Facts about Tess

  • Breed: Calico
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Pretty 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 recently had her teeth removed due to painful stomatitis, but this does not interfere with her eating. However, this is something her adoptive family would need to keep an eye on, because it may still be a reoccurring condition.

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 closed-intake sanctuary for rescued cats who, for reasons of age, health, or behavioral issues, are not considered adoptable to members of the general public. The mission of this organization is to provide sheltering, veterinary care and loving attention to these cats as they live out their lives in the safety of our sanctuary.

Tuxedo Junction Rescue will consider making the cats listed on available for adoption to experienced adopters who are willing and able to devote the time, effort and expense of a lifetime commitment to care for a special needs cat.

We are a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) charity and are supported entirely by donations.

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.
