Facts about Amber

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7369646-F13383
  • Hair: Medium

One look into her eyes, and you'll know why this jewel of a kitty is named Amber. Her stunning gold eyes will just warm your heart. Legend has it that a cat's eyes are the window to her soul, and what you find in Amber's soul is a kitty that loves attention, and repays her humans by being very loving and social. A wonderful and mellow companion, Amber loves the indoor-only life at her foster home where she watches all the neighborhood happenings from the safety of a window perch. Sadly, Amber's human died recently. The daughters of the deceased man are trying to rehome Amber and her three housemates (Cleo, Louie (Amber's actual brother), and Norma Jean) and get their lives back to normal in a loving home as quickly as possible. Adopting a young adult is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because their personalities are already developed, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Amber's ideal humans are those who crave the quiet nature and loving personality of a young adult, and will happily include her in their daily activities. She'll do best in a quiet home with adults and older children to keep her company. She's a bit cautious around other cats because her brother Louie tends to bully her, but she should do fine in a home with another mellow, passive kitty or a cat-friendly dog. With a loving family, she'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in 2008, Amber is an orange tabby DSH female, is spayed, fully vaccinated, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped for identification. She uses the litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only. Please contact Amber's foster mom at or call (408) 228-4440 (voicemail) for more information about adoption; messages returned within 24 hours. This is a courtesy posting.

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)
