My story

Curren and Occy are nine year old brothers who need a loving furr-ever home. They are both indoor only kitties, and truly do not act as though they are nine. While it could take time for their amazing personalities to come through, I have no doubt that they will.
Curren is about 9 pounds and is extremely friendly and loving. He literally never stops purring. He is happy to sit and look at you (while purring) until you decide to commence with the petting. Curren came down with a sinus problem a few years ago where he sneezes a lot. We have been able to get it under control with half of a prednisolone pill every other day.
Occy is only about 5 pounds and is the more cautious of the two. He loves a good lap for a good nap! And if there isn’t one available, he’ll snuggle under a nice blanket. He has a bit of alopecia on the insides of his back legs, but that hasn’t been a problem at all. Of the two of them, I think he missed his original owner the most, but he has recently come out of his shell and has shown much more affection.
They are on a Purina Sensitive Stomach diet. The previous owner, and although his heart was in the right place, he had them on a food that didn’t agree with them. They have acclimated very well to this new and much cheaper food.
Unfortunately, our home situation is one where we simply cannot keep them. Fortunately for them, taking care of my FIL’s estate has taken more time than anticipated. However, that time is coming to an end and we need to find a home for them. We appreciate any help you can give us. Thank you.
If you feel we would be a good fit with your family, please reach out to Dirty Little Paws Rescue at Dirtylittlepaws@gmail.com or fill out our adoption questionnaire. We can hardly wait to be part of your life.

Additional adoption info

Our pet adoption process is fairly straightforward as outlined above. Basically, our potential adopters can contact us regarding pets they may be interested in, or can meet our pets by coming into one of our Petsmart or Petco store locations in the Oceanside/Vista,CA area. We will discuss the pet they're interested in, have them fill out an adoption application and ask some questions around that. If we feel the pet is a fit for the adopter we will then have them complete an adoption agreement perform a home check and collect the adoption fee. We will then deliver the brand new pet to their Happy Forever Home!

Go meet their pets

Our fosters provide a loving home to many of our pets, but you can come and visit some of our furr-babies at following stores: PetCo - 3875 Mission Ave Oceanside, CA PetCo - 2445 Vista Way Oceanside, CA OR... you can always call/text us and we'll be happy to accommodate you meeting any of our kitties.

More about this rescue

Dirty Little Paws is a new non-profit rescue in Southern California. We rescue from kill shelters and from the street, manage feral colonies, and promote TNR (trap, neuter, release). Our mission is to save the lives of as many cats as possible. We respond to daily emergencies, fully vet each cat, release ferals back into their colonies, rehabilitate some, make sick cats well, hold adoption fairs, educate the public, and place a strong emphasis on sourcing donations through events & fundraisers so that this work may continue.
