Meow! My name is Goliath
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Goliath showed up at his caretaker's house as a big, jowly - and apparently feral - tomcat. After many months, quite suddenly, as she was putting food out one winter day, he walked right up to the food bowl before she'd moved away. She reached her hand out and was surprised that he let her pet him while he was eating. Soon after that, she contacted City Kitties and brought him to the vet for neutering and care. He was initially nervous around people, but he quickly warmed up and now purrs loudly and loves petting, treats and affection.
Goliath is playful and affectionate and seems to get along with other laid-back cats. He's a big boy, weighing in at over 15 pounds of solid muscle - he looks like a big, shiny black panther. This gorgeous boy would love to find a permanent indoor home. He'd probably do well in just about any situation.
Goliath is about 2-3 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.
