Larry, Harry, Perry, Jerry, Gary and Karrie arrived as sick kittens with giardia and respiratory infections.  

Giardia was treated and they have all tested negative multiple times. The respiratory viruses, which most cats have been exposed to, continues to cause some of them to get sick from time to time, sometimes requiring eye medication. Our vet also mentioned cats in a shelter environment are constantly exposed and constantly stressed - that causes respiratory infection flare ups. Once these cats are adopted into homes usually the symptoms go away, although occasional flare-ups may still occur.

Karrie is a beautiful mackerel tabby with golden eyes and a friendly personality. She’s always up for a good time and likes human interaction but Karrie is a bit of a wiggly worm and she makes it difficult to take her photo. The other kittens left with her are Perry, Larry, Harry, Gary and Jerry. They are all very different, with different coats and different personalities. One thing though – they are all 100% decidedly cute and very adoptable.

As with most kittens, early human interaction is important to their social development. Play at this stage of a cat’s life is also vital because it increases their physical coordination, confidence and curiosity, and teaches limits while they explore leadership ranking (who’s in charge) and how to be a cat. These kittens will need some special attention and care to make sure they grow into a strong felines. Making sure they eat the right food formulated for kitten growth and receive the necessary vaccinations and spaying/neutering during their first year is also important. Because they are so small we are also recommending these kittens be adopted into families with children 12 years or older.

Please submit an application to adopt one of the kittens. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet the selected cat (or cats!) and get to know him, her (or them!) a bit.

Donation of $100 for cat adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, and a microchip. Applications require a veterinary reference and home visit. We adopt to residents of Orange County, CA and surrounding areas. Please note: For families with children, we require children to be 10 years of age or older, although exceptions are made depending on the circumstances.
