Cats & Kittens
Cats available for adoption
Hiro was adopted from a shelter in another state as a little one. He moved to California with family, and when they couldn’t find pet-friendly housing, he landed in a local shelter. Hiro wants to be with people. He calls out when you are near and is very affectionate. Now that he’s had a little necessary dental attention, Hiro is looking for his hero and fur-ever friend. Will it be you?
This handsome boy is all heart from the tip of his nose to his tail! Frosty joined us at the end of January after he found himself in a Los Angeles City Shelter with a broken leg. We immediately took him to one of our favorite surgeons at Access Animal Hospital in Torrance. Once the surgery was complete he went to one of our fabulous foster homes for recovery. Frosty has been released by his surgeon and is ready to find his fur-ever! He is a mellow boy who loves people and other cats equally.
Somebody brought me into the shelter and said they saw me get hit by a car. I couldn’t even get up onto my feet. After a few days, I became more active, and x-rays showed that no major bones were broken, and everything looked in place. At that point, the shelter asked PZF if they would take me in for further care and to find a home. There were a couple of chips off my pelvic bones, and they are expected to heal on their own if I don’t run in front of any more cars. The volunteers all love me – I am loving and sweet, and I enjoy gentle play. I am self-limiting by my sore hind end, so I don’t get into much trouble now, but I should still not be encouraged to run around or jump for a few more weeks. That’s OK. I LOVE to snuggle.
We received a plea from a City shelter that a young adult cat had been surrendered with 15 others, and was in desperate need of eye surgery. We took him right in. Beckett had no use of one eye, it was malformed and sightless. He held the other eye almost completely closed beneath his third lid and a malformed lower lid. During the first week with us, Beckett was untrusting but never acted out. He was given a soft “cave” in his cage to retire into and received eye cleansing, ointment, and oral medications several times daily. He fussed about being restrained for this but was gentle. As the abrasions on his cornea improved, a clear contact lens was placed to stop the irritation of his inwardly turned lid. We began to see him venture out, play with a toy, and run around in his cage (if he thought nobody was watching). Ever so slowly, he began to learn to trust, then enjoy people. Now he has had surgery to repair the painful lid, and his nonfunctioning eye removed and lids closed. He is happy to run around in the office space where his cage is located and doesn’t mind the periodic visits of the small PZF dog volunteer. After his sutures are removed in a few days, he can live without his e-collar, and be evaluated with other gentle cats. Given his sweet disposition, and that he came from a multi-cat environment, we anticipate that he will be fine in the community room. Beckett is a volunteer favorite now. He will be a true friend to a gentle person or family.
Emmy is a beautiful, bright-eyed girl with a quiet disposition. She has gorgeous markings on her back and nose highlighted with pure white fur. Emmy has an independent spirit and will often play on her own with the various toys available in our community room. She can’t resist the urge to chase a feather on a string though and it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Even though she came from a home with multiple cats, Emmy prefers the company and love of people, If you are looking for a loyal, intelligent friend for life, Emmy is waiting for you to see her.
We estimated Tika’s birthday to be Valentine’s Day 2018 because she is such a love. This beautiful tabby girl with adorable white socks on her feet loves receiving human affection. In fact, we’re pretty sure it’s her favorite pastime. Tika greets you as soon as you enter the community room. She will walk right up to you, stand on her hind feet and reach toward you as if to say “pick me up, please”. We don’t know her entire story as she just showed up in someone’s front yard one day. They knew she deserved a better life and came to us when we had space available. Tika is as playful as she is affectionate, it’s a joy to watch her playing soccer with her favorite ping pong ball. She is a confident girl and would be a purr-fect addition to any family.
Wouldn’t you love to see this little round face in your home every day? Scarlett sometimes looks grumpy but we can assure you that she’s always super sweet. She started her journey with us as a Courtesy Posting after her 2-year-old person had developed allergies that could not be resolved. When it got to a point where she was shelter bound we decided to step in because we had room for one more. Scarlett is a model cat citizen who just wants to be loved. Her ideal home is one where she can receive lots of attention, lounge on a comfy couch and nap in a sun puddle. When she’s not lounging, she loves to play with string toys. Scarlett was raised with an older cat so she would likely do well in a multi-cat home given the proper time for acclimation and introduction to her new fur-family member(s). Of course, Scarlett wouldn’t mind at all if she were your one and only. Who is ready to give this beautiful girl a new start in a fabulous fur-ever home?

*** COURTESY POSTING - Peter Zippi Memorial Fund Inc will provide your contact information to the appropriate contact if you are interested in learning more about this fabulous feline. *** Arthur is approximately 10 years old and is seeking a new person. Not because his person doesn’t love or want him but because she had to go away. Judy now resides in an Assisted Living Facility and is unable to care for Arthur. He is still living in Judy's home and is being fed and cared for by her very good friend who looks in on him and feeds him twice daily but everyone wants so much more for him. Unfortunately, her friend cannot take him as she cares for two rescue dogs who do not get along with him. Arthur is an indoor-outdoor cat at the moment but has the potential to be transitioned to indoor only. He is a wonderful little guy and wants to be your one and only but it will be worth it. Arthur is smart, loving, clean and incredibly loyal. He responds well to lots of attention and affection. He is up to date on all vaccinations and was neutered a long time ago. Arthur was Judy’s baby and is very people-centric. He would make a great companion for a cat lover. He is used to being the only cat in the household but shared his space with a dog. Arthur would do best in a quiet household with no other cats but would likely do just fine with a respectful dog if the proper introduction was given. Judy lavished all her attention and affection on him. Are you ready to do the same?

*** 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!
