Meet Binkie:

Hi, my name is Binkie, and I came to Safe Place for Pets a short while ago with my two siblings Patrick Swayze and Minnie Mouse. Our mom passed away not long ago, and her very good friend has been caring for us since she got sick. But now it’s time for us to find a new fur-ever home and family to love us. We are all three very good friends who love each other, so we would be happy to go together, but we’re not ‘bonded’, and could just as easily go to separate homes.

As far as I myself am concerned, I’m about 11 years old, a female spayed domestic shorthair tortoiseshell. In case you’re wondering what that means, a tortoiseshell is similar to a calico but with no white, and our colors are all jumbled together – kind of like they were put in a blender 😹. Dilute means that instead of my colors being a mixture of black and orange, they are gray and cream. So there’s your bit of cat trivia for the day! I am 12.5 pounds, and the vet said that I’m just a tiny bit plump and could lose a few pounds. Otherwise I’m very healthy 😸. I should also mention that I still have my claws and am an indoor cat.

Of the five of us, Mom’s friend says that I am the most outgoing. I certainly like to be loved on. I am also the one who is closest to my other 4 siblings. I’m not trying to say that they aren’t loving as well, but I am just an all-around lover! One quirk about me is that unlike most cats, I like vacuums. As a matter of fact, I even like to be vacuumed! I also love to play with toys and have a small scratching post with a cave attached that I really like. I will be taking it along with me when I leave Safe Place; trust me on that! I’m a lap cat and liked to sleep with Mom (we all did,) but I’m also more than happy to say hello to a stranger and ask to be petted and ‘scritched’. I get along with dogs just fine, but since Mom didn’t have any children around I’m not sure how well I’d do with them.

I think I’ve given you a fairly good ‘self-portrait’ 😸. I hope it inspires you to come down to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center and meet me. Of course you can also meet my siblings, but where this is concerned I’m all about me! I am a cat after all 😜. The Welcome Center is located at 1520 N. Hancock next to the Senior Center and is open at least a few hours most days. But if you want to make sure to meet me, just call Safe Place at (719) 359-0201 or email them at I hope to see you soon!
