*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the cats listed as Coming Soon. These cats have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
My name is Tama, which means “son of” in Maori (so my full name is te Tama o Tui since my mother’s name is Tui).
I am the biggest in my litter, but I am also the shyest. I am very talkative and will run to my foster mum and chat away. I like to be picked up and cuddled but only when I say so. Otherwise, I will follow you around to see what you are doing, a born supervisor!
My foster mum says I have the sweetest face and the softest fur, as well. Maybe you can confirm that!
Given my love for my siblings, I would be happy to be adopted out with my brother, Tama, but I can also go solo - so long as you are able to give me tons of attention!
If you would like to be considered for the position of my furever home, please feel free to apply to adopt me [below/on our website via this link:][c][d]! ALL INQUIRIES REGARDING ME MUST BE EMAILED TO firstname.lastname@example.org.
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: email@example.com.
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
I have always loved animals and I spoil my own pets enough, so I figured "Why not try fostering?" That's when everything changed. I found that fostering is incredibly rewarding, because not only do you care and love each cat that comes into your home, but you get to send them to their furever homes and see the adopter’s faces light up when they meet them. Building the foundation of the kitties is what makes fostering such a wonderful experience. There is truly nothing better.
