Little Dude is going to be a BIG CAT when he grows up! He's about 7 months old now, born April 23, and is already 10 1/2 lbs! Watch his movie here: https://youtu.be/ZfFva1z5Pp4 

Little Dude absolutely adores adult cats, is very submissive to them, chirps eagerly in greeting, and loves to snuggle with them and get them to groom him. 

His second favorite thing is bird watching-- he is an avid and rapt birder, watching the bird feeder intently through my bedroom window.

And, of course, he loves toys and playing! He can easily amuse himself galloping around the house and tossing toy mice in the air for himself. He also gets my adult cats to play with him, sometimes in a game of chase around the house or wrestling in the living room.

Little Dude also has a BIG purr-- very loud, very rumbling. He likes to sleep between my feet and it's like getting a massage every night because he purrs so much. He is very quick to purr when I start stroking his sleek coat too. And he loves to have his chin scratched.

Little Dude does need some patience and understanding. He was rescued at 9 weeks old, but the rescue-family let their child chase him around a bedroom for the first 2 months-- that is the most impressionable age for a kitten so it's taken awhile to overcome. He can still be spooked with quick movements towards him-- so no chasing him unless you're a cat. And he can be a little darty on the floor, but he's also established numerous 'safe spots' in my house where he is totally relaxed and comfortable and I can just walk right over and scoop him up into my arms nd he purrs and rests his head on my shoulder and is happy to be carried around and petted.

Little Dude is curious with new people, but cautious. He will check out your guests when they settle for a visit, but will keep a safe distance. He will do best in an adult household, without active young children. He did sleep on the bed with my 10 year old niece, but darted off when my other niece sat up in the other twin bed.

Having rescued cats for many years there are two situations that I think Little Dude will do best in. My first choice is to a home where he is the only cat and you work from home or are retired and home a lot. He hates to be alone so this would cause him to bond very quickly with a new person. Second choice is to a home with a cat or dog who wants a buddy.

Meet him at this home in Walnut Creek by contacting Dana below.

Our Adoption Process...

CC4C’s adoption program is designed to match each cat with a home that it will have for the rest of its life. Adopting a cat is a lifetime commitment and CC4C wants to make the best possible match for you and your future cat. CC4C strives to provide you with many helpful resources and information about cat care, food and nutrition, health, house training, etc., that you can take home with you and use as a guide to help with your new kitty. The adoption process takes time, so please come early to our adoption sites to work through the process and paperwork. Our CC4C members will work with you to find your perfect match in a cat. Remember, the time you spend getting to know your new cat is well invested, since your cat will live with your for the next 15-20 years. What cat is best for you?

We prefer that all family members living at home participate in the adoption process to ensure the best match. CC4C does not do third-party adoptions (e.g. a gift to another person), but does encourage friends and family members to browse and ask questions if they are helping another to find a companion.

You may download and complete an Adoption Application in advance. Forms are also available at the adoption sites.

To research which CC4C cats are available for adoption, please visit our Available Cats page. Please note that not all of our cats and kittens are posted here, especially during kitten season when we are overwhelmed with new kittens. It is always best to visit the adoption site and speak with a CC4C member to find the cat or kitten that best fits your needs.
