Facts about Howdy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Howdy is located in KS, but he needs a home in Missouri, Illinois, or some state other than Kansas, because the Kansas Department of Agriculture does not allow adoption of cats who test positive for FIV! That DOA is behind the times, and Howdy should not have to suffer for it!

Howdy is petite guy with a huge tomcat head-- it makes him very moon faced and cute. One of the nicest cats ever, he would sit with you getting love for hours if he could. He ADORES people.

Howdy showed up at his foster home very beat up, with terrible ear mites and a presumed broken leg or other old injury. He'd scratched himself silly between the ear mites and the fleas. He is doing much better now; he uses his leg just fine and most of his superficial itching wounds have healed, but he still seems too itchy and his ears haven't completely cleared up. He's a little bit of a work in progress still. He does just fine with dogs and has not been around other cats since he showed up to his foster's house.

In a forever home it would be best if Howdy had access to one room at first and then give him greater and greater access to the house, or lots of litter boxes. He figured out the litter box when trapped in the bathroom with it but there might be some back slide if he is given a larger area to work with. He also might play a little too rough for young children or elderly people.

Howdy would be so happy to find a person to hang around with for the rest of his life, and if you are that person, you will have one very grateful little cat!

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
