Oscar, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Sweet gentleman seeks residence

 

Good afternoon, human.

It is a pleasure to meet you. May I sniff your hand?

My name is Oscar. I am a soft and gentle nine-year-old boy, and the reason I'm writing to you is that I require housing. I am closing in on a full year at Cat Depot, and I am more than ready to move to a home of my own.

Since I am a cat, I am unable to offer monetary compensation as rent. I have other qualities I'm sure you will appreciate. I am for instance good at purring, I am affectionate, and I will greet you when you arrive to our domicile.

I am a great listener and would enjoy keeping you company. 

As we get to know each other, don't be surprised if I rub up against your legs and wrap my tail over you. To us cats, that is almost the same thing as holding hands.

The human who took this photo said I pose like a star. I'm not sure what that means, but I feel she captured my regal look quite well.

I look forward to hearing from you. My address is Mark's Place at Cat Depot. You will find me waiting for you at the door; my bags are packed and I am ready to depart. If I'm not by the door I may have given up for the day, in which case I can be found on the catio.

Sincerely,
Oscar

Chatty snuggle-bunny seeks purrson to call her own

 

Hi everyone, I'm Amber.

I got the name from my beautiful coat and eyes. The humans here say most orange tabbies are boys, but I'm a girl, and that makes me extra special.

I like being special. Who wouldn't? 

I also like napping. There's something about curling up in a soft and warm bed... And food. My roommate says it's easy to train me to do things, because I'm so food motivated I'll do almost anything for a snack. 

In the mornings I try to entice everyone passing by my room to come in and feed me. The humans pretend not to see or understand, but eventually I get my breakfast.

Another thing I enjoy is, you won't believe this: work. I can watch humans work all day long. 

I used to try to watch from the computer keyboard, but my roommate has taught me to sit next to her in the chair, so we can work together. She talks to people on the phone and write on the computer while petting me, and I can supervise her for hours.

She never sits still for that long, but I could.

In my opinion, I should have a pone of my own, because I really like to chat. If I were to live with you in your home I'd meet you every day and tell you all about what happened outside the windows. After that I'd love to snuggle. Company and snuggles are even better than naps!

My human roommate here at Cat Depot says I can be a little shy when you first meet me, but it only lasts for a few seconds. After that I become too curious and just have to see what's going on. Once I know you I'll rub my head against you and try to get as much cuddling in as I can.

I'm in one of the offices on the adoption's floor. Just turn right when you come in from the store and you'll see me. Come visit!

Stardust, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Dependable diva is ready to go home

 

Are you in need of a new furry friend who will always be there to brighten your day? Look no further, I am your girl.

I'm Stardust, a trustworthy six-year-old who loves chin and cheek rubs. Everyone who spends time petting me ends up becoming one of my best friends.

I came to Cat Depot almost a year ago after being found as a stray by Animal Services. I stay in the back with the humans, which I like because I get lots of one-on-one attention.

I'd really like to get out of here though. I'm not looking for much - just a purrson to cuddle who will make sure I always have enough toys. And food, because I really enjoy eating. In fact, I'm a plus-sized model.

I'm not too famous yet, so we won't have to worry about fending off the paparazzi for now. Although it seems inevitable for the future, because like my name suggests, I was born to be a star.

I guess I should mention I'm not all that fond of other cats. I need a house without other cats where I can have my human's attention all to myself. Some may say that makes me a diva, and I'm fine with that label.

Stardust ready for the OscarsWhat else... I love to play and run around when I'm in the right mood. I enjoy playing with feather and string toys. I like to pounce on a toy and then hold it with my paws. Not trying to brag, but I have a really good grip and sometimes the purrson I'm playing with has trouble prying the toy out of my paws.

Besides eating, modeling, and playing I also enjoy naps.

I'm really smart too. My high IQ makes me talkative, just wait until you hear my loud purrs and meows. You're going to fall in love.  

Winkin, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Handsome Gentleman Opens Up

 

Hello friends, how are you?

My name is Winkin. There is a lot I could tell you about myself, but I've mulled it over and compiled the most important details for you.

I am four years and five months old. I came to Cat Depot in June and I've been staying in one of the office rooms in the back, because I have a bit of a neurological issue. It causes my head to tilt, and the humans told me I'd be safer staying back there with them.

I would definitely classify myself as a shy cat. I took a couple personality tests on the computer one day when my desk-mate was away, and they all said I'm an introvert. I agree to an extent.

You see, I might not always come right up to someone I don't know, but if humans come to me, I will gladly spend time with them. I will admit, when I first came here, I hid under the desk for a month and half. Things still scare me, but once I warm up to you, I could lie on your lap for hours.

I'd just like to reiterate: I like laps. It's so nice to sprawl out on a human's lap while they hold me, it makes me feel so safe. I get sad when they have to leave, but I'm hoping to find a patient purrson who I can trust to always come back and spend time with me at the end of the day.

If you like well-behaved kitties, I'm your guy. I'm gentle and affectionate, and I've heard through the grapevine that I'm easy on the eyes.

If you'd like to learn more about me, please come see me so we can chat. Remember that I'm in the back, so you might have to ask one of the humans to bring you to me. Just tell them you're here to see Winkin, the cute and extraordinarily handsome black and white cat. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

 

Bernard, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Humans are finally giving me the opportunity to share my story with the world. I cannot contain my excitement right now - I'm going to be famous!

I'm Bernard and I am two years old. I came to Cat Depot almost a year ago after being found as a stray. You might have seen my face before, because I was runner up in the election for Meow Mayor. I'm not bitter about losing. I am proud of Carmen, but I think it might have been rigged.

I am a happy guy. I like all my roommates here in the FIV+ pod, and the people are nice too. I have made so many friends during my stay. 

My favorite part about being here is the kitty door, leading to the lanai. I like being in touch with nature, so I really enjoy going outside to get some fresh air and sunbathe a bit. I love to sit on the ledge of the catio and get some sun on my fur. When it's not too hot, of course.

Even though I am happy here, I think I could be even happier if I found a furever home. I am definitely social, but I think I would like to start a new chapter of my life in a nice, quiet home. With a lanai.

What else... Have you seen my nose? I've been told it's pretty cute. My fur is a buff color, but my nose is light brown. That's based on hearsay, I can't actually see my own nose. Hope the humans aren't making this up!

I know my purrson is out there somewhere, and I hope this message helps me find them. Feel free to stop by and see how sweet and gentle I am. I promise you will not be disappointed. I am more than ready to shower some affection on my new purrson!

McArthur and Mochaccino, adoptable cats at Cat Depot

Active teens searching for their teen matches 

 

Hi guys, it's Mochaccino and McArthur! We are both one-year-old, active cats, who came back to Cat Depot after our humans couldn't keep us anymore.

We are cuddly, affectionate, and social cats who love to play and mess around. Belly and head-rubs are our favorites. We have a lot of energy, but we also like to nap, so we can recharge for playtime.

We both vie for humans' attention and would love to find a family with a purrson for each of us. Sharing just isn't our strong suit. We share food, water, and toys, but not attention. Our dream is to find two kids - one for each of us.

We enjoy being around kids, because we act like them. We actually act like siblings and like to irritate each other as well as other cats, because, why not?

We might not be brothers by blood like last week's features Frankie Blue Eyes and Jeffrey, but we are fast friends and we've been told we look a lot alike. Ever heard of "friend soulmates?" That's us. 

We don't need to get adopted together, we would be happy for each other if we were separated, but we would love to stick together if we can.

Next time you come to Cat Depot, come visit our pod. You'll know it's ours, because it has a "Mochaccino: Escape Artist" sign on the door. The humans are nice, but don't understand we can't wait to get out to search for our furever home. 

We both look forward to meeting you!

Jeffrey and Frankie Blue Eyes, adoptable cats at Cat Depot

Bonded brothers ready to charm their way to a new home


Hello everyone, Frankie Blue Eyes and Jeffrey here. Not only are we brothers, we are also best friends, and we want to be 'dopted together.

------

Jeffrey, adoptable cat at Cat DepotSorry for the brief interruption, humans. It's Jeffrey meowing. I'm the better speaker and typer - not to mention, the cuter sibling - so I just convinced my brother to paw the keyboard over and let me do most of the talking. I may let him cut in at some point.

Like my brother, I am an eight-month-old Snowshoe Siamese mix. Another thing we have in common is, we both like attention. We dream of going to a furever home with lots of head rubs and snuggles.

I'm pretty playful and I love company. I'm always the first to jump onto a human's lap. I just adore when a purrson comes in to rub my tummy and spend time with me. I also enjoy nibbling on everything and playing with my toys.

My brother, Frankie Blue Eyes, likes to nap more than I do, but he can definitely be affectionate and playful when he's in the right mood. He always tries to tell me he was named after Frank Sinatra, but I beg to differ. Have you heard that squeak of his? My real purrs are much cuter.

-----

Frankie Blue Eyes, adoptable cat at Cat DepotFrankie Blue Eyes here! Don't listen to what my brother said about my squeaks. I sound cute, and I'm working on my meows.

I am easygoing and like to get my head rubbed. I am also the more handsome brother. Don't believe me? Stop by Seymour's Landing and see for yourself. My brother and I have our bags packed and ready to go for when that special someone comes to visit and take us home!

Mischief, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Just the right amount of Mischief

 

Hi! I'm Mischief. I know what you might be thinking, but I promise I'm not as bad as my name might make me sound.

I am seven years old and came to Cat Depot after my owner passed away. When I first got here, I was quite sad about the whole situation, because I missed my purrson. I'm doing much better now and am ready to find a new furever home.

I will be upfront with you humans - I consider myself a high maintenance cat. I love attention, but on my terms. At least until I have time to warm up to you.

That being said, I thought I'd teach you about my "zones." My back and tail area are "no no" zones. I won't be thrilled if you touch me there. But, I love being pet on my head and cheeks. Rub the side of my face for me and we can be best friends for life.

My roommate tells me I'm a brat sometimes, but I respectfully disagree. Why can't I lie on her papers and steal her chair without being teased? If you ask me, I'm a very helpful desk mate.

Hmm, what else can I say about myself... I really love feather toys, and I like playing in garbage cans. One time I played a prank on my roommate by tipping the trash can over and hiding in it. She couldn't find me and thought I'd gotten lost. That's karma for ya, right?

I want to meet more humans, because that means more chances of finding my purrson. All the humans that come to see me always go on and on about how "pretty" and "gorgeous" I am. Come and meet me so you can see for yourself!

Kurtie, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Affectionate girl longs for love and attention


Greetings, humans! Kurtie's the name, and I'm so happy to meet you.

I am seven years old and came to Cat Depot after my owner got sick and couldn't take care of me anymore. I am super social with my cat friends, and gentle with my human friends.

I am very low maintenance. I don't need a bunch of toys or treats to keep me happy. All I really need is a soft blanket and a nice human to give me lots of attention. I can't think of anything better than getting a good pet and spending time with my purrson. If I'm being honest, I would be content just having some good company, so I don't have to spend my days alone.

I am comfortable with silence. But, I mean, if your hand is in my vicinity, it's pretty much a guarantee that I'm going to nudge it with my nose until you pet me. Just rub my head and chest and I'll be happy. I promise not to be too annoying about it.

Next time you come to Cat Depot, please stop by Maloney's and see me! I'll be waiting, in one of the cubbies probably. Come spend some time with me, give me a good head rub, and maybe take me home with you if things work out!

Carmen, adoptable cat at Cat Depot

Three-legged sweetheart accepting applications 


Hi there! I'm Carmen, and I am currently accepting applications for candidates to give me a furever home.

I came to Cat Depot over a year ago when my owner got too old to take care of me. My old purrson taught me to be an honest cat, so I'm just going to come out and say it - when it comes to humans, I pick favorites. I'm not looking for just anyone to take me home.

This is what I'm hoping for:

* A good cuddler
* Someone who can give me lots of attention
* A professional head-and-chin stroker
* Feather toys. Lots of feather toys.

Now for a little about myself. I love naps. My roommates here in "Taza Territory" sometimes make fun of me because I sleep so much. I don't mind the teasing, a girl has to get her beauty sleep, right?

When I'm not sleeping, I like spending time with my friends, as I am a pretty social cat. I also really enjoy watching TV. Did I mention I like feather toys?

I suppose I should also tell you about my leg situation. I had a bad infection when I came to Cat Depot. The kind vet purrson here had to remove my front leg and I'm feeling much better now. I do get a little scared sometimes, so I feel safer when I'm being carried. Don't worry though, what I lack in the leg department I make up for in love.

I will be holding interviews with potential candidates every day of the week, so please come visit me. I really look forward to meeting you!

Featured Cat available for adoption at Cat DepotMeow! I'm Mystery. 


Humans said I'd get a chance to introduce myself to the world. This is so exciting!

I am eleven years young and came to Cat Depot in October when my purrson went to hospice care. During my months here I have become a volunteer favorite. I am very helpful, and I love sitting on people. 

I'm hoping to find a home where my lap-sitting skills will be appreciated. I'm calm and I like to hang out. Maybe we can watch TV, or I can help you with whatever you like to do? I don't take up  much room, I really don't, I just need somewhere to put my bed. In return, I will give all my love.

Come see me. I've been at Cat Depot for many long months, and I am more than ready to go home.

 

 

Featured Cat available for adoption at Cat DepotSearching for happily furever after


Dear human,

My name is Carmen. I'm a special girl looking for a special purrson, and I have waited here at Cat Depot for a long time - I arrived April 4th last year when my owner fell ill and couldn't care for me anymore.

What's so special about me?

Well, I only have three legs, and I'm front declawed, so I have reason to be uncertain of the world around me. I compensate through talking and it scares many potential 'dopters - they think I'm going to bit them, but it's just my way of communicating. I enjoy being high up, so I can keep track of the world around me.

One of the volunteers sometimes lifts me up and carries me around. I make a lot of noise when he lifts me, but once he holds me I love it. I enjoy when he carries me around the corridors, letting me look at things and people.

What else... I am eleven years and ten months young. I enjoy watching TV, and that's something we could do together. You could munch some popcorn and I could have some cat treats.

Love, 
Carmen
