This big boy is a mush for affection and loves to greet people. He also is a food hound who is always seeking out treats from staff and volunteers!When Albie was first rescued, he was too weak to stand up and now after months of recuperating this boy is on the go. When not snuggled up in warm blankets taking naps, Albie enjoys going on walks and meeting new friends. DingoDingo is a large white and tabby cat with an unusual face that makes him look like he’s squinting. He is a very affectionate boy who loves getting chin scratches and will follow his favorite staff members around. This guy is a gentle giant who is just looking for someone to love him and spoil him the way he deserves. Midnight is a sweet 6-month-old long-hair kitten. She is active and loves playing with catnip mice. She is a stunning girl with a sweet personality who loves getting affection and being held. Midnight would do great as a spoiled solo cat or in a multi cat household where she would have someone to play with. Sebastian is a gentle giant who prefers to curl up in your lap rather than be in the center of the action. He is a large kitty who is great at snuggling and would be the perfect companion to watch movies with.
