Hi there, my name is Malachy, nice to meet you. I'm in a good place right now and I'm feeling pretty healthy. Foster mom says it's because I'm on a weight control diet. I can't say I agree because I'm always starving and she doesn't get the hint when I suggest its snack time or dinner time. I think another reason I'm feeling pretty good is I'm the only cat in my foster home. I have all the time in the world to rest, I get all the attention from foster mom and dad, I can greet all the visitors to the house, I have lots of fun toys to play with and my own litter boxes. The only thing that could be better is finding my furever home.


FOSTER NOTES: Malachy has said it all. He is a talkative and a very calm kitty who enjoys being around people. He is big, though not big on being picked up. He will follow his foster parents around and usually come when he hears his name called. His favorite playtime is every night before bed. This gets him relaxed enough to sleep the night at the foot of the bed. In the morning he goes downstairs to wait for foster mom to serve breakfast. No in your eye wakey wakey from this fellow. He is very patient. Malachy came to our foster home as a cat who was intimidated living in a multi-cat foster home. He is doing much better now that he is a solo cat, and we recommend this be the same situation in his future home. He is on a calorie restricted diet and eats wet food and dry food from a puzzle bowl to slow his eating. He is terrific when visitors come to the house. He will wait at the top of the stairs to be called down for an introduction. Due to being stressed in his previous multi-cat household, Malachy had unreliable litter box habits. In his current foster home, after close observation, trial and error, modifications, use of multiple boxes, litter types and placement locations we are having better success with encouraging his consistent use of the litterbox . He uses an oversized litterbox modified with a cut out entry with Fresh for Life paper litter in one room. Boxicat litter is in a very shallow tin pan in another room. Both litterpans are surrounded by puppy pads (that he sometimes poops on or pees on). Consistency is needed until full use of the box/pan is achieved. I think we're getting there, time will tell. Malachy does not travel well in a carrier. We are working on him being comfortable being in the carrier with the door closed. So we suggest no long trips nor lots of travelling for this guy. He's a home-body. Malachy needs a home where is the only pet, where he has people who love him and spend time with him, who are consistent and patient with him and do not plan to take him on trips. He is such a sweet guy he will reward you with his love and devotion.


ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee is $225.00 (which includes a health check, first vaccination in a series and any that become due while in care, first anti-parasite treatments needed in care, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). There is a 10% discount when you adopt 2 cats/kittens. The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters, anti-parasite treatments that are needed after adoption. Kittens usually need 3 vaccines, one month apart starting at age 7 weeks. Juveniles and Adult cats usually require 2 vaccines one month apart in the first year, then annual vaccines. Deworming is recommended at the time of each vaccine appointment. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that your Veterinary clinic may be experiencing backlogs in scheduling appointments, so do not delay calling your clinic to book your new cat's needed booster appointment(s). Please note that cats are not tested for FIV/FeLV nor can FIP be predicted. We will share any medical information gathered during our health checks and observations revealed during their time in care. But it is important to know that some illnesses can have an incubation period of 10 days, which means that a cat can leave in good health but get sick a few days post adoption. In addition, the stress of a new environment can affect a cats’ immune system.


APPLICATION NOTE: The application for this cat/kitten may close quickly depending on the number of applications received. As our goal is to find the best match based on the cat(s) needs, only those chosen for a meet-and-greet will be contacted via email.
