Foster to Adopt
We have some terrific cats who have been overlooked. When in a cage at our adoption events they don’t show all their wonderful qualities that we witness while they are in their foster homes. Often the cats feel nervous or anxious, or may struggle from cage stress stemming from their time in a shelter. It is difficult for them to show how sweet and loving they are in that environment.
Because of this, we offer these beautiful cats through our new Foster to Adopt program. What do we mean by Foster to Adopt? After becoming a pre-approved adopter you will take the kitty home for up to a month at no cost. Purr Partners will provide the food, litter and vet care. During the month, you will see what we already know — these are very special kitties that just need someone to take a chance on them!
At the end of the month, you will either complete the adoption for a reduced donation of only $50 or simply return the cat to us.
If this appeals to you, we encourage you to consider one of these very special kitties. The beautiful babies below are patiently waiting for their special person to come along and love them forever.
If there is a kitty that speaks to your heart please complete the Adoption Application include the name of the cat followed by F2A and one of our adoption specialists will be in touch!
DSH, Tuxedo, Male
Charleston is a wonderful boy who gets along with everyone! He loves his other foster friends and even tries to get the kittens to play with him. His favorite toy is a crinkly rabbit that he found and now he likes to carry it around the house. He watches each evening for his foster mom to come home so he can show her how much he missed her. Charleston is a youngster at heart and would love to find a family that he can call his own.
DSH, Grey/Brown Tabby, Female
Chelsea is a beautiful little girl with a pink nose and striking eyes. She came to us when she was a few weeks old – all by herself, no littermates or Momma. The first two weeks she was quarantined to make sure she was healthy so she only had humans for playmates. While she likes other cats and gets along with them, she is more comfortable being close to humans.
She will take all the attention you can give her. When she is in a loving mood she will climb on your lap, put her paws on your chest and touch your nose with hers! Sometimes what happens to a kitten early in life determines their personality – and Chelsea will be cautious at first, but once she knows you and trusts you, she will be a little love bug and a loyal friend.
She is curious about the world around her and can spot a fly or ant from 10 feet away. She loves to watch the birds and bugs outside a window and will make little chirping noises when something comes close to the window. Chelsea will play with any toy you give her, but she especially likes the beam from a laser.
Chelsea would do best with a couple or single person – where she can feel safe, can accept your love and give you all hers in return.
DSH, Mackerel Tabby, Male
My name’s Chevy and just like my namesake, I’m fast and ruggedly handsome. I’m a sports model because I like to play; show me feathers, kicker, laser light, most anything that moves and I’m ready for the game. I like to find a soft lap or to snuggle up real close for some TV, especially sports or movies that have some animals in them. I’m a terrific companion kitty and am looking for a human that would enjoy my company. I have a cat tree beside the window at my foster home for cat TV and napping and do hope my forever home will have one too. I do my bit around the house, keeping up with whatever is going on and helping out by being entertaining. I’m looking for a forever home with adults or older children. I haven’t had many kitty friends but with some very gradual introduction I’m willing to give it a try. I think dogs are OK from a distance, but I haven’t had much experience with them close up. If you are cat savvy and looking for a good-tempered companion, someone to hang out with you, I’m your boy.
Chevy is on Urinary Food to prevent urinary tract problems that are common in male cats. His toilet habits are excellent. He has very short hair and almost no shedding, a definite advantage. Chevy is not fond of PetSmart and the foster to adopt program gives the opportunity to see his real personality.
DSH, Black and White, Male
Foster to Adopt Eligible
I am a happy and affectionate kitty that wants to be an active part of my family’s life. I love attention and enjoy company – very much a people cat! In my foster home, I live with dogs (both big and small), other cats and teens. I am a wonderful companion cat as I like to sit next to my family on the couch, bed or at people’s feet if they are working on the computer. I am in the Foster to Adopt program because I am not fond of visiting PetSmart. It can take me a little while to warm up to new people on the first meet and greet, so you usually can’t enjoy my real charm and loving personality right away. I am actively working on my shyness though. If you take a chance on me and take me home, you won’t be sorry. You will see me blossom quickly and certainly by the second day (probably, before that – hint, give me treats!). Please reach out to Purr Partners for us to have a playdate at my foster home in North Raleigh.
