My brother and I have had a “textured” childhood so far. Every change was an improvement, however, thanks to PZF. We were born into a small, mostly feral group of cats in an apartment complex in Wilmington where PZF is helping folks catch and "fix" the adults. Mom was one of the cats trapped and fixed, and was recuperating in the volunteer’s garage for a couple of days. Meanwhile, we were getting hungry! We surprised the neighbors the next day by creeping out from hiding, crying for our Mom. Just us two boys, still too young to eat solid food; so the PZF volunteer took us home to feed. When we had our first check up at about 4 weeks of age, we were found to be in the beginning stages of ringworm. Weekly medicated baths and daily medicine did not smell or taste good at all, but we felt loved and full and safe, so it was a good trade – all things considered. After weeks of this routine (longer than twice our age at rescue!), our lab test showed no ringworm. Yay! Right away we got fixed, and now we are ready for our next step in the right direction – a permanent home. Even though we are gray tabbies, somebody told us that Grandpa may have been a Siamese cat because we have long bodies, legs and tails, and wedge-shaped faces with big ears. Grandma may have been an Abyssinian cat, because our fur has a ticked pattern, especially Mason's. We slept in our rescuer’s bed after she was pretty sure the ringworm was gone, and run to people to be held and played with. We love each other deeply, and play for hours together. Could we be the perfect kittens? We have been saved from a dicey situation to a great place – let our next place be your perfect home.

My past remains my secret. But here’s a hint: My sisters, brother and I wound up in the shelter, about 7 weeks old, and were really scared of humans. If you will imagine a little, our mom must have been a street cat, and decided to have us in somebody’s yard. When we were old enough to be weaned and eat on our own, “Whoosh!” we were caught up and taken to the shelter. Very scary! Yet in truth, that was our lucky day. PZF took the four of us from the shelter to get used to humans while we grew large enough to be fixed and find a home. We were too shy and “hidey” for a foster home, so we got the “immersion treatment” at PZF. So many volunteers held us daily; we got the idea pretty fast that humans are OK creatures! We all learned to get along with people, and my sisters and brother found homes. I came down with a cold just at that time, and had to live in a cage alone. Now I am feeling fine again, and want to get my home too! I am sweet as pie, and enjoy love from people now. I play nicely with kittens and cats, and can’t wait to meet my new family. Would that be you?

I have been in a cage for a big part of my young lifetime. I was about 9 months old, living in the street where I didn’t belong, and “whack” a car hit me broadside and broke my pelvis in a few places. I hurt more than anything you could imagine. The good part of this story is that someone very kind saw me lying there, and took me to a shelter that knew to call PZF for help. No matter the agony I was in, I loved all of the kind caregivers when they spoke gently to me and rubbed under my chin or petted my head. Who knew people were so wonderful? PZF took me in from the shelter, and named me “Abba” because of the song “Take a Chance on Me.” Literally months passed, and my pelvis mended slowly, albeit on-schedule. With my injuries, there was a possibility that I would have permanent difficulties. But I showed everyone what a strong and healthy young lady I am, and happily, I walk just fine, and there are no residual side effects to my injuries. I went into heat after a few weeks, which delayed the healing process. (Thanks a bunch, Mother Nature.) I have since been spayed without any complications. I am beautiful, and also very responsive to loving. Because I had been medically restricted to a small cage for so long, I was getting pretty impatient. I wanted to get on with my life and find my forever family! So, I’m making up for some lost time. I love to play, and I crave affection and attention. I’m a very smart cat and I’m self-confident, maybe even a little bossy. But if you would like a devoted lifetime companion who is affectionate, smart and so beautiful – I could be your girl! I would very much like to meet you. I am available for adoption, without constraints. Won’t you please “Take a Chance on Me?”

My sister Jessie and I were found playing on some railroad tracks in Montebello when we were six weeks old. PZF had an opening for us, so here we came. We were outgoing, loving, and got along well with the other cats and kittens. After being returned from our first home due to severe allergies on the people’s part, Jessie and I went our separate ways to new homes. After 18 months, my second adopter left me outside a shelter in a carrier. I had gotten along well with the other cats in that home, so I don’t know why she would do that. Thank goodness I had a microchip. The PZF folks were called, and took me right back. I am in perfect condition, if I do say so myself. I am not the least bit scared or unsocial. I still get along with all friendly cats and kittens, and I really, really like to play with string toys and engage with the volunteers. I am confident, but not bossy. The volunteers ay I'm a perfect companion, a “push-button cat”. Never had a cat? No problem. I'm easy. Have lots of cats? No problem. I'm easy. All I ask for is a home where I can stay for my lifetime, and be loved for the gentle and beautiful soul I am. I am only two years old, and have a lot of time to spend with you. Please make my third home a charm.

I was a 4 month-old kitten, when something happened to break my hind leg. Someone found me on the street, limping and a little dirty, and brought me to the city shelter. They x-rayed my leg, and saw it was not a bad fracture, and that it could heal while I held still in a cage for a few weeks. “Are you kidding me? Hold still for a few weeks?” The PZF people came to take me to their place to hold still. Holding still was very hard, and I was not the best patient. I was a rowdy little guy, and really needed to play. I still do! What young guy doesn’t? They noticed that the fur on the tip of my tail was all dried into a paintbrush shape, and worried that there was something wrong. A bath revealed nothing of concern, and the fur dried fluffy and nice. The next morning, my tail tip was a dried paintbrush again. What was happening? A clever volunteer watched me from afar, and discovered that I suck my tail like a thumb. Once my leg healed I became a little tornado of playing. My favorite past times included irritating the adult cats, tussling with the other young cats, and generally being a brat. (They love me the most at PZF.) I am fearless and quite confident. I've started to settle down a bit but still love to play. They call me a diamond in the rough. A little more polishing and I will be your shining friend forever.

We were only three days old when someone turned us into the shelter, so I can’t tell you much about my origins. My littermates and I quickly were taken to live with a PZF foster Mom who taught us how to nurse out of a bottle. We were not star pupils, and she really had to work to help us get the hang of it. One of the adult cats who lives there also started as a foster kitten, and he is a terrific care giver. He jumped right into her lap, and by settling each of us in turn onto his fur, we felt much more at home in nursing. Fast-forward a few weeks. We all reached the age and weight where we could go back to PZF and seek our fortunes in new, forever homes. We lived with little girls, big dogs, and lots of activity in our home, so not much surprises us. We love to play together, be held and cuddled by people, and were happy to meet the doggy volunteer at PZF. Because we are little, we will need another kitten to go home with for comfort and friendship. If the home comes equipped with a kitten-adoring pet already, we are open to that as well.

My people turned me in to the county shelter, but I have NO IDEA why! I have perfect manners, get along with my cat friends, and adore people. I think they just wanted a kitten, and when I grew, they checked me back in like a library book. Well, that is behind me. Moving on… I was starting to get a respiratory infection, and that is a really bad thing to happen in the shelter. The PZF people saw what a sweet cat I am, and arranged to have me come and live with them. After a while, with daily doses of some icky medicine, good food and lots of love and encouragement, I was back to my original healthy self. Once I was able to join the multi-cat housing, I showed my very nice interactive skills. Are you interested in a perfect cat? I am also humble, as all cats are. (Inside joke!) Really, though, I mostly want to have a home of my own again, with people to love, who will also love me as a valued member of their family, which means for all my life, not just a few months. You will fall in love when you spend a little time with me – I am confident, playful and sweet. Who could ask for anything more?

I was turned into the shelter as a “stray.” Oh, the humiliation! I was NOT a stray! My fur was clean and beautiful, and I wasn’t dirty or skinny. I was and am gorgeous. Humph! What I was, was scared stiff. I never bit or scratched, but rolled into a little ball when anyone picked me up. The PZF folks got me out because I had a little respiratory infection, and needed some peace and quiet. Within a day, my nose stopped running, and everything was hunky dory. Except I was still pretty scared. After about a week, I decided to come out of my little cage tent and peek around. Then I walked around and jumped up onto the shelf in my cage. Now I am cautious, but do like to be chucked under the chin and have my cheeks rubbed. Still in the cage, please. I am available to go home with someone experienced at helping kitties gain confidence. My sweetness will always remain as my self-confidence builds. Come and meet me – see if you are my Prince/Princess Charming. I will be your Beauty for a lifetime.

Oh my goodness! There were kittens everywhere at the shelter! At five weeks old, our litter of four was in danger, because so many people had turned in kittens that there were not enough rooms at the inn. They asked PZF if we could go to them and grow some more until they found real forever homes for us. Boy, did we hit the jackpot. We went immediately to a foster home where we could run around, zoom up and down a cat tree, and get loved by the foster family and the little girls who lived next door. It didn’t take long for us to grow; we were so healthy, and got lots of loving and exercise. We use the litter box without error, are fairly tidy for kittens, and eat and drink without fuss. Now we are ready to find our permanent homes. We all play well together, and of course would love to go with a brother or sister to continue our life together. We are social, sweet, and never-ending entertainment.

I was a neighborhood cat; enjoying the people and especially the nice food and fresh water they gave me. Unfortunately, I was also enjoying an active kitty social life, and one night I just threw caution to the winds. Several weeks later, four babies appeared. Uh-oh! Did I mention that I was smart? My favorite person had left her door ajar, and that was just the opportunity I needed. I carried my new babies inside, very pleased to announce that she had guests. Oops! That was another misstep in planning. The two cats that lived inside immediately voiced their serious displeasure in our moving in, and we needed immediate relocation. PZF was able to take us in, and we lived in a really nice foster home. After my kittens were weaned, I came to PZF to be fixed and find a permanent indoor home. I am very composed and lady-like. I socialized well with other friendly cats at PZF, and also enjoyed the people in my foster home and the PZF volunteers as well. While I am not busy and really active, I am a sweet and calm friend for anyone needing a more spiritual cat. This has been a strange journey, and I will blossom when I find my perfect destination and person.
