Facts about Kitty

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8093631-Q505
  • Hair: Short

DOB: 9/27/11

Kitty is a confident, curious, intelligent and very well behaved girl.  She’s a delightful companion to live with as she’s alert and aware, has a sweet disposition, she wants to know the ‘goings on’ in the house, and doesn’t make any demands upon the people or other cats in the house.   Her overall health is excellent. 

From the moment she entered the home of her foster mom, Kitty was respectful of the house and furniture; she does her business in the cat box only, and she doesn’t scratch the furniture.   She was respectful of the 3 resident cats in the house; Kitty allowed them their space, wa not confrontational, and asserted herself gently in the household…she just knows how to behave!   She now lives at the Kitten Rescue Sanctuary in a cage-free area with 30-35 other adult cats.

Kitty likes a moderate amount of petting and holding; she loves being scratched on her cheeks/whisker area – but once she’s had enough she’ll start thumping her tail and that’s your cue! She’ll often roll onto her back in the throes of petting pleasure, seemingly asking for a belly rub, which she appreciates, briefly.  Too much and she’ll let ‘ya know! Kitty just needs to feel that you respect her needs and she’ll respect yours.  

Kitty is fixed, tested negative for leukemia, dewormed, flea treated, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. She did test a very, very faint positive for FIV using one brand of test (IDEXX), and negative using another brand (Witness), which means we can't say with 100% certainty that she is FIV-negative, but the results could been from an FIV vaccine, from something in her blood that reacts with the reagents in the one brand of test but not the other, or from being infected with FIV but with the virus at such a low level that it barely registers on one test and not at all on the other. Unfortunately, there's no good way to confirm either way what her FIV status is, so we have to call it indeterminate. This does not make her a threat to other cats nor does it represent a substantial short- or long-term health risk, but it's something to be aware of.

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.
