Facts about Kota

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8357109
  • Hair: Short

Kota is a very sweet and misunderstood kitty. She loves other cats and kittens and to have her head and chin scratched but is going to need a very special and understanding forever home. Kota was found as a feral kitten about 4-5 months old. She did not know the love of a home and how kind people can be early in life. She is in a foster home where she has slowly learned the love of a person and the comforts of a home. She takes longer to adapt to new environments and to learn new people but once she does you can see her loving and affectionate personality. Kota absolutely loves kittens and other cats. She will groom, play with, and acts as the fun "momma kitty". She does not have a mean bone in her little body. Kota would blossom best in a quiet home environment without small children that might frighten her. She has been around dogs but keeps a distance and is cautious around them. Any new cat or kitten she is introduces to she is eager to become friends with. She is slow to trust new people but once she does she meows and them and will come cautiously to them for head and chin scratches. Kota has come a long way but still needs more work and the understanding to completely blossom to her full potential. 

This kitty is currently in foster care waiting for a forever home.

What is foster care?

As a rescue organization, we think that it is so important to insure that all of our cats and kittens are both socialize and as comfortable as possible. Shelter environments are stressful but some cats do not fair as well as others. When possible, we try to utilize our foster providers to ease the transition of loosing their home. In some cases, some of our cats and kittens are extremely stressed out and need to be moved out of the shelter and into a temporary foster home. This is not their permanent home and is hopefully temporary until their forever home is found. Please email us to setup a meeting to have a cat or kitten that is currently in foster care brought to the shelter to be seen. At times we may set the meeting for you to meet the cat or kitten directly in the foster environment if he/she is she and is more comfortable in the foster home. This will make for a more positive experience when trying to spend time with the cat or kitten that you are interested in meeting.

Thank you for choosing to adopt! 

As a no-kill rescue, we can only bring in and save more cats and kittens in need as our current cats and kittens are adopted. This is why we say that when you adopt one cat or kitten you are actually saving TWO lives! One is the current cat or kitten that you are adopting, the second is the one that we now have room to save and place into our safe shelter.


About The Cat Corner:

The Cat Corner was founded by a very passionate and devoted animal lover, Martha Nicholson. After seeing an overwhelming number of cats homeless and being euthanized, Martha was determined to open a no-kill shelter to make a difference in these cats' lives. In 1981, Martha purchased an old barber shop at her own expense and opened The Cat Corner in Hampton, Virginia. The Cat Corner is a completely volunteer operated organization and is solely funded by donations from the community. Because of the help of our caring and hardworking volunteers and the support and donations from our community, we have been able to uphold Martha's dream and make a difference in countless lives...and doing so for over three decades! 

The Cat Corner, Inc. is a nonprofit, all-volunteer-run organization that does not receive any federal, state or local government funding. We depend solely from the generosity of caring individuals from our community to continue to do our work.
