Meow! My name is TESS
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Sweet-natured and affectionate is an understatement when describing this beautiful and soft tortie girl. She is the ultimate in feline companionship. Found as a dumped or lost pet in the Glenview neighborhood in Oakland without a collar or microchip, a search for her past guardians was unsuccessful. Tess is calm, quiet, and wants nothing more than to be your favorite lap cat and cuddle buddy. She adores petting! She would be an ideal companion for an all adult household or a senior citizen. She may be fine with calm children over age 5. She may also do okay with a cat-friendly calm dog. We are estimating her age as 3 years+ (estimated date of birth is mid-2008 or earlier). Bio# 3050 MB

Rescue Group Info...
ICRA is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the suffering of the abandoned cat population of Alameda and Oakland, and to educate people to their plight. We provide foster homes for our rescues until we can place them into loving homes through our adoption program. On a limited basis, we humanely trap feral cats in order to spay/neuter them before releasing them back to their colonies. Our goal is to expand our program for maintaining cat colonies in our communities. To make this expansion possible, we need more volunteers.
Adoptions are hosted at PETCO, 2310 S. Shore Center, in Alameda's South Shore Center, every Saturday from —
11 am to 4:00 pm
No cats show on major holiday weekends.
Enter the store, head to the right past the registers and straight ahead to the far wall of the store.There is a door there where you will find our cats.

Potential adopters pick out a cat or kitten and fill out an application.
There will be a short interview with one of our volunteers. Adoptions do not happen the same day. We will arrange a time to visit your home and the foster parents and a volunteer will meet there. Our adoption fee structure is:
- Cats and kittens (six months to 8 years): $100
- Cats (over 8 years): $75
- Two cats: Full amount for the higher amount cat, half amount for the lower amount cat
For example: a kitten and an adult would be: $100 + $50 = $150
Prior to Adoption all cats and kittens are:
- Spayed or neutered
- FeLV and FIV tested
- FVRCP vaccinated
- De-wormed, and
- Treated for fleas with Advantage or Frontline
