Oh tripod boy! Get ready to fall in love with Vine! Vine is a playful high-energy tripod (tripaw’d) who is always dressed to impress in his fancy grey tuxedo. When he isn’t finding lint/rocks/toys/bits of plastic to play with by himself, he loves to cuddle with you or your other friendly cats.
Being down a back leg has not stopped him from running all over his foster house, nor has it dampened his healthy appetite for yummy kibbles and lots of fresh water. He is a wrestling champion with his foster brother as well as a very soft and warm heater pad on your chest or stomach when he cuddles. He likes to play with mice and strings and enjoys being pet all over his body including his stomach. It took him a little while to get comfortable with his foster brother and he kept his distance and gave gentle warning meows but once he got comfortable, they have been thick as thieves. Other hobbies include looking out the window, rolling around on the ground, and helping you do yoga. Vine would be good in a home with kids, adults, sweet cats, and maybe nice gentle playful dogs (unknown).
