Facts about Pearlie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10339163-B486
  • Hair: Short

DOB: 3/17/12

You would think that being born on St. Patrick's day would have given Pearlie and her little kitty family a bit of good luck, but sadly, just the opposite happened. Pearlie and her siblings were born to their mom in a storm drain during a very harsh storm and when they were found the next day, they were barely alive. The foster parent had to tube feed the little kittens because they were too sick to nurse on mom, and mom was too sick to care for her kittens. After months of medical attention and effort, the kittens recovered to varying degrees. Pearlie lost an eye, has a chronically stuffy nosy and also has a touch of a neurological condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. The CH means she has a slightly wobbly walk, but she is highly functional and can walk and play and use a litter box just fine. 
Pearlie would love to be adopted with her sister Belle, who looks just like her. Belle and Pearlie curl up and sleep together, and they love to hang out together throughout the day. Pearlie would love a home with someone who can see the 'special' and doesn't mind the 'needs'. This little girl is affectionate, calm, outgoing and social. Pearlie has lived with small dogs and young children and is comfortable with them.

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.
