About KitKat

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.

We are so happy to announce that Audrey is available for adoption. Audrey is estimated to be 4-6 years old per our vet. She came to us from San Jose Animal Care Center after being left behind during a family crisis. After learning she was safe and loved in her foster home, she began to show her true self, which is silly, sweet, and whimsical like Audrey Hepburn. She craves kisses and head scratches. When she sees or even hears her foster mom, she comes out and rolls over on her back, and nudges her hand when she stops petting her. She does get very excited during petting sessions, and will swish her tail. Her coat feels like the most luxurious velvet you've ever touched. She has chocolate highlights when she sits in the sun. What Audrey loves most is to cuddle with you in bed. She will sit or sleep close to you and loves to receive kisses. Audrey will be most comfortable in a quiet home. For example: no young children. She is a wonderful companion looking for her true forever home. Audrey is spayed, up to date on vaccines and flea meds, and has been dewormed. She has had a full checkup at our vet and got a clean bill of health. Audrey is being cared for by a member of the community.  To arrange to meet this cat or find out more, email us at courtesy@thedancingcat.org. show less

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. Our adoption application is on our website here:  www.thedancingcat.org/adopt   show less

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
