My niece had all her rescued kittens spayed and neutered, they are socialized and have been having fun in the office, but it’s time for them to find their own forever homes. My niece will adopt the two boys, Cayman and Styx, and they did consider keeping the girls at work for a couple of office cats, but decided against it. Jennifer took them all home so they get a taste of life in a real home and other cats, another dog and other people. They really couldn’t get more socialization than all that!
So meet Cat Stevens and Luna! They are two purrfectly matched former feral kittens rescued from the wilds of the plant nursery with mom and four siblings. They are lucky girls, moving indoors to the office for socializing where they became office kittens, rearranging everyone’s desks and greeting customers. They even got to hang out with the office dog, Waylon, and got along fine with that sweet puppy. They completely gave up their feral ways, have never met a person they didn’t like, and are fine with nice dogs.
They love to be picked up and held, to nap on your lap and entertain you with their wild play. They are everything anyone would want in a kitten, and watching them together is the best kitten show ever. They would love to be adopted as a pair but could be adopted individually.
Luna is the lighter colored tabby and she is a turbine! She’s high energy and super lovable, and with the office skills she developed while working at the office she’ll help your printer print better (she likes to mess up your papers for attention). She likes soft rolly balls and tolerates Waylon, so she’s suitable for a home with a nice dog, because Waylon is a very nice dog.
Cat Stevens is very soft and quieter than her busy-busy sister. She likes to cuddle behind your butt and purr while you sit in your chair. She’ll listen intently to what you say and you’ll know she understands because she tilts her head with understanding while she looks into your eyes. She loved Waylon at first sight, surprising everyone by cuddling with him right away, so she’d probably love a nice doggy friend.
Both girls are spayed but will need age-appropriate vaccines (that was a bit much all at once for a single mom!). Jennifer will do a veterinarian and housing check and charge a small adoption fee to cover the costs of their veterinary care. If you are interested, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch! And please share!
Can’t adopt? Foster! Can’t foster? Donate or volunteer.
There are so many ways you can help cats who need homes and care. You may not have room to adopt another cat, but can foster a cat or kitten for a few weeks. If not that, you can volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue, or donate. You do this because you love your cat, and by doing so you help all cats. No matter which of these actions you take, you help to save a life, and make life better for all cats.
- Adopt one of the cats I’ve posted here, or from any shelter or rescue near you, or from Petfinder, to open up a space for another cat to be rescued and fostered.
- Offer to foster cats or kittens for a shelter or rescue near you.
- Volunteer at a shelter or rescue.
- Find a group of volunteers who work with homeless cats and help them with their efforts.
- Donate to a shelter or rescue near you.
If you can foster kittens or adults cats to help prepare them for a forever home, please run to your nearest shelter and find a cat who needs you! Anyone can help with this effort at any level, even if all you do is donate to a shelter or rescue so they can help to pay for the food or medications needed for their foster, or the spay/neuter/veterinary care during a clinic.
