Facts about Poppy

  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10649367
  • Hair: Short

Poppy is a well-rounded young cat who is sure to bring a pop of joy to your home with her cute and spunky antics.  This flirty girl will charm you daily, greeting you at the door and following you from room to room, emitting cute little chirps that request pets.  Love and affection are definitely Poppy’s #1 priority!  Her foster mom shares some of the joys of having Poppy in her home:


“She loves pets and affection and loves being the center of attention. She purrs up a storm and when she's really happy, starts making air biscuits.  Every night, she sleeps near the foot of the bed next to me and every morning, plops herself on my chest while I'm in bed and gives me a kitty smile.”


As a reformed street kitty, Poppy’s street smarts are evident in the way she stalks her toys, and the other cats in the house, with whom she loves to play.  She also enjoys watching the birds outside, from a comfy indoor perch.  She could be a great companion for another young cat, and could do well in a home with older cat-savvy kids.  

Poppy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.  


Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, formed by long term volunteers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) and other Bay Area shelters. We have partnered with OAS to take the cats who are least likely to do well in a shelter setting. Please learn more about Cat Town by checking out our website at or our Facebook Page at

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.
