About Me


My foster mom tells me I’m the sweetest boy she knows. She also frequently tells me I’m a very silly boy. I like to run around and pounce on things, but I’m not very graceful. I love boxes, tunnels, and anything else I can dive into. I have LOTS of energy! I also have a lot to say and like you to know where I am at all times, so I chirp and meow constantly. I like to be held and petted too. Cheek scratches are the best!

Hobbies: playing in boxes and tunnels, being petted
Favorite Toy: all toys – especially ones I can hide in!
Favorite Napping Spot: on the window seat


I think I had a family once, but was living outside at an apartment complex when a TNR volunteer discovered how sweet and friendly I am. She took me home and discovered I have perfect indoor cat manners and love being pampered indoors.


Change is hard for me, so I need a family that is patient and will give me lots of time to adjust to a new home. My anxiety will get the better of me for a while and I’ll cry a lot. But I’ll be so happy to have a forever home and gets lots of cuddles and pets. I’d like having a cat friend to play chase with too. It might help me feel less anxious.
