Maestro is a sweet tabby boy that has a raspy ‘old-man’ meow, loves to be brushed, and seeks affection whenever he’s awake. In his foster home, Maestro gets along OK with the resident cat but other than the occasional spontaneous cleaning session, they do not hang out together. He would rather snuggle with his human, on a lap, arm, leg, wherever he can fit, to receive attention and be told he’s a handsome boy. Even as the older, wiser feline, Maestro enjoys a good playtime session - catnip mouse toys and the cat charmer felt wand toy are his favorites but he’s known to dig through the toy basket for anything new. He likes to know where his foster mom is anytime she’s home and will meow until he receives a response, followed by prancing over for attention. If he manages to get on the desk chair behind his foster mom, Maestro will reach up and hug her neck and purr in her ear so that she turns around to pet him and shower him with compliments about how he’s such a good boy, it’s quite cute
He would do best in a quiet home, without young children. Maestro is OK with other cats, he seems to prefer older/senior felines, but is scared of dogs, and is more interested in attention from his human(s) rather than other furry creatures. If adopted into a home with another friendly feline, proper introduction procedures still need to be followed. Helpful guidelines for this process can be found on the 4Paws website.
Maestro was born in March 2006. He is on a prescription dry food only diet to prevent urinary problems and manage his weight. He has also been neutered, tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, is current on vaccinations, and has been micro chipped.
