November update: Simba and Tiger are such wonderful kitties .They really want to help you do your chores around the house. Simba lay all over the carpet we were trying to put down, making the whole process great fun rather than work. He was insistent and so happy and goofy. Lounging, rolling side to side.. Tiger was excited by a pile of boxes and other stuff on the floor and he had mess with all of it. Running for my camera, I missed the best photos of him climbing in all the boxes and making us laugh. Then he stood on his hind legs sweetly asking for pets. Tiger loves catnip and is tireless in searching it out.

These two kitty housemates are very interactive cats.They want to be closely involved with their humans, making eye and body contact. They are perfect family cats. Everyone just loves them.They are ready to go to their new home and take up their jobs again of entertaining and loving and comforting their humans. Some family will be so lucky to have their company. These gentle, well-behaved cats would also be great with gentle children.

Original Post: This boy, Simba, was brought to a shelter with his kitty companion, Tiger. It is one of the frustrations of being in rescue that we will never know the story that brought them here. We also don’t know how Simba lost his hind leg. What happened? Whatever it was, Simba seems to have adapted well and is fine with his three legs.

I am always singing the praises of the red, or red and white boys. Simba again is an example of how loving they are; they are the sweetest cats. Simba just wants you to pet him. If you put out your hand he will put his head into it and stare into your eyes and just leave it there. “Hold me and love me,” he says. He also likes to roll around and show his super-soft, fluffy tummy.

And, of course, he loves to eat. We feed Tiger on a higher level so Simba cannot eat his food. Actually, we would like Simba to lose some weight, a couple pounds. I think it would help his mobility. He walks easily – hops with his hind leg as tripod kitties do. But then he sits down. A little less weight would help him. Simba is in perfect health otherwise. He always uses his litterbox and seems entirely comfortable with his three-legged status. We have fostered a number of tripods and they all do surprisingly well.

Simba and Tiger, the Scottish Fold, have lost their home and their family, but they will not lose each other. They MUST go home together.

I have a feeling these two were family cats named by children. I think they would be good again with children maybe five years old and up. Since Simba is a tripod kitty, I would not suggest they be adopted by a family with a dog unless it was a seriously gentle, unthreatening dog. These two cats are well trained to be inside-only house cats who offer companionship and entertainment for their humans. An adult-only family would be fine, also. They may be all right with a home with a gentle kitty. I just don’t want anyone two footed or four footed chasing or scaring Simba.

Simba (very happily) eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
