Facts about Tyler

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Tyler
  • Hair: Short
Tyler (orange tabby, male) was found by a rescuer near a senior community in West Virginia. He was taken in and quickly adapted to living inside. He loves to be held and snuggle and likes to sleep very close to his human. He is often seen playing by himself even though there are several other kittens around. He enjoys larger soft toys that he can chew on and kick. He will play with the ball track, feather wands, and hide in the kitty tent too.

Tyler enjoys being around other kittens and seems to be good friends with Ginger, who came from the same rescuer. Tyler’s favorite activity is snacking though, hence the chubby little belly! His estimated birthday is 6/24/2016.

Tyler can be adopted with his friend Ginger, or separately, as long as there is another active furry friend in the home. He has been very sweet and open to meeting other cats in the foster home without stress.

Tyler is up to date on his vaccines, tested negative for FIV and FeLV and has been neutered and micro chipped.

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.
