Domestic Shorthair Cat for adoption in Palo Alto, California - Eclipse

Eclipse's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Eclipse's Story...

Eclipse is a big, handsome, super-sleek and shiny black cat, with a distinctive white locket (spot) on his chest. He was found wandering in the Peninsula hills, no safe place for a domestic pussycat! Eclipse has adapted well to indoor life, so it is even more surprising that he survived alone in the hills. 

Eclipse is an affectionate boy who likes attention, which makes it even sadder that someone may have dumped him. For a large cat, Eclipse is surprisingly adept at curling up in a lap. He loves to be petted, especially loves head and neck rubs, and will lean into those massages for more, more, more, please!

A vigorous, playful, muscular boy, a vet said that Eclipse could be as old as 4 years, but he plays like a 2-year-old cat, barely into adulthood. Though he has adapted beautifully to life indoors, he might enjoy some supervised access to the outside under safe conditions (a walled garden or patio, enclosed cat run, low-traffic street, etc.). And since he survived in the hills by himself, we expect he could keep your yard clear of rodents, as well. 

Eclipse is healthy, with a good appetite! He tested negative for FIV/FeLV, and like all of our cats, Eclipse is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

THE FINE PRINT – Adoptions limited to SF Mid-Peninsula locations. Exceptions possible.

Please note:

  • Eclipse needs a home with no young children
  • Indoor/outdoor when of age and under approved conditions

About Community Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Community Cat Rescue was formed to improve the lives of homeless cats through adoption, promotion of spaying/neutering, TNR and colony management and educational outreach to the public. We are a group of experienced rescue and TNR volunteers who have developed a network of foster homes for rescued street cats, and a regular program of outreach for adoption and education at local farmers markets, public events and at pet stores and shopping areas. We host a minimum of 3 outreach events per month, and often as many as 6 events. In addition to adopting out cats as family pets, we also have an active TNR program, including relocation of feral cats as "working cats" to appropriate homes if they are not safe in their original territory.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sundays 9:30 AM to 1 PM at the California Avenue Farmers Market, Palo Alto (see website for dates)

Saturdays, 8:00 AM to Noon, at the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market on Gilman Street (see website for dates)

Local Pet Stores (see website for dates and times)

Our Adoption Process...

Potential Adopters fill out an adoption profile and application to help ensure that the cat or kittens they are applying for is/are a good match for their household. This is followed by an interview (phone or in person). All of our cats are in foster homes, so we know their personalities very well and can help you make a great match for everyone in your home.

If there are other pets in the household we provide assistance in introducing the new cat(s). We have lots of experience with multiple cat households, and we will work with you to make sure that everyone gets along and is happy. Cats or kittens can be returned to us within two weeks if they do not fit into your family or household.

Our contract specifically prohibits declawing and requires that if the new owner find that scratching is a problem, they return the cat to us rather than declaw.

Our adoption fees are $75 for a kitten (or $125 for two kittens)and $55 for adult cats, all of whom are spay/neutered, micro-chipped, immunized, treated for fleas and worms and given any required veterinary treatment before adoption. The value of these treatments is several times the adoption fee!

Since we are a volunteer group, we ask that in lieu of adoption fees, adopters donate to the Palo Alto Humane Society's Animal Rescue Fund, which helps rescuers in the local area.
