Facts about Doby

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: C009681
  • Hair: Short
Doby was trapped in a feral colony along with his brother and best friend Dunkel. When he joined our little foster family he was pretty scared and is still on the nervous side. He had never been inside a house or witnessed dogs before or been handled by humans. It didn't take him long to realize how wonderful life was inside! The outside world for a little kitten is very dangerous and scary. They often go with hungry tummies and have to hide to stay safe. Playing is hard to do when you have to hide but now he has lots of toys and friends. Doby became brave after about a week and discovered how much he loved to be snuggled. He is a little purring machine. He still needs some time and patience to truly feel safe when he joins his forever home. He is nervous when first picked up but will quickly relax. He keeps close to his brother and loves to cuddle up with him for a nap in his favorite basket after a kitty play session. He's already a brave a little boy who loves to be petted and purrs so loud you can hear him from several feet away! The boys haven't met a lot of people yet. Like all young kittens, he is very active and loves to play. He would love to stay with Dunkel or find a home with other playful pets. Please email me if you would like more information about this sweet boy or his brother. They both deserve a happy forever after in a loving forever home-ideally together or with another fur baby!

About St. Francis Society Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501-c-3 animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of sick, injured, and stray domestic animals as well as spay/neuter and medical services for those animals. We seek to place animals in a loving foster or permanent home after recovery and we DO NOT euthanize unless terminal illness necessitates such a decision. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia/FIV (cats), wormed and vaccinated before they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our cats ready for adoption can be seen at the following Adoption Center locations:

PetSmart, located at 12835 Citrus Park Dr across from the Citrus Park Mall. Our volunteers are onsite for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm and will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect feline companion. PetSmart management can assist with an adoption during other days/hours, time permitting. Cats are onsite 7 days a week.

PetSmart, located at 11331 Causeway Blvd in Brandon. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite for adoptions Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm only.

Petco, located at 13127 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm only.

We have many more cats than the ones housed at our Adoption Center locations. Our cats live with foster families until they are ready for adoption and space is available at an Adoption Center. If a cat is located in a foster home and the foster has provided contact information, you can get more details on a particular cat directly from them.

Our Adoption Process...
