I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
Hi everyone! My name is Pearson, but all my friends call me Louie. I am a neutered male, 3-year-old, super handsome long-haired lapcat in search of my forever home. I am not your typical cat - in fact, in some ways, I'm more like a dog. When my humans come home, I greet them at the door with a friendly meow and face rub. For a treat, I'll sit on command. How cool is that? In addition to my cool tricks, I use the litterbox like a good boy and I don't scratch furniture as long as I have some flat scratching boards. I love nothing more than to hang out with my humans and be petted. In fact, if you stop petting me, I'll keep coming back for more. I might just rub my face on you to show you I love you and, if possible, hop up on your lap. If you're standing, I'll weave my way in and out of your legs and rub my face on you - I just love you and want you to know I'm here. With me around, you'll never watch movies, read a book or sleep alone ever again! I never hide, so you'll never have to look for me or wonder where I am. Just look down and you'll find me. You might be wondering why I crave so much attention - you see, I lived outside on a woman's porch for the first three years of my life and I didn't get very much affection or attention. One day, she noticed I seemed sick, so she called a very nice volunteer from PFL to come get me. They found out I have this thing called FIV, which means I have a compromised immune system. I was in pretty rough shape from lack of vet care and quality nutrition. I only have four teeth and some of my fur had to be shaved to get rid of the matted knots in my hair. But I don't let that stop me! I still eat all my dry and wet food and my fur is growing back very nicely. Best part is, now I can find a forever home where I can be with the humans I love so much. I can live a long, normal life with FIV as long I'm kept indoors. I look forward to many years with you! Give me a chance and I'll show you how awesome I am. Adoption fee: $60. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 60 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
