Ida

Breed: DSH Brown Tabby
Age: 1 Year
Gender: Female

Posted 1-25-22. Ida Rose is just under 1.5yo and is an 8.5lb spayed female. Ida is an indoor kitty and is leash-trained, very playful, and an excellent snuggler. She doesn't scratch furniture, isn't overly vocal, and has never had an accident outside of her litter box. She is easy to pill, allows me to clip her nails and brush her teeth, and has received A+ behavior reports from the vet. She has lived in a house with 4 people, 2 dogs, and 2 cats and currently lives in a place with one human. Her favorite game is stalk and chase and she is happy being the stalkee or stalker. She is very shy of new people and it will take time for her to acclimate and show her playful nature. She would do best in a quiet home with patient adults who have a lot of time for quality kitty snuggles!

Ida has been diagnosed with mild Irritable Bowel Disease and takes a daily steroid. She still experiences periodic flair-ups (vomiting and not-eating), so Ida's new caretaker will have to agree to regular medical care. While the disease can't be cured, kitties with IBD can live a long and happy life! Ida is not an AFRP cat and she is currently being fostered at her current home in Salinas, CA, and is very much looking for her permanent family!

Mandy

Breed: DLH Grey Tabby
Age: 7 Years
Gender: Female

Posted 1-6-22. Mandy is a petite 7-year-old spayed female grey tabby with a silky-soft coat. Her owner recently passed away and she is looking for a new home where she can be an only cat in the household or live with a another adult cat that does not expect to play or interact.  She's a very quiet and well mannered cat that likes to sleep on her heated bed, and she happily uses her scratching pad instead of the furniture. She has her playful moments and likes her fishing pole toy and sparkly balls. She's a very sweet cat that likes petting on her own terms, and though she is not really a lap cat she likes to be near you. She is not clingy or needy and can entertain herself. Mandy is a good groomer, but due to her long coat she benefits from weekly brushing to prevent mats and tangles. Her litter box habits are impeccable. She prefers good quality wet food twice a day, and she has good eating habits. She is an indoor cat that should only go outside on a harness and leash or under close supervision. Mandy is not an AFRP cat. For more information please email Aimee at aimeefae@yahoo.com

Leo

Breed: DLH Orange Tabby
Age: 12 Years
Gender: Male

Posted 12-29-21. Leo is a 12 year old domestic long hair cat looking for a new home.  He's a friendly boy that likes people and gets along with other cats.  He was rescued after being abandoned by his family and left to live alone outside in a gated condo complex.  Leo would probably do best in an environment where he can go between indoors and outdoors.  He loves to play with cat toys and loves his scratch box.  (He does not claw furniture). He also knows how to use a cat door. Like many older cats, Leo has elevated thyroid numbers and is currently taking medication to keep him in a healthy range. He is neutered and fully vaccinated.  Leo is not an AFRP cat and currently lives in Salinas. For more information about giving Leo a loving home, please email Steve at steve@xp-media.net

Bel

Breed: DSH Brown Tabby
Age: 16 Years
Gender: Female

Posted 11-2-21. Bel is a very sweet, very shy senior who needs a new home due to a child in the family with severe allergies. She is healthy, spayed, chipped, vax'd and recently had a senior work up at the vet. Currently living in the garage, Bel needs a very patient adopter willing to feed and water an invisible cat for as long as it takes - even if that means never - for her to come out of hiding. She's a hider, not a runner and is very untrusting. Calling to her, cooing, and trying to coax her out will only do the opposite. She wants a dark corner and safe place to eat and sleep. She has never wanted exercise or play time. She is very sedentary and calm. Once she warms up she loves being petted and will lay next to you but she's not interested in being picked up or laid on a lap. She needs a quiet home with no other dogs or cats or small noisy children. Best would be a home where she has her own space. Her current living situation is in a garage with her own little cat home (which will go with her) and heated bed where she's quite happy and content. Additional challenge may be that she prefers to not use a litter box. Her new home may have a litter box available for her but she prefers not to use one. Her new home would have to have a space for her to "go" on dirt or concrete. She prefers one place. For instance right now she potties by the side of the garage which is a convenient place for me to pick it up and clean the concrete as needed. Ideally her new home would be quiet, calm, and willing to let her live the last 4-5 yeas of her life in their garage, granny cottage, etc. For more information please email Alissa at alissa480@icloud.org

She is litter-box trained and she is a wonderful companion. Zelda is not an AFRP cat. For more information, please contact Sherri at 831-320-9210 or email sherrihernandez3@gmail.com

Jinx

Breed: Tortie-Point Siamese
Age: 10 Years
Gender: Female

Posted 9-30-21. Jinx is a soft and sweet 10-year-old spayed female tortie-point Siamese mix with a friendly and gentle personality. Her elderly guardian recently passed away, and now Jinx is looking for a new loving home. Jinx is great with children and is used to having a dog living next door. She was previously an indoor/outdoor cat, but she would adjust nicely to a safe, indoor-only lifestyle. Jinx is not an AFRP cat and she currently lives in Santa Cruz. For more information contact MarieLouise at 831-661-5775 or email mlminvielle@yahoo.com  

Mamacita

Breed: DSH Tuxedo
Age: 9 Years
Gender: Female

Posted 9-14-21. Meet Mamacita, a beautiful tuxedo cat with amazing white whiskers. Sadly, neighbors reported that her owner passed away about a year ago and she was put on the street to fend for herself. Mamacita is currently in foster care in the Monterey area. She is independent, chatty, curious, playful and exactly herself. At almost 10 years, she is wise and knows what she likes: catnip and the be around people on her own terms.

Mamacita was exposed to a common cat cold when living on her own, and she developed a chronic sniffle. It does not slow her down a bit and she can live a normal, full life. If your home has other felines, we can talk to you about any risks due to her symptoms. Mamacita could live with respectful dogs and older kids She enjoys being combed and brushed, but not picked up or held. She will find your lap when she's ready. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines and flea preventative. She had a full senior blood panel in March and her results are normal. For more information pics or short videos contact Tamara at 831-236-8645.

Loki

Breed: DSH Orange Tabby
Age: 5 Years
Gender: Male

Post renewed 10-29-21. This is Loki! He is a handsome, loving, healthy cat in need of a new home due to some landlord issues. Loki is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. He is a smart, communicative cat that will greet you at the door, take naps by your side and curl up on your lap. He has been an indoor-only cat with access to a garage. He was previously a stray. Loki loves people but he had some issues with the other cat in the home. He'll probably be happiest as a single cat in the household. He is unknown with dogs. Loki is not an AFRP cat. If you can give this great cat the loving safe home he deserves, please call Elizabeth at 831-214-8762.

 

 

Luke & Chewie

Breed: DSH
Age: Adult
Gender: Male

Posted 2-16-21. Luke and Chewy are 4-year-old brothers that would like to be adopted together! They are healthy, neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Their owner found them as newborn kittens on his patio, and they have always been together. Luke (grey tabby) loves attention and he'll greet you at the door and roll on your feet when he wants attention. He's a true lap cat that likes to be held and enjoys taking long naps and playing with his brother. Chewy, (orange tabby) is also lovable but is a bit shy and he'll run and hide when he is stressed. He loves to chase laser pointers, lounging on the sofa, perching at the top of the cat tree and bird-watching from the window. He loves attention, but on his own terms. Their guardian will give their new adopter their cat litter boxes, cat tree, toys, and other supplies. Luke and Chewie are not AFRP cats and currently live in Newark, CA.
