Every Life Matters

Featured Kitten

Hi, my name is Finnick and I’m looking for lasting love through adoption. You see, I spent the first 2.5 months of my life in a foster home, so I know exactly what it means to be loved and give love. I know what it means to cuddle and snuggle, to purr until my humans hearts have melted and how to play like the best of them! Through all of my experience with toys (and I have a LOT), I have to say that my favorite toy is the cat dancer. I love to play with anything I can bat in the air. I’m not one to brag, but I’m pretty fast and can usually catch it, too!

When I’m not playing or snuggling, I’m usually daydreaming about the day that a family will walk in, point at me and say, “he’s the one”! Oh, I just cannot wait for that day. I really hope it comes soon, too. All I ask of my new family is for them to love me and in return, I promise to do the same.


Quick News


Featured Kitten

Known for being good natured, Fauna’s name fits her personality perfectly. She is extremely easy going and easy to please. Fauna is undemanding and as long as she has a companion to keep her busy or a human to snuggle, she is happy. When playing, Fauna loves to play chase with play mice and scratch the cardboard toys. When she’s done playing, she likes to find a cushy spot to observe the other cats and watch the world around her.

Fauna is full of life and playfulness. She loves playing with other kittens and cats and isn’t afraid of making new friends. She would do well in a home with other pets. Although she’d do fine in a home with kids, she’d be just as happy in an adult-only environment. What can we say – we weren’t kidding when we said she’s easy going!
