Tyrone's Story

Meet Tyrone! While we don’t know much about this friendly orange boy’s life before he was rescued, his rough appearance and clipped ear suggested he had been fending for himself on the streets for quite some time. What we do know is that despite his rough beginnings, Tyrone is the sweetest lap kitty you will ever meet! This beautiful, 11-year-old orange tabby loves everyone! Confident and affectionate, Tyrone enjoys meeting new people and hanging out with the other kitties at the Adoption Center.

Tyrone recently spent a month in a foster home, where he lived with an adult male cat, a female kitten, and a small dog. He got along great with all the resident pets, especially the kitten! Despite their age difference, Tyrone and his foster sister loved running up and down the hall together, play-wrestling, and hanging out together. Tyrone also enjoyed playing with wand toys and chasing the laser and he and the kitten had fun racing through crinkly cat tunnels. His foster mom reported Tyrone was a quiet, sweet, and well-behaved little gentleman who seemed grateful and happy to be living in a home. His favorite activity was snuggling with his human friends and he would curl up for some lap time to watch baseball on TV with his humans (he’s quite the Cubs fan!). Tyrone would purr up a storm when he was picked up and cuddled, and showed affection by giving kisses on the arm or hand. When he wanted time alone, Tyrone would burrow beneath blankets and pillows and peek out to see what was happening. At night, he always slept cuddled up in bed with his foster mom and did not mind sharing with the dog or the other cats.

Tyrone was recently diagnosed with kidney disease and will need an adopter who is comfortable with managing this condition and able to provide him with ongoing medical care. Despite his age and medical status, this handsome boy is still quite active and playful and has so much love to spread! Can you give Tyrone the forever home he has been waiting for?
