Facts about Cosmo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10605816
  • Hair: Short

With model-worthy looks, sporting a snowy white coat, and dark rimmed eyes, Cosmo looks like he could have just stepped off the catwalk.  In reality, he’s not really into the limelight, at least not until you get to know him.  


Cosmo was very stressed at the shelter this summer before he was able to move into the comfort of a calm foster home with Cat Town.  He’s had some time to relax, and now we’re getting to see his playful and affectionate side!  His foster parents recently told us about Cosmo’s progress in their home:

“Cosmo has two main passions in life: getting his cheeks scratched, and treats. He has a signature "lean over and flop" move when you start scratching his cheek. He has been allowing himself to get pets and treats, and he is continuing to make such great progress! Once he became more confident in our home, we found that he LOVES to play- he will play soccer by himself with his mice, he goes crazy with the Cat Dancer, and is always in pursuit of that mysterious laser pointer.”


The perfect family for Cosmo will be patient and experienced with cats, mindful to read Cosmo's moods and gently encourage him.  With the right person, we think Cosmo will be ready to make his debut on that catwalk in time for next season’s collections.


Cosmo is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.  Cosmo needs to be an indoor-only cat, and is $50 to adopt.

Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, formed by long term volunteers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) and other Bay Area shelters.

About Cat Town

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) cat rescue organization based in Oakland, CA. Formed by volunteers of Oakland Animal Services (OAS) (Oakland's municipal shelter), our mission is to find homes for the cats least likely to be adopted from OAS because they can't handle the stress of the shelter environment. By getting these cats into foster homes, they can relax and show their true personalities to potential adopters. We focus on older semi-feral kittens, stressed, shy or undersocialized cats, and cats who are older and/or have special needs. We are a relatively new organization and are all-volunteer run. We operate on a shoestring budget so can always use financial donations, as well as food, litter and other supplies. We are always looking for great foster homes and volunteers for everything that we do. Helping these vulnerable cats is pure joy! Please contact us at to get involved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, but some are in surrounding cities. Our fosters are generally very flexible about scheduling cat introductions.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, or other nearby cities. We will talk to you by phone to make sure the cat sounds like a good fit for your home before setting up an introduction in the foster home. We have a pretty straightforward adoption application, which you will be asked to complete only after you have met a cat who you want to adopt. Our adoption fees for kittens and cats up to age 7 are $50 for a single cat or $75 for pair; cats age 8 an older are $35 for a single cat or $50 for a pair. All cats are spayed/neutered, current on their vaccinations and microchipped. Cats age six months or older are tested for FIV/FeLV.
