Have you ever considered adopting a young adult cat? While kittens are definitely adorable, there are plenty of good reasons to adopt a slightly older feline friend.
For starters, young adult cats are still young and playful, but they've already developed their own unique personalities. This means you can get a good idea of what kind of cat you're bringing home, which can be hard to do with kittens since their personalities can change as they grow up.
Plus, young adult cats are typically litter trained and have some basic training under their belts. They're often used to living with humans and other pets, so the transition to a new home can be easier for everyone involved.
Another bonus is that young adult cats can be more independent than kittens. They're often content to entertain themselves for longer periods of time, which makes them a great choice for someone who isn't home a lot during the day.
When you adopt a young adult cat from a rescue organization like Garlic City Kitty Rescue, you're giving them a second chance at a happy life. All of the cats we rescue are neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and microchipped, so you can feel good knowing that your new feline friend is healthy and ready to start their new life with you.
Now, let me introduce you to three of our young adult cats:
Willy: Willy came to us from the streets of Gilroy. He was part of a colony (a group of cats) and had a regular feeder. The area was dangerous with a lot of trucks and traffic. One night he barely escaped getting hit by a truck and that is when we knew he could not stay there because he was not safe. Willy gets along with all our resident cats and kittens. He is playful, well-adjusted, calm, and sweet. His fur is silky soft, and he is a love! Willy is hoping to find his forever home soon. That is what we wish for all the cats we rescue.
Bugspy: Bugspy came from the Sacramento area last July. She was rescued along with three other kittens from a lady who does fostering herself. The problem was that this lady was scheduled to have brain surgery and was unable to find a local rescue that would help her by taking in the kittens. They were unfortunately all full. When I heard of her predicament, I had to help. She had no idea how long she would be in the hospital and who would care for the cats. Bugspy is very sweet, vocal, and just a lovely, sweet girl. She gets along well with other cats and is playful and loving. She helps me feed all of the cats in the morning and patiently waits her turn. She is an all-around friendly and social kitty who will make someone a great companion.
Orangie: Orangie lived in Gilroy with a colony of other cats. The shopping center where he lived was going to be leveled, so all the cats had to be trapped and relocated because there was nowhere safe for them to go. Orangie is very friendly, confident, and gets along well with the other cats and kittens. He is playful, calm, and a very good boy. He likes dogs and would do well in a home with kids. Orangie is waiting for his indoor, forever home. Could it be with you?
