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. DOB ~02/26/2013.
Awright, listen up, ya muggs! I'm tough, see? Tough! Nobody messes with Big Sonny!
Oh, who am I kidding? I'm scared of strangers, that's all. Just a Cowardly Lion. Sit with me for a while, and look into my baby-innocent eyes. You'll see someone yearning for a forever home and a connection with someone to love who'll love me back. I think you'll agree that these aren't the eyes of a tough guy. They're the eyes of a secret softie.
Sad to say, my first human couldn't take me to her new home and I have been thrown off course. Sure, I might hiss and growl when strangers first meet me--but only if you take me by surprise. My foster mom will help that go well. I make myself seem a little scary at first, but what I really want is to love and be loved. Is that so wrong?! Once we're friends, we'll be friends forever.
Are you the one who can make me feel I'm finally home safe? Do you have the patience and the understanding? I'll reward you, I promise! I'm a "project," sure, but once I know you and I'm not afraid of you, I'll be your lap cat – just try and stop me! And we can play with feathers and string toys, and when you wake up in the morning I'll be there for you to meet the new day together. And we'll have a special bond, because it wasn't easy and it took time to make.
(1) I need to go to a house with no children because I don't respond well to mayhem.
(2) I need to be your only pet --I'm just as scared of other cats and dogs as people.
(3) I'm too much of a "tripping hazard" to be safely adopted by a very elderly person. Like a "working cat,'' I am a people-herder, and love to guide your feet in the direction I'm hoping for.
(4) I have to be an indoor cat, too. On the other hand, you can count on me to chase and frighten away anyone who intrudes rudely on your personal space. Just like a loyal watchdog, I will be your protector, in return for your love.
Another matter that cannot go unsaid: let's just say I could lose a few pounds. But please don't judge me by that first impression! When we're a family, you can help me work some of that off.
Won't someone please tie their life to mine? Earn my trust and we'll be each other's best pal through whatever may come. You'll never find a better friend than me, if you'll just give me the chance.

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. www.SeattleAreaFelineRescue.org/adoptable-pets/
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. http://www.seattleareafelinerescue.org/single-kitten-syndrome/
Our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, FVRCP vaccinated, and come with a free post-adoption vet exam.
