Meet Fred

Hello. I'm Fred, and I'm about five years old. I'm an affectionate, loving boy. When you start petting me, I'll make muffins and roll over for belly rubs. My foster mama says she's never seen a cat that loves belly rubs like I do! I lead a tough life outside for a really long time, but then I was rescued when something attacked me and I got really sick. As a result, I can be a little standoffish with new people at first. It's a rough world out there, so can you blame me? But all you have to do is pet me and my purr motor will start right up! I am a bit more of an observer than an in-your-face sort of fellow, but if I see you coming, I'll start tapping my paws and get really excited for attention! And my mama says I'm a hoot when I eat because I make funny head motions when I'm trying to chomp my food down. Also, my injury is all healed up, but sometimes I walk a little funny and make my foster mama laugh! I'm also quite deaf, but if you stomp on the floor, I will feel the vibrations and know you are coming. All in all, I'm quite the character.

My foster mama says I'm a very special kitty who has been through a lot, but that doesn't stop me from desperately wanting attention and love. I will be so happy with a loving forever family! I would do best with patient people in a quiet, mellow home. I can adjust to a calm kitty friend; in fact I was a proud foster dad to two little orphan kittens! I will miss them, but they are grown up now and will be great on their own. I've met a dog or two, but they are scary! I don't think I'm ready to let a dog friend into my life!

Please consider adopting me! I want a home to call my own. It might take me a week or so to settle in, but I promise I am very sweet and absolutely love to be petted and get belly rubs. Did I mention how much I love belly rubs? If you'd love to rescue a special fellow like me, apply today!
