Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some cute kitties? There are dozens of endearing cats up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Oakland.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of cats currently available for adoption.
(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
Trace, domestic shorthair mix
Trace is an adorable male domestic shorthair mix being kept at Maine Coon Adoptions (MCA).
Trace will get along great with other cats. Trace is already neutered, and he has had all his shots. No need to worry: He is already house-trained, too.
More about Trace:
My name is Trace, and if you are looking for a big, snuggly, lap-warmer kind of kitty, I'm your man — eh, kitty. I adore sitting on laps, being held, snuggling in my foster mom's arms, headbutting with my (big) head, and generally being around my foster family.

Silas, domestic shorthair mix
Silas is a sweet male domestic shorthair mix staying at Maine Coon Adoptions (MCA).
Silas loves other cats. He has mastered his house-training etiquette, and he's been vaccinated and neutered.
Here's more about Silas:
Hi there! My name is Silas. Now that's a name you don't hear all that often these days, is it? Not only do I have a super sweet and gentle spirit — with curiosity and affection thrown in for good measure — I have the biggest whiskers around! I also have cute little white patches on my chest. I can be a chatty kitty, and I just love to be with my foster family. I really like people.

Mamacita, calico and tabby mix
Mamacita is a charming female calico and tabby mix in the care of Compassionate Pet Sanctuary.
Mamacita will get along great with dogs and cats. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She's already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Here's what Mamacita's friends at Compassionate Pet Sanctuary think of her:
Mamacita spent years living in the bushes near a Starbucks in Tracy. Her feeder finally was able to trap her when she was estimated to be 10 years old. And she was still having kittens. She’s been kittenless for three years now and is a new kitty. Fast forward two months, Mamacita loves to sit on the floor with you; when you pet her soft fur, she will purr and snuggles up and down your legs. She enjoys a good belly rub.

Perry, domestic shorthair and Bombay mix
Perry is a male domestic shorthair and Bombay mix in the care of Compassionate Pet Sanctuary.
Perry loves other cats. Compassionate Pet Sanctuary, however, wants to place him in a home without small children. He is already house-trained, has had all of his shots and is neutered.
Notes from Perry's caretakers:
Perry is a timid cat but loving and, once he knows you, can be like a dog following you around. He was adopted by an older woman artist who then became ill and had to return him. He needs a patient person, as he can get startled and is somewhat timid, having spent the first few months of his life not getting attention from people. He will do best with a middle-aged person who appreciates a quiet companion.

Here's more about Isabella:
Hi! My name is Isabella, and I'm a classic Maine coon (mix) kitty, with my eyeliner-lined amber eyes, fluffy ruff and sweet spirit.

Rosie, Dilute calico
Rosie is a winsome female Dilute calico cat currently housed at Compassionate Pet Sanctuary.
No other pets please: Rosie is looking for household without other dogs or cats. She is spayed, and she has had all her shots. She's also already house-trained.
Rosie's current caretakers say:
Rosie has a story, but she won't tell it! She was trapped in 2014, presumed feral and released after her spay and vaccines. She was spayed at a clinic that also microchips every cat. In July of 2016, she was surrendered to a local shelter as a stray. She was at risk at the shelter, so we pulled her so we could assess her. Turns out she's not only friendly, she's downright sweet!
