Video Available! Hello, I’m Sylvester, a most lovable cat! I’m 9 years old and a very handsome black-and-white neutered male Domestic Shorthair Tuxedo cat. I have gold eyes and a pretty black nose. I am having a hard time adjusting to the shelter, so I’m sure I will seem shy to you at first. I do love to be held and petted, once I have a chance to know you. I hope you’ll be patient with me – sometimes it takes me a while to be comfortable with new people. Like a lot of kitties, I feel safe in a small space, like a wooden box with windows. I love to look out and watch everything going on around, and I just love it if someone will reach in and give me a skritch. I will probably do best in a quiet home. I am calm, loving, friendly, cautious, gentle, and tolerant. I get along fine with the other cats in my condo. This means I’ll do fine moving into a home with other cats. The volunteers will tell you how much I like to be petted on my neck and head. But don’t take their word for it – come in and see for yourself! Please come in to visit me today, and reference my special cat ID number, A544227, when you come! I can’t wait to meet you!
Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close.
We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!
To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650/340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650/340-7022 x823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.
