Facts about Fauvi

  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7412539-A051706
  • Hair: Unknown

Fauvi's name should really be Routisserie! He loves attention soooo much that he rolls and rolls and rolls just so you touch every square inch of his body, especially his belly, believe it or not. Fauvi loves to sit on laps, lay in your arms, and he's also a champion headbutt-er, so be prepared for a gentle shove when he's ready for lovin'. He's a very gentle soul and a great companion that gets along well with other kitties and their humans. His purrbox is non-stop, so he'll gently lull you to sleep after a hard day at work. Adopting a young adult is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because they readily adapt to their new home, their personalities are already developed, and they'll provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Fauvi's ideal humans are those who crave the fun, energy, joy, and inquisitiveness of a young adult, and will happily include him in their daily activities. He'll do best in a quiet home (no small children) with another pet (hopefully his brother Jett because they're very good buddies, or a fostermate) and older children to keep him company. With a loving family, he'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in July 2013, Fauvi is a taupe/tawny brown tabby DSH male (fauve is French for taupe, by the way), is neutered, fully vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies), tested negative for FeLV, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped for identification. He uses the litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only. Please contact Fauvi's foster mom at or call   (408) 427-2949 (voicemail) for more information about adoption; messages returned within 24 hours.

About Friends of San Martin Animal Shelter

About Our Rescue Group...

FOSMAS is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit that provides rescue and foster care for Santa Clara County Animal Shelter cats and dogs.

Our primary goal is to lower the euthanasia rate at the shelter, reduce the overpopulation of homeless cats, and provide public outreach services to help the animals and staff at the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter in San Martin, CA. We can accomplish this goal by increasing adoptions and expanding our volunteer program. We provide homes, medical and comfort care to all animals in foster care until adopted.

FOSMAS provide specialty services for care of pre-wean kittens, we train fosters in animal care and provide foster homes for County cats & dogs. FOSMAS provides all necessary food, supplies, and medical treatments for the pets it retrieves from the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter, places them in adoption centers and holds pet fairs to find forever homes for the pets in our foster system.

We partner with local pet stores, such as Petco and PetSmart and local area businesses to run pet adoption fairs and events to showcase our pets available for adoption and educate the public about our rescue group and shelter. We also maintain our website and Pet Site listings to electronically showcase adoptable pets

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host a multitude of pet fairs monthly. Please visit our Facebook page for updated times and locations for our pet fairs.

FOSMAS volunteers also foster animals in private homes. Please contact or 669.228.4440 (voicemail) for more information about home visits or to make an appointment to see a particular kitty.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, interview, and interaction with the kitty. If everything goes well, we ask for an adoption fee. What the fee goes toward is de-worming, de-fleaing, age-appropriate vaccinations, tested negative for feline leukemia (and FIV if over 6 months old), spay or neuter, and micro-chipping. We require all members of the household to be present for the interaction so we can see how the kitty responds with each person and vice-versa, that there are no allergic reactions, and that all family members are on-board with the adoption and kitty selected. We do this to minimize the risk of the kitty being returned and to make sure there are no allergy issues.

Kittens.................................$125 (under 18 months)
Cats.................................$75 (18 months and older)
