Although Linus looks like an adult he is still very much a kitten, curious and learning about everything he can stick his nose into.  He has also stopped some of his habits like eating cardboard and eating other cat's vomit. 

Linus is energetic and needs to go to a home with other cats.  He loves to wrestle with other cats and hunt other cats and play with laser lights and balls and anything on the floor.  He also plays with humans, and he's been very gentle, usually keeping his nails in while he bats at you or grabs at you. 

Linus is Mr. Personality also.  He knows a few words like 'no.'  He's very good at no , probably because I say it a lot to him (he's still young).  He will stop when you say no.  He also knows his name very well.  I grew up with dogs so I tend to treat him like a dog and play dog games with him like, I'll run away from and he finally gets that he's supposed to chase me.  He also knows the word 'cookies' and I think he might be trainable using treats.  I have not tried it yet.

I see him understanding things now that he just didn't get a couple of months ago.  Like playing chase me.   He is very funny at bedtime and in the morning.  Whereas in he used to be persistent in trying to wake me up, now he gives up and sits at the end of the bed until I move, then he tries again to wake me.  He also teases me by sitting in the middle of the bed when it's time to go to bed.

Linus is still super sweet and loving.  He's begun to outgrow being held.  But he still loves to climb up on me when I'm sitting on the recliner and have me hold him.  He loves to lie next to me at night also.  I still don't think he understands boundaries, no matter how much the females in my house try to teach him - the girls used to lie next to me at bedtime and Linus would lie on them. 

I think Linus would be great with kids, although I have none at home.  I think he also might be okay with dogs.

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.
