FAQs

Q. What are your adoption policies and procedures?
A: Please review our complete adoption process here.

Q. How do I find the right cat?
A: We suggest you browse through our Available Cats to help you narrow down your search. Then get in touch with us by submitting an adoption application, so we can follow up with you directly. You can also visit us in-person at our public adoption events.

Q: What medical care do you provide to your rescue cats?
A: Spay or neuter, microchip, combo test for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV)/Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), treatment for fleas and worms, and FVRCP vaccine(s). Please note that many kittens are too little to be spayed or neutered prior to adoption – in these cases, we arrange for the procedure after adoption.

Q: At what point am I responsible for the cat’s medical care?
A: At the time of adoption – as defined by the submission of the Adoption Agreement – the cat’s new guardian becomes responsible for medical care. The exception to this is spay/neuter, which we provide for all of our cats even after adoption (in the case of kittens adopted prior to 16 weeks of age).

Q: At what age is a kitten available for adoption?
A: 8 weeks, as long as he/she has an adequate weight.

Q: I found a cat outside and cannot keep him/her. What do I do?
A: Please review our resources on Lost & Found Cats to get you started. Many cats do very well with just basic care in a safe, quiet spot (for example, a bathroom, garage, or large carrier) until they can get into a safe foster or forever home. Cats need access to fresh water, a litter box, and regular feedings at all times.

Q: Help! I found a kitten without a mother. What do I do?
A: Check out this excellent resource guide through NKLA. If you have questions, feel free to contact us.

Q: I’ve heard that Los Angeles shelters kill many of the kittens and cats coming in. Is this true?
A: Sadly, yes. We are part of the No-Kill Los Angeles movement and work hard to reduce the number of kittens and cats killed in the shelters every year.

Q: Where do your cats come from?
A: Many of our cats are pulled from high-kill Los Angeles shelters, often just hours prior to being killed. We also rescue abandoned, needy cats from the street who would otherwise enter the shelter system. Sometimes cats also come to the group after being abandoned by families who can no longer care for the cat.

Q: I’m looking for a specific breed of cat/kitten (Siamese, Russian Blue, Ragdoll, etc.). Do you have one?
A: We rescue cats and kittens of all breeds and ages. Please check out our Available Cats to find the right kitty for you.
