The cats love their hammocks and beds, which provide comfort while they are waiting for their forever homes. The cat scratchers for their cages provide them a place to do what comes naturally! And toys are always fun. Having happy, relaxed cats helps them find forever homes! Cats pictured include Willow (first photo). From her Petfinder profile: “This teenage kitten is super sweet and fun-loving. She’s been fostered with cats and dogs.” Meet Willow here.
