Blue Bell, domestic shorthair and Russian blue mix
Blue Bell is a female domestic shorthair and Russian blue mix staying at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
Her vaccinations are up to date, and she has been spayed. She has work to do on house-training etiquette.
What my friends at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue think of me:
Blue Bell is very friendly, so we think she will be fine with other cats and kids. I’m looking for a family that loves cuddly, lovable cats. She is out of the crazy kitten stage but is still very playful and has a lot of energy to burn.

Logos, domestic shorthair
Logos is a male domestic shorthair cat being kept at City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties.
Logos is a social animal; he gets along well with other cats. He is vaccinated, and he has been neutered. Good news: He is already house-trained.
Logos's friends say:
This cute-faced snuggly ball of love has a carefree cat-titude and will nap anywhere. There isn't a cat Logos hasn't loved. Maybe it's his indiscriminate love for all toys, strings and balls that he loves to play fetch with. Logos really is a gentle and sweet cat who would do well in any household.
