Giovanni came to us as a mostly feral 6 month old - he was born with siblings and 2 other groups of kittens in a junk yard in Los Angeles, rescued when 3 months old, and brought up to Santa Rosa with a couple other kittens at 6 months when the lady who rescued them was desperate and overwhelmed. He has taken a lot of time and patience, but has turned into an affectionate, social, cuddly cat. He loves to be pet, purrs readily, and is finally learning to climb on his foster mother's lap at times. However, he is bound to take some time (ie probably months) to adapt to a new home, so will need a patient and understanding family. He is great with other cats and dogs, but would probably do best without young children. And, he has developed a chronic upper respiratory tract infection so is on antibiotics and may stay on them for some months.
Purrfect Pals is made up of a small number of caring volunteers. Most of the cats and kittens taken in are strays or orphans brought in to a local veterinary hospital for help and from there taken in to try to secure them a lasting and loved future.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We do not have a shelter - cats are in private foster homes. So, we try to see if we have a potential match or matches, then usually set up a meeting at the veterinary hospital where many of us work.
Our Adoption Process...
All cats and kittens are FeLV/FIV tested, started on vaccines, and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adult cats are generally $60 and kittens are generally $70.
