We'd like to introduce you to our friend, Sawyer. He's a 1 1/2 year old Domestic Medium Hair Brown Tabby. This fellow wandered into the yard of a volunteer at Houghton's MEOW Cat Rescue, giving no indication of where he'd come from. He was quite hungry and had some nasty mats in his fur, but was otherwise happy and healthy.
Sawyer is now neutered, microchipped, parasite treated, FeLV/FIV (feline leukemia/feline aids) tested, vaccinated and dewormed. This is one friendly and mellow boy. He is quick to make friends with everyone and has adjusted quickly to his new surroundings. Sawyer is also a lap cat and is always scoping out a friendly human to spend some time with. He's residing in one of the free-roaming rooms at MEOW and is getting along very well with the other resident cats. However, Sawyer does not like dogs and shouldn't be placed in a home with one.
Sawyer is a young cat and has no medical concerns or issues at this time.
Sawyer's "feline-ality" is a Personal Assistant. The definition of a Personal Assistant: "You're working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I'll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I'll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don't you? I'll help you with all your chores and I'll help you relax when we're done. You'll wonder how you ever managed without me."
If you’re looking for a feline companion, you are invited to come and meet Sawyer. See www.meowcatrescue.org or call 425-822-6369.
