My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Shrimp got his name because he was from near a shrimp truck on the North Shore. He was just a tiny little thing, still smelling of shrimp even after a few baths. Although he's an adult, he still acts like a kitten and is curious about everything. He loves playing with toys, with mice toys with feather tails being his favorite. He is talkative, especially when food is involved. His favorite past time besides eating is using scratching posts.

Shrimp is very nervous, cautious, and anxious when around new cats, so if there is another cat in the home the adopter needs to have patience and conduct a proper introduction between them as to help Shrimp adapt.

Meet the Pet

An interview will generally be conducted either before or during this step.


Sign Adoption Contract

If the foster and the potential adopter agree upon adoption, an adoption contract will be signed.

Fees range between $25-100 dollars per cat, depending on the foster.


Take the Pet Home

Additional adoption info

If an individual is interested in a cat or kitten listed, they will complete the first three pages of the Cat People of Oahu (CPO) Adoption Application and submit to Please review the fourth page but do not complete it at this time.

A representative from CPO will forward the completed application to the cat's current foster parents. The foster parent will then be in contact with the prospective adopter to set up a time to meet the cat. If the foster parent opts to offer the cat to the interested party and the interested party decides to adopt, then the CPO Adoption Contract will be reviewed and signed by both parties and the adoption fee will be paid directly to the foster.

Please note that there may be a short waiting period between the meet and greet and a finalized adoption and that filling out an application and meeting a cat does not guarantee that you will be selected to adopt a specific cat.

Cats and kittens listed are in foster homes across the island. The location of a specific animal will be disclosed once you inquire, but please be prepared to possibly travel to meet your cat or kitten of interest.

Adoption fees range from $25-$100 per cat and are determined by the foster.

Because Cat People of Oahu works through a network of fosters, interested parties must contact us to set up a meet and greet with an adoptable cat or kitten.

More about this rescue

Cat People of Oahu is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to help people help cats. We began as a Facebook group in September of 2017 and it is the largest community cat related group in the state of Hawaii. We provide information, education, and resources for individuals who own or care for pet, feral, and free-roaming cats.

We advocate for spay and neuter, rescuing, fostering, adoption and trap-neuter-return. We believe in providing a well-organized and well-maintained group for cat lovers and those new to the cat world - where they can post pictures and videos, ask for and receive reliable advice, advertise foster cats and kittens available for adoption, and much more.

Additionally, we provide opportunities to fundraise as a group for cats in need in order to cover things such as medications, feral/pet/foster cat sterilizations, and hospitalizations and surgeries for sick and injured cats.

We are always in need of monetary donations, in-kind donations, volunteers (fosters, trap-neuter-return, transportation), and people to spread our name far and wide so we can continue to help cats and kittens in need on Oahu.
