My Story

Hi everyone! My name is Soren, after the famous philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. I am about 2 years old and I'm the most laid-back boy you will ever meet. I am a total purr monster and I will melt into your arms immediately. I will even hold your hand while you are petting me. I am a very inquisitive, outgoing, social boy with gorgeous eyes and a heart of gold. I like talking with my foster mom and will even give a little booty waggle when I'm getting ready to pounce on a toy. But most of all, I just like being next to a hooman who gives me lots of love. I don't like dogs much, but I am working on being introduced to other kitty friends. With my mellow personality, I will fit purr-fectly with your family. Although I know once you meet me, you will wonder where I've been all your life, so prepare to fall in love and meet the philosopher of your dreams. Adoption fee: $60. Adopt a pair: $90. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of cats is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable cats, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each cat or kitten as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our cats based on personality, not by breed label.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
