My story

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

Hi! My name is Cece! I was rescued at ACT Spay/Neuter Clinic in Stockton, CA.

I'm a sweet and friendly kitty. I initially come across as shy but only because it takes me a little time to open up and reveal my true purrsonality. Once I open up, I'll seek out your attention and show off my purrs and muffin-making skills. I'll even sleep on the bed with you at night... meow.

I'm looking for an experienced and patient family who understands some kitties require a little more time than others to feel comfy in new environments and around new humans. And if you already have a kitty at home, that's fine with me because I get along well with other kitties.

I know some of my Instagram fans and people who have met me at the adoption fairs are probably wondering why I haven’t been adopted by a loving family yet. I’m beautiful, sweet as can be, and love humans, so what’s the holdup? Well, let me explain. I have Manx Syndrome and it’s important for people to understand what this is. Some cats with Manx Syndrome lose mobility and aren’t able to jump but that isn’t true for me because I have full mobility and get around just fine. I can run, jump, play, and groom myself. However, in my case, I don’t always use the litter box consistently. I also experience constipation. My foster human has discovered how to better manage this and is happy to explain to you what she’s done. There’s definitely a way to keep things neat and tidy, it just requires a little extra effort. Oh, and If you would like to learn more about me and my condition, you can contact our team and my foster mom will tell you more about me and answer any questions.

I have so much love to give and am looking for a big-hearted family committed to my long-term care and well-being. Could that be you?

You can see more of me by checking out @purrfect_purrminators on Instagram and my new Instagram dedicated just to me @adopt_cece.

Please note:

  • Cece is a Special Needs cat.
  • Indoor only

More about this rescue

Every day adult and senior cats with treatable medical and behavioral conditions are euthanized. GIVE ME SHELTER's goal is to rescue these cats from certain death and place them into loving permanent homes.
GMS is a registered 501(c)3 organization and is dedicated to helping stop the overpopulation of unwanted and abandoned cats. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who are committed to bettering the life of adult cats who no longer have a home to call their own. Every time you adopt from us, you allow us to save another cat that would have otherwise died. We receive new cats into our system almost every week. Our website is constantly being updated, so please check back often!
