a playful and affectionate cat who is looking
for someone to love her. Kinsley has FIV,
which is an auto-immune deficiency, but she
is in great health. FIV is not transmissible
to humans and is exceedingly difficult to
transmit to other cats. If you can find the
love in your heart to care for her, Kinsley
would be your best new buddy.
These cats and kittens are available for adoption
through Kitten Rescue, one of the largest
cat rescue groups in Southern California. All
our kitties are spayed/neutered, microchipped,
tested for FeLV and FIV, dewormed and current
on their vaccinations. Temporarily, adoption
events are suspended. For additional information
and to see these or our other kittens and
cats, please check our website www.kittenrescue.

With our city and state shut down, we are
faced with the delicate balance to protect our
fellow humans from the spread of COVID-19,

crisis. We know that these are hard times for
everyone. If you can give a little, it will go a
long way. They are still counting on us during
these difficult times. Your tax-deductible
donations for the rescue and care of our cats
and kittens can be made through our website

Saving one animal won’t change the
world, but the world will surely change for
that animal. •
“Kitten season” is here and there is a great
need for foster parents. Whether you care for
one or many, once or frequently, Kitten Rescue
would love for you to become a foster parent.
They offer training, guidance, medical care (if
needed) and lots of moral support. Fostering
brings you the rich reward of knowing you
personally saved this kitty’s life in providing a
safe, loving home while waiting for adoption.
Interested?......please email them at foster@
kittenrescue.org for more information.
If just 2% of the pet-owning households in
America fostered one pet a year, we could stop
euthanizing healthy pets in shelters.
Here are a few of the precious cats and kittens
waiting for their fur-ever homes.
Looking for a lap cat? Cosmo is a little
fluffer nugget that loves to play “find the
mouse” with her best friend and brother, PJ.
When she’s finished eating, she likes to climb
into your lap for her after-meal cleaning and a
few scratches in all the right places. Her purr
can be heard from across the room, and she
has the sweetest face that every pet parent can
love. Cosmo was initially named after Cosmo
Kramer for her goofy nature and crazy kitty hair.
PJ is the life of the party, and there is
never a dull moment when he’s around. He
is fearlessly curious and runs from room to
room like he’s seeing the world for the first
time. PJ has not met a food or toy that he
doesn’t like and prefers to perch high above
the room to groom himself and observe the
world around him. PJ has a lot of kitty energy
but also has a lot of love to give you
and your family. He’s highly motivated by
food, so cat tricks could be in his future. It
would be wonderful if PJ and Cosmo could
be adopted together; they balance each other
out in all the right ways.
Sophie came to her foster family with her
brother, Sam, with whom she is very bonded.
Sophie was the shyer of the pair, but quickly
came out of her shell to show that she is one
of the sweetest kitties this foster family has
ever had! Sam is an affectionate love bug
who is inquisitive and playful with a meow so
passionate he is bound to get your attention
every time! Like most black kitties, they are
ultra-affectionate and will tell you they love
you by turning on their “purr” machines. Sophie
and Sam also love spending time on your
lap and will not hesitate to climb on when an
opportunity presents itself. This pair has been
exposed to other cats in their foster home and
they understand boundaries when necessary.
They also have done very well with children.
Sam and Sophie will be great additions to any
Paterson is a panther cat who has a secret –
she’s got the swirling stripes of a classic tabby,
but they only show up in bright light. Cats with
this unique color pattern are sometimes referred
to as “ghost tabbies.” Her yellow eyes and a
bright pink tongue provide the perfect pop of
color to her monochromatic ensemble. Patty’s
favorite hobbies are climbing, toy hunting, and
laying in the sun with her foster siblings. Patty
would love to find a forever family with one
of the kitties in her foster home (Blair, Wilson,
and Potter Stewart) but would be happy as long
as she has another young kitty for a playmate.
Kinsley is a beautiful, fluffy eight-year-old
tortoiseshell who looking for a very patient,
kind and gentle adopter, fully committed to
helping her come out of her shell. Kinsley
recently showed up at a friend’s doorstep
hungry and looking for a home. We can never
know what Kinsley went through before she
came to us, but we can be certain that she
has been through a lot and had incredible
strength to survive her time on the streets.
Initially, Kinsley is very shy and searches for
safety in confined spaces. However, if you
are patient and loving towards her, she will
start to trust you and let you into her world.
Aa you sit with her and give her neck and
back scratches, she will quickly transform to
Sophie (left) and Sam
Marguerite has found her human soulmates!
We rescued Marguerite with her mom and
siblings from a high kill shelter two years
ago. The family went into foster care, but
Marguerite was very shy and would retreat
when potential adopters would come to visit
her. After a couple years in foster care, we took
a chance and put her at our Stevenson Ranch
PetSmart enclosures where she blossomed
with the attention of our daily volunteers.
A couple of weeks ago her new family,
Marguerite (aka Bonnie) and her soulmates.
Robert and Emily, walked in and it was love
at first sight. Robert had been to several
shelters in search of a kitty, but he had not
felt the connection that he was looking for.
When we took Marguerite out of her cage,
she walked right up to Robert’s feet and
pined for attention. The rest is history! Her
name is now Bonnie and she is finally home!
When you adopt a “pet without a partner”,
you will forever make a difference in their life
and they are sure to make a difference in yours. •
