Hi! My name is Becca and when you first meet me I'll be a little cautious and shy. But it doesn't take long to win me over. Once we are friends I'm a big fan of belly rubs. Ready to make me part of your family?

Becky

Becky

THIS IS COURTESY LISTING for FAMILY DOG RESCUE (This is not a Give Me Shelter kitty)

Contact to ADOPT: adopt@ilovefamilydog.org

Meet Becky! Becky is about one year old, and was brought to Family Dog Rescue as a tiny kitten with her siblings, after a volunteer found them abandoned in a box. She was adopted quickly, but having been separated from her mother too young, Becky has been having some trouble adjusting to living in a home. While she can be very sweet and cuddly, she likes to decide for herself when she wants to be social and when she wants to withdraw and chill by herself. For this reason, she was not thriving in the adopters' one-bedroom apartment, where she had no place to go when she got overstimulated. Becky was surrendered back to Family Dog, to give her the chance to find a family with more kitty-experience, and with more room for her to set her own agenda.

Beverly

Beverly

Hi! My name is Beverly and I'm a rare orange female! I was a lost kitty in San Francisco and was sort of scared in the city shelter. I love to be loved but am not quite sure I trust people completely yet. I'm looking for a loving, compassionate and patience person to give me a home. A person who it cat savvy and will give me space to come out of my shell. I promise it will be worth your patience because deep down I'm a total love bug. Would you be the one to give me a chance?

Chellbear

Chellbear

I'm a rare orange female. Most orange tabbies are male, which means I’m basically a plush tangerine unicorn. I was abused and neglected, so I can be sensitive to loud noises and sudden movements. I'm looking for a quiet home and a long term relationship with a cat savvy adopter who will understand my cat body lingo and listen to me. That said, I adore attention and human companionship, and will open up if you have a little patience. Will you help me trust again?

Cherry Tart

Cherry Tart

Hi! My name is Cherry Tart! I'm a tiny bit shy and a whole bunch of sweet! I love to play, get along with my kitty furiends and am a super snuggler with the right person that knows how to bring that out of me. I'd love to have a kitty playmate in my forever home. Since I'm a tiny bit shy I'd really love a family that will help me continue to build my kitty confidence. Ready to take me home?

Cocoa Bean

Cocoa Bean

Hi! My name is Cocoa Bean but my foster mom calls me Cocoa Puff since I'm so adorable and fluffy. I know folks usually says kittens are better in pairs, but I could probably be adopted alone. I love to play with other kittens but am also good at entertaining myself. I do have some naughty kitten habits which my foster mom is working on with me. I do hope if you adopt me you will too. You see, I can be a tiny bit bitey and it's completely playful, but when I'm big it might be too rough for someone. Other than that I am nothing but a sweet, lovable, playful, and confident little fluffy kitten. Take me home!

Diva

Diva

Diva is my name and diva is my game. What can I say? How can anyone not be a fan of THIS beautiful butt? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be around my person. NOT a fan of other cats...let’s be clear here, I am the best. All those other kitties are so below my level. You’d better be savvy cuz I’ll bring the sass. If you make me the queen of your catstle, I’ll look at you like you’re the only star in my sky. I’m searching for a long term relationship with a warm lap and someone who will appreciate the love I have to give and make me their one and only. Take me home!

Harley

Hi! We are Harley and Mini Cooper! We are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. After all, kittens are better in pairs - we play, we keep each other company when you're away and then we snuggle with you when you're home with us. We can be very shy at first and are looking for an experienced adopter to work with us like our foster mom has to help us be confident full grown kitties. Adopt us together!

Oscar

Oscar

Hi! My name is Oscar but they call me Oscar de la Rue since I was rescued from the streets by a Good Samaritan. They took me into their home and I was a snuggle bug. As you can see from my picture I'm a little rough around the edges and am ready for a loving home. Unfortunately, I wasn't a good fit with the resident cats. I played a bit too rough for the finder with her cats so she surrendered me to the shelter. Fortunately for me, Give Me Shelter was able to take me in and now I'm looking for a truly forever home.

Concerned about me being FIV+? Here's some great reading material from Best Friends to ease your mind. I can live a long healthy life. Could you give me a chance?

Princess Buttercup

Princess Buttercup

Hi! My name is Princess Buttercup and I'm a sweet kitty. Sadly, my person died and I ended up in a high kill shelter *sigh*. I definitely used one of my lives this time because Give Me Shelter rescued me. Now it's my turn for a second chance. I've live with other kitties so I could have a kitty companion or be your one and only. Here's what my foster mom says about me:

I love laying on the coffee table and lounging.
I'm quite chatty in the morning.
I love head and back scratches.
I'm a big fan of canned food.

Ready to meet me? Meow!

Sam

Sam

Hi! My name is Sam! I'm a sweet and shy boy. It takes me a bit to warm up to new people, but I love to play and it's a great way to get to know me. I've also lived with other cats before so I get along with my kitty furiends and get along with the kitties in my foster home. I'd even benefit from a kitty playmate. I'm looking for a family who will go slow with me at my pace. I am also a Manx, what is referred to as a longy. Check out my video where you can see my tail.

Skye

Skye

Hi! My name is Skye! I am super shy. You see, I came from a stressful situation where I lived with squatters so I had no real home. Deep down I'm a sweet kitty that just wants to be loved. I just need to be with someone who is super patient with me and goes at my pace. Someone who will appreciate that I came out of hiding, that I gave a little mew or that my tail was up and I'm happy. I'm highly food motivated so that's a great way to get to know me. I promise if you're patient with me it'll be worth the reward. I can live by myself and do well with kitty furiends too. Please give me a chance.

Tiffany

Tiffany

Hi! My name is Tiffany!  A Good Samaritan found me hanging out at an auto body shop in the San Francisco area. I can be a tiny bit shy initially so I'm looking for a family to work with me to build my kitty confidence. I do want to let you know I'm good with nail trims and stuff like that, I just want someone with patience and who will help me blossom. I do get along with my kitty furiends. As you can see I'm a unique mix of Siamese and Tortoiseshell. Give me a chance and make me your forever kitty.

Tyco

Tyco

Hi! My name is Tyco and I'm a mellow kind of kitty. Sadly, my person passed away and the family was going to leave me outside to fend for myself. Fortunately for me, Give Me Shelter came to my rescue and now I'm living in an awesome foster home. Of course, what I'd really love is my second chance at love with a forever family. Could that be you?

Wile E Coyote

Wile E Coyote

Hi! My name is Wile E Coyote! How'd I get my name? Because I can be a bit naughty. I get along great with my kitty furiends and people. I have the most adorable chirp! I have lots of energy and can get a little amped up and overstimulated. I need a family that understands me. You see, I came from a situation where I was obviously neglected and hands and feet sometimes scare me, but my foster mom is helping me understand they aren't scary. I need a family that will work with me, too. My foster mom has done some clicker training with me and she has taught me how to sit! I'm super smart and social. Just contact the folks at Give Me Shelter to learn more about me and if I might be a good fit for your family.
