My story

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

Astra is an enigma. We have concluded she is either semi-feral or exceptionally moody. . Astra enjoys watching what people are doing, likes head and chin scratches when SHE wants them, and rubbing legs of people she is comfortable with. However, there are times she wants to slap people and we have been unable to predict the why and when. Due to severe dental disease all of her teeth were removed so she cannot bite and must eat a soft diet or kitten sized kibble she can swallow whole. She is most definitely not a cat for kids. She is independent and although she can tolerate an occasional cat or two she can be just as cranky to them as she is to people. She will not be a pet per se, but does not run and hide from people either.. She has no experience with dogs.
Astra has been spayed, is up to date on her shots, has tested negative for FeLV and FIV, and has been microchipped. She has been deflead and dewormed. An application, landlord approval if renting, a safety homecheck, and adoption fee are required.
Discount to seniors, military/veterans, and with proof of disability. Are you the special someone who can give our little momma the home she needs and deserves? She is ripe to bond with an experienced cat-person or two and enjoy the life of a housecat instead of foraging for scraps of food.

More about this rescue

We rescue animals from high kill shelters or abandoned local strays and foster them until they find an adoptive home. Our southern branch also goes out on emergency rescue calls for cats in drain and sewer pipes, up trees, stuck in walls etc. Transport in available up and down the state of CA. We also TNR local stray and feral populations. The plight of homeless animals moves us deeply. It is unspeakably horrific to see gentle loving animals killed simply because they are homeless. While we cannot save them all, each one saved deserves it. We are a 501c3 registered, CA non-profit corporation.
