Our House is Now a Home with Elsa

Our House is Now a Home with Elsa

When Elsa arrived at Cat Town, she wanted nothing to do with people and even less to do with other cats. She tucked herself into corners and did her best impression of a turtle, retracting her head any time a hand came near. My fellow volunteers and I worked to soften her, but had little success.

A few weeks into her stay, my boyfriend, Elliot and I stopped by. We both agreed that something about Elsa’s lack of interest made her all the more lovable. Elliot reached into the cubby where Elsa was hiding to let her sniff his hand, and for the first time, she did. We didn’t know it then, but our fates were sealed in that tiny moment.

December 2017 Adoptions

December 2017 Adoptions

The final month of 2017 was another happy one at Cat Town. We were ecstatic to see so many cats head home for the holidays! Buzz and Duke, who were untouchable at the shelter, transformed in our Studios and both found their families. And Didi, who went through 4 surgeries while at Cat Town, was adopted just in time to ring in the new year.

2018 is already off to a great start and we can't wait to connect more families in the coming months. If you're looking to adopt, email us at info@cattownoakland.org and check out our full list of available cats.

November 2017 Adoptions

November 2017 Adoptions

Cat Town works hard to help vulnerable senior cats land on their feet. During November's Adopt-a-Senior-Pet month, we found homes for a number of our cats, including seven seniors!

We're always so excited when our cats find their matches, and we can't wait to share more of their adoption stories with you in the coming months.
