Meet Tulip

Tulip is a totally tubular tortoiseshell temptress! This little babe has just about everything going for her: a precious squeaky meow, affectionate head butts GALORE, and just the right amount of torti-tude. In fact, she is sooo assertive with her head butting that cleaning or rearranging her condo with her present in it is quite the challenge! She demands that the focus be on her; petting her, talking to her, doting on her, admiring her beauty… She has no qualms about repeatedly headbutting your hand until you stop whatever you were attempting to do AND JUST PET HER, DANG IT!

A home with plenty of windows for birdwatching would be purrfect for this curious lady. She’ll sit in a windowsill for hours if you’ve got one! She’s a bit nosy and wants to know what all is going on in the neighborhood, but from the safety and comfort of her home and a nice plush pillow, of course!

Tulip really is a perfectly sweet little lady. She lived with another cat (our handsome, quirky little buddy Citgo. Go check him out!) and doesn’t seem to pay the other cats in the room any mind. As such, she’d probably do just fine in an home with other cats. We aren’t sure about dogs, but don’t really foresee any major issues, with proper intros/integration. Kids who are gentle and respectful should be just fine with this little lady as well. She really is kind of an all around perfect companion. Give her a warm lap to cuddle up on and she’ll be beyond content!


Breed/mix: domestic short hair

Age guesstimate: a few years old

Approximate weight/size: pretty average for an adult female cat! That’s pretty much the only average thing about her though, because everything else is just spectacular!

Energy level: medium. Has great playmate potential AND great lap cat potential. Best of both worlds! She does love to jump on and climb up our cat tree, so she requests that some sort of cat tree/tower/shelf situation be provided!

Cattitide: pretty low! She’s got some sass, but not in a naughty way, if that makes sense. She just knows what she wants and she’s gonna go for it!

If little tortie Tulip sounds like just your type, please fill out our adoption application!

Tulip’s adoption fee is $150.00.

*A supplemental fee toward the cost of spay or neuter may be applicable, and would be paid directly to our veterinarian upon pickup from veterinary hospital at time of discharge. The animal will be made current on core vaccines and will be microchipped. Cats will be tested for FIV/feline leukemia virus and dogs will be tested for heartworm disease and tick borne illness.
