Find your perfect pet with Pet Alert!

Name: Atticus
ID: 43823936
Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 3 years 7 months
Size: Small
Location: Foster
About me: Atticus is more dog than cat, he adores attention and needs physical contact! He is a very active and playful kitty yet he loves to cuddle. He has way too much energy to be held, he needs his freedom to run and play. Although all you have to do is call him and he'll come running!

Skills: Come & Fetch (see more dog than cat)

Dream Home: Someone that works from home!!!!! Atticus would be miserable left alone every day. He needs a home that will provide lots of toys and fun things to do.

Foster Testimonial: Atticus LOVES people. He loves physical contact, when I kneel down and extend my arms, he will come running towards my hands with his tail up. You can feel how happy he is when you give him attention and pets. Once you start petting him and he gets really comfortable, he will give a little "meow" and curl into a ball to tell you how much he loves it!

Medical: Atticus has Feline Upper Respiratory Disease Complex (a chronic cold, he sneezes and has a snooty nose). He is also on medication for life for itchy skin.

Dogs: Atticus has never been around dogs

Cats: Needs to be the only kitty or with another cat that has Feline Upper Repertory Disease Complex.

Kids: He would do best with older kids
