My story

 



Fruit Bat is a one-of-a-kind toothless angel who will light up the life of any adopter! He may look a rugged tough guy, but Fruit Bat really is a sweet-as-pie gentleman who loves people. His favorite thing is to be by his person's side, preferably getting cheek scratches. He is an incredibly gentle dude who doesn't have a mean bone in his body, unless you are a rowdy dog..then he might throw some hisses your way. He spends most of his day lounging or following around his humans. 

Fruit Bat may be a senior, but he shows no signs of slowing down - he loves to chase his wand toy, and bounces around the house like a spring chicken. He is a source of constant smiles, with his hilarious somersaults and adorably delicate chirps. Fruit Bat's #1 obsession is food, and he will not be shy about trying to steal your own dinner. Keep him happy with some wet food or treats, and he will spend the whole night purring by your side. 

Fruit Bat spent some time on the street after being abandoned by his family, so he came to PAWS full of scars and battling a pretty major ear infection; This has left his ears looking a little rough, but that only adds character! He has some senior medical needs that an adopter should monitor with a full service vet including an ear polyp and early signs of kidney disease. He's currently a very comfortable and happy cat, who likely has many years left of love. Fruit Bat is a low maintenance guy with few day to day needs aside for a need for your attention! He is a true mush with a heart of gold, he can't wait to be your new sidekick! 

Age: 8-10 Years
How I came to PAWS: Found Stray
Animal ID#: 51591

Location: Foster Care. Please email megan@phillypaws.org to learn more about this kitty!

**FIV is specific to the feline species, and is not transmissible to dogs, humans, or any other animals. It is spread from cat to cat via mating or deep puncture bite wounds. Thankfully, all our cats are spayed or neutered so mating is no longer an option! Since FIV does not spread through casual contact like grooming, sneezing, and food/litter sharing, FIV+ cats can live with other cats that have tested negative as long as the cats get along without fighting.
