Facts about DEWEY

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
This handsome guy is Dewey. He looks so dashing with that sleek, shiny black coat with the perfect white contrasting bib and paws. Yes, his eyes are really that brilliant green! Dewey also has a large, muscular frame - just one big handsome cat package that will decorate your home just by being there.

Dewey's special need is that he has the herpes upper respiratory virus. This is not terrible, but it is contagious to other cats. Most cats developed immunity from most forms of herpes if nursed by their moms. The virus acts like an allergy - the cat can demonstrate runny eyes or perhaps sneezing. It is more obvious if the cat is stressed. It can be lessened by giving l-lysine treats (inexpensive and do not need an prescription). Dewey loves his chewy lysine treats!

Dewey's personality is best described as our "lounge cat". He just needs a TV, remote and a bag of ships and he'd be happy! Actually, Dewey loves to play, but is often outcompeted for the toys by the smaller, faster cats. We want Dewey to have a home so he can have his fair share of the toys.

Dewey does not like children or dogs. He is great with other cats, especially females (hey, as long as his markings indicate a fancy night, might as well share it with the ladies, right?!).
Dewey does like adults. He is not a lap cat or one to be carried around (usually uncomfortable for large cats).He likes soft brushes, gentle pets and for you to just talk with him - give him some attention.

We think Dewey has gotten an unfair shake in his life - dumped in the road and forced to try to grab food from resident barn cats, the moved to our rescue but that's not a real home. He deserves a home where he has less competition for attention, a better window view, a person he can rely on. He needs you -he's a best friend cat.

About Animal Resource Center

About Our Rescue Group...

ARC is a non-profit, no-kill pet adoption organization.
Our goal is to find caring forever homes for the animals, with an emphasis on owner education and pet behavioral support.
We believe that when owners understand a pet's behavior (evolutionary and history), they can then understand and are more likely to follow appropriate training and everyday care.

Our Adoption Process...

ARC requires an application which include a matching form so we can discuss with you the type of pet you want for your lifestyle and which pets would best be suited for your home.

We prefer that all family members come over to meet the pet so everyone is comfortable with their new family member and to answer any questions you might have. ARC provides free behavioral support for the lifetime of the adopted pet.

A contract and a $50 tax-deductible donation is required. If you cannot keep the pet, it must be returned to ARC, regardless of pet's age.

Pets are inside companion animals and cats that have claws may not be declawed.
