Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Create a Happy Tail Ending for Starlight


I know it is kitten season across most of the USA and for sure it is right here where I live in Northern California’s San Francisco bay area. So it makes it real hard for this darling three year old cat Mom L recently pulled from the established cat colony she is helping manage, care for and feed. This little girl is so petite, and incredibly friendly which is what drew Mom L to her as soon as she first noticed her in the colony.

Likely the kitty was abandoned at the city park where this colony resides and she was trying to make a place for herself with the colony. Mom L noticed her first because she was so little, then because she was friendly and finally because she was having to tussle with some of the bigger cats to get her place at the meal table.

So Mom L picked her up and plopped her in a carrier and off she went to Contra Costa Animal Services where she received her name “Starlight”. PURRFECT!! Don’t ya think??

She managed the car ride and carrier pretty good.

Mom L has been workin’ with Starlight but the best part is all the support Starlight is gettin’ from the dedicated cat volunteers at my former shelter home. Yes, that’s right. I spent about two months at this very same shelter before I was transferred to a not for profit rescue with a free roaming cat shelter…but enough of me.

This is about Starlight! Check out the wonderful promotion video Miss Mary, a volunteer, created for Starlight and she posted it on a Face Book page Smart Paws Pet Resources for Contra Costa shelter animals.

This is the delightful little photo story Miss Mary created for Starlight and it can be viewed on her Pet Harbor page here.

“That feels great. Can’t wait to join a new family & have people to love.”

“Is that someone coming to meet me? I hope I find a family soon!”

“I adore cheek scratches, treats, and friendly conversation with my pals.”

“I’m a connoisseur of the head scratch, and this one gets an A+!”

“I’m Starlight…

Starlight… star bright, first star I see tonight…”

“…I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight (my own family!)”


Starlight had lots to tell Mom L when Mom L visited her for the first time at the shelter.

I must say they have been super nice here

Starlight has a growing fan club at the shelter and no one can believe that she is still waiting for her true family to find her.  Why just check out how cute her little dainty paws are!! She is very small, weighing only about six pounds.

Mom L can’t pull many more friendly adult cats from the established colony ‘cuz it is kitten season. Most people going to the shelter are looking for kittens so they overlook a precious adult like Starlight.

Will you, my readers, help me help Starlight get the work out that she is ready to meet her new family? Please share this blog post on every social media network you like to take a paw to. I’ll give you my best paw pats if you will let me know in comments if you are willing to help me with this Paw It Forward project…let’s create a Happy Tail Ending for Starlight, ok?

    Starlight is gorgeous prayers she will soon have her forever home and a big thank you to your mom for rescuing her.x😸😻🐾🐾

  11. Such a beautiful sweetie, we shared.

  12. She is so beautiful! I have noticed here, in Finland, many people want to have an adult cat from a shelter. Earlier they were the last ones to have a home. I think one of the reasons is that they are easier than a kitten.

  13. OMC, Starlight is SUCH a sweetheart! I really hope she finds her home soon.

  14. Will share every day for Starlight!!! EVERY DAY!!!!!

    You are such a beauty and trust me young lady NOT everyone is looking for a kitten OK? When we looked after we lost little we took two youngsters but NOT kittens. Don’t give up hope!!

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
