Tess's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tess's Story...
Pretty, petite Tess thinks she's a feral cat, although she enjoys all the pleasures of being a domestic kitty, including three squares a day, soft beds, sleeping in sunny windowsills and playing with toys, especially balls! However, she has yet to figure out that people can be her friends. She is afraid of human touch and makes herself scarce whenever strangers come to visit. Tess gets along well with other cats (she adores Owen!) and may always be more of a cat-kitty than a people-kitty.

Tess was born around March, 2007. She tests negative for FIV and FeLV, has been spayed, is current on vaccinations and microchipped.

She is ready to go to a quiet home without young children, ideally one with a cat who wants a buddy (better yet, adopted together with Owen!) and humans who will love her just the way she is.

About Our Rescue Group...

Tuxedo Junction Rescue is a no-kill rescue organization dedicated to providing tender care and permanent placement into loving homes for cats at risk for being put to death in shelters in the Austin, Texas area.
We are a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) charity.
As space permits, Tuxedo Junction Rescue will also provide a safe haven to cats at risk of danger or death through abuse, neglect, or abandonment, with the goal of finding secure permanent arrangements for these cats.

TJR supports the concept of no more homeless pets by spaying and neutering all cats in its care before adoption.

Tuxedo Junction Rescue primarily rescues black and white ("tuxedo") and black cats because of their historic difficulty in being placed through shelters. However, this focus does not preclude rescue of other cats in need.

Tuxedo Junction Rescue believes in thinking globally and caring LOCALLY, and only adopts to permanent residents of the greater Austin area. People outside Austin are encouraged to use this site to find their new family member from a shelter or rescue organization in their area.

Come Meet Our Pets...
