My story

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

Porter came to Tails High a very scared mommy cat with her babies but she has made a lot of progress with her foster mom over time. She can still be a bit shy but she loves pets once she is comfortable with you. Porter will need a cat experienced adopter to give her the love and patience she needs but she will reward you with lots of laughs when she suddenly decides she wants to be a silly little cat with her favorite toys. We've been so excited to see Porter become much more playful in her foster home, zooming through the house chasing feather wands and enjoying cat trees by the windows to watch the birds! We know she will be a fantastic companion who will continue to flourish in the right home. Porter gets along well with other cats and would be happy to join other kitties in her forever home. Porter is not a good first cat and will not do well with young children. We expect she will not appreciate dogs.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We have a Foster-To-Adopt program that allows you to test the cat in your home for a period of time on a trial basis before finalizing the adoption. In fact, when you have another pet in the home (whether it’s a dog, another cat, birds, rabbit, ferret, etc.) or you have young kids or elderly parents living with you, we recommend that you do a Foster-To-Adopt to make sure it is a good fit for you and your family as well as resident pets and the Tails High cat or kitten(s) you’ve selected. Our goal is to make every effort to match people with the cats or kittens that fit their lifestyle and vice versa.

What costs are involved in adopting a cat from Tails High?

All of the cats and kittens at Tails High are fully vetted at the time of adoption. They are FELV/FIV combo tested, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and they have been spayed or neutered to protect against the feline population increasing.

As of May 2015, the adoption fee is $145 for single cat or kitten and $225 for a pair. This is a huge savings to the adopter considering if you took the same cat to a veterinarian for a spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations the cost would be upwards of $300-500 per cat.

Visit our web site to complete an adoption application. or send an email to us at and a Tails High representative will contact you promptly.

More about this rescue

Our Organization

Tails High is a cat rescue and adoption organization based in Alexandria, Virginia founded and staffed by compassionate volunteers who find joy in placing stray, abandoned, or homeless cats and kittens in permanent loving homes. We know that there is a perfect rescue cat for everyone.

In making wonderful feline-human matches, Tails High is dedicated to helping both rescued cats and kittens and their human families by providing wonderful cats to people looking for a sympathetic ear and a soft purr. We believe that cats are ideal companions: highly intelligent, and therapeutic.

Our Cats

All our cats and kittens have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are current on their vaccinations, and have been or will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We spend a lot of time playing and cuddling with our rescue kitties, as well as socializing them, and making sure they learn to love their people as much as their people love them.
