Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair
Coat length:
Lance was a street cat.  He grew large and strong all on his own.  He was captured and put into a cage at a rural animal control facility and there he waited to learn his fate.  He had no one to claim him and save his life. 

MCCA reached out to rescues for him, and looking into his sad eyes we knew we had to get him. 

Lance had some trouble adjusting to living the indoor life.  He was sad, mad, confused and defensive.  His foster parents were very patient and cautious with him and were slowly, daily, seeing changes in him.  He obviously wanted very badly to trust but his defensive nature was in the way. 

Long story short, Lance is now a loving, playful, beautiful cat.  He longs for human attention and interaction.  He likes to rub against humans, furniture, corners , etc and really really likes being pet and getting his hair brushed .  However, he can get overstimulated sometimes and can swat or grab which is why we think he should be in a home with adults and possibly older teenage children.  

He uses a scratching post well, but we are still learning manners such as staying off counters . Disclaimer -that may be a losing battle.  He is extremely smart and wants to please.  He loves toys, a lot ! 

Lance lives with a Great Pyrenees and isn’t intimidated by him, but learned quickly to not eat the dog food ! He seems to want to play with other cats but just gets too excited so he may be best as an only kitty.  

Lance is neutered, microchipped, tested negative for FIV and FeLV and is current on vaccinations .  He will be a wonderful addition to a home with a patient and loving person!
