Adoptions

Hello Supporters!


The much anticipated announcement is finally here – Cat’s Meow Cat Rescue is rolling out Adoptions!

Now you can adopt one of the many adorable kittens or cats in our custody that you have admired from afar!


Although this was not in our original plan when we started this group, this year’s kitten season has been a doozy. Originally when we started having kittens coming into our possession, usually from feral or colony cats we were trapping and then taking the kittens into our custody for socializing, we were moving them directly to Oregon Humane Society through the Kitten Caboose program, which is a partnership between OHS and Feral Cat Coalition and is an incredibly successful program.


This worked extremely well for us, until about the end of July. We were able to make appointments and get all of our kittens neutered and spayed in the clinic, and they were directly transferred to an adoption venue, where they would find their furever homes.


But we aren’t the only group doing this, and kittens coming into our custody aren’t the only kittens in the Portland Metro area. While the Feral Cat Coalition and the Oregon Humane Society are working extremely hard in neutering and spaying cats, and getting kittens ready to get adopted, the overflow is massive. To make a long story shorter, the wait time to move kittens into clinic or be able to transfer them into the Kitten Caboose program has increased substantially.


We reached out to both FCCO and OHS to see what could we do that could help lessen the load, and both groups suggested for Cat’s Meow to think about starting up our own adoption program.

We knew this wouldn’t be as simple as just finding a home for cats and kittens. It needed to be a legitimate program, with developed protocols and policies, so we started reaching out to other shelter executive directors and organizational leaders for advice over the past few weeks and received an incredible amount of encouragement and assistance. We are extremely grateful for all the direction and input we received.


Well, we are ready! Cat’s Meow Cat Rescue will be starting up adoptions of all our cats and kittens in our care! We will be listing cats and kittens that are ready to be adopted now, and also kittens that will be coming available soon. If one catches your eye, please make sure to specify the CMCR ID number related to the cat you are interested in.


All of our cats and kittens will have been neutered and spayed, vaccinated for FVRCP and rabies, flea treated, wormed, snap tested for FIV/FeLV, and will be micro-chipped. Also included will be a free Initial First Visit coupon from Gladstone Veterinary Clinic.


For kittens that are not yet fixed and still waiting for their clinic appointment, you will still be able to start the adoption process but will have to wait for them to be fixed before you can bring them home.

We also require that you adopt in pairs, or already have a cat or kitten in the home.


Our application is located HERE. You can email the completed application to [email protected] Applications will be evaluated and Cat’s Meow Cat Rescue does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law.


Our roll out pricing is as follows:


$105 for one male, $190 for a pair

$120 for one female, $220 for a pair

$205 for one male and one female

$80 each - Rescue kittens (ear tipped, brought to CMCR by concerned community members)

$50 for adult cats.


We are so grateful to the community for all their support while we work towards the mission of lessening the populations of cats in our community. Thank you for all your support – it truly does take a village! And – it is all about the cats!

Me and Lucy are two peas in a pod! We have strong personalities, are happy with high energy playtime, yet sensitive and love to cuddle and snuggle with our humans. We were actually found under a bush with my littermates in Gladstone by a good Samaritan who called for help. We were covered in fleas and needed some supportive care, but thrived with the attention and are now looking for our furever homes! Is that with you?

I have been growing up with David and Lucy. I’m a bit more shy, but I really like being with humans and will let you know with my soft purrs. My fur is like velvet. I was trapped in an industrial yard in NE Pdx over an extended period with my mom and littermates. Someone who worked there was definitely looking out for us! We were in really bad shape, full of parasites and extremely malnourished. We were also extremely fearful. It has taken a long time, but I have done extremely well with the tender loving care and a lot of patience by my foster mom and now I’m looking for a new home with either another kitten or another friendly cat. Could it be with you?

I am an adventurous and vocal girl who is independent and love to be around people. My sister, Dora, and I love to play with toys and chase each other. I came from a colony out in Molalla where all the female cats had kittens right around the same time. We were some of the first to get pulled by the caregiver and socialized by Cat’s Meow. I come as a bonded pair with my sister and we are looking for our furever home. Could it be you?

I’m so adorable! But I’m also kind of shy and like to take things slow. I have recently been coming out of my shell more often, but I will need a home that has patience and will help me build my confidence. Someone took me from an urban camper who was trying to sell me, but he couldn’t care for me either and just did that to hopefully get me into a better situation and I am so grateful! He contacted someone on the west side who contacted Cat’s Meow and they came to get me right away! I am so cute, and now I’m looking for my furever home. Any takers on this cutie pie?

I am playful, sweet and extremely well behaved and I love people. I will also let you know when I want more attention! I came from an unexpected litter and one day the homeowner wanted me gone ASAP. A foster mother from Cat’s Meow jumped right in and took me and my brother into her care immediately, where we have thrived. Now I’m just waiting to find my furever home. Is anyone wanting a black panther in their lives? Meow meow.

I am pretty shy right now and still coming out of my shell, but my foster mom is confident that I will blossom in her care and be the kitten I want to be! I’m learning what it means to be inside, how to play, and all those things that kittens need to learn. My story is a bit of a mystery, but I came from a metal scrapyard that was being demolished in Vancouver, WA. Someone saw some kittens running around when they were starting demolition, and after a few phone calls, a nice lady from Multnomah County set out to catch us and was successful with me and two of my siblings. Yay! We were pretty filthy and malnourished but have mostly recovered from that ordeal and will be looking for our furever homes shortly. We may need a little bit of patience but should flourish in a nice home. Do you have any extra space for me?

I am super shy right now and everything is scary to me, but my foster mom is confident that I will blossom in her care and be the kitten I want to be! My brothers are much more outgoing than I am and it might take me a bit longer to not be so fearful.
