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 serious aggression issues. Luckily, Zoe’s is super patient and they helped me realize that I have been using aggression to communicate with my family about my needs. My new hoomans have been working to show me (through positive reinforcement) that there are better ways to communicate such as meowing, gentle nibbles, pawing (without claws) and head butts. Sometimes, If my hoomans ignore my first attempt at communication, I’ll lash out (like attacking foster mama’s when she should be feeding me instead of watching TV), but these attacks are getting further apart. My medication has really helped me stop being so easily triggered.

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.
