Max- I'm a beautiful, mellow tuxedo boy. I purr like crazy and love to play with toy mice and my brother, Ziggy. I’m also quite the snuggler and will give you my belly at every chance I get. I'm listed as a 'Special Needs' kitten due to I tested positive for FIV; there is a slight chance I will 'grow out of it' as my brother had also initially tested positive but then tested negative when last tested on January 29, 2012. Other than that, I am healthy, playful and very hopeful to find a forever home. Even if I do have FIV, with appropriate care I can live a long and healthy life. When I say 'appropriate care' I don't mean anything fancy, just care that we would hope for for any kitten or cat -- and that is to be kept indoors so we're not exposed to dangers of the outdoors, and good nutrition (nothing special-- just good quality kitten/cat food)! If you’d like to meet me, please contact my foster mom by e-mail. I’m neutered, have my basic shots and am litter box trained, of course! My brother Ziggy was adopted on Feb 1st 2012, I sure hope my new family comes along soon, it's lonely without him!
If you'd like more information about Feline Aids (FIV), here are a couple of good resources http://www.v63.net/catsanctuary/fiv_kittens.html and http://www.cathealth.com/FIV.htm
My adoption fee is only $40! Please email for more information!

Rescue Group Info...
Kindness For Cats Inc is a small nonprofit organization that participates in the Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) foster program providing temporary nurturing homes for at least a few of the countless kittens and cats abandoned there. We attempt to find permanent loving homes for these kittens and cats so that they will not have to return to OCAS when their time in foster care is done.
We also strongly promote spay/neuter to help fight the battle against unwanted felines, and attempt to inform the general public regarding the daunting problem of pet overpopulation. For low cost spay/neuter options (cat neuter for only $10, spay for $20) please visit the OCAS website for more information www.orangecountyfl.net/cms/DEPT/CEsrvcs/animal/surgerydisclaim.htm
*** Please note we do not take in any animals outside of OCAS due to limited resources and space. We are involved with OCAS as we feel that is where the greatest need is given that in one year alone over 24,000 unwanted pets and/or strays were brought to OCAS and only 6560 of those were adopted or reclaimed. The remaining 17,732 were either euthanized or died at the shelter (statistics - www.orangecountyfl.net/cms/DEPT/CEsrvcs/animal/stats.htm).
If you are looking for assistance with feral cats/kittens we suggest that you contact Care Feline Rescue www.carefelinerescue.org/ which is a nonprofit that works only with feral and stray cats. ***

You may visit the kittens and cats at their foster parent's homes; appointments are flexible and set at a time convenient to the potential adoptor and the foster parent. For more information or to set up an appointment, please email the foster parent listed in the description of the kitten or cat that you are interested in.
Most of the animals in our care are foster animals from Orange County Animal Services (OCAS), in other words the property of OCAS. Anyone wanting to adopt one of these animals completes an application form and must submit the form in person at OCAS directly. The adoption fee for OCAS kittens & cats is $40, one of the requirements is verification of pet policy if the potential adoptor rents.
The adoption fee of $40 for the OCAS kittens & cats includes spay/neuter, initial vaccinations including rabies, de-worming, de-fleaing, testing for feline leukemia, and an AVID chip (ID for lost pets). The OCAS foster kittens & cats featured on this website are currently staying with their foster parent. Please contact the foster parent listed in the kitten/cat's description for more information on the kitten/cat that you are interested in. We may also have a limited number of kittens & cats that we are showing on our website as courtesy listing; their adoption fees may vary due to expenses incurred in preparing the kittens/cats for adoption.
