Name: Cheeto

Occupation: Booty Shaker and Smile Maker!

You read that right! I’m what you might call a “wiggle butt”! I may take a little bit to get to know you, but once I do, I love my human friends with all my heart! When I see my human friends, I wiggle from the tip of my nose to the tip of my tail! I am looking for a family that has experience with leash reactivity. I tend to overstimulate and forget its not polite to grab at my leash. I have a blast working on my skills up to the agility building at MAS. I love learning new tricks, and stimulating my brain all while working out my energy too! I am a very smart boy, I like to work on commands like “touch”, “over”, “sit”, “stay”, “lay down”, and “shake”. I would be best suited for a calm and quiet home without kids or other pets.

If you would like to get some more information to bring me into your home, submit an application today, so I can wiggle my way right into your heart!

Bishop is a 65 pound, 2 year old Staffy Mix with the sweetest, most endearing presence !! We adore him. His foster humans describe him as a gentle, old soul who is so affectionate and snuggly; he has a mellow laid back presence, he brings so much love to his home. He is very smart and loves learning new things; he would love to go to classes with his forever humans. Bishop takes a moment to come out of his shell, but it doesn’t take him long at all to be someone’s new best friend. Bishop is house trained and doing a fantastic job with his crate training. He hasn’t met any cats or children yet, so introductions would be needed before adoption. Bishop likes to make dog friends on a short walk before jumping into play. Bishop is neutered and up to date on shots. His adoption fee is $250. To adopt Bishop apply online.

Thor’s story of how he came to us is heartbreaking. Thor was living with a woman in her room at a motel. When the owners found out she had a cat, she was told he had to leave. Totally distraught and with no idea of where to bring him, she put him in a knapsack and got on a city bus. She happened upon a local pet store where, as luck would have it, one of our volunteers happened to be at. When our volunteer heard the story, she knew she had to help. She brought Thor to a foster home where he was at for several months, in a kennel, crying each day for his human. When space opened up, we were able to bring him into our program. Thor was adopted out but, due to circumstances beyond his control, he had to be returned. This sweet boy is looking for a family he can call his own.

About Thor:
Thor is not your average cat; he’s a shy monarch with a striking coat, an affinity for feather wands, and a passion for climbing to new heights. At 4 years old, Thor is in his prime, making him the purr-fect age for a lifetime of adventures and cuddles.

Allergy Adaptation:
It’s important to note that Thor has environmental allergies, which may cause him to sneeze, cough, and breathe loudly. However, this resilient feline has adapted remarkably well to managing these challenges. His occasional sneezes and coughs are a small price to pay for the joy and companionship he brings.

Shy Beginnings:
Thor may be a bit shy at first, but give him the time and space to acclimate to his new kingdom, and you’ll witness the transformation of a timid warrior into a confident and affectionate companion.

Playful Nature:
Thor’s love for toys knows no bounds, especially when it comes to feather wands. Watch in amazement as he pounces, leaps, and conquers his feathered foes with grace and skill. If you’re looking for a feline companion to join in the fun, Thor is your go-to playmate!

King of Heights:
Thor is not just a ground dweller – he’s a climbing connoisseur! Whether it’s cat trees, shelves, or your shoulders, Thor loves to explore and find the perfect vantage point to survey his kingdom.

Sunbeam Soaker:
When he’s not on his royal perch, Thor adores basking in sunbeams. Provide him with a cozy spot by the window, and he’ll turn every sunny day into a warm and contented nap session.

Ideal Home:
Thor is seeking a kingdom where patience reigns, and calmness prevails. A household with a tranquil environment and patient companions will allow Thor to blossom into the affectionate and goofy goofball he truly is. Thor is open to alliances with other cats, but they must be confident or he will rule over them with a mighty fist. Dogs are a threat to his kingdom and not allowed.

Affectionate Transformation:
Once comfortable and confident, Thor transforms into a big goofball who adores belly rubs and is ready to share his love with his chosen human. Get ready for a lifetime of laughter and warmth as Thor opens his heart to you.

Thor has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He has an approximate birthdate of April, 2019. His adoption fee is $95.
