Mooney needs to be adopted as a single cat.
Mooney is full of life, in large part because hes already had quite a life. This adorable gray cat is a refugee from Afghanistan and endured a weeks-long trip to get to the United States, including a two-week layover in Vancouver.
Mooney was a little shell-shocked when he arrived at his fosters home, but he became acclimated to his new surroundings within a couple weeks. He is very vocal, letting you know when its time to feed and pet him.
Mooney has been living in the family room and perks up whenever visitors come to see him. When his foster is done with work for the night, she heads to the family room and Mooney shepherds her to the love seat, often taking her spot before she gets a chance to sit down. Once he gives her room to sit, he climbs into her lap and demands that she pet him. Hes an instant purr machine and loves attention, but hes still a bit wary of being picked up. For the moment, the foster family plays by his rules and lets him know he is loved.
Mooney also can be aggressive with other cats his size, so he may be more suited for a single-cat home. However, he truly enjoys the attention he receives from people.
Mooney is perfectly litter box trained and has a hearty appetite. He begins to meow the moment he hears the sound of cat food cans opening.
Given his hectic recent few months, Mooney will need time to become comfortable in his new surroundings. However, he will be forever grateful to you once he adjusts.
Mooneys estimated birthdate is April 2018. He is neutered, current on his vaccines, and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia. He has also been microchipped.
