Hi there, my name is Boyd! My foster mom says that I am basically the perfect cat. Thats a bold claim, sure, but please come meet me and be the judge!

First off, the basics: I am a 5-year-old black domestic shorthair kitty with a tiny patch of white on my chest. I used to have a family and an indoor home, but one day they moved away and left me alone outside to fend for myself. It was very scary and lonely. Next to my former home, there was a small park with an old gazebo where I took shelter. I stayed there, day and night, for weeks. I was hoping maybe my family would come back for me, but they never did. Some neighbors put out food and water for the feral cats and they let me share. When Operation Press Paws was notified about me, a volunteer came out, scooped me right up, and brought me to the vet for a check-up. It was a very stormy fall day and everything was cold and wet, so I was relieved to come inside!

Now I have a nice safe foster home while I wait for my forever family to find me. Being a house cat for most of my life, I took to it right away, as if the last few weeks never happened. However, I remember how it felt to be lonely and hungry and cold! And you can tell, because Im such a grateful and sweet kitty. Although I have a distinguished and serious look to me, my personality is very friendly, calm, and gentle. Im super low-key, never demanding. I absolutely love to be petted if youre willing, though! I can be a little shy when first meeting new people, but I warm up very quickly. I will purr and purr if you give me love! My favorite thing besides receiving love and pets is a nice soft, warm bed to nap in. And food is pretty great, too! So far I havent shown much interest in playing with toys, but you never know, I might just surprise you. Either way, Im out of the crazy kitten stage, so Im very well-mannered and not destructive.

Unsurprisingly given my chill personality, I have great social skills with other cats. In fact, my kitty foster  sister is pretty dramatic and she often hisses or growls at me when we cross paths. But I just give her space and dont let it bother me at all. 

My history with dogs is unknown. OPP will consider a home with dog friends if the adopter is committed to a slow and monitored introduction process to ensure that we do well together.

I always use my litterbox. I will come to my new family neutered, vaccinated, combo tested negative, and dewormed. 

My special needs: I eat a special diet and take a daily pill  and one daily supplement to keep my allergies at bay. I take my meds with zero fuss like the very good boy I am! Ask Operation Press Paws about adopting me today!
