Facts about Lionel

Lionel is a handsome young kitty.  He is a short-haired orange mackerel tabby, with a cute dark orange necklace that has a small white “locket” in the middle of his neck; his own natural cute collar.  He’s a prince in the making! 

Trapped as a wild, young kitten at about 9 weeks, he spent a couple years being socialized in a foster home before taking up residency at the Kitten Rescue Sanctuary.  Lionel absolutely LOVES to chase the laser light, as well as play with wand toys.  He is a somewhat mild-mannered young man, and though he is not a cuddly lap kitty, he does enjoy being pet and having his ears, chin, and cheeks scratched.  Occasionally he will jump up on a lap and take a nap.  

Lionel should do well in a somewhat quiet home, where his human family will play with him often, and engage him in their everyday activities.  Lionel can be curious and is still learning the ways of a house-cat—and learns by example.  Having a super friendly kitty friend would encourage Lionel to love on his people as the kitty friend does.  Lionel tends to be very shy around new people, so it may take him a little while to learn to trust his new family.  Engaging him in play would surely accelerate this trust.  

Lionel is good with other kitties, though he's never really been exposed to dogs.He is neutered, current on vaccinations, has no fleas or worms, and is microchipped.

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.
