April

April

Hi! My name is April! I'm a tiny bit shy when you first meet but once we get to know each other I'm super sweet. I love other kitties. In fact, I'm having a little love affair with my kitty furiend Button at Petco. I'm looking for a family that will continue to work with me to build my kitty confidence and where I'll have a kitty playmate. Ready to meet me?

Ash

Ash

Hi! I'm Ash! I'm chatty, playful and very sweet. I'd love to be adopted with another kitty furiend. I tested positive for FIV, but I'm only 4 months old. I can be retested at 6 months and my results may be different, but I don't know for sure. You can learn more about FIV from Cornell University. Even if my results are still positive I can live long healthy lives and can live safely with other cats. Adopt me with a furiend!

Beastly

Beastly

Hi! I'm Beastly! Don't be fooled by my name I'm a pawesome hunk of love! I get along with everyone and am probably one of the most easy going cats you might ever meet. I adjust easily to new situations and am basically super cool. The folks at Give Me Shelter think I might be a Japanese Bobtail cat mix. That's pretty cool if you ask me. Check them out on the Internet to see how much I look like one.

Concerned about me being FIV+? Here's some great reading material from Cornell University to free you of any worries. I can live a long healthy life and safely with other cats.  Ready to meet me?

Some things about me, I get along with other cats obviously. I'm on the shy side, so I'm looking for a family to be patient with me and help me build my kitty confidence. I promise that if you take the time to work with me it'll totally be worth it and I will love you forever. Take me home!

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?

Hello people! My name is Delilah. Here I am! Lots of purrsonality!  I am playful and very affectionate!  As you can see I probably should lose a couple of pounds.  Will you help me with my workouts? I should go to a cat savvy, adult household because sometimes I can be a bit much. Ready to meet me?

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

Harley

Hi! We are Harley (female) and Mini Cooper (male, white nose)! We are litter mates and good buddies. We get along well with the resident cats in our home too. While we'd love to be adopted together, it's most important that we are adopted with a buddy that enjoys playing with us. 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!

Hi! My name is Jamie! I was rescued from a hoarding situation. I lived with 25 other cats! Yes, it's true! I think it's safe to say I get along well with other cats. I can be a little shy with humans, but playing is a great way to build trust with me. Would you be willing to give me a chance?

Kiki

Kiki

Hi! My name is Kiki! I was surrender to Sonoma Shelter when my person had to move to assisted living and couldn't take me with them back in July. I came to the shelter with 3 other kitties that were already adopted. When the fires broke out in early October I was transfered to SFACC. As you can imagine all these changes were quite stressful for me. Lucky for me, Give Me Shelter was able to take me into their program and now I'm decompressing in a foster home. I'm looking for a family with patience to give me time to come out of my shell and blossom. Could that be you?

Oscar

Oscar

Hello! My name is Oscar! I am living in a foster home because I am FIV+ and can be very bossy with other cats (I would prefer to have all the attention and food to myself, thank you). Aside from FIV, I am a healthy and happy cat (I just had some dental work done) that would like to find a loving human to grow old with. My foster parents think that I am mix between a domestic American Bobtail and Siamese, because my tail is only about half length, I have clear blue eyes, and my fur has seal-and-blue color tones across my back and flanks. My left ear is a little frayed around the edges, and I have a unique dark spot in the middle of my back. I am truly one-of-a-kind, you will never find another cat that looks like me! At first I spook a little easily and would like a private place to call my own, but if you have some treats available, I will readily come out to greet you because I have a voracious appetite for anything tasty. I also LOVE getting the top of my head and back of my neck scratched; aside from food that is my most favorite thing in the whole world. I am also a talented cat; my talents include: basking in the sun, youthfully playing with a variety of cat toys, informing you of the time of day (such as breakfast time, lunch time, dinner time and snack time) and last but not least: keeping your lap warm whenever you need to sit down and relax. I am also ok with large dogs, as long as they don’t try to rough-house with me and give me a chance to settle in. My ideal home would include a window that lets some sun in to a spot where I can bask, no other cats, and a family that can be mindful of my feeding portions (free-choice feeding will make me overweight and I could develop health problems such as arthritis and feline diabetes). So, do you need a lap-warmer to keep you company this winter and every winter here forth? I am so eager to hear from you, so please apply to take me home!

Paul

Paul

Hi! My name is Paul. I look pretty sad, I know. I came into the shelter in Lodi as a lost kitty.  Fortunately, things are looking up for me now though that Give Me Shelter took me in. Now I get a second chance at love. A little more about me from my foster mom...

"He's a very sweet cat. He loves to play with his toys several times a day, and scratch the upright cat scratcher. He has climbed up all the places where he can climb up and sit high in my apartment. He's a big boy with a tiny little chirp of a voice.

He does weave in front of my feet especially when I arrive home. I assume to get some attention and say "hi". I have to navigate around him until he's done saying "hi". I do have to watch out that I don't bump or step on him either when he's weaving around me or when he lays down right behind me when I'm at the kitchen counter.

He does like to lay down near me when I'm home, but he doesn't seem to be a lap cat.  He is tempted to think my fingers and toes might be a cat toy, especially when those fingers are holding a cat toy wand. But, when I say "no" and move my fingers and toes away, he doesn't pursue them, tempting as they might be. As I mentioned before, he does kneed my stomach, and then sometimes "love nips" can ensue."

What in the world are you waiting for? Adopt me already!

Rookie

Rookie

Hi! My name is Rookie! I'm a sweet and social girl that enjoys lap time. The thing I'm not sure I'm a fan of is other cats. You see I was always an only cat and then my family surrendered me to the shelter. It's been a little stressful being with so many felines and not enough space of my own. I won't rule out being with other cats, but it certainly has to be the right cat dynamic and slow introductions. Of course, if I had my choice...I'd be your one and only. Please give me a second chance!

Hi! My name is Salvatore! I'm a super sweet boy. I was rescued by Give Me Shelter and they found me a home, but sadly my person died. Lucky for me, I'm now getting a 3rd chance! I get along great with other cats and am very affectionate. Here are the kitties I lived with - Wiggins, Bucket and Button. What are you waiting for? Adopt me!

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.

Hi! My name is Sandy! Sadly, I ended up at the shelter because my person died. As you can imagine, I was pretty scared and confused. Lucky for me, now I'm in a foster home. I'd sure love a family who will give me time to feel safe and loved again. Could that be you?

Hi! My name is Seven! I'm a real sweet girl and am a BIG fan of chin scratches. Sadly, my person became ill and was no longer able to care for me, but lucky for me Give Me Shelter gave me a second chance. Now all I need is a loving family to adopt me. Could that be you?

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.

Tabitha

Hi! My name is Tabitha! I'm a sweet and shy girl. The folks at Give Me Shelter suspect I might be part Abyssinian. What do you think? I'm pretty vocal and like to talk a lot. When I get nervous I can meow up a storm. If you're looking for a quiet cat keep on looking. If you want a chatty girl then here I am! I'm slow to warm up but very sweet once I do. I also get along well with other kitties. Ready to meet me?
