Meet Taz

Taz is a handsome 11-year-old independent guy looking for his forever home. He is a beautiful black and white long-haired cat with white mittens and a charming thin mustache John Waters-esque mustache.

For a lot of the day, Taz is a big couch potato who has his favorite spots to sit and nap. He can have a goofy side where he likes to chase his own tail or a wand toy. He will bat around toys on the ground to chase and pounce on. He is independent and does not require much affection from his owner, but he does appreciate pets, especially on his head and upper back. He likes to receive pets for short periods of time - if you pet too long, he sometimes does start to get crabby and may swipe at you (with a declawed paw). Once you get accustomed to Taz’s preferences, you can tell when it’s time to let him get back to napping.

Taz is on a prescription diet (Hills m/d) and he has been started on anxiety medication (which he eats in his food). He was very skittish when he came into foster care and the anxiety medication has helped a lot to get him out of his shell.

He is declawed on his front paws. He uses the litter box perfectly. Because he has long hair, he would benefit from regular brushing to help with keeping your house free of Taz-hair tumbleweeds and to avoid hairballs.

He chats back to you if you talk to him and will meow to let you know when he is hungry or wants to play. He purrs up a storm when you pet him and when he is about to get fed.

Taz would be happy as the only pet in a household. He lives with 2 adults and a resident cat. Taz and the resident cat coexist but they do not really enjoy each other’s company. He would do best in a quiet home without young children. He would benefit from a dedicated decompression room like an office or spare bedroom (where you are comfortable sitting with him for a while) to help him gain confidence in a new environment.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are best estimate.

Adoption fees include a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

All cats have received comprehensive veterinary care and tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV unless otherwise stated. Cats are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations and have been spayed/neutered, treated for fleas and/or ear mites, de-wormed, and microchipped. Please note there may be additional follow up visits and boosters that are not covered by Pet Haven after adoption.
