Iris, Maine Coon Mix
Iris is a female Maine Coon mix currently living at The Dancing Cat.
Iris’ ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Iris is neutered. Iris is a pet with special needs. Please inquire about their specific care requirements.
Iris’s current caretakers say:
Iris is a beautiful girl with an even more beautiful heart. Their long fur attracts attention and their green eyes are fascinating. Aside from being a lunatic, she is cute and interested in people. If you are looking for a gentle companion who will stay close to you after you have settled in, this is the cat for you. Iris struggles a little with change and takes a lot of time to get used to a new room. Iris would thrive in a quiet home and she might be happiest as your only pet. Iris does not use a litter box, this is behavior that, despite great efforts, has not been addressed. In the distant past she used a litter box but won’t use one anymore. She will need a home that can accommodate this behavior.

Taika, short hair mix
Taika is an adorable short hair mix for women that is groomed at The Dancing Cat.
Taika wants to be your only one: she will need a home that is free from other cats. She’s already neutered.
Here’s what Taika’s friends at The Dancing Cat think of her:
Don’t let age fool you, Taika is as bubbly as a cat half its age! Curious about her surroundings and brave in her determination, this tabby girl is confident. It takes her a day or two to find her way around a new home, but once she’s ready to cuddle. She enjoys making cookies by kneading blankets, and she curls up under your chin or on your shoulder, slapping your face with hers when she wants extra attention. Taika is a little talkative, purring loudly and snoring even louder. Blow up a magic wand toy and this hunter will show you how to catch a fuzzy mouse or two. If you want to be the safe and loving home that a spirited senior deserves, consider improving your own quality of life by letting taika in.

From Nara’s current caretaker:
The beautiful Nara is practically perfect in every way! When this spunky girl was rescued she had a bad cold but now she has recovered and is ready to go. Even when she felt sick, Nara was sweet and tolerant. This well-rounded kitten gets along well with everyone – including other cats, dogs and children. It thrived in a high-energy foster home, and there just isn’t much this cat can’t handle. She loves to play and cuddle in equal parts and is ready for her forever home today.

Zeus, Maine Coon and native longhair mix
Zeus is a male Maine Coon and native longhair mix groomed at The Dancing Cat.
Zeus loves other cats. He’s already neutered.
Notes from Zeus’ caretakers:
Zeus aspires to be as bold and powerful as his name, but for now he is content to just be worshiped. Zeus takes some time to adjust to new environments, but once acclimatized he is an affectionate and curious guy. He loves looking out of the window and wants a bright and sunny home with many views. Lovingly and gently, Zeus would like to experience a lot of love and give even more.
