Cats that need a home - please help!

My mother is slated to come live with us, for financial reasons mostly. She's been going downhill money-wise since Dad died, and it hasn't gotten better. This will help her save some money and help us out as well; I make about half of what I used to pre-college degree. Go figure.

Anyway, she has three domestic cats that need homes. We have enough kitties already, including B.J. who is not well. We also have my mother's dog, Sophie, full-time already. More animals are out of the question.

Mickey and Minnie - black cats, clawed but fixed. Mickey is a real sweetheart, very friendly once he warms up to you. He's long but very thin, and he uses the scratching post, generally. He can be talkative, but not overbearing. Minnie is a bit more standoffish; she prefers to be alone but LOVES to play. She's a bit overweight, I think. Minnie prefers to claw wood, so a wooden scratching post would be a necessity. They are indoor-only kitties and four years old. Mickey and Minnie are brother and sister and should stay together.

Sasha is a gray and white female, spayed, and friendly. He can be moody when he doesn't get his way, but he's not destructive. Overall a nice cat, no major drama. She fit in nicely with Mickey and Minnie. Sasha has been indoors for more than two years, but was raised as an indoor/outdoor cat, so transitioning wouldn't be out of the question. She's around four years old but could be older; the previous adopter wasn't sure.

The biggest downer with these cats is that they never were disciplined in terms of using a scratching post. My mother signed a pledge when she got Mickey and Minnie that she would not have them declawed, but she never kept their claws trimmed or kept them from scratching things they weren't supposed to. Personally, we are against declawing in general, but if it means the well-being (loving home, food, etc.) of the pet is maintained, I feel it's justified.

As an FYI, they are all in good health, but they are all behind on shots. They are litter trained, no problems there. I can get pictures or arrange a visit!
