Harper & Portia’s Happy Ending

Harper has been amazingly patient with my son since day 1.  He carries her everywhere, and she purrs and never uses her claws.  Portia is a little more reserved, but when I am on my own, she jumps up on my lap, and I’ve discovered she is very mischievous and curious.  They are the perfect […]

Large Cat Intake

We recently had a large intake of cats that are all in need of medical care. In addition to regular vetting, they will need treatment for URV, eye infections, severe ear mites, diarrhea, and ringworm. The cost to treat these ailments is not cheap, especially for 14 cats, so any monetary donations would be greatly […]

Tia (darker orange) and Tigga (lighter orange) are FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia) kittens that are up for adoption at Pisces. They are the nicest, most well tempered kitties ever. Seriously!
