CATS AT THE DANCING CAT
Featured Cat: Rocco
Rocco is a handsome 2-year-old Russian Blue mix who is discovering himself after being rescued by us from the San Jose shelter. He is an uber social, fun-loving, affectionate cat who truly enjoys human company. His foster reports he is intelligent, inquisitive, quick to play, loves head-boops, catnip mice, and is quite the acrobat especially when a wand toy is involved! Are you looking for a compelling cat to keep you company? Rocco is looking for you! Rocco tested positive for FIV, which may cause a weakening of a cat’s immune system. FIV+ cats can live normal, long, healthy and happy lives. Rocco is currently in a foster home. , for more information on him click HERE.
Interested in adopting one of our cats?
Q: We fell in love with a cat at The Dancing Cat, can we take her/him home today?
A. When you fall in love there is an online adoption application to fill out that will be reviewed by The Dancing Cat's adoption counselors. This may take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours. This allows you time to prepare your home for your new arrival. Once adoptions are approved, home delivery will be scheduled.
Q. What are the adoption procedures?
A. An on-site adoption counselor will answer any questions you might have about the cat that has caught your eye; we will make all efforts to assure the match is best for you and for the cat. The Dancing Cat reserves the right to review, approve or deny an adoption.
Q. Do you have other cats besides the ones shown here?
A. Yes! We have many cats and kittens in our foster network. These cats and kittens might not be quite ready to go home yet, so check back often.
cats in foster Care
To meet a cat in a foster home, please fill out our online adoption application. This does not obligate you to adopt; it just gets you in our system. We'll then connect you with our foster family so that you can coordinate a time to meet the cat.
We occasionally have kittens available for adoption. Kittens under 5 months old need to be paired with another kitten to aid in socialization. Contact us for details.
From time to time we host cats that have tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (“FIV”) which causes a weakening of a cat’s immune system. Most cats that have FIV live a long, normal lives, both in quality and longevity. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues.
The virus is not contagious except through deep bite wounds, blood, or inherited from their mother. FIV+ cats can live in multi-cat household without resident cats contracting the virus. As their immune system can be sensitive, their health (infections and dental issues) should be monitored a little more closely than most non-FIV cats.
We are following policies set by national animal rescue organizations and accredited veterinary medicine universities. For more information, refer to the UC Davis FIV page and the Best Friends FIV page.
