Austin Pets Alive! Pet of the Week: Salad

Looking for a new cat to take home? Meet Salad!

Earlier this week, Austin Monthly announced their new partnership with Austin Pets Alive! to help rescued animals get adopted. Each Tuesday they’ll be showcasing a different cat or dog so that we can get acquainted with the adorable canine or feline before deciding to bring them home.


Salad

Whether or not you like your veggies, you’re going to find yourself craving Salad. This stunning, Seal Point Siamese mix has sky-blue eyes and thrives on affection and company. He can be a little shy at first, but soon enough he will seek out your attention. Then it’s game on! He’ll roll over for pets, purr up a storm and make tiny biscuits…all because he adores you.

Salad is a well-mannered, friendly boy who was rescued by APA! from a hoarding situation. Despite his past, he’s an all-over happy guy and is such a nice housemate who politely uses his litterbox and scratching post. He absolutely LOVES other cats and would very much enjoy having a kitty companion.

Salad is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides some medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV+ typically have a shortened lifespan. Salad is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

Salad is in need of a hero who will give him the loving family he has been deprived of for so long. This deserving, gentle spirit has so much love to give and is more than ready to be a companion kitty in a quiet, loving home. If you’re suddenly in the mood for Salad, follow your heart and  meet him today!

Sex: Male
Breed: Seal Point Siamese Mix
Age: 2 Years
Weight: 10 pounds

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.

For further information or to meet Salad please email adopt@austinpetsalive.org.

Note: This pet may have been adopted since publishing, but there are plenty of other adorable animals waiting for a forever home at Austin Pets Alive!

Singled Out ATX

You remember MTV’s Singled Out right?
“RIGHT HERE WE HAVE 50 SINGLE WOMEN”
“AND 50 SINGLE GUYS”

What better way to kick the month off by celebrating with free drinks, raffle prizes, VVS spinning, and a room full of single Austinites at one of the best spaces on the East Side?!! (There is not a better way to do this. I already checked. There are zero fun events this night. Until now.)

FREE RSVP HERE

YES we are going to have a real life version of Singled Out.
YES all guests will be single (although talented wingwomen/men are welcome).
YES of course we’re raising $ for charity (stay tuned!).
And yes, David & I are scanning Tinder & Bumble to make sure the guest list is satisfactory for both the ladies and the men. You’re welcome. (Carpal Tinder is a real thing. Someone invite a hand masseuse.)

THANK YOU to Mighty Swell Cocktails Cathead Vodka Dulce Vida TequilaSouth Austin Brewery for helping us kick off Feb the best way possible –#SingledOutATX
