Gaby likes to lay on her back with her paws in the air inviting belly rubs. She’s friendly and affectionate too. When not soaking up attention, she likes to soak up the sun while watching the world from her cat tower perch. Gaby is fine with dogs, but she doesn’t care for other cats.

Winston is sweet, calm and gentle. He seems shy until you give him a toy (he loves to chase and catch them) and play with him. Winston is curious and likes to investigate his surroundings. He’s comfortable with people and would make a great companion. He likes being held and loves to be petted especially on his chin. He stretches his head and soaks it up, like he’s saying more please.
