Facts about Monster

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Monster was turned into a local high kill shelter with no explanation of why he was being surrendered. He was stuffed into a small carrier with another adult cat and left outside the shelters doors. The other cat was euthanized before Purrs and Wags could save it. Monster was terrified at the shelter and we saved him just in time. He was on the list for that day when one of our volunteers saw him and saved his life.

Despite his name, Monster has a very loving personality. He loves to be petted and brushed. He is playful and mischievous. He will wait for your toes under the bed and pounce on them (soft paws only, never uses claws). He loves to chase the laser light. He is in a foster home with other cats and a small dog and has no real problems with them. But Monster's ideal home would be one where he is the only male cat. He has an alpha personality. He is FIV/FeLv negative. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. Monster is microchipped.

About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or injured. When they are ready we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
