About Kowhai

Kowhai is a gorgeous and young cat, about a year and half old. She is a sassy girl for sure, entertaining, and a bit of a diva. She is STUNNING too, just an all-around beautiful cat. She was shy when she first moved in and a bit grumpy. But once she settled in she calmed down. She is one of those cats that likes things on her own terms. She will sit on the chair with you or sleep on the bed with you, but she will tell you exactly when she wants to be pet. She will head butt and rub you and say "ok, its pet me time!" Other times she will tell you "it's not pet me time right now." She really does talk too. It's not a simple 'meow.' She is trying to have a real conversation. She's SO smart. If she is the type of cat you are looking for, you will absolutely love her, a confident girl with an independent streak. But she definitely has her funny and goofy moments. She can be a solo cat, with another cat as she does like other cats. However with her strong personality, some cats might be intimidated by her. Once you meet her, you will understand why she needs a confident adopter.  She is such a big personality that we suggest an adopter get to know her over time in a foster to adopt situation, rather than a single meet and greet, so she can have time to get comfortable with you.

Coco is a two year old active and affectionate brindle pit mix who thinks she is a lapcat. Due to her past, she is still working through some things and is looking for an adoptive or long term foster home with patient and experienced people willing to continue her training. This sweet girl with a giant smile will reward you with love and more kisses than you could ever want. Coco was initially adopted unspayed from the city shelter by a family with semi-permanent housing and therefore Coco moved around a lot. She had at least one litter of puppies and was pregnant again when we rescued her. When she first joined us, Coco had no idea how to walk outside and was terrified of any other dog we saw on the street. Although she can still be dog-reactive, she has made incredible progress. Occasionally we still occasionally encounter dogs who Coco can't stand, but generally she's able to move on quickly with the right guidance. Coco is OBSESSED with playing fetch -- so much so, that she has been known to toss the ball for herself. She loves to cuddle and give hugs and is extremely obedient when inside. If given the chance, she will curl up with you at night, snoring gently. Coco still needs some training to have the confidence and ability for casual strolls on the sidewalk without occasionally losing her mind and barking her head off at nearby dogs, but she is so eager to please and really does try her best almost all of the time. We would love to find a foster to adopt home for Coco to continue honing her skills as she is still a work in progress -- but aren't we all? If you are interested in fostering Coco with the intention to adopt, please fill out an application at -- don't miss your chance to meet this special girl. show less
