Chipper is definitely in the “way cool” orange cat category
When I was growing up, my dad had a charming male orange tabby cat he named “Redrick”. Dad always swore up and down that orange cats were by far the best, and his boy was definitely true to form. Redrick was extremely affectionate, and had a dog-like loyalty. Wherever my dad went and whatever he was doing around the house, Redrick was right there- “helping”. Dad had the wonderful pleasure of enjoying his orange boy for seventeen years.
When we got “Chipper” in as a stray, we could see right away that he has the great orange cat qualities. He is extremely affectionate- he simply adores people of all ages. Chipper loves to sit on laps and to be held- any attention he receives sends him into auto-purr mode.
He would be a wonderful addition to an even busier household, as not much seems to fluster him.
Anytime he spots someone approaching his cage, he sticks his orange-striped paws through the bars as if to say “Are you coming to see me? Are you coming to take me home and love me?”
We are so hoping that Chipper’s person is out there, just waiting to meet him- it could truly be a match made in heaven.
Are you missing “Grandpa”?
This older and very thin tiger cat was brought into the shelter several weeks ago by a kind lady who just lives a block away, which made us think he must belong to someone who lost him quite close to the shelter.
We named him “Grandpa” and he is in foster care while we hope someone comes for him. He is very affectionate, and has a meow like the creak of a rusty gate hinge. He is a neutered brown tabby, with just a little white around his mouth.
If you are missing “Grandpa” please come and ask about him. He tells us he is too old to put up with a lot of new things, and he just wants to come home.
