Facts about Solomon

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10658151
  • Hair: Medium

“Extra floofy” is a hairstyle you probably wouldn’t request from your stylist, but Solomon sure knows how to pull it off!  This Maine Coon guy is ready to settle into a quiet home with a cat savvy guardian who will spoil him with playtime, and lots of his beloved treats (which he will actually chase down!)  Solomon really loves playing with his feather wand toy, and upon capture, he will vigorously rub his cheeks and forehead with the wand's feather and nubbin.

 

When not tracking down treats, and attacking toys, Solomon reveals his sensitive side, climbing onto the bed or couch in order to lie next to your legs. Occasionally, he will crawl up on his foster’s chest and rest his head there, just to be close; no petting required.  

 

Solomon came to the shelter this summer with a limp, which has improved slightly, but requires daily medication.  Due to his condition, we ask that he go to a mellow home with no children.  He is neutered, 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.

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 info@cattownoakland.org 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.
