Calico Cat for adoption in Tempe, Arizona - Cali

Cali's Story...
This kitty's dear human father passed away on August 31, 2008, leaving behind several beloved cats who are now in need of a new home. We hope you will consider sharing yours with one or two of them. Below is a description of one kitty, provided by Dick's sister, their temporary guardian. To see them all, please click

Cali had several litters and when I finally got her to the clinic - she was pregnant again, but they spayed her and now she is getting chubby from eating rather than growing babies. She is a lovely shorthair calico. She would get friendly when she was near term to have a litter, but then get skittish when the babies were weaned. She was a great mother - taking babies from other mothers who didn't tend to them enough. I have her mother (tested negative for FeLV) who is a sweetie, and I'm really protective about thinking what kind of home Cali ends up in... She needs someone gentle and patient - I think they would end up with a truly wonderful lady cat.

This pet is a courtesy post. Please contact Carolyn Swartz at, or you may call 480-678-9852.

If you prefer, you may submit an online adoption application which will be forwarded to the guardian.

If you are unable to adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to help us continue to care for cats such as this one. We do not recover any costs associated with spaying and neutering, and often treating illness or injury, and the lifelong feeding of many other cats who are not as lucky as this one.

Thank you for your interest in helping homeless animals.

About Animal Loving Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

ALF is based in Tempe, Arizona. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization who provides TNR (trap, neuter, return), and life-long care of feral and community cats. We serve as an advocate for the ferals, and a link to the rescue community.

Animal Loving Friends believes that we - as a rescue community - will never adopt our way out of overpopulation and euthanasia; the root cause of the problem has to be fixed: unaltered free-roaming animals. The number of births we prevent by spaying and neutering homeless cats directly contributes to adoption achievements, by keeping approximately 1,000 animals every year out of adoption and kill shelters. This means there is space for 1,000 more to be saved by adoption groups. It is commonly stated that every animal you adopt saves two, the one you adopted and one more who can take the available space. Every cat that ALF fixes, saves 9 more from facing danger and the likelihood of dying a sad and lonely death.

On rare occasions, we foster tame animals while they await adoption. All of our adoptable pets are tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered. We strive to find loving, responsible forever homes for pets, so that they will never know hunger or danger again. We do not have a shelter facility and do not accept animals from the public.

Overpopulation of homeless animals leads to the needless suffering and deaths of over 4 million animals each year. Please spay and neuter all your pets and urge your friends and family to do the same. If you are feeding stray cats, please contact a low-cost clinic today to schedule spay and neuter appointments.

If you'd like to help, or donate food or vet services, please email alfrescue @ for information. Donations are tax-deductible.
