Derby is one of a litter of 4 kittens, 2 girls and 2 boys.  She is named after the Kentucky Derby race track cause she has a brave big heart despite the fact that she is much smaller than her brothers and sister.   So she is a tiny kitten but with the heart of a race horse.

She is very sweet and likes being held and petted.  She does her best to keep up with her big litter mates and plays hard and fast and smart.  Her big heart makes up for her little size.  She purrs at everything - when breakfast is served, when she is playing, when she is being petted, when she is running as fast as she can, and she has even been know to purr sitting in the litter box!


She is mostly gray and has a tiny little face.   She is a kitten with the heart of a lioness. So cute!!!!


If you are interested in Derby or any of her siblings - Daytona, Indy or Laguna, please contact their foster Linda at or 925 708 3881.

Our Adoption Process...

CC4C’s adoption program is designed to match each cat with a home that it will have for the rest of its life. Adopting a cat is a lifetime commitment and CC4C wants to make the best possible match for you and your future cat. CC4C strives to provide you with many helpful resources and information about cat care, food and nutrition, health, house training, etc., that you can take home with you and use as a guide to help with your new kitty. The adoption process takes time, so please come early to our adoption sites to work through the process and paperwork. Our CC4C members will work with you to find your perfect match in a cat. Remember, the time you spend getting to know your new cat is well invested, since your cat will live with your for the next 15-20 years. What cat is best for you?

We prefer that all family members living at home participate in the adoption process to ensure the best match. CC4C does not do third-party adoptions (e.g. a gift to another person), but does encourage friends and family members to browse and ask questions if they are helping another to find a companion.

You may download and complete an Adoption Application in advance. Forms are also available at the adoption sites.

To research which CC4C cats are available for adoption, please visit our Available Cats page. Please note that not all of our cats and kittens are posted here, especially during kitten season when we are overwhelmed with new kittens. It is always best to visit the adoption site and speak with a CC4C member to find the cat or kitten that best fits your needs.
