Queen Teuta of Illyria is a retired three-legged pirate cat who's ready to make your lap her new throne. Her first four years of life will remain a mystery but at some point her ship ran aground on the fantastical isle of Hollywood where she survived by her wits alone. Finally a passing rescue ship took pity on her and she joined the crew of the HMS Kitten Rescue. However, Queen Teuta is not a fan of swabbing decks and furling sails and would like to regain her once royal status in a new Kingdom. She seeks a warm lap for her throne, delicious snacks to eat, and loving hands to scritch her royal ears. 

She is a true Queen and as such does not like to mix with the little cats of the world – though she might be convinced to share her kingdom with the right kind of subject, maybe even the canine kind. Queen Teuta has a royal temperament and although she will shower you with affection most of the time she prefers if attention were paid to the royal head and not the royal back or royal legs unless she's feeling particularly magnanimous.

About Kitten Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome! Kitten Rescue is a non-profit organization located in the Los Angeles area, devoted to rescuing needy kittens and cats from shelter euthanasia and abandonment. We provide our rescued cats with all necessary medical attention and ongoing treatment to establish their health, while caring for them in foster homes, where they're given abundant love and affection. The kitties like that part the best!

Kitten Rescue presents cats for adoption regularly at locations all over Los Angeles County, in addition to conducting private adoptions during the week, with the goal of finding loving, committed homes for every animal we take in. We also offer education and help to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our kitties live in foster homes and can be visited at one of our four weekly adoption events! Check our website for our adoption events and locations near you!

Our Adoption Process...

When you choose to adopt one of Kitten Rescue's animals, required adoption donations begin at $120.00. All of our cats have been spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped prior to adoption.

Many of our cats have also received additional vet care as needed, such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, treatment for ear, eye, upper respiratory infections, and viruses. Additional veterinary care beyond these services, for the (hopefully) long life of your cat, will be your responsibility.

Please be aware that there is a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Kitten Rescue. To help ensure that we place our cats in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem necessary. A home delivery or visit is a required part of the adoption procedure.

If for any reason you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation. After that, be it months or years later and we're still in existence, if you need to give up the animal, please bring it to us. We won't be able to refund the adoption fee, but we will place it in a new home.

Kitten Rescue cats are so for life...we're always here to answer questions and help solve problems.
