Elmo's just a doll.  He is beautiful and sweet with a great big fluffy tail.  He likely has some maine coon or persian in his genetics (or both). He is about 15 lbs now, but is expected to get bigger.  While we do not know for sure exactly what his breed is, he is very similar to look and mannerism of a ragdoll.  He has soft silky long hair, is very affectionate (once he gets to know you), and he likes to be held.  He loves to play and has a great temperment. He seeks attention and affection and his favorite thing to do to relax himself before he falls asleep is to suck on your earlope. We thought his habit would fade as he got older but so far, he still seeks out your ear if he is getting sleepy.  He is a little charmer. He is afraid of dogs so needs a dog-free home.  He is also a bit shy around very young children.  He is great with other cats.  Elmo has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.  He tested neg for Feline Leukemia and tested positive for FIV.  FIV is an often misunderstood virus, so please read up on it before passing on Elmo. FIV is not a danger to you, your cats, or dog.  It is not easily transferred to other cats unless through a deep muscular bite wound (like from two unneutered Tom cats fighting).  There is no cure, however, he does not need any ongoing treatment, just regular vet visits like any cat  and proper care as all kitties (good food, good home environment, vet visits). To read more about his condition please see  http://fivcats.com/FIV/fiv_common_myths.html If you have questions please email karie@pawsforlifenc.org. If you would like to adopt Elmo, please go to our website and just hit the "adopt" button below his picture. Cut and paste this link and it wil take you to his page. https://petstablished.com/pets/public/252380?awo=Paws+For+Life+NC&widget=true  Estimated Birthday - 4/8/18.  show less

Seeking a lap to curl up in. He is the sweetest most handsome boy you will ever meet. He loves to cuddle and sleep with you at night, He even follows you around the house.  He is a content fellow and not demanding. He loves lounging on a cat tree or sitting on a screened porch. He is a very "chill" kitty. He is great with kids of any age.  A portion of Talbert’s adoption fee is being paid for by a grant from the Petfinder Foundation! His adoption fee is reduced from $95 to $40 for the month of April. Talbert is neutered, dewormed, microchipped, and negative for feline leukemia. He is FIV positive. This will not affect his lifespan but will require an attentive owner who will be sure he gets good nutrition and annual health checks. FIV is only spread by deep bite wounds which means at some point he was attacked by another cat. If you are not familiar with this virus please read about it at http://fivcats.com/FIV/fiv_common_myths.html. Many FIV positive cats are living completely normal lives in homes everywhere without being identified because not all cats are tested. Talbert was also diagnosed with stomatitis, a disease of the gums. He has had his teeth removed to cure this. He will need to be kept indoors for his safety and provided wet food. But he is such a special boy he will be worth it! If you are interested or have any questions about Talbert you can email susanne@pawsforlifenc.org  OR go to www.pawsforlifenc.org to fill out an application. Talbert is also available to foster. show less

Vinnie is a very loving cat. He will give lots of head bumps if given the opportunity. If you are rubbing him and stop but he wants more he will reach out and put his paw on your hand. That means keep rubbing 😹. He has been known to give love nibbles too. Vinnie is a wonderful 4-5 year old. Vinnie has yet to meet another cat he cannot get along with as long as they act the same.  He has not been exposed to dogs yet so I am unsure how he would be with them. He has also never been around children but as long as the children understand “gentle touches“ then I think Vinnie would be fine with them.   Vinnie is a big boy but don’t let his size fool you. He runs through the house like he is on a nascar track. And when he is tired he will nap beside you. He also enjoys being up high so can see what is going on so a cat tree/scratching tree would be wonderful for him.  He has a severe allergy to fleas and will need to be kept on monthly flea prevention to prevent future problems. He also tends to be a little chubby so he will need to have controlled feeding. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all age appropriate shots. If this sounds like the man for you please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption form at http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/cat-adoptions/cat-adoption-form/. We will be glad to let you come to our home and meet him. He deserves a family to love him forever. A portion of Vinnie’s adoption fee is being paid for by a grant from the Petfinder Foundation! His adoption fee is reduced from $95 to $40 for the month of April. Foster mom:  April Sipfle  aprilsipfle01@gmail.com    919-495-9618 show less
