Marigold is a sweet and pretty orange female. Did you know orange fur in a female is very rare? 

Marigold has vertical nystagmus (eyes going up and down) and a head bob that are most likely due to a past injury or illness. These things do not affect her ability to see or navigate around or rub against you for pets. She is otherwise healthy but needs a quiet, calm home where she can relax and get some special attention.

Queen Snowball

Meet Snowball, a stunningly gorgeous 1 to 2 year old girl. Snowball has a luxurious white coat of medium to long hair and a super puffy tail. This beautiful girl is ready for a home where she can thrive! 

Snowball gets along with easy going cats. She needs a cat-savvy owner that can learn her cues and let interactions be on her terms : She'll rub against you and meow for attention, but she is also not shy about telling you when she's had enough. She loves to sprint around the house chasing toys and jump in the empty bathtub. Snow has only been in foster for 2 weeks and has already gotten a lot more relaxed so we strongly suspect she will continue to get more and more affectionate and laid back with time.

I really want to make her happy plus it didn’t take me long to figure out that I get yummy treats for doing my new tricks.

Tootsie Roll

Hey! Are you looking for an exercise companion? If so, Tootsie Roll's the name and losing pounds is my game. It happens as we approach middle age...our metabolism slows down and the pounds just add up. I am ready to make a commitment to being healthy. I will do my best not to overeat (so I need someone who will measure my food and be stingy with treats) and try to get regular exercise . I do love to go for walks. I go at a good pace. I am 8 years old and short in stature.
