Facts about Tang (foster care)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: A25179301
  • Hair: Short
Tang (A25179301) is a one and a half year old, orange and white, domestic shorthair cat. He is fixed, has all his shots, is micro chipped, litter trained, gets along with cats, has tested negative for FeLV/FIV.

Tang demonstrated significant socialization and behavioral issues due to prior poor living conditions and has been residing in a foster home for the last four months where he has progressed nicely.

Tang is a wonderfully loving and affectionate cat. He gets along well and is playful with his foster-feline brothers as well as his foster humans. But due to his history, he still struggles with issues and is a special needs cat.

Although he isn’t a big fan of lap sitting or being picked up, he will sit down at your feet and wait for you to scratch him on the back of his head and will then begin to purr loudly. Tang also likes to sleep on the bed with his foster mother, usually at the bottom of the bed.

Tang responds very well behaviorally to a reward system. This handsome fellow would be a great addition to the right home.

The perfect adopter would be able to work with him regularly, have a scratching post that is sturdy enough for this big fellow, and give him lots of attention. The home should not have any children under the age of 16 and no dogs.

Tang is a very sweet and gorgeous cat who would love to become a part of your family and if you want to adopt him as well as provide this handsome fellow with the care that he needs in addition to a lot of love, you can contact his foster mom at:
