Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!


Animal Friends

This cool cat is Chrome! He’s a fearless guy who would love a fun-loving forever family. If you’re looking to add a cat to your home, he might just be the guy for you!

Animal Friends Pet Profile:
Chrome is a cool cat. A very cool cat. There is something so alluring about him — he is confident, leader-like, playful, loving, friendly and so handsome. He is very lively and loves to play with toys, people and other cats. He loves to wrestle. It is a good idea to watch your arm, because it could be the victim of a toothy takedown.

He is great with other cats and will make fast friends with any feline, especially one who likes physical play. If cat MMA or wrestling ever becomes popular, then Chrome is sure to be the champ. When he isn’t practicing his half nelson, he is snuggling with his human.

He likes lap time and will purr and nuzzle. Be careful. When lover boy gets overstimulated, he nips, so we recommend his adopter be an experienced cat owner who can mitigate this.

At some point in his life, Chrome had a leg injury and he walks with a limp due to bone spurs. He doesn’t let his injury stop his antics, but he would do best in a home where jumping from high places is not an option. He’ll benefit from joint supplements for his arthritis. Someone loves Chrome so much they have sponsored his adoption fee. If he sounds like a good fit for you and your home, stop by Animal Friends to meet him today!

If you can help, come to Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa., 15237 or call 412-847-7002. For more information on how you can adopt any of the pets at Animal Friends, visit their website here!
