No. 39 Stripey is a neutered, approximately 4-year-old, blue and gray tiger male domestic short hair mix weighing a little more than 9 pounds. Stripey is a looker with a heart of gold. He can be a bit shy at first, but a few chin rubs quickly changes all that. If you listen closely, he has a sweet, soft purr. His owners brought him to the Puunene Shelter on March 7 when pets were no longer allowed at their residence. If you are looking for a handsome blue boy, Stripey is so cool you're sure to fall for him too!
