Meet Persi! We rescued this little tabby tuxedo from an apartment complex dumpster where he was living as a semi-feral cat on his own. Since then, Persi has socialized into a confident and extremely loving and social housecat.
He is a young kitty and he enjoys playing with every single toy he has encountered so far — wands, mice, scratchers, and even full-sized tennis balls. He’s a voracious eater, most likely from his days of being on the streets – he still feels he has to catch up. He’s assertive and communicative so you’ll hear him meow for his food.
Persi is a very social kitty who has gone from being a semi-feral cat who wouldn’t let you touch him to being a complete petting addict — he loves head rubs, back petting, and cheek rubs and can go for a loooong time. Given how much he loves being around people already, we are confident he will open up even more within just a few short weeks of being with his full-time family (right now, we can only spend about 30-40 min / day with him, as he is separated from the rest of our pet household).
Persi had his first SNAP FeLV test come back positive, but a second IFA test came NEGATIVE. He’ll be tested again in some weeks to confirm that he’s FeLV negativ, but for the time being, Persi would be a good fit for families who:
- Have no cats (dogs ok)
- Have FeLV-negative cats who are vaccinated against the virus
Persi is a GREAT FIT for families looking for a friendly and VERY loving indoor cat to add to their household. Persi will be constantly by your side, and always peering into your face — he is social and loves to interact and communicate (not the ‘aloof’ type at all). He is also a fantastic athlete who loves to play.
