I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Cricket was rescued when she was just one day old from the Orange County shelter. She was dropped there with her three surviving siblings; her mom, a Rottweiler, rejected the litter and the owner wouldn't take care of them. Fortunately she was rescued quickly and bottle raised, and has been around dogs, cats and people her entire life!
Cricket is an EXTREMELY EXUBERANT girl. I wrote that in all caps because I can't overstate how high energy she is. This is a dog that wants to go for walks, runs, hikes and whatever else you can do to keep her moving. She is super playful and loves all sorts of toys, balls and the usual dog things. She's currently living in a home with four other dogs and is always trying to play with them. And if the dogs aren't responding, she'll try to play with the resident cats. Which, from the cats' perspective, is not always welcome - but she certainly means no harm.
Cricket does occasionally enjoy some down time, and that's when she gets very cuddly and kissy, with people, cats or dogs. She's crate trained and perfectly housebroken. Sure, she does occasional dumb dog things, but that goes with the territory.
Cricket is not a dog that should be left to her own devices. Perhaps when she's older and more stable that would be possible, but with her age and exuberance she needs to have strict boundaries set and kept for her. She definitely responds very well to training, but as experienced dog people know, training is a continuing endeavor, and Cricket certainly needs to be in a home where this is an ongoing thing.
One very endearing thing about Cricket is her ears. The bases are firm but the tips are very floppy. Sometimes they are both flopped forward, sometimes back, and sometimes one goes each way. Everyone who meets her sees those ears and giggles, and they really are something to behold. It's like they have personalities of their own.

Rescue Group Info...
Welcome! Kitten Rescue is a non-profit organization located in the Los Angeles area, devoted to rescuing needy kittens and cats from shelter euthanasia and abandonment. We provide our rescued cats with all necessary medical attention and ongoing treatment to establish their health, while caring for them in foster homes, where they're given abundant love and affection. The kitties like that part the best!
Kitten Rescue presents cats for adoption regularly at locations all over Los Angeles County, in addition to conducting private adoptions during the week, with the goal of finding loving, committed homes for every animal we take in. We also offer education and help to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
All our kitties live in foster homes and can be visited at one of our four weekly adoption events! Check our website for our adoption events and locations near you!
When you choose to adopt one of Kitten Rescue's animals, required adoption donations begin at $120.00. All of our cats have been spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped prior to adoption.
Many of our cats have also received additional vet care as needed, such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, treatment for ear, eye, upper respiratory infections, and viruses. Additional veterinary care beyond these services, for the (hopefully) long life of your cat, will be your responsibility.
Please be aware that there is a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Kitten Rescue. To help ensure that we place our cats in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem necessary. A home delivery or visit is a required part of the adoption procedure.
If for any reason you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation. After that, be it months or years later and we're still in existence, if you need to give up the animal, please bring it to us. We won't be able to refund the adoption fee, but we will place it in a new home.
Kitten Rescue cats are so for life...we're always here to answer questions and help solve problems.
