Facts about Sandro

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 1099
  • Hair: Short

Sandro was found living in a parking lot at a Peninsula apartment complex. He was friendly and sweet to the volunteers who fed the group of feral cats living in the area, and clearly had been someone's pet, as he has no fear of people. When the trappers arrived to collect him, no trapping necessary. They just picked him up and put him into a cat carrier.

Sandro enjoys playing with small toys on his own, or with one of his fosterers' cats, and loves  playing with and leaping for a ribbon wand. This handsome boy definitely was used to interacting with people for playtime. He sits on your lap for petting, enjoys being combed and brushed, can easily be picked up and carried for short distances, though prefers ambulating on his own four paws. A sweet, mellow guy, Sandro easily breaks into a purr with just a kind word. Sandro has the run of his fosterers' house, but sleeps in the guestroom at night.

Sandro is neutered, microchipped, tested negative, and vaccinated. While the picture of health, Sandro has asthma, which is well and easily controlled with a once-daily inhaled medication. He can be adopted as an only cat, though probably would enjoy and get along with your mellow young adult kitty. He previously lived and peacefully coexisted in a small group of outdoor cats of both genders, and now interacts with his fosterers' own pet cats.

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 10:00 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 $100 for a kitten (or $175 for two kittens)and $50 for adult cats (over 12 months old), 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!
