Nora (top left) and her handsome, roly-poly brother Ren (top right) are two 5-year-old kitties that are littermates looking for love! Both of these big tabby kitties are very gentle and playful, and will seek out the attention of humans whenever they can! Ren is a bit of a chunker, and a big boy that will quickly catch your eye with his beautiful silver coat and impressive size. He’s a friendly giant that will often saunter over to say hello, and a very sweet boy that isn’t bothered by much. He’s a dog-like cat that will even play fetch when he’s feeling frisky! His sister Ren is the more active and independent of the two, and likes her naptime as well as her playtime. She might take a little longer to warm up to a new person, but is oh-so cuddly and will bond fiercely when she’s had time to get to know you. Both Nora & Ren are large-bodied cats that always prefer to be nearby but not necessarily in the lap. These sweet, plushy kitties were rescued as kittens together in Tennessee, but were brought to the Northwest after moving from a big house to a tiny apartment, where their owner’s allergies became too much to handle. They are used to being entirely indoors, and would thrive in a larger space to roam around in, though they are not super high energy. Once they are settled in, they are undeterred by most things, including children and dogs, and would make wonderful family pets. They enjoy cuddling together and grooming each other, so would love to find a home where they could stay together. After having already gone through quite a bit of transition in their short lives, they’d love to find a stable home to settle into long term.

Nora & Ren are currently residing with Doug in the Seattle area. If you are interested in learning more about these delightful kitties, please reach out to him at

I am the beautiful, darling little Gertrude, an 10-year-old lady looking for love! My friends call me Queenie Gertie, since I’m such a regal beast. Though I am just entering my golden years, I still have a lot of playfulness in me, and love chasing the dangling feather. I’m also a bit of a catnip junky, I must admit. Other favorite pass-times include sitting next to my foster mom on the couch for cuddles and being gently brushed, which not only is a nice bonding experience, but also helps keep my luxurious coat nice and maintained. I’m very much a people kitty and enjoy being wherever you are, either playing or lounging surrounded by a melody of toys. I’m not a super needy kitty, and would do fine with a single person who had to work out of the house, though I’d always be nearby when they were home! I will also gladly climb into your lap when I’m in the mood for a lovely little lap cuddle. I’m a very gentle kitty that is also used to a quiet and mellow home, and I’m not a huge fan of being picked up so my ideal place would probably be little-kid-free. My preference would be to only the furry pet in the home, and while I do enjoy sniffing the air when the windows are open and catching the interesting outside smells, I’m perfectly content with my cushy indoor digs. I’m a hearty kitty that doesn’t have any major medical issues, however like most senior cats I do have kidney disease and eat a special food to help maintain my health. I will need regular check-ups to monitor my kidneys and ensure I can live the longest, happiest life possible. Do you think I’m just the kitty you were looking for? I would be delighted to meet you! I hope you’ll fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $80.

Eve is a loving 10 year-old blind tuxedo cat. She is a very sweet older girl who moves very slowly and takes time to learn her surroundings but, once she has learned her space, can easily find her food, litter box, etc. Since she is blind she can be easily scared by loud noises, active kids, other pets, etc. She would probably do best in a quiet home with no other animals, or with animals that will leave her alone. She is cuddly and spends a lot of time sleeping, usually preferring to have one or two cozy spots that are hers. A smaller home may be a great fit for her, so she can easily learn the location of rooms, stairs, furniture, etc.  We have a busy house with 3 kids and a younger cat and dog, and we would love to find a better home for Eve that is quieter. Our two other pets like to come play with her, and she gets a little freaked out by them. She does best with very calm petting.
Eve has a couple of health issues, some of which are related to her anxiety/issues with sharing her home with other pets. She has begun to aggressively over-groom herself and pull out her hair. We think this is partly related to her unease around the other pets in her house. Our vet thinks this is broadly reflecting her anxiety as well as potentially some allergy issues. She was also recently diagnosed with diabetes, but is not currently prescribed insulin. We give her diabetic food and that seems to help. The only obvious evidence of her diabetes is that she drinks a lot and pees a lot, but she uses her litter box and it just requires frequent cleaning. However, due to the diabetes diagnosis, we cannot give her steroid shots that could help with her skin/hair-pulling. So she is now pulling out large amounts of hair. We think if she felt more comfortable she would not be pulling her hair out at all.
She is fixed, up to date on shots, and has had regular vet check-ups. She needs a larger litter box that is easy to find and access, as she is a little overweight and she cannot jump very high. She is indoors-only. 
We would love to find a good home for her to live out the rest of her quiet life. We can re-home her with a litter box, a cat bed she has liked, and a few other things. To learn more about Eve please call or text Anna: 206-418-9559.

Miku is a two year old Thai Blue Tip Siamese. He loves people, he loves going on hikes with his leash and he is formerly an inside cat, just beginning to venture outside on his own these days. He loves other cats and animals, but is not great with social cues (for example he will run up to a strange cat or dog to sniff their nose and try to play with them). He would do really well in a house with other FRIENDLY cats, dogs and kids. He is a ball of energy, he would play with you all day if he could. He’s not a kitten anymore but he still gets the zoomies, and when it’s time for his dinner he gets so excited he actually does back flips off the walls. He’s a wonderful kitty. 
He does have a peeing problem! It is tied up with his relationship with my cat (she is very combative and territorial). If you want to be his forever home you need to have an understanding of cat behavior! I’ve been able to manage his peeing by redirecting him when he gets agitated by my other cats behavior but it’s a constant struggle. I believe that if he is in a home where he is not in a constant territorial war he will not pee. That being said, I will take him back if it does not work out. PLEASE do not drop him at a shelter or just give him away to someone else.

Hello! I’m Koda! I’m a nine year old 17lb American Eskimo/Poodle mix. I am looking for my best friend. I’ll be honest, I may look like a dog but I’m convinced I’m a person just like you. If we hang out, you’ll find me laying at your feet, next to you on the couch, or cuddled up in bed with you. I LOVE people. I’ve been known to smile when I get really excited. Everyone thinks it’s adorable. Oh and I’m a pro when it comes to only using the restroom outside. I love playing fetch but also am completely cool just relaxing all day!

Because I’m so spectacular, my family is going to be quite picky about finding me the right family. I currently live with a crazy two year old and newborn but sometimes other fast moving kids make me a little nervous so I’m looking for an adult only family. My mom imagines me with a more mature person or couple where someone possibly works from home with a more quiet lifestyle. My current home’s backyard shares a fence with a bunch of dogs and it stresses me out a bit and I can be very vocal about that. Because of that, I’m looking for a home with a more private backyard or even property! I should also mention that I’m not the best when I’m on a walk and see another dog. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE walks but when I see another dog, I just go a little crazy. I don’t hate other dogs though. Like I mentioned earlier, I’m a person in a dog’s body. I do pretty well with most dogs after a few minutes. Some I even enjoy playing with but, to be honest, I imagine myself being the center of your world. If that works for you, I’d entertain the idea of us getting a “pet”. I look forward to meeting you if you think I’d be the right fit for you!

Here and gone in a flash! I am the fastest tiny terrier you have ever seen. And boy do I love to run around and get the zoomies! My name is Shyla and I am a 2 year old terrier weighing in about 10lbs. I have a lot of spunk and exuberance, and seem to always be ready and on the go. Though I am a little firecracker, I still am a bit sensitive and it takes me a little bit to warm up to new people. But once I do, it’s time to play! But of course with all that energy, sometimes I get a little too amped, so quiet break times with an interactive food toy or chewy will help me simmer down a bit, while also keeping my busy. I also really love playing with dog friends but can be a little pushy. So ideally I would have another dog friend in the home who will play with me, but also teach me some manners and when to take breaks. My fosters say that I try and play with the kitties too, but I sometimes think their swatting is funny. So if there is a kitty in the home, it would be best if they were dog savvy, confident and a bit younger who might want to engage in play with me. I can sometimes be a bit vocal, especially when I get amped or excited. Thus, I am looking for a house without shared walls with neighbors. I absolutely love the big spacious yard that my fosters have, and after 5 or 6 zoomies around the perimeter, it’s back to the house for a nap, snuggling by your side. I am looking for an active yet low foot traffic adult only home in the suburbs or somewhere a bit mellower than the busy inner city with a someone who has experience with the ways of the terrier. I am of course very smart and food motivated which makes training easy and fun for me! In fact, I enjoy my snuffle mat a lot, so I bet I would be a great candidate for some nose work which will help my busy mind. Spicy, silly, sensitive and sweet, I am ready to meet my forever friends today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, microchipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Bobby is a year and eleven month old seal point siamese cat. She has a gorgeous darker coat that shines in the light. She is looking for a home with no dogs, cats or young children. She needs someone who can give her lots of attention without other animals confusing her or over-stimulating her. Bobby is full of personality, she is a queen of her kingdom! She is always curious and interested in all new things, people and toys. She is also one of the most playful cats you will ever meet! She loves playing with her toys and also loves hunting for treats we have placed for her around the house. Because of her age though, she is still learning how to play properly, and if she feels you aren’t paying enough attention or playing right, she can turn her energy towards you. But she is learning to take breaks when this happens by my partner and I redirecting her and walking away. Bobby loves to let her personality shine through her songs and phrases too. She will always let you know when she wants to hang out, and she will let you know when she is done. Bobby tends to let you know how she is feeling through her body language immediately, and also with her mouth. She tends to let people know when she is overstimulated with bites on the arm or hand when she wants to be left alone, or if she didn’t like something. We have been working with her to understand she doesn’t need to bite and can let us know in other ways, and we have definitely seen her understanding better, though she still uses it quite often to communicate. If you are not okay being bitten or scratched while working with her to improve her manners, this isn’t the cat for you. She has never been an outdoor cat but in the right situation that could allow her to get some energy out and that would be greatly beneficial. Bobby is a super smart lady with a grand personality, and while she still needs some help learning and understanding some things, she is an incredibly affectionate and loving little lady.

Looking for a pup who is a big marshmallow? Well this Canelo is your fellow! At 6 months old, I am already weighing in at 47lbs and will likely continue to fill out a bit more as I reach the 1 yo mark. It’s likely I am a Husky maybe Malamute mix, but regardless I am a sweet and sensitive giant ball of fluff. I do have a ton of puppy energy and am very very bouncy, so I am looking for a home with kiddos over 12. Just like my friend Nube, I am also in a very critical learning and socialization period and BASIC TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. I am very happy and social guy who has so much fun playing with my doggy friends. With some finesse on my leash skills and other basics, I bet I would be a great hiking and adventure companion! Playful, happy go lucky, and kinda dopey, nothing really seems to bother me. I am just an excited pup ready to explore the world! Though I am not a huge fan of those kitties, so none in my home please. Because I am quite the large guy who needs some space and since I can sometimes be talkative, I am looking for a house set up without shared walls with neighbors. Energetic and oh so fluffy, I am eager to play with my new family today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee $400.
