In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.
Milo may look a little rough around the edges but this guy is pure love. He loves to be a part of the family, and will start to chat as he enters a room, and wind himself between your legs softly purring for a little bit of attention, asking for pets on his bunny soft black fur. He doesn't mind being held and will make biscuits on your arm as you snuggle him. He LOVES a good 'Da Bird' wand toy session. This ten year old boy truly does not show his age. Milo grazes on dry food throughout the day, in between sessions of napping, and watching the real world out of the window. He also enjoys chunky wet food. He enjoys the company of other cats, and will chirp when he sees them. He does not get along with dogs, and would not do well in a home with dogs. He would be fine in a home with other cats, or as an only cat. This ten year old guy sure does need a break in life. He does have tattered ears, and a clouded eye (which does not affect his health or happiness), but hardly holds any grudges. Just give him a few days in his new home (yours!) to figure things out. He may be timid and contemplative at first. He uses his tall sturdy scratching post, does not have litter box issues, and is over all, an absolutely perfect cat. He truly is the whole package.
