We are completely smitten with this kitten! Have those eyes stolen your heart?
This foster kitten is just dropping in to say, “You’re amazing and doing great!” Would those eyes lie to you?
It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day! Daffy and Bugs just couldn’t wait to celebrate the spooky season a couple of months early and show that they’re not so superstitious. In fact, we think whoever brings these black beauties home will be the LUCKIEST pet parents!

“But first, let me take a selfie!” With eyes like that, we’re sure he’ll shine in any photo.
Sharing a bed at a sleepover be like… Which one are you and your best friend?
That awkward moment when you open your camera, but it’s facing the wrong way.
Who dares disturb our slumber? Kittens waking up from a nap are a MOOD!
Before vs. After we told him he had to get his nails trimmed. He was a trooper anyway!
Why do some cats like to sit on your shoulders? Although experts haven’t pinpointed an exact reason, they believe it’s mainly because you make them feel safe and loved. We’ll take that!

Will you return Sully’s affection for years to come? Stay tuned and check out our adoptions page to find out how you can give her a forever home.

Smile for the camera! Filled with character and spirit, Hollywood stands out from the crowd both on-screen and off. Stop by for a visit and she just may sing you a little tune.
Arik is ready for his closeup. This handsome boy proved he is anything but camera shy at his 4 week checkup with Momma Astrid. When he’s ready for adoption, he’ll surely be the star of a lucky family’s home…and camera roll.
“What’s the password?” These cool cats have turned their foster home into a club house. Do you think Nila and Nash would let you join?
That feeling when it’s a beautiful summer day, but you’re stuck inside working. Trisha and Terry will be ready for their furever homes later this week!

This much cuteness has no measure! Wendy’s little kittens are growing fast and at four weeks old, Warlock is almost spilling out of the scale.
“Whose idea was this?” Cheshire was not pleased at first to hear that she was the lucky feline chosen to pose for our #FourthOfJuly photoshoot. However, she got into a groove once she saw how cute she looked in the photos.

Started from the bottom, now she’s here! Former Bottle Baby Fudge arrived at the Center on April 7th. Since she and her two siblings had no mother, they required around-the-clock care from our devoted fosters to keep them growing. Almost three months later, Fudge and her siblings are thriving and are set to hit the adoption floor by this weekend.

#ThrowbackThursday already? How will tiny Sonic ever have enough time to prep for his weekend of napping in the sun!
We have a very special tale for this Tuesday!
On the hottest day of the spring in mid-April, these four kittens were stashed away in an abandoned Mercedes at a collision center in San Diego. With no food or water, the lives of these three-week-old babies were saved by an employee who brought them to the center. Our dedicated fosters nursed them to perfect health and socialized them for two months. They are now happy, healthy, and hilarious. Today was their first day in our cattery, and they were hamming it for the camera! Happy Life to Sugar, Frosting, Cake, and Sprinkles!
Spring is finally available and waiting for her forever home in our cattery right now! Here’s what her foster has to say about her:
“I’ve had Spring since Feb and she will go up for adoption tomorrow. She has been through so much. She started off dreading a touch and did not know how to play. She has turned into such a healthy, sweet, affectionate, and playful young cat. Tomorrow will be heartbreaking to say goodbye to my little buddy, but she is ready to have a forever home and live her best life. And that’s what we do. Foster proud!”
Thank you so much to all of our fosters, especially those who foster our animals that need longer-term care!
Sometimes the most inspiring thing you can do on a Monday morning is hit snooze and stay in bed. Just ask Arepa and Quesadilla.
Quesadilla is available right now! Request you adoption appointment now for the chance to meet her and her friends! We are now scheduling appointments to visit our cattery just days in advance from Wednesday – Sunday.
#ThrowbackThursday to one of our first litter of the season! These kittens have found their home, but their momma Salma is still prepping for her adoption day.
Ursa came to us at just days old without a mother. Our foster and medical teams acted quickly, and she became one of our first bottle babies this season. Our dedicated fosters have been bottle feeding her throughout the day and night, and she is now starting to eat solid food at four weeks old. Her foster family says she is so bonded to her people and always ready for a play session. Keep growing strong, baby Ursa!
Liam says he is READY for his close-up! This three-week-old kitten did not understand the concept of “waiting for #WayUpCloseWednesday.”
Request your adoption appointment now for the chance to meet this superstar in about five weeks!
Sapphire and Amethyst have spent the majority of their five weeks on Earth snoozing, and we can’t blame them! Request your adoption appointment now for the chance to meet them in about three weeks! #TuesdaySnoozeday
If our foster families can capture perfect family photos of four-week-old kittens, we can conquer this week! #MondayMotivation
Point of View: Lars, Squid, Twister, Reggie, and Otto are very curious as to where you have been all week. Who is spending their weekend cuddling a kitten for 48 hours straight? If you’d like to, request your adoption appointment today!
#ThrowBackThursday to one of our first litters of the season! Momma Kali and her three kittens — Karma, Kookaburra, and King — arrived at the center one month ago as the kittens were just turning two weeks old. If you’re interested in these kittens, now is the time to submit an appointment request form as they are expected to become available in about two weeks!
Meet handsome Xenon, our first
#WayUpCloseWednesday kitten model of the season.
I think we can all relate to him as we wait
for the weekend to sneak up on us!
How to spend a May Gray day:
1. Find three friends
2. Nap Immediately.
2. Do not move until #TuesdaySnoozeday is over.
Point of View: the kittens you adopted during quarantine have no idea why you leave the house on Monday mornings now. Let’s have a great day for them! #MondayMotivation
It is #FancyKittyFriday! Sonic is primping and preening for his big [adoption!] date. Sonic and his siblings are expected to become available within the next week and a half. Request your appointment today to meet all of our fancy foster kittens!
This #ThankfulThursday, we are grateful for our patient Momma Cats.
We couldn’t save so many kittens without the help of wonderful mommas like Salma here.
Both Salma and her kits are expected to become available for adoption in the next couple of weeks!
Did we miss #TongueOutTuesday?
Well, how about #WorkingKittenWednesday?
Happy Cinco De Mayo from Chowder, our tiniest taquero.
