Important Note

Boo is best friends with Sassafras. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
*Adoption fee reduced for cats over one year of age!

Sassafras and her remaining son, Boo are the last of a group of kitties rescued from a garage on the busy Boulevard two years ago. Boo is shy but sweet and likes to hang out where people are in the living room and especially likes sitting on the back of the couch looking down on people when he naps on it. He also likes to greet you at the door by jumping on the back of the couch with his mom and making sort of a bookend of sorts with her so that you can love them both. He is not a lap cat but has started coming into the bedroom and onto the bed in the last couple months. Boo also likes to sit and stare with his mouth open and his tongue hanging out. His mom is pretty much Boo's twin who started out feral but has actually become even more socialized than Boo now and pretty much demands attention/head scratches or you get the paw. She has been diagnosed with kitty heartworms but they don't seem to bother her other than some rare coughing. They both will talk to you once they get comfortable and demand petting. They get along with other cats and surprisingly, dogs as well. They like to look out the window. They will eat most any dry food and sometimes wet food - they are on a combination of Blue Buffalo and Costco/Kirkland brand Maintenance Cat dry food with various wet foods. They are both sweet, loving cats but easily startled and will need a quiet home with love and patience because it may take a while for them to warm up, as it did when they first came to their foster home. Boo & Sassafras are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together (just look at them snuggling together in the pictures!)

Please apply online and ask my foster mom Vittoria all about me.

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.

After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
