Facts about Zinnia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
If you're looking for an intelligent, loyal, and funny cat companion, Zinnia is your gal! She will purr instantly, snuggle up on the couch, and sleep at your side or on your pillow with one eye open in case you need protection. On cold nights, she loves to burrow, and if she gets bored, she'll easily entertain herself with small stuffed toys laced with catnip.

Have dogs? No problem! Zinnia holds her own and generously shares her space with the large, cat-friendly canines in her foster home.

Zinnia is listed as special needs for two reasons. First, she has a food allergy which was identified early and corrected with a limited ingredient diet (LID). As long as Zinnia stays strictly on the Royal Canin rabbit formula OR the Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck LID, she will not have any food allergy flare-ups.

Second, this sweetheart is highly allergic to fleas/flea bites, which was not known until she recently moved from an urban apartment in NYC to a rural home in TX. Although she is an indoor kitty only, fleas in the new climate are an uphill battle, regardless of treating monthly all indoor animals and indoor/outdoor animals. Zinnia is getting treatment for this allergy, but a new home environment with fewer animals and no outdoor privileges is her best chance of fully overcoming this problem.

Zinnia is one of the sweetest rescues we've had, and she's been in foster for a long time. She is accustomed to other cats, but depending on their personality, she can either be a snarky diva or a best friend to a cat companion. Zinnia LOVES kittens, though. If she were to "raise" one of either gender into adulthood, they'd be a perfect match.

She is spayed, negative for FIV/FeLV, microchipped, and current on vaccines. Despite her allergies, Zinnia continues to purr away and dote on her humans. Please don't let her special needs deter you from giving her a chance of a forever home. Geographic barriers can be overcome for the right person and the right home.

About The American Street Cat, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

NOTE: If you have found or trapped cats, or need to relinquish your own, please contact stationary shelters in your area. We do not handle public intakes.

The American Street Cat, Inc's primary focus is on TNR (trap-neuter-return), but the kittens and friendlies found during the rescue effort cannot be ignored. They are brought indoors, well-cared for in a non-shelter environment, and promoted for adoption upon a clean bill of health.

We are a small, volunteer-based, non-profit organization, with no paid officers or staff. Any donations of time and/or money will be greatly appreciated.

We are committed to minimizing the pet overpopulation problem, thereby minimizing the homelessness of beautiful adoptables such as ours.
