012617 Boda

Booda

My name is Booda. My foster mom calls me a "wise kitty". She says it is because I have "wise eyes" like an owl and because of the way I sit back and watch everything that is going on around me. I like to do that from high places, like my picture where I'm on top of the cat tree, it gives me the best view. It also keeps me out of the way. You see, I'm a young senior, just 7 years old, but I prefer the laid back lifestyle. If you are looking for a quiet companion to ...

Panda Bear got his name from not only his Black & White coloring but also from his rounded ears that were a result of frostbite damage. The poor little guy has spent most of his life outdoors without much human contact so is still in need of some socialization. He plays a little rough so he would be best in a home with patient adults. He gets along well with the other cats at the shelter. DOB: September 2008 ...

She has come a long ways since then and is now happy to run around and play with her foster siblings. Lucy still gets scared of loud noises and sudden movements, but she recovers much faster.

I've adapted quickly to this idea of being an indoor kitty. I like belly rubs, playing with my jingle ball, and snuggles. I currently have a room to myself. I would ...
