I wish Liam’s story wasn’t so common. Liam had a home for a couple years. He lived indoor /outdoor in a residential neighborhood that didn’t like free-roaming cats. So, when his human moved and left him behind, the neighbors weren’t happy. They chased him away. A good Samaritan took him to the shelter, but they were going to euthanize him, so he ended up at Cat Tales Rescue. The foster home has cats who don’t like “guests” so he is living in a spare bedroom and he is LONELY! Desperate for attention, he waits at the door and cries from time to time.
Liam is an easy cat to have around and you will win him over quickly with canned food. He has perfect litterbox manners and uses a cat scratching post. Three years old, he is neutered, up to date on vaccines and viral negative. He will be microchipped before placement in his new home. Because kids used to chase / harass him in his old neighborhood, we think he’d do best with adults. Older, gentle kids might be okay. If a loud sound spooks him or you are too rough with him, he will get scared and swat defensively. This is a reaction to his mistreatment and he rebounds quickly if you reassure him that everything is okay. He learned this behavior and it helped him survive, so it will take a while for him to completely trust that you aren’t going to hurt him.
Liam loves attention, but is also a great mouser. He’d do well in a situation where he was both a pet and had a job to keep rodents away.
