Meet Pom Pom! Arriving as an older kitten, Pom Pom needed more help than most to transition to shelter life and prepare himself for family life. Enter our dedicated feline pet behavior team who made a home for him in a tranquil area, relieving his stress and frustration while our medical team committed themselves to discovering a successful plan to treat his chronic irritable bowel disease.

Pom Pom also happens to be very smart! He’s been clicker-trained and is known to high-five with his paw. He really pulls out all the stops to charm everyone he meets.

In the Pet Sponsorship Program, his medical needs, controlled through diet and medication, will be provided for as long as he needs it, even if it’s for the rest of his life. Thank you Sponsors!

Pom Pom has been enjoying cage free living in a private space on our Port Washington, N.Y. campus. Visitors are surprised to learn this enthusiastic greeter has lived almost his whole life with our dedicated Feline Pet Behavior Team. Dropped here as a kitten, Pom Pom didn’t enjoy the chaos of the adoption floor, so we set him up in a much more comfortable environment. Now feeling safe, he welcomes guests with chipper chirps and beats them to the chair for a cuddle in their lap. This 2 year old is thriving on his sunbathed perches, surrounded by the familiar faces of our staff and volunteers. We know there’s more to life waiting for him out there and we’re working tirelessly so Pom Pom will realize the dream of being adopted into a loving home. But thanks to the support of his Sponsors, he will have everything he needs to live a happy, healthy life in our care until his special day arrives.
