Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (Mostly)||Age:||Kitten|
Rupert is a very easygoing kitten who loves to be petted. He also enjoys cuddling with other cats. Rupert is an adorable kitten who is affected by Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), which means his cerebellum is underdeveloped. Most likely, his momma had distemper when she was pregnant with him and it affected his growth. For kitties with CH, it can be challenging to walk, eat, or use a litter box; however, Rupert, like many CH kitties, has learned to do all of these things very well, working around his disability. He likes to run and play with other cats and toys. DOB September 2012
Rescue Group Info...
Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.
Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.

All potential adopters are required to complete a comprehensive application and interview, and will need to supply proper identification, as well as personal and veterinary references. Our adoption fee is $100 for kittens 6 months or younger, and $75 for any cat over six months of age. Our fee includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccines to-date of adoption, and a microchip. Once approved, all adopters are required to sign an adoption contract.
Tenth Life serves needy homeless cats in the St. Louis area, offering them much-needed medical care, love, and finding them permanent, loving homes.
