My story

Abandoned at a farm with their mama, these three lucky kittens found their way to UAAF and a special foster home. Weaned and ready to find their forever homes, these 13-week old siblings (Tuk Tuk, Namaari and Sisu) share some common traits. They are all adventurous and very playful. They LOVE wand toys and stuffed mice. They also love to scratch, so a scratching post is a must! After a strenuous play session, they all love to cuddle up next to each other, other cats in the home (or tolerant dogs). Namaari and Sisu especially love their people. They have all been good with the other cats and cat savvy dogs in their foster home.

The only boy in the group, Tuk Tuk is the most confident and tends to hang out by himself more than the others. Like all kittens, however, he would still love a play mate! He does like to perch up high and observe what is happening. Tuk Tuk doesn’t mind the dogs, but they do make him nervous if they startle him. And he will puff his tail and hiss, but if they leave him alone, he’s happy to ignore them.

Kittens do best when they are raised with another kitten or young cat. Tuk Tuk and his siblings will need to go to a home with at least one other cat. Or you could adopt two of them or all three!

Tuk Tuk has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for Felv/Fiv and has been microchipped.

You can visit at the Salt Lake PetSmart (389 West 1830 S.) the third Saturday of every month from 11-3 pm.

Why adoption is a great option

Tuk Tuk, a Salt Lake City Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Salt Lake City, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Salt Lake City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Salt Lake City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Salt Lake City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Salt Lake City paves the way for another one to be saved.
