Facts about Yin -Energetic/Loving Big Boy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
“Yin” is a neutered brown tabby who is about two years old. Yin was brought to the shelter as a stray and we can't understand why no one came looking for him. He's a big boy weighing in at about 13 lbs and has a gorgeous classic tabby coat with the sweetest white muzzle, pink nose, and mismatched white socks. Yin’s a real lovebug and will always greet you at the door and rub against your legs to let you know he’s happy you're home. He also loves to play, especially when it comes to chasing toy mice and practicing his pounce (he is quite the athlete!). He’s also a great couch partner, and while he won’t readily sit in your lap, he’s always happy to curl up next to you, nuzzle up against your leg, or sit by the window (he’s always curious of the world outside and would prefer a home with some good views). Yin is confident and independent and is totally fine on his own when you’re out. He's also good with some other cats, assuming he gets a proper introduction but no dogs, please. Yin is faithful to his litter box, not vocal (unless he’s letting you know it’s breakfast or dinner time), and is very respectful of carpets and furniture. His foster dad promises that Yin will make your home warmer and be a great friend and companion. All medical work and micochipped too! Meet him in his Arlington, VA foster home. Updated 11/4/16

About Home Alone Feline Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, private feline-only rescue group dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of homeless cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter and rely on a group of dedicated foster homes to care for our felines until a "fur-ever" home can be found. We actively promote the importance of spaying and neutering and best practices in companion animal care. The majority of our cats/kittens come from high-kill shelters. We do not receive any government funding and rely on private contributions, 100% of which go to provide medical care, food and supplies.

You can support our rescue by shopping your favorite online stores through It's FREE and easy to use. Simply click on the link below which will connect you directly to our shelter's shopping page. Then shop like you always do at your favorite stores, including Amazon, Ebay, Petsmart & Home Depot. Whatever you buy, a portion of EVERY purchase will come to us in a cash donation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in private foster homes; therefore, we require an application be completed before setting up appointments to meet them; an application can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed upon request. Adopters must be within a reasonable driving distance to No. VA ( 60 minutes); we do not ship/transport our animals. We participate in public adoption event held in various locations in the Wash.DC/No. VA areal most Sundays in conjunction with other rescuers. Please e-mail us for specifics.

Our Adoption Process...

We strive to make the "purr-fect" match through our interview and application process. Adoption fees, which range from $100-$135, include all medical work (FELV/FIV testing, shots; spay/neuter, etc); home visits are required prior to final placement. The majority of our kittens are only available for adoption in pairs or as a companion to another young cat/kitten already in the home. Sorry, but we do not adopt very young kittens to families with children under 6 yrs old due to safety concerns for both child and kitten. Adopters also receive a certificate for a free comprehensive wellness exam at any Caring Hands Animal Hospital.
