Facts about Alien

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Alien is a male orange tabby.
He is a super loving, snugly cat. He has a very sweet disposition and is still a very playful and social kitten. He gets along with kids and other cats.
When we rescued him at about 6 weeks old he had an injured right paw and a healing wound on his back. Both injuries have healed but an infection in his wrist dissolved all of his wrist bones. He is infection free and gets around very well. He is able to climb and jump and play but is a little limited in his abilities. He should be an indoor cat. The Vet said that he should be able to get along just fine and live a full life. There is a slight possibility that the paw would need to be amputated if complications occur as he grows but he thinks this is unlikely. For now he barely limps, keeps up with all the other kittens and cats in our household and is an awesome companion. He needs to suckle and knead when he's sleepy so we give him a toy or a soft blanket to snuggle so he doesn't end up suckling on us. He is our favorite extra terrestrial!

About Animal Shelter Relief

About Our Rescue Group...

ASR is an ALL-VOLUNTEER, 501 (c)(3) non-profit, charitable animal rescue. We were founded by three former open-door animal shelter employees in 2008 because at the time, there were no rescue groups in the Santa Cruz area devoted to rescuing the types of animals that our experience taught us needed extra help to be adopted. We are proud to partner with our local animal shelters to relieve overcrowding and reduce euthanasia. One of ASR's achievements is that we rescue hundreds of bottle baby kittens every kitten season. We also rescue special needs animals, check out some of their stories on our website!
ASR does not have a brick and mortar animal shelter, therefore all of our animals are in loving foster homes, until they find they are adopted.
Because no one at ASR receives a salary, this is truly a labor of love for our team of volunteers.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a companion animal from ASR please submit an application via our website. Once the application has been approved, you will be conatcted (usually the same day), and we can set up a meeting in a foster home or plan for you to visit one of our weekend adoption fairs. The adoption fee (which are a tax deductible donation) varies based on species, age, and breed, please contact us for more info.

All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, current on age appropriate vaccinations, current on testing (Feline Leukemia and Feline HIV for cats, and Parvo for dogs), and current on flea and worm treatment. All dogs are licensed, and adopters receive a free veterinary exam with our veterinarian.
