Facts about Whitney

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 1420
  • Hair: Short

Found with another juvenile female in a group of homeless cats on an unoccupied business campus, Whitney was trapped and taken into foster care.

She is a very pretty, pure white kitty, with a gray 'brushstroke' on her topskull. Whitney will sit on your lap while being petted, and loves to stretch out in her kitty bed and on her fosterer's bed. She is friendly and playful, and can entertain herself with her toys, but loves to interact with you...especially when you play with her with wand toys. Her fosterer has taught Whitney to do 'high fives' for treats, and she will also play fetch with you. Clever kitty!

Whitney can be adopted as a single kitty, though when trapped she was accompanied by Glenda, a gray medium-haired female, who is being fostered separately from Whitney. In foster care, Whitney has the company of her fosterer's young adult male cat, and they get along well, so Whitney probably will do well adopted to a home with a friendly and still-playful male kitty.

Spayed, tested, microchipped, FVRCP vaccinated, and treated for flea and worms.

About Community Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Community Cat Rescue was formed to improve the lives of homeless cats through adoption, promotion of spaying/neutering, TNR and colony management and educational outreach to the public. We are a group of experienced rescue and TNR volunteers who have developed a network of foster homes for rescued street cats, and a regular program of outreach for adoption and education at local farmers markets, public events and at pet stores and shopping areas. We host a minimum of 3 outreach events per month, and often as many as 6 events. In addition to adopting out cats as family pets, we also have an active TNR program, including relocation of feral cats as "working cats" to appropriate homes if they are not safe in their original territory.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sundays 10:00 AM to 1 PM at the California Avenue Farmers Market, Palo Alto (see website for dates)

Saturdays, 8:00 AM to Noon, at the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market on Gilman Street (see website for dates)

Our Adoption Process...

Potential Adopters fill out an adoption profile and application to help ensure that the cat or kittens they are applying for is/are a good match for their household. This is followed by an interview (phone or in person). All of our cats are in foster homes, so we know their personalities very well and can help you make a great match for everyone in your home.

If there are other pets in the household we provide assistance in introducing the new cat(s). We have lots of experience with multiple cat households, and we will work with you to make sure that everyone gets along and is happy. Cats or kittens can be returned to us within two weeks if they do not fit into your family or household.

Our contract specifically prohibits declawing and requires that if the new owner find that scratching is a problem, they return the cat to us rather than declaw.

Our adoption fees are $100 for a kitten (or $175 for two kittens)and $50 for adult cats (over 12 months old), all of whom are spay/neutered, micro-chipped, immunized, treated for fleas and worms and given any required veterinary treatment before adoption. The value of these treatments is several times the adoption fee!
