Cats & Kittens
Cats available for adoption
Spot transferred to us from our friends at Best Friends Animal Society in mid-December. When he’s not busy melting human hearts, he is the “guard of the kitten room” at PZ. Dare the dog volunteer to peek in, Spot is right at the door assuming the Halloween pose and spitting. He is flush with bravado and a natural leader of kittens. This makes him a hilarious play-kitten for the human volunteers. Spot is tireless, well, until he’s tired. Then he loves laps a lot. A former bottle baby, this little fella is super affectionate and has been known to groom our volunteers when the mood strikes him. At his age, it would be best if there were another animal companion in the home to keep him company. Even better would be to adopt his brother Sam as well. They say two cats are better than one and we couldn’t agree more.
Sam transferred to us from our friends at Best Friends Animal Society in mid-December. A former bottle baby, he’s an adorably sweet and social little guy. While Sam loves to play with his kitten pals in our community room we see him as the “Zen” kitten – calm, and very gentle in his approach to newcomers. Sam will make you smile with his playful antics and when the playing is done, he’s a purrr-fect lap warmer. At his age, it would be best if there were another animal companion in the home to keep him company. Even better would be to adopt his brother Spot as well. They say two cats are better than one and we couldn’t agree more.
Cecil came to us from our friends at Best Friends Animal Society. He joined us as a bottle baby and was raised in a loving foster home. This little fella is happy, healthy, confident, and super socialized. Perfect, really! Cecil loves snuggling in a warm lap and getting head rubs. He loves to chase little felt balls, and will play endlessly with any toy on a string! At his young age, he will benefit greatly from having another animal companion. His purrr-fect world includes his brother Beany and you!

Star joined us from an LA City Shelter on November 19th of 2019. She earned her name from a tiny burst of white fur on her chest. This gorgeous house panther had a fractured femur that had gone untreated too long to consider surgery. We placed her into foster care where she could continue healing. Star immediately loved the two resident dogs and the cat. She gets around just fine now. In fact, you’d likely not even know she had an injury as she wrestles with her friends and chases toys in our community room. Star knows no fear, is curious about everything and loves to be cuddled. This little lady is ready for her fur-ever family. Will it be with you?
Kia was rescued near Palos Verdes. She was going to be a TNR with some other cats but after she was spayed they realized she could be friendly. PZ had an opening so we took her in. She needed to learn about trust so our fabulous volunteers have been showing her how great it is to be loved by humans. Now, Kia likes to held and loves to be petted. She also enjoys chasing after feather toys, romping with her friends in our community room napping in the sun. This adorable little house panther has a whole new outlook on life and is ready to find her fur-ever home. Could it be with you?
White Sox joined us back in September when a local city shelter reached out for assistance. This gorgeous young lady had arrived with a spinal fracture and needed private medical care. No one knows exactly what happened to cause such a traumatic injury but she was already healing well. White Sox had to be confined to a cage to continue the healing process. All the while she maintained a wonderfully loving spirit and did really well. She is active and shows no signs of any issues with her back legs. The end half of her tail does appear to lack sensation but that doesn't slow her down. She enjoys running, jumping and playing with all of the cats in her shared space. We all agree that she is one of the most observant and brightest kittens we have taken in. White Sox is ready for her fur-ever home and a fabulous life. Will it be with you?
Angie is a gorgeous tuxedo girl with a playful spirit. She runs at full speed with her kitten companions until snap, she’s asleep. Angie came to us on Labor Day from the streets of our community when some of our finest firemen noticed her Mama hadn’t returned for her and her siblings. At approximately 9 days old, she needed help to survive. We had space available and placed her in foster care with one of our best bottle-feeders. Under her expert care, Angie thrived and is now ready for her fur-ever home. She is super friendly and affectionate. At her young age, she needs to go to a home with another animal companion that she can learn with. If you do not have another animal companion in the home please consider adopting one of her siblings or friends at our shelter. Two kittens are better than one!
Georgina came to us from a city shelter on April 26th. All four of her foot bones were broken on her left hindfoot. Georgina did not share with us what had happened. Tiny pins were inserted down the center of each of Georgina's foot bones, and after 6 weeks of healing in the proper alignment, the pins were removed in a very simple procedure, followed by two more weeks in a splint. Georgina underwent uncomfortable weekly wound cleaning, followed by dressing and splint changes throughout this time. Our fabulous fosters took her for her weekly hospital visits and kept her at their home through her post-op recovery and care. Georgina then lived in two more foster homes for “rehab” recovery and one last surgery to spay her. In each of the homes, she has made herself comfortable on laps and demonstrated she is able to get along with other cats non-aggressively. Georgina has been calm, sweet and compliant, and despite all the painful tests, procedures and surgeries, she has never once expressed any negative behavior. She now has full use of her foot, which is a little inflexible, but she leaps and runs with no trouble. Confident and resilient, she would also be fine with respectful children and dogs.
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. I play hard to get sometimes 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. 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. Ace is currently residing in a foster home, please call or email to request availability during open adoption hours or for an appointment.

*** COURTESY POSTING - Peter Zippi Memorial Fund Inc will provide your contact information to the guardian if you are interested in learning more about this fabulous feline. *** Dash is a sweet (approximate) 6-year-old cat who loves attention and hunting. Did a spider get into your room? Dash is on it! Throw a toy across the room and he’s after it! He also enjoys watching birds and other critters through a window. Dash is a smart cat who thrives with attention and companionship. He would do very well in a larger home where occasional zoomies throughout the house are welcomed. He has lived with a cat previously and would likely do well with another if properly introduced. While Dash is in excellent health now, he did experience struvite crystals in his past. He requires a special diet to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Are you the one who will let him be his fun, loving self and show him lots of love and attention? Dash would love to meet you!
