Highlighted Cats
See all the Cats!
Currently living at: In foster in NC, looking for her forever. . Victoria has been returned to PAWS again due to no fault of her own. Her adoptive family is heartbroken to give her up but need to do what is best for her. Victoria is fantastic with humans but does not like to share them with other cats. She gets along well with the other cats in her foster home but definitely can be choosy. Victoria was hit by a car when she was a little baby and will always have a unique super more about Victoria
  Lorna Doone
Currently living at: Foster while waiting on forever.They named me Lorna Doone. Although it is the name of a cookie, it also fits me. While many torties have what they call a "tortietude" I am more of a laid back lovable kinda girl. I like to be with people. I could hop on your bed in the morning to get some cuddles or keep you company while watching tv. If you want to play I love to chase the laser. My foster mom says I am fantastic, who am I to disagree. I have beautiful more about Lorna Doone
