Iris, Maine coon mix
Iris is a female Maine coon mix currently residing at The Dancing Cat.
Iris' ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Iris is spayed. Iris is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Iris' current caretakers say:
Iris is a gorgeous girl with a heart even more beautiful. Her long fur commands attention and her green eyes mesmerize. Beyond being a stunner she is sweet and interested in people. If you want a gentle companion who will stay near you once she acclimates, this is the cat for you. Iris struggles a bit with change and needs plenty of time to acclimate to a new space. Iris would thrive in a quiet home and she may be happiest as your only pet. Iris does not use a litter box, this is a behavior that despite much effort has not resolved. In the distant past she has used a litter box but will not use one anymore. She will need a home where this behavior can be accommodated.

Taika, domestic shorthair mix
Taika is an adorable female domestic shorthair mix being cared for at The Dancing Cat.
Taika wants to be your one and only: She will need a home free of other cats. She is already spayed.
Here's what Taika's friends at The Dancing Cat think of her:
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. If you want to be the safe and loving home that a spritely senior deserves, consider improving your own quality of life by letting Taika into it.

Nara, domestic mix
Nara is a female domestic mix currently housed at The Dancing Cat.
Nara will get along great with your other cats, dogs and children. Nara is already spayed.
From Nara's current caretaker:
Beautiful Nara is practically perfect in every way! When rescued, this spunky girl had a nasty kitty cold, but now she's recovered and is ready to go. Even when she was feeling sickly, Nara was sweet and tolerant. This well-rounded kitty gets along well with everyone--other cats, dogs, and children included. She has thrived in a high-energy foster home, and there just isn't much this kitty can't handle. She loves equal parts play and cuddle, and she's ready for her forever home today.

He's already been neutered.
Puck's current caretakers say:
Puck is here, and he's ready to party! If you're looking for a confident guy who will come into your house and own the place, Puck is your guy. Puck would be a good fit for a family with kids who love cats and know how to interact with them. Upon reaching his foster home, he took no time making himself right at home. He enjoys playing and cuddling, and he also really enjoys chatting. He's got a lot to tell you, and if you're ready to listen, you should apply to meet this great guy today.

Zeus, Maine coon and domestic longhair mix
Zeus is a male Maine coon and domestic longhair mix being cared for at The Dancing Cat.
Zeus loves other cats. He is already neutered.
Notes from Zeus' caretakers:
Zeus aspires to be as bold and mighty as his name, but for now he is content to just be worshipped. Zeus needs a little time to adjust to new environments but once he acclimates he is a tender and curious guy. He adores a window view and would like a home that is bright and sunny with plenty of vistas. Affectionate and gentle, Zeus wants to experience lots of love and give even more.
