I can imitate an abalone! Put me on your lap and I will demonstrate.

I was turned in as a stray at the shelter, and it was so very scary there. Because I am a beautiful young cat, and would never think of scratching or biting people, someone adopted me. But they brought me back in just a couple of days because I hid under their bed. They don’t understand cats very well, I guess.

The PZF folks took a chance on me, and I showed them my abalone trick. They put me on their laps, and I attach permanently. I love that! Next step was to go to a foster home to see what would happen. A very cat-savvy woman put me in her office room. I loved being on her lap or my safe place under her desk. If she carried me upstairs and stayed with me, I would stay, but if left alone, I would hurry down to my safe place. After only 5 days, I went upstairs all by myself! I also help her with her daily workout as well – check out the photos!

My job in life is to love someone greatly, but I am a “fraidy-cat” for a while until I get to trust that person. If you are in the market for a gentle friend, understand how shy cats respond at first, and are willing to be patient while I grow my courage, I will pay you back a thousand fold in love… and do my abalone trick all day long!

Sincerely and hopefully, Monty

About Peter Zippi Fund For Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Memorial Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The fund sponsors spay/neuter vouchers to qualified persons, and shelter for and adoptions of lost and homeless animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

6 to 12 months of age: $85.00

Cats older than 1 year: $60.00

Over 5 years old to qualified person over 60 years old is free.

These are the minimum fees required. Please note they include the first (and sometimes more) vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, treatment for fleas, worms, and fairly often, costly treatment for other maladies, which result from abandonment

Of course, if you would like to make a larger donation to help cover our care for the homeless animals, we would be delighted. All donations over the minimum fees are tax deductible, and will receive written acknowledgment.

We have an adoption questionaire to fill out prior to being approved, and a personal interview with an adoption counselor is required; at our discretion, a home visit may be required. Adopters agree to keep cat(s) indoors only and to not declaw.
