Hi there, my name’s Jingle, I’m a very cuddly, talkative, and loving boy. I like snuggling up with you, purring in contentment while I look up at you with my Puss in Boots eyes. I like to sit in your lap or lay on your chest and make biscuits with my paws. I’ll even curl up next to you in your arms while you sleep, like I’m a teddy bear. I give great head butts, I’ll rub up against everyone hoping for more petting. I’m always right there at the door greeting you when you come home with head butts and happy meows. I really like catnip toys and my kitty tunnel too, I roll around on the floor with my toys and then I’ll walk around in my crinkle tunnel exploring and playing.

I have medium length fur, I keep fluffing out more each day now that I’m on a better diet and in a happy foster home. I was found in central Virginia when I was brought to the shelter. I was wearing a collar and had clearly been someone’s pet before. I’m such a sweet boy, I don’t know why no one ever came to claim me. My time was just about up when I was rescued and came to 4Paws. I get along well with other dogs, I live with several of them in my foster home and we all get along great. I’m laid back and non-dominant, I’m happy to be best friends with everyone I meet!

I was born in August 2013. I am on a prescription diet to prevent a reoccurrence of urinary crystals. I’ve been neutered, micro-chipped, am up to date on all my shots, and tested negative for feline leukemia, but positive for FIV which you can read more about here

About Our Rescue Group...

The 4Paws Rescue Team is a nonprofit community-based all volunteer organization that takes in neglected, abandoned, abused and unwanted cats and kittens. Cats rescued by 4Paws receive vaccines and appropriate veterinary care before being adopted into permanent, loving homes. An animal rescued by 4Paws will never be euthanized except out of medical necessity.

Additionally, 4Paws is dedicated to supporting the management of populations and improving the health of feral cat colonies. 4Paws volunteers also hold seminars in local schools to teach children the importance of responsible pet care.

4Paws is a qualified public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are fully tax deductible as allowed by law. A copy of our FY2005 annual report may be viewed by clicking here.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fairs are held once or twice a month at various PETCO stores in Northern Virginia. The adoption fairs are usually held on Saturday’s from 1:00 to 5:00. Between 30 and 60 cats and kittens are shown for adoption at each fair—with the larger fairs generally occurring April through October.

While they are waiting to find permanent loving homes, our cats temporarily live in foster homes. The foster families bring the cats and kittens to the adoption fairs to be seen by potential adopters. Applicants have the opportunity to handle the cats and in some cases, meet the foster parents who can provide additional insight into a cat’s habits and personality.

Our Adoption Process...

At the adoption fairs, if you meet a kitten or cat that you want to adopt, you will be asked to complete an application and contract and leave a check for the adoption fee ($120 for an adult or $145 for un-neutered kitten of which $50 is a deposit that is refunded after you provide 4Paws proof of sterilization). We ask that you pay the adoption fee up front at the fairs in order to “put a hold” on the cat until your application is processed. If your application is not approved, your check is returned to you.

Neither cats nor kittens are sent to their new homes on the day of the fair. It usually takes 4-5 days to process the application before the cat can go to his or her adoptive home. Pre-approval is an option, though. To accelerate the adoption process, you can fax a completed application and contract to us at 703-560-9795 a few days before the fair. Adoption Applications are available on this website.
