Snowy is a shy, lovable senior who is looking for a quiet home to enjoy his golden years. He is a gentle cutie with lots of energy who loves to play with his Cat Dancer toy, be brushed and lounge in his cat house. Though he won't sit on your lap, he enjoys being picked up and cuddled once he gets to know you and will sit next to you on the couch with some encouragement. Snowy has also been known to give his favourite humans a loving lick on the face after a good cuddle!
Snowy is bonded with his brother, Champ, and they must be adopted together. The boys are quite independent and tend to do their own thing, but they do love to groom other, which is very cute to watch.
Snowy is a bit of a shy guy and will take time to warm up to new people. He does have some “catitude”, however, and will sometimes let you know when he wants something by banging his paw on a door or other object and trilling his cute croaky meow.
Snowy, like his brother Champ, has recently been diagnosed with early stage kidney disease. He is currently eating kidney-friendly wet cat food but is not on any medication or prescription foods.
Snowy's litter box habits can be negatively affected by stress and separation anxiety, so all efforts should be made to keep his litter box clean and frequently emptied. An owner who is retired or works from home would be ideal for Snowy.
Snowy is a handsome, loving cat who needs a special adopter to make him feel comfortable and secure. Your effort will be rewarded with loyalty and lots of love.
Thank you for giving two best friends a loving forever home together and 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.
