Cat Rescue Bleg – Houston Area

From “long-time lurker” Aryeh Warmflesh:

Last night, my kids took in a stray cat they found in a mall parking lot but we can’t keep her. A very beautiful gray cat, female, about 1 year old, I think.

No collar, we took it to the vet this morning to check and no microchip. She’s extremely friendly and sweet, my kids are already attached and super upset about having to give her away, but I think I’m heading for divorce if I don’t find her a home soon.

Anyone know anyone from the Houston area who might be interested in fostering or adopting?

We can help financially with shots etc but can’t keep her much longer.


Leave a comment if you’ve got any contacts. Or, if you prefer, contact me (with the ‘Ask A Front-Pager’ form, or at annelaurie dot bj at gmail dot com), and I’ll forward your message to Aryeh directly.

    Someone might be missing their kitty. Have all the usual places been notified that you found a lost kitty? Maybe I’m wrong, but that seems like step one.

    What a beautiful little girl!! I know they aren’t local to Houston, but Abandoned Pet Project partners with at least one vet in Houston, so they must know of rescues in your area.

    Maybe kitty will grow on spouse? Unless there are allergies involved.

    Mighty cute kitty. Hard to let go.

    And, yes, does look like a kitty that someone might be looking to find. Would check posters at the usual places in your area. And consider putting up a “Found” sign, too.

    Post the picture on nextdoor. If no one claims her, you might find someone who will take the pretty cat.

    Yes, we have looked in the unusual places and alerted shelters, posted this on a bunch of different websites. We have contacted all the rescue orgs and no-kill shelters in the city, so far no space. I wish we could keep her, but its not going to be possible. I’ll also add – we would be happy to take a road trip if anyone within reasonable driving distance is able to take her in.

    *grabs kitty* Oh, I wish. Hopefully, some Juicer can find a wonderful furever home for this sweet ball of cat.

    I want the kitty! Could you ship it by mail?

    Seriously, I know you can’t do that but that cat is so cute!

    Too Virgo of me, I know, but I wouldn’t describe the kitty as “gray”. She looks like a blue point Siamese to me (although probably not purebred). But definitely, agree with rescuer that she is beautiful. Agree someone should be looking for her, but if not, hopefully not too hard to find a home for a Siamese kitty girl.

    @AryehW: good luck. I’ll email a friend in Houston and see if she has any ideas.

    I was going to be in the market for a second kitty come December to keep Mouse occupied. Maybe we could move that up. The only thing I’m concerned about is FIV/FELV negative, because I don’t want to expose Mouse to anything.

    I’m in Baton Rouge, if you would consider that driving distance. (Interwebs shows that’s about 4 hours) So if we can arrange this, I’d be happy to adopt her…..

    You can email me through my business website alchemybookcovers(at) and we can discuss it.

    That looks so much like my male kitten…flamed Siamese

    @jacy: That’s great! I would be willing to make the roadtrip if we don’t have any takers in Houston. I’ll email you later today.

    Awesome! If it works out, she’ll be a very spoiled, indoor kitty, with several people to fawn over her constantly. :)

    Friends for Life does a great job and has a wonderful reputation in the rescue community. They did yeoman’s work during Hurricane Harvey, and might be a good resource for rehoming this little cat if you chose not to work with the rescue itself.

    Good luck jacy and AryehW making a match!
    That’s a beautiful kitten, if all else fails we could set up a relay and my rescue can take her.
    God help me, Becky will kill me.

    She looks like a meezer to me, and I love meezers. But the spousal unit firmly put down my suggestion of adopting a kitten I saw at PetSmart a couple of weeks ago, and I doubt she’d be keen on this cutie, either.

    I have a friend in Dallas who is tragically catless after breaking up with her longtime boyfriend and would love a sweet kitty if we could work out transportation….

    @BubbaDave: Thanks! we could make the drive to Dallas if our current plans don’t work out. I’ll keep you posted via comments here.
