Jasper is a mature kitty; an amiable and gentlemanly fellow who not only has a very silly side, but absolutely craves all of the love and attention you will shower on him. This guy even loves loves loves being held like a baby, and there's a lot of him to love. And, he comes when you call his name!

His back story: he belonged to a neighbor along with 3 other cats, which overwhelmed her. Due to being free-fed the cheapest food, and not getting any activity, he was morbidly obese at 25 lbs. when I first catsit for him and his roommates. When his owner went into a nursing home, she sent him to the L.A. Animal Shelter, where he languished in fear, ignored because of this and his not being a pretty kitten. When they called to tell me they were going to euthanize him, I rescued him and started giving him all of the love, attention, and (just the right amount) of good food. Today he is a svelte 12.6 lbs.!! He's a big-boned fella with a big head, so he'll never be thin, but that just means more to love.

Jasper loves to play with toys, and will frequently run around and race up and down his cat tree having a good old-fashioned kitty freak-out, when he's not having the usual cat-naps. And he will come over a lot asking for some love and lap-time, so you'll have lots of cuddle time. Excellent companion for any adult, and best suited to being the only kitty. He does get along with my other cats, but he will occasionally start a spat or chase after one of them just for amusement, so homing with other cats is possible but probably not ideal.

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.
