My story

A few weeks ago, a young couple moved onto a new property in Paso Robles. They slowly made their way through the old sheds on the corner of their vineyard, cleaning them out as they went along. To their surprise, they found a large hole in the corner of one of the sheds and litters of small kittens scattered throughout the old supplies. The kittens and their mom went into foster until they were old enough to be adopted!

Merlin (dark brown tabby) is a confident, curious, and playful guy! During playtime, he loves to climb on anything and everything. He was born to explore. Merlin's favorite toys are balls with a bell inside or his siblings. He plays hard, and sleeps hard. Back scratches are his kryptonite and will put him right to sleep!

Sirius (black) is more reserved and takes a little to come around but he is very sweet. He has a quieter purr but an adorable little meow once you stop giving him attention. He’s starting to be more of a lap kitty, when his brother isn’t on your lap already. His favorite time to accept love is in the mornings he will rub all over you and give his little meows. He loves to tangle himself up with yarn and string toys. At the end of the day, you can find him snuggled up to Merlin in a soft blanket.

They both enjoy playing with their toys (their favorite is the tunnel), chasing each other, and looking adorable at nap time. These two have a lot of love and snuggles to give!

*They require a special GI diet to avoid upset stomachs.

Additional adoption info

Many of our adoptable cats are rescued from other shelters where they likely wouldn't have made it very long. We are a "no-kill" shelter, which means our kitties have ample time to patiently wait for their forever home. Our volunteers get to know each cat very well and we pride ourselves on our matchmaking skills. Each potential adopter is screened to make sure they are the best match for them and for the cat they are interested in. We can find you the purrrrfect fit! All of our cats are current on their vaccinations, microchipped, spayed/neutered, treated for parasites, and tested for FIV & FeLV. If you'd like to adopt through our program, please contact our Adoptions Coordinators at adoptionscpcp@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that every adoption requires application approval and payment of an adoption fee. Single kittens and adults under 10 years of age have an adoption fee of $100 while pairs are $150. Seniors and special needs cats are $75 for one and $100 for a pair. We will not be separating bonded pairs. CPCP follows a 2-kitten policy, meaning that all kittens must be adopted in pairs unless the adopter has another young cat in the household that can serve as a playmate for the new kitten. Please do not hesitate to ask questions if you have any, and thank you for choosing to help homeless pets in need! To get started on our adoption process, please email us at adoptionscpcp@gmail.com!

More about this rescue

The Cal Poly Cat Program (CPCP) is a non-profit shelter operating on Cal Poly San Luis Obispo University's campus. Our organization is made up of students, faculty, staff and community members who care about the health and happiness of both feral and domesticated cats.The program was started in 1992 as a senior project by Garret Quindimil to solve the problem of a rising cat population at Cal Poly. Using TNR, the cat population has been successfully managed and our volunteers are able to focus their attention on rehoming cats in need. Our adoption program has placed more than 3,000 cats and kittens into caring homes. We continue to work with other agencies to reach a time when there are no more homeless cats.
