Paul (on the left) is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for FELV/FIV, litter box trained and approx. 5 years old. He should be good with kids because he is affectionate and playful and he is fine with cats, especially Peter who is his bonded friend. We're not sure if Paul is ok with dogs - he hasn't been exposed to any dogs since he's been with us.
Paul is a playful cat and is happy to play all by himself and throw his toys up in the air, stalk them and bat them around the room. He will make you laugh! He likes to be petted and brushed, and is what we would consider a medium-sized cat.
Paul and his best friend Peter must be adopted together. They are never too far away from one another and are always bumping heads and running up to one another for reassurance. They are also good friends with Patrick, but Patrick is more independent even though he will snuggle and sleep with Paul and Peter, both together or individually.
Paul, Peter, and Patrick were once indoor cats but became homeless after their Dad passed away and the house was sold. All three boys lived outdoors for a year and a half. Even though they had shelter and were fed we were concerned about their safety and health because NJ's winter of 2016 was very bitter, especially in February.
The time came when we were able to foster these three buddies, but they really deserve a better environment and a home and a family. They currently live in an 8 x 10 foot heated shed with lights and have all they need, but they want more human contact. They get lonely even though they have one another for companionship.
It would be nice if the three boys could find a home together. We realize that finding that "Special" someone who would like to keep these three friends together is a dream of ours, but we keep hoping and praying.
