Facts about Kika

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hi, I'm Kika. Do you wonder what Kika means or why I'm named that? Well, I have no idea. There was a Spanish movie called Kika. But I doubt that was the origin of my name. Oh well, I guess we'll never know.

When I first came to MaxFund, I went to a foster home with my kittens. When I was in the home, I would sit with the family in the living room while they watched TV. I didn't go close to them, but I liked being included with the crew (they had other cats too). I also liked roaming the house. Toward the end of my stay, I was sleeping with the couple, but I always made sure I got up before they did. I would sleep on the woman's stomach or against her leg. Unfortunately, once my kittens were old enough to survive on their own, I was brought to MaxFund to find my forever home. My kittens got adopted, so it was my turn. I then got adopted but I am shy and didn't match what the person wanted in a cat I guess. So I got returned. I'm now back at MaxFund waiting for you to come get me. Please come soon!

I am a pretty shy and timid girl. Although I never initiate the petting, I don't mind if you pet me. Of course, I ask that you please go slowly with me and let me get to know you. Then when I trust you and know you're safe, I let you pet me. I must say that I have made progress while being at MaxFund though. When I first came here, I was really scared. Now, you can pet me. I think in a loving home, I will really blossom! I was only in my foster home for a short amount of time, and I was already sleeping on the bed. Just imagine how much progress I'll make when I'm in a patient and loving home for more than a few weeks!

How about it? Will you please take me home and let me blossom into the cat I know I can be? I just need someone who is patient and loving and understands me. What do you say? Want to give me a chance? I hope so!!

About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc. You can print out an application on our website at

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
