Thank you for stopping to look at my picture. I am about 3 yrs old. I lived outside at one time and now I enjoy the catio at my fosters house, Do you have a cat, or can we play inside? I like wand toys and some crunchy treats. I was recently neutered and not too good with same age or older males, but I do like the females. I would like a home with a patient family who will allow me to chase sky raisins (flies) and play. I think I might even like to have a kitty companion, but be warned I like to be an instigator of disagreements. I am not fond of children and have been known to scratch. I am pretty independent and you may find me sleeping in the middle of your bed during the day or laying by a window, but at night I like to patrol. I enjoy wet cat food and a human treat on a very special occasion.

Words to Describe Me: patient, kind, curious

Favorite Place to Sleep: under the bed or in the middle of the bed during the day

Favorite Toy: A wand toy with rabbits foot on it

Perfect Day: Lounging in the sun, eating food 5x a day and playing
