You may recall a few weeks ago I posted photos of some adorable black cats and kittens. I discovered they were living under a neighbor’s apartment, and while they seemed to be in good health, I knew something had to be done. This past week, I caught them all, had them fixed and vaccinated and now they’re looking for homes.

Let me introduce you! There are two sweet black cats, one boy and one girl. Despite growing up outside, they are really affectionate and love to snuggle and be petted. They often purr when they eat and then will come and nuzzle me afterwards. They’re also very playful and love to do kitten things: playing with toy mice, chasing tails, all the cute stuff.

I don’t have an exact age for them but I’m guessing 3-4 months old (this is a total guess by the way) but they are definitely under 6 months. They’ve been using a litter box all on their own, natural instinct and all. They’re both fixed and vaccinated as I mentioned, they’ve also been tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Plus, they’re microchipped just in case.

Luckily, their little grey sister is going to go live with my mom. Her name is Cami. She is the most timid of the bunch and only half the size of her brother and sister. She was also the hardest of all to catch.

If you’re interested in either of these darlings, and live in the Los Angeles area, please email me at veganbakesale at gmail (or by clicking the email me link on the sidebar).

Last, but certainly not least, if you’d like to do something to help feral and abandoned cats please consider donating to one of the many organizations who help with adoptions as well as sterilization. I recommend Fixnation and Best Friends Animal Society.

UPDATE Both little Cami and her brother went to their new homes this weekend. Hooray! And the little girl? Well, read more here.

  1. Kudos for helping out these little kitties! If I didn’t already have my hands full with my dog I would swoop one of these guys in a second.

    Aww they are adorable! Crazy thing seeing these photos because we just moved into a home that is kind of in the country and we discovered some feral cats that live near us. The young cats are black too and healthy looking. They are precious. Ive tried to get near them but they run away so quickly? I would love to adopt them as my own but they run so fast I can’t get near them. How did you catch the cats you found?

      We caught them using humane traps. I fed them for several weeks outside so they were used to me and then started giving them food in the traps (without catching them) so when the time came to get them & take them to the vet it was fairly easy.

    They’re adorable! If we didn’t live in Michigan I’d grab one of those right away. Thank you for getting them taken care of. You’re so great!

    I am so happy your mom is taking the grey one!

  6. Nick says:

    Wow, good luck with the cats. I’m glad your mom can take one and that they are socialized well to humans. I’ve been seeing little kittens running around on the streets near me so I’m worried about them.

    Did the organization you’re working with require the tipping of one ear? I thought that was only done on cats that would be trapped, fixed, and released, or TNR.

  7. Lacey says:

    awww, they’re so adorable. I would guess they are closer to six months than you think, mostly because neither of my cats weighed enough to be fixed until they were around six months old.

  8. Sara says:

    Thank you so much for what you guys did here! Vaccinations and spaying/neutering is no small or inexpensive task! You and Shawn are feline heros!
