You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.If youre working for home or just playing it safe by practicing social distancing, now is a perfect time to bring a new furry family member into the fold. Email us any questions about any cats we have and we will be happy to provide any additional information you may need. If you are approved for adoption, we are now doing curbside adoptions in order to minimize contact.
Esperenza was brought to us in a box, almost lifeless. Thankfully with care, she has improved each day and is now physically very healthy. She does show indications that she may have been unsocialized prior to her rescue, so she will require a quiet, very patient home.
She is very loving with her caregiver, then will run to safety. We think with the proper set up, she can become a loving companion! She is very curious about other cats, and seems to enjoy them, so thats a bonus if you have one.
Shes estimated at 2 years old although shes a petite 6 pounds currently.

We are accepting multiple applications for this very special girl. She deserves the perfect home!

While we try to keep our animal listings up-to-date online, sometimes the age range may be labelled incorrectly. Please dont hesitate to contact us for the most up-to-date information on a particular cat.
Our cats are shown by appointment - we are a foster based rescue and so we dont have a location with set hours.

If you are interested in adopting or would like to meet our cats, please fill out our adoption application online at
