Facts about Eric

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Eric is a “ruggedly handsome” cat with a very charming personality! This 10-year-old fellow is neutered, has claws, and weighs just over 11 pounds. In his former home, Eric was an indoor/outdoor cat, who enjoyed spending his outdoor time with the feral cat colony living in his backyard (which his former dad supported and managed under the HSPPR Trap/Neuter/Release program). Since relocating to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center in Manitou Springs, Eric is still sizing up the resident cats and is not quite ready to be pals with them, but he is enjoying lots of people attention. He likes to talk to you to find out how your day has been going and then he proceeds to tell you about his day. And he is not at all bashful about asking for multiple servings of kitty treats for a snack! Eric is looking forward to meeting you and finding his new forever home, so please do visit him soon!

Come Meet Our Pets...

You'll find us out and about at adoption fairs and community events all over Colorado Springs! We have a physical building in Manitou Springs where we are able to bring pets for meetings, and some reside while awaiting their new families. We also create a monthly poster featuring our available pets which are displayed at locations throughout the community - please let us know if you can put our available pets flyer at your workplace. We update our community posters and pet listings monthly. For the most up-to-date info, please visit our website at www.safeplacepets.org

Our Adoption Process...

Please check out our available pets and contact us to let us know which one(s) interest you. We'll arrange a site visit to your home and a meet-and-greet with your prospective pet once we have had a phone chat to determine if our rescue pet is a good fit for you and you for him/her. If you and the pet decide it's true love, we'll have you fill out an adoption contract and ask for an adoption donation (rather than a fee). A certificate of adoption is mailed to you once the process is complete.
