Pete is a friendly, affectionate guy. At 18 years old he is surprisingly spry and acts much younger than his calendar years. Sadly, his owner of 14 years passed away recently, so Pete came to Toronto Cat Rescue.
Even though Pete likes to find unusual sleeping places, he also likes to be in the middle of the action, following his foster person around, and sleeping on the bed at night. He’s very affectionate and loves head butts and being brushed. He has a soft, gentle purr. He’s also quite a character and will have lengthy conversations with his foster -- possibly discussing philosophy, possibly just asking for more food.
Pete has had untreated hyperthyroidism for some time and as a result is very thin. But he’s on medication now (just half a pill, morning and night, which he happily takes) and is finally putting on some weight. And how he loves food! His litter habits are great.
Pete really doesn’t like the kittens in his foster home. He’s tolerates the older cats if they leave him alone. He’d be okay with another calm senior feline, but would also be quite happy having all the love and attention to himself. Pete gets along great with human kids of all ages too - he is very patient. Pete is a fluffy, lovely gentleman who can't wait to part of your family.
Thank you for welcoming a senior cat into your family - an adoption fee of your choice is appreciated versus our standard adoption fee of $175.
