OSCAR
OLLIE & MAX
LILY
amos
sweet pea
BETSy

Quirk: Shyness

"Oscar is a feral rescue and he hides from strangers. He is a sweet cat, but needs extra time to get used to visitors."

Quirk: The Bonded Pair

"Ollie and Max are a bonded pair. Should something happen to me, they should not be separated - it would be devastating to them."

Quirk: A Picky Drinker

"Lily doesn't like drinking out of a water dish. Instead, I keep a glass on my nightstand just for her. I know for sure now that she's getting fresh water everyday."

Quirk: Scratching Preference

"Amos loves to scratch and use his claws to sink into a nice scratching post. Over time, we discovered that he really only likes horizontal, cardboard scratching posts....so we keep several around the house for him. Without it, he'll just use the carpet :("

Quirk: Grooming

"Sweet Pea has a beautiful coat - but sometimes it gets matted and knotted. She hates being brushed, so I take her to the groomer about every three months. She gets a "puss in boots" haircut, leaving her head, feet and tail fluffy and manageable."

Quirk: Food Temperature

"Betsy is an awesome cat - but definitely has her quirks. Betsy will only eat wet food if it is made by a certain brand and is the chicken paté flavor...and get this - it has to be COLD or else she won't eat it!"

They will also have access to any pet professionals your cat sees including your veterinarian, groomer, and pet sitter.

This could be a friend, neighbor, family member, co-worker – anyone that you know and trust.You will provide us with your designated caregiver’s email address and we will send them an invitation to set up a “read-only” account. They will be able to see your cat’s preferences but will not be able to make changes to your account. Only you, the cat’s owner, can make changes to your cat’s account.
