BB is a beautiful kitten who remains a bit shy with new people. He loves to play, especially with a wand toy and will settle in with a family able to give him some transition time.How does your cat react when being held? How does your cat feel about being picked up? Doesn't like to be picked up by new or unfamiliar people. Will warm up to it with people he knowsHow do they play with you? Loves a wand toy, loves to battle with balls, loved to rough house with his siblings. Good idea to play with him to let him get to know youWhat is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : skittish with new people. Will warm up over time. Best to play with him and then pet him while he's tired. Needs someone who can give him the transition time he needs, then will be more confident and snugglyIs there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this cat, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? again, needs time with new people. Did become confident with us, but took some work. Will do better without his siblings as one sibling was super friendly and a bit aggressive to him. Once comfortable with a person does love a snuggle and a pet when tired. Will happily play for hours with a wand toy!

Hi, I'm Brinny and I want to be your 24/7 cuddle buddy and exercise companion. I love keeping you company while you work by sitting on your lap, but I'm always ready for a walk, a run, or a crazy zoomie session. I especially love sitting on your lap with my head in the crook of your elbow and my tummy in the air, waiting for tummy rubs. I can be shy at first, but once you've won my heart, I'll drape myself over your arms, cuddle, kiss, and beg for tummy rubs. My foster mom says I'm already acing my potty training and crate training at night.My ideal family will spend a lot of time with me at home-- I want to be with you 24/7 and I'm going to need some time, patience, and practice to be left alone without you. I may do better with a quiet home with adults or older kids. I believe Brinny already has familiarity with potty training. She does not signal when she needs to go out, but I take her out several times per day and she does her business. If she doesn't go, getting her moving (10min walk) tends to help. Her only accident was on her first morning when I let her out of the crate but didn't rush her outside. Getting her outside as soon as she's out of the crate has worked perfectly.Brinny does seem to naturally like "dens" but because she traveled home in the crate, was initially hesitant of confinement. We started with the base and top tied open and lots of treats and praise for going inside. She's continued to get her meals, kongs, and surprise find-its in her crate. She has slept in the crate every night. Primary Color: Tan Secondary Color: Cream Weight: 10.31 Age: 2yrs 0mths 2wks show less

Animal's Name: CarsonAnimal ID Number: 180516What should your foster's bio say?Carson is an incredibly sweet and snuggly dog. His favorite place in the house is on the couch right next to you! He loves cuddles, naps, belly rubs, and longs to be right next to you. He is eager to please and is doing great with learning to walk on a leash!When he is not snuggled up next to you, he enjoys walks and the occasional game of tug of war. He is also slowly starting to understand the concept of fetch.Once you meet Carson (and are showered in his kisses), he is sure to snuggle his way into your heart and home.What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working? For the most part he is house trained, but unless you leave him with a wee-wee pad overnight, you should make sure to take him for a walk first thing in the morning. We kept a wee-wee pad with him overnight with a little bit of his pee on it and he took to using it overnight very quickly! Since he started using it overnight, he has had no accidents. If you are an early riser and take him out first thing, he probably will be fine without the pad.Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction? NoHow many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone? NoneWhat is their behavior like with other animals?Unfortunately, he has not had too many interactions with other animals while with us.DogsHe briefly met two large dogs while out on walks. The first was very energetic and scared Carson a bit. The second dog he met was very calm and they had a pleasant short interaction.CatsHe has not met any cats.OtherLike many dogs, he dashes and tries to chase squirrels and birds.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : With both my husband and me, after a quick sniff of our hands, he became very friendly and trusting. When passing some strangers on the street he shows a friendly interest, though at other times, with no clear pattern, he seems scared. At no point have I seen aggression, but some people he would prefer to give a wide berth. I think that if he was introduced to a stranger in a calm setting, he would quickly take to them.Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits?Carson is a super sweet dog who is very aware of how you are doing. When I was not feeling too well, he brought me his toy, tried to play with me, and kept inspecting and licking me. It was adorable.Sometimes if you start petting him while he is sitting, he will actually start falling as you pet him!He has also started learning some basic commands such as sit, stay, and down.

Hi, my name is Chico. I am a sweet little boy, all black fluff and purrs. I like to set still and watch quietly what's going on, and then I'll dive in for all the fun. Once I've met you, my favorite spot is curled up on your shoulder, under your chin. But I still love my chasing my toys around the room. And I'll share a secret with you. I have a tiny bend at the end of my tail. It makes me unique. Please ask to meet me.How does your cat react when being held? How does your cat feel about being picked up? Loves being held and being picked up. Purrs when being petted or held.How do they play with you? He's one of three kittens, so plays more with his fellow kittens than with me. But he will chase wands and balls.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : Very docile when meeting new people. Let's them hold him. Has not met any children.What is their behavior like with other animals? Curious about my other cats, but does not run up to them.What kind of litter box setup did you have for your cat? How would you describe their success using the litter box? I had several uncovered litter boxes around the room where he stayed, plus one box in our family room, so he could always find one. He is good about peeing and pooping in the box.Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this cat, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? He's comfortable being by himself and watching the world. He likes to be on your shoulder or above your head on a chair. He purrs when you pet him. He's sweet and quiet. He knows the words "Who's hungry?" and will come running when he hears it, assuming you're about to put a plate of food down. Primary Color: Black Weight: 1.86 Age: 0yrs 3mths 0wks show less
