From rough beginnings to a very happy, affectionate cat...
Hi my name is Gaia!  I am a beautiful 2-year old tortoiseshell cat.  I came to Animal Rescue of the Rockies when my newborn kittens and I were rescued from a window well in Denver.  I was a wonderful and attentive Mama to my kittens.  All of my kittens have found their forever homes, and now it is my turn.  
I may be a little shy at first, but once I feel safe then I am extremely affectionate and curious.  I love to lay with my foster mom and purr while 'making biscuits' on her lap.  I am a mellow gal and I get along well with cats and dogs.  I am so happy to have a home where I am safe and warm and can sit by the window to keep an eye on the critters outside.
I am part of the '16 for 2016' special, which means my adoption fee is only $25 because I have been waiting to find my forever family for over a year. If you are looking for a cat who is mellow and affectionate, you should definitely consider adding me to your home.
If you would like to learn more about me, don't hesitate to contact my foster mom at

Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes that every pet should find a wonderful, caring home. To ensure each pet finds the best possible home, we ask that you fill out an adoption application form so we can learn more about you and your household. We review each application we receive and will contact you as quickly as possible. A home visit will be scheduled before any pet is adopted to a new home. Once a home visit has taken place and the adoption application has been approved, we will ask you to read and sign our adoption agreement form. Our adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter, veterinary exams, vaccinations, microchipping, and foster care.  Highly requested breeds help cover the vet costs incurred by some of our other cats, enabling us to save more lives!
$225 for purebred/highly requested kittens (6 months & under)
$150 for purebred/highly requested cats (older than 6 months)
$90 for kittens (6 months & under)  
$65 for cats (older than 6 months)  
$35 for senior cats (8 years or older)

We want our pets to go to a lifelong new home, so thank you for your patience during the adoption process!

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here.

Our adoption process is:

2. We'll contact you to schedule a home visit.

3. If the pet looks like a great match, fill out our Adoption Agreement online (or Foster-to-Adopt Agreement), pay the Adoption Fee, and arrange to pick up your new furry family member!
