Sweet Baby Ray loves people and follows them everywhere. He’s affectionate and is quite the talker. He has a ball playing with light toys and chasing things. He gets excited easily, so he can get quite spirited when he’s wound up. He’s new so we aren’t sure if he would be OK with other cats.

Cat Middleton is a real sweetheart. This petite girl can’t get enough love, lap time and being brushing. She’s quite friendly, quiet, gentle and easy-going. When she’s happy, she flutters her tail very cutely to let you know she’s content. She would do best in a home as the only pet where she could thrive.
