Facts about Markham

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9590669
  • Hair: Short
Orange Tabby
DOB 1/19/2013
Hello world! We are delighted to introduce our new friend Markham. Markham is a stately 3-year-old tabby. He has a beautiful yellow-orange shade of fur that will remind you of a smooth butterscotch candy.
Markham has had a bit of a bumpy ride to get where he is today. He was originally abandoned behind a grocery store and eventually made his way into a feral cat colony. When he was rescued from the colony, Markham was in quite rough health, but he has made great progress and is thriving now.
Markham is only 7.5 pounds, which makes him feel light as a feather when he curls up in your lap. He is a classic “lap cat” and loves to feel warm and secure. Markham can become a bit nervous in new environments, so he would probably flourish best in a home with no small children. He craves love and will even jump up and greet you when you enter a room.
So let’s give Markham’s journey a happy ending. Come be part of his forever home today!
SNAP Recommends
Markham will be great in any type of home including with older children and small dogs. He has no special needs and will make a very special addition to the family.
Like all SNAP pets, Markham is neutered, up to date on shots and vaccinations, and micro-chipped. And ready to meet you at one of our adoption centers or by special appointment.

About SNAP 2 IT

About Our Rescue Group...

SNAP is dedicated to curbing the dog and cat overpopulation problem in Georgia through making spay/neutering services as widely available as possible.

Through the implementation of the county and local TNR programs and by helping to provide wellness services, rescue and adoption programs and education and outreach, we hope to reach our goal of saving lives and money.

We are a Georgia-based 501c3 non-profit organization sustained entirely from grants, donations and the generous and tireless work and support of our many volunteers.
