Hi! My name is Tryne (pronounced Trinn). It's Dutch, and it means "pure".

My Mommy was found in the parking lot of a hotel, next to a gas station in Long Beach. Our foster Mommy didn't know she was pregnant with me!

I'm a very, very sweet girl. Some people think I have sad eyes, but that's not who I am! I'm really very happy! I love it when foster Mommy bounces the a foam ball because I can jump the highest in the air of anyone! I also do something very special not too many other kitties do. When I want your attention, I stand back on my hind legs, put my front paws together and “scoop the air”. Trust me, you'll have to see it to believe it, I'm adorable! I have a similar personality to my sister Willow (we look alike too). Even though we're not big on being held (it's ok for a little bit), foster Mommy still calls us love bugs!

*Unless Otherwise Noted: Special Need are Dietary. New pet parents will be requested (on contract) to feed the kittens/cats foods suggested from a provided list of options.

About Making Biscuits Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome to Making Biscuits. I started humanely trapping local cats in June 2009. Two of them were pregnant, which I didn't realize. And I was also given a box of 4-day old kittens whose mother hadn't come back for them. Needless to say, I've been deeply launched into my first experience with foster mommyhood. I just want what's best for these guys—good homes, good food and clean water, veterinary care and lots of love and attention. As with all pets, they deserve it. These cats and kittens live with me in my home and in foster homes until they're adopted, however long that takes. They live in very clean environments, they have toys and cat trees, a view of the world outside and they get a lot of love and attention (I've coddled each and every one of them). Please spay and neuter your pets, and thanks for checking us out.

As of June 2010, Making Biscuits is a registered 501c3 organization.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are doing introductions by appointment. It's really easy-you tell me who you'd like to or a handful is ok, and we'll meet at Petco Unleashed. We are showing cats at specific adoption events, for example, on National Adoption Weekend.

Our Adoption Process...

NOTE: June 2012: Although I would like to be able to help every kitty out there, I have to set limits since I do this out of my home. I'm sorry. I am not currently accepting cats or kittens. However, I'd like to help if I can, so you may email me for a list of possible other places to check with: Please do try to place them instead of taking them to SEACCA or the LB Animal Shelter. As far as I know, they have a 72-hour hold now instead of 6 days due to shelter budget cuts. No matter the age of the animal, the euthanasia rate is very, very high. Thank you and I truly hope your babies find a safe place.

How the Adoption Process Works
If you see a kitty you're interested in meeting, please email me to be sure they're still available. We'll converse through email and I'll send you an application which you can fill out and return electronically, or print and bring with you when you meet the cat(s). We set a time to meet and interact with kitty(s). The next step would be a home visit. If it's a good match for you and kitty, we make another appt. for delivery of your new family member! Everyone gets an Adoption Kit loaded with great (and important info.), 30 days free pet health insurance, food for a couple days and a BIG bag of toys and treats!!

Before you go through the lengthy process of filling out the application, there are a few things you should know. If you do not already have a cat/kitten/dog, unless otherwise noted, I prefer my cats/kittens be adopted in pairs. They do better emotionally. After all, cats live in colonies in the outdoors. They groom each other, play, eat and sleep together. Especially if you're gone all day at work. These guys have been raised on premium (that doesn't necessarily mean high-priced) cat food. You will be required (on contract) to feed your new family member(s) one of the foods suggested from the long list provided. I have done a ton of research on manufactured pet foods. More people need to be made aware of the ingredients and they're meanings, and I'm doing my best to make sure that happens and keep these babies from disease and illness in the long run. Proper diet/nutrition is a preventative. Most pet parents only realize that after its too late. You should know too, that I do make home visits to check in on the kitties. It's very important to me that they be adjusting to their new home environment.

If at any time you are unable to continue to care for your pet due to unforeseen circumstances, you MUST call me. Either I will take them back, or we'll discuss making arrangements for someone else to foster them until they can be properly rehomed. I feel that I am responsible for each and every one of my kitties for the rest of their lives. That could mean 15 years from now I'll still figure out a way to help you and them. If they need a new home, I can make sure they find a new one safely through the adoption process. It's important that I always keep track of where they are and in who's care. I am always available for questions or concerns on any subject regarding my adopted kitties whether it be food choices, vet choices, kitty goes missing (there are things to be done immediately and I can provide you with all that information as well as helping with a search), health questions, where to find boarding or petsitter, etc. No matter the circumstances: for example if you have a balcony and kitty has fallen off and disappeared, CALL ME. I not only want to know what's going on, I am more than willing to help however I can. For this reason, I do kindly ask that adopters occasionally send a quick email or post a pic now and then to stay in touch. I sleep better that way because it helps me know I've made the right choice in you, for them!

I reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. Please be aware that I'm looking for people who meet certain criteria only for the kittens/cats well-being. I truly just want what's best for them, as I've worked hard to make sure they are healthy, loved, mentally stimulated, clean and well-fed up to the point of their adoption. They deserve the best. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Adoption is $120. Two cats/kittens $180. This is all non-profit. The cost of adoption comes nowhere near the amount it cost to raise these babies. It includes spaying/neutering, defleaing, deworming, testing for FIV/Felv, microchipping and vaccinations.
