Skidder's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.

Skidder's Story...
Skidder's owner has moved and he's no longer safe at her home. He prefers indoor/outdoor, likes to explore, sticks around.
Here's some notes from his owner.
He is a Manx, so has a different personality more like a dog than a cat. I am sure you know, but the girls and I wanted to share some of his traits with you.
He travels in a carrier, he actually enjoys it.
He is scared of dogs and even though he has tolerated them he would probably adjust better at a home without dogs,
He likes it out-doors but is not road wise and doesn't really hunt, would do well as an in-door/out-door cat,
He likes a clean litter box (who wouldn't) and he prefers one for urine and one for poo and having 2 litter boxes is the best way to prevent him from using it else where,
He is fixed,
He is kid and cat friendly,
He is a love, likes to snuggle,
kneads you with his big sharp claws and will paw or bite for attention when he is in a snuggle mood, so maybe not the best for elderly or those who would be injured by his claws,
He likes to chew like a puppy on wood or plastic and sometimes will chew on cords and such if he feels neglected.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skidder, a Monterey Manx cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Manx for sale in Monterey, or seeking a Manx cat from a breeder in Monterey.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monterey already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Monterey breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Manx breeders who help with Manx rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monterey paves the way for another one to be saved.
