Story
Hi, I'm Fiddle. I'd like to be your best friend. My most favorite thing to do is eat with you! Just envision Lady and the Tramp, we can share a plate of spaghetti together every night. I love to cuddle up and get cozy. Taking naps with my foster family is my favorite too. I'm always baking up fresh biscuits. Whenever someone pets me, I turn into a purr machine immediately. I enjoy playing with my foster sister Harmonica and my new buddy Banjo. We have a real good time chasing each other and wrestling around. According to my foster family, I have a HUGE personality and i keep them laughing every day. I would really enjoy a home with humans that love to cuddle and a kitty friend to play with. I was found outside in a yard in Compton. They thought I was going to lose my eye, but with some really good medications, they were able to save it! It has some scarring on it, which is why I look a little funny, but it doesn't effect me at all! I wouldn't even know I had an issue with my eye if someone hadn't told me.

Story
Meet Monarch! Monarch is a playful, sweet, and sassy kitten who would make the perfect new family member for a playful cat and a patient human. Monarch can be a bit shy at first and likes to get to know you before she rewards you with her love, but once she settles in, she sleeps in bed with you, purring at your feet; joins you on the couch; and lets you pet her soft, silky head. She has the cutest white boots and swirly tabby markings, as well as striking black eyeliner. Monarch would love to be adopted into a home with a cat. She loves to chase and wrestle her feline friends before settling in with them for a nap. Monarch has been waiting a long time for her perfect forever family to find her-could it be you?

Story
Milkshake is a funny guy with a crooked jaw. We suspect he was kicked, which caused his jaw to break. He eats just fine, it just gives him some character! Actually, eating is his favorite hobby and we're pretty sure that's how he survived the streets. He's a little shy at first, but all you have to do is give him some pets or some snackies and he'll immediately start his purr motor and melt. He loves to roll around on your lap and head snuggles. If you really want to win him over, give him a piece of meat and he will will walk to the ends of the earth with you. He's a chatterbox who will let you know his every thought. His chirps are the cutest thing. Milkshake loves to eat, play, and be pet. He loves to make biscuits on a nice fuzzy blanket in your lap. He's a good boy! Milkshake needs a cat friend in the home because he is extremely energetic. He also gets along with dogs, but will not cuddle with them.

Story
Say hello to Martini! This little one was initially part of our TNR program but we saw she was friendly enough to try and give her a new chance at life. Martini is a shy girl but is working on learning to accept love. She has come a long way in the short time she's been in her foster home. She is learning to play with her cat friends and loves wand toys. Martini needs someone with lots of patience and understanding. She is slow to warm up but once she's comfortable she's very affectionate. Martini would love to go home with her friend, Tequila Sunrise, but would also love a home with another patient and friendly cat.

Story
Hi there! My name is T'Challa because I am a black panther, sleek and stealth with grace. If that means clumsy with a goofy attitude, that’s me! I was born around March 21, 2023, and found with my siblings with no mamma along with an injury to my eye, before I was rescued by Paw Prints in the Sand Animal Rescue. My rough beginnings haven’t stopped me from being full of love and endless energy. I love to play and cuddle and purr loudly when being held and petted. I'm a loveable and cuddly kitten who will steal your heart with my playful antics. I was the first to bolt from my room to try to check out the rest of the apartment. I walk like I didn’t just escape – nothing to see here! I'm looking for my forever home where I can be loved and cherished. Come meet me at an adoption event soon!"

Hey there! My name is Silver and I'm named after the Marvel character, Silver Surfer. I was born around March 21, 2023, and was found with my siblings with no mamma before I was rescued by Paw Prints in the Sand Animal Rescue. I'm a kitten that goes for it in everything I do. I play hard and sleep hard. The banging on the door is not me trying to get out; it's me bouncing off the walls! I have a bit of a "paw" fetish - when I'm sleepy and cuddly I like to suckle on my siblings’ paw beans. I meow sadly when I'm refused a paw. It's absolutely adorable! I love to find a comfy place to sleep that is close to my foster parent or even on them. I’m looking for my forever home where I can be loved and cherished. Will that be you?"
