Facts about Ulysses

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Ulysses is looking for a home in St. Louis, Missouri.

Ulysses is shy at first, but warms up to be very sweet and friendly. He will hiss at you at first-- it's as if he can't quite believe he is safe. But if you just go right ahead and pet him, he'll raise his chin for you to stroke under it. And soon you'll hear him start to purr, a rusty, rumbling purr. He is a gentle soul who gets along very well with other cats. He frequently head bonks his kitty friends.

Estimated to be 10-12 years old, Ulysses came from the streets, and we'll never know how long he was alone out there. One day he came to the home of a kind woman who takes care of some feral cats.

Ulysses tests positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but he can still live a long and happy life. He can even live with FIV negative cats, since it's only spread via deep bite wounds and Ulysses is not a fighter. He is an adorable cat who would love to have a forever home with some gentle people who will coax him out of his shell and help him feel safe.

Recently diagnosed with Triaditis (IBD, liver inflammation, and pancreatitis), Ulysses requires a special diet, B12 injections, and prednisilone. He's doing very well on this regimen and hoping to find a kind soul who will love him forever despite his special needs.

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
