Meow! My name is Maxwell
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Maxwell was first spotted by his rescuer last summer. He wandered onto her West Philly porch, bone-thin from starvation on the streets, with a torn-up ear. He was so skinny, it was hard to look at him, but after spending a few weeks in his kitty 'condo,' he put on weight. Shortly thereafter, poor Maxwell suffered some serious wounds and his rescuer brought him to the vet to get fixed up. Now he's healthy, happy, and ready to find his forever home! Maxwell is gentle and enjoys attention (though he doesn't like to be picked up). He seems like a wise, wordly kind of guy after all he's been through. His sleek black coat gives him a polished look, and his crumpled ear adds some character! Max doesn't like sharing his foster home with multiple cats and dogs, but we think he would do well in a home with one other pet or with kids. He's an all-around great companion who just wants a stable place to call home for the rest of his life. Please give Maxwell the second chance he deserves!
Maxwell is about 3-5 years old, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and has been tested/treated for fleas/parasites as needed.
About City Kitties' Veterinary Care: We provide high quality veterinary care for our foster cats and kittens. Each animal is spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and flea/parasite treatment as needed. Since they live in foster homes, you can see our adoptable animals in a familiar, stress-free environment, and their foster parents can tell you all about their personalities. If you have questions a week, a month, or even a year after adoption, we're available for guidance and support.
How to Adopt from City Kitties: Our adoptable animals are housed in private foster homes. The first step in meeting an adoptable animal is to fill out an adoption application. To ensure a lifelong match between you and your new pet, our adoption process involves an application, reference check, and a visit to your home at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is $85 to help subsidize the cost of veterinary care. You can read more about the adoption process and fill out an application on our website, www.citykitties.org.
