Acorn

Acorn

Hi! We are Ambercup and Acorn! We are besties and attached at the hip! We have been since the beginning. We love to play, are affectionate, sweet and snuggly! If you're looking for the purrfect pair of girl kitties - here we are! Just a little note about Ambercup's eye. She's not sad, she was born with it that way and it doesn't bother her one bit. So what are you waiting for?!?! Adopt us already!

Ben

Ben

Hi! We're Ben and Georgie! We were abandoned in someone's backyard in the Central Valley. Fortunately, Give Me Shelter scooped us up, got us neutered and vetted. Now we're ready for the big time - a loving forever home. What could be better than one mini Panther? TWO, of course. We are bonded BFFs, adopt us together!

Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi! My name is Bernadette or Bernie for short! I came from a hoarding situation where I lived with 26 other cats! Can you believe it? It's true! 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!

Betty Boop

Betty Boop

Hi! My name is Betty Boop, but you can call me Betty for short! I'm on the shy side when I first meet you, but once I trust you I am 100% sweet! I even enjoy tummy rubs. I get along great with my kitty furiends and would love a playmate in my forever home. Could you give a shy cat a chance and adopt me?

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?

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!

Jamie

Jamie

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?

Kiwi

Kiwi

Hi! My name is Kiwi! I'm a BIG, sweet boy! I'm lovable, affectionate and quit handsome if I don't say so myself. For a BIG guy, I have a tiny mew. I get along with my kitty furiends and am an all around easy cat. Ready to meet me?

Lacey Luna

Lacey Luna

Hi! I'm Lacey Luna! The way to my heart is by brushing and feeding me! However, don’t think you will get to brush me right off the bat. I'm very hand shy until I get to know you. But everyday in my foster home I am overcoming my shyness and having a blast!

Though I try to look and act tough, I am a silly kitty at heart. I love to be brushed and fed, run around everywhere playing, and have the cutest meow you ever did hear! I also get along great with my kitty furiends!

I'm a BIG kitten. I am super curious, discovering things for the first time! That is after I am relaxed with my surroundings. I am looking for a patient cat savvy forever home, that will take the time and effort to help me blossom! Could that be with you?

Moana

Moana

Hi! My name is Moana and I'm a totally lovable girl! It's true! My foster mom loved me a lot. Here's what she said about me!

"Is your house too quiet? Your cats never talk back? No worries about that with the LOVE that is Moana. She talks right back to you, answers all questions, and gives hugs and chin thunks to make sure you understand just how much she loves you. She’s wonderful with children, people of all ages, other cats and dogs. She didn’t pay any attention to the bird or the bunny either. Box trained, and is learning to come when called. She is truly the most wonderful and amazing love of a cat I’ve ever had the opportunity to foster."

Ready to take me home?

Sam

Sam

Hi! My name is Sam! I’m a very sweet cat who loves people. I’m a little cautious with new faces but once I know you, we’ll be best friends! I currently live with other cats. I like them but I’d rather snuggle with my humans… on your lap or right next to you in bed! I like to act very cute and roll around to get your attention and get you to pet me. Also, I never complain or beg for food (even though I like it). Check out my video below!

Sandy

Sandy

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?

Simone

Simone

Hi! My name is Simone! I can be a little bit shy when you first meet me but warm up quickly. I love to  snuggle under the blankets and I really enjoy gentle pets. Don't be surprised if you don't see me in my condo because I'm under the blankets. Just lift them up and say hello and give me a little pet. I promise I will love you forever if you just give me a chance. I would really benefit from a quiet home. Could I be your one and only?

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.

Just ask the folks at Give Me Shelter and they'll tell you about them. I promise the extra care you give me will be totally worth it! I'd prefer to be your one and only. What do you think? Could we be a match?

Tiger

Tiger

Hi! My name is Tiger! I'm the purrfect mix of an independent yet affectionate kitty. I'm easy going, but would pretty much like to be your one and only. I've got a great purrsonality though so you won't miss having a second cat. What do you think? Ready to meet me?

Tommy

Tommy

Hi! My name is TOMMY! I'm a BIG BIG boy and total lover boy! I get along well with my kitty furiends, too. I'm 100% lap cat and pretty much just a COOL CAT! I tested positive for FIV at a local shelter and they weren't going to make me available. Really? Don't they know the latest studies from Cornell University show I can live a long healthy life and safely with other cats. Are you ready to meet a totally pawesome cat???

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?

Walker

Walker

Hi! My name is Walker! I came to Give Me Shelter because my person lost their housing, but lucky for me they searched and searched until they found a rescue to take me. You see, I'm a BIG sweet boy, but I have a history of urinary tract issues so I'm a special prescription diet to keep me healthy. I haven't had any issues since being on the diet. I love to eat, so I'm looking for a family that will make sure I don't eat to much and be committed to my special diet. In return, I promise to love you! I'm a BIG, sweet, lovable boy and a total lap cat. I've lived a cat friendly Great Dane before and I am living with a big cat friendly dog in my foster home. I haven't had exposure to other cats, but I'm really enough of a love bug for anyone that you won't need another cat anyways. Ready to meet me?
