Your New Family Member

Adopting a cat or kitten is a life-long commitment of love, care and medical treatment for the life of the cat, which can be up to 20 years.

Adopting a pet is a serious commitment, but one that is very rewarding.

Please take this responsibility seriously. We are always her to support you along the way.

People who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks.

The average lifespan for an indoor cat is 15 years, while the average lifespan for an outdoor cat is only 3 - 5 years.

Never feed your cat dog food. Cats need five times more protein than dogs do.

Rescue groups and shelters alike have some of the most beautiful, hearty, and exceptionally good natured cats and kittens!

Sadly they are getting passed by for more colorful kitties. Domestic shorthair black cats are being euthanized in shelters more then any other cat and rescue groups find them the most difficult to place into safe and loving homes.

This is sad and heartbreaking because BLACK CATS are extremely intelligent, affectionate and lack many of the health problems associated with other breeds.

Please consider adopting one of these wonderful bundles of personalities and fun? Give them a chance to touch your heart and bring some love into your life! Call people who have black cats and hear their testimonies! We can assure you - you will have a "Change of Heart".

Adoption Process

  • To ensure that we place our cats and kittens in loving, responsible and committed homes, there is a pre-screening process conducted before anyone can adopt a pet. Our first responsibility is to the cat or kitten and to ensuring a permanent, lifelong match. For this reason, we reserve the right to decline any adoption.
  • You must provide the name and phone number of the Veterinarian of your current and/or past pets.
  • All applications are processed on an individual basis.
  • If your application is approved, you will be contacted within 5 days and our volunteers will set up a mutually convenient adoption date and time and provide you with the medical history of your new pet.
  • If you do not hear back within 5 days, it means your application is not approved, in which case we suggest going to the Orange County Animal Shelter at 561 The City Drive South in Orange or the HB Humane Society at 21632 Newland St in Huntington Beach. You will be able to adopt from them and save a cat from being euthanized.
  • Our adoption fee is $135 for kittens and $99 for cats over 1 year. It is tax-deductible and and includes the Spay/Neuter, MicroChip, Felv-Fiv testing, Vaccines to date of adoption, De-worming, Flea Treatment, Collar & ID Tag.

BRINGING KITTY HOME

Cats often find a sudden change in their surroundings frightening. Keep in mind that regardless of how comfortable and cat-friendly you make your home, it will take several days, weeks or even months for your adopted cat to acclimate to his new home. Introducing the kitty to the Existing Resident Cat (ERC) or to other family members is all strange and new, and may take some time.

Benefits of using this method to acclimate your new cat
By following the steps below, the new cat becomes familiar with new sounds, smells and people in a confined area, which serves as a comfort zone. This area will continue to be comforting to the cat later in life if she becomes frightened. From here, you can observe what your new kitty likes in regards to toys, petting and grooming. Plus it gives you a chance to see how much she is eating, whether the cat is using the litter pan for the first week and to observe her general behavior. The new kitty can bond with you without interference from the ERC or other people. Take your time and allow the cat to progress at her own pace. It is well worth the time spent! And remember, this could take a few days, weeks or even months. Just don't get discouraged.
