Meet Ernie

Ernie is a 1 year old, dappled black & white cat with a comical face and a big, joyful personality. He loves to play fetch and spend time with his human. His loud meow will signal to you when he needs more play or affection. Ernie was rescued as a very thin, frail kitten. His days of mistreatment ended, and he was bottle-fed and nurtured back to vibrant health. Ernie is bright and full of fun, but he was left with delicate joints, especially his elbow and hip. He recently had hip surgery due to severe arthritis so he can be mobile again. He runs, jumps, and plays endless games of fetch, but he would thrive best in a home where possibility of additional trauma is limited. The vet has recommended a one-story home would be best. Ernie enjoys dogs and other cats, and he even befriended a curious squirrel in his foster home. In his forever home, a gentle feline playmate buddy would be ideal. He craves a lot of attention from human or animal playmates, but large dogs and rough play would not be best match. This one year old quirky dynamo is looking for a home where he will add fun and affection. An adopter who works from home regularly would ideal as Ernie will be your shadow and probably your assistant.
