Cat's Cradle Rescue

Cat's Cradle Rescue keeps cats out of shelters by offering an alternative to a cage - we are a no-kill FOSTER-HOME BASED rescue group that welcomes cats to our home environments as they await adoption.Why Foster Care? Does your new kitty like children? Does she play with dogs or find other felines too uncomfortable to be around? Does he have consistent litter-box manners? Does he want to cuddle or perhaps his comfort zone is to be more independent. Many life-factors influence cat behavior and while genetics plays a role, we know that human touch, kindness, nurturing and consistency of care are non-negotiable requirements. We provide all of this.

Meet Sigfred & Edmond - Young Brothers

Two abandoned sibling boys 8mths old. Indoor only. White/Grey tabby kitty ~ Sigfred: He has gone from scared and distrustful to purrs. This little guy is quite brave. Having never really been handled by a nice human before, he allowed me to put him on my lap while sitting on the floor. There he sat shaking but kept right on purring while I gently pet him. I know he was absolutely terrified but he decided to give me a chance. He wants to trust and has had such an amazing turnaround. His core personality is definitely a big love bug. Approach him with care and he'll insist on pets and cuddles forever. He is now allowing handling as well, though the height confuses him so he'll need to be picked up slowly for the time being. He will want a little cat cave that he can hang out in to take breaks and feel safe. Sigfred is also a big talker and foodie. I predict he's going to be a big healthy boy and will be more on the social side as time passes.   Black kitty ~ Edmond: Inquisitive. Smart. His drive to play outweighs any jitters that linger from being dumped outside and left to fend for himself. He also wants to trust and will look you in the eyes thinking about it. While he's come a long way from hissing to purring, Edmond will need a slower approach with kindness and patience. Play with him and he'll love you forever. He will also need a little fort to call his own for some 'me time'. Most likely that cardboard box that's been randomly sitting in the corner of your room instead of that pricey felt cat cave you thought would be perfect, but I'd give him the choice of the two anyway. Edmond does allow pets now and will give a loud purr but slow movements are a must for a while until he feels safe with you.   Sigfred and Edmond show no signs of fear of dogs or most likely any other pet that may be around. These two boys have really come a long way in such a short time and I am amazed at their bravery. They truly are special little guys and will soon return all the love and respect they are given and deserved. Neutered, vaccinated, rabies, flea and worming done. Tested negative for FIV and FeLV.   For more information on meeting and adopting this kitty, please fill out a pre-adoption application under "ADOPT" on our website at WWW.CATSCRADLERESCUE.COM. Your information will be forwarded to the foster parent for follow-ups and meeting arrangement.   Cat's Cradle is an all-volunteer, non-profit foster-home based rescue serving Oregon cats who need new homes. 100% of your adoption fee goes to provide for the medical and physical needs of the cats in our care. We invite you to become a foster parent and experience the great satisfaction of helping a cat or kitten in need.

Adoption Process
Adoptable cats and kittens are shown on our website with detailed profiles and pictures. To help our potential adopters learn more about the cat(s), we encourage them to first contact and discuss with the foster family if it might be a good fit. Potential adopters must submit an adoption application for review and evaluation. We also have onsite Adoption Events on a weekly basis. Our adoption counselors are present to handle the interview and adoption process. Our adoption fee for single kitten is $120 and $200 for a pair. Adult cat adoption fee is $60. We require that adopted cats be mainly indoor cats and no declawing is allowed. Adopters must be over 21 years old and sign a contract that lists out his/her responsibility as the cat's owner.

Look for other cats for adoption!
