Hello, and thank you for looking at my profile.
A few updates about me since I first came to SCARS.
I was adopted out, however, got returned. Due to being unwell from the infection in my tail and being on medication for that, my foster mom probably didn’t get to experience the full range of my personality…but my adoptive family did. Turns out I am a high energy guy and I got into trouble with some destructive clawing.
I was pretty high energy when I first came to my new foster mom’s house. However, she helped me out with directing my energy into playing with toys and scratching on scratch posts. So that has helped to mellow me out a bit. Also, there is this amazing thing at my foster home called a cat tree, which I love sleeping on top of.
Also, foster mom noticed I walk a little weird. I walk like a little bear and hop like a bunny when I run. I went and got checked by the vet. There is a bit of an abnormality in one of my lower vertebrae. We don’t know if this is from an old injury, or being a Manx, if it’s just how my spine grew.
I am sensitive to people touching my lower back and will sometime bite if I think it’s too much. So a home with younger kids is probably not the best fit for me.
Foster mom tried me on pain meds, but my functioning wasn’t much different on meds and off meds. At this point I seem to be doing fine without any pain management, however, when I’m older I may need some pain medication to help keep me comfortable.
I am a sometimes cuddly cat…in that I may choose to lay by you or hop up on your lap to see you. However, this has to be on my own terms. If you try and pick me up or pet me when I’m not expecting it I may bite. So I’m very much a kitty who appreciates his own space but will appreciate your affection when I ask for it.
I’m at bit overweight right now. Foster mom is helping me with some portion control so I can lose some weight. That will probably help my back as well.
I also have a bit of a funny haircut right now, as with being a bit overweight and having a sore back I was having some trouble grooming myself. So foster mom helped me out and shaved down my fur a bit to help me be more comfortable.
If you would like to know more about me or would like to meet me then feel free to fill out an application. Even if it turns out I wouldn’t be a good fit for your family there are lots of other SCARS cats so there should be one who is purrrrfect for your family.
