My story

Porter is a Domestic Short Hair (DSH), male, DOB: 4/19/19.

Extremely outgoing and fearlessly bold, often to the point of being brash, Porter is a lively, always animated young feline character with an entirely endearing but definitely over-the-top and larger-than-life personality. Enthusiastically inquisitive with a check-it-out first, ask questions later mentality, he is looking to be present and involved in daily activities as much as possible. Independent exploration with the stalking and conquering of shadows, dust bunnies, toys, or anything else that moves – this too will be a big part of his daily agenda, but even so, Porter won’t wander far from activities or his favored people and other housemate pets.

Confident and pretty comfortable in his own skin, he’ll be looking for lots of interaction and playtime whether it be from people, other felines, or even canines – even better, a combination of all for this engaging and highly social feline. But while completely well-intentioned, he is an adventurous young swashbuckler who will most likely overwhelm shy, retiring, laid-back, and/or timid personalities with his zesty and brash, ruff-n-tumble, ambush-style antics and play-style, particularly if boundaries are not maintained and respected.

A sincerely loving young cat eager to share his affections with those he loves when opportunities are presented (and sometimes when they are not), he’ll reveal his sensitive, much softer-side as he begins to settle-down after play sessions, complete with genuine good-nature and delightfully sweet, uninhibited invitations for one-on-one attention. Seeking encouragement from gentle strokes and soft-spoken words, Porter revels in being close to people, he enjoys being held and snuggling in peoples’ arms (when it suits him), and he will choose attention and interaction with those he loves over just about any other activity.

Porter came to Monroe SPCA because of being injured as well as sick and starving, a young kitten, found outdoors and thought to be recently abandoned or orphaned. He has been treated for a URI, intermittent ear infections, ear mites, a jaw injury, Giardia, Coccidia, Roundworm, and fleas while with us.

Now a happy, healthy young cat, Porter is looking for his forever home with an individual or family who can give him the time and attention a young adventurer needs.

Porter is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. He is an extremely friendly and social young cat who will do well in just about any home environment so long as he is given the time he will need to adjust and get his bearings, including a home with other social cats; well-mannered, cat-friendly dogs; and respectful kids of all ages.

As with all Monroe SPCA adoptable animals, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to adoption.

Porter currently resides in a home with one of our foster volunteers. You can meet him by appointment with pre-approved adoption application. To start the adoption process, complete and submit Monroe SPCA’s adoption application linked above.

All Monroe SPCA cats available for adoption have an adoption fee of $85.00. This fee includes the cat being spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, dewormed, tested for FeLV and FIV, and microchipped with lifelong registration prior to adoption.

Completed applications can be emailed to info@monroespca.org or dropped off at Monroe SPCA’s Adoption Center and Retail Store located at 293 W. Monroe Street, Dundee, MI.

Once we receive your application, we will review it and call you to conduct a phone screening and schedule a meeting within two (2) to three (3) business days.
