The name Ida is derived from the Germanic element id meaning “work, labour.” Ida the cat has definitely labored as she recently was the mother of FIVE adorable kittens. Ida was a very good mom, and all five babies have found wonderful homes. Now it is Ida’s turn, and rightfully so, to find her forever loving home. She has now been spayed, so she won’t have the worry of raising kids anymore; her only job right now is interviewing and promoting herself as the best kitty for YOUR new BFF. Ida was in a foster home while raising the youngins, but after they left, she got to spend one-on-one time with her foster mom who reports Ida is a very sweet girl. She would greet her foster mom at the door when she got home waiting to jump in her lap to enjoy petting and attention. She likes for you to converse with her; mostly telling her just how very pretty she is. Ida is a gorgeous calico with a very sweet and calm ‘purr’sonality, who will make a great cat and friend for most anyone. The Swedes like giving their girls simple, delicate, and feminine names, but yet with some sparkle. They are often very short, like “Ida.” Ida the kitty does have “sparkle,” and is sure to sparkle up your home with love and happiness if only given the chance. Please come in very soon to OAR during adoption hours to meet and fall in love with Ida...

Our Adoption Process...

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. Adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50.

Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
