Facts about Bugsy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: CPG21
  • Hair: Short
Bugsy and Ginny, our Outlaw Kittens, arrived as scared but handleable kittens from a feral colony. We at first thought they might prefer an outdoor only home, but they have shown us recently that they actually really like humans - lots of purring whenever their favorite volunteers pick them up and cuddle them - so now we are hoping to find indoor/outdoor or even indoor only homes for them. They were born about 5/30/16, and are really unusual looking cats, with an oriental shaped body type and reverse tabby coloring. We think they will do well in homes with calm, quiet energy - groups of toddlers on play dates would be their worst nightmare, but they will love having people who enjoy reading by the fire, watching some TV, gardening, sharing kitty treats, and relaxing together after a hard day.

Bugsy is the more shy of the pair, but still loves his volunteer cuddles. He has some mousing skills and gets along well with the other cats he has met.

We'd love to see all kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair (which gives you a great pair discount rate), but we do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome . Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies." Bugsy would be a great pair with his sister Ginny, or with any of his friends in Kitten Room 2.

All kittens arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations; most will need one or two booster vaccinations after arrival, and rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age. Adoption fee for Bugsy is suggested minimum $50 (more gratefully accepted). Discount for pair adoptions! All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we schedule appointments to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
