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.
YAMATO and her 6 kittens were living in a tough area in Compton, California. These poor babies were living in someone's back yard in the heat. She was fixed and brough to our rescue to recover. It was discovered that she is a very sweet girl. We were also informed that her kittens all passed away. They were saved by a different rescue.
So YAMATO (named after the anime: ONE PIECE) has known the street life for a very short time. With all the tragedy that has happened to this girl, she deserves to be have a wonderful home. She has now been living a nice pampered life.
YAMATO can be shy at first. When you pick her up, she will stay still and allow pets. She has never had a home, so it will take her time to adjust. She has lived in a cat room at our rescue.
Oh and if you look at her sweet little face, she is slightly crossed-eyed. She's a DOLL!!
YAMATO is DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / TURKISH VAN MIX. She is over 2 year and 1 month old and is good with cats and non-reactive to dogs. She has never been around young children.
YAMATO is currently at our rescue in Hemet, California.

************************ NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS ***********************
NOVEMBER 2023: VOLUNTEERS are the only ones allowed to let you meet the kitty. Not PETSMART employees.
Volunteers are usually at PetSmart between 9 am to 1 pm for cleaning. The cats currently at PETSMART you are allowed to go visit. A good time to come visit is at 4 pm - 9 pm. They are only there in the evening for 3 hours so please call the PetSmart location, email us or visit the cattery for VISITING HOURS. Most days are different 3 hour shifts. It's based on volunteer availability.
The kitties at a foster/rescue homes, we will accommodate as much as possible. But steps 1-6 of the ADOPTION PROCESS need to be done before we do OFFICIAL MEET & GREETS. It is easier to do the meet and greets at the locations listed below.
in Murrieta, California off Madison Avenue
in Hemet, California off Florida Avenue
in Palm Desert, California off Monterey Avenue
The crazy rescue mama will drive kitties to their new home, meet & greets, etc...once the adoption phone interview and home check have been done.. Gas donations always appreciated!
********** PLEASE NO CALLS. NO ONE IS 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 out....be patient.
YAMATO is ALREADY fully vetted.
The adoption fee of $200 covers:
FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)
Stronghold Flea Control
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!
If you have any questions not covered here, please feel free to email us:
