My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

DISCLOSURE: The adoptable pets in our program are still in the care and custody of owners who wish to re-home their pet. Owners have enlisted Rescue Well to provide marketing and screening of applicants as a service, free of charge. All fees and adoption conditions are determined by the owner. We advise that adopters do not send payment or deposits for pets prior to adopting. 

*****



Miles is 4 years old and weighs 12 lbs.  He is neutered, is up to date on his vaccines, is microchipped and is FeLV/FIV negative, as veterinary records will substantiate.  Miles does not like to be picked up or held and he's senstive to loud noises.  He meows when in his carrier while in a vehicle transporting him to the vet.  "[Miles] is in a large 2-room space with windows.  We keep him separated from our other cats.  In the evenings, we usually close our cats in a separate room and let Miiles roam the house with us.  He loves to play, and will even snort and huff when he's really into it.  He also likes human company and affection - he lays around and purrs whenever I'm with him - but he is not a 'lap cat'." 

Scratch incident:  Some time in October 2022, Miles scratched one of his guardians in the home; the skin was not broken and animal control was not involved.  Guardian further explains:  " No medical attention was required. Miles does not like to be picked up or held, but my husband tried to pick him up to carry him upstairs. He meowed and tried to get down, and then scratched when my husband did not put him down."

Miles's guardian states the reason she has made the decision to rehome him:  " We adopted MIles after the most senior of our three cats died last spring. We thought our other young male cat, who loves to play and pester our middle-aged female cat, would benefit from having another young male cat playmate. Unfortunately our middle-aged female is not on board with this arrangement. She and Miles cannot tolerate each other, despite all our efforts at a slow and careful introduction, and unfortunately, we have to keep Miles in his own “suite” in our house now."

Brief medical history:  " Miles is in good health and is up to date on all of his vaccinations. When he arrived at BARCS, he had crystals in his urine. He was put on prednisone and a prescription diet, and he has not had any issues since we have had him."

Miles's guardian states the following about children:  Miles has lived with older teens (17 & 18 yo).  " In Miles’s time with us, he has not been around any children outside of our home. I think he would be good with teens, but Miles is a bit anxious of noises and sudden movements, so he might be nervous in an environment with younger children."  Therefore, Miles's guardian doesn't recommend his living with children.

Miles's guardian states the following about dogs:  "In Miles's time with us he hasn't been around other dogs outside of our home."   Therefore, Miles's guardian doesn't recommend his living with dogs.

Miles's guardian states the following about cats:  Miles lives with cats.  " I think Miles would do best as an only cat, though he and our younger male cat have tolerated each other. He has not done well with older female cats. "  Therefore, Miles's guardian doesn't recommend his living with cats.

Miles's guardian describes his future ideal home:  " I think Miles’s ideal home would be where he’s an only cat (or perhaps with another young male cat), without young children, in a calm, quiet household where his personality can blossom. He would do well with a patient, experienced cat family with patience who will give him time to relax and blossom, and who can appreciate his unique personality (like how he eats with his paws!). He loves to play, and will even snort and huff when he’s really into it. He also likes human company and affection - he lays around and purrs whenever I‘m with him - but he is not a “lap cat.” We don’t know anything about Miles’s life before his loving foster family (who had a good experience with him), but I get the sense that he has experienced trauma or mistreatment. It takes him a long time to develop trust, and he still tends to pull away when I reach over him to pet him."
