I was rescued from the streets, where I grew up with my mom. We think my mom may have been a kitten who was abandoned herself, because she was not without social skills and she taught me those as well. My mom took good care of me, and I am very healthy. I loved to play with my brothers and sisters, but I have recently discovered a wonderful invention called “cat toys”, and I am totally enthralled with these! I love to run and pounce.

I am a very gentle little guy, a little shy at first, but once you’ve experienced me purring on your lap, you will want to take me home. Although I’m a little shy, I have never so much as hissed at anyone, and I really try to please people. I love to be picked up and cuddled! My foster mom says I will be a lap cat because I sit on her lap for long periods of time and just purr and fall asleep. I especially love my cheeks scratched and ears rubbed, and at night I will happily sleep right next to you in bed if you let me.

I’m looking for a loving home that is quiet and has someone who wants to cuddle and play with me. I would also like another kitty friend to play with. I’m just waiting to fill that empty spot on your lap!

About Peter Zippi Fund For Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Memorial Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The fund sponsors spay/neuter vouchers to qualified persons, and shelter for and adoptions of lost and homeless animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

6 to 12 months of age: $85.00

Cats older than 1 year: $60.00

Over 5 years old to qualified person over 60 years old is free.

These are the minimum fees required. Please note they include the first (and sometimes more) vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, treatment for fleas, worms, and fairly often, costly treatment for other maladies, which result from abandonment

Of course, if you would like to make a larger donation to help cover our care for the homeless animals, we would be delighted. All donations over the minimum fees are tax deductible, and will receive written acknowledgment.

We have an adoption questionaire to fill out prior to being approved, and a personal interview with an adoption counselor is required; at our discretion, a home visit may be required. Adopters agree to keep cat(s) indoors only and to not declaw.
