Description:

URGENT: This sweet but shy boy needs a new foster home before 7/23/2021. He's a good candidate to foster with the potential to adopt if things work out.

PRINCE is a sweet boy. All he wants is a nice, warm, loving forever home to call his own. He will need a little time to adapt to a new home, but once he does, Prince will be your loyal companion and king of his castle.

Prince is a big grey and white kitty with very soft fur. He LOVES to be brushed and petted. He purrs up a storm when you brush or pet him or when he sees you, when he's sitting or lying next to you and just about any time he's happy and feels loved. Be prepared for a LOUD purr motor! Prince is also very talkative and responds when you with a cute meow when you call him or talk to him.

Prince is very sweet and adores people. It has taken him a long time to come out of his shell…but he is now very friendly with all gentle people he meets. Not just his foster mom. Prince will hide from loud noises or with sudden movements until he's settled into a new place, but he quickly comes out once his foster mom tells him its safe. Note: Prince needs an adult-only home with a patient and experienced cat caretaker. He will do best with just one person in his home and has only been exposed to women. He will do best with an older person whose life is settled with no frequent moves or young children now or in the future.

Prince will do best as the only cat in your home. He co-existed with another friendly, low-key cat in a previous foster home but made it clear he preferred to be the center of your attention. He could co-exist with another low-key cat, as long as the cat was independent and didn't want much attention from you. Prince is a little playful when he's in the mood. He LOVES the laser pointer and doesn't seem to get annoyed that he can't actually catch the dot. Prince needs some dedicated playtime each day to keep him active. He also sometimes responds to you waving a wand toy on the ground and likes to kick a catnip filled toy with his back paws.

Prince came into our care after we were contacted by a kind woman who had been feeding him outdoors. She had seen Prince hanging around outside her ground-level apartment and discovered, after talking with neighbors, that Prince use to live in her apartment and was abandoned when the previous tenant moved. Hard to believe a person would be so cruel to just leave this sweet cat outdoors to fend for himself!
