Monkey is a big, beautiful, 4 year old, tabby male. He was surrendered to the Guelph Humane Society when his owner's newborn baby developed serious allergies. Unfortunately Monkey was very unhappy in the shelter environment as he did not get the affection he craved and he was taken intro foster care through GRAB.
Monkey is tall and lean with a long, thin tail and amazingly gorgeous, striped toes. He enjoys a game of fetch or “birdie-on-a-string”, but his favourite thing is lots and lots of cuddles. Monkey needs a lot of attention or he gets frustrated – he hates knowing something is going on in a part of the house he can't get to so he needs a home where he will have full access to the whole house.
Monkey is healthy and has been fully vetted. His teeth have a bit of plaque, but not unusual for his age. His fur was a bit dry upon arrival but a new diet of healthier food and an occasional brushing has already made a difference. He loves his toy mousey and plastic spring. He is a chatty boy and will happily carry on a conversation with you. His meow has a beautiful “puurrrupp” quality.
Monkey gets along very well with the house dog, but not with the house cat. He would do best in a home with a confident, but polite dog, or no other pets, and a family with lots of love to give. Monkey's foster home has updated us that he seems to be frightened of young, busy children, so a home with no kids, or with older, calmer kids may be best!
