Shy Cats

Shy Cats

Meet Tommy!

Hi everybody! My name is Tommy and I’ve been described as a bit of a “sweet doofus.”  Ok, so it’s said with love and a smile…I’ve done a few clumsy things in my life and you know how one’s reputation gets quickly established even if it’s not longer really true! So, once I rolled off a cat tree when I was responding to a pet – I put my whole self into the pet and well, I just slipped off.  So, there’s my “doofus” story!  I love laps and my BIG purr is very calming to humans.  I love playing with toys (especially the Cat Dancer) and I enjoy the other kitties in my foster home.  And while I can be shy when I meet new people or am in a new place, once I get to know you, I will be “putty in your hands.” I’m a big boy and will probably grow into a long, lanky type cat. I probably will do best in a home with a kitty buddy that I can pal around with.  I was born in mid-April 2017 and I have been neutered, tested negative and have had my vaccines. Oh, I’m probably ok with dogs and I haven’t been around children. Check out my video

You can contact my foster Mom Naida at or 510-225-5145and she can tell you all about me!

Meet Hollister!

Hi there! My name is Hollister and I’ll just tell you right off the bat – I am WAAAY better looking than these photos make me out to be. I just did not like the camera OR the flash – you can get a decent look at me on my video but even then, I was not a terribly cooperative kitty the day of my photo shoot! But take my word for it – I’m a big 13-pound fluffy brown tabby boy who loves to sleep with my foster Mom and cuddle with her in bed…I love to play with hair ties (no need for kitty toys!) and I love to open closet and cabinet doors (a kitty version of ‘Hide and Seek.’) Did you get a look at that tail in my video?  I was born in August 2009 which means that I’m in my late forties in human years.  I’ve had some dental work done so my teeth are in great shape and my liver, kidney and thyroid all tested to be normal. I’m probably best as an only kitty, I haven’t been around dogs but I could be ok as I’m pretty confident, and I haven’t been around children but I could be ok with older, cat-savvy children.

I am living in a private foster home, not a shelter, so prospective adopters need to be approved to visit me there. Please fill out an adoption application
