From the Foster:
Hi! My name is Tony/Moses, but my Foster Mom usually calls me Mose or Moe. I live with my brother Samson and we are good buds so we would like to find a wonderful home together.
I'm a big guy that likes to observe my surroundings until I feel ready to jump in and participate. I really like to sit atop high places to watch from the best vantage point and fortunately Foster Mom has a lot of bookcases that work well for that. I do really like attention when I feel comfortable so any time Foster Mom sits down I jump into her lap immediately. I require to be pet and scratched with both hands when I'm in her lap. I also like to walk in between her legs and make sure that my scent is on as many things as possible. I'm more of a laid back kind of cat, so I'm not all that interested in toys, although Foster Mom has caught me in a playful mood a few times and gotten me to bat a ball around or chase a feather on a string. I do like catnip, so toys infused with that are more likely to catch my attention.
I'm still not so sure about these other 4 legged creatures that are in the house - Foster Mom calls them dogs. They can be very loud sometimes, but I'm generally used to that now. I like to sit at the bottom of the stairs and watch them in the kitchen. I frequently have staring contests with one of them, and I usually win. I'm ok being in the same house as these dog things, but it's good to have a place that they can't get to, so if my next home already has a dog it would be good if Samson & I had our own space.
I'm a really great cat and would love a fur-ever home for my brother and I. Do you have some extra love and time to give us? You won't be sorry!
All cats are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.

If you live in MN, WI, IA, SD, ND, or IL and would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/adoption-information/ and the foster(s) will be in touch!
Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
