Olive & Oyl are a BONDED PAIR that will need to be adopted to the same home together.

Hi! Our names are Olive & Oyl. Our caretakers at RCHS would describe us as being in the ORANGE category. Cats in the ORANGE category have the potential to be timid or nervous when first settling in. They would be best for adopters who previously had a cat and are willing to give a cat time and space to gain confidence. Usually, cats in this category take less time to become comfortable than those in the purple category.
Cats are assigned color categories using any previous owner notes, general handling, as well as staff and volunteer observations. As we continue to get to know the cats and gather further insights into their personalities, colors may be adjusted accordingly.

Rancho Coastal adopts out kittens starting at 8 weeks of age.  Many of them have been in foster homes for weeks and were even bottle-fed.   If you are thinking about bringing home kittens, be sure to consider your time away from home and the ages of your family members.  Kittens between the ages of 8-11 weeks old need more attention and care than older kittens.  They need continued training and play time, and are generally better with older children.  Kittens that are 4 months and older make better companions for young children and are generally more gentle during play.
Rancho Coastal encourages adopting kittens in pairs, which is why we have created our “Two Purr One” Program: if you choose to adopt a pair of kittens, the second kitten has a waived adoption fee. Behaviorists recommend pairs because kittens benefit from the companionship and because they are more entertained, they do less damage around your home.

If interested in adopting Olive & Oyl, an adoption survey and instructions can be found on our website.
Adoption Hours: Friday-Monday; 11 AM to 4 PM  (Adoptions until 3:30 PM)

Why adoption is a great option

Olive & Oyl (Bonded Pair), a Encinitas Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Encinitas, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Encinitas.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encinitas already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Encinitas breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encinitas paves the way for another one to be saved.
