tuxedo mix

Daisy is a charming female domestic shorthair and tuxedo mix being cared for at Mission for Paws.

Daisy is nothing if not a family cat, and children will love her. Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she is spayed. She's already house-trained.

Here's what Daisy's friends at Mission for Paws think of her:

Daisy is looking to spend her golden years with possibly a human companion who is an elder retiree like herself. Daisy would welcome a person of any age who is willing to accomodate this extremely affectionate kitty's desire for cuddling, pets and lap time. Daisy would prefer to be the center of attention in a home but could possibly time share with one other resident pet as long as she is allotted her fair share of the lap time.

Mia, domestic shorthair

Mia is a female domestic shorthair cat currently residing at Loving Arms Pet Placement.

Mia's current caretakers say:

Mia is very calm . She is curious, playful and very affectionate. When petted, she drops and purrs. She is a dainty little lady!  Mia lives with other cats and dogs in her foster home.

Larry, domestic longhair

Larry is a charming male domestic longhair cat being cared for at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.

No other pets please: Larry is looking for family without other dogs or cats. Larry is neutered and vaccinated. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Larry's current caretakers say:

Yes, Larry is his real name! Like many cats, Larry has his own unique personality and quirks. When he sees one of his favorite humans, he’ll run up and meow, demanding to be acknowledged. You can tell when he’s completely at ease when he’s sleeping upside down (one of his favorite ways to sleep). Larry is a cat that likes humans, not a cat that likes other cats (or dogs really, sorry!). So, Larry would do best in a home with no other pets.

Hallie, domestic shorthair

Hallie is a lovable female domestic shorthair cat currently housed at Loving Arms Pet Placement.

Hallie is a social butterfly — she's happy to keep company with children, dogs or cats. Hallie is spayed and vaccinated. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. Hallie is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

Notes from Hallie's caretakers:

Hallie is a unique kitty. She was found with a badly broken rear leg, that had to be amputated. But she still runs like the wind and climbs furniture, cat trees and more. Nothing stops her. Hallie loves being cuddled and tends to gravitate to your neck and nuzzle there, purring. Hallie started out as a black kitten, but her fur is now flecked with white and continues to change every day. Hallie plays with toys and other cats.

More from Rocky:

I’m Rocky and I’m a bundle of sweetness and calm. I love giving kisses and I can talk up a storm when I’m hungry or want pets. I love meeting new people and cats, getting pets, being held, sitting in laps and playing with toys. I’m more chill than "thrill"! When I join your family you won’t see me throwing any punches because I’ll be too busy being a sweetie pie. I’d love to be part of an active, loving family; I wouldn’t mind a feline sibling either.
