Trinka is a petite, dilute tortoiseshell who, sadly, has been looking for a new home ever since her owner passed away. Trinka turned 15 years old in February, 2016. She was originally adopted to a widowed lady in early 2003 and lived happily with her, first in their own home and later in an assisted living facility. When her owner had to enter a nursing home, Trinka came back into foster care with TCS, with the hope that her owner's condition would improve enough for them to be reunited again. That never happened, but Trinka visited her owner in the nursing home periodically. During those two hour visits, she remained on the bed with her owner the entire time!
Trinka is an independent kitty who likes attention when she is ready for it, but is not clingy. She enjoys being petted and usually slept at the foot of her owner's bed. Occasionally, she becomes convinced that her tail is out of control and needs to be disciplined. She will growl at it and chase it until she gets it to behave again! Her owner had her trained to go outside wearing a harness and leash, and Trinka loved those adventures at the time.
Unfortunately, Trinka is not entirely happy living with multiple cats in foster care. She has learned to cope with it, but would much prefer to be an only cat. Her ideal home will be with another older person or couple who want a single pet. She is in good health and would love to find the right home for her remaining years.
The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.
The first step in adoption is to...
Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!
All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract. This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!
