Facts about Franklin

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Franklin has had a rough time of it. He was taken into a local high kill shelter, along with his bonded mate, Eleanor, when his owner became disabled and unable to care for them. Upon initial Vet check, his mate Eleanor was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. He was very devoted to her, doting on her, giving her his bed and food. He was with her until she died. He has gone through a time of mourning. With the help and love of his foster mom, he is now ready to find his forever home.

Franklin has a very loving personality. He never meets a stranger. He is just one of those cats that you never forget. He is FIV/FeLv negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered-He is great with most other cats, although will sometimes challenge other males for dominance-Franklin has been in foster care with a small dog (12 lb maltese/yorkie mix) and has had no issues. It is unknown what his response will be to larger dogs. As with any other animal, Franklin would be great with respectful children.

About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or injured. When they are ready we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
