Love-A-Stray looking for a special owner for a special-needs cat
Molly's not a cat for just anyone. She's had a hard life, and came to Love-A-Stray with such bad eye problems that one eye had to be removed and the other one needed surgery. Other than being functionally blind, Molly is healthy and a bit on the petite side. Molly needs an owner who can commit to her care and doesn't have any other cats. Molly's very sweet and loves people. If you're interested in Molly, or would like to see other cats and kittens available for adoption, contact Love-A-Stray at email@example.com. You can also donate money to help cover the costs of medical care for cats like Molly, spaying/neutering cats, food, litter and health care.

Black-and-white cat given up after one of the children in his home developed allergies
Poor Plato. Happy in the home he was adopted into last year, the young adult cat is back at the Love-A-Stray shelter because the boy in the family developed eczema, which was a result of being allergic to cats. So now Plato is seeking a home where he'll only bring love, not sneezes or itches. If you're interested in Plato, or would like to see other cats and kittens available for adoption, contact Love-A-Stray at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also donate money to help cover the costs of spaying/neutering cats, food, litter and health care.
