Adoptable pet of the week: Vin

on September 17, 2013

Vin is an energetic male kitten, approximately 5 months old. Inspired by
his movie-star namesake, Vin dreams of growing up to be an action movie
star and never seems to tire of practicing his moves. He excels at
running, pouncing, kicking, jumping, leaping and wrestling. He is also a
bit of a goofball whose antics will never fail to bring a smile to your
face. Once Vin has tuckered himself out, he transforms into a charming
leading man who will melt your heart with his melodious purrs and
silky-soft fur. Vin does not like dogs, but, with a proper introduction,
he may be able to live with another playful young cat. Since he can
sometimes play a bit rough, we recommend a home without young children.

Vin has been neutered, microchipped, and is current on his vaccinations.
One of Vin’s many admirers has sponsored his adoption fee, which means
he is FREE to adopt to a qualified guardian. To adopt, all household
members must meet with Vin, whether family or roommates.

For more information about Vin, check-out his Petfinder profile: or visit Oakland Animal
Services at 1101 29th Ave. in Oakland, CA.

Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both

safety and animal welfare–and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected
and abandoned animals within its facility.
