Description: Dawson is handsome, with the longest legs you have ever seen. He was found scrounging for food and nursing a wounded foot, but he is recovering beautifully and will be a wonderful companion. It will be a lucky person who adopts this friendly, well-mannered boy, who is so eager to be part of an active and caring family. Don't miss out on adopting your new best friend.

Description: Eileen is very relaxed and is a true lap cat. She can cuddle on your lap for hours. Eileen came to us with an injured leg that we thought would have to be amputated, but it is getting better every day. Eileen loves to be around people, enjoys the company of other cats, and is fine around dogs.
