Meet Newt

Howdy, I'm Newt! I'm a big fluffy tabby fellow with dapper white patches, a lot like my cousins the Maine Coons only no fancy papers. You can see by my tipped ear badge of courage that I survived living outside on my own.

I'm a sweet gent, though, so I was probably someone's beloved little kitten until I got lost or abandoned along the way. My foster mom says I love head rubs and will come running for them if you snap your fingers!

I really appreciate getting to know you well before being snuggled or picked up, probably because I've had some bad experiences with that along the way. If backed into a corner, I can go into defensive mode, but give me enough space to work it out and I'm your gentle giant.

I'll be a great Social Secretary once I know I'm safe, talking to you as I follow you around. I even got to where I was a lap cat with my foster mom, so graduating to Snuggle Bunny isn't out of the question if you're patient.

I'm a little afraid of men, so the fellows in the house may have to work a little harder to earn my trust, probably because of my bad experiences with them. I will do better in a home without small children or dogs too, as loud noises and lots of activity make me want to hide.

I do like other cats, but can be a bit forward with them, so will do best with other easy-going guys like me. I won't do well with anyone who tends to be aggressive, as that makes me feel like I need to defend myself.

I didn't know what toys were when I first came into the house, so I'll need a gentle introduction to most wand toys so it doesn't look like you're about to hit me with them. I'll also need some training to know where to scratch, like luring me with catnip and telling me when I'm a good boy and scratch where you want.

I'm just looking for a patient, quiet family who will let me get back to that lost little kitten I once was, purring and trying to please. I hope that will be you!

You can adopt me for $90 which includes my vaccinations, neuter, virus testing, microchip, food and litter starter kit and a free well-kitty checkup with one of our partner vets.
