About Me

Tony was adopted May 2024!

I am a former street cat with handsome stripes and adorable white toe socks! I know what I want – a warm, safe place to nap and lots and lots of treats. I have a tiny squeaky meow, and won’t wake you up in the morning or cause a ruckus in the middle of the night.

I am still learning about living indoors with people and sometimes get scared and need some time to myself. I have excellent litterbox habits but don’t always know how to communicate with people and might swat if I get scared or frustrated. That can scare kids.

Tony has FIV, which is manageable and not contagious to humans or other species. Cats with FIV can live fully healthy lives if they are cared for properly. (It does not spread among spayed animals and is not the same as FeLV.)

Likes: treats, scritches, and being brushed
Dislikes: hands and wand toys are scary
Hobbies: bird watching, napping
Favorite Toy: treat puzzle games and toy mice and balls to pounce on
Favorite Treats: Churus
Favorite napping spot: heated cat mats and a cat sill in the window

I spent years living outside in a cat colony until a caretaker noticed I was having trouble eating and brought me inside. I was very nervous about people and indoor life at first and had a mouth full of broken and infected teeth. After getting my teeth pulled and realizing that it is dry and warm in the house, I am ready to retire to a life of indoor luxury.

I would like a quiet, gentle family with prior cat experience who will give me time to adjust to a new living situation.
