She was first spotted hanging around 188th St. back in mid August. The person who found her sent a photo but Marlee was too shy to come close. She was described on our site as being long hair and a male. Her fur was quite matted so she likely looked to have longer fur.

"Abby-2015", DSH Black & White, 8 years Old

Adopt Me

Abby-2015

Breed:
DSH Black & White 
Sex:
Female 
Age:
8 years Old 
VIPP#:
Abby 
Contact VIPP About Me

Abby is almost 8 years old and very sweet and gentle. She is used to a quiet house and is extremely timid. Although she would probably be fine in a quiet house with another gentle (not hyper) cat or two - as she likes cozying up to and sleeping with other cats. She has never nipped, bitten or scratched. She is very gentle – but she is just very uncomfortable with people.
Abby has been 100% indoors. She has no experience with the outdoors and might be helpful to note that she has no experience with children or other animals (dogs, birds, etc) – so therefore no track record how she would be in this environment. She enjoys being combed and light brushing and being pet and she needs a quiet household with a family that is patient and willing to give love and care for an animal they may not reciprocate with a sense of devotion and affection.

Punky's owner's family came from out of town and they took Salty but since they didn't know that Punky was at VIPP, she was left behind. A dear friend of the owner tried to take Punky but the resident cat would have nothing of it so Punky remains an orphan. She has a big story and she loves to talk about it.

If you are taking too long, he will gently touch you with his paw to remind you of your duty to him. Pudge gets along with other cats but he is afraid of dogs. Pudge would likely do best in a quiet home with older kids. Pudge came to VIPP on 3/29/14.
