Facts about Jake

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Jake is looking for a home in St. Louis, Missouri.

Jake loves to have kitty conversations while he chases catnip mice around the room. He's a talker! He's also very sweet once he trusts you. He will purr up a storm and sit on your lap.

Jake wound up at a rural pound and was scheduled to die. The experience was frightening for him. He was in even more peril because he tests positive for FIV.

Cats who test positive for FIV can lead a long and healthy life. They need access to good vet care and to be kept indoors. FIV is NOT transmitted to humans or dogs (or any species other than cats) and is only transmitted by a very deep bite. Many people have FIV+ cats living with cats who test negative. That is okay as long as you know the cats well enough to know they will not fight ferociously. And of course, you must conduct a proper introduction.

Estimated to be around two years old, Jake is very well mannered and would love his very own home.

Will you be the one to grant Jake's wish? He'd really love his very own lap.

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
