Iris is a female, tabby kitten that was born in May. The Humane Society reports that while Iris has an independent personality, she would still love to have a feline sibling. She is friendly, lovable and purrs often.

Mystique is a female cat that is less than a year old. She is spayed and is current on vaccinations. She loves to play and have her face petted, the Humane Society said. “While a little shy at first and it takes her some time to feel comfortable in her new surroundings, her adoration will be worth it,” the Humane Society reported.
