You need a country boy in your life, so do come fishin’ for me! I was found as a stray cat by the beach, definitely not in the mood to catch some waves. So, I yeehawed my way to the MSCPCA in search of the simple life. I’m 2 years old and more than ready to make your acquaintance!
I have quite the paws-on purrsonality. I will run right up to you and rub up against your legs (I can sometimes be a tripping hazard so be careful!). I’ll also jump into your lap and give you lots of rubs while you pet me. I can be a little playfully bitey at times, so I’ll do best in an adults-only home with a family who doesn’t mind all this fun!
I came in with a tail-pull injury, which is either caused by getting stuck under something and having to drag myself out, or from being picked up by the tail. This caused it to become paralyzed. The injury also left me with fecal incontinence sometimes. My tail, which was paralyzed and no use to me anyway, was amputated and allowed me to clean myself more easily. I’m on a special diet that the medical team can start you off with. Wearing a diaper is something to the staff is looking into I know that’s a lot to ask for my future family, so I’m waiting for that special someone out there to take home a special cat!
I get along well with other friendly, mellow cats, so I’m happy to share my next home with one. Until my new family comes to get me, don’t mind me sitting here while I’m dreamin’ out loud for you!
Another reason I’m lucky to be at the Monmouth County SPCA because they adopt out lots of FIV+ kitties, and many shelters unfortunately euthanize them.
FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) means when exposed to kitty germs, FIV+ cats are more susceptible to catching something than a cat without. With limited resources to care for so many animals (sick or otherwise), many shelters have no choice but to euthanize those likeliest to get sick, and FIV+ cats are always at the top of the list.
Studies have shown FIV+ kitties can live just as happy, healthy and long of a life as a cat without FIV. A positive FIV status becomes a problem with outdoor cats that must fend for themselves and fight over limited resources. When an FIV+ kitty is kept indoors, fed good food, given lots of love, and taken for regular vet visits, their lifespan and quality of life can be the same as a cat without FIV.
We only do adoptions in person (please bring all family members).
We will ask you to fill out an Adoption Survey and speak with an Adoption Counselor to help find your perfect match!
Without an appointment, you might not be able to meet with the animals.
Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment, so finding the right match is very important.
Finding the perfect pet takes time. The process usually takes at least an hour, so please plan accordingly. All adoption paperwork must be submitted to the front desk one hour before closing.
Adopters are encouraged to bring their own carrier or leash and collar.
