Facts about Tinker

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8549380
  • Hair: Short

This animal is posted as a rehome, which is a service outside of Cat's Cradle to help owners find new homes for their animals. If interested, contact Jen Stafford at (804) 461-8881.

Tinker is an 11-year-old, spayed female, brown Tabby with white and orange, Domestic Short Hair cat.

Tinker has always been very small and currently weighs about 9 lbs. She
is very shy & takes a while to warm up to new people, but when she
does she loves to sit on your chest or rub on your feet!

I rescued Tinker as a kitten, and she\'s been a great companion. However, I
married into the military and we move every 3-4 years. Tinker and her
brother, Tonka (listed separately), did not handle the last move well.
I\'d like to find a stable, permanent home for both cats (together
or separate) to avoid continual trauma every time we move.

Tinker is litter box trained, does not jump on counters or tables, and is very
well mannered. She has lived with one other cat, a boxer, and a baby;
however, she would do best in a low-key environment due to her
extremely shy nature.

Please call (804) 461-8881 to adopt!

About Cat's Cradle of the Shenandoah Valley

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1998, Cat’s Cradle seeks to end euthanasia of healthy adoptable cats and dogs in Shenandoah Valley through aggressive spay/neuter of owned animals and TNR (trap/neuter/release) of feral cats.

We also have a network of foster parents and an active adoption program for cats. In 2009 we opened an adoption center in Harrisonburg. We do not euthanize for space.

Please visit our website at: for more information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our cats at PetSmart in Springfield, VA on most 1st and 3rd Saturdays, at the PetSmart in Harrisonburg, VA on some Saturdays and some Sunday afternoons, and at the Petsmart in Waynesboro on Saturdays. We also show cats at our adoption center at 124 S Main St. in Harrisonburg 11-6 M-F, and 11-5 Sat and 11-4 Sunday.

Please visit our website: for other adoption events and hours for showings or call the adoption center at 540-433-1135.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website: for a copy of our adoption application and adoption contract. Adoption fees vary, but generally run around $135.

All our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, and fully vetted. We have an adoption center in Harrisonburg, but we also make extensive use of foster homes until adoption.

We generally prefer indoor only homes, and our contract specifies that the cat(s) will not be de-clawed.

We have some cats that cannot be adopted into an indoor situation. For these, we seek safe barn or out-building locations.
