Facts about Andante

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 1433
  • Hair: Short

Andante is a playful boy! This playful, tabby with gorgeous markings is outgoing and engaged, and he keeps track of whatever is going on in his foster home.  Andante loves attention, and purrs as soon as he sees one of his people approaching.  He will snuggle with you for a bit, then wants to play! Andante especially loves chasing the teaser toy across the room, and playing with toys with bells.  If not playing, he is exploring; just checking out what you are doing in the kitchen or what the neighborhood birds and squirrels are doing outside the window.

He adores his Siamese-mix sister Allegra, and loves to romp and tumble and explore with her. They entertain each other endlessly. Once he's had his fill, he loves to snuggle up with her for a nap in the kitty hammock, or he will get cozy in his cat bed or make a nest out of blankets.

Both Allegra and Andante are comfortable around his foster-family's small dog, so it would be an easy transition for them to make friends with a cat-friendly dog.

Allegra and Andante's long-suffering mama-cat managed to raise 8 (yes eight!) kittens living homeless on the streets.  Fortunately, when they were about 4 weeks old a kind family saw the mama-cat hiding her babies under a storage shed for safety and began to feed the brood.  They called Community Cat Rescue for help and with their assistance we trapped all 8 kittens and their mama.  Mama, who is feral,  was spayed, given a health check, vaccinated, treated for parasites and released back in the neighborhood, where the family will be feeding her.  Live will be easier now that she doesn't have to worry about caring for endless litters of kittens, and she has shelter and a regular supply of good food. Happy endings all around!

Please note:

  • Andante should be adopted with a littermate

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.

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!
