Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some fluffy felines near you up for adoption? There are dozens of great kittens up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Houston.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of kittens currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)


Jet, domestic shorthair

Jet is a male domestic shorthair kitten currently residing at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.

He has been vaccinated. He is already house-trained.

Notes from Jet's caretakers:

I’m a fast mover!  I’ll always be sniffly, my left eye is a little cloudy and I need a consistent diet, but I’ve come a long way from my sickly days. I’m a true miracle kitten! As I’ve grown, I love to chase and jump, purr and make cute little faces that you’ll fall in love with. My favorite toys are mice that rattle and spring toys that bounce!  I’m good at taking naps too.

Wuilty, domestic shorthair mix

Wuilty is an adorable male domestic shorthair kitten in the care of Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.

Fear not: He's already house-trained. Wuilty has been vaccinated.

Here's what Wuilty's friends at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary think of him:

Wuilty wanted to grow up to be just like Quilty, but he kept hitting the wrong key on the keyboard! So he doesn’t judge if you for the tiny mistakes we all make throughout the day. He’s just here for you with unconditional love — As long as you keep the food coming and the toys close by. And maybe some treats too because he really doesn’t mind being spoiled.

Travis, domestic

Travis is a sweet male domestic kitten staying at Animal Justice League.

Travis is the life of the party, and he's happy to keep company with other cats. He's been vaccinated. He is already house-trained.

Notes from Travis' caretakers:

Meet Travis! Travis is a spunky little guy with a nonstop purr motor! He loves to cuddle and will snuggle all the way up to your neck and perch on your shoulder for a quick nap. Travis loves the company of other kitties but pups seem to be a little scary right now because he is still young. He plans to grow up to be a ferocious panther though! If you’re looking for a social, sweet and adorable kitten look no further! Travis is the one!

Smalls will get along great with your dogs. No need to worry: He is already house-trained. He has had all his shots.

Smalls' current caretakers say:

Smalls enjoys company. He knows no stranger and becomes a purr machine as soon as he sees you. He has all the kitten energy and loves all of his cat toys, especially strings and anything that rolls. He is a master at yoga and loves the cuddles when it is nap time.

More from Beauty:

Ever been up a tree? I have. But I found myself trapped and a neighbor rescued me. She has been caring for me while I seek a less dangerous place to call home. I enjoy being with her and her cats. I'm sweet and make chirping noises to let you know I'm happy. If you're ready to go out on a limb and adopt I'm ready to take root in your heart.
