Featured Cats & Kittens

Venus, Fergus, and Marcus are 4 months old and fixed and vetted.  They were born to a shy, stray mama kitty who entered someone's basement via their open doggy door. We were called in and I was able to remove the kittens once they were weaned.  Venus, the brown girl tabby, is the most outgoing and adventurous of the trio.  Marcus, white/gray tabby is a sweetheart and very calm. Fergus, also a female, is the other white/gray tabby and is quite shy at first but very sweet once she trusts you.
