Facts about Purrnino

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Purrnino, the purrfect name for a purrfect kitty! This little man came to Tree House Humane Society in April of 2016 after being pulled from a traditional shelter. This boy loves to play the room. He’ll sit in the middle of a crowded area but will play hard to get if you try to pet him! He would be best in a home with a confident adopter who can provide a quiet and calm environment with plenty of vertical space. He would also do best without young children or high prey driven dogs or energetic dogs who love to chase. Purrnino may be shy during first introductions but after extra TLC and patience in the new home, you'll have a forever best friend. Purrnino will also need an adopter who is comfortable giving injections twice a day to help control his diabetes insipidus. Purrnino loves laps and cuddles once he feels secure and comfortable in his surroundings! Adopt this adorable, big eyed, lover boy today!

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, our goal is to find a good fit between cat and guardian. Our trained adoption counselors talk with prospective adopters to best understand their wants and needs. Visitors then tour our cageless facility to meet our rescued cats who are waiting for a forever home. We encourage individuals to take as much time as they need to find their new best friend and make sure it will be a good fit (and can visit multiple times). Ultimately, we want every match to be a happy and healthy one and individuals to take their time versus being rushed to make a decision. Adoption applications stay on file for three months.

Adoption fees of $85 help cover the cost of a cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS

* A photo I.D.
* A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill).
* If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats.
* All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
