My story

This gorgeous gal is friendly, but can be very shy and cautious. Luma beats to the sound of her own drum and makes you earn her love - that is what we love about her. Luma is a gal who needs a patient adopter who is willing to work with her. It took Luma about two months in her current foster home to build confidence and trust. Recently Luma was put on Gabapentin to help reduce her stress, and she has been so much happier and friendlier since then! She typically roams the room nudging everything, making lots of gurgly meows, and doing a little nervous dance, while deciding if she is ready to let you pet her. She is a sweet, playful cat, but it's likely it will take lots of time and patience to make her into a loving, cuddly cat... but we hope it will occur someday with her new family! Luma loves wet food and is easily trained with it. She typically loves to be scratched or brushed on her head and cheeks, and with time is comfortable with touching on her back and tail. She will startle easily when being touched, but rarely shows aggression - only jumping, hiding, or hissing (no biting or scratching) when scared. She will tear a toy apart (loving feathery toys, mice, and especially balls - she'll play all evening and is up all night running around), but she has not done any damage to any furniture or belongings. She actually will ensure that every bit of food is cleaned up off the floor and is good with her litter. When other cats are around, Luma becomes passive and tends to hide. She has grown to tolerate one very friendly cat in the foster home, but she would prefer a chill, calm cat friend, or to be an only cat. She would not do well with young kids or people who are not patient, quiet, calm, and willing to give her the space and time she needs.

Their adoption process

1.

Submit Application

Typically we talk a little with potential adopters to find a cat who is a good fit before sharing the application.

2.

Approve Application

We check over the application including checking vet references and doing landlord checks.

3.

Interview

We spend more time chatting with the adopters to specifically go over any questions from the application and details about the specific cat.

4.

Meet the Pet

Potential adopters have a meet and greet with the cat or kitten in the foster home.

5.

Sign Adoption Contract

At the meet and greet, if all goes well, the adoption contract can be signed, the fee can be paid, and the pet can go home!

Additional adoption info

We try to do our best to make sure we find good fitting, responsible homes, without wasting a lot of our time. Our app has a lot of screening questions which help eliminate potential adopters who might not be serious (they usually just don't return the app), or not a good fit, which is why the in depth interview happens once the app is returned.

More about this rescue

We are a small but dedicated 501c3 nonprofit cat rescue specializing in making one person's garbage kitten another person's forever cat. Our mission is to reduce feline suffering and overpopulation using a combination of TNR and adoptions. We foster and socialize whenever we have the resources to do so, including behavioral cats and kittens who might otherwise just be candidates for TNR.
