Spottie was found as a two year old stray in the London Road area in 2013. It's always difficult to understand why such nice cats end up homeless. He was in a foster home for a couple of years, went on to be adopted in 2016, but sadly, was returned through no fault of his in May, 2017.
In the words of his experienced foster guardians --"Spottie is a very well-rounded cat: well behaved & mild mannered. Nevertheless, he can get restless and thus demands attention from people at regular intervals – preferably by rubbing his haunches, hips and bum [against you]! He’ll also show affection by rubbing his nose and muzzle against you, even hopping on his hind legs to give you a nose-bump; he shows a lot of his affection through his mouth – and sometimes gets carried away with a little nip. His purr has a masculine rumble to it, and it is quite easy to get it going if he’s in the mood - and you rub the right spots. If you get to know his patterns, he will play with a string toy, but you must be very patient: he’s a stalker, pouncer and chewer. Like any good cat, Spottie enjoys bright sunny days and a nice, sun spot to lay and clean himself in. We occasionally take him on walks outside around the house [with a harness and leash]." His foster guardians started doing this because they felt he was missing having a playmate. His buddy, Noah, another PAW foster cat, was adopted a few months ago and his most recent roomie, Millicent, has gone on a trial adoption...but she didn't really want to wrestle with Spottie. He would love to have another playful cat in his life. He would also enjoy having a safe outdoor space like a catio.
For entertainment, Spottie loves cat grass; his foster parents say he is a "happy camper" when there's a steady supply. He also enjoys thicker paper (newspaper and such) to tear into and pounce on. He's a fun fellow.
