Feline Rescue's Adoption Center: A Place for all Kinds of Cats

When you have nearly 70 cats under one roof, introducing new cats to each other is a big job. After new cats arrive at the Feline Rescue Adoption Center, they spend a couple of weeks in our intake room, where they are checked out, treated for any medical problems, and spayed or neutered if they haven’t been already. This introductory period gives Feline Rescue volunteers a chance to observe and evaluate the cats to determine where in the shelter they should be placed once they are available for adoption.

The Feline Rescue Adoption Center has a number of different rooms in which to place cats while they await adoption into their forever homes. The “shy room,” for example, is home to some of our shyer and older residents. Young, active cats, often take up residence in the “back room”, where they have plenty of space to run around and interact with other cats and people.

While living with so many other cats doesn’t always come naturally to a cat, most of our residents adjust well to their new environment and enjoy the company of other cats while at the shelter. But a few cats are more of a challenge when it comes to introducing them to the rest of the group. Some cats just don’t like other cats and would prefer to go to a home where they can be the only cat. These cats spend their time at the adoption center in private rooms or kennels when the other cats are out and come out to exercise with volunteers in the common areas when all the other cats are put away.

If you’re looking to adopt just one cat, consider one of these cats who would prefer to live in a single-cat-household: Giorgio, Raja, Pearl, Sasie, Zeda, Opal, Tomasita, Mekasch, Sonny, or Juniper. With homes of their own, the true personalities of these sweet cats would really shine!

We know that sometimes it’s hard to interact with cats when they’re in a kennel. So feel free to ask a Feline Rescue Adopter to help arrange a time and space for you to spend some one-on-one time with one of these special cats.

If you are interested in learning more about any of the cats residing at our adoption center, please stop by the Feline Rescue Adoption Center or call 651-642-5900, ext.3.
