Bob-Tailed Kitty, Coyle, Fishing For New Digs

Coyle and and other cats are waiting to be adopted from Purrfect Pals inside PetSmart at The Landing in Renton.

Hi my name is Coyle (after that fishing community in Jefferson County). I originally came to Purrfect Pals 6 years ago with my mother and her other kittens.

I was adopted all those years ago but recently was found in a shelter where I could run out of time. I am a very sweet boy and at the moment I am more interested in snuggling in a cozy bed. I currently have scabs covering parts of my body, but they are healing. I am on a hypoallergenic diet because regular food seems to trigger allergies, which are causing my skin to be itchy.

I am not able to tell my friends here at Purrfect Pals all that I have been through in my past 6 yrs and since my previous family abandoned me they aren't talking either. I am friendly with other cats and don't understand when they introduce themselves with "bad words" (like hiss) or want to promote violence with a swat. I am looking for a loving forever home that will keep me safe and loved for a lifetime. I would be fine with a cat buddy but it would be best if they are also on the hypoallergenic food too. I was born with a stumpy little tail that I like to wag when I am curious or excited (some say like a puppy). Other than my allergies I am healthy.

Come meet me at the PetSmart Purrfect Pals location at The Landing and consider making me part of your family.  Purrfect Pals saves the lives of more than 2,500 homeless cats each year. In addition to adopting cats through PetSmart and our other partner store's adoption centers, we help place special needs cats and provide a comfortable long-term sanctuary for cats diagnosed with Feline leukemia and FIV positive cats. We also offer low cost spays/neuters for cats to low income individuals and families. 

Purrfect Pals does not allow "gift" adoptions. All cats (with the exception of "barn cats" adopted from our shelter in Arlington) must be indoor-only. If you rent your home, please come prepared with a copy of your lease or other documentation that states your landlord allows pets.

The photo doesn't do Coyle justice. He was at Lynnwood Petsmart for several months until he finally got adopted and then was returned recently. He didn't do anything wrong in his previous households. He's a very gentle, laidback kitty who got along with the other cats in the adoption room. I think he would do best as the only cat in a quiet home. I am an adoption counselor for Purrfect Pals at Lynnwood.

Thanks for the extra details, Ramona! If you have a better picture of Coyle, feel free to upload it to this article (just click the 'Upload Photos and Videos' button under Coyle's picture and follow the steps). Rescue cats are great. I adopted one more than three years ago (from Whidbey Animals' Improvement Foundation) and he's the friendliest cat I've known!
