Adopt A Senior Cat Month

posted Oct 3, 2017, 10:07 PM by Siva Ho

This month, we want to feature our senior cats that are just as adoptable and purrfect as the younglings. If you happen to be 62+ years old (or think you are a senior), you can even adopt a senior cat 8+ years old and we will waive the adoption fee.  We call it "Senior 4 Senior" and  this adoption program will help make your day so much brighter and give you the companion you so much deserve.

Of course, you will still need to follow our adoption process with an application, landlord approval and a plan for your kitty's future. Our foster parents and adoption counselors will help you find the best match and guide you through the process.

Now meet two of our kitty candidates:


Hi! My name is Hermione and I am a gorgeous red tabby girl about 13 years young. I figure things out quickly even though I don’t see too well. The vet says I am a healthy gal for my age. I only take two inexpensive supplements daily to help my eyesight. I am a quiet, gentle homebody who enjoys hanging out in a less-active home and snuggling on the couch.

Don’t count me out yet, though! I still have a lot of “inner kitten” in me too and I get a little goofy over catnip and cardboard scratchers. You can find me sleeping on the floor in a place where the sun hits – with my front paws curled together and classical music playing… doesn’t that sound peaceful? 

I have always been an only cat in a quieter, adult home – so that is my preference. I don’t need a lot of space to roam, so a smaller home with a single level would be purrfect. Do you have a place for me to live my golden years? I’d love to meet you and make friends!

Cali Ann:

Cali Ann loves her people. Our sweet, mature adult (she is about 9 years old) will sit on our laps, sit near our laps, sleep near our feet and is generally anywhere people are. When we pet her (she loves!) she will raise her paw and touch your hand to remind you not to stop. Cali Ann is gentle and patient, loves to have water running for her drink (yikes! forget drinking out of a mere bowl). In her former life she was allowed outside to sit on the patio and might appreciate that now but she is NOT. NO. NEVER.
EVER allowed out at her foster location. She is slightly independent and can entertain herself – or sleep – for hours waiting for you to return. She loves to be brushed and with her dense short to medium hair it must feel so good! The one no-no is picking her up as she will turn into squirming jello in your arms. She is a small but compact kitty with a beautiful round head, shorter stout legs and shorter thick tail. Definitely British Shorthair in her genetics! We love this little girl – if you can love her too and provide a quiet environment we encourage you to apply to adopt.

For more information on meeting and adopting these kitties, please fill out the pre-adoption application. Your information will be forwarded to the foster parent for follow-ups and meeting arrangement.

The Adoption fee is $60 if you are not a senior citizen. The adoption fee Includes spay/neuter, microchip, worming and flea treatment, current vaccines, vet exam and free 30-day insurance offer. Hermione and Cali Ann are negative for FIV and FeLV.

In June of 2017,we celebrated the fifth birthday of Cat's Cradle Rescue. As a foster-based all-volunteer rescue group, we can only help a small fraction of cats and kittens in our community. But we have, and always will, try our best to care for those that we rescue and come into our foster care. After all, this is all for the love of cats:

Join us at Petco July 22 to learn how you can ~Be A Foster~

posted Jul 20, 2017, 1:24 PM by Siva Ho   [ updated Jul 20, 2017, 1:27 PM ]

This Saturday, July 22, Cat's Cradle Rescue and the Petco Foundation are inviting the public to learn more about the lifesaving impact of fostering animals.

The summer months are a busy time for animal welfare organizations. There is often an increase in cat intake and demand for services. Many of these cats are simply in need of a place to stay while they await a new home. Providing them care in a temporary foster home can help save their lives.

Cat's Cradle Rescue volunteers will be on hand to: 
  • Provide more information about how to become a foster 
  • Accept applications to become a foster family 
  • Introduce families to pets who are ready to be fostered
Learn more about how you can help Cat's Cradle Rescue at Beaverton Petco on Saturday, July 22 from 12 to 4pm.

Need help picking the right food for your cat? Check out this great guide!

When it comes to choosing the right food for our cats, we are always the champion of high quality grain free food. But with so many brands and varieties in the market, it's hard to track and name them all, let alone put them through the test of our kitties' picky taste buds. The Best Cat Food on reviews.com is a great guide and a detailed review.  We hope it's helpful and we would love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Not long ago, our brave little Minerva finally found a loving forever home after months of physical therapy and medical treatment. The successful story of her rescue and adoption is not only a testament of Minerva's strong spirit, but also very inspiring to us as a Cat Rescue group, that "all cats deserve a chance". Her story is now featured in Core Paws' April newsletter, detailing from the very beginning to her most recent progress in recovery.
