OAKLAND — Good news, kitten fans. Several of our adoptable young kitties will be available for adoption at the Bay Area Pet Fair this weekend in Pleasanton. And even more kittens will be accepting visitors at the Cat Town studios.

This is big news for the Forgotten Kitten Project because it shows how far these previously shy, under-socialized kittens have come in the time they have been with us. At the shelter, they were hard to handle, scared and often hissy. Thanks to the specially trained volunteers and staff who worked with them daily to provide positive interactions and a stimulating environment, these kittens are ready to graduate out of the Forgotten Kitten Project and into their homes.

If you are looking to meet rescue animals from all over the Bay Area and maybe bring a new pet into your home, check out the Bay Area Pet Fair at the Alameda County Fair Grounds in Pleasanton on Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cat Town will have a special display featuring a miniature version of our innovative, free-roaming adoption space.

And if you aren't headed to the Pet Fair, join us for a Highwire cappuccino at RAWR Coffee Bar and a visit with 20+ adoptable cats and kittens currently at the Cat Town adoption center and in the Studios. Pro tip: Ask the volunteer on duty to take you back to see the (almost!) forgotten kittens.
