Do you have a calm, quiet life? Ever wish for the perfect companion to share that life with you? I would be so pleased to be that cat. I am Pepperdine, and my previous home unfortunately could not be forever, so I have found myself with a foster family at The Cat Connection. I am a sweet girl just looking for a place and a human to call my own.

I am very independent but also loving. Like many people, I enjoy my alone time. However, I will happily come to you when called! It is a common misconception that cats do not know or cannot learn their names and to come when called. We often just have minds of our own! I will not sit on your lap or next to you, but I will seek out your affection when I want it. I am also very playful.

Like many cats, I can be timid at first, but I do relax after a period of time. I absolutely love watching “cat TV”: sitting in the window watching the birds outside or sprawling out in the middle of the room to watch everything going on in the house.

I will do well in a home with someone who has a calm energy and is patient while I come out of my shell and relax. I would prefer to be the only pet in a home without small children. Hopefully my family is out there just waiting to meet me. If you are interested in me, or interested in adding the perfect feline friend to your family, be sure to check out all of the wonderful cats currently available for adoption through The Cat Connection.

The Cat Connection asks for $150 for each cat over 4-years-old, $175 for each cat 1- to 4-years-old, and $200 for each kitten under a year old. These donations fund neutering, vaccinations, and combination testing (feline leukemia and FIV) for your adopted cat, rescue efforts, shelter, and veterinary care. Remember, The Cat Connection’s policy is to adopt kittens in pairs. Kittens are much happier when they have a companion and they tend to expend their youthful energy on each other rather than on your couch! Kittens are adorable, but older cats, like 10-year-old Pepperdine, can be wonderful pets as well, and they tend to be overlooked, so please consider adopting an adult cat or even two!

If you are not yet ready to adopt, you should consider fostering. Without a physical shelter, The Cat Connection can only rescue cats when they have a foster home for placement. If you have an extra room in your home, fostering is a fantastic way to get involved with The Cat Connection. It truly saves lives and helps pave the way to happiness for countless cats. While each cat has individual needs, fostering always involves feeding, cleaning, grooming, and playing with the cats

The Cat Connection provides the veterinary care for the foster cats, and supplies such as litter boxes, food bowls, etc. depending on the need of the household. If possible, The Cat Connection does ask for foster parents to pay for litter and food. As an all-volunteer organization, any and all support is wanted and needed!
