Cat Adoption

 

Fabulous balls of fur!

Here are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Georgina

Meet sweet Georgina. Georgina was a brand new mama when she was rescued. She has raised all her beautiful kittens and is now ready to find a forever home of her own! Georgina currently fosters with us, and still acts very much like a kitten, energetic and playful! She gets along great with other cats, is a friendly greeter when you come home and is an awesome snooze companion…it’s starting to get cold, need some extra warmth?

Georgina’s estimated date of birth is 4/2/16. Her adoption fee of $120 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) and rabies vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea treatment, microchip and spay.

Penguin

A cute name for a cute kitten! And, of course it’s logical to name a black & white kitten Penguin! She doesn’t waddle, haven’t seen her swim, but she definitely knows how to snuggle and cuddle! On her first day with Adopt-A-Pet, she came from a shelter, went for a vet exam, then a cab ride to her foster mom’s house. As soon as they got inside, Penguin curled up and took a nap on her foster mom’s neck! What a sweetie! Penguin is very much a lap kitty that will climb into your lap whenever she gets a chance. Her favorite place to nap is on shoulders and necks! She already knows how to play fetch – she loves playing it with a pen. Her foster mom thinks that Penguin thinks she’s a puppy, because she likes to find pens and carry them around like a dog bone! She is also very much a shadow…she loves to follow her foster mom wherever she goes or where ever she thinks the action is. When they are not playing all Penguin wants to do it take naps on her.

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can play and snuggle while you’re not home. Check out Adopt-A-Pet’s Pick A Pair page to see if her new foster buddy, Winter is still available. Or, if you already have a friendly, playful cat at home, she’d love that too!

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, They will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and Adopt-A-Pet follows their recommendations for single placements.

Penguin’s estimated date of birth is 10/2/17. Her adoption fee of $140.00 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccinations, FIV (positive) & Feline Leukemia testing (negative), routine deworming, microchip and spay.

What does FIV+ mean for Penguin? Kittens can exhibit a false positive test result until they are closer to 6 months in age. The FIV test performed looks for antibodies which may be passed from the mother. The test does not confirm the presence of the FIV virus. Once the FIV virus is confirmed, it can only be passed from feline to feline. Humans and other animals are not at risk of infection. The virus is passed by saliva in the form of a deep bite wound, not by casual contact. This means that sharing food and water bowls as well as normal grooming is not a concern. The cat may have a more compromised immune system than a FIV negative cat, but can – and do – still live a long, healthy, normal life. (Of course, there is no guarantee that an FIV cat will not eventually develop clinical disease; but there’s no guarantee that any cat won’t get sick from something sooner or later!) Meanwhile, FIV positive cats still have a lot to give us. FIV is no longer the sentence or stigma that prevents a delightful feline from becoming part of your family. Feel free to discuss Feline FIV with your veterinarian prior to meeting sweet Penguin! Read more about FIV here:

Flex

Flex (aka Flexie) is an affectionate, energetic orange tabby boy. He loves to climb up on his foster mom and purr and give nose kisses and face snuggles. But, the second he spots his furry foster brother, he changes into wrestle-mania mode and springs to go have an impromptu wrestling match with him. Once he’s done with that, he likes to play with his stuffed pumpkin toy and watch birds out the window. He is also very much a lap kitty. He knows how to nonchalantly climb on a warm lap and catch a nap, or find is way to lay next to you (and hog your pillow!).

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can play and snuggle while you’re not home. Flex would love to be adopted with his foster brother, Tavi. Check out our Pick-A-Pair page to see if he’s still available.

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, Adopt-A-Pet will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and they follow their recommendations for single placements. Flex’s previous foster mom thinks Flex would prefer having a feline buddy for companionship, but thinks he’d also be okay as a solo cat.

Flex’s estimated date of birth is 5/6/17. His adoption fee of $140.00 includes his vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) and rabies vaccinations, FIV (+) & Feline Leukemia (-) testing, routine deworming, microchip and neuter.

What does FIV+ mean for Flex? FIV can only be passed from feline to feline. Humans and other animals are not at risk of infection.

She’s a sweet kitty who’s also happy to chill with you and watch TV.
