Story
Louie is a loving, sweet, active, adventurous but anxious almost four year old boy who loves to romp around a safe backyard & cuddle. He's an excellent hunter and will catch all of the bugs and flying insects if you let him. He's smart and food motivated, which is great for training; he already knows some tricks like sit, spin, and how to stand up! I adopted him when he was 3 months old and unfortunately my partner is allergic to his fur and dander. He is a king in his own (and our) mind and would love to have someone to cuddle, play, and head bump with. He would do best with: - being an only cat or with someone who has experience properly introducing cats to each other. - a safe backyard and a quiet house - females (loud male voices make him hide) - someone who can give him all the attention he deserves

Story
We need somebody to foster Phoenix for 11 or 12 months and we are willing to pay up to $300 a month + all his essentials: food, litter, toys, litter box, sleeping bed, and so on. Phoenix is a emotional support animal very caring, calm, and who loves to cuddle. We moved in to a small apartment and Phoenix remains awake at night meowing which prevent us from sleeping, and this is affecting our lives cause I have Asperger's syndrome and my husband has bipolar disorder, so sleeping well is essential for us. We want to rent a big house when our lease ends so phoenix can have plenty space to stay awake at night, and so we to sleep. Till there, we need somebody to foster him
