Facts about Binky

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Binky is 3 years old and such a sweetheart. Found hurt and alone in the snow, he was brought to us and is now fully vetted. He loves to be held, pet and snuggle - absolute lap cat (see our many photos :)

He will roll on his back with delight when you scratch his little head. He just needs love!

He is FIV+ and that is the only reason we believe he has not been adopted already, which is silly. FIV+ cats live long healthy lives indoors. FIV is only spread from cat to cat via deep bite wounds - something very uncommon with neutered, indoor cats.

FIV+ cats can live with FIV- cats as long as they do not fight. Of course, as with any cats - slow, careful introductions with the initial period in separate spaces is needed; FIV+ cats can also live with dogs. In Binky's case, a friendly, CALM (maybe older?) dog that does not have any prey drive or the tendency to give chase would probably be a fine companion for him after slow introductions, but loud, boisterous dogs do tend to scare him. As with many cats, he'd love to be your spoiled one and only pet…but there are certainly many options of the type of home he could fit into.

About Animal Nation, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Nation is an organization dedicated to ending animal cruelty, and promoting respect and kindness for all living beings. We currently have cats, kittens and small birds for adoption and often have dogs, exotics and small furries, too. We proudly support TNR. We DO NOT have a shelter - we rely on foster homes, our adoption center at PetSmart-Norwalk and occasionally vet boarding for our adoptable pets, and as such, it is always necessary to make an appointment to visit with our adoptables. We only show animals to pre-approved adopters. Visit our Website: for more info

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable cats are located in Norwalk, CT. All visits are by appointment. We also have adoption events once a month at our local Petsmart.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is simple. Visit and click "Adopt" or Email us for the application. Fill it out and email it back to us. You'll be contacted within 4 days or so to let you know if you've been approved. Once approved, we will set up a time for you to meet the adoptable pet. Our adoption fee is $150 for cats/kittens and $250 for dogs/puppies. Our fees include spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines, deworming, FIV/FLV testing for kittens/cats and heartworm-lyme testing for dogs. ALL of our pets, including young kittens, are spayed or neutered prior to adoption unless there is a medical reason that they cannot have the surgery. Our pet-bird adoption fees are specific to the individual birds. We do not charge an adoption fee for our spayed and neutered barn-cats, but you must still fill out an application and be approved to adopt them into your barn-setting. Please be patient - we work as fast as we are able, but we are all volunteers and work full-time jobs in addition to rescue. Surely you are willing to wait a few days if you are looking to add a pet to your family for the next 15 years.
