More from Rachel:
I'm a sweet mom who was living as stray in an apartment complex. My kids will soon be gone, so it's time for me to find a forever home of my own. I'm a girl who loves people. I tolerate other cats, but don't really care for them. I'd be happiest curling up with my own person and forgetting the harsh life I had before. If you're looking for a gentle girl to purr the nights away, I could be for you. Come visit and let's find out.

Big Ham, domestic shorthair mix
Big Ham is a male domestic shorthair mix staying at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.
He is already house-trained. He's been vaccinated and neutered.
Here's more from Big Ham:
Not only am I a friendly lap cat, but I’m also low maintenance. Whew, who would pass that up? I’m Big Ham and I was left behind at an apartment complex. I’m a calm kitty who enjoys long pets, being held, catnip and cat scratchers! Sometimes I like to find a spot that I can call my own and it just might be a box! I’m searching for a lap(s) to crawl into, but a heart or hearts to crawl into too. Can you fill that request?

Illia's current caretakers say:
Meet Illia. She was found by a kind family and they took her to the vet and she received a clean bill of health. Illia is about 2 years old. She's a little shy at first, but sleeps on the bed. We would love to find her a loving family to call her own, where she will be treasured and loved and kept safely inside.
