Facts about Mama Kitty

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Oh, hi there. I didn’t know you were looking at me, but I’m so happy you are. I’m Mama Kitty, and aren’t I just the sweetest little thing? What they say is true, good things come in small packages. And, while I may be small in stature, I make up for it with a great big heart full of love to share with you!

So, I bet you’d like to know a little bit about me. I was living as a stray in Denver about three years ago when a nice young woman started looking out for me. I stayed in her back yard quite often and eventually she took me in. Growing up on the streets away from people can make it hard for a cat like me to adjust to living in a home with a family, but I did my best and things were going pretty well for a while. Then, my mom got a kitten and I had a rough time adapting to the new presence in my environment. Sadly, my mom chose the kitten over me and I ended up here.

I get along with other cats here just fine, so I might be able to live with cats in my new home too. I don’t know about dogs though, as I am a pretty timid girl. The best environment for me would be one that is a little bit quiet with a gentle family that will show me a lot of love. I am already getting used to the volunteers and staff here at MaxFund, so I know that I will adapt to my new home just fine.

You may have noticed that my tongue sticks out sometimes, but I promise I am not being rude. I am missing some of my incisor teeth, which are the ones that hold the tongue in. It’s no big deal and it doesn’t cause me any trouble at all. Just think of the conversation starter I will be with all of your visitors! Please give me a chance to have a safe, happy home. This little lady is waiting here for you to rescue me away and love me forever!

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!
