Adopt Me: Could you be Lou's second chance?

He would prefer a home without young children, but is fine around dogs and other cats

TimminsToday, in partnership with the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


(Humane Society)

Hello, it's great to meet you! I'm Lou, a laid back one-year-old brown/black tabby. I entered the doors of the Timmins & District Humane Society over 100 days ago because the kids of the house and I were not having positive interactions.

I'm already neutered and am up-to-date on deworming treatments and vaccines. I'm told that I'm very handsome, relaxed, and have a great personality. I'm content lounging in a pile of bedding or perching in front of the window all day.

I'm looking for a great home and a loving family that will give me a second chance to show just what a good boy and a wonderful comrade I can be!

I would be most comfortable in a home without young children. I do fine around dogs and other cats, with time and a proper introduction. I really hope that I get to meet you soon.

Other adoptable tabby cats similar to Lou: Cleo, Brownie, Allison, Lena, Luna, Lily, and Trivago

All TDHS dog and cat adoptions include the animal’s spay or neuter surgery, vaccines, deworming treatment, a sample bag of Science Diet kibble, coupons, and six pre-paid weeks of pet insurance through Pet Secure. We also facilitate small animal adoptions (e.g. ferrets, bunnies, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, etc); please contact us to inquire about the adoption process for those little ones.
