Bee

IAR ID#: C-20-482

Birth Date: May 30, 2020

Gender: Female

Physical Description: Bee is a classic tuxedo with long, luxurious white whiskers!

Personality: Bee is a delightful little cat. She is very cautious at first, so she'll need an adopter who gives her the space and time to feel comfortable in a new place with new people. But once she opens up to you, she wants to play and explore! She would do best in a relatively quiet home, but she gets lonely if she doesn't have a playmate, so her ideal situation would be to have a kitty playmate (between 6 months and 3 years) or to live with people who are home a lot and can play with her frequently. She absolutely loves hiding under brown paper or tissue paper to chase the ribbon and the feather toys! She even plays fetch if she's in the right mood. When she's in a snuggling mood, she purrs all the time and wants pets -- she especially likes scritches at the base of her tail! She's experimenting with being a lap cat, and I'm able to pick her up for very brief moments. She likes to be around you, even if she's just napping or making up her own games.

Likes cats: Yes

Likes dogs: Yes

Likes kids younger than 6: Unknown

History: Bee was rescued off the streets of Chapel Hill in fall of 2020. She likes both cats and dogs, since she stayed in a household with some other cats and a dog upon her intake to the IAR program before arriving at her current foster home. Since she was rescued as a slightly older kitten, she's very cautious around new people, but if you're patient, she'll reward you with her trust and affection!

Birth Date: June 30, 2020

Gender: Female

Physical Description: Sadie is a beautiful short haired gray/black tabby. Her fur is very plush.

Personality: Sadie is a sweet and playful girl with a loud purr like a motor. She carries toy balls and feather wands all over the house, including up the stairs and onto my bed. She loves napping in the sun in the window next to my desk, getting chin rubs and back scratches, and chasing her sister Sam and foster sister Sweet Tea all over the house. She is still learning to be comfortable with people—she loves getting loved on, sleeping on/against my leg on the sofa, and is starting to cuddle in my lap, but still startles with loud noises and does not like being picked up or held. With time, she will undoubtedly get more and more comfortable- she has already come so far and is a very sweet girl. She must be adopted with her sister Sam or foster sister Sweet Tea.

Sam is just learning to be comfortable with people indoors, and she still startles with loud noises, does not like being picked up, and sometimes still hisses when caught off guard for dramatic effect. She loves sleeping next to me on the sofa, and is starting to snuggle in my lap for naps, so I am confident she will get more and more comfortable with time. She loves pets and chin scratches and purrs so loudly, licks my fingers like grooming them. Must be adopted with Sweet Tea.

Miesha

IAR ID#: C-19-418

Birth Date: July 28, 2018

Gender: Female

Physical Description: At 12+ pounds, Miesha is a big and pretty girl!. Her medium-length gray (blue) fur is beautiful, thick, and plush. She has the tiniest locket of white on her chest. With those green, almond-shaped eyes, she is stunning. Her ear-tip doesn't detract from her looks.

Personality: When her foster mom first met her, Miesha was in mom mode and ran the other outdoor cats away. She needed lots of calories and was focused on getting all of the food! After filling up her belly, Miesha would then interact with her caregiver, letting her give rubs and picking her up. Even though the kittens are older and weaned, Miesha is still a good mom to them. She is attentive and watches over them as they play and explore. She still grooms them sometimes and enjoys their company. Although she is living with other adult cats, she prefers being with her kittens or being alone. She seems to like her own space. Miesha is a friendly kitty. Although she enjoys attention from her foster mom when she's around, she is not too needy cat. When you give Miesha scratches on her head and shoulders, she is content to stay put, lying on her side. She just purrs and soaks up the love. However, she can get overstimulated when petted on her sides and belly. Miesha will give signs to let you know when it's time to stop. Update: Miesha had some irritated spots on her skin. When her foster mom was rubbing too close to those areas, Miesha didn't like it. Since then, the areas have been shaved and medicated, and her fur is growing back. Her ideal adopter will be an experienced guardian who understands her signals or who won't mind when she grabs your hand for some love bites and rabbit kicks. Because of this and her size, Miesha would be best suited for a family without small children. Update: Miesha does like other cats! Her foster mom has spent more time with Miesha and has seen her interact with the other kitties. Miesha has adjusted well living with them.

Likes cats: Yes

Likes dogs: Unknown

Likes kids younger than 6: Unknown

History: Miesha showed up in the summer to eat at her future foster mom's outdoor cat colony. Seizing the opportunity to contain this beauty, her soon-to-be foster mom quickly got her into the clinic so that she could be spayed and vaccinated. At the clinic, the vet discovered Miesha was lactating, and she was released so that she could return to care for her kittens. Miesha continued to come back to eat, and she proved to be a friendly cat after all. Finally, a couple of months later, Miesha brought her 2 kittens with her. Foster mom had been expecting the kittens and was eventually able to catch them and bring the little family inside.

Personality: Parsnip is a burst of energy and cuteness overload in your day. She’ll keep you entertained by chasing down every treat and toy you toss her way. Watch as she thoroughly entertains herself by curling around furniture legs and chasing her tail endlessly (she’ll get it one day, she’s sure of that!). This beautiful girl can be shy at first, but once she’s ready she is a whirlwind of fun that will melt next to you and purr up a storm when the head scratches begin. Her favorite activities include chasing the wand toys, always keeping one ear open to listen for the treat container, and subduing her fuzzy toys then trilling with satisfaction as she proudly walks across the house with them. Parsnip and her brother Carrot are bonded, and are hoping to find a forever home together.

Carrot

IAR ID#: C-20-596

Birth Date: May 1, 2020

Gender: Male

Physical Description: Carrot is an all-black floofy goofball of love.

Personality: Carrot is a sweet bundle of happy purrs and cheerful trills, ready to fill his forever home with play and adventure. While he is shy at first, once he warms up this adorable boy will purr up a storm as he flops over to get belly rubs then curls up for a nap nearby. He’ll spend hours entertaining himself (at his sister Parsnip’s expense, or the other way around), interspersed with spells of bird-watching through the window and bouts of staring adoringly at his humans until he gets treats out of them. In due time, he’ll be ready to wrap you in love and devotion. His favorite activities are chasing after and wrestling his sister Parsnip (and her tail), watching his humans as they cook, melting into a puddle of purrs when getting brushed, and finding new ways to get as many treats out of you as he can. His cuteness hasn’t failed him yet in that regard. Carrot and his sister Parsnip are bonded, and are hoping to find a forever home together.

Pepper

IAR ID#: C-20-445

Birth Date: February 14, 2020

Gender: Female

Physical Description: Petite calico with green eyes

Personality: Pepper is still a kitten, and enjoying kitten life now that her maternal duties are behind her. She loves people, cheek and chin scratches, and naps in the sun. She is extremely playful (to the point where her older feline foster siblings need a break from her sometimes). She will need lots of playtime and toys, since she is still very much a kitten. She would do best in a home with a younger, active, confident cat that is looking for a devoted playmate. Her current foster home does not have dogs, but she might be open to that. We do not believe that she would be good in a home with small children, as she is still being socialized and learning how to play.

Likes cats: Yes

Likes dogs: Unknown

Likes kids younger than 6: Unknown

History: Pepper was dumped behind a restaurant with her 5 kittens when she was just a kitten herself! Luckily a good samaritan noticed the family and picked them up. Her kittens have been adopted, and now Pepper is looking for her own forever home where she can be loved and spoiled like the kitten she still is.
