  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9733466

Gringo had a rough start in life but now is a playful, adorable, athletic kitten!

Estimated DOB is May 2015.

Gringo had a rough start in life as a feral kitten. He and his sister were taken up and fed by his now foster mom and he has since acclimated to domestic life. In his foster home, he peacefully shares a habitat with two Pomeranian dogs. He also loves to snuggle, especially with other cats. He'll also jump on couches and beds to find a warm spot and be petted. Because he is such a curious, sociable and alert little guy, he'll sit in front of the TV and stare as his foster parents while they play video games.
Gringo's favorite toys are feathered and he loves to perch near windows to watch birds. He is quite athletic and will do flips like a professional gymnast. He is also a hearty eater and begs for treats every chance he gets.  Other toys he enjoys are laser pointers and tennis balls. He would love to have you as a playmate in his forever home.

About HOPE (Homeless & Orphaned Pets Endeavor)

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to end the homelessness of cats and dogs through foster to adoption, feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return, and education.

HOMELESS & ORPHANED PETS ENDEAVOR (HOPE) is an all-foster, no kill adoption group based in the Houston area.

HOPE covers the cost of general medical expenses for the animals in the program, such as altering, routine vaccinations and treatment for parasites. Our foster families are asked to provide food, shelter and love to the animals for which they care. They receive no payment for the services that they provide. Without them, and the other volunteers who so selflessly do what is necessary to keep HOPE afloat, it would not be possible to run this nonprofit corporation.

One aim of HOPE is to develop a network of area rescue and humane organizations which will facilitate the rescue and placement of a variety of animals. The goal is to never have to turn away an animal in need. By forming a coalition of humane and rescue groups in the Houston area, we could potentially place all animals who need a temporary home until they are placed into a permanent one.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Mobile adoption sessions are held on the weekends. All adoption sessions run from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at a variety of locations and days as noted on our website For more information, please contact us at

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting an animal is a very serious decision and we want to be sure that our potential adoptive families have thought about the impact of this decision carefully. To adopt an animal through HOPE, we request that you complete an Adoption Application, a copy of which is available online for cats at or for dogs at You may fill it out online or print a copy of the application and complete it prior to arriving at an adoption session. This will expedite the adoption process and will also assist our adoption counselors in matching you to a suitable pet.

We at HOPE make every effort to match our foster pets to appropriate homes. If you feel that we are too intrusive, please understand that it is because we care about their welfare.

All animals are neutered or spayed and have received age appropriate shots prior to being adopted. We ask that you provide a $100 donation for cats and a donation of $150 for dogs when you adopt your new family member from us. This donation helps us in defraying the costs of these and other medical needs of our animals.
