Cheeto's Info...

I am up to date with shots and good with cats.

Cheeto's Story...
Cheeto had to be different from everyone else in his litter and be the only short hair kitten. Sure his siblings may have the "little lion" look, but he gets to be the reigning tiger! He is an outgoing kitten who enjoys interacting with people and other cats. He is a bold guy who shows signs of being the leader of the pack. But he's also a softie on the inside who will jump into your lap and purr happily as you pet him. He even accepts kisses right on his nose!


CHeeto has three siblings who are also available for adoption (Colby, Fontina, and Cheddar). For these orange tabby kittens, cuteness is an extreme sport, and they will steal your heart in record time. Orange tabbies are known for their affectionate, intelligent and playful personalities, and these kittens more than live up to that reputation.


Because they enjoy the company of each other so much, we prefer that they be adopted as pairs. However, we will consider homes interested in adopting one of them if they already have a young and playful cat who wants a buddy.


These kittens were born in early April 2009 and have started their shots and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. They are litter box trained and respectful of the adult cats in their foster home...although they cannot resist those big cat tails sometimes!


If you are interested in meeting these loving and way-too-cute orange tabby kittens, phone our cat coordinator at 503-284-8768 evenings and weekends or fill out our "I'm interested" form. ARCF’s mission is to rescue homeless animals so we do not take in owner released pets.



Please note, we adopt out to the following counties: Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Clark.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheeto, a Portland Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Portland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
