about the event

Join us online for Cat Adoption Team’s largest kitten adoption event of the year: Kitten Palooza!
On June 25, visit the adoption page on CAT’s website to see over 100 kittens for adoption — all in one place! For this event, you can apply to adopt starting at 10 a.m. on June 25 until all kittens have applicants.

As always, adoption applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. For this event, we will begin accepting applications at 10 a.m. on June 25.
CAT does not offer a waitlist or other types of holds for this event.

To adopt during Kitten Palooza, you must be available for a virtual adoption counseling session on Saturday, June 26 to finalize your adoption. Kittens will be scheduled for pick-up appointments from CAT during a Drive-Thru Pick-up Parade on Sunday, June 27.

Please read this important info before the event:

Palooza Pick-Up Parade details

CAT wants to make sure you stay comfortable and safe at the Palooza Pick-Up Parade on Sunday, June 27. Due to extreme heat, we have cancelled parade activities but you will still have a drive-up pickup appointment. Here are some event details to help you plan:

  • Prepare for physical distancing. We ask that everyone remain in the vehicle, except when directly picking up your kitten and related items. We require that all parties in your vehicle wear a mask (covering nose & mouth) while interacting with CAT staff and volunteers (regardless of vaccine status). Thanks for understanding!
  • Please do not bring any pets with you to the event. Your new kitty may already be feeling stressed by travel, and the smell and movement of another animal in the car will increase that stress. Additionally, newly adopted animals should be kept separate from your resident pets for at least 10 days. 
  • Plan to take your newly adopted feline friend directly home after your pick-up appointment. To keep kitty safe and healthy, please drop your new pet off at home before making any other stops. You should never leave a pet in a car unattended, especially in warm weather.
  • Pick-up by appointment only. To help things run smoothly and ensure your kitty is ready for pick-up, please only come to the parade during your scheduled pick-up time. The Pick-Up Parade is open to Kitten Palooza adopters only (other vehicles will be turned away). 

If there is a drastic change of weather, parade activities (other than pick-up appointments) may be cancelled, start late, or end early.
