I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Gandalf, male Mitted Black Smoke Tabbyt Maine Coon mix, born approximately 3/10/12
Regular adoption fee: see below
Gandalf is a completely and total loverboy, he is super sweet and has the softest, silkiest coat. His paws are huge so it seems like he will be a good sized kitty when he reaches maturity in a few years, but for now he just wants to reach those big paws around your neck and be hugged. He is litterbox perfect, neutered, microchipped, current on his vaccines and ready to go to his furever home.
NOTE: Gandalf is what we call a ""Puffer": a cat with the coat quality,
facial structure, and feathering or tufting on the ears that distinguish
a Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest cat. Is Gandalf a purebred cat? He might
well be: we do find purebred cats in shelters. He could also be a Maine
Coon mix. Maine Coons are among the most popular breeds of cat, and
unfortunately, some of the same people who don't believe in spaying and
neutering also believe a cat should be allowed to roam outside. As a
result--regrettably--we find homeless Maine Coon kittens and mixes in
shelters quite often.
If you feel you need a guarantee that your kitten is purebred, then you
should contact a respectable breeder and buy a purebred kitten. If what
you want is to know how your cat will look as an adult--for example, if
you want to be sure that he or she will weigh 15 pounds or
more--consider adopting a young adult from the PPCR Maine Coon page.
Then, even if the cat you adopt isn't quite fully grown--cats of large
breeds mature slowly, often not until the age of 3 or 4--you will have a
good basis for predicting its eventual size, and other breed-specific
traits, such as personality, will already be apparent.
Gandalf is fostered in Lodi, CA. Contact Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 916-217-2151.
