Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Zippy

12-year-old Zippy is young at heart and is an energetic, playful cat. Make an appointment to meet him at Animal Friends.


Breed: Domestic Longhair | Sex: Male
Age: 12.3 years | Weight: 9.6 pounds
Arrived: Dec. 19, 2020

Don’t let this handsome boy’s age fool you!  Zippy is young at heart and is an energetic, playful and affectionate older cat. He enjoys lounging in the window watching the birds, playing with teaser toys and most importantly, snuggling up with anyone who will sit down long enough for him to cuddle up with. Zippy does have hyperthyroid disease and stage 2 kidney disease but is doing very well on his prescription diet and medication. Zippy only wants to be the only cat in the home. We feel like Zippy still has a lot of life and love to give a lucky adopter who is willing to continue his veterinary care.

Animal Friends is still open for adoptions by appointment only, please email our Adoption team at AdoptionInfo@ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org to set up a time to visit.

Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our cats in person. A typical adoption can take up to an hour. Please visit at least one hour before closing if you plan to adopt that day.

Twice as nice! When you adopt two cats from Animal Friends, we only request a single adoption donation.
