SAFe is helping Sonny to find a home, but he is not a SAFe Rescue cat. Please contact Deb (206) 234-7739 to meet this wonderful kitty.

Sonny is a beautiful Red Tabby with a Harlequin coloration pattern, and red bowtie-style mustache. He is a healthy, chubby 4 year old, with soulful, innocent eyes. His previous owner had to give him up because she couldn't find housing that would accept pets. Sonny is in dire need of being adopted, because his present foster mom, a frequent rescue foster parent, cannot keep him. We need to make room for more fosters, as the difficult-to- adopt needs keep coming in!

Sonny seems to be a one- or two-person cat, who enjoys-- and needs-- human company and affection, once he gets to know you. But Sonny is challenging at first, because he has problems establishing trust. To be clear, he can be very fearful and even aggressive toward strangers, until he learns to trust. He needs a very cat-savvy adopter who will make the commitment, and take the time to get Sonny to trust you.

If you are a cat person, but need a "watch dog"; Sonny will fill that role admirably. Although very loving toward his guardian, and craving company, he doesn't like strangers and will let them know. There is no doubt he will chase an intruder right out of your house when you're not at home. (A blessing, and a curse, obviously.)

Sonny is a lap sitter, once he is comfortable. He has never lived outdoors, and has no interest in going outside. He is happiest in the company of his guardian-human. He loves having his chin, jaw and throat scratched and stroked. He is also playful, and enjoys interactive play, especially with "Da Bird" toy.

These are some videos of Sonny enjoying his lap time:

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.

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 Mission

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.
