Meet Iona!

Hi folks!  My name is Iona and you may know that name as an island off the west coast of Scotland. No, I am not a Scottish lassie…I hail from a hoarding situation of 22 dogs and 10 cats in a garage in Bakersfield area and honestly, that took its toll on me, both physically and psychologically. But look at me now, really enjoying pets in my foster home! It took me a while to trust people again, but I’m doing well now. And I am healthy!  I love my food, I’ve put on a couple of pounds, and my liver and thyroid are in great shape.  I’ve had all my teeth removed but I enjoy my dry food with gusto – no problems with eating it!  I also enjoy playing with a wand toy or sparkling feather. I’ll be honest here – I do need a quieter home where you can be patient as I get to know you – but you will be rewarded not only with my delight in being petted, but the deep satisfaction of knowing that I trust and love you. I was born in September 2009 which means that I am sixty in human years. I am up to date with my vaccines, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, spayed, and microchipped. Here’s an earlier video of me:  I am living in a private home so please do an application at

Meet India!

Hi there! My name is India and watch my video – you’ll see how much I LOVE to play – and you will see my striking markings and big green eyes up close!

I have made a remarkable comeback from the timid and nervous kitty that I was when I was rescued from a hoarding situation…I am FULL of life and love and spirit and play and, well, my life is SO GREAT now!  I love petting all over my body – I think I am making up for lost time.  I love attention and being with people.

I am nervous in a new situation, as you could expect with my background, but give me a bit of time and I will adjust.  I seem fine with other kitties and I might be ok with gentle dogs and cat-savvy children.  Playing with me is the key to my heart – and petting too.  If you pet me and play with me, I will be just great with you.  I was born in October 2012 which makes me in my early forties in human years.  We did bloodwork and my liver, kidney and thyroid are all in great shape, and my teeth too!  I am spayed, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, up to date with my vaccines, and microchipped.

I am living in a private foster home so please do an application for adoption at
