Please meet Pearl. This beauty is a Rag Doll, and such a special one isn't she. You can't help but fall in love with those eyes and her beautiful silky coat. Pearl's beloved owner recently passed away and she is looking for another loving home like she's been used to all her life. Ragdoll cats are known to be gentle, calm and sociable, but do require brushing of that gorgeous coat of hers. She loves attention, enjoys being brushed and stroked and she loves taking treats from her owner’s hand. Pearl is 12 years old, she's been vet cared for all her life, neutered, is up to date with her shots and micro chipped. For more information on Pearl, please contact: Sally North – 818-326-9526. You’ll be glad you did!!
You will be glad when you meet this handsome cat. He’s a 10 yr old diluted Orange Tabby that couldn’t be a better behaved or more loving kitty, according to his foster. His original owner is no longer able to care for him, and we were lucky to bring him into our program.
He loves people and comes out to greet and spend time with anyone who happens to visit. He loves to cuddle. He is very curious, exploring everything. He likes to know what is going on. He’s affectionate and loves to sit right next to you. He is fascinated with what is going on outside the window. He always uses his litter box, does not spray and he never scratches furniture or carpets. If one could want the purrfect kitty, Boom Boom is that cat. If you love an affectionate well behaved cat, this is the boy for you.
For more information on Boom Boom, please contact Sally North at 818-326-9526.

We have a handsome orange tabby you will want to meet. He’s a young boy,18 months, full of vinegar and ready for play. We named him Jack after Jack Reacher because he likes to reach out and catch things. He’s high energetic, but his prey behaviors will be worked out in time through positive play. Jack is not much for grooming, but he’s into being picked up, likes sitting next to you, and he slept with his original owner. Laser is his favorite toy. He always used his litter box, thank you very much. Suggest no dogs or small children in the home. An active adult or couple would be ideal.
He’s been vet checked, neutered, up to date with his shots and ready for that new human parent who is looking for a really gorgeous Yellow Tabby with white feet and chest. He also has a unique markings down his back. His foster is enjoy him immensely and feels he will make a really fine addition to your home.
To find out more about this lovely cat, please contact Lonnie Painter at 949-533-7947. You will be so glad you did.

We have a new Tuxedo to introduce to you. Her name is Gladys. She’s 8 years old, vet checked, up to date on her shots and chipped. Her owner is no longer able to care for her, and she really needs that loving home she has been used to all her life.
It’s been a traumatic time for this little girl, but she’s adjusting to her foster very well. She still hides a bit, but doesn’t want to be alone. She is still shy but loves to be brushed, eats well and always uses her litter box. She shared her home with another cat, so if you have a cat, she would adjust well. She's looking for a friend just like you. To find out more about this lovely cat, please contact Lonnie Painter at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be more than glad you did.

The Adoption Program
Our primary goal is a successful adoption: finding a loving and safe forever home for the special cats who have entered our program, most of whom are older and grieving the loss of their home and human. It’s important to us to establish that the potential adopter is capable of providing the kitty with a safe environment, nourishing food, regular veterinary care, appropriate attention, and an understanding heart. We are honest about each cat’s needs and the potential cost of its care. On this basis, we reserve the right to deny an application. However, because we are so thorough, our success rate is phenomenally high. Most of our cats have spent their lives in one home where they were given lots of love and care. So most, in spite of their advanced age, are friendly, affectionate, and healthy creatures. Each has had a recent exam and is up to date on all required shots and tests. For us, the joy of a purrfect match is indescribable.
The Adoption Process
*To find your perfect companion, go to lagunawoodscatclub.com and click on “adoptable cats.” Also check out our kitties on Pet Finders and Adopt-a-Pet.
*Call the number on our site for our Director of Adoptions. Arrange to meet the kitty in which you are interested.
*Complete an Adoption Application and email or send it to the address on the form.
*Arrange a home visit. Cats are very clever escape artists and relentlessly curious. We will visit your home and point out possible hazards or places in which they can get into trouble.
*Arrange for the transfer of the kitty and its stuff to its new forever home!
* The adoption fee will be applied at the finalization of the adoption .
Another year, and in spite of Covid, we still managed to find loving homes for 14 kitties in our Adoption Program. And in our Courtesy Program, we helped to find homes for 14 more cats. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful kitties we had in our lives this past year. Thanks, as always, for you constant support.

Be prepared should be your mantra when bringing a new pet into your home. Cats are particularly sensitive to new surroundings and some may hide under a bed or in a closet for days or even weeks. You can avoid pitfalls with your new critter and help him or her adapt more easily by following these guidelines:
Before You Bring Your Cat Home:
First Day: Now, you are ready for your cat’s homecoming. Preferably, bring her home in a cat carrier. It will feel safer to her.She has seen a lot of excitement, so take her directly to her new room. (Make sure the toilet lid is down, if she’s to acclimate in your bathroom.) Ideally, you would restrict her exposure to the whole family, but naturally, everyone is going to want to see her. Remind them of the ground rules you’ve set up.
Following Weeks: It may take your cat a week or two to adjust. Be patient.
Congratulations! If you follow these tips, you’ll be on your way to having a well-adjusted feline family member.
