Orange Tabby Personality Plus!
Teddy enjoys being petted and loved on. He'll even 'tell' you where he wants to be rubbed and scratched. This affection boy likes to play with toys and adores people, even though they haven't always treated him with kindness.
Born in 2005, Teddy was adopted from a shelter as a healthy, young kitten. But he was returned to that shelter six years later, after suffering a serious injury, most likely from being swung by the tail. He uses the litter box, but needs to have his bladder expressed two or three times a day because of what happened. He also leaks a little, especially when he sleeps, so putting a towel or puppy pad over his bed would be a good idea.
But you can't keep a good cat down! Despite the cruelty he experienced, Teddy holds no grudges. He still loves people, and is eager to make new friends. More than anything, he wants to find a special person to be his best friend in the world. Are you the compassionate cat-lover who can love Teddy, just the way he is?
