Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Happy Tails Ending


Do you remember one of our park colony cats I introduced you to back in March? His name is Nemo, after the little fish born with one fin smaller than the other? Well our Nemo’s foster Dad Adam named him Nemo because our Nemo has a tail that is naturally shorter than most cats! Cool, huh?!

If you live in the USA, then you know that many states, especially California where I live, are entering “kitten season”. This is the time of year Mom cats start dropping litters of unwanted kittens. The good news is that there are so many families just waiting to adopt these cute little kittens. They become not very interested in adopting adult cats, especially cats such as our sweet boy Nemo who is now entering his “senior” years at eight years old.

BUT—there is always hope!!!

Mom L started taking Nemo last week to an adoption event at our partner’s, Community Concern For Cats,  pop up adoption site in Walnut Creek California. We finally managed to get him posted to their adoption portal only last Thursday afternoon. Soooooo—we  thought why stress him by taking him back to adoptions today, Sunday, when no one really knows about him,  right? But his foster Miss Joanna said “he needs to get the exposure”, so Dad P decided to take him to the three hour adoption event.

I am not happy here


Nemo found his forever home today!!!! A mom and daughter arrived, spent over half an hour with our Nemo and wanted to adopted him right then and there!!

Nemo was likely born in 2013, and spent the majority of his life in our humanely managed park colony. Our devoted feeders, over the years, socialized him so that he was ready to life the good life inside!

Please join me in sending Nemo your best wishes for a happy life retired to the inside with loving care from kind humans.
