Facts about Fairfax

Fairfax is kind of a weirdo. On the one hand, she can be a really sweet and extremely talkative girl who gets so excited for pets that she chirps and flops around and drools with delight while purring like an outboard motor. On the other hand, she is extremely jumpy and skittish - sudden movements, walking towards her when she is on the ground or loud noises will send her under the couch. This isn't a factor of her upbringing - she was rescued from a municipal shelter as a tiny kitten and handled a lot when she was young - this is just how she is hard wired.

This explains why she is still in foster care after all this time. She hides when strangers come to the house, so she can't be home shown. If her foster dad is able to grab her and bring her to a weekend adoption event, she sits in abject terror waiting for it to end, usually burrowing and hiding under the blanket in the first ten minutes and not moving until it's time to go home.

It will take a leap of faith for someone to give Fairfax a home. On the plus side, she is very cat friendly, has been raised in a home with dogs and when she is in an affectionate mood she is almost manic in how sweet she is. But, it's not going to be reasonable to expect her to settle down and become a traditional lazy lap cat. She is who she is, and it is very quirky and rather endearing, but a bit unusual. She is, thankfully, extremely well behaved and in good health.

So, with all of those caveats, if you are open to the possibility of giving her a home, please click here to email her foster dad, or visit our website at and fill out our Contact form and ask for her by name.

If you are unable to send an email to the foster parent through the link included above, please contact us and let us know what kitty you're interested in.  You may also fill out our adoption questionnaire to speed up the screening process.  Be sure to name the cat in the CAT PREFERENCE field at the beginning of the questionnaire. If the above links aren't live, our contact form and questionnaire are available on our website at

About Kitten Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

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!

Our Adoption Process...

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.
