Available for Adoption, Rutland VT

Handsome, talkative, and affectionate guy who loves to play and has three toes on his front paws!

Tango – Male Kitten: early June, 2023

Tango is a fluffy boy. He plays hard, loves harder. Once playtime is over it’s all cuddles. He is talkative and will let you know when he’s hungry, purrs when he’s content, fake-growls and trills during playtime. He was born with only 3 toes (and a “thumb”) on each of his front paws! He has a hard time grabbing things like string but otherwise has no impact.

He plays with the younger cats sometimes, teases the older cats and gets bopped on the head by them, and will curl up on the back of the couch peacefully when other cats are sleeping on the couch or the other end of the back of the couch.
That said, he only gets his purr in high gear for me when we are alone in the cat room and I am petting him there
Summary–he likes other cats just fine (there was growling and some fisticuffs at first–normal), but he would also be happy to be the only cat somewhere with a loving human who is happy with a cat who likes pats but not being picked up.

Tango: early June, 2023

We estimate that Tango was born in mid-September 2022. He has been neutered, microchipped, and given age-appropriate vaccines. He tested negative for FeLV and FIV. He is ready to go to his Forever Family.

Tango: early June, 2023

Tango is happy to be a house cat! He was born to a feral mom and captured by his advocate early enough for easy socialization. We think he is good with dogs, but he is not good with young children. He loves the pampered life, tasty healthy food, cozy places to sleep, and lots of attention. If you think he might be the right fit for your family, please fill out an Adoption Application below and put his name at the top!
