Adoptapalooza Pet of the Day! Meet Vaska, the Mushball Cat

This 2-year-old tabby used to call a gas station "home"

For every pet living with a happy family, there is an animal in a shelter waiting to find a loving home. Today we’d like you to meet Vaska, a roly-poly gray tabby who will be in New York City’s Washington Square Park on Sunday, looking for a forever home.

This 2-year-old “mushball” has been staying with the Picasso Veterinary Fund since he was found living at a gas station. But there’s nothing tough about him – Vaska likes sliding off his bed headfirst to amuse himself, and loves purring loudly and chirping when he’s happy.

“You’d think he was a mother because he adores kittens,” says Picasso Fund coordinator Siobhan Healy.

This affectionate and playful jokester loves to be carried and adores being around people. He almost doesn’t sound like a cat!

The Picasso Veterinary Fund, along with Vaska and other animals, will be at Adoptapalooza on Sunday. Stop by this free event to get to know all the wonderful adoptable pets – and to meet a few of us from!
