Facts about Hildi

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 1438
  • Hair: Long

This kitten was discovered by a volunteer trapper/feeder who happened to be checking an area where homeless cats had colonized and were being fed, to see if any trapping was needed there. She spied a small, pale figure in the distance and on the other side of some dilapidated snow fencing. The trapper called out to the kitten, it meowed and came running to her! They had to walk a distance before finding a small opening at the bottom of the fence, through which the kitten squeezed, and then threw herself into the lap of her crouching 'savior.' And the rest, as they say, is history.

Tiny Hildi obviously was very people-oriented, and had either strayed from her home or was abandoned to her fate. But she was scooped up and cared for by her rescuer, while waiting for a spot to open up for her in our care.

Hildi would like to slide down your chimney in Santa's pack...or sooner! She does not have a kitty companion here in foster care, but would love to join your male kitten of similar age and disposition, or even a young adult male who is still playful and would be tolerant of this sweet, charming, beautiful, toy-loving and well-mannered little lady. Hildi got along well with her rescuer's housecats and small dog. And...bonus...Hildi is one of the approximately 20-percent of orange kittens who is female; most orange kitties are male.

Spayed, tested, microchipped, FVRCP vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms, Hildi is ready to expand her horizons and move to her forever home.

Please note:

  • Hildi needs a playmate in her new home

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!
