Poe is a young adult. He is sometimes a bit wild, starting a game of chase throughout the cattery. Other times he is friendly and looking for some human attention. And other times I swear he rolls his eyes at me!
Poe does get along well with the other cats and his style of play is fast tag and wrestling, so similarly robust cats would be a good match. He is calming down a little and playing well enough with others. We do think he would be afraid of dogs, although older or very calm dogs would likely be ok with introductions.
Poe'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). Poe likes his chews!
We think a good home for Poe would be with adults that want to play some games with him, talk, give him some attention is what he needs.
Most of all Poe, needs you.
