Bart was born around 4/23/16 and rescued in June with his family-- who've since been adopted. He's a big boy-- already topping the scales at 12 lbs and only 9 months old! Bart's two favorite things in the world are other cats and bird watching. Watch his movie here:

He 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. One of my cats generally hates fosters in the house-- but she has accepted him and snuggles, grooms, and wrestles with him. Magically, Bart has gotten all four of my cats to accept him!

Bart's second favorite thing-- bird watching! He is an avid and rapt birder, watching the bird feeder intently through my bedroom window. And toys, of course! He is very energetic and athletic and has great fun zooming around the house and encouraging my cats to engage in a came of chase.

Bart is cautious, but curious with new people or quick unexpected movements because he was chased as a kitten by a young child in his first foster home. He's continued to make progress with me, running when I shake the treat-bag or pulling out his favorite toy, approaching my hand to sniff and then letting me pick him up where he purrs like crazy against my shoulder. He also has a BIG purr-- very loud, very rumbling. He likes to sleep between my feet or tucks into my side to sleep. And he loves to have his chin scratched.

Bart will need a patient adopter to allow him to settle in to a new home. He will do best in an adult household where the only chasing is by other cats wanting to play.

Meet him at my 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.
