Cat Adoption

Powder
Meet Powder! This sweet 8-10 mos male kitten is a love! Neutered and current on all his vaccinations and medical records, the kitty that already lived at Powder’s adoptive home has rejected him and just doesn’t want to accept him in. Powder is dearly loved, incredibly affectionate and quite goofy – his current family want him to have a better life than being constantly fought after by their older kitty. Please contact us if you would like to meet Powder and are interested in adopting him.
