Sky was found in a car's wheelwell May 13, 2012, in the Sky Harbor Airport parking garage. He is solid black (maybe a couple of white chest hairs) and quiet but gets around the house very well. he is loving and sweet-natured but won't push his attention on you. We don't know if it's because he screamed for help so long or was born that way, but he has a very raspy, odd voice. He only meows for food or attention, just sounds very different than other cats.
Adult cats go through about three weeks of confusion when they move, even when with the same people from birth. For that reason, SOS Kitty offers a full return/refund policy for the first month. During that 3-4 weeks they need patience and reassurance, since every time they go to sleep, it's like "Groundhog Day" they feel lost again. Once you get past that time, their natural GPS system resets to the new home and they usually make huge strides in socializing to their new home and family. Right now, Sky is an orphan. He has no idea what a wonderful life is possible outside an orphanage. He thinks this is as good as it gets!
Can you show him he's wrong?
Yes, we will update photographs. The last one is pretty old (smile).

About SOS Kitty

About Our Rescue Group...

I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so chose to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.

I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

private, no tax ID Love PetSmart, et al, gift cards! Saguaro Vet Clinic donation (McDonald).

Come Meet Our Pets...

By appointment. Working on adoption events.

Trendy Pet & Rescue @ Scottsdale Fashion Square Thursdays 11-3; Choice Pet Market all but first Sundays 11-3.

Two foster homes in north Scottsdale have offered to show SOS Kitty cats and kittens for potential adoption by appointment. Doggy day care fosters kittens and can sometimes host meetings.

Our Adoption Process...

Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $75 and $120 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements.
We accept other donations, but are not yet an independent 501c3. Our minimum veterinary costs at this time are over $100.kitten. Adults minimum $74. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+.
We love PetSmart or PetCo gift cards!
We feed ProPlan Chicken & Rice Adult to almost all cats (always available) and Fancy Feast wet food twice a day
with some Trader Joe's Tuna for Cats. Wet food is as a check on health issues as well as added moisture in diet and treat.
Kittens start with Royal Canon Babycat until ProPlan Kitten kibbles.
Senior cats get Science Diet's 11+ dry food.
Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered.
We do not adopt out unaltered animals.
We do foster/adopt with kittens when experienced adopters want younger kittens and are willing to work with us to complete their two distemper vaccinations and spay or neuter. We do not neuter before three months old, or spay/neuter before 3 pounds unless unusually small and healthy.
As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more adult cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions.
We adopt to indoor-only situations.
We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat.
We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first. Similar police issues.
We work to assist Safe Haven for Animals, Inc., in placing their cats and showing at sites they cannot cover.
Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes.
We usually take cats/kittens to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where we can show cats/kittens by appointment, We show cats & kittens every Thursday at Trendy Pet & Rescue in Scottsdale Fashion Square. We show cats at Choice (Shea & 71st Streets) three Sundays a month with first Sunday of month off.
We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee. Ditto kittens but usually no refund. We want each of our rescues to be in permanent, loving homes.
