Sissy and Kaz
Sissy (left) and Kaz (right) are two 5 to 7-year-old bff’s awaiting their furever home. They are the cutest friends ever and would be very sad if they weren’t together, so they are a package deal! Sissy and Kaz get so excited to see their human friends, that they get the zoomies to show how much they missed them. One last thing, they are not big fans of tiny humans, so kids over the age of 12 or an adult only home would best suit them.
Kitty is a 5 to 7-year-old female who would love to find her furever home. Kitty (Miss Kitty to some) gets along with her kitty friends of all ages but particularly enjoys the company of her people. She is at the perfect age where she no longer wants to participate in kitten shenanigans, but is more active than those senior cats who like to loaf around all day.
