Where to Find a Kitten Companion in Pasadena on National Cat Day

Published on Oct 28, 2020

The pandemic has affected families in one way or another, but for some, it has forced them to realize they need a new pet companion to get them through the ongoing lockdown.

Well, Thursday, October 29, is National Cat Day, and what better day to adopt a new kitten companion than today!

In Pasadena, there are at least two options through which you can adopt a new kitten on this special day: through the Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA, and through The Cat Posse, a volunteer-operated nonprofit in Pasadena whose mission is to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted and abused cats in Southern California and to educate communities about caring for their cats.

The Pasadena Humane Society currently has all of their pet adoption appointments booked out through the end of October, but will start accepting new appointments on Monday, November 2, at 10 a.m.

Adoption appointments at Pasadena Humane are arranged virtually, through www.pasadenahumane.as.me/adopt.

If you are looking to adopt a pet immediately, you can check Pasadena Humane’s home-to-home adoptions page, www.pasadenahumane.org/adopt/adoptable-pets/home-to-home-adoptions/?swoof=1&pa_animal-type=cat, to view privately cared-for pets that are looking for a new home right now.

At The Cat Posse, an adoption application is posted on their website along with a questionnaire that you need to fill out and submit for consideration.

The website, www.catposse.org, also has pictures and descriptions of the cats available for adoption, and an article describing 10 signs that will show your family is ready for a pet. The article is on www.catposse.org/adoption.

The best way to learn more about the cats at The Cat Posse is to visit their weekly Saturday adoption events, which take place from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies, located at 3120 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena.

During the event, the staff brings a selection of different cats for you to meet. They can answer your questions and, if asked, can also perform some expert matchmaking.

Saturday Adoptions at The Cat Posse are fun informal events for the whole family and are a perfect way to learn about caring for rescue animals.

Other than adoption, if you’d like your kids to learn more about caring for their pets, Pasadena Humane has several webinars and workshops, many of them starting first week of November, where staff and guest experts will demonstrate practical ways by which kids will know how important it is to keep pets comfortable and make them comfortable in your family’s care.
