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. 





About Cats Cradle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a volunteer run, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping homeless cats and kittens in Ventura County. We help abandoned and unwanted animals find wonderful, new, forever homes by taking them in, getting them any needed medical care, loving them and raising them to be loving pets, then adopting them out at one of our three adoption sites. We will take in nursing or pregnant cats, newborn motherless kittens, older kittens and in some cases homeless adults cats.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help out at adoptions as well as foster animals. There are always more animals in need of care than foster homes. Cats Cradle will supply food and litter, you supply the love! Please call or email if you are interested in helping out.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoptions every Saturday and Sunday at our Ventura Thrift Store 11 to 5, Saturdays at PetCo in Ventura, Saturdays at PetCo Camarillo and Saturdays at PetSmart Newbury Park.

We have a great selection of kittens & cats!
