Stanley’s human grew up and moved away, so he is lonely. He would be great for a retiree or someone who works from home and wants companionship.
Stanley just turned 12, and he is neutered and healthy and will likely live another good 5-8 years. He is an indoor-only cat. He needs to be the only cat of the house, but he would probably do fine with a low-key dog.
I am allergic to him, so he doesn’t get much petting or affection any more. He would have a happier life with someone who can give him the love he deserves.
Cute things: He’s very affectionate. He likes to be pet. He likes to rub against your legs when you’re standing, and especially when you’re getting his food ready. His favorite thing in the world is to sit next to you on the couch and rub against you while you’re reading or watching tv. That’s his version of cuddling! He likes to play with toys, especially little balls or stuffed toys. He gets super excited if you throw him a little toy to run after. Sometimes he’ll chase his tail, like a kitten, for no reason at all. He purrs when he’s happy or content. He has the cutest little snore sometimes when he’s napping.
Great things: He’s very healthy. He has never once gone outside the litter box! He loves to be brushed! If you brush him even once every couple of weeks, you won’t be gifted with any hairballs. He likes to have a pillow on the couch to knead, but doesn’t scratch the furniture. He has a favorite scratching post and only scratches there. He is not loud, and hardly meows at all. He sleeps at night. He is independent enough to be comfortable if you go on vacation and have a friend drop by to feed him.
Annoying things: Stanley has a few pretty typical food-oriented cat quirks ~ he will eat human food you leave within his reach. He will eat any plastic bag you leave within his reach. He will chew on houseplants in reach. He will chew on computer cords and phone charging cords (not regular appliance cords ~ only those smooth, round, rubbery-textured ones), so you have to keep them out of reach or cover them with cord protectors. He will eat anything string-like he can find: string, ribbons, twine, rubber bands, etc… but he does not chew on shoelaces for some inexplicable but very appreciated reason. :)
If you don’t mind kitty-proofing a bit to dissuade him from trying to eat things he shouldn’t, he ‘s a sweet boy and an affectionate companion. He would be happy in a home where he can hang out near a human friend on a fairly regular basis.
