Facts about Martin

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 6635022-2731C MB
  • Hair: Short

This gorgeous big guy is even more handsome in person. Martin is a sweet fella and very much a curious and playful young cat with an easy-going nature. He is affectionate on his terms and when he knows you well, then be ready for some impressive head butts to your shins when he greets you first thing in the morning! He is not yet a lap cat, but rather more of cat that likes to lie against your leg while you sit on the couch or lie in bed. He has a brother named Murphy who is also a wonderful, handsome fella. Martin gets along with most cat personalities and can be found snuggling and sleeping side by side with his foster buddies. At times, he can be domineering, so best paired with a cat who is confident and not easily pushed around. He would likely do fine with a cat-friendly dog. Martin may do fine with children over age 6 and have had experience with adult cats. Martin was rescued as a kitten with his siblings in Oakland'™s Chinatown district. We estimate that Martin was born in April 2008. Bio# 2731C MB



About Island Cat Resources and Adoption (ICRA)

About Our Rescue Group...

ICRA is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the suffering of the abandoned cat population of Alameda and Oakland, and to educate people to their plight. We provide foster homes for our rescues until we can place them into loving homes through our adoption program. On a limited basis, we humanely trap feral cats in order to spay/neuter them before releasing them back to their colonies. Our goal is to expand our program for maintaining cat colonies in our communities. To make this expansion possible, we need more volunteers.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters pick out a cat or kitten and fill out an application.
There will be a short interview with one of our volunteers. Adoptions do not happen the same day. We will arrange a time to visit your home and the foster parents and a volunteer will meet there. Our adoption fee structure is:

  • Cats and kittens (six months to 8 years): $100
  • Cats (over 8 years): $75
  • Two cats: Full amount for the higher amount cat, half amount for the lower amount cat

    For example: a kitten and an adult would be: $100 + $50 = $150

Prior to Adoption all cats and kittens are:

  • Spayed or neutered
  • FeLV and FIV tested
  • FVRCP vaccinated
  • De-wormed, and
  • Treated for fleas with Advantage or Frontline
