4 year old, handsome gent, Salem has had quite the adventure and he would like to now find a quiet, calm Forever Home. Salem is a miracle cat who survived a brutal coyote attack. Good Samaritans came to his rescue and he was able to be saved after intense veterinary care. Confident and friendly with people of all ages, Salem would need to be the only pet in the house. Salem did come up against a neighbor cat of the foster family and he backed away rather than engage in a fight. So, we believe Salem would be better having his own Forever Home where he can always be the king and not have to submit to any other animals. Dogs, of course, remind Salem of coyotes, and so he gets a fright from them. Salem lets you put him in the sink and bathe him as long as it's fast. And he will allow you to towel dry him. He is a Big boy likes to eat... he weighs about 16.5 pounds. He has very deep shiny supple fur on his chest and head. Salem will roll on his back and let's his fosters pet and scratch his soft under belly and he will seek attention. He likes to be petted and laps from people easily. He likes all people and is not afraid or shy. He does not meow hardly ever and he is a very strong cat. He does know his name well and comes easily when called. After his life threatening experience, we'd like for him to keep his name to maintain consistency. This awesome guy will also will trip you as you carry a food bowl to a location, but all you have to do is tell him "Salem lead the way.." And he runs ahead. Salem enjoys calming treats and he will easily let's you trim his claws... unbelievable! Salem the coyote survivor is hoping to find his Forever Home soon! Adoption donation: $150
