Cats & Kittens
Cats available for adoption
Kip was one of a number of cats living with a caring family in Los Angeles. For years, they have provided a safe and healthy home to “stray” cats left in their yard. When we can, PZF tries to help them by bringing a cat or two to our shelter to find homes. Kip enjoys living with the cats in his community room at PZF, and is the epitome of an “omega” cat. This is what we call cats that willingly do as the others request to maintain harmony. He finally afforded Eddy, our big silly boy, a playmate after he realized big Eddy was just playful. Joy has returned to the community room thanks to Kip. They stalk each other and run to be chased and wrestle. Kip is gentle, very sweet and ADORES people. He just loves to be held and stroked and played with by human friends. He is just about the easiest cat we have ever seen. He would be a lovely companion to respectful children, other cats, and all adults. His sense of play combined with sweetness will make him an excellent companion for any and all. Never had a cat before? Kip is your “starter cat,” and will show you how life can never be complete again without a cat.
Isabel is an affectionate cat, who has gone through a few changes in her life. She was surrendered to a shelter by her owner September 2018 and adopted soon thereafter. Within a week, she came back to the shelter, as that home didn’t work out. We met her in January, and found her living in a community room with a number of other adult cats. When we approached Isabel, she rolled onto her back for a belly rub. She was talkative, and quite amicable, so she came to join the PZF family. A physical exam revealed a soft mass on her lower back, which the lab reported as benign. Since she needed a dental cleaning, the mass was removed at the same time without any complication. Repeat lab results on the tissue were consistent with the earlier ones. Several weeks of cage rest seemed to dampen her enthusiasm for coming out and interacting with the cats in her new common room but she continued to respond to volunteers with purrs. Isabel began coming out more on her own and with each passing day her mojo is returning. She is peaceful with her cat neighbors and a conversationalist with anyone who wishes to chat. Isabel still purrs in response to any form of affection. Isabel would be a wonderful companion in a home with adults who enjoy a sweet and interactive adult.
Andrea was turned into the shelter with her three 6-week old kittens. This beautiful young cat joined us at the end of January. She was very sweet about being examined and and allowed her kittens to be separated for their own exams without issue. All of them were very friendly, clean, and interacted with people readily. We sensed that she had just lost a home she trusted. The kittens were already weaned and eating solid food, so they were taken to a foster home in order to allow what little milk Mom was still producing to subside. When that occurred, Andrea understandably missed them dearly. She had transitioned from a home to shelter, to our cages in less than a week, and simply needed some R&R and individual attention. She went to live in a loving, quiet foster home for awhile. Andrea is now back at PZF, and needs to have a permanent home where her intelligence and sweetness will be valued. We believe she is a youngster herself, as she has a lot of kitten curiosity and energy. She is extremely self-confident, and explores her area without fear. She met our dog volunteer, and touched noses, and had no trouble sharing space. This beautiful young cat is just waiting to grace the home of people who are looking for their cat version of a BFF. Would that be you?
Dee Dee was an owner surrender. She was clearly taken care of and friendly with people so we decided to take her “home” with us. After just a short time, Dee Dee didn't seem very happy living in a shelter environment so we placed her in a foster home to see how she would do. Who doesn't love all the comforts of home? She is an extremely confident lady, and exemplifies “tortitude.” Dee Dee is very happy to be loved by humans, explores her home with curiosity, and enjoys having conversations with her people. In fact, she enjoys her people so much she prefers not to share them. Are you looking for a PURRfect companion? Dee Dee just may be the one for you!
Eddy is like a big toddler. At only about a (guesstimated) year old, he seeks out play with other cats like a middle-school age boy would. Jump and bump, run! He needs activity, and is just great with toys on a stick, or anything, really, that gets him chasing. Eddy does crave affection, and even the occasional belly rub. Once he exits full “play mode”, he will lie in your arms and soak up love for as long as you'll have him. We’re sure Eddy will be calling to you from our community cat room.
We picked up Autumn from a city shelter after her owner turned her in without any information. While her history is a mystery one thing is clear, this gal is mild mannered and incredibly easy to handle. On the car ride from the shelter she just curled up and enjoyed the ride. Autumn gets along fabulously with other cats. She loves people and takes advantage of any opportunity to show her affection. If you are looking for a sweet cat that loves to be loved, Autumn is the one!
I went to a home with another cat and it turns out, I play too rough. When I was a little one I suffered an injury that required I be on cage rest. I didn’t get the opportunity to learn from my littermates so it’s best that I remain your one and only. I am quite fond of humans and I will give you lots of love so I'm really all the cat you need. I promise! I’m a confident fella and perfectly fine laying back while you work your way to me. As a result, I tend to be overlooked for the cuddly kittens and playful adults. I am really smart, and love challenges and to challenge the volunteers in return. One of my favorite games is hide-n-seek. I hide in closets, on top of cabinets, and watch the humans search for me. I play hard to get but rattle those Temptations treats and I am down quick as can be. I have lots of fun helping in the office, I am determined to find out what makes that machine spit out paper. It’s great fun but it never wants to play as long as I do. I am not afraid of dogs, I am around the office dog and while we are not close friends we can share the same big room in peace. No other cats, and no small children would be my purrfect home. Are you a kind human? I would love to be your friend. I am low maintenance and watching the world go by through a sunny window makes me as happy as a clam as does being brushed till my coat is shiny.
