About Penn
Penn -Male Orange tabby. DOB 1/15/16

The first Penn tennis ball was manufactured in 1910. That must have been our Penn's great grandfather! Our Penn is the current executive director of testing for softness of fabric that can be used in production of the tennis balls. He LOVES to find a soft spot and cuddle up and do his part in the family business....or take a nap! His beautiful orange color contrasts with the yellow of his family's fabric of choice. Penn is doing his best to train his foster Mom to understand the importance of his continuous testing of all her lap coverings. He is a very laid back boss and purrs as he waits until there is a lap to test for the cuddliness. Penn is now accepting applications for a permanent person or persons to help him in his family business. All that is required is lots of soft laps, couches and beds and a willingness to share with him. He will need to give and receive lots of love as a benefit of employment. This is a full time, lifetime position he is looking to fill with a family that will be there for him for the duration of his career and be happy to help him into retirement! Penn is current on age appropriate shots and tested negative for FIV/FeLV. Please contact current lap provider/foster mom Crystal Beck at crystal.aarf@gmail.comor 336-253-8001.

You can meet and visit with many of our cats at the AARF House (311 Harvey St, Winston Salem) during our adoption fair hours. Go to for information about our adoption fair hours and adoption process.
