Meet Berlioz! 

Berlioz is a very sweet, docile, young teen boy who was rescued by a local Baja citizen who would feed this young kitten who occasionally would visit in the evening. He was very hesitant of people, but, with time, he started to trust his feeder. A month ago, he was able to pick him up and keep him at the vet clinic to board him while he requested help to place him up for adoption. He is such a handsome young boy.

When he was at our cat adoption center, our volunteers had gotten to know him and always commented about how sweet and affectionate he is. One of our volunteers recently shared just how much he loves being brushed on the top of his head..a pathway to his heart! His very best friend when at our adoption center and now in a foster home together is young female teen named Figaro.

Foster update: 5/21:

Berlioz : Bear (his nickname) is a very sweet cat, but he needs to get used to your presence/you reaching to pet him. He does not like sudden movements to be petted, but if you get down on his level and let him come to you, he is a purr monster and does not want you to stop petting him.! After a few days of letting him come to us, he now lets us reach out for rubs because he knows he’s going to love it. Bear loves to play with his foster sister and best friend Figaro (who we call Fig) and his foster brother Monty (our own cat). All three play for hours running up and down the stairs, playing with toys (especially feather toys) and sneak attacking each other. Bear is very good motivated, once he hears the bag he goes running up the stairs, so his food intake will need to monitored. Bear would do best going to a home with Figaro or another adult cat who matches his personality. He immediately loved our male cat so there is no problem with him going to a house that already has a male cat.  

Figaro:  Fig (her nickname) is the sweetest cat; she loves to rub on your legs and beg you for rubs. She loves attention, from humans or other kitties. Once you start petting her she doesn’t stop purring. Although she’s not a huge lap cat on her own, once you pick her up, she does like to be cuddled. Fig loves her foster brothers, Monty (our cat) and her best friend Berlioz (we call him Bear.) All three play for hours running up and down the stairs, playing with toys (especially feather toys) and sneak attacking each other. Fig loves food but she’s not super motivated if she’s in the middle of playing. She would do best going to a home with Bear or another cat who matches her personality.

Would you like to meet  this sweet mannered, handsome boy, or if looking for a pair along with his very best buddy, Figaro? First, submit a cat adoption application online for review. A volunteer will call you to finish processing your application and, if approved to adopt, we can schedule an actual meet and greet to interact with this boy. 

Meet and greets can happen pretty quickly as long as applicants can gather all the items from our adoption check list and have them ready. ARWOB does NOT place HOLDS on rescues, so please, only submit an application to adopt if you are READY to adopt within 2-7 days of submitting the application.  Typically, the same day of meet and greet (assuming interaction goes well) is the same day of adoption to avoid multiple meetings.

IF a team member doesn't contact you within 72hrs of submitting an application, please follow up with us via email or phone call, otherwise, it may be overseen.
Submit an application for Buddy today at arwob.org
