KITTEN WIRE: 6 KITTENS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

OAKLAND — Squeaky mews. Tiny paws. Big purrs. All signs point to a kitten takeover.

There are three bonded pairs of kittens at Cat Town, all around 3 to 4 months old, ready to meet their future families — and accepting plenty of belly rubs while they patiently wait.

Earlier this summer we told you about Cat Town's initiative to intervene earlier, rescuing young cats before they were forgotten. That means using precious resources to take in kittens and find them homes. It also means that if you are looking to bring a playful, cuddly ball of fur (or two) into your home, now is the perfect time to adopt from Cat Town.

WHY PAIRS?

Typically, Cat Town adopts the kittens in pairs. Spend any amount of time with them and you’ll see they love each other and spend endless amounts of time grooming, wrestling and, in general, keeping each other entertained. The experts tell us they are teaching each other how to be cats. Growing up with a sibling helps in immeasurable ways. When they aren't in bonded pairs, Cat Town will adopt a solo kitten to a home with another cat that has shown a willingness to take on a new feline friend. Again, the focus is on the health and happiness of our young charges.

Trust us when we say two is better than one for the emotional well-being of the kittens now and into adulthood.


AUGUST ADOPTION SPECIAL

In our effort to make the biggest impact and rescue the most cats during this busy kitten season, we are offering an adoption special in August. Fees are 50% off for all qualified adopters. All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

Adopting now helps alleviate the above average need of the Oakland shelter during these particularly busy summer months when homeless cats tend to have their litters.

BE OUR HERO

And if you are a big-hearted person eager to make a difference for a member of our Forgotten Kitten Project, consider adopting one of our older kittens, now young adults, really, in need of loving, understanding adopters who know patience is the key to progress.
