Tinker needs a new home! He came to the shelter in June of 2018, sadly due to the passing of his owner. This butterball weighs in at 20 lbs. Can you tell he was once the pampered house pet of a sweet retired lady? Now Tinker needs a new person to spoil him. He was gotten as a kitten and kept as a pampered house pet all his life. He is used to the good life! He’s got a lot of character and is quite outspoken. While he doesn’t like to be picked up, he does love to be pet and will lay beside you to get as much affection as you will give. He also has the coolest super loud cricket purr. When he is happy, it sounds like a 20 lb. cricket made its way into the room. 🙂 Tinker also adores water. If you leave a faucet dripping, he will be right there to want to play in it. He also is fascinated by the water in his bowl, and likes to splish splash in it.
He is fine with other cats, though doesn’t seem to know about dogs so much. He might get used to them with time. He was born on August 21, 2012.
Tinker has been neutered and will come up to date on his vaccines as a part of his adoption fee. He has been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), had a negative fecal float to check for internal parasites, and is feline leukemia negative.
If you are interested in adopting Tinker, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or stop in during open hours and meet him, no appointment necessary. (M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1.) Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play with the critters here; they love it!
