Description:

PRINCE is such a sweet cat! All he wants is a nice, warm, loving forever home to call his own!

Prince is a big grey and white kitty. He has soft white fur and loves to be brushed. He also loves being petted and purrs up a storm 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 very sweet and adores people. It has taken him a long time…but he is now very friendly with all people he meets. Not just his foster mom. Prince needs an adult-only home with no young or active kids now or in the future. An older cat-saavy child would be fine. Prince still hides when he hears loud noises or when there are sudden movements, but quickly comes out when his foster mom tells him all is well. Prince needs a quiet home with a patient caretaker. Once he feels safe, he's your loyal, loving companion.

Prince does well most of the time co-existing with the other cat in his foster home named Fluffy (two photos show Prince and Fluffy together). The only time Prince gets nippy at Fluffy is when they are both on the bed with their foster mom relaxing and watching TV. Prince wants all the love and affection he can get from his foster mom and sometimes chases Fluffy off the bed! They otherwise co-exist nicely – sharing their space, hanging out on cat trees looking out the window etc. So Prince may do fine with another cat who isn't dominant and wants to share space with another cat. But he would be happiest as the only cat where he gets all of the attention!

Prince is a little bit playful when he's in the mood. He will respond to you waving a wand toy on the ground. And his foster mom hears him batting toys around, and he 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!
