From the Foster:
Hi! My name is Tony/Moses, my foster mom usually calls me Moe or Mose. I live with my brother Samson and I don't want to be separated from him, so we would really love a home that would take us both!
I was pretty freaked out when I first came to my foster mom's house. I encountered these big 4 legged creatures that I had never seen before. They can be very loud. Foster Mom calls them "dogs" and she keeps telling me that they won't hurt me, but I don't know if I believe that yet.
Eventually my curiosity got the best of me and I decided I needed to explore my new house and get to know my foster mom. I'm pretty sure that was a good decision, because now I get a lot of attention from my foster mom. She pets me all the time and talks to me a lot. I really like to be scratched behind my ears and Foster Mom always obliges me. I really like soft treats, that's how Foster Mom started to convince me that exploration was a good thing. I'm not too interested in toys but there is this feather on a string that I sometimes will play with if my foster mom catches me in the mood.
I'm more of a bystander; I like to sit up on a perch and watch what is going on. Although I do like to walk between human legs and brush up against them, making sure to mark my scent on as many things as possible. I'm working on being more social, but I still have some more work to do. Are you willing to work with me? I'd love to show you how awesome of a friend I can be :)
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.
