My name is Karla!  I am about 3 1/2 years old.  You can always pick me out from a crowd because I have really neat features:  First, one of my ears has a fold - just like those on Taylor Swift's cat!  Second, my fur is black with white patches (or white with black patches - whichever you prefer!) and my foster momma calls me her "Li'l Panda"!  Third, I have this adorable black patch by my nose that looks like a mustache, giving me that "distinguished" look!

A perch by the window is my favorite snoozing spot and I love watching what's going on outside!   I love to be near you, follow you around where I can always see you and will keep your lap warm when you sit down.  I am dreaming of a calm and quiet furever home.  I currently live with my foster siblings - cats and small dogs -  and they all respect my space, which I very much appreciate.  I like having my quiet time.  When there is a lot going on, I am happy to spend my quiet time under the table or behind the curtain, I am not really picky.  If you have another cat and/or dog, a slow introduction is more my pace - please do not rush me so I do not feel overwhelmed.   I have not met small children yet and do not know how I feel about them.  So please supervise us when we are together.

I have been told I could lose some weight, so I am on a diet.  No special food or anything, just portion control.   I love getting getting scratches on my chin, at the nape of my neck and by my ears. I also love the feel of your thumb petting on my forehead and could never get enough of it!

Have you ever heard of a cat who comes when called?  I do! Just wiggle your fingers and I am there!  Don't believe me? Watch my video:  

Hoomans have been very nice and gentle to me, so I am very trusting - often laying on my back showing my fluffy belly with its pretty Panda markings - I even nap that way!  However, I am very ticklish there - so please, pretty please, do not touch my fluffy belly!  Here is a video of how I love to be petted:

Like other cats, I have an "elevator butt" but I am a little ticklish there too, so while I enjoy being petted there, please watch my tail when petting me there - when I start thrashing my tail, please stop - as I can only take so much tickling!

I am very sweet and gentle - they call me a doll - but I am no prima donna! I promise I will love you furever when you take me home!

About Twin Cities Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) is a small, 501c3 nonprofit, companion animal rescue organization. TCPR does not have a facility and is 100% foster-based. TCPR rescues dogs, cats and small animals of all breeds; rescuing them from city impounds, puppy mills, and other situations of abuse and neglect. Once rescued, all animals receive veterinary care ranging from spay/neuter, vaccines, microchips, and basic testing to specialty eye surgeries, pet dermatology care, and various other specialty treatments. Once an animal is rescued by TCPR, it remains in a foster home until adopted, no matter how long that might take.
TCPR often rescues animals that are considered “less adoptable” by other rescue organizations, as they are often the ones overlooked and truly left behind; and in need of the most help. These animals might be overlooked due to their age, health status, special needs or breed. TCPR works to help as many animals in need find their furever families as we can, especially helping those animals that need help most.

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters complete an adoption application. If approved, we arrange a meet and greet. Cats and small animals can be adopted and go home at the time of the meet and greet after the adoption agreement is complete and adoption fee collected (which is variable based on animal type, etc). For dogs, we complete home visits and then finalize the adoption.
