Facts about Chester

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7955664-CF6617
  • Hair: Short

DOB:  11/2010

Chester is approximately 4 years old, and is loving, affectionate, a fastidious groomer and very communicative about what he wants.  He was a stray found in Van Nuys, and had obviously been homeless for a while.  He's a great talker!  His sounds are diverse and original and he really makes different meows for different meanings.  Chester loves to cuddle - your lap is his best friend!  He wants to be near his human and likes his paws touching some part of you.  He is very careful about his claws and doesn't scratch when he plays.

Chester has tested positive for FIV (feline Immunodeficiency Virus). FIV is not a big deal; given proper care and attention, an FIV+ cat will live the same lifespan as an FIV negative cat. The disease is extremely hard to transmit from cat to cat, requiring direct blood contact (typically from a deep puncture wound). It is not transmissable to humans. Click here for a basic FAQ about FIV. If you'd like to read a much more detailed and comprehensive FAQ about FIV, we recommend this site.

Please let me know if you would like to meet Chester - he's so loving and wonderful!  He's just about 10 pounds, litter box trained, neutered and microchipped!

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.
