"Hi, my name is Nicky. I am a very big and lovable boy. I am popular with the volunteers at the shelter, because I love giving and receiving attention, and I am full of personality! I am a bit of a divo (a male diva), and like to be the center of attention. If I feel it is time for you to notice me, I will let you know with my meows. I would be very happy to spend my days stretched out next to you. I do need to lose some weight, so some play time would be great. Unfortunately, I was recently returned to the shelter because my family had to move and were sad they were unable to take me. Although I have shared my home with other kitties, my preference is to be your one and only cat. I was born in 2004, and I want to find my forever home. If you want to meet a one of a kind kitty, please come by to visit me soon.” Feel free to visit our website at www.homelesscatnetwork.com or go to www.petfinder.com to learn more about other adoptable cats.

Homeless Cat Network works hard to help cats and kittens in need on the San Francisco Peninsula. We provide advice, support and guidance to people who have found and wish to help community cats, and our volunteers do hands-on rescue work.
Our lifesaving initiatives focus on solving the root problem of cat homelessness and include: TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) programs for feral cats; kitten rescuing, fostering and adoption efforts; educational outreach; responsible community cat colony management; and mentoring people to help cats in need. We also have a unique Socialization Center, which gives abandoned, abused and neglected adult cats the chance to heal from their emotional and physical wounds and find the home of their dreams. All of our efforts work toward a single goal: to bring about a day when there are no more homeless cats, and with your help, we'll make that dream come true.
Our adoption process includes: (1) The application; (2) An in-person meeting with the cat and an HCN volunteer; and (3) A home visit to discuss safety and adjustment issues, prior to the adoption. An adoption contract will be signed and an adoption fee collected.
