Facts about HotRod

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short

Furrever home needed for the sweetest pair of orange brothers (turning 1yo in June). Still very kittenish but also well-behaved (no curtain-climbing, litterbox-training, etc. to do -- just lots of love and a decent amount of responsibility needed).

Meet THUNDER and HOTROD who lost their home last week. They are extremely friendly and long to be members of a family. They are both well socialized but definitely different personalities:

THUNDER is the bolder one -- enjoys being around people, pettings, brushings -- but he is assertive and does not want to be picked up or held -- he's a big boy and can walk on his own, thank you! ;) Now that he learned about the string toy, he is absolutely infatuated with it!

HOTROD appears more timid (he will hide when I am entering the room) but he will also happily explore the house; he comes to anyone with an available hand to pet and he can be picked up and carried. He also loves to play and enjoys catnip toys!

They look very similar but you can totally tell them apart: THUNDER is a little darker, has a shorter tail, coarser hair, and a square jaw. Though they've lived together their whole life, they seem well-adjusted and confident enough that they could be adopted individually if there is no other choice.

(We did not want to rename them, their new family can do that - they don't seem to be listening to their names, rather come to fingers snapping or just because they want to check what's going on and be petted or brushed.)

They are neutered, FeLv/FlV Negative, and they're due for booster shots in November. Application, vet reference, and a small re-homing fee (which I will then donate to help others) required. ** FOR PIX OF THUNDER, PLEASE CHECK OUT HIS POSTING ON THIS SITE!!!**

These handsome boys are NOT at the Sanctuary! Please contact Foster Mom KRISZTA at 724-494-8037 or to meet one or both of these sweethearts today!

About Kopy Kat Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Kopy Kat is comprised of a group of women who love cats and are saddened by the plight of strays, ferals, and the unpunished abuse of housepets. We use our own money to care for our kitties. Many of our cats were deemed unadoptable by other shelters because they are too shy, but we have many friendly ones, too. We are beyond our planned capacity and cannot take in additional pets because, although it deeply distresses us, overcrowding will jeopardize the health of all of them and serve no good purpose. We can direct you to area organizations if you need trapping or spay/neuter assistance. VISIT US ON FACEBOOK!!!!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption donations are $75 for cats and kittens unless otherwise stated - depending on age and physical condition of the cat (some of our kitties are "Special Needs" cats which may need particular care or go to a specific home environment.) A standard adoption application and agreement must be completed. Most importantly is to have a vet reference so we know the kitty will get essential annual and emergency care. A plastic cat carrier must be brought along when you pick up your new friend. For your and its safety, we do not allow them to be carried out in arms. **This applies to our cats only - Courtesy Listing cats are handled strictly per Listing person's stipulations; all future dealings are with the Listing person!**
