BOOTS is a gorgeous long-haired, male tuxedo cat about 12 years old with the most adorable white mustache and spot on his nose. He is DECLAWED on his front paws and so needs to be an indoor-only fellow (which he has been his whole life). He is a gentle and well-behaved guy with a soft purr until he has something to say and can then be quite a talker. His lifelong owner transitioned to a nursing home and Boots was left behind. His sadness at the sudden loss of all he knew took him several weeks to acclimate to his new foster home. Boots likes to follow you around and be right next to you to supervise but doesn’t care to be touched too much. He is a good eater when he knows you are near. He's a funny guy with bursts of energy, running around like a spry young cat for 10-15 minutes. He can become very anxious when being picked up. Learning to respect his boundaries with patience and kindness will reward you with his trust and love. He’s good at communicating and will sleep by your feet. His favorite toy is a peacock feather - but just the pointy end! Boots needs to be an only cat and in a home without young kids. He will make a wonderful kitty for a quiet person or couple looking for a delightful and loving companion. As he becomes more comfortable in his new home, his behavior becomes more trusting. He has been tested for feline leukemia and FIV (he is negative), neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, defleaed and dewormed, plus you get a free wellness exam. Boots' adoption fee is $60. He is currently in foster care. For more information please call 541-225-4955 option 1 or send an email to adoptinfo@CatRescues.org. ID# 1609-C0518R.
