Lynx's Story...

DOB: 3/02


Lynx’s mom, (probably Nicole) was a young, campus cat from the west side of the Iowa River. His extended family has grown up outside near the UI College of Nursing.


When Lynx was captured in a humane trap, he was already a young adult, and it was clear that he had never been touched by a human. (It was also clear that he wasn't looking forward to the experience.)


After his initial health checkup and vet care, he went to his foster home and has been learning about stairs, cat beds, hands, and all the other things that housecats take for granted.


Because his introduction to humans came after kittenhood, Lynx’s education will take awhile, but he is making good progress. Lynx needs a home where there is at least one other cat, so that he doesn’t have to deal being the sole focus of attention.


Check out his cousins, Aidan, Niall, Peeper, his aunt, Sadie, and his grandma, Baby on our website.


Lynx likes: observing from a distance; mealtime; watching wildlife.


He dislikes: loud anything or anyone; sassy cats.


Lynx is shy and still a bit skittish. He plays well with others and is amenable to change. He's come a long way, but gets very nervous when he's picked up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lynx, a Iowa City Oriental cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Oriental for sale in Iowa City, or seeking a Oriental cat from a breeder in Iowa City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Iowa City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Iowa City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Oriental breeders who help with Oriental rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Iowa City paves the way for another one to be saved.
