My story

Osito is a divine three year old, medium hair Black ‘house panther’ with a sleepy look on his handsome face, light green eyes and a small splash of white hairs on his chest. He’s smaller than he looks in the photos. Having lived outside prior to being rescued, Osito has some healed scars on his head and ears and also has those adorable “Tom Cat jowls,” which make him look like a small bear (hence his name.) He is a laid back boy, likes the quiet and will do best in a home with less activity. Osito gets along with other Cats and once he settles in is very affectionate and will sleep with you and accompany you as you move around the house. He only meows occasionally, loves to eat and will definitely let you know when he would like more food! He loves to watch the world from the windows and has an appreciation for art (check out his photos!) Osito is FIV+ but shows no symptoms. To meet this wonderful little bear, contact us: Adoptions by appointment only.

More about this rescue

Cat Connection 501(c) is a non-profit Cat and Dog rescue organization officially established in 1996. We rescue Cats and Dogs from the shelters and streets, take care of their medical and socialization and adopt them into new homes. Cat Connection is an all volunteer group with no paid staff. All donations and money raised goes directly to the care of our Animals.

Cat Connection Animal rescues include: Los Angeles County and City shelters, Animals from homes that can no longer keep them and sick and injured Animals from the streets.

Animals that come into Cat Connection are fully vetted, including testing for FELV/FIV, vaccinations, de-worming and treated for any illnesses and medical conditions.

Cat Connection is a no-kill Rescue Group; all animals stay with us in our Cattery or foster homes until placed into a permanent home.

We offer the public the courtesy of posting their Animals on our Adoption sites and social media if they need to re-home them.
