DORADO and his 5 siblings (CASSIOPEIA - DRACO - VELA - ANDROMEDA - CARINA) were saved from the shelter in Riverside County. These guys were tiny, sick and malnourished. Don't know exactly where they came from...all we know is that had hours to live. We were asked to help and they went with one of our fosters.
DORADO is now ready for his "FUREVER" home. 80% of orange cats are male. For a female cat to be orange, she must inherit two orange genes — one from her mother (orange, calico, or tortoiseshell) and one from her father (who must be orange). A male cat needs only one orange gene, which he gets from his mother (orange, calico, or tortoiseshell).
DORADO is an orange tabby who is the assistant greeter of his litter. He is a little shy and avoids being picked up but once you have him, he purrs and loves to be scratched on the head and neck. DORADO loves playing with his siblings and the stuffed toys in his room. He is somewhat interested in the resident adult cats in the home but doesn’t go out of his way to engage them probably due to his shyness. DORADO will definitely need a young cat / kitten buddy at home.
DORADO's foster dad named them after the constellations. He says they are his SHINING STARS.
DORADO is DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / TABBY MIX. He is about 4 months old. He is good with cats and non-reactive to with dogs. He has never been around children.
DORADO is currently at PETSMART in Palm Desert, California off Monterey Avenue.

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 out be patient.
DORADO is ALREADY fully vetted.

FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)

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!
