Rusty and his 4 brothers and one calico sister were born in April and were in the care of Cats Cradle Volunteers since they were about 7 weeks old. They were found in Reseda and rescued by a cat lover who didn't have the resources to take care of them properly. She contacted us and we agreed to help.
They were all very starved, sickly and skinny when they arrived at Cats Cradle Rescue but are now healthy, happy, and ready for new homes. Rusty is still cautious about meeting new people, but is very affectionate with people he knows and trusts to move slowly and not try to pick him up. When you are quietly watching TV, he will jump up onto your lap for a chin scratch and flop down for a good back rub. He LOVES treats and will take them from your fingers. He still startles easily and is very cautious about new things and noises so the people who adopt him will need to be patient and knowledgeable about shy cats..
Rusty and brother Roswell are both very active, playful, and loving young cats, even though they will be a bit shy until they get to know and trust you. Please call 805-647-7173 if you have questions about adopting one of these beautiful cats or wish to meet Rusty or Roswell.
Cats Cradle Rescue animals are spayed or neutered and have received at least one vaccination before they are placed up for adoption; however, kittens receive two vaccinations. Each animal lives in a foster home as part of the family.
Cats Cradle Rescue requires an adoption application and contract with each animal. Our adoption fee covers Feline Leukemia and Feline Immuno Virus testing, first year's shots, spay/neuter and microchip. We also send you home with a collar, CCR tag and starter food.
