My story

Ponyo is a brown Tabby, is between 8-10 years old, has a cream blotch on her nose, and loves her sister Chloee. She's very timid and quiet initially, but once she warms up to you and gets comfortable she becomes very talkative and cuddly! Her meow is soft spoken and high pitch and she loves butt scratches. Once she comes out of her shell she loves to play, especially with small soft toys. She picks her favorite human and sticks to them and Chloee. As long as she is with her sister she can overcome any obstacle!

Ponyo and Chloee were rescued together at a few months of age. These furbabies were raised with lots of love in a multi animal home. They never lived outside and only lived as indoor cats.

Unfortunately, life had a different plan in mind for us, as a close family member has developed a terminal illness and is prone to accidents. The family member's mobility is tough and due to that, both for the safety of the kitties and the family member, we need to find them new loving homes to call their fur-ever homes.

* Ponyo and Chloee must be adopted together as they are bonded. * These cats prefer a dog free home, however if you have a small dog that is good with cats, they will tolerate the dog. * These cats prefer to be the only cats in the home. * These cats prefer an adult or senior home, no children please. * These cats are easy-going and can be playful during play time. They want more attention as they get more comfortable with you, but they are also very independent the majority of the time. As long as they are around you they are happy. * They can keep themselves occupied during normal work hours as well. * All three kitties will hunt small animals like hamsters, birds, fish etc. If you have these in your home it might not be a great fit.

 These kitties are up-to-date on their vaccines and are all spayed. * These cats prefer wet cat food over dry food, but will eat dry food in small amounts if left out. (They specifically like Friskies Pate, the ocean fish and salmon ones.) * Will require paying a re-homing fee of at least 40$. * If possible, will need to schedule a home check/visit to see if you and your home are a right fit for these kitties. * If for any reason you no longer wish to keep these cats, I will personally take them back no questions asked. Please reach out to me first if you are considering putting them back up for adoption. These cats are very important to our family and I wish to find them the best home they can be in. * If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. If you call, please leave a voicemail as I get a large amount of spam calls.

Ponyo is currently living in Elk Grove, CA 95757

Please note:

  • Ponyo needs a home with no young children. (The San Diego Humane Society offers a Shy Cat training class over Zoom.)
