Adopt Me: Ziggy would be the purrfect sidekick (adopted)

His toys are packed and he's ready for adventure when you’re ready to play

OttawaMatters, in partnership with the Ottawa Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Meet Ziggy (ID# A219379), a sweet 13-year-old orange tabby domestic shorthaired cat looking for his forever family.

My personality type is “sidekick”. I am the cat’s meow and a bit of everything you’d expect from a kitty. I enjoy a bit of quiet time, but I am no couch potato.

I enjoy my cat naps as much as the next guy, but my toys are packed and I’m ready for adventure when you’re ready to play.

I like affection, but I am content to entertain myself until you’re ready for me to warm your lap. I guess I am just a little bit of all good things wrapped up in a steady companion. I suppose you could say I am pretty much purrfect.

Some unique facts about me: I’m a sweet cat that loves attention but can be shy at first until I get used to my new home and environment.

I have lived with young, active children before and have lived with another cat previously and exposed to small dogs before. I use my scratching post every day, enjoy playing with a variety of toys, chatting with my owners and sleep in bed with you.

Ziggy is relaxing at the Ottawa Humane Society. Please contact 613-725-3166 ext. 258 to book an appointment to meet him!
