Edgar is a kitty that loves his dog, but didn't get along with the other kitty in his previous home. He is shy at the adoption center and may grumble to let you know he is uncomfortable. We love him and his old man self. He loves catnip and his cardboard scratcher. He is in a foster home. Please email to meet him. DOB ~10/1/2007.

This is how his foster mom describes him: Edgar is very inquisitive and adventurous, but tends to shy away from humans. He tends to find the most creative hiding spots, and there's been multiple occasions where we've found him on top of the cupboards and behind pillows. His love for seeking out new hiding places has also led him to climb our hanging coats and tear down our stick-up coat hooks :) When burying his poop in the litter box, he has a tendency to dig extensively and shovel out a bunch of the litter onto the floor. It's pretty funny. Edgar loves catnip and sleeping! He will roll around in catnip with obvious enjoyment.

His main challenge is, as I mentioned, the fact that he does not feel particularly comfortable around humans. I'm not sure if this a result of past experiences he has had, but he will not let us pet him (at this point anyway). He has a tendency to growl and hiss when we approach him, but has never batted at us. He spends most of the time in his kennel when we are in the room.When you choose to adopt, you are making it possible to save another life!

These are the answers to some frequently asked questions. If your question is not covered here, we will get back to you within a few days. We are a small organization, and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to respond to each inquiry.

Are you wondering if the kitty you saw online is still available? We update our list every day—the cats and kittens shown online are available as of our Adoption Center's opening time on the day you did your search.

Do I have to make an appointment to see our kitties? You do not—you can just stop by during our adoption hours. We are open noon to 7 pm, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, 2pm-5pm on Mondays. We are not open for adoptions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Check our website for holiday hours. Most of our cats are at the Adoption Center. Some cats are in foster care. If so, that is noted in their profile.

In 2017, we will be closed for adoptions January 13, 14 15 and 16. We will re-open January 20.

Where we are located? 14717 Aurora Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133.

Do you have an online adoption application? Our rescue does not have an adoption application that needs to be filled out in advance. Everything is done at the time of your visit to the Adoption Center or to the foster home.

Do I need to buy a carrier or food before adopting? No. We sell carriers, food, litter, litterboxes, toys and anything else you may you need for the kitties in our retail section of the rescue. 100% of the profits go back into the rescue to support our mission.

What are your adoption fees and what is included?

· Adult cat 7 years and older: $50

· Cat or kitten* under 7 years: $125

· Two cats or kittens under 7 years: $200

Note that kittens under 6 months of age are adopted in pairs. They need another young feline to continue their socialization and growth into a well adjusted adult cat.

Our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, FVRCP vaccinated, and come with a free post-adoption vet exam.

Thanks again!

Our Adoption Process...

Adopters must agree to keep the pet for the duration of the cat's life--up to 20 years. We require an indoor-only situation. Kittens 6 months old or younger are adopted out in pairs/multiples unless another suitable kitten or young cat is already in the home. Research has shown that this is healthiest for you and your kitten and is the policy of many no-kill shelters.
