WOW! These kitties sure have it made at the Kat House!
Who would not want to be rescued from the dangerous streets of LA to come and live here! MEOW!
The Famous Kat House is a private rescue place which I had painted to look like an African jungle by my artist friend, Charlou Westerlund. It even has it’s own private bathroom that is decorated like a tribal hut inside! It is the perfect place for new kittens to get adjusted to people and to be around other cats as playmates.
In the afternoons, you will find the kitties outside on the “enclosed deck” nestled high in the trees. It has three climbing posts and is great for catching bugs and watching the elusive hummingbird! There is a kitty door for easy access to the litter box and to go in and out as needed for weather conditions.

I also provide separate “socializing” areas for feral kittens that need some extra time to bond with humans. These cages are big enough for a kitty condo, bed and litter box. Cats like smaller places to go into for safety when they first arrive at the Kat House. I can sit in the cage and work with each new kitty privately. Once they start purring in my hands, I know they are ready to be introduced to the other kitties in the Kat Room and can now be seen for adoption.
Often I have bottle babies and very young kittens to take care in my rescue work. These precious babies are separated from the other cats and they get to stay upstairs with me for the first few weeks during bottle-feeding.
When they are about 4 weeks old, they are moved to their own “baby” bathroom so that they can run around freely. I monitor each kitten very closely during their growth and I keep a detailed chart on their progress and medical check-ups.

Young kittens are weighed each day to ensure proper growth and they are placed on the highest quality kitten formula. These babies have a covered bed with a heating pad, litter box for training and lots of toys to play all day long! I have assistants come over to help with the feeding and snuggle time! FUN!
After they have had all of their medical work done and they are about 2 1/2 - 3 months old, they are ready for adoption to their new forever homes. It is an amazing experience to come and adopt a bottle baby!
