Facts about Valerie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Sweet and petite - that's me! Even my meow is small - more like a little "peep". I have been an excellent mom, but at 1 1/2 years old my kitten-making days are over and I'm ready to settle in to a pampered life. I can be a little shy at first, but it doesn't take me long to warm up and start rubbing your ankles and asking for chin scritches. I don't like to be picked up, and I sometimes startle at loud noises, so I would do best in a home where the children (if any) are older. I have been in foster care with many other kitties and a small dog, and gotten along very well with everyone. I would be just fine as an only kitty, too. I just love hanging out on the back of the couch or top tier of the cat tree so I can keep an eye on things. I have had enough of the great outdoors, and am perfectly content living indoor-only. I am spot-on with the litter box and scratching post, and love, love LOVE chasing laser dots and feathery toys. If you're looking for a quiet companion that is affectionate without being clingy, then I am your girl. Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet. I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $100. I am currently living in foster care.

About The Pixie Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The Pixie Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of animals through adoption services and low cost spay & neuter assistance. Our adoption center and non-profit retail store is located at 510 N.E. MLK Blvd Portland, OR 97232. We are open Tues-Fri 11-6, Sat 11-4.

Part of our mission is to help prevent overcrowding in county and rural shelters, therefore the majority of our animals are transferred from those shelter to Pixie Project. We do not accept owner surrendered pets or strays.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Meeting our adoptable animals:

Pixie Project -- Many of our dogs live on-site in kennels located in the back our facility, with 3 play yards for play groups. Meeting our dogs is by appointment only after an application has been submitted. This ensures we can make the best match for your family!

Pixie Project Cattery – The majority of the Pixie Project’s adoptable cats live in our free roaming cattery at the Pixie Project and are open to the public. No appointment necessary.

Pixie Project Foster Care – At any time The Pixie Project will have several animals living in loving foster homes. If you are interested in meeting an animal that is currently in foster care please contact the Pixie Project at to schedule a meet and greet

Our Adoption Process...

We have an application which can be downloaded from our website and sent back to us via email or fax (503-542-3437). Once the application has been filled out and submitted to us it is forwarded to our adoption committee. Once the application has been reviewed and processed the applicant will be contacted. This process usually takes about 24-48 hours.

All of our animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (excluding rabies), and microchipped. Our adoption fees are based on the age and health of the dog or cat. Each pet’s fee is listed at the end of their description.
