Meow! My name is Pokey
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
I am one of six siblings born in an industrial park to a feral mom who was trapped and spayed. We were trapped near the end of the age period when taming feral kittens is easiest, so some of us are a bit on the shy side; especially at adoption clinic. We will need special, understanding homes, but warm up quickly once we get to know you. All of us have been exposed to, and got along with, large cat-friendly dogs as young kittens. My date of birth is October 15, 2012.
I am the most laid back of my litter-mates. I have a very sweet side to my personality and when I get used to a new home and new people, I am likely to be very affectionate. I am often inseparable from my foster parents when they are lying on the bed, and love to give licks. I am very playful, energetic, and will chase anything, including other cats, so other kitties in my home better be ready for some serious activity! I would do very well adopted with any of my siblings, and likely with any other young, active cat. Are you my forever family?
Come see me at Petco, 6300 San Mateo NE at San Mateo/Academy Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-5pm.
When you do bring me home, make a 'safe' room for me while I get used to the smells and sounds of my new home. I'll adjust better this way! This will also give me a 'safe' place to go if I get scared.
Please call FAT KATZ, 505-293-2830 or email FatKatzAbq@Gmail.com for more info or questions! You can also inquire about fostering cats because we always need fosters! The number fosters we have determines how many kitties we can help!
