Facts about Oyster-Gentle/Timid

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Oyster is a 1 yr old old tabby male with the cutest round face. He's takes awhile to get comfortable in new situations and can be initially timid. But , place him on your lap and he becomes purry and his sweet temperament is revealed. He is easy going and not super demanding. He will rub circles around your legs and enjoys petting/brushing once he gets comfortable. He's been waiting far too long to find his forever home...not only are brown tabbies often overlooked as it's such a common coat color/pattern but most adopters seek a cat who is initially more outgoing. Would you be willing to give this Oyster a chance to come out of his shell? He loves his other foster kitty friends both male and female alike. Oyster is seeking a quieter home where he'll have another young cat companion to enjoy playtime with and an adopter who will be patient as he becomes more confident. He is available for our trial "foster to adopt" program. Updated 4 /5/17

Adoption includes free 1st wellness exam at any Caring Hands Animal Hospital.

About Home Alone Feline Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, private feline-only rescue group dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of homeless cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter and rely on a group of dedicated foster homes to care for our felines until a "fur-ever" home can be found. We actively promote the importance of spaying and neutering and best practices in companion animal care. The majority of our cats/kittens come from high-kill shelters. We do not receive any government funding and rely on private contributions, 100% of which go to provide medical care, food and supplies.

You can support our rescue by shopping your favorite online stores through It's FREE and easy to use. Simply click on the link below which will connect you directly to our shelter's shopping page. Then shop like you always do at your favorite stores, including Amazon, Ebay, Petsmart & Home Depot. Whatever you buy, a portion of EVERY purchase will come to us in a cash donation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in private foster homes; therefore, we require an application be completed before setting up appointments to meet them; an application can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed upon request. Adopters must be within a reasonable driving distance to No. VA ( 60 minutes); we do not ship/transport our animals. We participate in public adoption event held in various locations in the Wash.DC/No. VA areal most Sundays in conjunction with other rescuers. Please e-mail us for specifics.

Our Adoption Process...

We strive to make the "purr-fect" match through our interview and application process. Adoption fees, which range from $100-$135, include all medical work (FELV/FIV testing, shots; spay/neuter, etc); home visits are required prior to final placement. The majority of our kittens are only available for adoption in pairs or as a companion to another young cat/kitten already in the home. Sorry, but we do not adopt very young kittens to families with children under 6 yrs old due to safety concerns for both child and kitten. Adopters also receive a certificate for a free comprehensive wellness exam at any Caring Hands Animal Hospital.
