Facts about Puma

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Puma is a very striking black cat with amber undertones and one of the most playful 10 year olds you'll ever meet. He does not act his age at all - you may come home to find him exploring a cabinet and he likes to bat at unsuspecting feet as they go by. He came to Broken Tail Rescue covered in fleas and scabs from itching but he's recovered to reach his full handsome potential. He loves to be brushed and has about 15 favorite toys, though his favorites are the cat dancer and small mice. He's got a loud purr that hardly ever stops! He doesn't scratch furniture and never jumps on the counter! He's taken well to wearing a harness and is learning to enjoy exploring outside.

Puma would do best in a cat-savvy household with a family that can respect his threshold for over-arousal during petting and play time.

Puma is being fostered in Westborough and his adoption fee is $125.

About Broken Tail Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement:

Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit foster-based rescue organization dedicated to the rescue of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in urgent need. We work closely with local animal controls, animal shelters and rescue groups to ensure the placement of these forgotten animals. We will not discriminate on basis of health, age, or breed and will only consider humane euthanasia in cases of aggression or for quality-of-life due to untreatable medical conditions.

Our animals are vet examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered as needed and receive any and all medical treatment necessary prior to being placed into carefully screened permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our pets for adoption are in foster homes. You must fill out an adoption application before being considered for adoption. Once your application is received, the foster parent will contact you to discuss whether the animal would be a good fit for your home and set up a meet between your family and the pet.

We also house several cats in our adoption center at the Framingham,Cambridge, and Everett PetSmart stores. Stop by to play with them anytime the store is open!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application; a meet-and-greet between the prospective adopters, the dog, and the foster family; vet and personal reference checks; and a home visit.

Adopters must be at least 21 years of age.


Our adoption donation is generally between $300 - $400 for most adult dogs and is decided on a case-by-case basis. Adoption donations help defray the cost of transportation, care, and medical treatment.


Our adoption donation for cats and kittens varies by age.

Kitten under 6 months: $200
Cats 6 months – 4 yrs: $125
Cats 5 yrs – 9 yrs: $100
