Description:
THIS KITTY (Foster-Gloucester) IN A NUTSHELL
Is he a lapcat? ABSOLUTELY - WHEN HE WANTS YOUR LAP, HE"LL MARCH RIGHT IN
Does he like butting heads with a person? YES!
Does he like sleeping with a person? YES - NOTHING FANCY - USUALLY A POLITE ACCOMPANIMENT BY YOUR SIDE OR LEGS; SOMETIMES UP AGAINST YOUR FACE
Does he like belly rubs? YES; HE HAS A BEAUTIFUL FLUFFY WHITE BELLY
Does he like being hugged/held/carried? YES - HE LIKES BEING HUGGED PARTICULARLY
Funniest thing he does? HE DROOLS WHEN HE PURRS HARD, AND HE PURRS HARD WHEN YOU HOLD HIM OR WHEN HE SITS IN YOUR LAP; VERY PASSIONATE PURR
Most annoying thing he does? HE KNOWS HOW TO GET YOU OUTOF BED, AND HE STARTS TRYING AROUND DAWN
Concerns? BULLIED TO THE POINT OF BLOODIED BY SOME CATS, BUT ANNOYINGLY STALKY (THOUGH NOT VIOLENT) WITH OTHER, MORE SUBMISSIVE CATS

  Foster-Gloucester is about two years of age. Hes long, lean, and I think hes achingly beautiful. He loves being held and hugged and is a ridiculous purrer - he purrs almost no matter what. He likes to lick your nose to show affection and to gently gnaw your toes to show hes hungry (he is pretty good at aiming his teeth so that they actually miss your flesh, but it still can be annoying if you are trying to sleep). Hes a strong head-bonker and he works his paws in and out in "air-kneading" fashion when he is happy that you are talking to him and/or petting him. He loves to climb trustingly into your lap or onto your chest to sleep on you in bed at night - sooo companionable. Hes gentle with other kitties, his own age or younger or older, and on the whole hes a gentle, rather emotionally fragile, perhaps slightly dim kitty. The drawback with Foster-Gloucester is that he is a drama queen and not great at adapting to new circumstances. Hes a pretty rotten traveler (hell yowl in the car) and if you leave him with a sitter, youll come back to find he wedged himself into the kitchen sink cabinet to hide the whole time you were away. (If youre THERE in the house and have a technician over to fix something, hell crouch terrified on a curtain rod until the strange person goes.) He can be demanding, and hes got a yodel hell use at what seems to you like the drop of a hat. But since hes so affectionate and good at bonding with his person, you will tend to find his insecurity endearing rather than not. But expect him to need some time to adjust to new surroundings and to need lots of reassurances in the form of pets and head-butts (purrrrr!). We will update his listing if he gets adopted, so if you are seeing this, he has yet to find his purrson and permanent home!


If interested in adoption, please send in your answers to the questions below and well get back to you promptly if we feel you and the kitten would make a great match. 
Thank you so much for your time and your interest!


1.   What are your views, pro or con, on declawing?


2.  What are your views, pro or con, on neutering/spaying?


3.   Under what circumstances would you consider parting with a kitty youd adopted? (We are 100% no-kill and would want to take back, at any time and for any reason, anyone you adopted from us if you wanted to part company with him or her.)


4.  Can you share your views about feline nutrition and diet, as follows? Would you consider feeding this kitty dry food? If so, what brands and if not, why not? Would you consider feeding this kitty canned food? If so, what brands and if not, why not? Would you consider feeding this kitty raw food (either bought from a store or homemade) and if not, why not? Also, what kind of water would you offer this kitty and what brand of litter would you use in your litterbox? Thanks!


 5. What sort of domicile do you live in (house, rented apartment, trailer, etc.) and who (please mention any and all humans and non-humans) lives there with you, please?


6. It can be very helpful, in determining whether Kitty and Human would make a good match, to have some information about the person, so if you could say something about your interests/hobbies/lifestyle/leisure pursuits, that would be great. Please also give a little information about your job/profession/source of income. Lastly, if theres anything you want to say about volunteer work youve done caregiving to non-humans (say, at a shelter or sanctuary) or about previous experiences you have had caring for your own or for others (say, as a cat-sitter or dog-walker), thats helpful too!


7. Finally [Optional], if there is anything about this particular kittys looks as shown in the photos/video or personality as written about in the post that particularly calls to you or speaks to you or appeals to you, please could you share that? 

Thank you so much!
