Kitties available for adoption
Cactus Cats Rescue has adoption proceedures that are strictly followed. All of our animals are previously altered and have had at least their first vaccines or a booster. Every cat is tested for FIV/FeLV and cared for by knowledgable foster parents in loving environments. Our adoption fee is $115 fore adults and $125 for kittens. We will consider a discount if the adopter is interested in more than one kitty at the time of adoption or if the cat is a 'special needs' or an older cat.  You can fill out an application for anyone you see online and e:mail it to inquiry@cactuscatsrescue.net or come down to Adoption Day and find your new family member.

Gooby

Meet Gooby!  Gooby was abandoned in the streets after his home (a hoarder with 40+ cats) passed away. He has some type of trauma early in life to his eyes, but can still see very well. 

Gooby loves to be pet, likes his belly and butt rubbed, likes to talk, likes running water (plays in our water fountain), likes other cats, loves to lounge, and is extremely affectionate to people. 

Please consider giving Gooby that happy ending he deserves.

Rose

Rose is an awesome little girl. She came to us with her mom and her sisters. They were all rescued by a wonderful gentleman who brought them into his home and raised them. This wonderful man gave their mom "Miss Kitty" her forever home. 

Rose like her sisters is a bit shy at first but when she gets to know you watch out. She will turn on her kitten full mode and it becomes playtime. She also like feather toys, crinkle balls and squeaker toys. She loves her sisters and also like all kittens wrestling is an all time favorite past time but don't forget to add in the chasing down the hall. 

If you are interested in Rose come to Petco on I-10 & Ray Rd on Saturday from 11-3, call our Hotline or message us through Petfinder. Don't forget to ask for her foster mom Tracy.

Midori

Midori is an extremely sweet girl. She loves and craves human attention. She loves to have her head and chin rubbed and will begin to purr almost right away. when she sees you she lovers her head at you almost saying come on I'm hear it's time for some lovin! She loves her treats! We are not sure if she really likes cats yet. She had only been with us less then a week and the pecking order is still being set in the house. She will hiss at the dog but has not hurt him at all. However she has been very closely watched with all cats and the dog. Never has she been around children. If she is adopted a very slow introduction to cats, dogs and children is strongly recommended. If would not be her fault if something happen and there was no introduction done with other pets or children. So please think before adopting. She is a wonderful girl and would make anyone's life wonderful and awesome if instructions are followed.

Jackie O

Jackie O is a very sweet and wonderful Lady. Her wonderful owner had to surrender her and her house mates due to have to care for a disabled family member and she wanted her kitties to have the love and attention that they needed. She loved her very much and we promised to give them and get them loving homes.

Jackie O is such a wonderful lady. She prefers humans to other cats but can live with cats just fine. (Just a bit of growls, no fighting) She doesn't mind living with dogs either and lives with a very large dog now in her foster home. She just prefers to be by herself. (typical tortie) She like to be next to her people on the couch or at night in bed. You can't tell from the pictures but Jackie O is a very large lady (slightly overweight) and is currently on a diet from our Vet. If adopted quickly she will need to continue her diet until she is at a healthy weight for a very ling life.

Jackie just had surgery and will be ready for adoption shortly. 

If you would like to meet Jackie O please come and meet her at Petco on I-10 & Ray Rd In Ahwatukee on Saturdays from 11-3 , call our hotline or message us through Petfinder. Don't forget to ask for his foster mom Monica.

Basil

Basil is a super sweet boy. He is a laid back cuddle bug lap cat. He loves his humans and prefers to sleep with you, but all over you and on you! He does not like to be alone and will follow you around and will cry if he can't see you. Basil is just your all around lover. He is an indoor cat only. He really loves to play with his mice toys and we think he would totally enjoy a laser point and wand toys. If you have a dog it must be a very slow introduction over a few weeks. Cats are OK but dogs only a slow intro is best as well. Basil would like to stay with he brother but understands if he can't and would do well on his own.

Remember if you can't adopt please sponsor the cat you would like to adopt and help make their life a happy one.


If you are interested in Basil come to Petco on I-10 & Ray Rd on Saturdays from 11-3, call our hotline or message us through Petfinder. Don't forget to ask for his foster mom Blanca.

Bronte 

Bronte is a very sweet, curious and independent boy. He likes to explore his surroundings and find new things to see and do. He likes to watch TV next to you on the couch but sometimes prefer to sit and curl up on the floor. He is not crazy about being picked up but when scared he gets comforted by being held like a baby over your shoulder. He will also flop like a Ragdoll in your arms. He is the type of kitten that does not get upset easily. He would do very well with small children. He lives with a small child now and allows he to pick him up any way he wants, but adults not so much. Figure that out! He likes mice toys and catnip and might enjoy a laser pointer like his brother Basil. He would like to stay with his brother but it's OK if he can't. he understands. 

Remember if you can't adopt please sponsor the cat you would like to adopt and help make their life a happy one.


If you would like to meet Bronte come to Petco on I-10 & Ray Rd on Saturdays from 11-3, call our Hotline or message us through Petfinder. Don't forget to ask for his foster mom Blanca.

Soju

Soju is such a sweet little girl. She is the shy girl of the litter and needs a little extra time to come around. She will need extra lovin and huggin and holdin. 

She has beautiful dark brown stripes next to her eyes and around her front legs. She has the cutest little orange nose and her eyes just make you fall in love with her. Once she become totally comfortable she will run, jump and play like every other kitten around town. Her favorite toys are feather wands, cat dancer wand, and of course the laser pointer. She likes to run and chase and wrestle with her brother and sister all over the room. Give her your heart and she will give you hers.

Remember if you can't adopt please sponsor the cat you would like to adopt and help make their life a happy one.

Abby

Abigail (Abby) is the smallest and sweetest. She is very social, loves most everybody and will follow you everywhere. Her favorite thing is to run in front of you and plop down so you will pet her. This cat even likes the vacuum! You can do anything to her and she thinks it's fun! Abby gets along great with kids and would be fine with other cats. She has not been around dogs but her personality is such, she would probably be fine if the dogs were sweet. She would NOT like to be by herself and would be very sad if she was left alone without a friend on regular basis.
Our Kitties are beautiful blue-eyed, Linx-Point Siamese (mix). There are 2 sisters and a brother - approximately 4 ½ years old. They have been with us for 4 years. The 2 Females, Abigail (Abby) and Krystal, are super friendly and love to be around their people. Simba, the male, likes to hang out on sidelines but is very shy.

We are trying to help the owner keep these three beautiful siblings together. Only serious inquires only, there are three cats needing to stay together here. If you are not interested on all three please do not respond.

Krystal

Krystal is the princess. She's independent, athletic, sweet, and beautiful and loves being around her people. She loves her siblings but mostly tolerates them. She would probably be fine as an only cat but would probably be OK with other cats/pets as she can stand up for herself. She is comfortable with kind children and is very loving with our boys. She does not like to be held but LOVES to sit next to you for long petting sessions. She will be shy at first but quickly warms up to friendly people.

Simba

Simba is our big and handsome male. He is a shy guy and not very social with people. Simba and Abby are best friends and Abby provides him comfort and reassurance. I would love to see these two sibs stay together.

If Simba were to be adopted on his own, he would best fit a quiet house with people who understand he is not going to be a lap cat and are OK just allowing him to be who he is. He likes to hang out with his people but will usually run away if you try to pet him. When I’m alone with him, he will often jump up on the coach and asked to be pet and once you start petting him, he doesn't want it to stop. With time and patience - he will come around. It just has to be on his own terms. And although he is very cautious, he cannot resist a cat treat – and will take treats from your hand.

Ernie

Ernie is a very meek little boy. He can be a bit shy at first but in a few days he comes around then will become your best friend. He loves rubbed all over his head and ears. Chin rubs are a plus for him and please don't forget the butt scratches. You know elevator butt happens daily with those scratches. 

Ernie has a beautiful shiny black coat with a cute button like white spot on his chest. he will make a best friend for anyone. 

We have only had Ernie for a week or so and we are still learning all about him. We know that we has lived with other cats, dogs do scare him and we do not know if he has seen children in a home setting. The key with Ernie is a slow introduction.

Remember if you can't adopt please sponsor the cat you would like to adopt and help make their life a happy one.

If you are interested in Ernie come to Petco on I-10 & Ray Rd on Saturdays from 11-3, call our hotline or message us through Petfinder. Ask for his foster parents John and Kathy.
