Facts about Mingus

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
He's quiet and unassuming but so affectionate and gentle!

Estimated to be two years old, Mingus was scared when he landed in a rural animal control. Somehow he came across as feral and went to a temporary foster home to stay until a barn home opened up. But he soon showed his true sweetie pie nature, so everyone nixed the barn home idea.

Mingus also tests positive for FIV, so he needs an indoor home. FIV is easily managed with indoor living, good food, and a good vet. Many cats who are FIV+ live to a ripe old age! Please ask us for information!

Mingus is gentle, perfectly behaved, and very loving. He is perfect with other cats and would be very happy to get to know you!

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 friskywhiskers@hotmail.com, 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.
