Facts about Ernie

  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short


Hi, My name is Ernie!

Do you have trust issues? Me too! I am a really sweet little cat, but it takes time for me to adjust to new people and surroundings. I am looking for that special someone who will take me into their heart and home and love me unconditionally. Once you earn my trust, I am such a sweet little girl. I am very affectionate and have a way of making my owner feel very special.

I am 10 years young and very healthy. I have been spayed and am up to date on my shots. I am perfectly litter trained and well behaved. I live with my family in Kenmore, WA, north of Seattle.

Ernie, along with her sister cat Emjay, is being rehomed by her owners, who are heartbroken to have to make this very difficult decision. Unfortunately their two small children have been diagnosed with severe cat allergies.

The family is hoping to find a very loving home for Emjay and Irwin – ideally together, but they can also be adopted separately.

The ideal home will be a family with older children, adults or a single with lots of time to spend with these very loving, people-oriented cats.

All supplies will be included – food, dishes, litter boxes and treats. All you have to add is lots of love and a safe, happy environment for these precious pussycats.

If you would like to meet Ernie and Emjay, please fill out our online information form and the owners will call you to arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.


Rehoming fee waived for the right adopters. All supplies will be included.

About Seattle Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
