Facts about King

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10781611
  • Hair: Long

King is a confident, playful, sweetheart of a cat with lots of cute and quirky attributes.  If you’re looking for a big personality to fill your home, look no further!  King is very playful; his favorite toys are catnip mice, and he also likes to run and play tag around the house.  He’s a total sucker for cat treats, and will come running at the faintest sound of the treat bag.  After eating, he has a funny little habit of playing with his water bowl. He prefers to splash his paw into the bowl and drink from his paw, rather than the dish itself. This has led to some damp floors (and giggles) in his foster home.

When King isn’t stalking the catnip mice, he’s quite the companion to his people.  He enjoys being nearby, investigating all activities in the house, and hanging out when you’re cooking in the kitchen.  He's always happy to see you when you come home, and sometimes he likes to lay on your chest to give you hugs and kisses, until a toy catches his eye, then he's off to play again.

When playing with his people, King sometimes gets overly excited and forgets his manners.  He’ll need some help learning that hands are not toys, and should go to a home with experienced cat guardians, and older cat-savvy children.   

King is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.  He is $50 to adopt.  

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.
