Icarus, Persephone and Pandora are all domestic shorthair cats that are three months old. They were surrendered shortly after being born, and Purple PAWS took them in.

They can be shy at first until they warm up to you and then they enjoy cuddling next to you. They are very playful kittens and love naps.

They love the company of other kitties and adore attention. They would be good in a family with cats, dogs or kids.

Waffles is a domestic shorthair that is one year old. He was an owner surrender that Purple PAWS took in.

It take a little while for him to come out of his shell, but once he does he loves to cuddle and adores chin scratches. He enjoys napping the majority of the day and lounging on the couch.

He would do best with another cat around or a lot of human attention. He loves as much affection as he can get. He would do fine in a home with dogs, cats or kids.

Squirt is a one-year-old domestic shorthair tabby. He was an owner surrender that Purple PAWS took in.

Squirt is a shy boy at first but after he gets acclimated to new people and surroundings, he starts to let his guard down. He loves getting pets and is big on cuddles.

He gets along with cats, dogs and children. He would be perfect for a family or a person looking for a low-maintenance pet.
