Facts about Purty

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 74207
  • Hair: Unknown
Purty is a lively, playful kitty who's pretty laid-back as well. She loves being scratched and petted, and likes to be held sometimes, too, but she will let you know when she's ready to do her own thing again. She's got quite the motor and loves to share her purrs! She is quick and agile when playing and definitely loves her toys. Purty will do best with older children -- probably teenagers -- and a family who is fairly gentle and low-key. She mostly ignored the dogs and other cats in her foster home, but she's fine with any that do the same to her. She'll be a wonderful companion for someone with a quieter lifestyle who is fine with her occasional need to be independent.

This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Carol at cgriglione@arl-iowa.org or Betsy at bsalmon@arl-iowa.org.
