Facts about Lynx

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Spotted Tabby/Leopard Spotted
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11279382-25P
  • Hair: Short

I lived in a loving home where I could go in and out as I wished. As a young and uneducated girl cat, I was outside one night and had unprotected sex with a handsome guy named Tom Cat.

Several weeks later, Ernie, Chip and Robbie made their entrance. This was a steep learning curve, but I proved to be a caring and good mother. We got to stay inside until the family didn’t want any of us anymore. To their credit, they made a point of playing with my boys as they grew, and helped them to think people are great.

Surrendered to the shelter, we were a little scared that the babies would catch a kitty cold. The shelter folks were too, and asked PZF if we could move to their place, and we did.

They named me “Lynx” because I have sort of wildish markings, but mostly because little tufts, like a Lynx, adorn my ear tips. I am calm, composed, confident, and play happily with any person with a toy. I am gentle with other cats, and peaceful in general.

Now I need a home where I can be valued for my sweetness and live out my life with people, and maybe a feline pal or two as well. Come meet me – I am hardly older than a kitten, and so serene.

About Peter Zippi Fund For Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Memorial Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The fund sponsors spay/neuter vouchers to qualified persons, and shelter for and adoptions of lost and homeless animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

6 to 12 months of age: $85.00

Cats older than 1 year: $60.00

Over 5 years old to qualified person over 60 years old is free.

These are the minimum fees required. Please note they include the first (and sometimes more) vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, treatment for fleas, worms, and fairly often, costly treatment for other maladies, which result from abandonment

Of course, if you would like to make a larger donation to help cover our care for the homeless animals, we would be delighted. All donations over the minimum fees are tax deductible, and will receive written acknowledgment.

We have an adoption questionaire to fill out prior to being approved, and a personal interview with an adoption counselor is required; at our discretion, a home visit may be required. Adopters agree to keep cat(s) indoors only and to not declaw.
