Meow! My name is Jeckyl
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||White (Mostly)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Meow! I'm Jeckyl! I have a twin brother named Hyde. My mother is here in the shelter too, named Snowball. We were rescued from a trapping project at Reid-Hillview airport. The people said that they could pet us, but we've been a bit shyer since we've been in the shelter. Even though Hyde and I are nearly identical, we are different in personality. I'm a bit less outgoing - I tend to mostly hang out in one of the condos. Although I'm still nervous, I DO love to be petted, and I purr up a storm. I won't run and greet a stranger - yet - but I certainly run out to see my favorite volunteers. On the other hand, Hyde is very outgoing, and comes around begging for turkey all the time! He watches the volunteers come in, and is always running around. However, he is more shy about being touched, and still won't let anyone pet him, despite coming around and begging and watching.
Our mother Snowball (who looks like us but with a much fainter mark on the head) is still very shy....
We'd really like to meet you, if you are interested in helping us become more friendly! The volunteers have seen a tremendous change in us in the last month, and think we'll become much friendlier kitties with patience (I'm already nearly there). So, why don't you arrange to meet us and see what you think?

Help this Shelter by making a donation.
Our mission at Town Cats is to maintain a No-Kill Adoption Center/Shelter and foster home network for friendly homeless cats and kittens awaiting adoption; to bring attention to and alleviate the suffering of homeless and feral cats in Santa Clara county; to educate the public about the pet overpopulation problem and provide the public with the tools to become part of the solution to assist homeless and feral cats through Trap, Neuter and Return programs; and to find permanent, loving, and safe homes for all the homeless house cats and kittens in our care. See our video explaining the shelter (over 7 minutes long) below!
You can meet kitties at our shelter by appointment. We have some cats displayed in various stores throughout the bay area - we rotate them in and out, so stop by and see who's in the store this week! Our pet fairs change. For the latest up to date information, please check here at: http://www.towncats.org/datesl!
All adoptions of our cats and kittens are subject to approval by Town Cats. If approved, you can take home your new feline friend the same day provided the cat or kitten is ready to go! Check http://www.towncats.org/adopt for our most current adoption fees. Each cat will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for leukemia/FIV (every adult and one kitten per litter plus mom and/or dad if we have them), dewormed, defleaed, microchipped, plus routine medical check up done prior to delivery. Each adoption also includes 30 days free pet insurance and 20% discount coupon for Pet Food Express stores (check at time of adoption, sometimes we have alternate coupon books available).
Outdoor/Feral Cats adoptions require a site inspection and adoption fees vary depending on how many cats you adopt, a minimum $25 donation per cat is recommended as each cat will have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and defleaed (and microchipped, if possible). We deliver feral cats to you and will provide the enclosure/cage required for minimum 30 day imprinting.
Ask us about senior cats for senior people rates too, which are negotiated based on the cat and the person's unique situation!
