Daisy, domestic shorthair mix

She's been spayed, and she has all her shots. Fear not: She is already house-trained.
Daisy's current caretakers say:
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.

Newt, Maine coon and tabby mix
Newt is a male Maine coon and tabby mix being cared for at Happy Cats Haven.
Newt is looking for a dog-free family. He will do best in a home without small children. He has mastered his house-training etiquette, and he has been vaccinated and neutered.
Notes on Newt:
My foster mom says I love head rubs and will come running for them if you snap your fingers. 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.

Ocela, tabby and domestic shorthair mix

No other pets please: Ocela is looking for a forever home without other dogs or cats. She's already house-trained, and she has been spayed and vaccinated.
More about Ocela:
I love to just hang out with my favorite people, rolling over on my back, flirting and purring (just no belly rubs please). 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. I really just want to play.
