Critter Twitter:

I’m a very loving boy who is looking for a family that will give me lots of attention. I can be found napping close by, popping over to your desk for pets, and snuggling up to your face for morning cuddles. I also love to be held and often if I’m meowing I just want to be picked up and loved. You can probably hear me purring from here. #loveme

About my Behaviour:

When I came into Zoe’s care I had some issues with aggression. Luckily, Zoe’s is super patient and they helped me realize that I have been using teeth and claws to communicate my needs. My new hoomans have shown me (through positive reinforcement) that there are better ways to communicate such as meowing, intense staring, gentle nibbles, pawing (without claws) and head butts. Sometimes, If my hoomans ignore my first attempts at communication, I might bite a toe to try and drag foster mum to feed me or jump up a leg to try and get foster dad to play. But a calm stable home that pays attention to my needs plus my medication has all helped me stop being so easily triggered. The vast majority of the time I’m a sweet cuddly boy who loves being the center of attention.

How’s my Health?

I am fully vetted. I had some dental pain when I came into Zoe’s care, but some dental surgery fixed that right up. But as a result, I only eat wet food and soft treats. I’m also on a dose of gabapentin (twice a day) to help with anxiety. It is inexpensive and doesn't cost much a month at all (80% less than a cup of coffee a day).
