Facts about Teddy

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 111516-F P.A.
  • Hair: Short
Teddy is a handsome ginger Tabby about 2 yrs. old. He is sweet, friendly and gentle.He's a bit shy at first but he warms almost instantly. He really likes to have his chin scratched and be petted for a bit. Teddy will rub against your legs and will also be happy to roll over for a chest rub, but no tummies, please!

You can pick Teddy up but he doesn’t like to be held for more than a kiss and a hug. He does like to be where you are and will sometimes want to sit on your lap or next to you for a snooze while you watch TV or read a book.

Teddy loves his catnip toys and likes to play chase with his sparkle mice and sparkle balls. He would love to have you toss them across the room but also plays by himself when the mood strikes.

Teddy is a bit skittish so he will run at unexpected noise. But he is a sweet and affectionate kitty who would make a great companion. Though he would be fine as an only kitty Teddy would probably love to be in a home with other friendly kitties and maybe even a nice dog.

About Jake's Place Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The volunteers at Jake's Place are diverse group of dedicated animal lovers. Some of us have worked in rescue before, some are new to it. Some of us have known each other for years, others more recently involved. Having all come together in the last few years and finding that we had the same passion to help cats, we started thinking about the possibilities of putting our various expertise to work in creating something wonderful. While Jake's Place is a relatively new organization, our work goes back 14 years and our energy and drive is stronger than ever. We are committed to rescuing responsibly, fostering in loving & caring homes and finding the best possible forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

All of us at Jake's Place are committed to helping you find the right cat or kitten for your family situation. You can download our application and contract here on the website. We have our cats and kittens listed with a little biography of each, as well as many photos and a video of each. Feel free to call and ask questions about any of our cats. We would also love to meet you at any of our adoption events or possibly we can arrange a visit with the foster family. Our adoption fee is: $110 for a cat or kitten; $150 for a pair; $80 for a senior (8+yrs). This fee helps us to pay for testing (FIV/Leukemia), vaccines, parasite treatment, spay/neuter & microchipping, as well as anything else the cats might need while in our care. Seniors may need blood work or a dental care. Download Application: & Download Agreement:
