PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BELOW. IT WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. If you still have questions after, we are happy to respond through email.

It is a long read and a long adoption process. Please understand we are ensuring that our babies go to great homes and we don't know you personally (yet). Understand that this is an adoption of a beautiful little soul that deserves the absolute best life.

The average lifespan of a cat is 13 to 20 years. Some cats even live into their thirties, although this is far less common. So don't let that discourage you from adopting an adult cat! Rescue mama has had 3 live into their 20's. One was 8 weeks old.

BEBE, her mom (BETTI BOOPERS) and her 3 siblings (LYNX, COLTON & TIGGER) were living in a bad hoarding situation in Bakersfield, CA. They were living off a dangerous street and people were actually poisoning the cats there. A group of rescuers helped all the cats involved and called us to take these babies.

BEBE and her brother COLTON were adopted together. And to their dismay, their dad passed away. We were called to pick them up and the rescue mama ran to get them. It has been a very hard journey for them. We truly pray that the person that falls in love with BEBE will have the heart to take her brother COLTON too.

Meet BEBE , a sweet 3 year old cat from Bakersfield, CA, whose essence is a delicate blend of shyness and endearing charm, wrapped in a soft, striped coat.

BEBE is a talker with a timid disposition, but once she feels safe, her sweet nature shines brightly. She may start off a bit reserved, but give her a little time, and you'll find a loving companion who communicates with soft, melodic meows. Her favorite time of day is mealtime, especially when wet food is involved. Those big, expressive eyes light up with delight at the sight of her favorite treat, making every feeding moment a special bonding opportunity.

This gentle soul was found in a difficult situation, but despite her past, BEBE has retained a gentle and affectionate personality. She's incredibly close to her brother, COLTON, and their bond is heartwarming to witness. They find comfort and confidence in each other, making them an ideal pair for a home that can welcome them both. Watching BEBE and COLTON interact is a joy—they have a unique way of communicating and looking out for one another that only siblings can share.

BEBE would thrive in a quiet, patient home where she can gradually come out of her shell. She might need a bit of time to adjust, but your patience will be rewarded with her loyal companionship. She gets along well with other cats, especially when introduced slowly and respectfully. Her shy nature means she would prefer a calm environment, possibly with older children who can understand her need for a gentle approach.

As a Tortoiseshell, BEBE carries the classic charm of her breed. Tortoiseshell are known for their affectionate and social nature once they feel secure. They often form strong bonds with their human families, becoming loving and playful companions.

Are you ready to open your heart and home to BEBE and her brother COLTON? They’re waiting to share their sweet personalities and create beautiful memories with you. Reach out to meet this delightful duo and start a new chapter filled with love and purrs.

Could your home be the haven where BEBE's shy whispers turn into contented purrs?

BEBE is a DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / TORTISHELL. She is about 3 years old and 2 month. She is good with cats. She has never been around children or dogs.

BEBE is currently at our rescue in Hemet, California.

************* Please no calls to the rescue. No one available to take calls. *************

If the CAT/KITTEN is still listed (meaning here or other websites) they are still available. It does not mean they don't have other pending applications or meet and greets.

Please note: Just because you fill out an application and are approved does not obligate you to adopt the cat/kitten. If he or she is not a fit...we have plenty of other cats / kittens available for adoption.

We are a SMALL rescue based out of Hemet, California. We are all volunteers that run the rescue. If we haven't reached patient.

We are NOT a government FUNDED shelter and all our donations and adoption fees are for our rescued cats/kittens. So, we do not do DISCOUNTS.

If for some unfortunate reason you missed out on the kitten/cat you emailed about...I'm sure that we could help you with another rescue baby! Just ask!
