Any of you fine people in the LA area looking for some feline companionship?
Hi there –
Trying to re-home 2 cats that belonged to our neighbor who died last week. Black-er is Sadie and Orange-er is Kiki. No idea about their vet records but we think they are around or less than 10 years old. Sadie is nicer than KiKi. Can split them up if we have to – he actually took in one of the cats from a neighbor who was evicted a year ago.
Even if anyone knows a rescue that would take them – anything before the manager takes them to the city shelter this weekend.
Thanks for any help –
I am a total dick and was supposed to put this up two days ago but hopegully we can still get Sadie and Kiki.
L.A. is a bit too far, plus, I have just discovered the Der Hund von Baskerville with Cindy & Bert!
I can’t imagine Baskervillian Hunds liking cats.
Do you know exactly where in the LA area?
I will ask my LA friends.
Can’t help but giggle, musing that a post titled Saturday Night Open Thread showing up two days ago would be taken in stride and cause nary a batted eye at this fine establishment.
We are full up on cats, and 3000 miles away.
Thoe are two sweet looking calicos. (Calicos and torties are my weakness.)
In LA and will try to help. Where are they?
They are both cute. Hope they find a home
I’m stuck on the line “Sadie is nicer than Kiki”, thinking that Kiki sounds like my kind of cat.
But, I have my cat quota, and am 1100 miles away. I hope they get a home. They’re adorable, and torties are awesome.
(I’ve had calicos and found them sweet; but boy have I got a tortie now who’s shown me a thing or two. She’s not cat-aggressive (actually shy w other animals); she’s just ‘spirited’ and impulsive. No interest in slowing down either.)
Put down the coffee/Red Bull:
“The greatest man who ever lived died via the death penalty for you and me,” she said. “I’m grateful to him for our future hope because of this. Governments were instituted to execute justice. If it wasn’t for Jesus dying via the death penalty, we would all have no hope.”

The rescue org we got 2 of our 3 cats from may be willing to let you list the cats on their website and show them at their weekly adoption events, but you would have to schlep them out to La Cañada-Flintridge:
Our youngest cat Charlotte is white with patches of black, but she has a very “tortie” personality. Her sister was a calico, so maybe it’s down in her genes somewhere.
We also suspect that she may have some Siamese or Oriental Shorthair in her somewhere based on her vocalizations and some things Anne Laurie has said about Cheryl Rofer’s very similar-looking cats. (I think her Zooey is the one who could almost be Charlotte’s twin.)
@OzarkHillbilly: If it was good enough for Jesus…
What is Sen. Hutchings smoking?

“If it wasn’t for Jesus dying via the death penalty, we would all have no hope”
The only things that you can see is all that you lack
All your crying don’t do no good
Come down off the cross,
we can use the wood
There’s no light in the tunnel, no irons in the fire
And you’re singing lead soprano
in a junkman’s choir
Does life seem nasty, brutish and short
@JPL: The part that cracks me up is that following her logic, crucifying Jesus was justice.
We had a torty named Slash…name pretty much self-explanatory.
That HR intern killed in our latest mass shooting was from my home town. My best friends oldest son was his baseball coach and gave him guidance getting that internship. He and his son spent Friday night and most of Saturday with the family, as that young man was like one of his own.
That little community is having a tough time right now.
News crews in town, so that circus to add to the mix.

Oh, lor’. My husband has been wanting a calico/tortie for years, but they get snapped up so fast here. Can we get an update?

I sure hope they both find new homes! I’m too far away and have two monsters on hand now that tie me in knots sometimes. Both of these ladies are real beauties, the one on the bottom looks like a saucy girl. The one on top though seems to speak to me as if she’s looking for someone to love her.
Keep us updated, please!
You should e-mail John directly. He seems to have put up this post and then not come back to read the comments.
I really hope they find new homes. They look so sweet.
@Aleta: The first cat we ever had that was really mine, Niobe, was a tortie. A wonderful friend, but she definitely had the tortie personality. A diva, ferocious if crossed. When we took her to the vet they’d have to have two people hold her down.
@OzarkHillbilly: Well apparently for her justice means making her happy, no matter who else suffers, which says a LOT about her.
Ohio is far away, but I love them. Will contribute dinero if needed.
@Aleta: I had a ladylike, sweet calico and a feisty tortie who was too bold for her own good, and I adored them both.
Sigh. I appear to be drawn to feisty, independent-minded female companion animals, with all the joys and heartbreaks that that combination entails.
“They’re fiery,” said Front Street animal-shelter manager Gina Knepp.
I swear to dog, that Gina Knepp is One Awesome Woman!!!! She runs Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter and has turned around a kill shelter to an almost no-kill. She has found ways to improve the lives of shelter animals, use a every form of social media, has air-lifted planes full of Chihuahuas and other over represented breeds to states where they’re few, far between and immediately adopted.
If every town had a Gina Knepp, blegs would be few and far between.
I met Chet at Front Street, it was love at first site.
Those Tories look lovely and sassy, I hope they find their forever homes today.
@HumboldtBlue: OMG that’s awesome. Off topic, but have you heard Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot sing Bonnie & Clyde? It’s so cool it levitates. Alors! voila: the song
@Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: Email to John about it! We could I bet easily set up a transport to get her (or them!) to you! That would be amazing!
