Facts about Lani (Heaven in HI)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Spotted Tabby/Leopard Spotted
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Lani is a beautiful, wonderfully soft orange and white cat that was born in Scottsdale Arizona. She was companion to a very old lady in California until the woman passed. She used to listen to Hawaiian music most of the time loves iit.
Now, Lani is back in Arizona from California and has been in foster care for some time. She loves watching birds and lounging in comfort watching others do all the work. She used to be obese, but once allowed on the patio by the pool, has trimmed nicely ... she is a little arthritic as a result of all those years of obesity. We have started her on Cosequin but aren't sure it is making a difference. (Pictures are original.)
She has gloriously soft fur and is a healthy weight now.
Regular guests in her foster home have a German shepherd and another dog. She treats them just as she treats the other cats. She hisses at them if they come too close, but otherwise ignores them. We haven't seen her with children, but she "talks" with her foster mother and never shows aggression.
She can be seen in her foster home by appointment. (Other cats can be seen there, too.)

About SOS Kitty

About Our Rescue Group...

I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so chose to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.

I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Two foster homes in north Scottsdale have offered to show SOS Kitty cats and kittens for potential adoption by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $60 and $100 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements.
We accept other donations, but are not yet an independent 501c3. Our veterinary costs at this time average $110/female and $92/male kitten. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+.
We love PetSmart or PetCo gift cards!
We feed ProPlan Chicken & Rice Adult to almost all cats (always available) and Fancy Feast wet food twice a day with some Trader Joe's Tuna for Cats. Wet food is as a check on health issues as well as added moisture in diet and treat.
Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered.
We do not adopt out unaltered animals.
As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions.
We adopt to indoor-only situations.
We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat.
We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first. Similar police issues.
We work to assist Safe Haven for Animals, Inc., in placing their cats and showing at sites they cannot cover.
Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes.
We usually take cats/kittens to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where we can show cats/kittens by appointment, We show cats & kittens every Thursday at Trendy Pet & Rescue in Scottsdale Fashion Squar. Wwe show cats at Choice (Shea & 71st Streets) two Sundays a month and PetCo (Fountain Hills) one Saturday a month.
We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee. Ditto kittens but usually no refund. We want each of our rescues to be in permanent, loving homes.
