Our kittens and cats are not adopted on a first come, first serve basis. Completing a screening form does not guarantee an adoption. We make an effort to match the perfect person or family with each cat/kitten. If there are two names together, those are bonded cats and we will not separate them.
All of our kittens  MUST have a kitten, cat and/or dog companion, unless otherwise noted.   In some cases, our adults may need to have a companion but read the description as it will be listed there. Please read down to the bottom of this kitty's page to find out more details about its personality.

Buddy  is FIV+, which just means if his white blood cells decrease, his ability to fight infection decreases. The virus is slow acting and most cats live a normal, healthy life span. (The virus cannot be passed to humans or other species.) Buddy is not aggressive and can live with FIV negative.
Meet Buddy! This sweet boy is a major lap cat with a very loud purr motor! ) His foster mom barely gets settled on the couch and he's in her lap! He plays with the other cats or happily entertains himself (and people watching) with bell balls, catnip mice or numerous other little stuffed toys!
He's been through a lot of health challenges but has been so awesome and sweet through it all. He's now healthy and ready for his loving home!
He was found summer of 2020 as a very sad looking tomcat. He had scabies, ear infections, bad teeth, was under weight, and had an eye injury. He was neutered through a TNR program (hence the ear tip) and found FIV positive. Then while recovering it was realized how sweet he was. So he was put in foster care with Candy's Cats.
As the months went by he healed fairly well but his eye would not. So we had to remove it. He doesn't mind at all. He's so happy and not in pain any more. He plays like a 1 year old cat (even though he's about 8 yrs old)
This boy has so much love and laughs to offer! As Luck would have it, he's available now to be spoiled by you!
