Our little Cleo was found in the Village, meowing for food and love in the cul de sacs near Gate 4. The Cat Club took her in and looked for her owner -- she was way too friendly to be feral. Despite the search, no one has come forward to claim her. So now we're looking for a forever home Cleo can call her own.
Cleo has short warm brown hair with tabby stripes, white on her face, and big greenish eyes. Cleo is a small girl kitty, and the vet says she's about 5 years old. All up-to-date on her shots, Cleo is a healthy young cat. She had already been spayed.
Once she gets to know you, Cleo is a loving, friendly cat. She's become a lap cat, snuggling in the evenings to share some warmth with her foster. Cleo's likes include petting on the bed, playing, and watching out the window. She's well-behaved and seems thankful to be inside where it's safe and warm.
To meet sweet little Cleo, contact Dolores DeMayo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 714-488-4592. You'll be very glad you did!
Frida is a delightful 5-year-old cat, with gleaming short black hair and a little white star beneath her neck. She looks at you with large yellow-green eyes.
Her owner had to move into care, so Frida needs a new best friend to give her the love and attention she's used to getting. She's been vet-checked, is up-to-date on her shots, and is healthy. See her in action in her video!
In no time, Frida made herself right at home at her foster's. No hiding for her; she's an outgoing girl. She loves pets and attention, and hops up on the couch to sit next to her foster and just enjoy the companionship. She's a well-behaved little cuddler who claws her scratching post instead of the furniture, and responds when she hears her name.
To meet super-friendly Frida, contact Carolyn Maxwell at 949-742-0066 or email@example.com. You'll be very glad you did!
Poor Tiny Tim was found just before Christmas in a resident’s back yard loudly crying for help. We believe that this little black and brown tabby kitten became separated from his mother and somehow survived alone outdoors -- a true Christmas Miracle! See him in action in his video.
Timmy's estimated age is four months now and he’s been deemed healthy, having had his first two rounds of shots. He's set to be neutered soon. He's growing well, from 20 ounces when found to 5 pounds already. He’s using his litter box perfectly, sleeping on or next to his foster, and cuddling on his fosters' laps.
Like good kittens everywhere, Timmy loves catnip toys, balls and cardboard boxes. He's an athletic player and chaser. His perfect match would be a home with another young cat or kitten playmate, with humans who have the energy and patience a kitten requires.
Tiny Tim is now ready for visitors! Please text Lonnie Painter at 949-533-7947. You'll be very glad you did!
We have a sweet girl cat who needs some love. Chloe is 6 years old. She's mostly white with gray and brown tabby markings, and big greenish eyes. She's vet-checked, up-to-date on shots, and healthy.
Chloe likes people. Once she gets to know you, she might sit at your feet and put a paw up for attention. She's also vocal and likes to chit chat. Meow? Meow. And she's a snuggler. She likes to sit on her foster's lap while watching TV. Chloe also likes playing with small toys -- she tosses and fetches her mice and balls. She likes brushing and petting too. See Chloe's video to see her in action.
Chloe is newly in the Cat Club’s care because her beloved human had to relocate and could not bring her along. She needs a new best friend who will give her all the love and companionship she's used to getting.
To meet sweet friendly Chloe, contact Judy Myton at 612-425-6125 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll be very glad you did!
Pretty girl Julie just turned 5 years old. As a youngster, Julie's alert and full of fun. She's a short-haired tabby with warm brown hair and big greenish eyes. See her video.
Her owner is no longer able to care for her so Julie needs a new forever home. She likes playing with small toys, petting and brushing attention, and hanging out watching the action from her cat tower. She's been vet-checked, is current with her shots, and is a healthy young cat girl.
Julie's curious and independent but does appreciate affection too. Her foster says Julie warmed up to him quickly, and likes to stay near him. She's a little princess and likes to sleep at the end of his bed. He says she will make a great companion cat.
This sweet petite girl is really just what you have always looked for in a feline friend. If you would like to meet Julie, contact Gina Hall at 949-330-0892 or email@example.com. You'll be very 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 his/her care. On this basis, we reserve the right to deny an application. However, it is because we are so thorough that 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.
Our Adoption Process
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 your 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.
