Meet Morris…this sweet boy has had quite the life so far. He was previously an indoor/outdoor boy who had a tendency to wander to visit everyone. Morris has had a rough life so far, so we are hoping that he is able to find the perfect home.
Morris came in as a stray, so we are unsure of his background other than the wandering. He was a little rough when he came to us but is healing and doing very well. He does enjoy being pet but he also has a limit to that. Morris will allow you to brush him, but not for long periods. As he was used to defending himself outdoors, we would like for him to not have to worry about that anymore. He would excel with a secure catio where everyone will be safe. Morris has done very well being inside, but he is definitely looking to being outdoors.
This big guy is a very sweet boy that will need some specific guidelines in his new home. Morris will need to be able to have access to the outdoors, either on a rural property or a very secure catio. As he was getting into scuffles in the neighbourhood, he cannot go to a home with other cats or small dogs. We feel that larger, respectful dogs would be manageable. He is a large boy, so small children or those looking for a cuddly cat they can hold will not be for Morris. He is independent for the most part and is going to need to have specific needs to keep him safe as well as others.
If Morris sounds like he may be a fit in your home, please visit the shelter to inquire more about Morris and his needs.
