Pretty girl Julie just turned 5 years old. As a youngster, Julie's alert and full of fun. She's a brown short-haired tabby who is independent but does like affection too. Her foster says Julie will make a great companion. She's been vet-checked, is current with her shots, and is a healthy young cat girl.
Julie has lived with a dog and they got along well. She’d likely be open to living with another dog. Julie likes small toys, petting and brushing attention, and hanging out watching the action from her cat tower which will go with her to her forever home. See more Julie in her video.
This sweet kitty is really just what you have always looked for in your cat companion. If you would like to meet pretty Julie, contact Gina Hall at 949-330-0892 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll be very glad you did!
Bonded pair CJ (mostly gray) and Charlie (some tabby markings) might be half-brothers or step brothers, but either way they have been together for many years and they want to stay together. CJ is 10; Charlie is 12. Both are microchipped and are up-to-date on vetting and their shots.
Both boys (especially CJ) have all the size and fluff that comes with being Maine Coon cats. Maine Coons are also known for their affectionate, playful natures, and these two are no exception. Charlie, especially, is a lovebug who welcomes snuggles. CJ is a little shyer, but also enjoys petting and having his long hair brushed. See the boys in action in their video.
The boys are newly in the Cat Club’s care due to the recent death of their beloved human. They need a new forever home with all the love they are used to getting.
To meet these lovable fluffguys, contact Sally North at 818-326-9526 or email@example.com. You'll be very glad you did!
In early October, little Cleo was seen 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.
She is a small kitty, and the vet says she's about 5 years old although she appears younger. Cleo has short warm brown hair with tabby stripes, white on her face, and big greenish eyes. See Cleo in action in her video.
Cleo is a healthy young cat and is all up-to-date on her shots. She had already been spayed. She is a loving, friendly cat who adjusts quickly to new environments. Cleo's likes include pets 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!

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 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.
