Adopt Me: Ziggy would be the purrfect sidekick

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!
