Pua, American shorthair and tabby mix

Pua is a charming male American shorthair and tabby mix being kept at 13th St Cats.

He's already been neutered. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

From Pua's current caretaker:

Pua is a short haired male cat. We adopted him at six weeks of age. Due to our small living environment and him being curious about what's more in the world, we find it best to find him the proper home he deserves. He is fixed and does not spray. He loves treats and food and lots of snuggles throughout the day. He has lived with a small dog his whole life, however he has so much curiosity about other cats as he has a cat friend in our apartment complex. Pua is an indoor only cat who is also fully litter box trained (His favorite thing might be a new change of litter) He is also extremely playful throughout the day and would actually be great with another companion cat friend, so he is not lonely.

Biscuit, domestic shorthair

Biscuit is an adorable male domestic shorthair cat staying at 13th St Cats.

Biscuit is neutered. He is already house-trained.

From Biscuit's current caretaker:

Biscuit was a stray cat that wondered off his cat colony to a nearby neighborhood where he found his human that used to feed other strays in the neighborhood. She noticed that he was super friendly, more than the others, and discovered some of his background through his microchip and some posts on social media. After some time she decided to try him in an indoor environment. He was so friendly and needy of human attention that she knew he deserved his own family. After only one day in his new bedroom, he was loving his indoor life with lots of plays, cuddles and a warm and comfy place to sleep. He loves belly rubs and ear scratches. He is very quiet only talks if strictly necessary. It is very easy to take him to the vet and he relaxes fast in the vet office.

Big Boi, domestic shorthair mix

Big Boi is a male domestic shorthair mix staying at The Dancing Cat.

Big Boi gets along well with other cats. The Dancing Cat, however, recommends he be placed in a home without small children. He's already been neutered.

From Big Boi's current caretaker:

Big Boi shares his name with a famous rappurr. He begged us not to make that bad joke but we all need a good giggle in these strange times. A gentle hearted guy who was tired of the life on the streets, he is ready for that indoor life with a good family. Big Boi enjoys a mellow environment so he would do best in a home with adults or older kids. Big Boi has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus ("FIV") which may lead to a weakening of the cat's immune system. If well cared for, FIV+ cats can lead long, healthy, happy lives, and make wonderful family members.

Sweetie, domestic shorthair mix

Sweetie is a female domestic shorthair mix currently residing at The Dancing Cat.

No other cats, please: Sweetie is looking for cat-free household. Sweetie is spayed.

Here's what Sweetie's friends at The Dancing Cat think of her:

Sweetie lives up to her name and then some. A beautiful tabby who embraces her big curves and full figure with the confidence of an Amazon. We are just getting to know this girl but so far she is attentive, bright, and all sweetness. Sweetie's previous owner says she is not good with other cats or with small kids. Her forever family will want to work with a vet on a healthy diet plan.
