Joely is a beautiful, sleek dark gray tuxedo full of fun and curiosity. According to her foster, she’s a happy 3 year old, very active and curious. She enjoys investigating closets and other things around the house. Spends a lots of time sitting on top of her climbing tree watching the world go by and dozing like all good kitties do.
Joely enjoys a cuddle and being brushed, but not a lap cat as yet. She likes to sleep with you and definitely wants to be where her foster is. She loves to play – chasing for treats and talks back to you when told no!! But then, don’t most 3-year olds? She may take a while to get used to you, but she can be that loving companion you are looking for. Joely would do best without dog and it’s unknown about children. She has been checked out by our vet and is up-to-date on all shots and healthy as can be. To make arrangements to visit Joely, please contact
Bev Elwell at: 215-896-7054 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll be very happy 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.comand 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 Club would appreciate a minimum donation of $50.00.
This video is the story of the 18 cats the Laguna Woods Cat Club took into our program this past year. We were able to find loving homes for each and every one of these precious kitties. Please have a look at the cats that were saved by ADOPTION. Thanks for your on-going support and Happy New Year.

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.
