Adopt a Truffle of Your Very Own!

No, not my Truffles!!! This Truffle is up for adoption via PAWS in Norwalk, CT. She was recently featured on Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, one of my favorite blogs, and given the fact that she shares a name with my special fur baby, I felt compelled to share her here as well.

Truffle is 10 years old and has lived at the shelter for FIVE LONG YEARS!!! She's receiving wonderful care at PAWS, but don't you agree that it's about time she find a forever home of her own???

Just look at her...

Here's a little more about her via ASVL:

Truffle isn't exactly a lapcat, but she IS affectionate. All of the volunteers and staff have to be careful not to trip as she weaves happily in and out of our legs. She also enjoys being pet on the head and behind her ears, but will let you know when she's had enough. Her coloring and markings are strikingly unique, and her fur is extra downy soft. And she enjoys sunpuddles and playing!

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Truffle does have a condition called stomatitis - inflammation in her gums that flares up every so often. But she hasn't been on medication for a while, and is doing very well. She is also on a wet food only diet (but that's a good thing, as it helps her maintain her girlish figure ... MOL). Truffle is 10 years old, up to date on vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She's also microchipped.

I can't think of anything more wonderful than getting Truffle into her forever home for Christmas. Please share her story on Facebook, Twitter, and all of your other social media. 


  1. What a sweetie she is. We admire the people at PAWS so much. ASVL and Shelter-Cats.com are wonderful and beautiful blogs. We hope there are lots of adoptions...and especially one for Truffles.

  4. wow - that is a long time. we hope maybe Santa can find her a home BEFORE Catmas

  5. That's way too long to live in a shelter! Sharing this pretty kitty.

  6. Awww. Go, Truffle, Go! You can do it! She's beautiful. Thanks for sharing her pretty face. I hope she finds a home soon! - Crepes.

  7. Oh my word, if we didn't live over 5 states away I would get her! I think someone close by would love to have her. The kitty we picked up from our local shelter had no tail - so she wasn't wanted by many families. We gladly and lovingly grabbed her up and took her home! She's awesome. :) I pray Truffles gets a family soon!

  8. Truffle is adorable and I sure hope she'll find her home for the holidays!

  9. She is beautiful. I hope she gets a forever home soon.

  10. Oh! Thank you so much for featuring our sweet friend Truffle, Melissa! And for saying such nice things about us ::blushes::.

    Yes, it would be great if Truffle could find her very own forever home in time for the holidays. We all love her so much, but she really does deserve a home of her very own!

    Thanks again. We appreciate you! :)

    Big hugs!

  11. It is definitely time for her to have a home of her own. We have two kitties in our house with stomatitis and it is easily managed. Hope she finds her home for the holidays. We will share.
