My story

Brothers, Dougie and Tristan were born at the college of San Mateo. They were older than the other kittens that had been trapped when they were rescued so they took longer to socialize.  Now they are love-bugs who are initially a little shy but not for long. Dougie is the shy brother while Tristan is much more outgoing. Tristan loves pets down his back while Dougie love tummy rubs. They both love to play with ribbons and get treats from your fingers. The boys are a bonded pair so want to stay together. Is yours the family for two wonderful brothers?

Please note:

  • Tristan should be adopted with a littermate
  • Tristan needs a home with no young children
  • Indoor only

This helps defray the cost of feeding, housing, and providing medical care to our animals. - All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated (except rabies) and cats & kittens tested for feline leukemia.

More about this rescue

Companions in Waiting began in 2003, and was incorporated as a 501(c)3 California non-profit corporation in 2007. Our mission is: - To prepare animals to become life-long members of a family. - To support companion animals and their owners through educational materials, individual behavioral problem solving, workshops and community activities. - To work with local county animal services to help those animals in their care that need longer term specialized care than county facilities can provide. Companions In Waiting works to help dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies become welcomed members of a family. Each animal goes through a program of "in home" socialization, animal good manners, beginning obedience training and other therapies designed especially for them that will nurture their physical and mental well-being while in our care. Potential adopters will be given guides to support, develop and enhance their relationship with the new member of the family. Follow-up communication will increase the likelihood that these companion animals will stay in a stable, loving home their entire lives. Companions In Waiting is a California corporation for charitable and educational purposes. The corporation has tax-exemption status under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Your donations to Companions in Waiting are tax-deductible.
