Story: Jade is a beautiful calico found in Patagonia and was very shy and scared of her new indoor surroundings. In her foster home, she is blossoming. She loves being petted and is feeling comfortable sitting on her foster mom’s lap.

Importantly, Jade needs a person who is not gone all day and another cat to bond with. Her household cannot have any dogs. Adoption qualifications required.

Gabriel has lived in three homes, but through no fault of his own he has had to return to the shelter when death, divorce and allergies left him homeless time and again.
