Facts about Peanut

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: S16Y300
  • Hair: Short
Peanut is a pretty 2-year-old with a short tortoiseshell coat and a playful personality. She's polydactyl, meaning she has extra toes, like all those Hemingway cats down in Key West. Peanut was brought to the shelter as a stray by a resident who found her in a neighbor's back yard, and she's waiting to meet you in our Cat Room. Our volunteer Cat Coaches say Peanut enjoys being petted and gives vigorous head-bumps to let you know she wants more. Peanut responded when her handler called to her, and she had a good time playing with the Neko Fly fishing pole toy; our Cat Coaches say she's an active cat who would be a good fit for someone who will play with her on a regular basis. Meet her in our Cat Room! ~ MEET YOUR MATCH: GREEN / PARTY ANIMAL ~ To learn how our shelter uses Meet Your Match pet-testing results, visit the Feline-alities section of aspca.org/adopt/meet-your-match ~ All of our cats and kittens go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations.
