The person who also had adopted a PZF kitten several years earlier adopted Dylan from a shelter in Seattle. Both cats were surrendered to a Los Angeles shelter in September of 2016 when their person lost his home. PZF was called about our cat, and took them both back, as they were friends. Dylan was adopted from PZF in about three months, and once again left at a local shelter about a year later for no known reason. Dylan has had a lot of hard luck in his life. At the time he first came to PZF, the shelter personnel pointed out that he had extensive dental disease. His mouth is just fine, but very few teeth could remain as a result of the problem. He is reserved, but very sweet and loving. Dylan has had more than a little bad luck, but his sweetness will help him find the forever home he deserves. He is curious and gentle with other cats, and affectionate with the volunteers. Like the Cowardly Lion, he doesn’t realize that he has courage too.

PZF helps the Wilmington community by paying to have their street cats spayed and neutered. I was in a group of four kittens born to a stray there. When Mom was trapped, we were taken back to PZF to grow up and find real indoor homes and families. My brothers and sisters were confident and outgoing, and adopted right away. I was a bit shyer, and was adopted several weeks later by an elderly woman. I loved her and she loved me. I was very comfortable in her home. It was quiet, with very few visitors. When she needed to move, the relative who had indicated he would be my guardian could not take me, so PZF became my home again. I am very sad to be away from my home and my lady, but am learning to socialize with the other cats in the community cat room as well as the volunteers. I’m cautious at first, but after a while I relax and start to play and purr. I am as gentle and sweet as can be, and would love a very quiet home with or without other cats.

Bobo just appeared one day. An adorable 3-4 month old kitten hanging out in someone’s yard. That someone couldn’t just look the other way. They slowly tamed him then took him in for a check up, some tests and (of course) to be neutered. He’s a sweet boy and just loves being around other cats. Bobo is also dog friendly and great with children. At only 9 months old he is still very playful. If other cats aren’t available he chooses a human.

*** COURTESY POSTING - Peter Zippi Memorial Fund Inc will provide you with the appropriate contact if you are interested in learning more about this fabulous feline. *** Single Orange Male Tabby Cat seeks human companion to share a warm bed and safe home! Ideal candidate will have an open heart, lap and most importantly an open mind. Figaro needs an indoor only home to maintain optimal health. Secure access to an outside area would be fantastic but not required. This gentle guy can absolutely share a home with another gentle cat who is a lover (like him) and not a fighter. The rules of proper introduction always apply. Figaro loves to play with toys and gets along well with other cats. He is friendly and loving with his current people, but has lived outside as a 'stray' most of his life; so he may be a little hesitant in a new environment at first. Can you give him the furever home he's dreaming of?

I must have lived with someone who loved me and escaped to the outside. When I was turned into the shelter as an injured stray, I was very gentle, despite the intense pain of a badly broken leg. It looked like pick-up sticks on my X-ray. They think I lost a fight with a car. All the staff said, even in pain I was a real lover. I needed to go somewhere I could get treatment. PZF came to my rescue! I needed to have my right hind leg amputated. After a recovery free from complications, I can play and love to be loved, especially when you are paying attention to me totally. My fur has grown out and I am so coordinated that it will take a moment before you realize there is only one back leg. I play carefully with other cats and kittens, but I'm scared of the PZF test dog. Now I am in a foster home with two other nice adult male cats, we are a very social threesome. However, I am ready for my permanent home – people to love and interact with, and a cat or two if you have them. Take me home, and I will enjoy being the center of your attention and will give back as much love as I receive.

My brother and sister and I were still nursing when my Mom and us got taken to the shelter. The home we came from must have been very loving, because we already liked to play with people, and Mom had told us that people are just wonderful. The shelter called PZF to see if we all could go there, and they came and got us right away. A nice foster couple was waiting for us, and took everyone right home. We had so much fun there! After a week or so, we all ran out of the door of the nursery whenever anyone came in, so we got to go hiding all over the house. Good thing we were all mostly white a very fluffy – easy to spot! Mom went back to PZF pretty soon, to get fixed. We didn’t think she was broken, but the foster people said, “Never mind.” It wasn’t long before we had grown big enough to be fixed as well, so we found out about that. I had grown old enough by that time for the doctor to see something different with my eyes. She discovered that I have “juvenile cataracts,” and will most probably have little to no vision as I develop into an adult. This does not give me any discomfort, and I will continue to thrive and be happy, adjusting in my own way to interact with the world. I continue to be loving and affectionate with people, and tumble and play together nicely with the other kittens at PZF. I would really do best to be adopted with either one of my brothers. I tend to be a bit more careful before playing, and having a familiar friend for life would be a tremendous benefit. If you are looking for a kitten that feels like a cloud would, loves unconditionally, and has perfect manners, you can meet me PZF. It will be impossible to tell that I am a bit handicapped as you watch me play. I am certain my real people are out there looking for their special girl. When you find me, you will know me.

The shelter called PZF to see if we all could go there, and they came and got us right away. A nice foster couple was waiting for us, and took everyone right home. Well, everyone but me. When the doctor examined me, he found a huge abscess on my hind foot. I had to stay behind in the hospital for a couple of days while it was treated, but I had already shown how smart I was by eating “big kitten food.” I healed quickly and without complication. Within a few days, I got to join my family in foster. We had so much fun there! After a week or so, we all ran out of the door of the nursery whenever anyone came in, so we got to go hiding all over the house. Good thing we were all mostly white a very fluffy – easy to spot!

I continue to be loving and affectionate with people, and tumble and play together nicely with the other kittens at PZF. I need another animal pal to live with because I am just too little to be without that kind of camaraderie. If you are looking for a kitten that feels like a cloud would, loves unconditionally, and has perfect manners, check me out at PZF. Then well, “CHECK ME OUT!” I can’t wait to go home with my real people who are out there looking for me. Would that be you???

My sisters, brother and I wound up in the shelter, about 7 weeks old, and were really scared of humans. 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! My sisters and brother found homes, but I had a harder time getting brave. I loved every cat and kitten I met, and always was sweet and playful when people wanted to love me. I accepted handling reluctantly, and without enjoyment but given time I would relax. Nobody wanted to adopt a shy kitty, no matter how gentle I was. Then I had a miracle! The couple that adopted one of my sisters took me to their home to foster me and see what would happen. Within a week, I was coming when they called (at least 75% of the time), sleeping in their bed, and having a lot of fun with the other cats in their home. My big test was when the son and his family came to stay for a few days. I did not hide, came to greet them, and was a “…brave boy with their boys 2 and 3 years old.” I will stay with them as fosters until someone wants to adopt a beautiful loving cat to come live with them and their other cat(s). I have no bad habits, am very healthy, and finally ready to give people affection willingly. I hope you will try me out in your home.

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 can't seem to shake this bad luck. I was adopted again by a family for their Mom. Unfortunately, her health declined quickly and her back up is not, it tuns out. 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 say 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 fourth home a charm.

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.

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. I hurt worse right then 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. PZF came right over and saved me. They were really kind and I learned that I liked people a whole lot! No matter how much I hurt, I loved all of the caregivers when they spoke gently to me and rubbed under my chin or petted my head. The people from PZF named me “Abba” because of the song “Take a Chance on Me.” I showed everyone what a strong young lady I am. And after a while, because I’m such a healthy girl, my pelvis mended perfectly – with absolutely no side effects!! I am beautiful, and also very responsive to loving. I like to play. I’ve never had a person of my own, but I’m definitely ready to love and be loved. If you would like a lifetime companion who is beautiful, affectionate, smart and very self-confident, I would very much like to meet you. Won’t you please “Take a Chance on Me?”

“Ouch! What happened? Ow ow – my leg!” I was a little 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 remained quiet in a cage for a few weeks. “Are you kidding me? Hold still for weeks?” The PZF people came to take me to their place to heal. Holding still was very hard, but my leg healed perfectly. And now I’m making up for lost time being an active little guy, and I really love to play. 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. Someday I’ll outgrow that, but not yet! A year has passed, and because I have a very confident personality, I tend to be overlooked for the cuddly kittens, and less active adults. I am really smart, and love challenges and to challenge the volunteers in return. Some of my favorite games are hiding in closets, on top of cabinets, and watching them search for me. I have begun learning to walk on a harness, and have lots of fun helping in the office, as I am determined to find out what makes the copier spit out papers. I am fine with the office dog. Well, I bully him a little because he is smaller than I am. I chat with other cats through the screen door of another room, but they need to come to me slowly in person, because I get a little nervous. I would be a lot of fun in a home, probably not with small children, as I wouldn’t be very patient with being held tightly or grabbed by surprise. I still suck my tail, but not very often, and I am the most fun trickster you will meet.
