San Francisco Cat Rescues & Shelters

The Option Everyone is Talking About in San Francisco – Adoption!

Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in San Francisco – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.

You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a San Francisco pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in San Francisco is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a San Francisco animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.

You may be looking at the options, and wondering what the difference is between buying a cat or kitten you see advertised for sale in the San Francisco newspaper, for instance, and adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter. One main difference is the feeling you get from knowing your choice is actually saving a life. When you adopt a cat or kitten from a San Francisco-area shelter or rescue group, you’ll not only save the life of the cat you’ll call your new best friend, but you’ll be helping another cat by creating an open space at the shelter. And your new cat will show you vast amounts of gratitude every day!

Interesting. Ocicats were also an “accident”

2006-07-31 20:28:44 by Lokikat“In 1964 the original Ocicat was the unexpected result of an experimental breeding which attempted to produce an Aby-point Siamese. Virginia Daly, noted CFA breeder living in Michigan, knew the possibility of getting the sought after Aby-point and was willing to invest the time she knew it would take to breed the two generations that were necessary. But the ivory kitten with golden spots was a surprise! Mrs. Daly’s daughter named the breed the Ocicat, because of its resemblance to the ocelot. Tonga, the first Ocicat, was neutered and sold as a pet. When the Detroit newspaper publicized the lovely spotted cat and when noted geneticist, Dr

The parasite protocol that many breeders in the US and UK follow involves treating all kittens with Baycox for Coccidia before showing any symptoms.
These same breeders use caution and test before bringing cats into their catteries, but things can and do happen.
Additionally, testing for coccidia does produce false negatives and cats can be shedding oocysts in the stool, I believe, without showing clinical symptoms or showing symptoms believed to just be IBD.
I would extend QT for any cat showing diarrhea regardless of negative test results, and I have done so in the past until it was proven to be sensitivity to a certain food
