Tucker was a stray cat in Hudson, Iowa. A kind couple trapped him and Waverly Pet Rescue took him in back in August 2019. He is living in a foster home. Tucker is now up to date on shots, tested FeLV / FIV negative, and neutered.
Tucker is about 1-1/2 years old as of August 2020. We got him when he was about 6-months old. He was very skittish and I really thought he might end up going to a farm. But after about 9-months, Tucker started becoming quite friendly. Now after a year in his foster home, he is very friendly to his foster mom. Tuckers loves to be petted. He will seek you out to be petted. His favorite time of the day is when it is time to eat. He will follow you all over the place and take a few bites of food out of each bowl. He is still scared in new situations, and if there is a loud noise or something he is unsure about, he will still run and hide under something. He will then slowly peak his head out to make sure it is safe, and them come back out. Tucker is really good about letting me pick him up and carry him. This did take a whole year to let him be comfortable with this. Even a few months ago, he would get panicked and try to bolt away.
Tucker does awesome with every other foster cat he has ever met. He gets along very well with them. I think having other friendly cats around is best for him. So he will need to be adopted with one of his cat friends or into a home already with a friendly cat. Tucker cannot be an only cat. He is friends with Scotland, Magnus, and Piper.
If you adopt Tucker, he must be set up alone in a room for at least a couple of weeks. Maybe even longer. He will need time to settle in and adjust to a new place. Would be great if you have skittish/shy cat experience so you already know how they progress in a new home. It takes lots of time, love, patience, and kindness, and again...Time.
Tucker's adoption fee is $95.00.

All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $250 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
