About Havana (Courtesy Post)

Havana is a very sweet older male Russian Blue mix. He is a stray in a residential neighborhood in Martinez, the north-east bay area. He's calm, talkative, and very friendly. He stays by his humans' side for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He doesn't stray far and it is always easy to find him. No one knows his history. People say he has been around for a long time with no home. Neighbors who know him and feed him would like to see him find a forever home where he can live out his senior years. Havana might prefer to be an only pet, as he does not get along well with other cats, and his caretakers don't believe he would enjoy dogs. This has prevented him from being adopted by a few families in the area. He once went to the veterinarian to have a scratch cleaned, and after that he lived indoors for a little while to heal. He used his litter box with no problem.  He is looking for an indoor retirement, but may appreciate a catio outdoor option.  Havana is not owned by The Dancing Cat. To arrange to meet him or find out more, email us at courtesy@thedancingcat.org.

Dot was rescued with her sister Pinky and would love a home where she and Pinky could stay together. Dot started off nervous and shy, but had made a lot of progress while in foster care. She is the more serious, cautious older sister to Pinky, who is the exuberant, excitable little sister. She prefers to watch and let Pinky take the risks first, and then join in.  Once she is comfortable, she enjoys playing with people and eating treats out of their hands, and will join you for a cuddle once she gets to know you. Dot loves to hang out in her little kitty cave, no matter which direction it's facing, inside out, upside down, already occupied, underneath, or on top. She will insist on her new home having an appropriate Dot-approved kitty cave. Dot is not a big fan of being picked up, though can be bribed into tolerating it with the a treat, but is happiest with her feet on the ground. It may take her a bit to join in, but once she gets started she loves to play and will spend lots of time cuddling or chasing Pinky. Dot will need time and patience to acclimate to new people and places and would likely do best in a quieter household, but once she's comfortable, she is a sweet and loving girl and will continue to become more outgoing in the right environment. Dot has tested positive for FIV, which may cause a weakening of a cat’s immune system. FIV+ cats can live normal, long, healthy and happy lives.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Frankie has a resilience and zeal for life that will capture your heart. She is so much more than her origin story but to understand where she is today, we have to acknowledge how far she has come. Frankie was shot with a pellet gun and some of the pellet fragments were lodged into her spine. Despite great efforts and surgery, Frankie remains semi-paralyzed in her back legs. She is undergoing daily physical therapy to stimulate her muscles, which she enjoys and cooperates with, especially if treats are involved.  Despite her therapy, it is likely she will never walk normally again. This does not slow Frankie down in the least! Wind up a toy and watch Frankie go go go! She zips around with the zoomies like any cat, and chases toys and shadows like a pro. Frankie likes to join her foster Mom on the couch or climb up into her cat tree. Nothing stops this adventurer! Except maybe bedtime with her person, she loves to share the bed or couch.    Caring for Frankie requires some experience with cats. She will need to continue her low-level physical therapy routine. Frankie can't totally control when she pees or poops. To prevent leakage and to avoid clean-up, her bladder is expressed three times a day. Any potential adopter will need to understand, learn and commit to properly caring for Frankie's needs while understanding they may change in the future. Frankie eats out of a slow feeder to help keep her weight at a healthy level.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Kelly is a total catch for a family or multi-person home looking for a fun-loving and engaging kitty! He's very brave and social. Kelly will even fall asleep in your arms if he's not in a playful mood. Kelly is always curious about his surroundings and new people, every day is an adventure for him! He is very high energy and requires a lot of play, at least 2-3 times a day in 20 minute sessions. Luckily he will knock out afterwards! He is very food and treat motivated. He will follow you around the house and love to be involved in everything you are doing, especially if he can "help" by laying on anything you are working on. During the day, especially afternoon, he might nap on the chair right by you, on the floor, on the carpet, etc. At night, Kelly might choose to nap on the blanket by your bed, or just under your bed. He loves chin and cheek rubs! Sometimes he will gently reach out and pull your hand to his face for pets. Kelly loves to play in the morning (10am-12pm) and evening (7-11pm). He gets the zoomies in these two periods and might jump and run in circles in your apartment/house. So please be prepared for a high-energy cat and play with him for some time to make sure he gets enough play! Kelly has a dog-like personality and doesn’t stay in one place for too long. Kelly can over-stimulate at times and bite hands when he has a lot of energy, this is something you have to work with him on. Due to his high energy and desire to have lots of territory to run around in, small homes/apartments are not suited for him.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.   show less

Kitkat is a sweet independent cat who likes to get cheek rubs and pets, but most definitely on her terms. She and her feline roommates recently had their lives turned upside down when their owner fell ill and could no longer care for them. Still adjusting to her new situation, Kitkat is a bit unsure. However, you need only to sit with her for a bit to see her sweet nature.The adopter will need to be very patient and let Kitkat come to them. Kitkat loves to chase wand toys and is very fast. She might be interested in other non-dominant cats but still a bit fearful.  Kitkat is underweight and has a condition better known as "Pillow Paws," and while this is resolving she needs some minor care in the process. She has a tendency to sit with her right front paw elevated. That particular paw has 2 open lacerations on it. They have a tendency to heal and then re open so they do seem to still be sore for her. The other paws are still swollen but not as bad. Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped. This cat is at The Dancing Cat, our adult cat adoption lounge located at 702 E. Julian St, San Jose CA 95112.  The Dancing Cat is open by appointment only for adopters to meet our cats. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.  More information about this cat and all of our adoptable cats can be found at www.thedancingcat.org/cats.   show less
