Meet Tabasco

Tabasco, our 2 year old 12 pound tabby, is the mom to our previously posted kittens, Ripley and Jones. She was pregnant and in a very crowded situation so we stepped in to help so Tabasco could have her babies in a safe space. Now that Ripley and Jones are old enough to be adopted, Tabasco is ready to forget all about being a mother and is ready to be someone's lap-cat.

Affectionate, confident and very sweet, Tabasco loves attention. She has mastered the art of the head-butt and will immediately purr and make biscuits. Being young herself, Tabasco still has a bit of a wild streak, and likes to play the piano at night and toss toys about. Despite her night-owl tendencies, Tabasco is very good in the house and is litter box trained.

Tabasco was a great mother and protected her kittens from all the other animals in her foster home. Since leaving motherhood behind, Tabasco appears to be dog-tolerant but she's not interested in having a cat roommate. We think a cat-savvy dog friend and a slow introduction would work well. Kids over 6 would also be fine as long as they are respectful of cats.

Tabasco is microchipped, spayed, FeLV/FIV negative and current on her flea treatment.

We know it's a little early for Mother's Day, but we're still hoping this mom can celebrate in her forever home. Is that yours? Apply to adopt at
