Welcome to this week's cats! All of these cats are from around the Kansas City area and are ready to go home with you. Please contact their respective shelters (links below) if any of these guys pull at your heartstrings. Or maybe you have a friend who would like a cat? Give them a nudge.
Let's lead off with a kitten from Fairway's Meowy Matchmakers, Luna Lovegood:
Luna, a darling little kitten with beautiful coloring, just arrived from the Hogwarts Express and is ready to bring a little magic to your home. She's loves playing with toys and cuddling. Luna is a real sweetheart and is as cute as can be.
You can get contact Meowy Matchmakers about Luna and see a few more pictures of her here.
Next, from Cats Pawjamas, we have a majestic Maine Coon named Nova:
Nova might be a little slow to warm up to you but once he does, you've got yourself a good pal. He likes to rub on you and will stand up like a meerkat (which must be a sight to see). He's a friendly, low maintenance cat who is content to spend all day laying on the couch or simply looking out the window. But then again, who wouldn't be?
Fun fact: Maine Coons are the oldest native cat breed in the United States, dating back to the 1800's, thought to be brought over by seaman to New England. They are the only long-haired breed native to the US and are the official state cat of Maine (unfortunately Kansas and Missouri don't have official state cats).
One more thing, it is hard to say if this is true of all Maine Coons, but Nova also enjoys playing duets on the piano.
You can learn more about Nova, here.
Next from Great Plains SPCA, we have Pearl.
Pearl is a charming senior cat who is looking for a place to call home. Senior cats are a great option for people who just want a chill cat to hang out with. They still enjoy lots of attention and playing, but if a never ending amount of rambunctiousness sounds exhausting, maybe a senior cat is your cup of tea. Pearl can be a great pal--all she asks is for some food, shelter, and a little bit of love.
You can learn more about Pearl here.
Next, from the Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter we have the lovely Smoky:
Smoky was living in the wild in Misty Woods (just outside of Parkville) and although it is a pretty area, Smoky would certainly be happier in a home. Maybe yours? Smoky is still a youngster at around a year and a half old and is shy around people. It might take some time before she bonds with you and will require some patience, but when she does, you'll have an appreciative peach for life.
You can fill out an application to meet Smoky here.
Finally from The Animal Rescue Alliance we have Nalu.
Nalu must be a genius--she's has Einstein's same hairdo. When she's not busy formulating theorems, she'll be wanting you to give her love and belly rubs. She's looking for a best friend that she can hang out with. If you'd like a constant companion, who will stay by your side (or perhaps on your lap), Nalu is your girl.
Learn more about Nalu here.
That's it for this week! Again, if you fancy any of these kitties, they can be romping around your home before you know it--just reach out to their respective shelters.
