Facts about Maverick

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Maverick was rescued off of the Garden State Parkway in the Newark area around 2 years ago and is approximately 6 years old. He is a polydactyl kitty, also known as a "Hemingway" cat, because he has extra toes on all of his paws. He can be very shy and nervous in unfamiliar places, but over time he will seek the attention of people and prefers human company. He loves to play with toys and has a lot of energy that will need attention on a regular basis. Sometimes he may play too rough, so an experienced cat owner is recommended to properly handle this behavior. In the right hands, he is very sweet and loves to show affection when he feels safe. However, he has had issues adjusting with other cats and will likely do better in a single pet house hold. He has had limited interaction with a small dog, but did not have a positive response to that either. It is also recommended that his exposure to young children be limited until a trusting bond can be established. While he has some special needs, if placed in the right home, he would make a wonderful and beautiful companion.
