Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Tamara. My animal id is #70089. I am a desexed female tortoiseshell cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 7 years 3 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 7/23/2019.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Tamara is at risk for medical reasons. Tamara was diagnosed with feline leukemia virus which is contagious to other animals and will require long term care. Tamara also has coccidia which will need further care. Behaviorally, Tamara would do well in most homes.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A staff member writes, "Tamara's history is a mystery, but it doesn't take much to get to know her. She's a petite gorgeous girl who will greet you by the front of the kennel when you go to meet her. She is very affectionate and will lean in for petting almost immediately as soon as you make contact, and then she'll purr softly in your arms. Although she's little, she has a big personality and really loves attention. If you like sweet, petite kitties, come by ACC and meet her today!"
