  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Medium
Hello! I’m Squonk. Why am I named Squonk? They say I’m named after the sound I make when I get super excited. I’m told that my purr is very loud and squonky, hence the name.

My favorite things to do are talk and purr and nap. Then, I wake up and chat some more. They tell me I even mumble, whatever that is. I also adore catnip, scratching away on my designated scratching posts, playing with Da Bird, and watching real birds from the window.

I don’t mind dogs but they have to know that I’m in charge. I enjoy the company of one or two very submissive cats but I like to annoy the others, offering bops on the head to show them who’s boss.

I’m super eager to go outside and I will dash right past you if you’re not on your game. I do know what “NO” and “Stay” mean but if you’re not looking at me, look out! I’m so very fast and sneaky. My foster mom says this means it’s best if I’m tucked away in another room before outside doors are opened. It’s fine with me. They put my favorite food and bed by a window in the office so I don’t mind hanging out in there one bit.

I do enjoy getting my monthly dose of Frontline because I know it means I get to go outside on a leash and harness regularly. I get so excited when the harness bells jingle. I actually like to find them and jingle them pretty much any time I think about it. Once outside on a leash, I get so excited that I just plop right down and wiggle on the ground then I move to another spot and do it all over again. My purr gets louder outdoors, if you can believe it. Even ten minutes a day makes me incredibly happy but I would not mind more — not at all. I have all the time in the world if you do.

My foster parents say I’m very intelligent. I’ve been working hard at learning to open doors. So you’ll have to outsmart me. Do you think you’re up to the challenge? If so, let’s play!

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.

Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are required to complete a comprehensive application and interview, and will need to supply proper identification, as well as personal and veterinary references. Our adoption fee is $125 for kittens 6 months or younger, and $100 for any cat over six months of age. Our fee includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccines to-date of adoption, and a microchip. Once approved, all adopters are required to sign an adoption contract.
