Iris, domestic shorthair mix

Iris is a female domestic shorthair mix currently housed at Silicon Valley Pet Project.

She's already vaccinated. Fear not: She's already house-trained.

Iris' current caretakers say:

Iris often greets at the door and purrs loudly when petted. She pushes up into back scratches and will circle back again and again until she's had her fill and then will settle down somewhere out of the way where she can see everything. She is such a sweet soul, extremely gentle, petite, easily content, polite with good litter-box habits, who loves to watch the daily comings and goings with those gorgeous golden-green eyes.

Liza, Siamese and tortoiseshell mix

Liza is a female Siamese and tortoiseshell mix currently housed at 13th St Cats.

She's mastered her house-training etiquette. She's already spayed and vaccinated.

From Liza's current caretaker:

She was abandoned by her owners who just moved away leaving her behind, alone. After some vet visits and getting her Hyperthyroidism under control, she has been given a clean bill of health. She is an indoor cat only and has excellent litter box habits. A sweet little girl who will look up at you with her deep blue eyes and softly talk to you. She loves having her head rubbed and will follow you around when not checking out the house or sleeping.

Basil, domestic shorthair mix

Basil is a female domestic shorthair mix currently housed at Cat Welfare Advocates.

Basil is looking for a dog-free household. Basil will do best in a home without small children. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She's spayed, and she has had all her shots.

Notes from Basil's caretakers:

Basil is an active kitty who loves to play with everything. Her favorite is the laser pointer. Once she calms down from playing she loves to be pet. She likes belly rubs! Basil is a polydactyl, meaning she has extra toes. She doesn't like dogs and may be O.K. with other cats but needs extra time to get used to another cat.

Taika, domestic shorthair mix

Taika is a female domestic shorthair mix currently housed at The Dancing Cat.

Taika's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She's already spayed.

Taika's current caretakers say:

Do not let age fool you, Taika is as spry as a cat half her age! Curious about her surroundings and bold in her determination, this tabby gal is confident. She needs a day or two to adjust in a new home, but once she does prepare for the snuggles. She likes to make biscuits by kneading blankets, and she'll curl up under your chin or on your shoulder and will bop your face with hers when she wants some extra attention. Taika is a little chatty, purrs loudly and snores even louder. Bust out a wand toy and this hunter will show you how to catch a fuzzy mouse or two.
