Ernie is a sweet, calm, gentle little boy around 8 months old. He was rescued after his caregivers left him all wet in a bucket, on a cold night. He was emaciated, covered in fleas, and his right eye was deflated. He has made a speedy recovery and is strong and healthy, but his eye may have little sight in it although it is inflated again. It is cloudy and smaller than his other eye, but it does not bother him at all. The vet does not think there are any problems now, but maybe in the future he might need to have it removed. Ernie needs a family that understands this.

Ernie loves wand toys, and playing with other cats and kittens. He has a sweet meow that he uses it to ask for treats. Smart boy. And he loves his best friend Mr. Schnitzel, also in the picture with him. Ernie is very sweet although a little shy with new folks, but very loving and talkative once he trusts you.

He is spayed and up to date on shots. Ernie would do well in a home with kids, cats, and kittens; maybe the right calm and loving dog too.

Our Adoption Process...

CC4C’s adoption program is designed to match each cat with a home that it will have for the rest of its life. Adopting a cat is a lifetime commitment and CC4C wants to make the best possible match for you and your future cat. CC4C strives to provide you with many helpful resources and information about cat care, food and nutrition, health, house training, etc., that you can take home with you and use as a guide to help with your new kitty. The adoption process takes time, so please come early to our adoption sites to work through the process and paperwork. Our CC4C members will work with you to find your perfect match in a cat. Remember, the time you spend getting to know your new cat is well invested, since your cat will live with your for the next 15-20 years. What cat is best for you?

We prefer that all family members living at home participate in the adoption process to ensure the best match. CC4C does not do third-party adoptions (e.g. a gift to another person), but does encourage friends and family members to browse and ask questions if they are helping another to find a companion.

You may download and complete an Adoption Application in advance. Forms are also available at the adoption sites.

To research which CC4C cats are available for adoption, please visit our Available Cats page. Please note that not all of our cats and kittens are posted here, especially during kitten season when we are overwhelmed with new kittens. It is always best to visit the adoption site and speak with a CC4C member to find the cat or kitten that best fits your needs.
