Daisy, domestic shorthair mix
Daisy is a female domestic shorthair mix being cared for at Happy Cats Haven.
Daisy is already spayed, and she has had all her shots. She has mastered her house-training etiquette.
Notes from Daisy's caretakers:
Daisy may take a couple of minutes to make sure you're kind and caring before she gives her heart away. Once she is reassured, though, she becomes the most affectionate little companion you'd ever want. She seems to do well in most households that are more on the calm side. Daisy has done well with dogs and cats in the past, but bullies or hyperactive animals would not bring out the confident little cat we've grown to love.

Laclare, domestic longhair
Laclare is a darling female domestic longhair cat currently housed at Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary.
She is already house-trained and has been vaccinated and spayed.
Notes about Laclare:
I am very friendly and talkative. I'm not a lap lover. However, I do love petting, and playing with toys. I get along with other kitties in my foster home and I hold my ground when needed.

Newt, Maine coon and tabby mix
Newt is a charming male Maine coon and tabby mix being cared for at Happy Cats Haven.
Newt is looking for a dog-free forever home. Newt would prefer a home without small children. His vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.
More about Newt:
I really appreciate getting to know you well before being snuggled or picked up. If backed into a corner, I can go into defensive mode, but give me enough space to work it out and I'm your gentle giant. I'm a little afraid of men, so the fellows in the house may have to work a little harder to earn my trust. Loud noises and lots of activity make me want to hide. I do like other cats but can be a bit forward with them, so will do best with other easygoing guys like me.

Ocela, tabby and domestic shorthair mix
Ocela is a charming female tabby and domestic shorthair mix in the care of Happy Cats Haven.
No other pets please: Ocela is looking for forever home without other dogs or cats. She is already house-trained, has had all of her shots, and she is spayed.
Notes on Ocela:
I'm a perfect sidecar cat, the one who likes to be near you but not especially right on your lap. I tend to get excited with too much petting and move into play mode, which can make me seem aggressive. Please let me show you when I've had enough so that you can stop petting before I accidentally scratch or bite.

Sammy, Dilute tortoiseshell and tabby mix
Sammy is a female Dilute tortoiseshell and tabby mix being cared for at Happy Cats Haven.
She is already house-trained. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she has been spayed.
More about Sammy:
I am a snuggle bunny and enjoy giving people head bonks and loud purrs. My sister Sissy and I would do best in a calmer family who is looking for more of a cuddle companion than a playing companion.
