Murray loves dogs. No other cats, please: He is looking for cat-free household. He's vaccinated, neutered and house-trained. Murray is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
Here's what Murray's friends at Anna's Cats think of him:
This guy is a friendly, healthy kitten who loves to play with toys, cuddle, and wrestle with his foster brothers. He has been spayed, dewormed, vaccinated and microchipped. He has also tested FelV positive, a contagious retrovirus which may lower his lifespan. He may or may not fight off the virus as he gets older. If he remains FelV positive, he will likely remain happy and healthy for a year or two. when he may become sick and require euthanasia. Until then, he is just a normal kitten! He must also be kept away from direct contact with other cats (unless they are also FelV positive) as long as he remains positive. Please email with a little about your indoor-only home if you'd like to give this guy a chance.

Joellee Oreo, domestic shorthair mix
Joellee Oreo is a winsome female domestic shorthair mix currently housed at San Diego Humane Society.
She is already spayed.
From Joellee Oreo's current caretaker:
How I arrived: I was brought in by my previous owner on June 24, 2019. I can be pretty shy when I meet new people, and it might take me a little longer than most to open up. When I do adjust, I'll come right up to you and meow for attention. I prefer to keep all four paws on the ground — I do not enjoy being cuddled. I do love getting soft pets on my head and some nice cheek rubs! Children make me pretty nervous, so I would prefer to go to a home with adults only. My Personality Color Code is orange, meaning I'm vivacious, enthusiastic, bubbly, vibrant and cheerful. Weight: 15 pounds; age: 11 years.

I have been good with dogs in my previous home, but with any new friends I'd appreciate a nice slow introduction.

Once I get comfortable, you'll see what a sweet and friendly gal I can be. I can be a little sassy sometimes, so I would prefer to live in an adult-only home where everyone could respect my boundaries (but older children might be okay). Weight: 11 pounds; age: age: 2 years.
