My story

Isn't Athena an amazing cat name? So fitting for an amazing cat. Her owner adopted her a decade ago, and she has been a loyal companion. Her owner has become too ill to care for her, and we stepped in and brought her to our rescue. Tyson's Place's mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets.

Her original owner says Athena loves people. She understands a lot of human words and phrases such as sit, stay, turn around, let's play, and birds. She is a talker and likes to make small talk! She enjoys sunbathing and bird watching either live or on You Tube. She keeps limber by playing with a laser toy for 20 minutes every night. She is considered a dog in a cat's body.

She also enjoys being groomed, sitting in laps, and being pet. Did you know orange female cats are rare? Only 1 in 5 orange cats are female. Athena is such as gem - rare in color and rare in amazing personality.

Athena does not appreciate the company of dogs and prefers a home without cats. A quiet house would be best for her to feel comfortable. She would be ok with older kids respectful with her space. She 13 years old and is current on vaccinations and microchipped. She has great litter box habits. She is also front declawed.

More about this rescue

Our mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding homes for their pets. Since we help people receiving hospice care, heading into nursing homes, or families after the pet owner died, we often receive older animals. WE value older animals and cherish all that they can offer to their new family. We do not have a physical facility, so we rely on volunteers to foster the pets in their home until they are adopted.
