About Mocha (currently in foster)

Age: ~7 / Weight: 10 poundsSince we are the spokespeople for SCI (Sassy Cats International), we bring you: MOCHA. 馃惐 Short for: "if you don't sweeten it up first it will be bitter," this fabulous feline will have all your neighbors talking. 馃棧She has those unique, blue crossed-eyes that only add to her charm. A congenital defect, she gets around just fine, but sometimes likes to leap towards moving objects without really knowing what exactly she's after! 馃槵She's made it (LOUD) and clear, that he hates dogs. She takes some time to warm up, but will be purring beside you in no time. Her only ask is you give her the world, her space when she wants it, and pat茅 for life. 馃樇Mocha knows what she wants in life - independence, freedom, all the good stuff a mature girl could want. She's your typical Siamese - full of purrrsonality and spunk. She loves to explore her kingdom, watch the birds through the window, and be near you. She will let you know what she likes and what she doesn't. Other animals are not her thing, so she'd like to be the only pet in the home. This girl's clear about her boundaries! If you're looking for a Queen to spoil, look no further!I'm a: Sassy PantsHere's what her foster had to say about her: "I have been fostering this beautiful kitty, Mocha, since the end of July through the Santa Cruz SPCA. I thought I'd come on here and tell you all about her, in case you're interested in adopting :) Mocha is a 7 year old spunky Siamese, full of personality! She is super friendly, and will come right up to you or your houseguests the moment she meets you! Some of her favorite hobbies include birdwatching out the window, and making biscuits on you or on a fuzzy blanket. She is a total sweetheart, and (after a few weeks of warming up) will grow very attached to you (in the best way). She starts purring as soon as I get home from work, and loves to follow me around and see what I'm up to. She loves to curl up on my lap, but is also independent, and will get up to do her own thing after about 20 minutes. You'll know she's really happy and relaxed when she starts drooling! Unlike her breed stereotype, she is not overly talkative, but often responds when you talk to her! She has never kept me up at night meowing. She also has excellent litter box habits. Her favorite food is seafood pat茅, mixed with some water (I call it a soup!), and she loves her dry food as well."

Age: ~10 / Weight: ~14lbs Sweet Bhodi boy is one of our Home for the Holidays featured pets -- and that means his ADOPTION FEE IS WAIVED! Bhodi was first adopted back in 2019 and, unfortunately, had to be returned due to a cross-country move. He's been looking for his next adventure since June, but is currently hanging with an amazing foster family. Meet Bhodi! He's a senior boy who just likes to chill and do what he wants on his terms. Being picked up? Nope. Pets? Yep! They say he's a total love-bug, but does take some time to warm up. Once you're besties, he'll follow you around wherever you may go -- especially into the kitchen when you're cooking. He likes a good cat tree, especially if it provides a view of all the lands. He'll also curl up on your chest for some Netflix and chill any night of the week. Just keep those cheek scritches and head massages comin'!It seems Bhodi has developed some arthritis in his back end and can be a bit sensitive in the hips, so he asks for gentle handling only -- and some joint supplements thrown into the mix! But his hips don't keep him down, he's still got some height to his jumps even though he's not the most graceful cat you'll ever meet. However, he's the handsomest! Who's got a thing for the forever brooding face?A couple other Bhodi bits, he does prefer to be the only furred family member and would like a somewhat quiet indoor-only home. Other than that, all he asks for are some good eats, some great lovin', and a home for the holidays (and beyond!).Remember, his ADOPTION FEE WAIVED and a trial period is available. If Bhodi sounds like your kind of perfect, start by reading over our Adoption Process and submit an Adoption Profile online! show less

Calling all Bulldog lovers -- we've got one for you! We expect him to be a popular dude, given his breed, but we are looking for a certain kind of special sauce to pair this meatball with for life. That means, he's looking for a particular kind of forever home in order to thrive -- and we won't stop until we find it! Major was surrendered to us by his previous owner and was very dearly loved. He has your typical bulldog stuff going on -- ear/eye -- and will require drops/ointment for his lifetime. All those folds and yeasty skin... If you know, you know! His eye condition, also known as "dry eye" has impaired his vision a bit and causes him to see things a bit funny, which in turn, causes him to sometimes react a bit funny to things. For example, he will sometimes bark and get irritated at a perfectly normal bookshelf or an innocent trash can. We don't totally understand why he does the things he does and for this reason, he will be most successful in an adult-only home.Major lived his whole life just him and his person in the home. And he's made it perfectly clear that's how he'd like to continue. He's okay meeting other dogs on the street when out for walks and is generally pretty polite with the quick sniff and pass-by but when it comes to sharing his home-base, he's not a fan. He's also maybe TOO BIG of a fan of cats. So if your fur nest is empty, Major could be for you! This hunk of a chunk is your typical bulldog -- strong-willed, dopey, silly, all the things. Every day he's bull-dozen'! He's generally a happy guy who doesn't mind meeting new people, loves playing with his toys (especially his peanut butter mango), enjoys car rides, and likes to lay around. show less

Pluto

Domestic Short Hair

Pluto is truly one in a million -- he's hilarious, he's adorable, he's smart, he's curious, he's a love-bug, and he's INCREDIBLY active.... show more

Pluto is truly one in a million -- he's hilarious, he's adorable, he's smart, he's curious, he's a love-bug, and he's INCREDIBLY active. We felt the need to emphasize that last piece because this guy is a party animal. An "adventure cat" if you will. He wants to do all the things, all the time. In fact, his fosters have taken up daily leash walking, cat wheel training, toy training, and supervised catio time in order to meet Pluto's insatiable need for speed -- and entertainment. We are looking to find a family equally committed to providing Pluto with 100% indoor environment while being prepared for *supervised* outdoor experiences. What does that mean? Preferably you'd be able to provide a catio and for the greatest success, providing daily leashed walks in a space away from any roads.We mention all of this because in one of Pluto's past lives, he didn't do so well as an indoor/outdoor cat and had an unfortunate run-in with a vehicle. Luckily he survived, but came away with a broken jaw and one less eyeball. He's all healed up and perfectly healthy at this time. But for the next few lives, Pluto needs to be an indoor-only cat. Have another young and playful cat or a cat-friendly dog? That's awesome! Pluto has not been in a living situation where he's had the opportunity to be fully introduced to other animals but we think having a playmate or another buddy in the home could be good for him. That said, there should be the expectation of a slow and monitored intro. Pluto is impeccably litter-box trained, enjoys a solid routine, generally scratches in approved locations, has learned not to jump on surfaces like tables and counter-tops, and does have an "off" mode from time to time. He's also very friendly and affectionate in his own way. He enjoys being close to his people, inviting himself up for shoulder rides, however, he isn't much of a lap cat and prefers to rest nearby instead. We have a ton more information about this love-able dude and we don't mind sharing it! So, if you're interested and/or have further questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our adoption staff.Oh, and go watch his video! show less
