I'm Winston (aka Winnie) and I am the cat's meow just look at how handsome I am! I might be a bit timid at first, but once I learn to trust you we'll be the best of pals. I love running water - faucets, showers, bathtubs - you name it, I'll come running when I hear water running somewhere, something about it! I let you know when I'm happy, want a belly rub and when I need some time to myself - my tail speaks for me. I'll teach you how to read my tail if you give me a chance. I like to play with feather wands, string toys or really anything that rolls on the floor and I'm also learning that fingers aren't toys - my Foster Mom has been a very good teacher! I will love you with cuddles and even asked to be held at times. I've had foster kitty companions and with time and patience, I got along great with them. I do better with nice non-dominant kitties though. I had a small doggie companion in my former home, so if you have a sweet doggie that likes kitties, I should be fine with him/her too. I startle easy - I don't do well with loud noises (vacuum cleaner, blow dryer and sometime a washer or dryer) not sure why - so if you don't mind protecting me from these things, I will show you my deepest love and appreciation by talking to you - I love to talk, I've been told that I have a cute little "meow" for such a big guy like me - I guess that makes me even cuter, don't you think?
If you can't adopt me right now, perhaps you will consider being my temporary Foster Family? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how you can become my Foster - that would make me very happy too. Thank you for your interest!
