Please note that due to the high demand for young kittens, most of our kittens get adopted from our social media posts before making it to this page. Our cats must be fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV tested and microchipped to officiate the adoption, and kittens need to be at least 8 weeks for their spay/neuter procedure. To see kittens that will be soon available, please check our
Facebook and Instagram pages.
All cats are negative for FIV/FeLV unless otherwise stated.
ADOPTION APPLICATION Rocky Balboa, male, 6 months
Rocky Balboa is a beautiful Orange and White 6 month old Tabby. His mother Tiki brought him out when he was about two months old. She was abandoned by her owner and is one of the four cats that his caretaker has been feeding for over 3 years. In December he became ill with an upper respiratory infection, his caretaker brought him inside and nursed him back to health. Their intention was to keep him as a playmate for their other cat Mouse (who was also an outside kitty). Mouse was not having it she wanted to fight him and he wanted to play, so to keep them both safe they have to keep them separate from one another. That’s difficult because Rocky wants to be free and of course doesn’t like being locked up. He’s a brave little boy who loves to play and loves to be cuddled. He would do well with other cats and dogs. Aspen, female, 6 months
Aspen from the East Side is a beautiful tuxedo kitty who is timid, loves playing with her cat friends and would need to have friends in her forever home. Aspen finds confidence in other cats and enjoys cuddling with her kitty friends. She is reserved and careful. She loves watching out the window and would enjoy a home with lots of windows. But she is eager to find her forever family to play with her favorite toy, a wand. Boots and Socks, girl and boy, 5 months
Boots and Socks were rescued this winter on the East Side, already slightly spicy but still at the cusp of socialization but thankfully we had a foster lined up who loves socializing kittens! They’ve made great strides and Socks – the boy with the whiter chin, the spicier of the 2, is cuddling in front of the tv with his foster right now and will be watching the superbowl tonight, which will surely cement his place among humans. Boots the girlie has always been nice from the beginning. With kittens like this, they will always hide in your house the first couple of days, but as long as you give them space and let them adjust to you on their terms the little bit of extra work on them will be worth it. Also with bonded pairs like this, the more social one will bring their companion out of their shell and they have each other to lean on. Jordie, female, 1 year
Jordie was found at the firehouse and she did not leave for days. She was quite friendly so one of our biggest supporters who is also a Detroit firefighter took her home. Jordie is an extroverted cat who loves attention and gets excited when people are around. She will chirp when approached, and loves a hearty petting, especially on the sides of her face. She will let you know when she is ready for playtime with a small bite, and her favorite toy is the laser pointer. She is very intelligent, and always working on opening up the treat container. Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and available now! Big Cheese, male, 1 year, FIV+
Meet Big Cheese – everyone’s favorite! Rescued from the building being renovated on Field St., he came right up soon as he saw me from 100 feet away and waltzed right into the carrier. The first couple of days he was spraying excessively and meowing sadly out the window. Though this is typical behavior of unfixed males, we thought there was a chance he might not be suited indoors, so we brought him into walk-in TNR and they gave him the mandatory ear clip. Alas he also tested positive for FIV, so returning him is no longer an option. Thankfully though, the spraying has subsided. He is the absolute darling of a tomcat, joyfully jumping on my lap, tapping your chin when he’s in your arms, and overall loved by everyone. I was having an especially stressful week when I brought him in and he significantly lifted my spirits. This isn’t the first orange cat we’ve had like this, but something about him gives the Breakfast at Tiffany’s cat vibes more than anyone. He just pulls at your heartstrings like the scene of Cat found again in the rain after being thrown away. He will make someone very, very lucky and happy. Ghost, female, 5 years
Meet Ghost from East Village! Rescued by Clark Park Cats at the end of 2023, Ghost is everything you could want in a kitty and more! She is expected to be around 5 years old, and is such a gentle soul. She has a calm, easy going demeanor, but also has little bursts of energy, and has enjoyed short play times with her cat toys. Ghost has been socialized with dogs, and cats, and seems like she would do well in a home with both animals. However, although she is very calm with her foster’s dog, the little kitten in the house has not been welcoming of late. We believe she would do better in a house with cats closer to her age, as large age gaps like this are not an uncommon reason for kitty tension, even with Ghost’s gentle demeanor. She is also a lap cat, and spends a good amount of the workday curled up on her foster’s lap, or wanting pets. She also enjoys solo activities like being perched on her cat tower bird watching out the window. She really would be the perfect addition to most families! Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and available now! Fiona, female, 1.5 years
Fiona or Fifi showed up on her fosters front porch beginning of August very pregnant and kept coming back every night for food. It was clear she was a stray by how underweight she was. She ended up having one solo kitten and he is now placed in his forever home and thriving, and this little mama deserves the same. She is the loudest purring machine her fosters have ever met and definitely has some kitten in her still. She loves to play with catnip mice and toys. She gets the zoomies and will catch a toy in mid air with no effort. She does have rbf (resting bitch face) but don’t let that fool you she really is the sweetest. We love her so much but think she would thrive better in a home where she can get someone’s undivided attention. Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and available now! Georgia, female, 1 year
Meet Georgia, aka “Momma”, a clever and resilient feline from the University District with a captivating story. Georgia outsmarted ALL trapping attempts while pregnant, surprising her caregivers and fosters with 5 kittens on the exact same day their previous batch of 5 kittens found homes. After successfully trapping them, ensuring safety after a neighbor “joked” about shooting them, Georgia has been a cherished family member since September. Expressing affection through kneading and purring, Georgia shows remarkable resilience. Maternal instincts shine as she adjusts to her surroundings. While she may need time to get comfortable with other kitties, her loving nature guarantees a smooth integration. Microchipped, FIV/FELV negative, and exceptionally affectionate, Georgia is ready to bring warmth and love to her forever home. Adopt Georgia for a purrfect addition to your family! Nimona – female – 1 year
Nimona is a very sweet special kitty who was rescued by Detroit Special Used Books store in the summer of 2023 very pregnant. She gave birth to 5 kittens in the store most of whom have been adopted. She is good with other kitties, never the aggressor but sometimes fears the most aggressive ones. She had been missing her babies at first and now is ready to give all her maternal love to a deserving human. Oreo – 6-8 months – Female
Oreo wound up in a Rosedale backyard practically begging for pets! She is estimated 8-10 months old with a very sweet and active temperament. She doesn’t mind being picked up and will purr for all of your attention. Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and available now! Geofrina, female, 1.4 years
Meet Geoffrina, the latest graduate of the Special Case Program! Geoffrina came from an industrial area not far from the refinery in Southwest Detroit. The caretaker of her colony was adamant that she needed to be adopted, so we took her in to the adoption program, but she immediately found the best hiding place and stayed there for a whole year. Finally, she started to show her face and after several more months of being shy but curious, she is now an effervescent ball of purring fluff. She will vocalize her affection in chirps and meows, demand scritches and cuddles, and break out into play at the drop of a hat. She complains when you first pick her up but as soon as she’s in your arms she’s purring and cooing. Fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and FIV/FeLV negative!
Melinda, female, 3 years, Special Case
Sweet Melinda came around in 2022 from Boston Edison with 3 of her kittens – all of whom have been adopted. She is a mild, reserved lady. She plays well with other cats and has never been aggressive or reactive. She isn’t shy but doesn’t crave human attention either or like being picked up or held. Though she doesn’t mind pets and rubs. Great for someone looking for a low-key cat. Since she’s not a cuddly cat, she has a special case discounted adoption fee of $80. She is fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped and sooo ready for a forever home! Owl, female, 6 years, Special Case (shy)
Miss Owl was left outside in a carrier in the rain all night in front of DACC in 2021. She was shortly adopted in Hamtramck and she came in very scared and shy. When taken to get spayed, it turned out she already was, so she must’ve been someone’s pet, though she wasn’t microchipped. She preferred to live in one bedroom, her adopters office, and slowly got used to him and would sit on his lap during work from home pandemic time. The adopters had another lady cat at the time and Owl avoided her like the plague. They hissed if they made contact but didn’t fight. But recently, their other cat passed away and to their surprise, Owl started coming out of her room! She’s been having fun getting comfy in all corners of the house and has warmed up to people. She definitely needs to be an only cat though. Personality wise, she’s a big grumpy sausage that has grudgingly learned to like people. She likes snoozing in the sun, snuggling your feet at night, and climbing up into your lap for a few pats. Not too into toys unless it’s a string or a laser pointer, but she does love to tear up cardboard cat scratchers and do the post-poop zooms. She has grown on her humans very much but alas one of them developed terrible cat allergies recently, and needs to have a pet free home for a couple of years. Owl is a completely adoptable little chunk but will need time to warm up and single cat attention from her human. Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and with a reduced adoption fee of $60. Artemis, female, 1 year
Artemis is a rare ginger girl of 1 year, rescued in Belle Isle last year with Shredder. She is an extremely effective huntress but can be somewhat scaredy of humans. She is highly energetic, intelligent, playful, and an entertaining companion once you gain her trust. Fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and available now!
