Dear hoomans,


Meowllo! I’m Lotus, a domestic short-haired bundle of joy. As you can tell by my name, I am part of the flower kitten litter. My sister, Daisy, and I are BY FAR the most social out of the 5 of us.


Upon first meeting you, I may play shy, but that only lasts for (maybe) 10-15 minutes. Soon after, I will be seeking your attention and asking to play. During my photoshoot, the photographer brought a feather toy to keep us entertained and I never wanted to stop grabbing and licking it - even after my photos were done. I kept grabbing her shirt in an effort to get her attention. I eventually got it, because how could I not?


I love my siblings with all of my little heart, so I’d love to go with one of them. But, if you choose to only adopt me, I hope that you will have another pet in the house. I really need that companionship.


I trust my foster parents with all of my little heart and love to be held by them, and really by anyone. I also tolerate the dog that is in our home. She doesn’t scare me! OH, and one more thing: if I enjoy anything, I make it known to you by purring very loudly!

Adoption Fee | $ 149

The feline adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescuing, such as vetting, food, kitty litter and other expenses.

Prior to adoption, cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and given flea treatment. In short, they receive any necessary treatment. 

For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page. alternatively, you can email us and communicate with our Adoption Coordinator:

Why We Love Fostering

  • There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering is such a rewarding experience and works great for us as it is very flexible. We love seeing the difference in their personalities from day 1: from timid and nervous to a happy, healthy, better-socialized dog. It gives them time to decompress before going to their perfect home. Fostering enriches our lives knowing we are saving a life each time, and giving them a better life ahead. It warms the heart knowing you were part of this process.
