Scarlet has his claws and is neutered but needs his shots. He has a chronic problem with soft stool, diarrhea and eye discharge. He is currently being treated by a vet for both issues.
Scarlet was one of the first cats I rescued – he’s been in my household since August 2009. Unfortunately, our family is experiencing a terminal illness and I cannot care for Scarlet or his housemates any longer or give them the attention they need and deserve. Giving them up is breaking my heart but it is best for all of them.
Scarlet is a very gentle, loving cat who has nurtured every kitten I have taken in from day one. The kittens gravitate to him for warmth and comfort. Scarlet grooms them and cuddles with them. His favorite activity is sitting on your lap and being petted. He craves attention. He is also a ferocious chaser of lasers and will spin in circles to catch it. He does not like dogs and is shy with people at first. But once he figures out you'll pet him, he warms up quickly.
He gets along with adults and children. He will fight with other male cats if provoked but generally does not instigate fights himself. I believe he can adapt to a home with other male cats as long as those cats are not aggressive, females are fine. Scarlet deserves a loving home with people who can spend quality time with him.
