Featured Adoptable Pet: Twinkie

The Sweetest Cat I’ve Ever Met

The expert veterinary staff at North Shore Animal League America meets thousands of animals each year. Every animal we rescue is given a thorough examination by our medical team, and we also treat animals brought in by pet owners who live in the vicinity of our Pet Health Center.

So when Gabriel Lozano, one of our vet technicians, calls an animal “the sweetest cat I’ve ever met,” you can be sure he’s had a whole lot of experience on which to base that resounding endorsement.

Gabriel was referring to Twinkie, the sweet cat pictured here, who was one of our recent Help Me Heal pets. Twinkie, whom we rescued from a municipal shelter in New York City, had arrived at Animal League America with a broken pelvis (click here for the full story).

Gabriel developed a strong bond with Twinkie during the cat’s recuperation in our Medical Center. He offered to take Twinkie home and provide him with foster care until he was completely healed. He has been living with Gabriel and his family since late October.

We’re happy to report that Twinkie, who is about one-and-a-half years old, is ready to find a permanent home with an individual or family that will provide him with a lifetime of love. Twinkie will always have a limp, but Gabriel reports that he gets around very well, sometimes running to the door to greet Gabriel when he returns from work.

Twinkie is completely trained to use the litter box and has a healthy appetite. He loves to cuddle and offer affection. Are you the perfect match for Twinkie? We’d love for you to meet him to find out.

To arrange a meeting with Twinkie, please contact Alex Bab, our Foster Care Coordinator, at 516-883-7900, ext. 352, or email him at alexanderb@animalleague.org.
