It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update about my assorted furballs. The tiny-kitten days are over, but I still have a variety of adolescents and young adults. All would make great pets and all are looking for permanent homes in the Los Angeles area. Click to enlarge all the images.
All the kittens were adopted long ago, but I still have my mommy cat, Sweet Pea. She is only 1 1/2 years old. She’s incredibly outgoing–when we have a visitor, she’s always at the door to say hi. Small children and babies have met her and she is very patient and gentle with them. She also gets along great with other cats. Duke thinks she’s his mommy! The only thing she doesn’t like is dogs. She’s our most playful kitty at the moment, but she also loves cuddling. She would be a great cat for a family with children as long as they don’t have a dog.
Our newest arrival is this awesome American bobtail about 2 years old. She is a complete ham who loves being the center of attention. When she wants a tummy rub, she’ll make sure she gets one! She loves chasing the laser pointer. It’s hilarious to watch because her feet are so fuzzy that she is always skidding on our wood floors. Her naturally bobbed tail is adorable, popping up over her back when she’s happy and waggling when she’s annoyed. She is friendly with people, including children, but doesn’t get along with other cats. She would be an ideal only cat.
Duke was part of a family of feral kittens who were trapped at a young age, but never properly socialized. They spent their first five months shut up in an atrium, exposed to nobody except the man who fed them. As a result, at 8 months old, he’s very frightened of strangers. However, once he warms up to you, he’s a calm, well-behaved kitty with no bad habits. He loves snuggling on the bed with us or with his adopted mommy, Sweet Pea. He would be a great cat for someone looking for a quiet pet who won’t be any trouble, but he would also get along in a household with other pets. His siblings, Marquis and Princess, are with other fosters and are also looking for permanent homes.
Our youngest kitty is 6-month-old Tawny. She is a formal feral who got ear tipped before she was won over by the easy indoor life. She is still shy and easily startled, especially around people she doesn’t know, but when she feels safe, she will cuddle and demand attention. I’m constantly feeling her little wet nose poking into my hand. Doad is very attached to her. She would do best in a quiet home.
Duke and Tawny are having trouble finding homes because they are shy and so people who see them at adoption events don’t get to experience their real personalities. Since we’re a no-kill rescue, they will stay with me for as long as it takes to find them all permanent homes, but the time they spend here is time I can’t spend helping any of the other thousands of homeless cats in Los Angeles.
If you are interested in adopting any of these cats, or if you know someone who is, please leave a comment. Please share this post to help them find permanent homes.
