Facts about Pearl

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10511955-67N
  • Hair: Short

Pearl was taken to the city shelter with her brother and another cat. They had lived with a man who suddenly became very ill, and a friend brought them. Even though she was barely older than a kitten, she was very withdrawn at first, and it took her a while to accept affection once again. We believe it reflected her devotion to her person from whom she was separated. After we took her from the shelter, it was less than a week at PZF when she was making biscuits and pushing her head into loving hands. Her coat is an unusual smoke black tabby, and she is really stunning to look at. But beauty is not her only strength.

Just like in nature, this black Pearl is indeed a rarity. She's the perfect combination of beauty, gentility, and affection. In fact, pearls are known for their calming effect and this sweet girl certainly lives up to that claim. Although a bit reserved at first, Pearl is very affectionate and loves to be petted, whisker scratches included. She is a great lap cat, and will also roll over for belly rubs and to show you the white pearl she wears at her throat. She's a gentle player with a gentle soul. She would make a lucky someone a loyal companion.



About Peter Zippi Fund For Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Memorial Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The fund sponsors spay/neuter vouchers to qualified persons, and shelter for and adoptions of lost and homeless animals.

These are the minimum fees required. Please note they include the first (and sometimes more) vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, treatment for fleas, worms, and fairly often, costly treatment for other maladies, which result from abandonment

Of course, if you would like to make a larger donation to help cover our care for the homeless animals, we would be delighted. All donations over the minimum fees are tax deductible, and will receive written acknowledgment.

We have an adoption questionaire to fill out prior to being approved, and a personal interview with an adoption counselor is required; at our discretion, a home visit may be required. Adopters agree to keep cat(s) indoors only and to not declaw.
