Tango is a very relaxed, mellow, sweet and sensitive lap cat who would make a great companion for someone who is home a lot and would like some company. He LOVES to curl up in your lap when you are watching TV and has a powerful purr that can be very comforting. He also likes to sleep/cuddle with you. Tango entertains himself by playing with his favorite toy, a long piece of drawstring or ribbon that he can bat around on the floor. He also likes basking in the sun by a window, watching the outside world.  As many cats will do, Tango has even been like a watchdog for his foster mom, coming to an alert posture when sensing a person or animal outside.

Tango gets along with other cats, unless they have an aggressive streak. He has lived with other adult cats in his foster home, although, like many adult cats, he’s not fond of young kittens. He also lived with two dogs and would lay in wait for the poor hound dog as she came inside through the doggie door.

The color of his coat is special: The individual hairs in the large buff-colored spots on his coat are each white with a brown spot in the middle of the hair, giving his large spots a frosted appearance. He is a large-framed, hefty cat, weighing a steady 18 ½ pounds.

Tango lived for three years (from kittenhood) with his first adopters. However, they tearfully returned him to us when they learned that their infant had a skin allergy. Many pictures and videos from his kitten days (as young as 3 weeks old) are available.

Tango is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and tested negative for FeLV/FIV.

About Kitten Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome! Kitten Rescue is a non-profit organization located in the Los Angeles area, devoted to rescuing needy kittens and cats from shelter euthanasia and abandonment. We provide our rescued cats with all necessary medical attention and ongoing treatment to establish their health, while caring for them in foster homes, where they're given abundant love and affection. The kitties like that part the best!

Kitten Rescue presents cats for adoption regularly at locations all over Los Angeles County, in addition to conducting private adoptions during the week, with the goal of finding loving, committed homes for every animal we take in. We also offer education and help to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our kitties live in foster homes and can be visited at one of our four weekly adoption events! Check our website for our adoption events and locations near you!

Our Adoption Process...

When you choose to adopt one of Kitten Rescue's animals, required adoption donations begin at $120.00. All of our cats have been spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped prior to adoption.

Many of our cats have also received additional vet care as needed, such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, treatment for ear, eye, upper respiratory infections, and viruses. Additional veterinary care beyond these services, for the (hopefully) long life of your cat, will be your responsibility.

Please be aware that there is a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Kitten Rescue. To help ensure that we place our cats in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem necessary. A home delivery or visit is a required part of the adoption procedure.

If for any reason you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation. After that, be it months or years later and we're still in existence, if you need to give up the animal, please bring it to us. We won't be able to refund the adoption fee, but we will place it in a new home.

Kitten Rescue cats are so for life...we're always here to answer questions and help solve problems.
