Facts about Alicia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Alicia was rescued from an irrigation canal. She is was born about 4/7/16 and is smart, active and healthy. She has had two distemper shots and been spayed.

Alicia is one of the nicest young cats we have ever rescued. We are amazed she hasn't been adopted. Her legs seem a little short for her body, but that doesn't limit her activity. When she outlasted all the other kittens last summer, she was released with the adult cats. She holds her own without any fights. She plays with other cats and alone.

Alicia only weighed 7.3 ounces when rescued and was covered with fleas. Because so young and small, we had to isolate her and give lots of baths to cure the flea problem. On the good side, she has been handled a lot, purrs a lot and assumes laps are her home territory. She has joined the cats that sleep with me.

Alicia can be seen by appointment, at Trendy Pet and Rescue near Dillard's in the mall Thursdays 11-3pm, or at Choice Pet Market Sundays 11-3 pm (except 1st weekend).

About SOS Kitty

About Our Rescue Group...

I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so chose to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.

I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Two foster homes in north Scottsdale have offered to show SOS Kitty cats and kittens for potential adoption by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $60 and $100 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements.
We accept other donations, but are not yet an independent 501c3. Our veterinary costs at this time average $110/female and $92/male kitten. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+.
We love PetSmart or PetCo gift cards!
We feed ProPlan Chicken & Rice Adult to almost all cats (always available) and Fancy Feast wet food twice a day with some Trader Joe's Tuna for Cats. Wet food is as a check on health issues as well as added moisture in diet and treat.
Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered.
We do not adopt out unaltered animals.
As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions.
We adopt to indoor-only situations.
We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat.
We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first. Similar police issues.
We work to assist Safe Haven for Animals, Inc., in placing their cats and showing at sites they cannot cover.
Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes.
We usually take cats/kittens to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where we can show cats/kittens by appointment, We show cats & kittens every Thursday at Trendy Pet & Rescue in Scottsdale Fashion Squar. Wwe show cats at Choice (Shea & 71st Streets) two Sundays a month and PetCo (Fountain Hills) one Saturday a month.
We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee. Ditto kittens but usually no refund. We want each of our rescues to be in permanent, loving homes.
