Courtesy Post Information and Form

NOTE: We only post cats who are located in California.

We only take in cats if we have foster space for them.  If you cannot keep your cat, and we cannot take it, we can still help by putting your cat on our Adoptable Cats page as a Courtesy Post cat.  In addition to having us post your kitty, contact all family & friends and don’t be shy – they won’t know how important this is to you unless you make it clear; put up flyers at your vet’s office and make your deadline very visible at the top of the flyers; contact rescue groups asking if they can take in the kitty and offer them money to help defray the costs of caring for your kitty.

To start the Courtesy Post process with us, please fill out the following form to supply us with information about your kitty. The more information you give us, the better the ad that we can create for your cat.

Also, email photos (in JPG, PNG, or GIF format) of your cat to artemiss222@gmail.com. Please take a little time to get good quality photos of your cat, as the photo is the first thing that will catch the eye of visitors to the site. See our guide to taking better cat photos to help your kitty pics stand out from the rest!

If you can make a video of the kitty, we have found this greatly increases the cat’s chances of getting adopted. You can upload the video to YouTube and send the URL to artemiss222@gmail.com
