‘Whirlpool’ the cat is up for adoption in Alexandria

Like his name, hanging out with Whirlpool the cat is relaxing. The 17-month-old male gray tabby cat with piercing golden eyes is up for adoption with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Whirlpool is currently enjoying a stay with one of the AWLA’s foster caregivers, where he has built a collection of blanket nests throughout the home where you can find him lounging throughout the day.

“”Looking for someone to tell about your day?” asked AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter. “Once Whirlpool feels comfortable in his new home, he’s an affectionate fellow who loves to let his human friends know when it’s time for ear and chin scratches by gently butting them with his head.”

Learn more about Whirlpool and schedule time to meet him from his foster home by emailing [email protected] or calling 703-746-4774 (opt. 2).
